Yay! Many congratulations to the Crown Princely Couple! :) :)

:) When Elisabeth was born the first pictures were published three days after her birthday (caesarian section).

In Gabriel´s case it was 2 days after the birth so we can expect the first pictures from tomorrow on...:)

Congratulations to Philippe and Mathilde! :)

Great news indeed. Congratulations to Philippe, Mathilde, Elisabeth, Gabriel, the rest of their families, and to Belgium.:) I saw the news from RTBF (Belgian channel), and in the end of the news was something about Mathilde and the hospital. I don't understand French but thought it meant she was in hospital, because there were a lot of reporters, other than the ones who were filming and making interviews. So I thought I would check out the royal websites to find out if I was right. Turns out I was.:) I'm not sure if I'm too fond of the name Emanuel, but I think it's nice they chose a biblical name like they did with Gabriel. But I'm sure within long the name will grow on me.:) Can't wait to see the first pictures.

Marengo 10-04-2005 09:16 AM

Congratulations to the couple!!! And what a lovely name it is! Very biblical (like Gabriel and Elisabeth).
Which Guillaume of Luxembourg is godfather? The hereditairy Grand Duke or his uncle (I assume his uncle).
