Mathilde and Philippe speak French with her, but Mathilde said they also read stories in Dutch to her. Her nanny speaks Dutch with her, and when the family is in Dutch-speaking company, they speak Dutch to Elisabeth as well.

I saw an item on the news about Elisabeth's first day at school. You could see her arriving with her parents, and playing in the schoolyard with other children, Mathilde wiped away some tears as they left.

Philippe said Elisabeth had been very good and that they were proud of her. Mathilde said that it was difficult for her to leave her little girl behind, Elisabeth didn't cry but her mother did!

That's what often happen the first day of school for a child: he's so proud and happy that he doesn't cry. The difficulties are coming later.
BTW, will Elisabeth go to school at afternoon? In France, the parents have the choice to leave the child at school only morning, or a fews day a week, when he's two or three.

Hello Magazine

Princess Elisabeth of Belgium's First Day of School

1 SEPTEMBER 2004
It's not every pupil who is followed to her first day of school by throngs of reporters, well-wishers and photographers. But the little blonde schoolgirl entering the doors of Sint-Jan Berchmans College in Brussels on Wednesday wasn't just an ordinary student – it was Princess Elisabeth, future queen of Belgium.

Wearing a pink dress and carrying a tiny red backpack, little Elisabeth, now nearly three years old, was perfectly prepared for the first day of the school year. The royal pre-schooler seemed remarkably unfazed by all the attention as she arrived holding hands with her parents, Crown Prince Philippe and Crown Princess Mathilde.
And with the poise of a future monarch, she contentedly made her way through the front doors, ready for the day ahead. Still too small to understand what all the fuss was about, she didn't lose her grip on mum and dad as they accepted flowers and greetings from onlookers.

A very darling little girl. (Remarkable the resemblance to Phillippe!) She didn't seem scared or frightened on her first day at all; in some of the pictures it looks like she's rather eager and leading Mom and Dad most of the way!
