The teens were tragically killed following a smash at the Condroz-Huy Rally near Wanze, Belgium, on Sunday (November 6).

Speaking of their devastation, the parents of both the 18-year-old and 16-year-old have said that the pair were "made for each other".

Friends and relatives are able to pay their final respects, while their bodies currently lie in wake at the home of Margaux's family, and will then be buried side by side.

Cedric Remacle has said the duo will be buried at a cemetery in Geer on Saturday (November 12) – the same cemetery that houses the grandfather of Margaux.

Speaking to local media, Remacle said: "My father, Margaux's grandfather, rests there and will watch over them. I'm very sure of that."

Fabrice Landeloos, the father of Romain, added: "Our children will never be separated. They lived together and they will remain together even in death."

The pair, who met online nearly two years ago, were said to have attended numerous car rallies together, while their parents denied rumours that they had entered a restricted zone of the race.

Cedric told local media: "Our children are not to blame. We have been to the scene of the accident. They walked up a small path, which was not a restricted area. It's fate's fault, that's what the police have told us."

They told local media: "The rally is their job. It was an accident."

Two others had been hospitalised in the horrific accident on Sunday, with no update on the conditions of those involved in the crash that killed the Romeo and Juliet couple.
