[size=18]Prince Laurent, younger brother of King Philippe, told a journalist ‘This is really starting to piss me off’ when quizzed about his business ventures[/size]

The Belgian king’s younger brother faces a dressing down from the country’s prime minister after demanding that politicians and the royal family “stop bugging” him over claims his business ventures are losing money.
The summons from the prime minister, Charles Michel, amid some concern for the stability of the monarchy, came after Prince Laurent, a sports car-loving 53-year-old, let off steam at a journalist who quizzed him over the financial health of his renewable energy interests.
“This is really starting to piss me off,” he said in remarks captured by a television camera. “If certain politicians would get off my back, if my family would get off my back, I could show you that these accounts are positive.”

Michel told the Belgian parliament, where often squabbling ranks of French- and Dutch-speakers look to the royal house and King Philippe to hold the country together, that the family’s enfant terrible had, not for the first time, gone too far.
Calling his language “totally inappropriate”, the premier said: “As a member of the royal family, the law says he must be reserved in his public statements.” Michel, who has yet to fix an appointment, would “remind him of the rules” and insist he show respect to the people’s elected representatives.
Last week, Michel reprimanded Laurent for meeting the prime minister of Sri Lanka without clearing it with the government. The prince has also been rebuked over expense claims and some parliamentarians want to cut his €300,000 ($320,000) annual allowance.
Philippe, who took the throne in 2013 when his father Albert abdicated, has caused few waves. But the behaviour of his former naval helicopter pilot brother has raised fears for the future of the monarchy.
“Laurent is slowly killing the royal house,” a Belgian official said, arguing the government must rein him in.
Royal correspondent Pierre De Vuyst told broadcaster RTL that Laurent was “going off the rails” by attacking politicians and his own brother. “That doesn’t seem very smart given a lot of people are against the royal family right now,” he said.
Philippe, 56, is the seventh king of the Belgians since the German prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg, uncle of Britain’s Queen Victoria, was installed in 1831 after independence from the Netherlands. Laurent, 12th in line today, has three children with his half-English wife Princess Claire.

Sri Lankan Prime Minister holds discussions with Prince Laurent of Belgium on Renewable Energy
Tue, Oct 18, 2016, 09:55 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Oct 18, Brussels: Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, who is currently in Belgium to hold high level discussions with the European Union to regain the GSP Plus tariff tax concession, met with Prince Laurent of Belgium at the Renewable Energy House in Brussels on Monday.

The Premier accompanied by his delegation held discussions with Prince Laurent on the generation and use of renewable energy.

During the discussions, Prince Laurent has said that he successfully overcame the challenges posed by the people of Belgium, who were more familiar with traditional methods, to transition towards renewable power generation.

Belgium, which currently utilizes nuclear power for its electricity generation, has focused its complete attention on the future of renewable energy.

Prince Laurent also said that the Renewable Energy House where the Sri Lankan delegation conducted discussions was powered by renewable energy.

The Renewable Energy House which runs on 100% renewable energy supply for heating, cooling & electricity in a monument-protected building, houses a broad spectrum of organizations working on renewable energy under one roof.

The building complex which is considered the Headquarters of renewable energy in Europe, houses offices, enterprises, residences, and trade halls, all of which all fully powered by renewable energy comprising solar and wind energy, and underground heat technology.

"This is indeed a unique operation which brings together all available technology for the generation of renewable energy," the Premier said. Even methods used for generating energy harnessed from the bodies of those residing in the building can be seen in play at the Renewable Energy House in Brussels, according to the Prime Minister.

Following the discussions with Prince Laurent, the Prime Minister and his delegation toured the complex and observed the energy generating machinery installed at various locations throughout, as well as the technology utilized in this process.

Prince Laurent, the younger brother of King Philippe of Belgium, holds the post of President of the Royal Institute for the Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and the Promotion of Clean Technologies.

Prime Minister's delegation includes Chief of Staff, Law and Order and Southern Development Minister Sagala Ratnayake, Sri Lankan Ambassador to Belgium Rodney Perera, Prime Minister's Secretary Saman Ekanayake, additional secretary Saman Athaudahetti, and special assistant Sandra Perera.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to hold first round of negotiations with a group of representatives of the European Council today on regaining the GSP+ facility.
