It's so nice to see a young lady of 20 years acting refined. Compare her to Charlotte Casiraghi and the Euro crowd which she runs aroung with.
Astrid and Lorenz should be commended for raising such a beautiful daughter.

I really admire Maria Laura. She just seems like a hard working polite young woman. And we are very similar in age (I turn 20 on saturday)

According to the site, Maria-Laura will continue her studies in Paris. She will be registered in the third year on the National Institute of the Languages and Oriental Civilizations.

Maria-Laura has very strong features, and looked a bit like an 'ugly duckling' through her teens. But going away to University seems to have given her confidence and to learn how to make the best of what she has.

I wish her well for her next 20 years!

I think Maria-Laura has become such an elegant young woman. I always enjoy reading about her. I agree with PamK. Her parents must be very proud of her.

Re: Great photo of Pss Maria-Laura

Great photo. Pss Maria-Laura resembles her grandmother and her mother Pss Astrid a lot. Great to hear abt her course of study.

According to 'Het Laatste Nieuws' a certain Belkhir Sayah who lives in Marseille is sending messages to the house of Prince Laurent & Princess Astrid in which he announces his new movie about the disappearance of dinosaurs. He claims that Princess Maria Laura and Princess Sayako of Japan will play in the movie. According to the palace no official complaint had been made yet but they are looking into what legal possibilities they have,

Yeah, she was by accident discovered by the camera crew of a Belgian television chain. She doesn't like the spotlights I think, as all the childern of Astrid and Lorenz but indeed nice to see her and to hear her speak. Her dutch is very good.

Oh yes, it is so refreshing and animating to see a "new" Royal face, and such a beautiful one.

Princess Maria Laura is currently doing a internship of 4 months at the Permanent Mission of Belgium to the United Nations in New York. There is a chance that the princess will get a permanent job there after this is finished.
