King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola - picture from a postcard which I
recieved from Oscar Meiyer - 
Creator of the Dutch blog: 'De Staat van Oranje'.

King Baudouin married Queen Fabiola in 1960.
They were a very happy couple but they could not have children.

Queen Fabiola doesn't appear much in public anymore, but for the
Queen Elisabeth Music Contest
she gladly makes an exception.
