IIRC Eléonore didn't take communion at Queen Fabiola's funeral but the three oldest certainly did.

That's right. Eléonore didn't and actually had her arms crossed. The three oldest children took it.

That makes sense, little Eleonore is only around six? and more than likely has not received instruction/preparation to take the Sacrament yet.

In Belgium (if it has not changed but I doubt it) there is the "petite communion" at 7 years old and the "grande communion" at around 11 years old. In Luxemburg only one at 9 years old.

The age of confirmation on the other hand changes a lot from country to country, ranging from early teens to mid-teens. Since Elisabeth is still 13, she may not have been confirmed yet.
Thank you! I was a little buffled that no info at all was shared with the public, since other monarchies generally relase at least some essential details...

It's September 1st today, the summer break is over and therefore it's been the first day back at school for the lovely Belgian kids!

Queen Mathilde brought Prince Emmanuel to school, while King Philippe accompanied Princess Elisabeth, Prince Gabriel and Princess Eleonore:

Great photos, thanks iceflower for sharing.
Wow, Elisabeth has changed a lot! She looks so much older than her last appearance. Is she nearly finishing secondary school? In Britain she would be starting Year 10, which is the penultimate year of secondary school (after secondary school pupils go onto sixth form, for ages 16-18, or college). I don't know how the Belgian system works.

Elisabeth goes to the 3rd year of secondary school, Gabriel to his 1st year.
Eléonore goes to the 2nd year of elementary school, Emmanuel to his 5th year.

In Belgium it's 3 or 4 years of pre school (2,5 - 5 years old) then 6 years of elementary school (6 - 12) then 6 years of secondary school (12 - 18 years old) then off to university or college.

I noticed that her looks have certainly changed in the last few months. Amazing how this can happen in just a blink of an eye.

Both Gabriel and Elisabeth are already at the height of their tall father's shoulders!

It's safe to say with two tall parents these kids will be quite tall themselves.

She's becoming a lady. Her hair looks a bit messy.

Yes it does but she has that last little bit of childhood informality to enjoy before she has to be perfectly coiffed and polished like the adult Royal ladies. She is a lovely poised young lady that will make her family and country proud I am positive. Wishing her the best 14th year ever!
