I was wondering that too; I think he has lost some weight indeed.

It looks as if they've shared their duties. According to the calendar Claire and Laurent had been scheduled to attend yesterday's and today's event together, but they did not.


Prince Laurent attended the Musique Royale des Guides Concert at the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels on November 30, 2012.

That could be an explanation

Today the Belgian press reported that prince Laurent was in touch with Angolan officials, without the Belgian government being informed about this.

Quote:
Reports that Prince Laurent set up projects in the African country of Angola without informing the government have once again put the cat among the pigeons. Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo has threatened to take away the prince's allowance.
Prince Laurent's allowance is worth 300,000 euros each and every year.

It was in the spring of 2011 that the enfant terrible of the Belgian royal house last caused a stir. Without informing the government Prince Laurent met with rebels fighting the regime of Col Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. The prince also supported projects in Congo and signed business deals with President Kabila's regime.

His lawyers report that the story is untrue:
Advocaten: (in Dutch only).

The prime minister responded that IF the prince did break the guidelines he received in 2011, he willlose his dotation: http://www.dhnet.be/people/familles-...gagements.html (in French only).

If Prince Laurent did participate in Angolan projects, it would be a clear display of his shortsightedness. Prince Laurent encountered enough scandals to learn a thing or two and make a better judgement. Prime Minister Di Rupo's ardour to swiftly and severely punish is surprising though. What is going on in the kingdom of Belgium?

I hope the story is not true. As long as Laurent remaining a Prince of Belgium who receives annual allowance, he must pretty much do as the Government says. Doing something behind their back would be simply unacceptable.
