    Princess Astrid on Economic Missions: 2013 -

    Nice pictures of Astrid with CP Haakon and Princess Martha Louise. Their respective paternal grandmothers (Astrid and Martha of Sweden) were sisters, which makes them second cousins

    Norwegian historian Trond Noren Isaksen seems to have some info about the Spanish wedding gift tiara. In a Facebook post a few days ago (to commemorate what would have been Fabiola's 96th birthday), he wrote that "this tiara was among the jewels that were left to members of her Spanish family...

    Royal Family of Belgium - Current Events Part 9 (Jan 2019 - present)

    Good to see a few videos from yesterday's event, as well! King Albert must have celebrated quite a few times this past week (it's not every day that you turn 90, after all)

    Pregnancies Announcements 2024

    Congratulations! It will be the first great-grandchild for the Duchess of Montpensier (first wife of the late Count of Paris), and, possibly (there could be others we don't know about) the fifth great-great-grandchild of the late Count and Countess of Paris, Henri and Isabelle, after Olympia...

    General Questions and Informations about the Royal Family of Belgium

    It clearly wasn't her intention to reveal anything, it's a pity that journalists couldn't be more respectful in this case, but I'm not surprised they published it anyway. As for the vote itself, according to political analyst Carl Devos in Het Nieuwsblad, it isn't very surprising. Paola is...

    King Albert II & Queen Paola - Current Events Part 5

    That's indeed what he says in the interview (and they say the same in the more recent documentary "Paola côté jardin" , from 2022). The divorce attempt, however, was in 1976, and while they certainly decided to remain married back then, their complete and sincere reconciliation took a few more...

    King Albert II & Queen Paola - Current Events Part 5

    That's also what King Albert himself said about it. When asked what he would have done differently, with hindsight, during his reign, he answered they would've come back immediately after the young girls' bodies were found. It was apparently the biggest regret of his reign. At that time, it was...

    According to Het Nieuwsblad there will also be a family celebration in Southern France in late June. Maybe pictures will be released for the occasion, as it was the case for their 60th wedding anniversary in 2019
