Louis Philippe Léopold Victor Ernest became crown prince at birth in Laeken as the eldest son of Leopold I, King of the Belgians, and his wife, born Princess Louise d'Orleans, a daughter of Louis-Philippe, King of the French. He was baptized at the St. Michael and Gudula Cathedral in Brussels by the Archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels. He was named after his maternal grandfather, Louis-Philippe I, King of the French; his father; his cousin, Queen Victoria; and his father's brother, Ernst, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

Louis-Philippe died in Laeken before his first birthday of an inflammation of the mucous membranes. The placard on his tomb refers to him as "Duc de Brabant," but Louis-Philippe was not Duke of Brabant as this title was not created for the heir-apparent to the throne until 1840.
