  • Description

    A SON WAS BORN TO PRINCESS PAOLA OF BELGIUM ON SATURDAY AT BELVEDERE CASTLE IN BRUSSELS. THE PRINCESS IS THE WIFE OF PRINCE ALBERT, THE YOUNGER BROTHER OF KING BAUDOUIN, AND AT PRESENT HI HEIR.

    THE NEW PRINCE, TO BE NAMED LAURENT, WEIGHED JUST OVER 7LBS (3.3 KILOGRAMS) AT BIRTH AND HAS BLUE EYES AND AUBURN HAIR. HE IS THE THIRD CHILD OF THE ROYAL COUPLE.

    SOON AFTER THE BIRTH OF THE CHILD, KING BAUDOUIN AND QUEEN FABIOLA VISITED THE PRINCESS AND THE NEWLY-BORN CHILD. THEY WERE FOLLOWED BY SEVERAL OTHER VISITORS AND CARS BEARING BOUQUETS OF FLOWERS.

    LAST MONTH A BRIEF STATEMENT FROM THE COURT IN BRUSSELS DISCLOSED THAT QUEEN FABIOLA HAD LOST THE CHILD SHE WAS EXPECTING. IT WAS THE SECOND TIME THAT THE QUEEN HAS HAD A MISCARRIAGE. THE EVENT HAS STRENGTHENED RUMOURS THAT THE ELDEST SON OF PRINCE ALBERT - PRINCE PHILIPPE - WOULD BE OFFICIALLY RECOGNISED AS HEIR TO THE THRONE.
