Laurent gave an interview to the Walloon newspaper 'La Derniere Heure'.

Les enfants du prince Laurent apprennent l’arabe ! - DH.be

Prins Laurent: "Sinds mijn coma praat ik met de doden" - HLN.be

- The prince is learning the arab language, as are his children - who can recite the alphabet. He is fascinated by the language but adds that he absolutely did not convert to Islam. He reads the Qur'an as it help him with learning the language.

- Since he was in a coma in March he speaks with the dead. More precisely with three deceased spiritual anscestors, of whom he does not want to give the names. He is in touch with them every day, talks to them. They also answer but not with words but with gestures or signals. He adds: ' I understand that people may think it is idiotic, but it is just the way it is'.

At this Fair a Journalist asked Prince Laurent to read a sentence of the Arab language. He could not , I think it was bienvenue Monseigneur.
He said then that the caligraphy was not correct.....
It is fine that the whole family attend.
I think Laurent is doing that because if his brother the King comes with his whole family , they need a huge Security and He is free !

Laurent also said he had back problems and had to go to the hospital, that's why he couldn't go to the remembrance mass for the deceased members of the family.

when the prince left the prince went to talk to a photographer and an assistant. He pointed to the rasta hairstyle of the assistant and asked if the assistant smoked weed. When the assistant said that he wasn't into that, the prince explained that people with rasta hair style often do smoke weed. It is handy when making music.

There is a very defined role for each sibling now: Philippe is the Head of State, does all the politic/diplomatic stuff, Astrid works the economic missions and Laurent is the one who works on environmental projects and cultural events.

I like it.

So apparently the kids speak Flemish as well? Because there were rumors that they didn't because they were going to a French or English school?

The children wisely didn't say a word (on camera), so that is still a mystery. Only Laurent and Claire spoke.

But they seemingly understood everything that was said to them in Flemish or at least that was my impression
