Holiday 2009 – Monument and chapel for Queen Astrid of Belgium in Küssnacht, Switzerland
Princesses and queens have a high chance of dying in a car accident. Princess Juliana was involved in a car accident with her husband Prince Bernhard, but she survived. Queen Astrid of Belgium was less lucky, she died when her husband drove the car into a tree in 1935. You can see the tree trunk above the cross on the left. The tree survived initially, but was struck by lightning in 1992. Later on Princess Grace of Monaco and Princess Diana were killed in car accidents.
