Inquiry on the former partners of Philippe

Now a new book about the prince has been published, we know for certain that Barbara Maselis was the first love of Philippe.
Philippe was in his early twenties then, he was 35/36 when he met Mathilde. It seems quit impossible that in all those years there was nobody else.
There was a gossip about a girl 'de Lalaing'.
Does anyone know something about this?

Well, I don´t know it very well anymore, but a year or so before the engagement to Mathilde, weren´t there rumours in the press about a countess de lalaing? I believe the lady encouraged the rumours too. There were more stories in those years, also about him and a woman from the Netherlands. But I have forgotten names etc. and it seems to be difficult to trace them back now. Maybe somebody else knows....

I remember to read, some years ago, that Prince Philippe was dating a rich Brazilian girl called Adriana. It was said she was very catholic and Queen Fabiola approved the relationship. That was the only girlfriend of Philippe I read about. I think he wasn't the kind of young man who has a lot of girlfriends. He is religious and probably he wanted to wait for the right woman to have a serious relationship.

I don't think anyone here can tell about how pure Prince Philippe was when he got married But what everyone knows is that Prince Philippe is a very devout Catholic and I think he didnt date anyone just for fun. He seems a very responsible man even in his relationships.

As far as I remember the girl was Adriana Torres de Silva and she was from Seville, Spain. Queen Fabiola was more than pleased with this, as the girl was catholic and Spanish, just like Fabiola was/is. The author of the text I read even stated, that Fabiola was the one who introduced Philip and Adriana, hoping in a mariage, but the couple did not cope with her wishes. I don't remember where I read this, but it was just after Baudouin died and Albert and Paola became King and Queen of the Belgians.

Thanks Olka That's her name! I thought she was brazilian because the magazine said so and I memorized because "Silva" is a common surname in Brazil (and Portugal). But you'e very right, she is from Seville. This article (from El Mundo) says Philippe dated the spanish Adriana and Infanta Elena of Spain (I didnt know about this last one).

Actually he dated Infanta Cristina not Elena. Stephanie de Lalalin or what her last name is, was a girl from upper class in Belgium, she is half Swedish. I can´t get a picture of her because I don´t have a scanner.

In Belgium there is now a book with the title "Prince Philippe". The books says that Mathilde was not Philippe's first love.

When Philippe went to the abbeyschool of Zevenkerken, he became in love withe Barbara Maselis. The daughter of a manufacturar of cattlefood. It was love at first sight between the prince and Barbare. Barbara was 2 years younger, but according to the book more mature and wordly. When philippe left the school the relation beceme more serieus. Barbara was a beautiful girl, spoke 4 languages. They were a couple for 3 years. Filip regulary visited her in Roeselare or Leuven, where she shared a appartment with her sister. Barbara visited Philippe a couple of times in Belvédère, but the reception was not very warm. To comon, and that was something where the royal family was not ready for those days.

Ultimately it was his father who obliged Philippe to end his relation "Jou are a prince, you have an official future. I can see that Barabara is important for you, but you will have to try to make an end at the relation."
Later, Philippe would loose Barbara to one of his best friends. But in his head he keeps her faithful. Until he meets Mathilde.

In the german magazines there where some rumours about Countess Anna Plater-Syberg in the 90's and also about another woman Sigrid van Erps who was from Switzerland if i remember correct.

I had never heard of Adriana Torres de Silva

I do remember Sigrid van Erps, that was in 1997 or somenthing. She was a Flemish woman, freelance journalist. She herself told the press she had a relationship, but court never reacted. It was very strange, 'cause we know now that the prince had a relationship with mathilde at the time.

The infantes are a rumour, they were single, same generation, wishfull thinking of some romantic journalists.

Well, I haven´t heard aboutn those ladies, but I still have a magazine from the early 90-ties where the gossip was that he was reserved for Princess Margarita of Bourbon-Parma, so he got a lucky escape there... A totally bogus story btw. He seems to be friends to Duchess Helene in Bavaria, were there ever any rumours about the two of them being a couple?

I think the name of the de Lalaing countess was Stephanie btw. I am not too sure if it was her but I remember that either she or another lady were not very discrete too the press and later it was discovered that the girl didn´t have a relationship with Phillipe at all and never had one. This story was in the late 90-ties I believe, 1997 or 1998 even. But Phillipe has always been very discrete, the engagement to Mathilde came as a total surprise (though it leaked out a day or two in advance).

Exclamation

I've heard rumors about Infanta Cristina and Philippe as well, they were seen together skiing in Baqueira Beret and in some acts around, I think they were friendly but don't know how close they were

EL MUNDO

(Hola, look at her outfit, that screams 80's all the way )

It was said that Philippe pursued Cristina in their youth but that she said no (I read it somewhere, don't remember exactly where)
