The Royal Palace has confirmed that Princess Astrid has some severe sleep problems and is currently taking some rest and undergoing a treatment. Astrid suffers from sleep problems for more than a decade now, but the problem has become more intense during the last weeks. Therefore she hasn't had any official events since February and is not expected to attend the Queen Elizabeth Competition as planned.

Princess Astrid is quite devoted to her role; I can imagine that the rest and treatment are long overdue.

ETA: Since she has been taking a leave of absence since February, why did the Palace only announce it now?

Maybe they though there would be speculation about why she didn't show up for the Queen Elizabeth Competition.
Hope she feels better soon

Can such a thing be treated? Apart from sleeping pills that have a limited effect as time goes by & the body gets more accustomed to them.

I was wondering where Princess Astrid of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria-Este was as I hadn't seen any duties of late.

I'm getting absolutely no news updates through my Google searches. Just wondering if perhaps we have a TRF member in Belgium who has possibly heard something.

I think in the article posted in post #511 it is mentioned that she is prescribed a period of rest before her trip to Argentina and Uruguay at the end of june, so i don't expect we'll see her in public before then?
