Court orders retired Belgian king to take paternity test

The Brussels appeals court has ordered the retired king of Belgium to take a DNA paternity test, overturning an earlier ruling in a suit brought by 50-year-old artist Delphine Boël.

Under the judgment, reported by Boël’s lawyers on Monday, King Albert II must take the test within three months or risk being presumed to be her father – although his lawyers could seek to challenge the court’s legal argument.

The 84-year-old monarch, who in 2013 abdicated in favour of his son Philippe after 20 years on the throne, has contested Boël’s claim for more than a decade.
