Here is a blog of a journalist who accompanied the princes to Thailand.
There is also an interview with the prince.

It's in French, so you should use a translator, if necessary...

The Flemish TV program Royalty has now a Facebook page and twitter account.

You can see there some video clips from the recent economic mission.
