Justice delayed is justice denied

Pushed to my last resort
I took my father to court
It was all over the news
The family was not amused
Some people were horrible
It was terrible
I kept level headed
In the old days I would be beheaded
The judges listened with deaf ears
Knowing the outcome was clear
Power took over
The whole charade was a cover
Lady justice is not blind
She has left me in a bind
Blacklisted, outcast
My future will not be my past
Justice is a nonsense word
That does not exist in this world

Persmoment – Moment de presse: Delphine de Saxe-Cobourg Gotha

Live gestreamd op 5 okt. 2020

La cour d’appel de Bruxelles a statué en la faveur Delphine Boël qui est devenue officiellement princesse de Belgique. Elle change donc désormais de nom et prend celui de son père, de Saxe-Cobourg-Gotha.
 

In maart 2017 oordeelde de rechtbank nog dat de aanvraag van Delphine ongegrond was:

Albert II is niet de wettelijke vader van Delphine Boël

Professor Grondwettelijk Recht Marc Uyttendaele maakt in de inleiding van de persconferentie o.a. duidelijk welke beproefing de gerechtelijke procedure van 7 jaar was.

1 The Secret Princess: King’s love child in court battle for recognition | 60 Minutes Australia

11 okt. 2020

Game of Thrones (2020) 60 MINUTES reporter Liam Bartlett used to consider the British Royal family to be the masters – and mistresses – of scandal. Now he thinks they may have to hand over their crown to the Belgian Royal family, who have sensationally been ordered to acknowledge and recognise a brand-new princess. However, this decree is not a reason for official celebration on the streets of Brussels because, rather embarrassingly, the new royal is the 52-year-old love child of the former King, Albert II. Back in the 1960s when he was a prince, the supposedly happily married and deeply religious Albert took a long-term lover. Delphine Boel was the surprise consequence of the illicit affair. For most of her life she dutifully kept mum about her lineage, until a bitter falling out with her father changed her mind.

2 Albert II took his role seriously

Albert was born in 1934, with an older sister, Josephine, and a big brother, Baudoin. A driving accident robbed the young children of their mother, Queen Astrid, only a year later. During World War Two, Belgium surrendered to Germany. The royal family, scattered in exile, would only return to Belgium – after a regrouping in Switzerland – in 1950. This followed a controversial referendum and Albert’s father Leopold’s handing the throne over to the older son, Baudoin.
 

Nine years later, Albert married Princess Paola of Italy, and they made three children. He held several official posts, and travelled widely.

Baudoin reigned for 42 years, dying in 1993. He and Queen Fabiola, originally from Spain, had no offspring. Although Albert’s eldest son, Philippe, had been prepared for the role, Albert, now aged 59, was first in line. Only a year later, the country became a federal state and a new constitution was signed.

This was a big influence on his reign, and he made it his cause to promote inter-regional and inter-communal relations. A strong supporter of multi-cultural society, Albert spoke out openly and forcefully for pluralism and against xenophobia and discrimination. He earned his reputation as an unpretentiously warm and accessible king.

He rallied the people in 1996, when Belgium was dragged to the worst depravity by the pedophile serial murderer rapist Marc Dutroux. The anguished Belgians were deserted by their dysfunctional police and legal institutions, and failing politicians. Albert held meetings of condolence with the families of the children, and laid down a line the mourning nation craved.

He said. “The Queen and I are convinced that this tragedy must now be the occasion for a moral leap and a profound change in our country. Let each authority behave with humility, and self-examination.”

Belgians appreciated their sovereign for this. The next day’s White March filled central Brussels. Gatherings had been held outside courtrooms the week before. People had declared a national shame. Now they carried white.

Albert was never far from the front lines in politics, either, when opposing language communities threatened to dismantle the country – increasingly after 2007 – notably a few years later when divisions left it without a government for 541 days, and he did his part in the striving for answers.

“I wouldn’t be faithful to my role if I failed to reiterate solemnly the risks a long crisis runs for all Belgians, and if I didn’t exhort anew every man and woman politician to show themselves as constructive, and to swiftly find a balanced solution to our problems.”

3 Albert II: Belgium’s ex-king admits he fathered a love child

28 jan. 2020

The former monarch has acknowledged he is the biological father of artist Delphine Boël, whose paternity claim he has been battling for years. …
 
 

It is so strange
How I derange
When I was born
My parents were torn
Did they want me?
Am I not to be?
But the problem was I came out
And it moved everything about
So now I exit
That nasty feeling persists
Should I go away?
Or should I stay?
No fun that confused feeling
To always want to be feeling

4 ‘Dochter’ koning Albert rukt op

De kansen van de vrouw die beweert dat de Belgische koning Albert II haar vader is nemen toe, zegt Ruud Mikkers in TELEGRAAF VANDAAG met Maarten Steendam.
 

