I hope is that way. It would be terribly sad if it was not the case
I don't know what the deal is with her royal jewels, though.
Searching for info, I found that jewels given to her personally are hers to keep but the jewels given to her as Queen of Belgium stay within the Belgian royal family. Not very helpful, though.
Our royal family doesns't go back far (our first king's reign started in 1831) so it's quite logical that the jewels are lacking compared with the royal families from Denmark, the UK, the Netherlands,...
