In Memory of Queen Fabiola of Belgium (1928-2014)

One year ago, Her Majesty, Queen Fabiola of Belgium, died.  Her death, while anticipated due to continuing health problems associated with age, left a loss that still feels painful for Belgium, even after a full year. Yet, for the people of Belgium, this was a life to celebrate, not in the partying sense, but with a feeling a gratitude, grateful that this woman who came from Spain would step up to the plate, and serve her adopted country & leave the world a better place. She did that, and did it well.

MARRIAGE OF KING BAUDOUIN TO FABIOLA de MORA y ARAGON
15 December 1960–Cathedral of St. Michael & St. Gudula

It was a Royal Marriage that would last until the unexpected death of the King in 1993. From images we see via the Internet, they seemed to be always in support of one another. Never did I read of any discontent. Instead, they seemed made for each other in a way that is almost beyond contemporary understanding. My interest in Belgium & their Royal Family has been long-term, and it is my hope that this simple tribute, in words & visuals, demonstrates the positive impact that this woman from Spain had on many lives.

She was born in Madrid, 11 June 1928, in the Palacio Zurbano. She was no stranger to being high born. Yet, from her earliest days, she seemed to have a strong instinct to provide care for others, eventually entering training to become a nurse.

The ironic sadness was that she could not have children of her own. After 5 miscarriages, it became clear that the Throne of Belgium would pass to the King’s younger brother & his wife, Prince Albert & Princess Paola.

HERE WE SEE SCENES OF THEM FULFILLING PUBLIC DUTIES DURING THEIR TIME TOGETHER AS KING & QUEEN OF BELGIUM

 

After the death of the King, Her Majesty graciously took a more minor role in Royal Duties, in order not to overshadow her Sister-in-Law, the New Queen, Paola.

She quietly came “into her own” despite the “Dowager” status of being a Widowed Queen. She was fun-loving & mixed well with younger people, seeming to gain a strength & energy from them. In her later years, some deranged person posed death threats to Queen Fabiola, stating his intention to kill her with his bow & arrow. In response to the uproar over this, she publicly held up an Apple, in reference to the Legend of William Tell. Her sense of timing was better than his, and she won legions of new fans by this action.

QUEEN FABIOLA, THE FUNNIEST MEMBER OF THE BELGIAN ROYAL FAMILY

As with us all, this thing called life must come to an end. She died @ Stuyvenger Castle, Laeken, Belgium 5 December 2014. Her funeral was attended by people from all over the world. Royal families representing nearly all the remaining Monarchies of Europe were in attendance, except the House of Windsor & the Princely House of Grimaldi. Such absence was inexcusable.

To end with these stunning & simple photographic tributes.

May Queen Fabiola, the Queen of all the Belgians, remain in their hearts forever & May she rest in Eternal Peace, Amen.

 

Bonaparte Passport Binge Bums Bureaucracy!

The function of a Passport is to create jobs for people who can’t work in the real world? Or is it to give permission to cross imaginary boarders legally, so that you can go to Constantinople & end up in jail there for doing what the locals do? You got me! But without a Passport, once I go to Constantinople (which is illegally called Istanbul), I can’t come back here.

Princess Melita Bonaparte explains that Passports were issued according to the Bible. I knew she’d say that. She claims to be kin to King Solomon. I looked it up in Wikipedia, and found out that what she said appears to be true. But she claims that Passports are now issued by Multiplex Cinemas & that’s how she got hers, by going to see films all the time & having them issue her a new Passport almost weekly. “I wanted to be able to go to every country in the world,” she said.

The Passport Office Staff were so fed up with the obvious (to them) document fraud, that one of them shot Princess Melita Bonaparte.  The passport office worker quit her job that very day, and is still on the lam.

In English history, King Henry V issued the first Passport, and Princess Melita Bonaparte claims to have that in her possession, and uses this as proof that she SHOULD be the reigning Monarch of the United Kingdom. “I keep in touch will all world issues by reading People Magazine, the National Enquirer, and going to action films. This qualifies me to be far more suited to manage the country than any of those Bush people!” The Princess screamed this so loudly @ 3:00, that car alarms went off, and someone called the police. False Alarm.

She, of course, got caught…

What worked as a #Megamoviefan did not work as a form of legal identity.  #shareAMC tried to explain that they had no control of Princess Melita Bonaparte's affairs, foreign or domestic.

The Imperial Princess really did think that she could have endless passports all over the world, due to her Imperial & Royal status.

Many will shake their heads with disbelief--but Princess Melita truly thought that #Maleficent was a country, same as #Transformers, #Godzilla.  For some reason, she did not have that level of confusion about #Spider-Man.  She thought he issued the Passport, and that it was a perfectly legal document.  Her response to being asked what was the reason she was making a trip to any given country, was to reply, "#staycation."

