Royal Profile: Alexandra Léopoldine Moncada

Alexandra Léopoldine Moncada was born 4 August 1998 as the elder of two children of Princess Marie-Esméralda of Belgium, Lady Moncada and Salvador Moncada {Source}. She is a granddaughter of King Leopold III & Princess Lilian, thus making her a niece of King Albert II and first cousin of King Philippe of Belgium {Source}. She has one younger brother {Source}:
  1. Leopoldo Daniel Moncada (2001)
Alexandra is not in line for the Belgian throne nor is considered a member of the Belgian Royal Family due to the way her grandfather married her grandmother (religious ceremony before the civil ceremony). As she is considered a private citizen, she does not perform any royal functions.

From my research, it appears she grew up rather normally in London.

In February 2011, she joined her parents, brother, aunt Princess Léa , and stepcouisn, Renaud Bichara (Princess Lea's son from her 2nd marriage) for the premiere of the film,Léopold III, mon père {Source}. In December 2014, she took part in "Le Bal", also known as Le Bal des Debutantes{Source}. Also in attendance were Isabel Beatty (daughter of actors Warren Beatty & Annette Benning), Anna Cleveland van Ravenstein (daughter of model Pat Cleveland), among many others{Source}.
