Recently, queen Mathilde has accepted becoming the godmother of Zaineb Tebbi from Ghent, the youngest daughter of a family with Algerian roots. The girl was born on the 20th of October 2016 and the request was officially made by the city of Ghent who acts as intermediary.
Two years ago, Mathilde became godmother of another 7th daughter, in complete discretion.
Zaineb received an engraved silver cup from the queen.
It was presented by mayor Daniel Termont of Ghent.
When the godchild becomes 15 she's usually invited at the royal palace for an official occasion, like the christmas concert.
