Belgium's royal family has apologized to members of the public who were sent official cards that wrongly appeared to announce the death of King Philippe's mother. The palace said 150 people who sent letters of condolence on the death in December of Paola's sister-in-law Queen Fabiola received replies thanking them for their "comforting words following the death of Her Majesty Queen Paola". Queen Fabiola, the Spanish widow of Albert's late brother King Baudouin, died on Dec. 5 aged 86.
