Elisabeth of Belgium, a Queen like no other
 
07/01/2021

In the series Secrets d’Histoire, France 3 has broadcast a brand new documentary about Queen Elisabeth (1876-1965), the founder of our Competition. Exceptionally, King Albert agreed to share some personal memories of his grandmother.


Following the Queen in this program is an opportunity to discover the most beautiful palaces in Belgium, but also to enter in a very privileged way the Castle of Laeken, the residence of the Belgian royal family, which King Philippe made available for the interview. King Albert explains, among other things, how Queen Elisabeth tried to train her grandchildren into musicians.

Above all, the documentary lets you discover a unique Queen. She was a humanistic nonconformist. She was an ecological sovereign avant la lettre, who placed nature and art, so necessary for our soul, above everything else. A very modern lesson ...

You can now watch this moving documentary on Youtube!

Piano 2020 postponed to May 2021
