This week's edition of the flemish magazine Dag Allemaal has an article about Filip & Mathilde's home with beautiful pictures of Laken Castle and its gardens.
It has a picture of the playhouse that I didn't see before and one of the pool that is inside the greenhouses.
I don't have a scanner and can't find them online...

I found another picture of the swimming pool, I imagine its one of the features of Laeken castle most cherished by the royal youngsters. Like having your own Center Park pool.

The swimming pool is located in a glass/steel building that was erected by Leopold II., not as swimming pool but as church with space for 800 persons. This iron church was designed by Alphonse Balat, who also planned the green houses. It never really served as church and was used as greenhouse later, the swimming pool was installed during the 80ties or 90ties iirc.

Interior designer Axel Vervoordt worked on different belgian royal residences together with Queen Paola.
In his book are some pictures of the interior of Laken
Axel Vervoordt - Armelle Baron, Christian Sarramon - Google Boeken
I particularly like the 30's appartment which he created with art deco furniture he found in the palace.
