Hi all!
A question out of curiosity: I have heard many times that Laurent has always been the 'enfant terrible' of the family but can anyone give me an example of his behaviour that proves this? (apart from his being fined for speeding, which, BTW runs in the family. LOL His father Albert also has a nice 'collection' of fines for speeding aboard his motorbike LOL)
It surprised me not to find a single picture of Laurent and Albert together when Laurent was growing up.
Thank you all in advance!
Martin

First of all there are pictures of Laurent and his father.
Laurent is a bit a special case because of his speeding (whereas Albert had the odd fine, Laurent has been caughts several times on a row, once making seven infractions on a row). He's always late (quite a contrast with the previous :)). In the past he was a real womanizer, and te opposite of other members of the RF who were rather serious, he likes to joke but sometimes he also takes things not serious enough. He's popular in Belgium (because of his humor), but also seen as uncapable.

Thank you so much, Cathérine! :) Are those pictures on this forum and if so, do you know where? I think I've looked everywhere but couldn't find any :( *sad*
Just between us :), re: the 'odd fine': My father is a diplomat and we were in Belgium in the 70s and 80s and they (diplomats) all knew when Albert (prince at the time) was fined. They even used to joke with him about it! (Albert has great sense of humour. :) :) )
Thank you for your answer!
Cheers!

Princess Claire was also present on this event.

This week there was also a gala dinner for the 10th anniversary for the prince Laurent foundation.

Priest Guy Gilbert was one of the persons present, like princess Léa and Edouard Vermeulen (of course :)).

Princess Claire wore a long red dress by Natan.

I don't know for the others, and I don't mean to offend anyone, but it's boring to me to read this kind of comments. Please, don't you think that we will know when there will be pics? The rest is mere speculation and I'm sure the parents have good reasons for not releasing photos.

What a beautiful photo of Claire! Can someone tell me about the jacket Laurent has on? Is this a "smoking jacket"? It looks medieval!

....and I submitted the message without saying "thanks" to Catherine!
