Amalia from the Netherlands the future heir to the crown of his country, raised concerns in the royal family because of rumors of a possible romance with Prince Gabriel of Belgium, a situation prohibited by the Orange house marriage laws. Amalia was involved in various official activities to prepare as a future monarch, but her relationship with Gabriel, second in the line of royal succession in Belgium could create conflicts between the two monarchical houses.
Even now Amalia has a strong relationship with a German millionaire, the rumors about her relationship with Gabriel lead the House of Belgium to clarify that they are private matters and they will not comment on the matter.. The situation that arose between the Netherlands and Belgium was based on a 19th century law that prohibited marriage between the Orange-Nassau family and Belgian royalty.
This law establishes “the eternal separation of the Orange-Nassau family from any power in Belgium”. And, when the Prince of Belgium and the Princess of Orange marry, the influence of the Netherlands in Belgium will once again be indisputable. This is because he will be the legitimate monarch and she will be his wife.
It should be noted that this mandate, established during the Belgian revolution for independence, aims to avoid political influences from the royal house of the Netherlands in Belgium and guaranteed Belgian autonomy. Although a lot of time has passed since its implementation, uncertainty remains about the implications of a possible marriage between two young princes and how it will affect both countries.
Any marriage between Amalia and Gabriel needs the consent of the Parliament of both countries to be legally valid. In any case, everything shows that this will not happen and that the two can only have a forbidden love.
