The hidden pain that binds Mathilde of Belgium and Dona Letizia

TWO PARALLEL LIVES


The two princesses living with great discretion, but at the same time intense pain, the fatal blow of fate with the death in tragic circumstances of her two younger sisters, Erika and Alix.

Their lives seem perfect, happily married each with its Philip, and surrounded by their children. But Mathilde of Belgium and Doña Letizia share the enormous pain of having suffered the loss of her sisters small.
Driving grandma 77 years
Mathilde, the wife of Crown Prince since 1999 Philip of Belgium, excited these days recalls the terrible car accident that took him ten years ago now, the lives of his sister aged 22, Alix.
In an interview on Belgian television on young victims of traffic accidents, she was very distressed recalling the day when her sister Alix left home in the car he was driving his 77 year old grandmother, Princess Marie Sophie Sapieha, home Polish. The small utility was hit by a truck and two died on the spot.
The fate of zarpazos
"It has been exactly ten years," she says in the interview, adding that continues pouring a lot less to her sister and who continue to suffer as the first day. "I would like to know both my children," says the princess, who is pregnant with her fourth child and recognizes that is not receptive to the idea of Alix "never play with my small."
Mathilde d'Udekem is called upon to be the first queen of the Belgians with nationality from birth. The above were of Italian, Spanish-Queen Fabiola, Swedish, Bavarian, Austrian and French. In its 35 years is a model of elegance, simplicity and know to be for millions of women. But princesses suffer zarpazos of fate.

Thank you FanLetizia for posting this article in English. It is a sad tie between the two of them. Having lost my younger brother in a car accident as well, I have a great deal of empathy for both ladies.

I don't think it will be twins would it not have been announced? I thought it was announced with Princess Claire.

Just a question. Is it likely we will be aware when she is admitted to hospital like with Crown Princess Mary and Maxima last year. I don't know what happened with her previous children

I just saw 'Blauw Bloed', who showed parts of the 'Levenslijn' programme in which Mathilde and Phillipe participated. Nice to see them on television like that and the way they interacted with each other was nice, Phillipe still seems to be very much in love while looking at his wife.

I must say I was impressed by Mathilde's way with people. The topic was always sensitvive (traffic victims) but she always had the right tone, words etc. and it all seemed to be sinsere too! And she has the sweetest smile I have ever seen too. Nice to see Phillipe around children, he seemed so relaxed (unlike the Economic missions for example). Note that Mathilde also spoke about her sisters and grandmothers death in a traffic accident, both to the interviewer and a group of people she visited (who also lost a loved one).

Mathilde also remarked that her husband is quite handy, which he needs to be as their children are of an age that they are starting to ask their father to repair things.

Thanks for those family pictures they are lovely! Where were they taken?

In one picture it looked to me like Tessy de Nasseu was pregnant again but I think it's just the way she is standing
