Princess Claire of Belgium
Her optimism and enthusiasm (mentioned in the previous chapter), is balanced by an innate objectivity, detachment, and pragmatic realism that usually keeps her idealistic ventures on a sound course. Though she appears confident and positive, Princess Claire of Belgium is often quite skeptical and much more cautious than she lets on. And while it is true that Claire Coombs likes to play, she is also serious about her work and commitments.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Claire Coombs. Princess Claire of Belgium will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Princess Claire of Belgium has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Princess Claire of Belgium seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Princess Claire has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Princess Claire of Belgium has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Princess Claire of Belgium plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Claire Coombs.
Claire Coombs' strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Princess Claire of Belgium has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Claire Coombs can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Princess Claire of Belgium feels a need to be in control of her own life and she can be too self-involved, too immersed in her own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Princess Claire of Belgium tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Princess Claire of Belgium has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Claire Coombs' subconscious needs and feelings blend well with her conscious intentions and desires, therefore Princess Claire of Belgium is able to proceed in her life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Princess Claire's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Princess Claire has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Princess Claire and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Princess Claire of Belgium needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities say.
Although she takes herself and her responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Princess Claire of Belgium that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Claire Coombs can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling her obligations, and breaking free of them. Her wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, her life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Princess Claire of Belgium is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Claire Coombs has a rebellious streak and she often feels she is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to her.
