I'm certain he is not "banned", though sometimes he does not seem "the brightest spark in the box"

Wikipedia has some info:
Prince Laurent of Belgium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As I understand it, Prince Laurent was in fact "banned," at least from the official events of National Day this year. He attended street party with his family, but I think that was as a private citizen and not in an official capacity. He was banned from National Day because King Albert told him to cancel a planned visit in Congo in March of this year, and Laurent ignored him and went anyway. But he still receives money from the government and performs official duties; he hasn't been cut off completely from the royal family.
