King Albert II and Queen Paola are vacationing in Northern Italy, in the area of Veneto. Apparently they are using a rented car and travel to see various cathedrals and monuments, among them the lovely villla rotonda by Palladio. The trip was a birthday present of Albert II to his wife.

Magazine 'Dag Allemaal' published an article about the lovers of Queen Paola.... and there were many according to them:

- Aldo Vastapane, importer of Mercedes cars and became rich with duty free shops in airports. He was rumoured to be the father of Laurent.

- Salvatore Adamo, singer.

- François-Xavier de Donnéa, former mayor of Brussels.

- Albert de Mun, French photographer.

- Piero Della Rosa, banker from Rome.

The list also contains a member of the Belgian aristocracy, a former minister and an art-maecenas.

For a while prince Laurent spoke about his mother as 'la pute Italliene' to the staff.
Paola had pied-a-terres at Avenue Louise in Brussels and in Paris where she received her lovers.

The magazine is a gossip magazine but they claim to have good sources and the article is all over the press in Belgium and The Netherlands.

Very busy lady. Lucky for her she did not have to work for a living.

Philippe must be *thrilled* that this came out right now, it's just what he needs *rolleyes*

Marengo 10-31-2013 03:03 AM

I don't think it will harm Philippe one bit actually, very little of the content will have come as a surprise to most Belgians.

*So who married you?
Oh, it was my mother's ex-lover, who happened to be Brussels mayor at the time* :ermm:
Talk about awkward ;)

maria-olivia 10-31-2013 06:39 AM

It will not warm Philippe at all, this was known in Belgium .
Adamo said recently he never was Paola's lover!
Some Belgians are still sure that Laurent is the son of Aldo Vastapane ?
With our new King and Queen this will never happen anymore !

MAfan 10-31-2013 06:45 PM

If I don't mistake, also Vastapane has already said several times that he has never been Queen Paola's lover and that during the 1960s they actually had only few occasions to meet.

The new hot news about Albert today is that he asked for contacts to be made with the prime minister with a request for higher income than what was decided at the time of his abdication!!
In fact the government just made a shift between the income of both the crown prince at that time and the outgoing king. The matter was already brought to the attention of the Parliament which expressed negative views on any change to be made.
This is commented very negatively in the press.

Lee-Z 11-07-2013 04:29 PM

yes, the vibe i got from the articles i read was more-or-less "we all have to economize, maybe K.Albert should first try to economize too before asking for more money", he gets a little over 900000 euro a year at the moment

Al_bina 11-07-2013 07:32 PM

I find King Albert's request for more funds puzzling. He is privy to complex workings in the government and internal situation. Given the attempts to reduce all expenses associated with the royal family and a gloomy economic situation in Europe, King Albert should not expect the government to be accommodating. Hopefully this request will not reflect on King Philippe's image.
