eI think it shouln´t a problem at all if King Albert recognizes Delphine as his daughter. We are in 21st century and if King Albert is a gentleman will recognize Delphine.I don´t mean Delphine has a royal status after an official recognition, she can be a Saxe-Coburg but not a princess of Belgium.In Spain several years ago Leandro Ruiz Moragas went to court to seek an official recognition as King Alfonso XIII´s son. It was not neccesary any DNA test because Leandro had many proofs. The Royal Palace didn´t recognize anything but didn´t deny either. A Spanish court recognized Leandro Ruiz Moragas as King Alfonso´s son and now he is Leandro de Borbón.At the moment he has not any relationship with the Royal Family, before his recognition he was invited to some familiar events and he was treated as a brother by the Count of Barcelona. After he went to court there weren´t more invitations. Don Leandro has always said he wish to have a courtesy title because he is son of a King of Spain. But that title will never be given by the King Juan Carlos. You cannot have everything, he can be a Borbón but he is not an Infant of Spain. Sadly he has become an spenpentic character and sometimes he uses to appear in T.V. and his daughter appeared in a T.V. reality show, it was a shame !!!
Albert alluded to the relationship in his Christmas speech after Delphine's story became public. It would be better if Albert did the DNA test, and if the test proved positive, acknowledge, at least, Delphine.
I think the same, he should do it. But if she is her daughter, she shouldn´t be a princess of Belgium. In case he recognizes Delphine, this is a private matter. Being a prince or princess in a reignant monarchy is something more serious and Belgium doesn´t deserve to have a princess born out of wedlock.Albert of Monaco recognized his two children but they are not princes of Monaco.
Being acknowledged would not make her a princess of Belgium as she was not born of a legal and approved marriage. Albert was forced to go through DNA testing, and only owned up to fatherhood after his own father had died. Jazmin has the Grimaldi surname only because her mother put it on the birth certificate, and she was born before California changed its law regarding the father's surname for natural children. Under the newer law in California, the father has to acknowledge the child in order for the child to have his name. Jazmin's mother put Albert's name on the birth certificate without his knowledge as he had not acknowledged Jazmin. His son does not have the Grimaldi surname
Do you mean in America was possible to put father´s surname on birth certificate even in the case father didn´t know he had a child ?. In Spain both parent have to go to Palace of Justice and both have to sign on birth certifate.Yes I know Albert´s son has not Grimaldi as surname but Albert recognized him publicly and he will inherit part of his fortune although he is not officially a Grimaldi and hasn´t rights to Throne.I read Albert promised to Jazmin´s mother he would recognize Jazmin when Ranier died. When this happened, Tamara Rotolo went to newspapers to tell her history and after that Albert had to recognize her officially.
In California, you could until a year or so after Jazmin was born. This might help you understand how it works in the USA. Registering a birth is done at the hospital http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/free-books/living-together-book/chapter7-4.html
