Sorry, but that's rather harsh. MC is definitely not a likeable person, the way she portrays herself and sells out her family. But she probably had a few difficult issues with her family, and if even half of what she says is true, I can'tblame her for not making up with her mother.

Princess Marie-Christine decided (or has to) never to come to Belgium anymore.
She did not attend her Father , Mother and Brother’s Funerals.
Although for Prince Alexander Funerals they were flowers from Daphne (her second surname). She has no Children.

Has there been any news of Marie-Christine? It's been years since I've read anything about her.

During Marie-Christine's childhood, magazines reported that she was musically talented and that her grandmother, Queen Elisabeth, encouraged her in this interest.

No . When her Mother passed away, she did not come to Belgium.
She wanted only money and money nothing else.

Newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws traced down Princess Marie-Christine. She lives 'isolated' in 'the American wilderness' in a village called Sequim in Washington State. In 2007 she paid 325.000 dollars for a house in this village with her partner Jean-Paul Gourgues.

Her sister Princess Esmeralda said four years ago that MC did not want to be in touch with family and friends from Belgium. Esmeralda said that she was saddened by that decision but that she respects it.

According to HLN there are great concerns about Princess Marie Christine. An 'old friend' spoke to magazine 'Story' and claims that the princess is manipulated by her husband. 'He can talk her into anything he wants. He convinced her that she is afraid of flying so he could gamble away her money". The magazine also spoke to Pss Esmeralda, who speaks about 'a sad situation'.

The story of this princess is very strange.
I just found out she was a half-sister of Baudouin and Albert II and Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte of Luxembourg.

On April 17, 2007, in a rare interview, she said that "the abolition of the monarchy may be beneficial to Belgium."
http://www.humo.be/tws/deze-week/136...an-belgie.html

Apparently she has no connection with the Belgian Royal Family and most of her family.
If she's being manipulated by her husband, the situation is even more complicated.

She has not had an easy life, it seems.

Her sister spoke about his situation last October.

They've been married for a very long time. They shared good and very bad times. Why suppose he manipulates her ? They keep themselves to themselves.

Nobody knows.
But when Princess Lilian passed away she needed money , money and nothing about her past. Her Brother and Sister had to sell all because she wanted her participation.
