I'm made up, especially for Delphine.

The cynical part of me wonders how much of this is damage control by Albert and having seen how Philippe dealt with it and was praised for it I wonder if that played a part. I hope not, I hope this is the start of the building of some sort of relationship between them, but sad it took all this to have it happen.

I'm sure it's entirely damage control.  Albert & Paola's spin-doctors have engineered this in light of the court outcome and the subsequent actions of their other children.  This couple lost their long, drawn-out, expensive legal and emotional battle against Delphine and needed to draw a line in the sand and make the best of the new situation. 

I don't think they had to do this; they could just have remained silent and never had to be seen with Delphine.  But they did this and it gives them a few credit points.  It's a big psychological win for Delphine IMO. 

I think it is possible that Philippe has told his father and mother that he plans on including Delphine in some public events, or at least family events, so it was deemed necessary for these three to be photographed together now so everyone knows they have met with seeming cordiality.

 Star This is a very balanced, logical look at the situation.

I agree - Paola has no responsibility to have a relationship with Delphine but she should stand back ... Albert won't be here for many more years - let him and his other children decide how to deal with this

Just a very random thought, but I sure hope this case gives pause to the other royals out (and anyone else there) fooling around.  Now that DNA is a thing, it’s pretty much impossible to hide any children that might come along as a result.
