well i haven't seen the video yet , but seen it goes to VTM it will be in dutch cause VTM is the comercial flemish tv channel.
by the way , 60% of the belgians speak dutch so dutch is probably the most important language in Belgium

From Hello

Belgium's Future Queen Visits Her New Baby Brother

21 AUGUST 2003
As congratulations pour in following the birth of Crown Prince Phillipe and Crown Princess Mathilde of Belgium's newborn son, there was also a warm welcome from someone who will hold a special place in the infant royal's life – his big sister, Princess Elisabeth.

On Thursday, the two-year-old future queen –accompanied by her father and maternal grandmother, Countess Anne Komorowski – visited the Brussels hospital where her baby brother Prince Gabriel came into the world the day before.

The little girl, dressed in a white dress with matching t-strap shoes, held her grandmother's hand as she toddled up the ramp leading to the hospital doors to meet her new sibling.

While royal watchers await their own introduction to the new arrival with a public presentation, the palace has announced who will serve as the prince's godparents. Prince Gabriel's godmother will be Baroness Hans-Ulrich von Freyberg, Prince Philippe's second cousin, while Princess Mathilde’s brother, Count Charles-Henri d’Udekem d’Acoz, will serve as godfather.

Love the little barrette in Elisabeth's hair!

Well, Elisabeth may no longer be the only twinkle in her parents' eyes, but at least she is still Daddy's little girl!

It was a pleasure, Alexandria, to do the search on Maria Christina Rossi di Montelera. I saw somewhere that she's actually the grand daughter of Queen Paola's eldest sister. Hmmmm....that does, however, still make her Prince Philippe's second cousin. But, I don't know, though, considering how she's related to the The Royal Family of Belgium, what did make them decide to choose her to be their son's godmother.

Belgium welcomes new prince
21 August 2003

BRUSSELS - "Live your life to the fullest, live your dreams to the fullest, and protect the values of tolerance, solidarity and democracy," said a governmental telegram destined for Gabriel, the day-old new Belgian Prince.

Belgium's Princess Mathilde gave birth to her second child Wednesday morning, Prince Gabriel Boudewijn Karel Maria, weighing in at 4 kilos and measuring 52 centimetres.

A tired but proud father, Prince Philippe, posed for photographers at the Erasmus hospital in Aderlecht, Brussels. "It was very emotional - we're overjoyed," the Prince said.

Flowers, notes of congratulations and presents have already been flooding in to the hospital to celebrate the birth of Belgium's newest addition to the Royal family.

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

Belgien freut sich über Prinz Gabriel

Brüssel. Prinzessin Mathilde (30), Ehefrau des belgischen Thronfolgers Prinz Philippe (43), hat am Mittwoch einen gesunden Jungen zur Welt gebracht. Er soll auf den Namen Gabriel getauft werden.


Die Geburt verlief offenbar ohne Komplikationen. Prinz Gabriel, Baudouin, Charles, Marie - so alle seine Vornamen - wurde um 1 Uhr 14 im Brüsseler Universitätskrankenhaus Erasmus geboren.

Eigentlich war die Geburt erst für Anfang September erwartet worden. Gabriel ist 52 Zentimeter lang, wiegt vier 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 zwei Jahre alt. Prinz Gabriel ist der Dritte in der Thronfolge hinter seinem Vater und seiner Schwester. Damit schwinden die Chancen der anderen Kinder von König Albert II., Prinzessin Astrid und Prinz Laurent, einmal den belgischen Thron zu besteigen.

Prinz Gabriel 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. Die Geburt von Prinz Gabriel könnte die Debatte um eine Abdankung von König Albert II. zu Gunsten von Prinz Philippe neu anfachen.

Der 69 Jahre alte Monarch feierte jüngst sein zehnjähriges Jubiläum auf dem Thron, den er 1993 nach dem Tod seines Bruders Baudouin bestiegen hatte.

Kritische Stimmen befürchten indes, Philippe könnte bei der Verabschiedung umstrittener Gesetze wie dem zur Sterbehilfe oder zur Homosexuellen-Ehe mehr Schwierigkeiten machen als sein Vater. Der König muss in Belgien jedes neue Gesetz unterschreiben.

Am Mittwoch überwog jedoch die Freude über die Geburt des kleinen Prinzen: 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 langen Sommer seines Geburtsjahres in Verbindung gebracht, fügte der Regierungschef hinzu.
