The brother of King Philippe takes the opportunity to deplore the travel restrictions to which he must submit when he wants to meet foreign heads of state. Indeed, the prince can only meet foreign officials if he has the agreement of the government.
“I find it surreal, if I have to go see a cousin head of state, I have to ask for permission too,” reproaches Prince Laurent. “Same for going to see my first cousin in Luxembourg or my godmother who lives in Lausanne. I have to ask for an agreement to go to Switzerland, it’s crazy! “.