The Bonaparte Princess got #staycation confused with the song made famous by singer #ConnieFrancis. We had to include a video, to show her the difference in spelling!

The Bonaparte Princess was so in love with #Spider-Man, that she thought she could get away with claiming that they were married.  It did not work, as Spider-Man ripped off her mask, to protect his legal rights from being compromised. It created much tension between France & USA.

After Spider-Man drew his line in the sand (or webbed her out of his life), Princess Melita Bonaparte turned to #Hercules for help.  By that time she was in a state of desperation, having violated all the #Anti-Hapsburg laws in #Austria.  She had no where to go.

Her last attempt @ Passport fraud was having her twin brother, Prince Roland Bonaparte II (better known as #CaptainSpaulding), pose for her. Her thinking was that no one would be able to tell the difference!  This attempt almost worked, airport security let her get through.  It was not till she got out the gin & had too  much, that she gave herself away!

One of her other relatives (who prefers not to be identified, because he actually still has a Throne) got her a “Passport” that passed.

#Rumourhasit that the recent abdication of His Majesty, The King of Spain, was traced to his illegal effort to help his cousin Princess Melita Bonparte, obtain this illegal, but much more professional looking Passport.  We hope that she does not end up wearing an orange jump suit, unless it comes from the House of Versace.

We were saddened to learn of the Abdication of His Majesty, King Juan Carlos of Spain. We were stunned to learn that it was because of his efforts to help his befuddled cousin gain access to Greece to help in the Restoration of their Monarchy.

Princess Melita Bonaparte Volunteers to Take CEO Position @ ORACLE

I HAVE NO QUALIFICATIONS FOR THIS JOB, OTHER THAN MY UNPARALELLED BEAUTY & TRANQUILITY OF SPIRIT. I WOULD SAVE THE SERBIAN PEOPLE MONEY, AS THEY WOULD NEED TO CHOSE ANOTHER QUEEN REGNANT, BUT THE MONEY I EARN AS CEO OF ORACLE WOULD GO TOWARDS THE RESTORATION OF THE GREEK, PORTUGUESE, AND ROUMANIAN MONARCHY.

IF THE PEOPLE OF SCOTLAND WANT INDEPENDENCE IT MUST BE WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITION: I, HER IMPERIAL & APOSTOLIC HIGHNESS, PRINCESS MELITA BONAPARTE, WILL BECOME THEIR MOST CATHOLIC MAJESTY & WITH THAT SECURELY IN PLACE, EDINBURGH WILL BECOME THE RICHEST CITY IN THE WORLD. THE COMBINATION WILL BE UNMATCHED IN THE HISTORY OF MONARCHY, BUSINESS, POLITICS AND BEAUTIFUL JEWELRY

Her Imperial & Apostolic Highness, The Princess Melita Bonaparte, posed before the post mortem (some question good taste & authenticity, but the Princess claims this is a True Fact & cannot be denied or questioned) before the head of her beloved ancestor, Mary Queen of Scots. "I cannot just sit by & watch my beloved Scotland lose their identity & turn into a another frozen-yogurt, banana republic, without at least trying to show them a a better way of life, pleaded the Princess.

Melita Fashionista: How An Imperial Princess Puts A Face On Fashion!

Her Imperial Highness is no dummy when it comes to fashion, understanding that individual style is much more important than keeping up with the latest runway collection. But there is a blandness about models & manniquins that the Princess finds very upsetting.

“It hurts to see that our uniqueness as people is not given the credit it needs. So, I decided to put a face on fashion, mine!” Thus, it is that Princess Melita Bonaparte, the Most Beautiful Woman in the World, has now entered the world of haute couture simply by being a model herself, not charging a thing for her services.

“I just want people everywhere to know that they can be somebody, and how better to express this concept than by being a model for various clothing lines? It is a wonderful project that I hope will bring joy to millions who don’t know how to become computer programmers. Just be beautiful and let others take your photograph! It’s harder work than you may think,” declares the Princess.

The charm of song lyrics about San Francisco appeal to the Princess, & she readily agreed to participate in this project.

"Retaining my connection to the Emperor Napoleon & our Bonaparte heritage, gets me all excited," the Princess breathed heavily to us whilst being interviewed.  Her Imperial Highness is the Mistress of Multi-Task, being photographed & interviewed @ the same time!

"It was all new to me," explained the Princess.   "I must admit, by the end of the day, I was exhausted.  Being a perfectionist, I had thousands of 'takes' before carefully choosing the right one.  I lost so much weight. I think I got down to 93 pounds & still felt fat."   Here the Princess in seen with a Belgian lace veil, an accessory she insisted was in keeping with her Mediterranean heritage.

“My hope in doing this was to help raise awareness of the need to Restore the Greek Monarchy. I want to help pave the way for their return to their rightful place in Greek history & culture. They should not be relegated to antiquity.”Princess Melita Bonaparte: THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD.

