Normally they are very well organized; with Filip and Mathilde in the middle, Elisabeth and Gabriel on either side and Emmanuel with Elisabeth and Eleonore with Gabriel. This is probably some kind of transition phase in which that original plan no longer is as needed as the younger kids can fend for themselves, so some rearranging might be in order.

A well-written article from Vanitatis about Princess Claire's commendable composure.

The Belgian Court often gives the impression they are in need of a functional reorganization. Remember the chaos at Queen Fabiola's funeral, which really could be categorized as an event able to be planned years in advance, with blueprints, repeated rehearsals and updates.

And also the unnecessary and tardy confusion the Belgian Court caused over the titles and style of Prince Amedeo of Belgium wife Elisabetta von Wolkenstein which went on for years!

Pic 1: The seating order like this year IF Laurent didn´t take away his sister´s chair.
Pic 2: I guess this was from a year he was the only member of the RF except the royal couple and the children to take part so there was no more space needed. They will have hardly seperated him from the rest of the family... Unluckily it turned out to be looking like a "box".
But seriously, would you, if you were him, mind sitting there for 2 hours on a gildet Regency throne-like chair?! I definitely would not!


After all his antics, the chair-incident, the telephone-incident and, what I personally found the worst because it was such an aggressive, brutal and public demonstration of how much he disrespects the King and Queen, the leaving before the royal couple, what the King really has to do right now is, brother or not, not to invite the little boy for next year´s parade, unless he truely excused himself!

Can you post a translation link with articles that are not in English in future and heads up Vanitatis is not the most credible source of news
