    Full item title reads: "The Funeral of Queen Astrid of Belgium".

    Brussels, Belgium.

    Grand funeral procession of Queen Astrid of Belgium (formerly Princess Astrid of Sweden) who was recently killed in car crash. Various shots of large horse drawn hearse leaving Royal Palace and travelling slowly through crowd lined city streets. The hearse is bound for cathedral Sainte Gudule where Cardinal Archbishop of Malaren (?) will take service.

    Astrid's husband, King Leopold of Belgium, walks behind the hearse with her father Prince Charles of Sweden. Behind them walk dignitaries and representatives from various countries (including Prince Albert, the Duke of York - although we do not actually see him). In front of the hearse walk soldiers and veterans from Belgian Army.

    Various shots of pall bearers carrying coffin up steps of cathedral.
