If what she really wants is recognition, she'll drop the suit.

I think that would be a good gesture from Philippe, he's not forced to acknowledge her as his sister, his father is the one with the obligation.

The thing is that it will make Albert (and probably Baudouin as well since I really doubt he was happy about his brother having a extramarital daughter) look bad, as if they (the King and his siblings) weren't able to recognize their sister before because of orders from above.

I cannot see any reason for Philippe to recognize her, and really doubt that he would without his fathers consent. It is up to Albert to act first. After that I think Philippe, Astrid and Laurent can act as they wish toward her. They can interact with her as they wish or they can totally ignore her existence. Alberts children have no obligations at all towards Ms Boel,

I agree about the last part - it's not Philippes obligation to recognize his sister. But he might want to do it anyway. Credit to him for that.

It is a cheap move. What new things can be divulged? King Albert retired. What is Sybille de Selys Longchamps planning to achieve?

Or the other way around: It could be considered respectful that Sybille didn't go public with the details of their story until Albert had abdicated.

All right ... she will respectfully whine about then Prince Albert of Liege's promises, their true love and etc. What do we have in the end? King Albert is with his wife now and wants nothing to do with his alleged biological daughter. Perhaps Mrs. de Selys Longchamps can explain how this happened.

Delphine might have valid reasons for her claim, but her mother doesn't, this is just a cry for publicity tbh.

There is one person in this drama that is behaving deplorable, namely King Albert. He had a long-term relationship and they had a child together. Whether you are King or not, basic decency requires you to acknowledge the child and make sure it is taken care of. If you have any wealth that child should be treated the same as any other children. Had King Albert done his part in this mess there would perhaps never been a reason for the mother and daughter to go public.

We have no knowledge of what King Albert has or hasn't done specifically for Delphiine. He might have made some arrangements and we are not privy to them. He might not have, although I would find that hard to believe. We know only what the mother and daughter have told us. There might be another side to the story, but King Albert has chosen not to speak publicly. He has the right.

Exactly. We really don't know the details of these relationships. IF the descriptions and second hand speculation regarding Albert's behaviour are accurate he's behaved in a despicable way. But he shouldn't be hung out to dry based on one side of a story that the media has picked over and embellished for years now.

Whatever promises might have been made, or Albert pulled back on, what's done is done. I think Albert is being smart in not wading in and escalating the sling fest. She keeps claiming first to be his daughter (entirely possible), yet it is possible that Albert did make some provisions for his daughter financially and the only reason we don't know is because he's not mentioning it and neither is Delphine.

If Albert did make provision and she squandered it, certainly I would have to say that Delphine is foolish and probably either trying for more money or she's angling for a title and to be part of the family. I wonder how long this can go on until Delphine gives up or Albert does take some sort of action. I'm beginning to wonder what on earth she thinks she's gaining from all of this.

If this is somewhere near true, than they don't want contact or acknowledgement: they want revenge.

if this is what they are going to be telling; for "acknowledgement" there is no need to drag the Philippe+"signs of autism" into it.... pure, nasty revenge for two women scorned.

But i will hold my final verdict for when the thing airs...

if they drag Philippe's "autism" then this is disgraceful stuff, one thing is to go against Albert and another to drag Delphine's siblings into this :banghead:

The informations are rumors from twitter etc..
Our new King is respected and untouchable and I don't know if the Royal Palace will allow the low key attitude of Baroness Sybille.

The report gives transmission dates for the programme so something is planned.
I do not see how the Royal Palace can stop it.
