  1. first of all, Paola was not born a princess as her father’s titles are of pretense. Moreover, the three sons were baptized in the Roman Catholic church. Their first son, Albert, was baptized in the Queen’s Chapel, a St. James’s Palace, in a Roman Catholic ceremony. Leopold was baptized at St; Peter’s in the Vatican.
