He is postponing it by his appeal to the cassation court. Until he used all possible time/options and the decision is final (I wonder whether he will go on to the European Court 'if needed'), it seems legal for it not to be released.

I spoke with her husband yesterday who explained me the story of the Amazing Grace.When I saw Delphine , She looks more to Albert II than Princess Astrid.
She has Queen Astrid's eyes..

Shortly after the testing verdict, King Albert stated through his lawyer that Delphine's lawsuit was causing him to suffer, and Delphine answered through her lawyer that she has no wish to cause pain to anyone and certainly not to him whom she considers her father.

As far as the lawsuit itself is concerned, if I recall correctly, the Court of Cassation is not expected to issue a verdict on King Albert II's appeal of the decision about Jacques BoŽl's paternity before the end of this year at the earliest.

I believe private paternity testing is legal in the United States as well.

Thank you Tatiana! I hope this process can be expedited too!

The Belgian version of Paris Match has an interview with Delphine Boel & husband. There is a large photo of the two of them and their two children on the cover.

In 2012 Delphine and her mother received the message that they were on a list of 'politically exposed persons' which meant that the Royal Bank of Scotland closed their accounts.

The reason for Delphine to speak out now is that she discovered that her son is also blacklisted and on a list of politically exposed persons. She and her husband tried to open a bank account for him so he could learn how to manage his money but it was not possible for them to do so.

Yes indeed , just read Paris Match .
When Delphine wanted to open a Bank account for her Son Oscar (11) she noticed he was PEP , high Risk !.
She does not want her Son to be a "dirt PEP."
Therefore qhe gave an interview of Paris Match and had the Front page, asking not to attack her own Children..

King Albert’s appeal to Court of Cassation to be decided today


https://royalcentral.co.uk/europe/ki...-today-134067/


Delphine Boel pictured during a session at the Cassation Court following the demand of King Albert to contest the arrest of Brussels appeal court from 25 October 2018 which established that Jacques Boel is not the father of Delphine Boel and which asks for King Albert to make a DNA test with wich Delphine Boel intends to prove she is Albert II's biological daughter, today 29 November, in Brussels.

It will be an interesting decision to read about, as it will not really be about Jacques, Delphine, and Albert (although it will of course have consequences for them) but about the legal reasoning employed by the Court of Appeal (which the press reports at the time did not clearly explain).

Regardless of the final decision, nothing good will come out of it. The DNA test will be made public revealing the worst kept secret in Belgian history, i.e. that Delphine is most likely Albert's daughter, but that won't make her a member of the Royal Family or place her in the line of succession. Furthermore, it won't lead to a reconciliation between Delphine and her biological father or her half-siblings (quite the opposite actually). At the same time, she will have disowned her adoptive father, losing any inheritance rights she would otherwise have to his considerable fortune and also straining her relationship with his family.


I sense this is more about Delphine's seeking vindication for her mother than for herself.

I've not closely followed the reporting, but the impression I've received from the attorneys' statements is that Jacques, Albert, and Delphine have given up on reconciliation. I hope that I am wrong.


The attorney general intervened in favor of Delphine BoŽl today, arguing that the Court of Cassation ought to dismiss King Albert II's appeal of the October 25, 2018 verdict that Jonkheer BoŽl's legal paternity should be disowned and King Albert should undergo DNA testing. The decision of the Court of Cassation has been postponed to December 13 to allow the parties to submit written responses to the attorney general's intervention.

As for her losing the inheritance of her adoptive father I Don't think she will lose much when she inherits from Albert. In Belgium nobody can fully desherit one's children, one can only diminish the sum to a legal minimum.

Jacques BoŽl is much richer than King Albert and she would have been his only heir while as the daughter of King Albert she has to share an eventual inheritance with the other three of his children.

Did not Jacques BoŽl already effectively disinherit Delphine by placing his assets in different entities (trusts, or something of the sort), wherein they could not be touched?

Further, the DNA finding that Delphine was not the biological of Jacques would act as a supporting factor in his estate guaranteeing that she does not receive anything from it (-not that I am inclined to believe she wants anything from Monsieur BoŽl).

I seem to remember that yes. Like you, I believe her actions have shown Delphine to not be in this for the money.

I donít really follow this but so she gets the satisfaction of proving publicly Albert is her father. Some money. Great. But then what? The Royal family wonít welcome her and she alienated the man who raised her, she wonít get a vast fortune. What does she hope to gain?

She will know where her roots are. That means a lot to many people. Also maybe to prove that she was right. If what we've heard is true she, her mother and now also hervkids have been treated abominately because of the actions of King Albert.

I guess. But itís not like the Royal family will welcome her Or her kids and she had a family that raised And presumably loved her. Relationships are more important than being proven right and Blood does not make family. Thats just me though.
