Belgium's Paola admits affair: no trace of guilt

Albert of Belgium made headlines with his affair, but his wife Paola was also unfaithful. For the first time she speaks openly about her liaison.

Brussels – In a new TV documentary, Paola from Belgium (84) shows her very private side and gives intimate insights into her family and love life. The latter was very turbulent for years and full of ups and downs, which cost the wife of former king Albert II (87) a lot of strength.

When the young aristocrat Paola Ruffo di Calabria married Prince Albert in July 1959 and married into the Belgian royal family, she probably had no idea what challenges married life would bring. Dark clouds quickly gathered over the palace. Albert is said to have started an affair with Baroness Sybille de Sélys Longchamps (80) in the mid-1960s, and their daughter Delphine (53) was born in 1968. As Paola reveals in the documentary “Paola, côté jardin”, the marriage drama made it difficult for her.* reveals what Paola and Albert’s son Philippe says about his parents’ marriage crisis.

The mother of three ended up having an affair herself, which she openly admits to in the TV documentary, according to media reports. In 1970, she was photographed strolling alongside French journalist Albert de Mun, who worked for Paris Match magazine. However, the former Belgian queen makes it clear that she has no feelings of guilt about her liaison with Albert. “It’s a bit selfish (…). But deep down I have no regrets. i wasn’t happy For ten years I wasn’t happy at all,” the 84-year-old quoted the “Purepeople” portal as saying. * is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
