Queen Paola victim of stroke in ItalyWednesday, 26 September 2018 10:17
Queen Paola, who is of Italian birth, was in her native land to celebrate her birthday on 11 September.
The royal family has not issued any details, but the RTBF revealed she has suffered a stroke, which involves the loss of blood and therefore oxygen to the brain. Strokes can often be fatal, or if not, lead to permanent brain damage including paralysis or cognitive damage.
Queen Paola has previously been reported to have suffered from osteoporosis, or loss of bone matter. In 2017 she was hospitalised as a result of a hip fracture, probably related. She later suffered a fracture of the vertebrae, and a double fracture in her arm. She has also been hospitalised for a previous stroke that occurred in Italy.
