I was thinking of her biological father,but of course she should also try to find a way to have a friendly relation with her legal father,he probably suffered a lot from Delphineīs actions and the media reports.

And a quote from the article above clearly states that DB is not asking for money: "For money of the king is not to Delphine, claims her mother Sybille.
Wel om zijn erkenning.
However, for its recognition.
'Ze vraagt geen dotatie.
"She asks no endowment.
Daarvoor verdient ze genoeg als kunstenares.'
She deserves enough as an artist. "

As I said, I have my father in my life so I certainly can't say that I speak for Delphine, but I hardly think that maturity has anything to do with it.

You know who your father is, you see him in the press, he appears to have a loving relationship with his other kids, but doesn't want to have a relationship with you. How does one (even if they have a loving or decent relationship with your mother and/or stepfather) deal with that? It could possibly make one think they were lacking in someway.

Should Delphine involve the press in her attempts to get closer to Albert, I think not. Its obviously hasn't worked to her advantage.

Again, I don't think maturity has anything to do with getting over the fact that her father wants nothing to do with her. Delphine isn't the first and certainly not the last who has been abandoned by a parent (and really that is what Albert has done) I just think some have a better way of dealing with it.

I think this relationship (or lack of one) struck a chord because of the recent death of Essie Mae Washington. She was the illegitimate daughter of African American daughter of a well known segregationist (not to go too off topic and too political). He never publicly acknowledged her during his lifetime, but heck he managed to have some type of relationship with her .

Maybe if Albert did the same, it would bring some type of closure for Delphine.

Seems like both mother and daughter enjoy the attention of the press. They obviously do not believe in keeping private matters private and their lack of discretion isn't doing them any favours.

Sorry, a private matter? She is the child of a king, DNA very easy to prove, otherwise. More important, she is a child of someone and has been rejected. Perhaps, he mother's foolish chioce, perhaps, the the heart of a father who cannot love all. It makes me sad, becuas ehs is open to derision and scorn, but it is not her fault.

Yes a private matter concerning 4 people..her mother, her legal father, her presumed father and herself. If she had really wanted to force the matter she would have gone to a lawyer and forced the issue. Instead she and her mother talk to the newpapers......and that does nothing to advance her case, likely the exact opposite if she is hoping for recognition from the king if he is indeed her biological father. It is pretty clear he does not want a relationship with her and her mother has said she is not after money, so why keep talking to the press? Get over it and get on with your life.

I do think in some regard they are after money. Didn't her mother mention her "memoirs" or whatever to be published after the King and Sybille die?
I am sure that will really endear Delphine to her half-siblings.

Delphine is taking action to obtain recognition from the King by taking him, Philippe and Astrid to court
Illegitimate daughter wants to haul King before the courts

Is there any other legal precedent of an illegitimate royal child suing and getting official recognition?

Maybe she believes old gossips that Prince Laurent is not King Albert's son?

Very odd. Can you actually sue a supposed half sibling to prove a relationship? I wonder if her legal advisors actually expect to be successful. The law professor certainly expects her case to be tossed out of court.
I suppose she expects money from the Kings estate since her legal father disinherited her. Either that or she just likes the attention she gets from her claims. I know she says she to wants a relationship with the King but after all this time she must realize that even if she is his child he obviously does not want a relationship with her and suing is not going to make a relationship any more likely.

Well, if i don't mistake Laurent has been the only one of the three siblings to have some contacts with Delphine and to have been somehow symphatetic towards her; this may explain why he has not been called.
However, I wonder what does she want now. Surely this won't help her relationship with the King and royal family in general; maybe she does it for money?

Isn't Laurent in enough trouble as it is? Nice that she left him out. I believe he is the only one who openly met her btw.

Good luck to Delphine, it is quite sad that she seems to be just a bad memory for her father, one that doesn't fit in his new found catholic life style.

I believe Laurent is left out because they would need a pair of female and male DNA strains each. His DNA would have been redundant. (in this context)

Can she legally make her half siblings take the test? Albert has as much recognized her and the DNA would only make sense if she wants to be his daughter legally speaking, that would only be useful at this point to get some inheritance

It's not as if she's 14 and looking for a father figure or to get a place to live after being orphaned.

Everyone knows she's Albert's daughter, why not leave the issue alone? her life would be much easier if she did, this would only make her look greedy tbh.

Quote:
Her decision may be linked to her legal father Jacques BoŽl having disinherited her.
So she suddenly remembered she had another father with money after that happened

I am sorry, but to be recognised by your father seems a natural thing to me. It is Albert who is misbehaving IMO, not Delphine.

I believe it's too late for them to have close family bonds and the timing is very telling: she pushes the DNA testing when she's disinherited by her legal father, by the man that raised her, which in my opinion is her real father, not Albert whom only got her mother pregnant, the one who was always there for her was Jacques BoŽl and her mother and her have been humilliating him forever.

Had she grown in the streets or without a paternal figure then I would understand but this reeks of "I want my cut of his inheritance since my other daddy kicked me out of his"

Albert was a complete cad about this whole issue and should have recognized her from the beginning (although I don't know whether Baudouin and Fabiola got involved or not, he had to obey his brother anyway), but that doesn't mean her choice to push the test is done by the right reasons.

A downright mess and I think the ones who have always been guilty are Albert and her mother but right now Delphine is not proving herself to be a better person than any of her parents tbh.

If your father is such a loser and jerk who lives in perpetual denial and there is no chance of him acknowledging you, then why the hell should you care for him and give a damn for his "love/recognition/whatever"..
Just let him go get a life..
The woman should have this much common sense.
Or it maybe the other way..as some have suggested.. anyway its almost instinctive for people, irrespective of society/culture/status to suspect monetary interests in all such litigations..
Even if thats the case, I dont think she is going to succeed this purpose either.
So whats the point in her messing up everything simply..

Is it known why Jaques BoŽl suddenly decided to disinherit her?
