Just Philippe/Mathilde and their children,King Albert and Queen Paola live at Chateau du Belvédère.
Queen Fabiola resides at Château du Stuyvenberg.

Not sure where Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz reside.

Astrid and Lorenz live at Villa Schonenberg, which is near to the Castle of Stuyvenberg.

I attach a map of the park of Laeken, where you can see where the four royal residences are exactly.

Yes, Philippe and Mathilde and their family occupy Laeken Palace. Other members of the royal family have their own residences. His parents have always lived at the Belvedere Palace even though it is usual for Belgian monarchs to live at Laeken.
Why do you find it so odd that a young, well educated bachelor prince would have wanted his own apartment in the capital? It would seem an extremely normal and usual thing for a young man to want to do. Not an act of desperation at all.
