Lilian As A Child
Already a lively, mischievous beauty. In Un couple dans la tempête (2004), a popular account of the romance of Leopold and Lilian, the story is told of the five-year-old Lilian playing with matches and setting fire to the curtains (pp. 36-37). Needless to say, she earned a slap and a severe scolding!
