Prince Laurent gave an interview over the phone. (In Dutch)

Main points:
- HRH Princess Claire stayed home from "King's Feast/Koningsdag/Fête du Roi" because one of the kids fell down the stairs and needed 4 stitches.
- The Princely family has a new (Dutch speaking) nanny.
- HRH Princess Louise, HRH Prince Nicolas and HRH Prince Aymeric speak French, Dutch, English and Spanish. They learned English and Spanish from their previous nannie.
- TRH Prince Laurent and Princess Claire want their kids to learn at least 2 exotic languages, he is thinking of Chinese and Arabic.
- HRH Princess Louise, HRH Prince Nicolas and HRH Prince Aymeric are learning to draw by a cartoonist.
- HRH Princess Louise, HRH Prince Nicolas and HRH Prince Aymeric will learn to play an instrument by their nanny.
- HRH Princess Louise loves K3. She sings their songs and she and HRH Prince Laurent attended a musical of K3.

It is wise on part of Prince Laurent and Princess Claire to give their children an opportunity to master different languages. Being multilingual will definitely help their children to better appreciate various cultures as well as secure good places of employment.

Prince Laurent IMO is definitively is an eccentric person to put it mildly. It is not the first nor I think the last time that he will demonstrate it to all i.e.wanting a home in Guinée. Not only a dangerous place but also rife with corruption and strife. Aren´t there enough beautiful and safer places in the whole world to have a summer home? I can´t immagine how his lovely wife Claire puts up with his many fantasies.She seems to be a level headed person.

I am sorry to hear that one of the kids injured themselves and that is why the Princess stayed home. I must admit that "unable to find someone to watch the kids" sounded a little strange to me. Hopefully, this clears up a lot of confusion and rumors.

In regards to Laurent and his eccentric personality. Perhaps they (Claire and Laurent) balance each other out. I have a friend who is very cool, level headed and disciplined and her husband to put it mildly is not. He is a good guy,but would drive me CRAZY but they appear to work. Hopefully Laurent and Claire are the same. I do like Claire!

I'll post a link to the article about this house. It isn't a house for Prince Laurent. The Prince wants to finance agricultural projects and social housing projects in Guinea.

Here are some pics of it:

Prince Laurent presents the first song on Studio Brussel radio presenters
into the glass house, at the start of the yearly charity action 'Music for
Life' in the center of Gent, Friday 18 December 2009. Three radio
presenters will live inside the glass house until 24 December, playing
request songs that the listeners of StuBru can 'buy' to support this
year's Red Cross campaign to stop Malaria.

What I like Princess Claire on the contrary of Princess Mathilde often doesn't go to the hairdresser for an official event . She is natural and I appréciate.

On Dutch television (SBS6 Shownews) it was said tonight that Prince Laurent and Princess Claire are going to separate and that this will be announced shortly by the Belgian Royal Court.
The cause of the separation seems to be the difficult character of the Prince.
It was also said that all major Belgian news organisations know that a princely separation will be forthcoming.
I feel for Claire and her children....

Hendrik, are these reliable sources? That would be very sad news indeed.

If we listened to the medias, some months ago Prince Laurent was divorcing from Claire in order to convert to Islam and marry another woman...
