I think Philippe and Laurent are a second version of Baudouin and Albert in a way, incredibly different people but unswervingly loyal to each other as brothers.

If my memory doesn't fail me, the only person from the RF who spoke on Laurent's behalf in public during his hard times was Philippe, when he said that L will always be his brother no matter what.

Also, I get the feeling that Laurent never truly forgave his parents for abandoning him in a way (and he didn't get too close to Baudouin and Fabiola either, so he grew up with nannies and bodyguards), so he always felt resentment towards his father specially and that's why his attitude was so bad.

I found some nice gifs of Kathy Pauwels from VTM presenting a birthday cake to Prince Laurent:

One ~ Two ~ Three ~ Four ~ Five ~ Six

On gifs four, five and six you can get a glimpse of the outside of Laurent and Claire's house.

I totally agree with you, Isabella Park


Prince Laurent and Princess Claire this evening, November 4, attended the Belgian premiere of 'Marina', the new movie of Belgian director Stijn Coninx in Genk. The story of the movie is based on the youth of singer Rocco Granata.

Well the prince has improved lately, lets hope it will continue.

Did the duke also meet the new king and queen?

It was the 95th anniversary of the end of WWI, hopefully the duke will be able to be there in 5 years too.

The children are growing so quickly! And Princess Louise looks very much like her mother.

Laurent is virtually taking his brother's place when Philippe can't or won't make an appareance, something like this speaks volumes about the trust the King has on his younger brother.

And by the looks of it, Laurent is set on not letting him down :)

I hope so leidi. Not only would I love to see Laurent turn his image around, but Philippe is going to need all the help he can get!

Despite the differences, I believe that Prince Laurent will do his best representing his brother and the Belgian royal family.

Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh Prince Laurent Of
Does anyone know why it looks like they are stopping the DoE from falling? I can't imagine a world without him, it makes me sad just to think about it but he just doesn't look very good in these pictures. Too bad him and QEII can't retire to Balmoral and enjoy their golden years together.

To me, it looks like he was about to miss the chair, so Laurent and the others grabbed him before he fell. I could be wrong of course, but looking at where the chair is compared to where Phillip was, that's what I think is going on.

At least I hope so.

The Duke of Edinburgh seems to have a mind that is just as sharp as it ever was, but his body is betraying him by conforming to the merciless aging process.

I imagine it's terribly frustrating for him and for everyone that it eventually happens to.
