Prinses Mathilde bevallen van dochtertje

Prinses Mathilde is bevallen van een dochtertje Eléonore. Het vierde kindje van Prins Filip (48) en prinses Mathilde (35) werd om 4u50 in het Erasmusziekenhuis te Anderlecht geboren. Het kindje weegt 3,210 kg en is 50 cm groot.
De prinses en haar dochter stellen het goed. Het kleine prinsesje zal de voornamen Eléonore, Fabiola, Victoria, Anne, Marie dragen.

Prinses Elisabeth (6), Prins Gabriël (4), en Prins Emmanuel (2) krijgen er dus een zusje bij. Meters van Eléonore worden kroonprinses Victoria van Zweden en prinses Claire van België. Peter wordt graaf Sébastien von Westphalen zu Fürstenberg.

De naam Eléonore komt in verschillende culturen voor. In het Arabisch betekent hij 'God is mijn licht'.

Premier Yves Leterme heeft het paar intussen gefeliciteerd met hun vierde kindje. 'In naam van de regering en van mezelf wens ik Eléonore een gelukkig leven', luidde het in een mededeling.

Congrats to the family! I wish the royal families named their children after other monarchs and royalty whose birthday it is still. I was hoping for a Princess Marguerite :)

Oh, by the way! Is Count Sebastian the uncle of Alexandre Furstenburg? The one who is/was married to Marie Chantal's sister?

(My Dutch isn't really all that, but here is a basic translation/summary - with a conversion of weight/length as well)
Princess Mathilde has given birth to a daughter, Eléonore. Their fourth child was born at 4.50 in Anderlecht. She weighed 3.210 kg (7.07 lbs) and she is 50 cm (19.6 inches) long.

Everything is well with mother and child. The little princess has been given the names Eléonore, Fabiola, Victoria, Anne, Marie.

Godmothers of Eléonore will be Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Princess Claire of Belgium. Godfather will be graaf Sébastien von Westphalen zu Fürstenberg.

Congratulations to Prince Filip, Princess Mathilde and the brothers and sister Princess Elisabeth, Prince Gabriël and Prince Emmanuel!

Eléonore, I love that name so much and this time I guessed it right (the name and that it would be a girl :-))

What wonderful news to start my morning off.

Lovely names I was just wondering about the pronounciation of Eléonore especially with the accent on the "e". (Possibly e-lay-uh-nor??)

Thanks

You are right, LadyS.

And it's such a delicate attention from Philippe and Mathilde top include Fabiola in her names...

Thanks for the help - I am never quite sure about name pronunciation. Is is pronounced differently in Dutch?

I just realised that she was born on Queen Margrethe's birthday - what good timing.

No. prince Alexander is from a side-line of the Princely Family of Fürstenberg.
Count Sebastian is from another comital Family.
