On 17 February 1935, a mass was celebrated in commemoration of the death of King Albert I, who died in an accident at Marche-les-Dames in 1934.
After the death of Queen Astrid, on 29 August 1935, it was decided to commemorate all deceased members of the Royal Family on 17 February. The mass celebrated each year on that date in the Church of Laken is a family ceremony.
