That is an interesting explanation. I can see what you mean.


For the same reason I have always had a soft spot for his brother - GabriŽl always had something gentle about him and that appeals to...

Hmm, I prefer GabriŽl of the two boys. I don't know, Emmanuel has something sullen about him, something glum. Moody, what do you call it.
GabriŽl has always been my favourite, along with Elisabeth....

Date of photo taken says July 21, 2019 so it is in any case a more recent picture.

I suppose that it was 23, as Belgium was part of the Netherlands before 1831. Before 1901, in the Netherlands one didn't reach maturity (calendar-wise) until 23.


So when Belgium became...

Baudouin was roughly 1 1/2 month short of his 21st birthday. Born September 7, 1930 - ascension to the Belgian throne July 17, 1951.

I have seen footage of his ascension and, what you say, poor...

I understand, but on the Belgian monarchy website in the children's section it says that the children also have small a dog. It is in Emmanuel's profile.

I also have seen Elťonore photographed...

That would be Patrick Renault (assisted by, I assume, Rafike Yilmaz).


I agree that they are quite open with family pictures where we get the semiannual photo shoots/media moments.

She is indeed daddy's girl - she is a real Coburg in her looks. She is a classical beauty, not a "catwalk model". And I don't mean anything disparaging with that.

Her brother GabriŽl is really...

I have always thought that GabriŽl is the best looking one of the bunch, even when he was a little boy. He is a d'Udekem d'Acoz in his looks. I much prefer him and his elder sister, who is clearly...
