Re: What would have happened?
Yes, thank you for your input. I suspected as much. I look on the whole, sad story as a life of opportunities lost - on both sides. And through no fault of her own. His acceptance would have given them both a more peaceful and serene life.
It is something Delphine - whom I know quite well - and I have talked about in the past. If Albert had done the decent thing, she wouldn't have demanded anything.
I can't help wondering what would have happened had King Albert properly acknowledged Delphine as his child in some considerate way all those years ago. Setting aside all the ramifications of his position in the royal family at the time, would/could she have become the princess she is now?
