The Belgian Royal family is not known for it's warm or close bonds.
I believe that the relationship between Charlotte-Josephine and Boudewijn was good but I'm not sure either of them were very close to Albert II or to their half brother and sisters.
Daphne and Esmeralda are not close and i think Esmeralda and Alexander saw a little more of each other.
Philip is not particularly close to his siblings but has in Astrid and Lorenz good help as monarch.
Laurent is not close to his family.
With some of the Luxembourg cousins both Philippe and Astrid are quite close. They saw a lot of each other at the home of uncle Boudewijn and aunt Fabiola.
Astrid seems closest to her parents.
The children of Astrid seem very close and Philippe and Mathilde also stress the importance of good harmony in their family so i guess the future is looking brighter.
We might have another situation like Delphine because a former lover of prince Laurent has a son that is rumoured to be his.
