Having returned from their trip abroad, King Albert and Queen Paola, accompanied by their daughter, Princess Astrid, visited their younger son, Prince Laurent, at the St. Luc-University hospital in Brussels on Tuesday.
Prince Laurent has been in the hospital since March 21. He is being treated for pneumonia.
Laurent's wife, Princess Claire, has been at his bedside every day. King Philippe and Queen Mathilde were unable to visit yesterday. They were in Bruges with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Prince Laurent continues to improve, according to a palace statement.
