Loyalty to Claire
Once again comes rumours that Princess Claire is separating from Prince Laurent, the enfant terrible of the royal family of Belgium. And just in time for Valentine's Day too - have the gossips no shame?
Thankfully, the elegant Italian-born Queen Paola had joined her Anglo-Belgian surveyor daughter-in-law, the former Claire Coombs, in yet another public royal event earlier in the week. The 6ish Claire, in the middle of the Enneagram head centre, must appreciate this show of loyalty. Regardless of the veracity of the rumours, the young mother of three has found her in-laws particularly helpful in easing her into royal public life. The Queen knows what it is like to marry the second son, having done the same in the late 50s! King Albert II lived life to the fullest - and fastest! - before unexpectedly succeeding his pious brother, Baudouin I.
