I had written in April to King Albert (83 yrs, abdicated 2013) to wish him a speedy recovery. King Albert was hospitalized twice in April as the doctors dealt with his Aortic Stenosis (narrowing of the heart valve). King Albert had two surgeries:
- April 16th - Coronary Angioplasty, where they insert a stent to open clogged heart arteries
- April 30th - Replaced aortic valve (heart valve)
The front of the Envelope says it is from Belvédère Castle, King Albert & Queen Paola's official residence.
The reply is a flat card with typed message.
The message is in French, one of Belgium's official language. Translated the message reads:
His Majesty King Albert II was very touched by your attention and thank you wholeheartedly for your wishes for a speedy recovery.
