Here are pics from this year's rembrance mass for king Boudewijn. Fabiola was accompanied by her Luxemburg niece princess Margaretha and husband prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein.

Can't tell from the pics if there were any others.

Astrid & Lorenz were there too.
Thank you both! I believe the Queen is especially close to her niece Marguerite of Liechtenstein, so it is nice that she accompanied her aunt.

Good to know that Astrid and Lorenz were there as well, a pity we don't have pictures of them.

Any pictures of Fabiola's attendance of the remembrance mass for Queen Astrid (or the funeral of Prince Antoine de Ligne), I believe she was escorted by her nephew Guillaume of Luxembourg and his lovely wife Sybilla.

She looks so elegant! I like the wearing of white to a funeral: the color seems much more flattering than severe black. :( It's nice to see pictures of her.
here's another one of her at the funeral of the prince de Ligne, inside the church.

Lovely to see her out and about. Is the visit a private visit, I have not seen it mentioned on the royal calender?
If its not mentioned it's private yes. I agree, lovely to see her. she's not in the news much but actually still quite active.
Here are some more old pictures of Fabiola and Baudouin (all scanned by Chris from paris match)

This is such a wonderful and interesting thread! Many thanks to Cathérine and all the others who filled it with pictures of one of Europe's greatest royal ladies! :)
This week queen Fabiola was present at a reception and ceremony at the Thai embassy in Brussels, to celebrate the 70th birthday of king Bhumibol of Thailand. Fabiola wore a clear blue and purple silk Tai gown, very elegant, with a beautiful necklace. A pitty there are no pictures ....

Later in the week she opened a new home for elder people. When asked where she still found all the energy to do this she answered, "from my husband, the king".

I am so happy I found this thread! From an early age I always admired this couple, so I am very glad to see pictures of them here. This couple has shown what real royalty is truly about! I still remember that, while visiting Antwerp, the King and Queen unexpectedly stopped the car and went to talk to the prostitutes. It was very impressive and I cannot think of any other royal couple who would do that. I believe that the king and queen were so shocked by their sad stories that they did everything to help those women & they could actually change the lives of some of those women. One of them spoke on the funeral of King Boudewijn.

Yes I totally agree with you, the royal couple are really touched and very close to belgian people, very caring of them so I'm very proud of them :D

Long live to our lovely Queen Fabiola!
