The entire final session in on the RTBF website, it doesn't have (surprisingly) and geographical restriction and one needs only to register. But I don't know how or whether it is possible to download it...

Final - Session 3 and awarding - RTBF Auvio

It is only available for 5/6 days more.

Whereas her brothers and sister only went to visit museums, exhibitions but nothing too formal (except Gabriel who went to commemoration for the late Queen Astrid in Switzerland).
Thanks! You make good points about Princess Elisabeth's speeches and the range of her activities (I think some of the engagements attended by the younger siblings could also be viewed as formal, though perhaps less so).

True, that is allowed by the law, but in contrast to Philippe's siblings, Elisabeth's siblings will be required to support themselves, and their careers will limit the number of royal engagements they conduct.

This is the way I see it: Philippe & Mathilde want their 4 children to be part of their active life, and gently introduce them to their public roles. They are not locked away from public view, but attend annual formal activities (National Day, Queen Elisabeth Competition, Christmas Concert) and more relaxed activities (Museum Night, Visiting a company, a procession, a folkloric event, sport games) more or less according to their own interests. It's rare that all 4 children attend a less formal occasion at once with their parents.

Then there's also the annual family photo shoot on location and the official photos.

So all in all we get to see the royal children often enough to remember they exist, that there's 4 of them, that they are fluent in several languages (never underestimate this in Belgium) and that they also wear jeans to school :-)

The benefit for the children is that they understand their roles, their public image and yes, their duties... But at the same time they're protected by the presence of their family. It would be so easy to shoot pictures of the children at the school gate every day, yet this never happens. Often there's a message on social media about Elisabeth & Mathilde shopping somewhere, yet no picture ever accompanies the message.

I think Belgian court has certainly managed a very good balance on how much they introduce the children to public life.

When their children will be big enough to officially step in where Astrid or (god forbid) Laurent is needed now, they will be well at ease - much unlike Philippe in his day.

It is the first time since 1935 with King Leopold and Queen Astrid that we have a royal couple with young Children.
They are doing their very best.
Their 4 Children are speaking Dutch fluently what never happened since 1830 !
