Yesterday I attend an Event , the Guest was Princess Esmeralda who spoke about her book concerning Women who got the Peace Nobel Price in Oslo.

The Princess is a really charming Person , a lovely Lady , an excellent Journalist and Orator.
She is King Leopold III's daughter and King Albert I granddaughter

Her husband Mr Salvador Moncada was there too.
I had such an interesting conversation with him. He is a brillant scientist and is Knight Bachelor for is work. . His name now is Sir Salvador.

They are living in London not far from Regent Park on a 200 years old house with a wonderful garden. Their daughter Alexandra is in a boarding School and their son Leopoldo , a teenager goes to a british school and is leaving with his parents.

A great Evening !

Princess Marie Esmeralda is born in 1956 .
During his many travels , King Leopold III saw a wonderful landscape. He asked the name of , the aswer was Esmeralda. The king said if I have a daughter I will give her the surname Esmeralda.

For the 18th Birthday of her sister Princess Marie Christine, her parents hosted a great party at their Castle of Argenteuil. We could see the Great Silver Service of Odiot who belonged to the Count of Flanders. This silver service is sold.
They did not for Marie Esmeralda in 1974, but she had the then frontpage of Point de vue.
Thanks for sharing.

Alexandre and Esmeralda wanted to do in Argenteuil a Leopold III Museum , but it was refused. When they left they put all , even the door hangers.
In our Visitor's Office in Waterloo we have on the first floor , King Leopold III desk office.

Grandeur et Decadence !
The famous Silver service from Odiot , herited from the Count of Flanders was sold. We saw it for the last time for Princess Marie Christine 18th birthday.

Alexandra seems really passionate about the environment and fighting climate change and about science (with her father as her inspiration). When talking about her royal side of the family she highlights her great-grandparents and uncle Boudewijn but not the current generation. The institution itself isn't thst important to her but she does have a clear view on brexit: something forced upon us by the elder generation and the youth will have to suffer for it.

Another interesting bit is where she explains that previously she mainly identified as Hondurian but nowadays the Belgian side is on par with her Latin-American side.
