In the video from "de standaard" Prince Filip says once again that he is very proud and that it was always there dream to have two boys and two girls. He says that the other children are waiting for them. He thanks the people for all the wishes for Eléonore. He thanks princess Mathilde for the late but beautiful birthdaypresent.
Mathilde thanks Prince Filip for supporting her with the children and that he is a good father.
One of the journalists asks what Princess Elisabeth thinks of her sister and Mathilde says that she is very proud, she acts like al real mother. She wants to take care of het sister all the time and Princess Mathilde has to stop her sometimes so she can take care of her youngest daughter herself. You could really see that in the pictures.

Princess Elisabeth, Prince Gabriël, Prince Emmanuel and Princess Eléonore are such adorable children

I was a little disappointed with Mathilde's Dutch.
I don't mind the accent, but there are a lot of mistakes in her sentences. Philippe also sometimes literally translates sentences from French to Dutch and then it sounds so ridiculous.
I would think as future king and queen they would take regular lessons, but both her knowledge and Philippe's seem to remain the same.

I'm happy they send their children to a dutch school. And as they speak french at home, the children will be perfect bilingual.

Oh Gosh! deredactie.be - Paleis geeft eerste beelden Eléonore vrij
Wait until you get to 1:10 or so, and there is just a sweet moment when Philippe is holding the baby, and Mathilde reaches up and takes his hand. It was just so sweet and you can tell they are so happy and in love with their four beautiful children :)

Also, can anyone translate what Philippe and the people and hospital staff are saying here: deredactie.be - "Dames en heren, voor u staat een trotse vader"
Prince Filippe is saying:
Ladies and Gentleman, as you can see there is a proud father standing in front of you, It's a girl: Eléonore. My wife and I are very proud

Then the reporter is saying that the name Eléonore is an Arabian name and it means: God is my light

Then they are saying that people can leave a message for them, and then you see this guy with flowers: he says that they are for Mathilde
Then a women is saying that she also came to the hospital for another baby of Prince Filippe and Princess Mathilde

The doctor of the hospital is saying: that it started slowly, but that now the people are showing up more, now that they now there is a new princess

I like it that they also named her after Fabiola, because she said this weekend that she lost 5 children with King Boudewijn:

Here is the article:

I forgot to translate it ;

It says that this is the first time that Fabiola has spoken about it.
She says that she has learned a lot from it. And that is hasn't made her a bitter person, but that she has appreciated life more.
She and her husband have put a lot of time in getting Prince Filippe ready for the throne, that is why she is so close with Filippe and Mathilde.
Sometimes the news of a pregnancy did leak and then people would send flowers and gifts, but unfortunately she lost each baby

Thanks so much for translating.

What a nightmare....FIVE miscarriages??! I read in one book that in 1966 Queen Fabiola crawled on her knees to the shrine of St Francis of Assisi in Italy to pray for a living baby. She miscarried a month or so later.

I am happy that Philippe and Mathilde honored her with this little girl.
