Lyonnaise, you did post the picture correctly according to the url in the image's Properties :). It happens that the link doesn't connect sometimes because of a web site error. It's such a beautiful picture of them. I posted it with your description of it as an attachment instead.

From Rexfeatures.com

Here's Claire feeding Laurent some cotton-candy.

Prince Laurent And Princess Claire are on vacation in Sardinia with their friends, Prince Charles and Princess Camilla of Bourbon-Siciles, the Duke and Duchess of Calabria. I looked to see if there's at least a web site that have some of those pictures, and didn't find any. It would be nice if there would be some of the Duke's and Duchess' new daughter...she must be so cute. That's an exerpt from www.dhnet.be,

09/08/2003 Prince Laurent, whom one knows large amateur of Italy and his gastronomy, invited his Claire wife for holidays in Sardinia. The princely couple remains over there with princes Charles and Camilla of Bourbon-Siciles, duke and duchess of Calabria. Close friends of the Prince, who had gone to their marriage in 1998 to Monaco. Aboard princely yacht, they could be devoted to the joys of bronzing, but Laurent and Claire also tasted with the feelings of the jet-ski.

Very glamorous picture of Princess Claire! How come we never saw these pictures at the time of the state visit?

Hope Claire will be as glamorous in pregnancy as she is here!

Hurtig baby til Claire og Laurent - 04.09.03

Blot en uge efter at kronprinsesse Mathilde, 30, nedkom med prins Gabriel, er en ny, kongelig baby på vej i Belgien.

»Prins Laurent og prinsesse Claire har den store lykke at meddele, at de venter et barn. Fødslen finder sted i februar...«. Sådan lød det blandt andet i en officiel meddelelse fra det belgiske hof i sidste uge.

De vordende forældre må siges at have været hurtige i vendingen.

Parret blev gift den 12. april 2003 i Bruxelles, og Claire er efter alle solemærker at dømme blevet gravid måneden efter.

Laurents og Claires baby bliver kong Alberts og dronning Paolas ottende barnebarn.

I really find Princess Claire one of the most gorgeous royals in the world.I have noticed that she dresses simply yet it still looks elegant because she is naturally beautiful.She does not wear heavy make-up.She has a nice complexion, body shape, her nose,eyes and mouth are very cute.. A very stunning princess

Getting married/settling down seems to have matured him. Also, maybe because of how much both his siblings do, he's felt more obligated to step up?
