Belgian Royal Family Very Sorry For Confusing Dead and Living Queens

Correspondence is hard and fraught with potential mix-ups. Sometimes you thank the wrong great-aunt for those lovely crystal candlesticks. And sometimes you thank people for the expression of their sympathies on the death of the wrong queen. I'm a cotillion drop-out but I believe that's what they call a faux pas. » 2/05/15 2:00pm 2/05/15 2:00pm
