Prince Philippe, Duke of Brabant, Prince of Belgium, born 15 April 1960, is the eldest son and heir apparent of Albert II, King of the Belgians and Queen Paola.
Prince Philippe married Mathilde d'Udekem d'Acoz, daughter of a Walloon Belgian noble family and female line descendant of Polish noble families such as the Princes Sapieha, on 4 December 1999 in Brussels, civilly at the Brussels Town Hall and religiously at the Cathedral of Saint Michel in Brussels; they have four children:
- Princess Elisabeth Thérèse Marie Hélène born 25 October 2001 - Prince Gabriel Baudouin Charles Marie born 20 August 2003 - Prince Emmanuel Léopold Guillaume François Marie born 4 October 2005 - Princess Eléonore Fabiola Victoria Anne Marie born 16 April 2008
Mathilde has so wonderful personality. She's warm, feminine, natural and joyful. She's a classy woman and always knows how to behave. People like her are often called angels. Mathilde is the opposite of Charlene.

I don't hear much about her here in the USA so It is nice to know something about her personality and how she serves her country. Mathilde is half Polish and no doubt her upbringing and family heritage have so much to do with her becoming the wonderful princess that she is. She seems to embody what a princess should be; cultured, educated, well-mannered, multi-lingual, expressing intelligent interests in cultural and social issue, respectful of her position and probably there is more to admire.
