Prinzessin Mathilde bringt Prinz Gabriel zur Welt [20.08.2003 09:42]

In der vergangenen Nacht ist das zweite Kind von Prinz Philippe und Prinzessin Mathilde zur Welt gekommen. Es handelt sich um einen Sohn mit dem Namen Gabriel. Die Geburt verlief offenbar ohne Komplikationen. Prinz Gabriel, Baudouin, Charles, Marie wurde um 1 Uhr 14 im Brüsseler Erasmus-Krankenhaus geboren. Eigentlich war die Geburt erst für Anfang September erwartet worden. Gabriel ist 52 Zentimeter lang, wiegt 4 Kilo, hat blaue Augen und blonde Haare. Er kam nicht durch einen Kaiserschnitt zur Welt wie es bei seiner Schwester Elisabeth der Fall gewesen war. Elisabeth wird am 25. Oktober 2 Jahre alt. Prinz Gabriel ist der Dritte in der Thronfolge hinter seinem Vater und seiner Schwester. Er ist das 7. Enkelkind von König Albert und Königin Paola. Das Königspaar weilt zur Zeit zu einer Urlaubsreise im Ausland, wird diese jedoch unterbrechen und nach Brüssel zurückkehren. Der Name Gabriel kommt zum ersten Mal im belgischen Königshaus vor. Paten des Prinzen werden eine italienische Großnichte von Prinz Philippe und der Bruder von Prinzessin Mathilde.

Die ersten Fotos von Gabriel werden wahrscheinlich am kommenden Samstag veröffentlicht werden.

20 August 2003

BRUSSELS – Belgium's Princess Mathilde gave birth to her second child Wednesday morning, Prince Gabriel Boudewijn Karel Maria.

Prince Gabriel is now third in line of succession to the throne after his father Prince Philip and sister Elisabeth, born in October 2001.

The newest addition to Belgium’s Royal Family was born at the Erasmus hospital in Anderlecht, Brussels, at 1.14am in the morning, a few weeks early.

Start or join a discussionThe blonde, blue-eyed boy weighed in at 4 kilos and 52 centimetres in length.

The seventh grandchild of King Albert II and Queen Paola will be visited by his grandparents upon their earlier than planned return from vacation in the South of France.

Gabriel’s godmother was announced as being the Baroness Hans-Ulrich von Freyberg, second cousin to Prince Philip, while his godfather will be Princess Mathilde’s brother, Count Charles-Henri d’Udekem d’Acoz.

The name Gabriel has never been used in the Royal family.The baby’s second name, Boudewijn, refers to the late and much-loved King Boudewijn.

Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt congratulated the royal couple in the name of all Belgians upon the news of the birth of their son.

I was just wondering (looking at the picutre of Phillippe) if the media was allowed inside the hospital?
I wasn't sure if that was against policy or not especially when such a high profile person is a patient.

From the Benelux Royals message board (plus a picture of Elisabeth meeting her new baby brother - but still Daddy's little girl! :P ):

There was a small interview with prince Philippe.

He said he was really tired, because it had been a long and very emotional night. (he also looked very emotional, just like at Elisa's birth.)
Mathilde and he knew beforehand it would be a boy this time, and he said it was 'a king's wish' coming true (koningswens).

He also said that Gabriel very strongly ressembles his sister, that he's a very strong little boy, with quite big hands and feet, so that shows he'll be a strong boy later on, and that also fits with the name they've chosen for him. Philippe added that, apart from its significance, they also chose the name 'Gabriel' because it's a figure that appears in 3 beliefs: the jewish, the christian, and the islamic, and that it's therefor a unifying name.

And one more of little Elisabeth.

20 AUGUST 2003
Princess Mathilde of Belgium and her husband Crown Prince Philippe welcomed a new addition to the family on Wednesday, bringing their first child, 22-month-old Princess Elisabeth, a little brother.

Gabriel Baudouin Charles Marie came into the world at 1:14am, weighing 8lbs 13oz (four kilos) and measuring 21 inches (53 centimetres), announced the royal palace. "The princess and her son are fine," added the statement.

Gabriel is the seventh grandchild of King Albert II and Queen Paola, who interrupted their vacations in the south of France to jet to Brussels in order to properly greet the new member of the family. The infant will occupy the third place in the line of succession, behind his elder sibling Elisabeth.

Little Gabriel's delivery came a bit early, as his birth wasn't expected until September. When his sister was born in 2001, she arrived two weeks before her due date as well.

Zweites Baby für Belgiens Thronfolger: «Er hat enorm große Hände»

Brüssel (dpa) - Die belgische Prinzessin Mathilde (30), Ehefrau von Thronfolger Prinz Philippe (43), hat an diesem Mittwoch einen gesunden Jungen zur Welt gebracht. Das vier Kilo schwere Baby hat nach Angaben des Palastes blaue Augen und blondes Haar, doch der stolze Vater hob andere Eigenschaften seines ersten Sohnes hervor: «Gabriel hat enorm große Hände und große Füße», sagte Prinz Philippe nach der Geburt. «Er dürfte also ein kräftiger Junge werden.»

Den Namen Gabriel, der im belgischen Königshaus bisher nicht gebräuchlich ist, wählten Mathilde und Philippe nach Darstellung des Prinzen, weil sie ihn besonders schön finden. «Aber auch, weil er in drei religiösen Traditionen wurzelt - im Judentum, im Christentum und im Islam», sagte der Thronfolger im multikulturellen Belgien.

Das Neugeborene ist nach seinem Vater Philippe und seiner Schwester Elisabeth, die im Oktober ihren zweiten Geburtstag feiert, die Nummer Drei in der Thronfolge. Damit schwinden die Chancen der anderen Kinder von König Albert II., Prinzessin Astrid und Prinz Laurent, einmal den belgischen Thron zu besteigen. König Albert II. und Königin Paola brachen ihren Urlaub in Südfrankreich ab, um ihr siebtes Enkelkind in Augenschein zu nehmen.

In den Nachrichtensendungen von Rundfunk und Fernsehen in Belgien war die Geburt des kleinen Prinzen am Mittwoch das Hauptthema. Viele Bürger hängten Belgiens schwarz-gelb-rote Fahne aus dem Fenster und Premierminister Guy Verhofstadt sandte den Eltern im Namen der gesamten Bevölkerung seine Glückwünsche. Er hoffe, das neue Mitglied der königlichen Familie werde immer mit dem außergewöhnlich schönen und langen Sommer seines Geburtsjahres in Verbindung gebracht, fügte der Regierungschef hinzu.
