PrincephilippekidsAfter spending an hour of quality alone-time on Thursday with his newborn daughter, Princess Eléonore Fabiola Victoria Anne Marie, born on April 16th, and his wife Princess Mathilde, Prince Philippe of Belgium, 48, made a quick trip over to his children’s school to pick them up so they could meet their new baby sister for the first time. 

The first visitors to see the new baby, Princess Elisabeth, 6, Prince Gabriel, 4 ½, and Prince Emmanuel, 2 ½, smiled at the crowd who were calling out congratulations and even stopped to receive a few teddy bears meant as gifts for the new Princess. 

With them was also the children’s grandfather, King Albert.

I just love this couple! Philippe and Mathilde seem to have a loving marriage and adore their children. I was hoping they would have another little girl to complete their family (or maybe there will be more?)
