I believe she is a colonel in the Army Medical Corps. Please correct me if I'm wrong

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.
