Belgium’s New Princess Asks Nothing Of Estranged Family

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – An artist who won a legal battle to prove that Belgium’s former King Albert II is her father said on Monday she was not expecting anything from her new family, after a court last week made her a princess.

Delphine of Saxe-Cobourg was granted the title as a result of a court ruling on Oct. 1 after a DNA test showed the former monarch was her father, her lawyers said last week. She changed her surname from Boel to Saxe-Cobourg, her father’s family name.

“If I had done this for the title, the money, all that I would have lost,” she told reporters during her first news conference as a royal in Brussels. “I’m still going to be Delphine, I’m not going to be hanging out in the streets and say please call me princess.”
