One thought on “King Baudouin’s Funeral

  1. King Baudouin was indeed a special person. It was so sad when he and Queen Fabiola couldn’t have children. I’m sure they would have been loving and doting parents. I remember his funeral. It was quite remarkable because Queen Elizabeth II attended and she rarely if ever does, especially if it’s out of the country. It’s such a palaver when she travels abroad that she sends a representative. But I guess that’s where King Baudouin was different. She wanted to go herself- and that tells a story.