PRINCESS MELITA BONAPARTE GETS DOWN TO CONSTRUCTING RESTORATION OF GREEK MONARCHY!

Her Imperial Highness, The Princess Melita Bonaparte follows in the path left by her Grandmother, Princess Marie Bonaparte, The Princess Andrew of Greece. The Greek Republic, all the dictatorships that have come & gone their nasty way, have left her totally unfazed. “They were not true Greeks, they cared only about personal glory. I have only dumpsters for them,” she tells us.

“The so-called Republic is terrible. They treated us, their Royal Family, terribly. They let Tatoi Palce go rack & ruin. It is up to me to make it habitable once again, so show to the world that Greek Culture did not end with St Paul, but has evolved like others. We are a modern Constitutional Monarchy that has been bullied by greedy politicians. We are eager to return, live within our means, and want to give our lives in the service of the Greek people. It is only a matter of time that the clouds of lies with be lifted. Once that happens, we will be vindicated, and return to the people who love us, who have missed us–and never leave them again.”

With that, Princess Melita Bonaparte wasted no time demonstrating her construction skills with a bulldozer, in perparation to adding a new wing to Tatoi Palace. “It will be used mostly to house antiquities of the more recent centuries, since about 1000 A.D., explained the Princess. “With a history as ancient as ours is, you cannot just lump all things together. People need to be able to take things in, one Era at a time. We look forward to the time we can focus on these matters instead of dealing with mean crooks who take these items to auction houses, at the expense of our heritage.”

Princess Melita Bonaparte considers the heritage of Greece priceless.  "All Eras must be given equal consideration. All have contributed to Greek culture as we know it today.  It is my job as part of the Royal Family to make sure that heritage is properly curated & stays in Greece."

Princess Melita Bonaparte demonstrates that she is not afraid to work. " I am married to Greek culture & ideals. I believe that a wedding dress should not be used only for one day, but should be used to renew your vows of fidelity at every opportunity. I eat breakfast in mine."

No one understands this concept more than Princess Melita Bonaparte.  "I personally think that the money spend on Castro Street was not a good idea.  I needed more jewelry & a better wardrobe in my role as a Member of the Greek Royal Family.  They could have extended the Marshal Plan to help with the Restoration of the Greek Monarchy."

Anti-Monarchist hecklers surrounded Princess Melita Bonaparte & threw her into the path of her personal bulldozer.  This sort of civil disruption is why she feels that she needs to return to Greece to restore respect & lawful government. She narrowly escaped with her life, but later granted a pardon to those who were uneducated as to recent events in Greek history.  They walked away in awe & wonder--fully loyal to the Monarchy.

“I DEMAND TOTAL SILENCE FROM THE QUIET ONES”–Princess Melita Bonaparte

“Noise. Noise. Noise. Everyone makes noise, but no one says anything,” grumped Princess Melita Bonaparte. I heard too much noise today & am in a bad mood. If I am in a bad mood, you need to go into hiding!”

With that, we see that Mt. Vesuvius has put us on notice.

But wait, there’s hope. Her Imperial Highness had a photo-shoot today, and nothing pleases her or calms her down like the flash of light that comes from “Just one more, please, Your Highness.” Her mood lifted considerably. And she permitted Easter to be celebrated.

But, be careful! This happy time might not last too long. She thought she was going to get the part, and that the photo-shoot was being done to announce her being cast in the about-to-be shown film. How can we approach her & tell her that this is another done deal?

Who is willing to die for art?

Princess Melita Bonaparte is in a snit. “They clearly indicate that this is based upon real events. The real events were taken directly from my childhood. And I remember when college professors thought it their duty to smoke all during their classes,” coughed the despairing Princess.

They take & take & take--I can only suffer..Someday, the Greek government will thank me for my efforts in Restoration of their Monarchy!  Till then, I die for my art."

Princess Melita Bonaparte Waits to be Proclaimed as New Egyptian Monarch!

Her Imperial Highness waits for the Constitutional Amendment which will invite her to become the first 21st Century Queen of Egypt. The details will need to be worked out, but her wish is to be allowed permission to have a reign of joy, for the benefit of all concerned, and an end to strife that does no one any good.

She is the most beautiful woman in the world. That is her only propaganda. If said frequently enough, this harmless thing will make people smile, laugh, and wonder why they waited so long to restore the Egyptian Monarchy. It won’t be the first time in history that a foreign-born Monarch will have occupied the Egyptian throne. It will be a time of great freedom & respect for all peoples, in keeping with the authentic values that Egypt gave to the rest of the world so many centuries ago. Just keep repeating this: Princess Melita Bonaparte is the most beautiful woman in the world & she should be our Regent Monarch.
