 Reports in Belgium said Prince Laurent’s alleged suicide attempt had been covered up by the royal family
 Claimed the 50-year-old prince was taken to see a psychiatrist on March 21
 Yesterday the royal household continued to deny the story



The King of Belgium’s younger brother tried to kill himself during a bout of depression last month, it was claimed yesterday.
 
Reports in Belgium said Prince Laurent’s suicide attempt had been covered up by the royal family as an attack of pneumonia.
 
The La Capitale newspaper referred to 'persistent rumours' that the 50-year-old prince was on March 21 rushed first to see a psychiatrist in a Brussels hospital before being moved to intensive care, where he was placed in an artificial coma. He was discharged this week.
 
Publications in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking northern half of the country where the royal family is not popular, say Laurent suffers from a form of depression, possibly manic depression.
 
Yesterday the royal household continued to deny the story

Prince Laurent has accepted a mission as goodwill ambassador for the FAO, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, confirms a spokesperson for the Belgian Royal Family.

The news comes shortly after Prince Laurent’s emergency hospitalisation in Brussels on March 21. The Prince awoke from a coma on April 8, and was released the following day. If his health permits, the prince will travel to Rome for four days at the end of June as part of his new mission.

The FAO is a UN agency that is committed to social and economic progress for all, and proper management of the world’s natural resources.

King Filip has accepted PM Elio Di Rupo's resignation

Belgium's federal Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo tendered the resignation of his six-party coalition government to King Filip at the royal palace in Brussels on Monday

The palace has let it be known that the king has accepted his premier's resignation following Sunday's general election.

It was shortly after 11am that the prime minister arrived at the royal palace to tender his government's resignation, the custom in Belgium on the day after the general election.

At 12:08 the palace released a communique announcing that King Filip had accepted the resignation.

Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo's team stays on in the job until a new government can be sworn in.

 The outgoing government will manage affairs already in course, but cannot start any new initiatives.

Following his meeting with the Prime Minister King Filip is now free to start taking political soundings about the best way ahead.

The king will speak with political leaders to learn who they believe he should appoint to start the government formation process.

It is widely accepted that King Filip will first appoint an informateur whose job it will be to find out who is best placed to become formateur and form the next federal government.

An informateur could be in the job within days, but last time round Belgium did break the record for the longest government formation talks in the entire world.

^Beautiful bride with the most important accessory; a perfectly happy and natural smile.  Love her understated makeup. 

There's always an 'however' and I do agree that the neckline lace could've been nixed.  If I hold up my hand and have that a clean line instead of more lace, it's a tad more regal but what the heck, the swiss dotting is refreshing!

^Bea looks great.  Maybe it's time for taking on sunglasses as a regular accessory.  It upgrades her considerably.
