Princess Marie-Esmeralda of Belgium

Above we see a photograph of Princess Marie-Esmeralda of Belgium, youngest daughter of King Leopold III and his second wife, Princess Lilian. A journalist and a free-lance writer by profession, Esmeralda is married to Dr. Salvador Moncada, a renowned South American cardiologist. The couple have two children, Alexandra and Leopoldo. Esmeralda has devoted much time and effort to the defense of the memory of her much-maligned parents. She has published two books dedicated to her father, Léopold III, mon père and Léopold III photographe. She is the president of the Fonds Léopold III pour l'Exploration et la Conservation de la Nature.
