Belvedere and Stuyvenberg

Would anyone know where exactly these castles are located? Also the castle of Fenffe. Is this the weekend retreat of CP Philippe and his family now? Thank you.

Philippe & Mathilde live in the castle of Laeken, in the park of Laeken in Laeken (Brussels). It's very simple :)

Astrid and her family live in a newly built house, villa Schonenberg. You can see pictures of it in this thread.

the castles of Laeken, Stuyvenberg (Fabiola), Schonenberg (Astrid) and the Belvédère (King & queen) are all located on a very large private royal domaine. So they're not far from each other.

Laurent lives in Tervuren, a community close to Brussels.

The castles in Ciergnon and Fenffe are used by the king and his children, usually in the weekends.

After their marriage, Lorenz and Astrid moved to Switzerland, if I recall correctly in Basel, where Lorenz worked. Then in 1993, when her father became King, they moved back to Belgium and settled at Villa Schonenberg.

Thank you, but it's written that Villa Schonenberg is built in 2009? Or maybe rebuilt than? :)

It is a recently built mansion indeed, but I don't think so recently; I don't know when it has been built exactly, but surely in 2004 it was already there, as Prince Amedeo's 18th birthday on 21 February 2004 were taken at Villa Schonenberg (you can see the Villa in the background this picture).

Astrid and Lorenz had rented a villa in Brussels after moving back to Belgium and before settling at Villa Schonenberg. At least that´s what I read somewhere.

In the TV programs about the new King Philippe it was said that during his bachelor years (after studying at Stanford and befor his marriage), he had an appartment in the Royal Palace in Brussels.
After their mariage, Philippe and Mathilde lived in a small appartment in the Castle of Laeken and later moved to the bigger appartment where they live now.

Do Philippe and Mathilde live just with the kids in Laeken? no other member of the RF lives there?

And was Philippe that desperate to get out of his parents' house that he went to the huge and cold Royal Palace?
