The Royal Couple’s Love Story and Sacrifice

Prince Amedeo, aged 38, and his 36-year-old wife, affectionately known as ‘Lili,’ exchanged vows in a captivating ceremony held at The Basilica of Our Lady in Trastevere, Rome, in July 2014.

However, the union came at a price. In marrying Lili, Amedeo relinquished his right of succession to the Belgian throne.

He was previously sixth in line, but the absence of a royal decree for their marriage from his uncle, King Philippe, sealed his decision to step away from the line of succession, as officially confirmed by the palace in 2015.

The Arrival of Alix Archduchess of Austria-Este

Their newest addition, Alix, was born on September 2nd, 2023, in the heart of Belgium’s capital city, Brussels.

Weighing a healthy 3.4 kilograms, Alix’s arrival was met with delight, and she and her mother, Princess Elisabetta, 35, are both reported to be doing well.

The families of both Prince Amedeo and Princess Elisabetta have enthusiastically joined in the celebration of this momentous occasion, underscoring the significance of Alix’s birth.

Celebrating the Joyous Occasion

The Belgian Royal Palace took to Twitter to share the heartwarming news, stating, ‘Prince Amedeo and Princess Elisabetta are delighted to announce the birth of their daughter Alix, born on Saturday, September 2 in Brussels.

Alix weighs 3.4 kg and is doing well, just like her mother. The families of the happy parents join in this great happiness.’

A Family in the Spotlight

This growing family already includes two older siblings: Anna Astrid Marie of Austria-Este, 7, and Archduke Maximilian Joseph of Austria-Este, 4.

In a strategic move, Amedeo chose to give up his right to the throne in 2015, paving the way for a life of independence with Lili.

This decision allowed his wife to bear the titles of Archduchess of Austria and Princess of Hungary, which she inherits through her husband’s father, Lorenz, the Archduke of Austria-Este.

The Noteworthy Background

Amedeo holds a special place in the Belgian royal lineage as the eldest grandchild of King Albert II and Queen Paola of Belgium.

He is also the son of King Philippe’s sister, who ascended to the throne following King Albert II’s abdication.

This makes the birth of Alix Archduchess of Austria-Este a noteworthy event, even though Amedeo relinquished his royal standing.

The ‘William and Kate’ of Belgium

Often referred to as the ‘William and Kate’ of Belgium, Prince Amedeo and Elisabetta’s love story and family expansion continue to captivate the public’s attention.

Their elegant wedding in Rome, though lacking explicit royal approval, remains a cherished memory.

As Amedeo and Lili embrace their roles as parents and continue to pursue their independent life, their story adds a unique dimension to the Belgian royal family’s history.

Both individuals have pursued successful careers outside of the monarchy, adding to their distinctive narrative.

Alix’s birth further cements their place in Belgian history, despite their departure from the royal succession line.
