I think that when you've come to a forum like TRF, where members have been following royals for years, information like the nationality of princes and princesses, especially ones as popular as the current Crown Princesses, is pretty common knowledge for everyone. Most members in this forum can also tell you a little bit about Mathilde's noble background or what Mary of Denmark's father does for a living or what Letizia of Spain's parents do for a living. Such information is readily available and one doesn't necessarily need to be a scholar to know such things.

I'm sorry, but I am confused now. How else would people know stuff (about any subject not just royals) if they didn't read?

As already mentioned, it's a bit presumptuous to come around to a forum devoted to royals and to tell people things that are common knowledge. That would be like going to a fashion forum and saying that Chanel's first name was CoCo.

There is no confusing at all then it comes to me. Some people did not know the difference from an heir-apparent to an heir-presumptive, And that not the only thing and there is other things you have to read. We are talking about other stuff we are about royals. This website is called The Royal forums.

I agree with you, there is no need to bring up the obvious. But if you read the biography of Chanel by Edmonde Charles-Roux (highly recommendable reading, especially when it comes to the treatment of Chanel by her lover, the British duke! Talk about condescending - and she such an artist!)), you'd have read that while Chanel called herself Coco, her name actually was Gabrielle.

Next Star, I think a nice way to learn about the royals on this forum is to go to the Sitemap, choose the Royal Family you are interested in and begin reading from the earliest threads on them through to the most current. Although I had studied the British Royal Family for several years when I joined TRF, I really did not know much about many of the European Royal Families and I learned alot by reading the threads. I think you will be amazed at the wealth of knowledge members of the forum have, and are generous enough to share.

....and now to the topic....do we get to see this lovely family on September 1st when Elisabeth and Gabriel will start school? Any ideas?

Well, I definitely hope so! Is it Gabriel's first year at school? If so, there might as well be some press coverage, don't you think?

...well perhaps Catherine or Hannelore can help me here but I think Elisabeth started school two years ago so it seems that Gabriel should be starting this year since he and E are two years apart. I hope there is some coverage -- I always miss seeing this family when they are on holidays.

Do you think Gabriel will also have a red backpack? I hope there's press coverage, he's too cute to pass up!

Let's move on from the obvious facts of Princess Mathilde's nationality everyone...
The facts of the Belgian Royals as do any other royals can be read on this forum or elsewhere easily by using "search". There is no need to repeat a factual information again & again.

Thank you.

Prince Philippe is back in business and attends the opening ceremony and the competitions at the IAAF Golden League athletics meeting “Memorial Van Damme” in Brussels tonight. He took the chance to congratulate his compatriot Tia Hellebaut, who won the high jump gold medal at the 2006 European Championship earlier this month. Furthermore he honours the Belgian European Champion Kim Gevaert who won the women’s 200 meters tonight. (BELGA, anp)

You are right alexandresylvie - looks like a minor thumb injury.

Yep. That is a new trend as well:
- Norway: a Norwegian bride
- Belgium: a Belgian bride
- Spain: a Spanish bride



Princess Mathilde is not only a perfect Princess, she is also a scion of an old noble family.
The family was bestowed the baronial rank in 1815 by King Willem I of the Netherlands after reconnaissance which is a recognition of older (pre-1795) nobility. Only the firstborn sons were a Baron, the other sons and daughters were Jonkheer (Écuyer) or Jonkvrouwe (Demoiselle). In 1999 it had pleased His Majesty to elevate the Baron d'Udekem d'Acoz (uncle of Mathilde) as well as Jonkheer d'Udekem d'Acoz (Mathilde's father) to the comital rank.

Camilla of Cornwall and Mathilde of Brabant are the only blueblooded spouses of today's Heirs.

It's Jonkvrouw in Belgium (without -e). the french term demoiselle is not an equivalent, there is none in French.

Philippe & Mathilde were present at a private dinner in Holland for Masako & Naruhito of Japan. The other guests were queen Beatrix, Máxima & Willem-Alexander and Henri & María Teresa of Luxemburg.

I totally agreed with iloveroyal about Princess Mathide.Well put it's exactly how I felt about her.There's an aura in her face that exudes serenity,calm and compassion.I love the fact that she made Prince Philippe such a happy man.