I feel I am such a pain
Am I in the way?
I feel like running away
Especially from this place
They think how dare I show my face
What I have done to trigger this?
Without all this would my live be a bliss?
I will not accept their judgments and nasty comments
Nor be pushed down and surrounded by frowns
Or fake smiles that I can see from miles
I am in such pain
I do not deserve this fame of shame

11 L’officialisation du parc Delphine Boël à Gand est à l’étude

2 feb. 2020

Delphine Boël est bien la fille du Roi Albert II. Mais ce qui n’est pas encore officiel, c’est l’appellation du parc situé le long de la Burggravenlaan et du chemin de fer à Gand. Depuis 2010, un petit espace vert porte le nom de la désormais quatrième enfant d’Albert. Une initiative d’un comité de riverains de l’avenue Princesse Clémentine, “Viva Clementina”. Le jour de l’inauguration, le 28 août 2010, Delphine Boël était même présente sur place pour dévoiler la plaque “Park Delphine Boël”, belgische kunstenares, 1968″.
Mais l’appellation, on l’a dit, n’a aucune valeur officielle. C’est désormais un lieu-dit qui a toutefois une reconnaissance numérique. Google a planté une indication “Parc Delphine Boël” sur ses cartes. La reconnaissance de Delphine actée par le Roi Albert II lui-même, les autorités gantoises et les riverains souhaiteraient aller plus loin dans la démarche.
Guy Reynebeau, ancien échevin gantois SP.A, qui avait organisé la cérémonie d’inauguration en 2010, a été un des premiers cette semaine à réclamer une formalisation de l’appellation dans un post facebook. “Lorsque le projet a été porté au conseil communal, il a fait couler beaucoup d’encre”, se souvient l’ancien mandataire dans une interview au Nieuwsblad. “Notamment parce qu’un parc prend son nom dans un quartier qui n’a que des noms de rues royales : Prinses Clementinalaan, Koningin Elisabethlaan, Koningin Astridlaan. Il s’agit donc d’une reconnaissance officieuse. Une fausse plaque signalétique de rue a été réalisée et placée à la lisière du parc. Le signe ne devait pas non plus sembler trop réel pour empêcher quiconque d’avoir à appeler les services d’urgence et qu’il y ait confusion.”
Aujourd’hui, celui-ci plaide pour la reconnaissance officielle. Pourquoi ? Afin de favoriser la féminisation de l’espace public, toujours dominé par des références masculines. “Une rue qui porterait le nom de Delphine Boël ? Cela n’aurait pas de sens et cela ne se fait qu’après le décès d’une personnalité. Mais officialiser l’appellation du parc, c’est tout à fait possible.”
Patrick Ysebie, du comité de quartier, a été l’origine de la création du parc, dans un esprit frondeur. “A Gand, nous sommes un peu des rebelles. Il faut savoir que ce parc est un endroit peu connu mais très agréable. On y trouve des arbres centenaires. Et c’est là que se trouvait jadis la gare Saint-Pierre”, déclare celui-ci à la VRT. “Tout le monde pensait que jamais elle ne viendrait à l’inauguration. On nous prenait pour des fous.”
A l’époque, Delphine Boël est une personnalité mais son lien avec la famille royale reste encore sujet à supputations. Depuis, les choses ont changé.
Pour les autorités gantoises, il faut toutefois se conformer à certains critères. “Seuls les membres de la famille royale vivants peuvent donner leur nom à une artère, à un lieu”, exemple avec le boulevard du Roi Albert II à Bruxelles inauguré en 1999. Dans le cas de Delphine Boël, “il y a une reconnaissance mais le statut juridique n’est pas encore très clair. En tout cas, ce qui sûr, c’est que Gand veut pousser la féminisation de l’espace public”, disent les autorités citées par la VRT.
Si le dossier venait à trouver une issue favorable, le comité de quartier se dit prêt à inviter une nouvelle fois Delphine dans le cadre d’une cérémonie formelle.

