Remembering The Deceased

Today, a eucharist celebration dedicated to the memory of the departed members of the Belgian royal family took place at the Onze Lieve Vrouw-church in Laeken, a suburb of Brussels in which the official home of the Belgian royal family is situated.

Almost the complete family of King Albert II of the Belgians was at hand for the mess, including his two Luxembourgish nieces, daughters of his sister Josephine-Charlotte: Belgian-based Princess Marie-Astrid and her husband Archduke Carl Christian of Austria as well as Princess Margaretha who made her way from Liechtenstein accompanying her aunt Queen Fabiola to the event. In fact Princess Margaretha, who lives in Liechtenstein after the resignation of her husband as Liechtenstein's ambassador in Belgium, still spends a lot of time in Brussels for meetings and such.
