Article Photos: Belgian Crown Prince at heart of royal scandal 1/3

  File - In this Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012 file photo, Belgium's King Albert II, right, speaks with Queen Paola as they sit on a bench on the grounds of the Royal Palace in Laeken, Belgium. Albert II’s kingdom is increasingly threatened by royal-bashing separatists seeking the breakup of Belgium. Now, a book dipping deep into the privacy of kings and princes is adding insult to injury. With its back against the wall, the royal palace sought to strike back in the week of Oct. 29, 2012, seeking action against the journalist who published the book ‘’Royal Questions’’ which is sometimes as rich on dangerous liaisons as it is on the use of anonymous sources.
