Sorrow...and Joy

Prince Alexandre of Belgium, who died suddenly on Sunday, was buried this morning in a chapel adjacent to the Royal Crypt, at the Church of Our Lady in Laeken. The sober, discreet funeral ceremony was attended by the Belgian royal family, and by others wishing to pay their last respects to the Prince.

On a happier note, today is also the 10th wedding anniversary of Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde. Best wishes to Belgium's future King and Queen!
