The royal household has confirmed the engagement of Crown Prince Guillaume to Belgian Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy, with Premier Jean-Claude Juncker expected to make an official statement during the course of Thursday morning.

Since Prince Guillaume announced in November that he had a girlfriend, speculation has been rife on when the couple will get engaged.

The news has now been confirmed, though no details on a wedding date were given.

Stéphanie de Lannoy, the youngest of eight children of Count Philippe de Lannoy and Alix della Faille de Leverghem belongs to one of the oldest noble families in Belgium. She was born on February 18, 1984, and studying at the university of Louvain-la-Neuve and in Berlin.

More details on the couple and their engagement are set to emerge over the course of the day.
