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.

Wasn't Amedeos and his siblings inclusion in the Order of Succession because it was feared that Philippe would never marry?

Yes, basically this is the main reason for the change of the succession rules back in 1991.

I agree, King Baudouin did not want to see Laurent King of the Belgians...

14 years later Prince Amadeo may have a private life being not on the succession list anymore.

As it was posted in anothe thread (in the Romanian forum), originally it was planned that also Princess Astrid attended with Lorenz, but eventually couldn't go due to a medical condition.

Thank you for the info!
I've heard about Astrid's medical condition for a while, seems like she gets sick often or is it just my impression?

Princess Astrid and Princess Anne attended the celebrations marking the centenary of the death of Edith Cavell in Uccle, Brussels today, October 12.

"The British nurse Edith Cavell was killed hundred years ago by German during WWI. Edith Cavell is celebrated for saving the lives of soldiers from both sides without discrimination and in helping some 200 Allied soldiers escaped from German-occupied Belgium during the First World War, for which she was arrested. She was subsequently court-martialled, found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. Despite international pressure for mercy, she was shot by a German firing squad. Her execution received worldwide condemnation and extensive press coverage"

A report from the Daily Telegraph:

Edith Cavell 100 years on: Heroine WW1 nurse receives royal commemoration - Telegraph

Here is a link to an image of the Edith Cavell Memorial outside Norwich Cathedral, which most locals are familiar with, so it is nice to see the modern sculpture unveiled yesterday:

Prince Lorenz told on TV that he travelled with each of his Children.

When he travelled with Amedeo , he told his father that he was in love with Lilli.

A good idea for parents to travel with each Child to know them better.

Prince laurent came with one of his twins to the car Exhibiton, the other twin being not so interested with Car mechanics.
