Congratulations to the charming family. I'm sure the new addition will be as cute as his siblings.
It's not english. It's both French and Flemish.

I just have to say thank you for posting the video link. It is very nice to actually see and hear the royal family. I think that Phillipe has foundthe love of his life with Mathilde. He seems so much younger and more hip and "with it" than before his marriage. I think that Mathilde has brought out the true Phillipe that had gone missing before his marriage. I also loved the way he seemed so emotional today. That is the sign of a truly deeply felt and loving man. Mathilde and Phillipe are lucky to have found one another. God Bless the whole family. BTW, doesn't Elisabeth favor her father in her looks? WOW!!!

Congratulations to the whole family! I really like the name. :) I can't wait to see a picture of Prince Emmanuel. I'm sure he's just as adorable as his siblings, Elisabeth and Gabriel.

Congratulations to Phillippe and Mathilde! The pictures of Elisabeth and Gabriel are just adorable. I can't wait to see some pictures of the new baby prince. While I'm not crazy about the name Emmaunel, it's not bad either.

All three kids have beautiful names. I didn't expect Emmanuel, though. I expected something more along the lines of Samuel or Nicholas.

The pictures of Elisabeth and Gabriel going to the hospital are so adorable! It seems like just yesterday Elisabeth was vising baby Gabriel. I wonder if she remembers that trip.

I was hoping for another boy. Elisabeth is still daddy's girl

AW! Congratulations for the Royal Family!! :) Well done, Mathilde!

It would be neat if Emmanuel has brown hair...Elisabeth and Gabriel have such gorgeous white blonde hair, but it would be cool if Emmanuel had nice brown hair like Mathilde. :)

There's no other place for me to express my heartiest congratulations to Belgian Royal Family than this beautiful board. Many of us are very happy with the birth of Prince Emmanuel, the mother Crown Princess Mathilde and father Crown Prince Phillippe are even happier. What not Princess Elisabeth and Prince Gabriel. All the very best for the new born baby.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CROWN PRINCE AND PRINCESS!!

Elisabeth and Gabriel are too cute in those pictures. Whoever posted the link to the news show, thank you, thank you!!

3 more royal births to go this year!!!!

How funny to think all the Crown Princesses were pregnant at the same time...Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, and Norway...

There are going to be an awful lot of royal offspring in the same age group in the next generation.

Now that will be interesting come the time they reach marrying age...maybe we will see more royals marrying royals? :)

Found more on the birth. There's a text and 4 videos. I don't know if all videos work. The last one didn't work for me.:( Hope you have better luck:

Genevieve, if I remember correctly (if I don't someone please correct me) Mathilde's father is or will be 69 this year, and her mother is or will be 59.

Aha! I was right; it was a boy! Congratulations to the family and to the Belgians! I think this is the beginning of the European baby boom!

You're welcome LaMinka, and lucky you that the last video works for you.:) Guess it's just my computer that sucks.:(

Genevieve, I looked in the thread about Mathilde's family, and her father is born in 1936, and her mom in 1946. Nice to know for myself that my memory is not gone completely.
