Came across a remarkable memorial tribute by Astrid's parents talking about the loss of their daughter, particularly in relation to Leopold being the driver.


''When we, Queen Astrid's parents, accompanied our daughter, as your Kings wife, to her new home, nearly nine years ago; her father said that we could leave our beloved child to her husband and to the Belgium people, with joy and entire confidence.

This confidence has never for a single moment been betrayed. Much more, from the moment our dear Astrid set foot on Belgium soil, the whole nation has surrounded her with a love which grew in strength and warmth with the years passed.

Nobody better than us, her parents, know that the people's love and confidence in her desire to give herself entirely to her new country, gave her strength and made her happiness as wife and mother complete, and nobody knows better than us that this happiness remained clear and lasting.

Nobody will wonder therefore that we should consider it a dear duty to bring the Belgian people our deep and heartful thanks for the love which they always surrounded our beloved daughter.

Your dead queen from her Nordic home, loved Belgium. The love of the nation found an echo in her warm young heart. Great is our sorrow, but greater still is our sympathy for your young king and his little children, and our gratitude to him for everything he was for her, and for the great happiness he gave her.

Please, Lello, more info on the Belgian RF such as Astrid, her parents, Baudoin, etc.  I love the historic bits as well as the photos.
