King Albert II is celebrating his 79th birthday today and Place Royale offered sweet pictures of him as a newborn: https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.n...09494361_n.jpg; https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.n...98006089_n.jpg; https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.n...90996704_n.jpg

Thank you for posting the links to these pictures of baby Albert! I really enjoyed them!

A few more pics of King Albert as a child: a newly born Prince; with his father King Leopold III; with his brother King Baudouin; young Albert. The last one is one of my favourite.

I hope after the abdication, he will be able to acknowledge Delphine, if she is in fact his daughter.

The good thing about the abdication is that pictures of the young gorgeous Princess Paola are dug up again

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Flashback Friday: Dolce Paola

Paola was absolutely beautiful. She also had impeccable style. She was definitely the striking beauty.

With the Delphine Affair we know more about the Childhood of their Children. It was Hell at home said Prince Albert to Sybille.
When I see pictures from Albert and Paola with their young Children , I say to myself that they were wrong smiles ....

While I was looking on google for something else I discovered this lovely picture. No other information so no one knows more about this welcoming? Maybe before their wedding?

Acording to Le Soir, king Albert still employs 13 people, 10 of whom are paid by his annual dotation. In addition he is entitled to use 10 'detached' employees from government services. He is however only using 3 of those: a chauffeur and two officers.
