The king and queen have changed their marriage contract. They got married with a prenuptial agreement in 1959. But this has now been cancelled. The newspaper suuggests that the change may have been done to protect Paola from family disagreements after his death.

They changed the contract on july 16th 2014, but it has only been published now.

Query why matters like this need to be in the public domain. These are private matters between a couple, and IMO, should remain so.

It was published in the 'staatsblad' (state magazine) so it must have been done by the court itself. Perhaps they are legally forced to publish such things as I am sure they woudl have preferred to keep it quiet. TBH I do not find it an odd thing to do, that it took so long was actually quite a risk.

Q.Paola attended the funeral of Michele Ferrero (of the chocolate) on Feb. 19th.

She already attended the funeral of Pietro Ferrero in 2011.

I don't think Philippe would have allowed his mother to be like thrown in the street after Albert's death , even less Astrid.

This reeks of trying to keep as much as possible away from Delphine's demands, that way Paola and their legitimate children will get the brunt of his inheritance and Ms Boel will only get crumbs, since the properties are meant to be common so she wouldn't have the right to Paola's part.

A clip from RTL, here

Duke Piere d'Arenberg also attended the premiere.

At 3 March the king and queen attended an exposition in Oostende, of the work of the late Jan Hoet, a friend of Queen Paola.

There were some youngsters talking about 'rapping', and the queen asked if it was some kind of dance.

Clip: here.

I believe King Albert and Queen Paola already did not attend in 2014. It seems part of their retreat from public life.
