This Monday, many crowned heads had made the trip to attend the funeral of Queen Elizabeth, which occurred on September 8 at the age of 96. Our sovereigns, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde were seen in the crowd. The brother of the King of the Belgians, Prince Laurent, explained why he did not wish to participate.
“There are so many ordinary people there, so-called officials who take themselves seriously and people with excessive ambition who have done everything to show off that I preferred not to impose myself ”, justified Prince Laurent, absent from the world event broadcast on television. The youngest son of Paola and Albert, denounces in the Last Hour the political recovery of the funeral. And to complete: “I also think that the Queen would not have appreciated. It’s a disgrace this case, “ he adds.
Prince Laurent also clarified that he is still subject to travel restrictions and that before each trip, he must request authorization. And Prince Laurent to reconsider this decision: “I find it surreal, if I have to go see a cousin head of state, I have to ask for permission too. 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!”.
