Happy Birthday to Queen Mathilde of Belgium, who turns 45 today! The daughter of Count Patrick d’Udekem d’Acoz and the Polish Countess Anna Maria Komorowska, she grew up at Losange Castle in Belgium and worked as a speech therapist before her marriage. In 1999, she married Crown Prince Philippe of Belgium, the Duke of Brabant. The couple have four children, including the current Duchess of Brabant, and acceded to the throne in 2013, after the abdication of King Albert II. On top of her numerous Official Duties, Queen Mathilde is president of Unicef Belgium and serves as the World Health Organisation’s Special Representative for Immunization. I wish HM a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!
