entertainment“>”Royal shock! A secret princess revealed. Meet the love child that the King of Belgium did not want anyone to know about. How Princess Delphine fought to be officially recognized as royalty ”, the television channel advertises before the broadcast. The fact that there is interest in the years-long struggle of Delphine (52), even in Australia, is not so strange to Danneels, who himself is also repeatedly asked to comment.
entertainment“>“It is an exceptional story and appeals to the imagination internationally, because it concerns a woman who obviously goes to war against a king, but also because it is very universal: a daughter who becomes so disillusioned with the way her father treats her and rejects that she goes to extremes to defend herself, her true identity and the right to exist of her children, ”said Danneels, who also wrote a biography about Prince Laurent.
‘Fascination and wonder’
entertainment“>“I think it’s incredibly beautiful and brave what she has done. It has eclipsed Albert’s legacy forever and completely and Paola is completely forgotten throughout the story, ”said Danneels. “The great thing is that Delphine is anything but a gold digger. I noticed with the producers of 60 Minutes amazement, fascination and admiration for her and her story in equal measure. They were also amazed at how accessible, open and frivolous Delphine turned out to be. ”
entertainment“>The recordings for the program took place on a special day, the author and journalist now working as a correspondent in Ireland told the ANP. It happened on October 1, the day on which the Court of Appeal in Brussels gave an unexpectedly quick decision and granted all of Delphine’s claims. “It was Delphine’s first overseas interview since King Albert’s recognition of paternity in January, but she herself did not know she would be a princess later that day.”
