Woah, Laurent is everywhere these days: military, cultural, environmental acts
So far he has done everything right, I guess Philippe's confidence in him has made Laurent act like a real prince.

Fair point. Also, I guess there are not that many other members of the family that can support the King and Queen in their duties these days.

Why was Queen Paola not there for her own Foundation ?
Answer of VTM , King Albert II and Queen Paola definitely show they have nothing to do anymore in Belgium.

I think everyone was waiting for Astrid to have more acts than Laurent

Yes, that is strange...that Astrid is not playing a bigger role. Does anyone know why this would be? It was assumed that when Phillipe became king, she would step up as well. Especially since Laurent seemed unwilling/unable to support the new king, because of his difficult life.

I completely agree. One of the best things about Philippe becoming king is that everyone who made fun of him, questioned his intelligence and questioned his ability while he was Duc de Brabant is looking rather foolish now.
I love it.

I completely agree. King Philippe does exactly what his brother needed to regain self-estim. He trusts him a lot and prince Laurent seems to repay him well while representing him. Well done.

Exactly, he's proven himself not only to be a capable King but also a caring human being that tries to manage his family as well as he can

yep, i agree too, i know we don't do this, but otherwise K.Philippe for me would be a clear nomination for King-of-the-Year

Prince Laurent is still good for some fun, after some questions of a young journalist about the movie. She tiold him that the director of the movie wanted to direct a movie with the prince. The prince reacted surprised: ' with me?' and added:' with you sweetheart' . He took her head in his hands, turned her face to some other people and exclaimed: ' isn't she a dear' to which he added: 'a pretty girl, no?' and walked away.

Good old Laurent, I hope he will never change.
