I like how Philippe and Mathilde sometimes bring Elisabeth along to certain events. I love her coat, she looks sweet and also seemed to be quite confident when performing her speech, which I guess is a good quality for a royal in her position (heiress apparent) to have as she will need it a lot in the future. Would this be her second speech after the one she performed at the hospital when she was younger, or have I missed some?

It would be interesting to know what she said in her speech.

Very positive comments on twitter towards Elisabeth, who gave the speech in the three official languages of Belgium.

Love how slowly but surely her parents are introducing her into royal life, by the time she's 18, this girl will be a pro!

She wrote her speech herself.

I translated the lyrics:

Quote:
Hundred years ago the Great War began.
Thousands of soldiers deserted their families for the front.
Violence, fear and hunger, are their daily lot.
Men, women and children are forced to flee. Their home, their school, their village are destroyed.
We will all those victims in our country never forget.
Even today, war shatters lives. Fathers, mothers, children are suffering, or are separated from each other.
But their misfortune also gives us a lesson in courage and dignity.
The willpower in their eyes invites us to stand for a better world of justice and peace.
It comes to us, youth, to keep our torch high and, like today, to form a light front.
Clip of the speech

Thanks a lot, stephanievl! I like how she wrote the speech herself - I was impressed as it sounds quite mature for her age. I also like how she spoke it in the three languages of Belgium, that's a thoughtful touch. I have a feeling that she'll be a great asset to Belgium in the near future.

Thank you!

I am actually amazed about how confident she sounds, a regular 13 year old kid would be pretty nervous but she looked very comfortable and spoke very well

Where is baby Elisabeth gone? She's already a lady. Impressive, for a almost-13 years old. Speaking four languages at her age is also mind-blowing.

I feel like Queen Mathilde is about to cry when she looks at her daugher, king Philippe seems very emotional too. I don't blame them, almost cried too

The Princess Elisabeth has really impressed me with this event. Her clothing, whilst conservative, are appropriate for a girl her age and for the occasion. That she is fluent in so many languages and has written such an insightful speech speaks well for her intelligence and empathy. She truelly is a credit to her parents and herself. She has the makings of an excellent Monarch

Thank you so much for translating, stephanievl I understood most of the French, but only some of the Dutch and the German and I was looking for a good translation of that wonderful speech. So thanks!

What a beautiful speech. She's so good at speaking in public. I was fifteen the first time I threw a speech and I was absolutely petrified despite having practiced a lot. Élisabeth does it so eloquently and with so much strength in her voice. She's wonderful. Bravo, Élisabeth!
