I don't understand why Prince Lorenz was the only Royal at the Concert and Dinner in Romania. I thought a lot of German Royals would attend too. Did they cancel ??
Queen Anne seems to have no contact anymore with her Brothers Bourbon Parme.

I have to say that Astrid and Lorenz are wonderful representatives for Belgium. The King is very lucky to have them "working" on his (and the country's) behalf. So nice to see them out.

Nice to see them all together. Astrid Marriet and Laurentien often attended this event together, but it is nice to see Astrid's daughter-in-law too. Though as she as not listed in the announcement of the palace, it still doesn't make clear how we should call her. PPE sticks to Elisabetta Rosboch von Wolkenstein.

The award went to the Athens Biennale and the Visual Culture Research Center from Kiev.

An article in 'Story' this week about princess Astrid who supposedly wants to have more official duties and who feels somewhat sidelinedby her brother. Two weeks ago an article of a simular nature appeared in a Francophone newspaper.

They also speculate that the princess is the only one of the siblings who has a good relationship with her parents and that the princess may be suffering from the empty-nest syndrom now 4 of 5 of her children left her house.

Prinses Astrid wil graag meer taken - HLN.be

The Walloon RTL channel even mentioned that the princess is depressed about the matter:
La princesse Astrid serait déprimée car son frère ne lui donne pas assez de travail - RTL Info

Edit: apparently the story comes from Mario Danneels, who mentions 'sources close to the palace'.

I liked the Princess Astrid had more official acts. Astrid does a good job in the royal household and deserves to have more work.

Prince Lorenz of Belgium visits Romania on 11-12th September. He will be the guest of crown princess Margarita and prince Radu at the Elisabeta Palace and Peleș Castle.

Friday, 11 September, their royal highnesses will take part at 19.30 at the Annual Gala of the national Red Cross Society, as well as the opening of the first International Festival of First Aid in Romania in Bucharest.
Saturday, 12 September, during the morning, Prince Lorenz will plant a tree, which will bear his name in the garden of the Memorial trees at the garden of the Elisabeta Palace.
During the same day, at 19, Prince Lorenz receives from crown princess Margarita on behalf of His Majesty King Michael I the Order of the Crown in the grade of Grand Cross in a ceremony to be held in the Hall of Honor of the Peleș Castle. After the ceremony, Crown Princess Margarita and Prince Radu host a dinner in honor of the high guest at the Peleș Castle. Princess Maria will be present at the events.

Princess Astrid and her family (husband and children) have always impressed me as an above-average collateral branch of a royal house. Amedeo for example had an education comparable to that of a crown prince, which is somewhat rare for someone who was so far down in the line of succession.

In any case, I once wrote in one of the TRF forums that I felt Astrid would make a better regent than Queen Mathilde in the unlikely scenario that princess Elisabeth succeeds to the throne before she is 18. At the time, I was much criticized for that opinion, but I still stand by what I said.

Well, after all Amedeo has not been so much far down in the line of succession until he was at least 15; when Elisabeth was born he was still the third in the line of succession, after Philippe and Astrid. This may explain the choices about his education.
