Philippe was a handsome young man with a beautiful head of hair. In his salad days he was quite dishy. Just Google Philippe at 30.

Poor Laurent never seemed to enjoy salad days...at any age ..sad:

Indeed. Thank you for serving us hot tea lol. The young Philippe is handsome, yes. And the Philippe with beard looks better. What happened now though?

Laurent? No comment

If Laurent was so averse to being a working royal and performing a few annual duties he should have renounced his succession rights upon marriage and got a job for himself and he'd have lived very quietly and modestly with his wife and kids.Instead he behaves like an overpaid royal bull in a china shop .The Belgian RF would work just as well without him as a semi working royal .

Like the old saying goes 'You can't have your cake and eat it'

To me he mainly comes across as extremely entitled. He does seem to think that he deserves everything he pleases just because he was born a prince. He doesn't seem to be aware of the responisibility that comes with being given much (in his case both a prominent place in society and money).

Nonetheless, within his privileged life and despite his entitlement, he is contributing in his own limited way in areas that he is passionate about.

Well, Laurent certainly doesn't help himself! I agree that he has always come across as rude and arrogant as well as narrow-minded to me.

I think apart from this rudeness and misdemeanor, have somebody met Laurent in person? Is he warm and kind?

Maybe this rudeness is just a facade. What do you all think?

For what I've seen through videos he is very warm and kind to normal people and people love him back for that, cause they don't feel the class distance when he is around. However he has problems with autorithy, he does not seem to able to accept rules and restrictions from other people. He always takes them personally.

I see this is a nice observation though. Some people are like this and maybe for a Prince it is not something we usually see since we only know him from the footages we see and the articles written about them.

But yeah knowing that his relationship with Claire and his children is going well, I think he might have this warm and kind personality inside him.
