The article gives a good overview of Laurent's most recent troubles, though they didn't even list all of them.

The article claims the following, which I can not remember:

Quote:
A few years ago, his spending became so lavish that Princess Claire was asked to dip into her savings.

An article from HLN: Laurent reageert bits op "demagogische" vraag over terugbetaling 16.000 euro - HLN.be

At the event the tv-journalist Kenneth Dée asked the prince if it was true that he had to refund 16.000 euros to the state. Laurent replied 'I don't think you can ask such a question for demagogic reasons'.

The article also states that the king was pressured by PM Michel to correct prince Laurent and ask him to refund the 16.000 euros.

He could have visited the motor show as private person without seeking publicity. Would have been more relaxing for his son too I guess. Instead he called the press to get some good PR and then bitches at the journalist who does his work and asks a valid question. Go figure.

You probably read too quickly. The article says something different: Laurent corrected his mistake by paying the money back, particularly because he was pressured by the PM. Philippe was only mentioned as brother of Laurent.

Aymeric seems to be such a sweet boy, he seems really interested in mechanics and cars, had a blast there

In my opinion, he and his cousin Gabriel are going to be huge heartbreakers when they get older, two of the most handsome little princes of Europe

Whatever it was, it's good to see..

On February 6 Prince Laurent and Princess Louise were invited to a concert by the Jeunesses Musicales de Bruxelles at the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles. They presented Petrushka with music composed by Igor Stravinsky.

He had to return funds because of "wrong" declarations and possibly feels he has to "deliver" for his state allowance?

"...But it's true that sometimes I get a little tired of it," he told the class, Belgian broadcaster RTL reports.

"You do not learn to become a prince, it's something that you must feel," Prince Laurent said.

Another student asked him about his relationship with his elder brother, the king.

"We are brothers and we are very different," the Prince responded. "I do not see him as a king but as he was before."
