King's 'lovechild banned from gala dinner' Sunday, 26 June 2005




The out-of-wedlock daughter of King Albert, 37-year-old Delphine BoŽl was not welcome at a gala dinner of the Belgian employers association VBO on Thursday night.

In reaction, Belgian press were intensely speculating that her absence was due to the fact BoŽl's half-brother Crown Prince Filip was to attend the event with his wife Princess Mathilde.

The presence of BoŽl was reportedly thought to be too provocative, prompting BoŽl's mother to give an angry interview with French-language news service RTBF.


Sybille de Selys-Longchamps was also critical of the fact one of her daughter's artworks had almost been banned from an exhibition to celebrate 175 years of Belgian independence. The event is being held at the Heizel centre in Brussels.

A Charleroi-based business was told that it might not be appropriate to use at its exhibition stand an artwork made by the king's out-of-wedlock daughter.

The company also invited BoŽl to attend the VBO gala dinner at the Heizel. She was to be one of 2,250 guests attending the event.

But the firm was also told BoŽl's presence would be too provocative, due to the attendance of Prince Filip and his wife.

De Selys-Longchamps said her daughter is being discriminated against and claimed it was not the first time either.

She had an affair with King Albert between 1966 and 1984 and BoŽl was born in 1968, some eight years after Prince Filip.

I think the Queen is getting less glamoures since she is older, I don't know how to say. But her outfit like for to day is not really Queen style. I mean I don't really like the style of Queen Beatrix and Queen Elisabeth. But it's not what normal people are wearing.
As for instance I really like the style of Queen Sofia and Queen Silvia. It's not over done, but it's chic.

I love the fact that Queen Paola is wearing what "normal" people wear. I think she looks wonderful in her outfit, very fitting for her outing. IMO she just keeps getting better with age, let's face it, how many women her age look that good? Also, the fact that she isn't dressing up would seem to me to make her that much more approachable to the "normal" people at the event. Also, I know that some days I just don't feel like getting all dressed up, I just want to feel comfortable, maybe this is what she felt comfortable in that day.

Thanks dianafan. I have read that the Queen's Dutch isn't that great, so I was curious if she still made the attempt to try to speak it in Limburg.:)
