Princess Astrid married Archduke Lorenz of Austria-Este, the head of the Archducal House of Austria-Este, on 22 September 1984 at Brussels. Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz have five children, who bear the title "Prince/Princess of Belgium" (in each of the three official languages) as members of the Belgian royal family and Archduke/Archduchess of Austria: Astrid was formerly President of the Belgian Red Cross,[2] a position which ended on 31 December 2007.

The princess is also a colonel in the Medical Component of the Belgian Armed Forces. Her official residence is the Royal Palace of Laeken in Brussels.[2] She is a member of the Honorary Board of the International Paralympic Committee. Upon her brother's ascension to the throne, Princess Astrid will take on some of the duties previously conducted by Philippe as the Honorary chairman of the board of the Foreign Trade Agency with his wife, Queen Mathilde.

  • 15. The establishment of our center came into existence with the approval of Prof. Osama S. Tayyeb. This was authorized under Resolution No. 7139 / S on 05/13/1431 H., corresponding to 27/4/2010. In addition to the generous support of businessman Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Al-Amoudi, who realized that the greatest investment is with Allah and the innovative idea of breast cancer survivor and global activist, Dr. Samia Al-Amoudi. The historic launch of the project took place on July 4, 2010, with the primary idea behind the Center of Excellence based on establishing a new concept of women's healthcare in the Kingdom, namely the vital medical issue-breast cancer. Through her work as a physician, experience as a breast cancer survivor and efforts of spreading awareness as an international activist, Dr. Samia has brought to light a broader vision concerning the needs of breast cancer patients. In addition to her visits to international centers such as the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation (later known as the Susan G. Komen for the Cure), M.D. Andersen Cancer Center, The John Hopkins Center, Harvard University and several others, Al-Amoudi realized that there were significant deficiencies in the healthcare culture in the Kingdom, in general, as well as the concept of healthcare for breast cancer patients, despite the fact that there is no shortage in qualified personnel and advanced technology. Hence, Al-Amoudi began studying the gap in available medical services and how to satisfy the needs of patients, given the available level of healthcare services. In doing so, Al-Amoudi took a quantum leap in improving the quality of services, without which healthcare as a whole could never be complete. Thus, the Center of Excellence for Breast Cancer was established in operating under international standards. The Center hopes that Allah Almighty will grant them success in reshaping women's healthcare in the Kingdom, in achieving the ultimate goal and their motto 'towards a world-class first in women's healthcare.'
