Baroness Sybille de Selys Longchamps (born 28 August 1941) is a Belgian noblewoman. She is the former mistress of King Albert II, with whom she has a daughter, Princess Delphine.[1]

Born in Uccle, she is the daughter of Count Michel François de Selys Longchamps (1910-1983) and Countess Pauline Julie Cornet de Ways-Ruart (1914-1953). In 1962, she married Jonkheer Jacques Boël (born in 1929), an industrialist and nephew of Count René Boël. They divorced in 1978 and in 1982 Sybille married a wealthy British widower, the Honourable Michael Anthony Rathborne Cayzer (1929-1990), a younger son of shipping tycoon Herbert Cayzer, 1st Baron Rotherwick.

In 1968, her daughter Delphine was born, in the midst of an 18-year-long extramarital relationship[2] with Albert, who was not king at the time. The relationship was made public in 1999.

De Selys Longchamps lived with her second husband in London and at his rural estate until the early 1990s and lives now in Brussels and Provence.
