Laurent and Claire engagements

Thank you for these lovely photo's. I believe this gala was not mentioned on the official website of the Belgian RF. I have the impression that the diary mentions most if not all official engagements of the King and Queen, Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde, Princess Astrid and Queen Fabiola. However, I think the engagements of Laurent and Claire are not always mentioned. It is not the first time I see pictures or reports of functions they attended that were not announced beforehand. Anyone knows why? Thank you.

Maybe this was in some way a private visit?

Laurent & Claire at the Greek state visit to Belgium. I think her outfit comes from Mlle Lucien. Does anyone know more about it?

I think you are right. I found this picture of one of their other designs, and it appears to be a similar fabric, but of a different colour. Were they the one's that designed the 'cowboy' attire that Claire wore at Belgium's National Day?

Thank you very much for the photos. I have looked at every possible photo agency to see if I could find any bigger ones, but I couldn't find any. :( I absolutely love this green dress. I think it is one of the nicest one's Claire has worn, and from what I can see of the shoes, I love them as well.

You're both right I think. I read somewhere that Claire had ordered a galadress at Mademoiselle Lucien, this must be it. I like it very much I must say. Mlle Lucien = the two designers who made her cowboy outfit.

Wonderful photos. (First off, I love Claire's green gown!) And, without all of the weight Laurent wasn't too bad, now was he??? But, regardless of the weight he looks like a very caring husband and Claire appears to be as crazy about him as he is about her. :)

in the pictures posted of laurent during his younger years. in the second picture, with a side view of laurent, doesn't it remind one of how his nephew, prince amadeo looks like today?

March 23, 2005: Prince Laurent and Princess Claire attended the inauguration of the "Jazzfontein" at Tervuren. The "Jazzfontein" had nine African water animals.

Thank you pdas for the photos. I don't know if it's my eyes, but in those photos, Claire seems to have a slight resemblance to Paola. Am I seeing things? Maybe it's her new haircut. I really like her jacket, but I think Laurent needs to get rid of his. I really don't like the colour.
