The older Princess Astrid gets, the more she looks like Queen Paola...or at least in these pictures. Of the 3 children of the King and Queen, Princess Astrid resembles her mother the most

It rained criticism on the interview in the ´Zevende Dag´. Mainly focussing on her strong French accent, the way she talks (seems to be whispering) and the lack of spontaneity and the general awnsers.

The interviewsters spoke about it yesterday in a discussion programme on the VRT and defended the princess. She said that the whole idea of the interview was spontanious, as the interviewster herself asked it to the princess in person at an event. She never expected the princess to agree, but after some doubts, she did. Neither the princess nor the staff got to see the questions beforehand.

The interviewer also noted that the princess seemed to change the moment the camera went on. Before he was relaxed and spontanious, but during the interview it was the opposite. The moment the interview finished, the princess seems to be her usual self again, all smiling and relaxed... this was recorded as the camera didn´t switch of immidiately.

I've been trying to find a video of Princess Astrid speaking flemish for quite sometimes and here it is! Thanks Iceflower

She is indeed speaking with a strong french accent, even when she is speaking in English, and it is okay - I think. Everybody speaks with an accent, whatever his/her accent is, isn't it? I think people should stop criticising her accent and start appreciating what she has done so far .. that's more important ...

Anw, does anybody notice a cute family photo in the background? closely pay attention to the background at minute 2.50

I believe this must be the follow-up of the interview ...

and the article "De camera gaat aan en je ziet haar denken: oei"

Bad interview , Princess learned what she has to say ... like all the princes of Belgium she cannot speak correctly . The only one who is different is our King Albert II
