Trump embraces political battle with pick of Amy Coney Barrett, a conservative favorite, for Supreme Court

  Trump embraces political battle with pick of Amy Coney Barrett, a conservative favorite, for Supreme Court Trump's nomination of Barrett will be a major campaign issue, coming just three days before his first debate with Democratic challenger Joe Biden. “This nomination is an attack on our very democracy," said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. Republicans and conservative allies applauded Barrett as a strict constructionist who will interpret the Constitution and not make law from the bench. "Judge Barrett has impressed the brightest judicial and legal minds with her profound understanding of the law," tweeted Sen. John Cornyn, R-Tex.

Delphine Boël leaving court in Brussels with her lawyer, Marc Uyttendaele. Boël ’s claim received a vital boost last autumn when the court of appeal ruled that Jacques Boël , with whom she grew up, was not her biological father and instructed an expert to carry out a test to compare her DNA with Albert’s.

Delphine Boël , the love child of the former king of Belgium , Albert II, is asking a court to grant her royal status, months after she was recognized as his fourth child. Berenboom also told CNN that the proceedings , which are now with the appeals court in Brussels, were part of those launched in 2013

Princess Delphine, 52, is King Albert II's daughter. The King, who ruled Belgium from 1993 to 2013, reportedly had an affair with Delphine's mother, Baroness Sybille de Selys Longchamp, between 1966 to 1984, leading to the princess' birth.

King Albert denied that Princess Delphine was his daughter until January of this year, when the Belgian court forced him to take a DNA test. Albert would have had to pay €5,000 ($5,586) per day if he didn't provide a sample for the test.

The test proved Princess Delphine's paternity after she started proceedings in 2013, and it led Albert to "accept" that she is his daughter, though she has publicly stated he is her father since 2005. The 85-year-old king has three children with his wife, and his son King Philippe is the current reigning monarch of Belgium.

In September, Delphine petitioned the court of Brussels to grant her the royal title and privileges that Albert's other children have had their entire lives. The court ruled in Delphine's favor on Thursday, making her an official princess.

The ruling makes Princess Delphine eligible for a royal inheritance when the King passes, and she and her two children are now able to change their last name to Saxe-Cobourg, which is King Albert's last name, as BBC reported.

Princess Delphine will not receive a royal endowment, though King Albert has to pay the legal fees she incurred during the lengthy court proceedings.
