That her identity is settled? She should not suffer because her (up to now alleged) father had a marriage crisis and couldn't keep his pants zipped, with offspring results.
Not everyone has monetary gain to achieve. She won't inherit Jacques BoŽl's fortune, so? Money does not make up for everything.

I seriously don't see what is so difficult to understand about that, some people truly seem to have a lack of empathy.



My take is his denial that he conceived her in the first place and that he started to pretend like she's air from the moment she (or he) was outed that stings the most.

This.



I wonder whether and when we will hear the result of this appeal, if at all.

I don't think she has any doubts about where her roots are. So this lawsuit is not about finding one's root, but rather compellin her alleged biological father to disclose her roots publicly .



As another poster said, blood doesn't necessarily make a family. Delphine is de facto disowning the family who raised and embraced her, even if she was not a blood relative, to put into public shame another family that doesn't want anything to do with her. Some posters here may say I am guilty of lack of empathy, but again, I don't see how anything good can come out of it. A DNA test won't give Delphine a new family while she burns the bridges to her older one at the same time.



King Albert moved on and now has a happy marriage with Paola towards the end of their lives. His behavior towards Delphine and her mother was, however, indeed despicable. Rather than seeking reconciliation with him, I feel like Delphine simply wants to punish him and, as I argued, seek vindication for her mother. Although Albert probably deserves it, it is a personal vendetta where nobody wins and everybody loses something.

When the lower court in 2017 confirmed Jacques BoŽl as the legal father of Delphine BoŽl on the basis that, according to the court, for many years an emotional bond had existed between them and they had behaved as a father and daughter, Delphine's attorney Marc Uyttendaele stated that this was not true, saying it had been clearly demonstrated that there was no emotional bond between Jacques and Delphine. He described their relationship as marked by "indifference, even suffering".

https://www.rtbf.be/info/belgique/de...pas?id=9567276

The focus has naturally been on King Albert II instead of Jacques BoŽl, given that the King was the head of state whereas the Jonkheer is a private citizen, but Delphine BoŽl's attempt to legally disown her birth father (as a side note, he did not adopt her but, pursuant to the civil code, was automatically established as her father at birth in virtue of being married to the woman who birthed her) and compel her biological father to disclose his paternity could, potentially, have been led by the actions of Jacques as much as those of Albert. Whether that was the case or not, it seems clear that both of the fathers have fractured their relationship with their daughter and refused to be involved in her life.

Probably, we will never be able to determine for certain what the outcome would have been if Jacques BoŽl had in fact been a loving father to the child whom he publicly accepted as his daughter. But from the statements and reports I have read about the case, it is apparent to me that if both Jacques and Albert had a positive relationship with their daughter, this court case would never have transpired.

Yes, and has attended court hearings and spoken to the press in support of her daughter.

She looks like some of her half siblings and I think resembles the kings mother in some ways. I do not understand why the King has refused to acknowledge her. It makes no sense to me. He had an affair and a child from that affair. Badly done of him to refuse her.

I had "hoped" that this case would be nearing its end by now, I suppose that was naive.

Perhaps King Albert was okay with Delphine's existence when it was a private matter. Then it was pushed into the open and he suddenly changed his behaviour like 180 degrees.
But it's not Delphine's fault that she is alive.

For lack of knowledge about the matter, it sort of makes me wonder how "open" the crisis of King Albert and Paola and everything it entailed was at the time. But that is not for this thread nor do I have a specific wish to browse through all information there is.

I do agree with amaryllus that blood does not automatically mean family,
but all in all this is a very sad case.

If Jacques Boel was not able to love the fruit of his wife's betrayal as his own child, he should have divorced her.

They actually divorced when Delphine was about 10 years old, I believe. That doesn't necessarily imply , however, that they didn't have a father-daughter relationship as Delphine now claims.

This whole story would have been a barely-remembered footnote to Albert’s biography if he had quietly recognized her years ago. Now it will be the first thing many think about him.

They divorced in 1978 and Sybile and Delphine moved to the UK. It was also around that time she last saw King Albert so the two things are probably connected.

In the pics I've seen of Delphine she also resembles Queen Astrid.

I want to point out that Mr Jacques Boel since 1999 never spoke to the Press , remain silent during 20 years.
Meanwhile , Barones de Selys Longchamp gave interviews to the press with very private Details.

Why would he? Mr. BoŽl has nothing to gain by talking to the press, while the baroness is supporting her daughter’s quest for recognition.

Without wanting to be rude: that is an easy claim to make.

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.

Het Nieuwsblad wrote at the time that, now that the attorney general has intervened against King Albert II's appeal, it is almost certain to be dismissed by the Court of Cassation on December 13.

If the assumption proves to be correct, the paternity case would then be remitted to the Brussels Court of Appeal. Within the next few weeks, the Brussels Court of Appeal would be expected to order a comparison of Albert's DNA testing results with those of Delphine BoŽl, and the results would become public knowledge.

Based on earlier reports, dismissal of the appeal would also have the result that Jonkheer Jacques BoŽl loses his position as the legal father of Jonkvrouw Delphine BoŽl. (He maintains it for the moment, since the Court of Appeal's decision of October 2018 has not become final.) At that point, Delphine would be eligible to drop the BoŽl name, if she wishes to.
