Prince Laurent and sunglasses

It seems like Prince Laurent is almost always in sunglasses whenever I see him photographed. At first, I thought maybe the glasses were ones that automatically change when in sunlight, but having just watched the wedding video of Felix and Claire of Luxembourg, they stayed darkened long after he had entered the church.

Does anyone one know if there's an eye problem?

I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but I couldn't find a more appropriate one. I also didn't review this complete forum, since it's over 20 pages long!

Thanks in advance.

He is wearing sunglasses inside the cathedral too, I saw it.
Did you see on the video of the wedding of Prince Felix wedding that Margaretha and her husband forced him to enter the church with them.
The sunglasses of part of his look.

More and more protagonism from Laurent, I think he must be happý now, because he probably thinks that his brother trusts him in a way their father and uncle never did.

Thanks iceflower!

Laurent has been awfully active lately, seems like Philippe does trust his brother and the latter isn't letting him down so far (let's hope the trend continues)

Anyone knows why he climbs cars like this? it's not the first time I've seen him doing it like that.

this was really nice and the kiss at the end ...aww
I think with the accession to the throne of his brother there has been a possibility of a fresh start for Laurent as well and I have the suspect it has something to do with the great friendship between the two brothers' wifes (and also Laurent seems to be in good terms with Mathilde as well)
I hope people will give him a second chance and stop considering him the black sheep

^^ I agree Marchesina. Philippe's accesion to the throne seems to mark a new period in Laurent's life. He seems to be doing lots of engagements lately and hopefully people will improve the image they have about him. I always had the feeling he wasn't that bad as some say and that he lacked a lot of attention and afection, maybe.
You talk about a great friendship between Claire and Mathilde. Can you elaborate more on this?

BTW, does anyone know which language (french or dutch) do they speak in private?

needless to say, this couple is so down to earth and lovely. what a fantastic idea to do the interview themselves! they are obviously very much in love, and that's fantastic to see. i loved how claire treated laurent as "tu" when speaking french, even though it was a rather formal interview. and the references laurent makes to his wife and kids and how that changed his life and how grateful he is - what's not to love about it!? other royals who carry out interviews should learn from him how to be natural! last, but not least important, i find that the work that his foundation carries out is rather impressive - so humanistic. i like how he chose to get involved with less popular causes such as animal care, homeless care and integration of older people. well done to him and i really wish him all the best in his birthday and for many years to come so that he can continue such honourable work.

claire's french seems very native and she doesn't seem to have an accent - is this also the case when she speaks dutch?

well it's more feeling rather than a fact. I assume Mathilde and Claire are friends since she was chosen as a godmother for Princess Eleonore instead of Princess Astrid or Prince Laurent himself. and every time they have official engagements together they always share laughs (mainly thanks to Laurent).

I knew the BRF is a french speaking family and in the past this has caused some issue with the Flemish. so I suppose they speaks french (their children goes to a french school as far as I know). I don't speak Dutch but it seems to me Claire hasn't a strong french accent when she speaks (for example Mathilde as an incredibly strong french accent whenever she speaks in dutch or english)
