Crown Prince Philippe To Marry Mathilde d'Udekem d'Acoz

In 1999 crownprince Philippe of Belgium (39) got engaged to jonkvrouw Mathilde d'Udekem d'Acoz, a 26-year old Belgian aristocrat, who untill her marriage worked as a speech therapist.
The couple had been able to keep their relation secret for 3 years.

Here are some pictures from september 1999, when Belgium first saw the face of their new future queen.
The presentation was in the park of the castle of Laeken, where the couple settled down after their marriage.
