, did you hear the rumours about an upcoming book on the Belgian royal family?
It's a book full of speculation on the private life of the royals. A couple of leaks (it's officially presented and published tomorrow or so):
- Queen Fabiola is rumored to have been a bit of a sex kitten in the 50s and 60s with several lovers + a number of men she tried to get in bed.
No idea where they get this from)
- Prince Filip, our crown prince, is rumored to have an arranged marriage with Mathilde + all 4 children are said to be a product of artificial insemination. (reason to come up with that theory apparently is that the children are all born in a clinic specialising in artificial insemination
Bit far-fetched if you ask me)
- Furthermore, prince Filip is rumored to have had quite a long relationship with a count (curious to see where the writer gets that from).
- An interview with the king is featured in the book (the monarch is not allowed to give interviews)
About Filip and Mathilde's marriage. Mathilde's body language towards Filip is quite loving and positive so either, she's a very good actress or it's a real marriage.
The odd thing is that the journalist who wrote the book has a fairly good reputation but the leaks now suggest that the book reads as if it's a publication for the trashy gossip press.