11 Belgian king’s daughter fights for right to call herself a princess

11 sep. 2020

A woman who successfully fought a seven-year legal battle to prove she was the daughter of the former king of Belgium, Albert II, will learn next month whether, against the wishes of her father, she will be able to use the titles Her Royal Highness and the Princess of Belgium. Delphine Boël, 52, an artist and sculptor, whose mother had an extra-marital affair with Albert in the 1960s and 70s, argued in the Brussels court of appeal that she should also be able to use her biological father’s surname of Saxe-Coburg. The court will give its judgment on 29 October. King Albert, 86, who abdicated from the Belgian throne in 2013, was forced to acknowledge he was Boël’s biological father after a court-ordered DNA test last January. Boël, who had spent time with Albert as a child, nicknaming him Papillon (butterfly), had sought acknowledgement more than 20 years ago but her requests had been rejected. She launched a legal battle to prove paternity in June 2013, after the elder of her two children, Joséphine, was admitted to hospital with pneumonia, and she felt the absence of her biological father. Boël’s claim received a vital boost last autumn when the court of appeal ruled that Jacques Boël, with whom she grew up, was not her biological father and instructed an expert to carry out a test to compare her DNA with Albert’s. The king agreed to provide a saliva sample – which proved his paternity – after the courts threatened to fine him €5,000 (£4,370) for every day he refused. Marc Uyttendaele, Boël’s lawyer, said she simply wanted to be treated the same as Albert’s other children. “Those titles are things that belong to her, just as they belong to the other children of King Albert. My client never had any other intention than to be treated in exactly the same way as the other children of the king, her brothers and sister,” he said. Alain Berenboom, who is acting for the former king, said the issue of royal titles should be in the hands of the state, rather than the courts. “As far as the title is concerned, it is not a prerogative of the court but a prerogative of the executive power, in our opinion”, he said. On the day Albert stepped down from the throne seven years ago, citing ill-health, Boël’s mother, Baroness Sybille de Selys Longchamps, gave a TV interview where she spoke publicly for the first time about her affair with the king.“I thought I could not have children because I had had an infection,” she said of the relationship, which is said to have lasted from 1966 to 1984. “We had not taken any precautions.”She continued: “It was a beautiful period. Delphine was a love child. Albert was not the father figure but he was very sweet to her.”

Guilty guilty guilty

Why should I be burdened with this penalty?

There are many problems all over the place

Why should people pick on my face?

I am innocent

Was this an accident?

Sadly it is a lack of responsibility

This is a bad reality

It is evil and heartless

All this leaves me breathless

14 Belgique: une femme déclare être la fille non reconnue du roi

19 jun. 2013

 

Elle serait la fille non reconnue du Monarque Belge.
 

http://fr.euronews.com/2013/06/18/bel…

Elle serait la fille non reconnue du Monarque Belge. Delphine Boel âgée de 45 ans a fait comparaitre le roi Albert II et deux des ses enfants devant la cour de Bruxelles pour que le roi reconnaissent qu’il est bien son père. L’affaire éclate dans le royaume en 1999. Au cours d’un message adressé à Noel, le roi revient sur ses problèmes passagers de couple remontant aux années 60. Problèmes qui auraient donné lieu à une relation extra conjugale dont serait issue Delphine Boel. Mais dans la juridiction belge le roi ne peut comparaitre devant une cour, ce qui limitent les chances de Delphine Boel d’être reconnue.

STORYLINE:

The out-of-wedlock daughter of King Albert II has published a book, venting her anger at her father’s refusal to have anything to do with her and making her feel “like meat left to the dogs”.

In “Cutting The Umbilical Cord,” 40-year-old Delphine Boel writes of her pain caused by Albert’s neglect of her and her desire to end nine years
of fruitless bids to seek royal recognition.

No matter your background, she writes in her book, “you are responsible for the child you produce. You do not abandon it. That is what my father has done.”

Boel, an artist living in London, presented her book to the media in Brussels on Wednesday.

“I have said what I had to say,” Boel said in a news conference on Wednesday, referring to her published work. “If there’s any more questions, please go to the other party which is the palace, not me.”

Boel’s existence was revealed in an unauthorised 1999 biography of Queen Paola, Albert’s Italian-born wife, as the daughter of the Belgian monarch and Sybille Baroness de Selys Longchamps, the wife of a former Belgian industrialist.

In his Christmas message that year, King Albert admitted to an extramarital affair in the late 1960s saying it nearly wrecked his marriage to Queen Paola.

But he added, “We won’t dwell on this subject which is part of our private lives”.

Since 1999, Boel has made several public appearances in Belgium hoping to normalise relations with King Albert who has four grown children with Queen Paola.

When I was a child
I did not live in the wild
My mother took care
But there was something strange in the air
I was made to feel different
The gossip was persistent
I did not know the reason
Had there been a treason?
I grew up with a secret nag
And now I have a tag
People judge me and it makes me sad
One should not, It is bad
I hate racism/snobbism
It is a masked pessimism
We are all the same
There should be no shame

19 Confessions of a Prince

Witness History

Over a period of four years before his death in December 2004, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, the consort and husband of former Queen Juliana, gave a series of secret interviews to two Dutch journalists, on condition that nothing was published until after his funeral. In his conversations with the reporters, the German-born Prince sought to justify a string of extra-marital affairs and a million dollar bribe he had received in the 1970s from the American aircraft manufacturer Lockheed. Prince Bernhard also revealed for the first time the existence of an illegitimate daughter born as a result of an affair in the United States. The publication of the Prince’s confessions by De Volkskrantran newspaper shocked the Dutch public, but were met with silence by the Palace. Mike Lanchin spoke to Jan Tromp, one of the journalists who spent hours interviewing the controversial Dutch royalty.
