Courage Madame la Reine!

Courage Madame la Reine

Courage Madame la Reine

One of the most poignant moments surrounding the funeral of Baudouin came when his body was transferred from Laeken to the palace at Brussels. The cortege stoppied at the Colonne du Congrès, repose le Soldat inconnu (monument of the unknown soldier). The royal family listens as the Brabant is played. When the queen is getting back into the vehicle, someone shouted, “Courage Madame la Reine!” Her deep courage and strength carried her through the events of the funeral and oath of Albert II.

You can hear the shouts of encouragement at the end of this video.
