For several months, rumors have been circulating that the royal couple would be separated and would no longer live together.
A journalist specializing in the royal family, Joëlle Vanden Houden, assures this Wednesday in the magazine Humo that Prince Laurent would live alone in Tervuren and that Claire would have returned to live with her parents, in Chaumont-Gistoux. According to them, these rumors are “on everyone’s lips in Tervuren and Chaumont-Gistoux”.“These allegations come from Laurent’s neighbors and people with knowledge of the case”, she specifies. Another sign that maintains this hypothesis: the fact that Laurent and Claire have not appeared together since February 2020.
Contacted by 7/7, Prince Laurent firmly denies: “I cannot say anything about it, because there is nothing to say. We don’t live apart, that’s not true. I don’t know where it all comes from, and I’m not interested either.”
