Yesterday, June 28, Prince Laurent viewed the project RELIOS by Caroline Lepot. Caroline Lepot received the Young People Award during the ceremony of the Belgian Prize for Energy and the Environment 2016 for her project. RELIOS is a solar collector that makes it possible to produce hot water, it's made of recycled material.

Radio station 'Studio Brussel' called with prince Laurent. They had judo player Dirk van Tichelt in their studio, who won a bronze medal in the Rio Olympics. Van Tichelt claimed that he was disappointed that the palace did not congratulate him yet with his medal.

The radio host thought it was a great idea to not call the palace but prince Laurent. After they first got the voice mail of Villa Clémentine, with the second try Prince Laurent actually answered the phone.

The surprised prince wondered why they called him, after which Van Tichelt explained the 'issue'. The prince sensibly asked him to call him the next day (without the radio I suppose) and asked him to text his coordinates so they could arrange a personal meeting.

Prince Laurent wants to retrieve 45 million Euros from the Libyan government, money which he (his company?) once invested in a forestation project which never materialized. He has petitioned to confisquate the Airbus of the late colonel Khadaffi which is stored in Paris. Experts claim it is unlikely he will retrieve his money.

Always alone.
No official Duty for Princess Claire ! (comparing Princess Laurentien)
They send often Princess Lea , a minor Royal who likes that very much.

Yes, I would like to see P Claire, I appreciated her a lot, I read that P Astrid complainted that she had almost no more work.
It is a shame we could not see these two princesses, they were very present at the times of King Albert.

According to Het Nieuwsblad, prince Laurent uses his new twitter account to highlight the events he visits. Apparently the agenda and social media of the royal palace does not cover them, which leaves the impression that he does not attend anything at all.

The palace website shows zero events after July 21st, while his own account shows seven of them. That is why last year there was a large difference in the official amount of public duties, as listed by the palace (36) and as listed by himself (69).

The Belgian Royal Court is known to be, let's say "disorganized", so it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't keep track of all events attended by members of the Royal Family.

Having said that, it wouldn't surprise me either if Laurent counted a few private events as public engagements on his twitter account.

I don't know what happened, but an independant royal agenda and an independant way of communicating seems messy at the very least. The Dutch court does the same though, not everything for Constantijn and Laurentien is listed either. I have do not know the reason, if it is considered a private hobby or because they want to focus on the core group.

King Filip has professionalized the court greatly these last years, but obviously not the entire family is happy with all changes. The press is writing about trouble between Filip and his parents, between Filip and Astrid and between Filip and Laurent. But then, this is a tradition with the Belgian Coburgs.

The last time of the whole gathering of the Royal Family was Queen Fabiola's Funerals.

No show up at our National Day, or Prince Laurent's attitude were Childish.

Marengo , this is not a tradition with the Belgian Cobourgs. It is alas worse.

It can't be much worse than between Leopold II and his daughters, maria-olivia . At least everybody is keeping their mouths shut for now, which is good.
