where do they live?

Marie-Caroline 07-01-2005 07:40 AM

Belvedere and Stuyvenberg
 
Would anyone know where exactly these castles are located? Also the castle of Fenffe. Is this the weekend retreat of CP Philippe and his family now? Thank you.

were did philippe live before his marrige

Philippe & Mathilde live in the castle of Laeken, in the park of Laeken in Laeken (Brussels). It's very simple :)

Astrid and her family live in a newly built house, villa Schonenberg. You can see pictures of it in this thread.

the castles of Laeken, Stuyvenberg (Fabiola), Schonenberg (Astrid) and the Belvédère (King & queen) are all located on a very large private royal domaine. So they're not far from each other.

Laurent lives in Tervuren, a community close to Brussels.

The castles in Ciergnon and Fenffe are used by the king and his children, usually in the weekends.

When he moved out of his parents's home (Belvedere), he went to live at the castle of Laeken - which is traditionnally the home of the reigning king and his wife. But when Albert II became king, he decided to stay at the Belvedere because it has been his home ever since Paola and he got married.

where did Princess Astrid & family live before villa Schonenberg?

MAfan 11-07-2011 05:18 PM

After their marriage, Lorenz and Astrid moved to Switzerland, if I recall correctly in Basel, where Lorenz worked. Then in 1993, when her father became King, they moved back to Belgium and settled at Villa Schonenberg.

Blue_ 11-09-2011 03:45 PM

Thank you, but it's written that Villa Schonenberg is built in 2009? Or maybe rebuilt than? :)

MAfan 11-09-2011 07:56 PM

It is a recently built mansion indeed, but I don't think so recently; I don't know when it has been built exactly, but surely in 2004 it was already there, as Prince Amedeo's 18th birthday on 21 February 2004 were taken at Villa Schonenberg (you can see the Villa in the background this picture).

Blue_ 11-10-2011 08:53 AM

Indeed :), so it was an error
But look at this video, there it certainly not Schonenberg... (when the kids come back from school)

Astrid and Lorenz had rented a villa in Brussels after moving back to Belgium and before settling at Villa Schonenberg. At least that´s what I read somewhere.

In the TV programs about the new King Philippe it was said that during his bachelor years (after studying at Stanford and befor his marriage), he had an appartment in the Royal Palace in Brussels.
After their mariage, Philippe and Mathilde lived in a small appartment in the Castle of Laeken and later moved to the bigger appartment where they live now.

leidi 07-26-2013 03:11 AM

Do Philippe and Mathilde live just with the kids in Laeken? no other member of the RF lives there?

And was Philippe that desperate to get out of his parents' house that he went to the huge and cold Royal Palace? :biggrin:
