I applaud her parents for ensuring she is having a normal upbringing. As for her grumpiness - she is a 12 year old girl. Show me a twelve year old (boy or girl) who doesn't have attitude!

Just before Christmas it came out that a creditable threat (I've been watching and reading too many Political Thrillers lately when that's all I can come up w/to call it) of either Elisabeth or all four children being at the least kidnapped and at the most... The reason given was as a ploy to try and get the King and his Government to change their Immigration Policy.

I haven't heard anymore since, other than the tightening of the children's security that is.

Elisabeth is a member of her school choir and went to sing in a WWI remembrance concert in Verdun.

Good to see her doing normal activities for her age and leading a somewhat normal life in spite of the threats.

She seems a shy, composed, pretty tween. Rather mature for her age. I can imagine that her family is very proud of her.

Thanks for the video!

While I understand this is for her protection and for the safety of your classmates it is sad. I agree with GracieGiraffe because it's the little opportunities such as a bus ride with your classmates that are part of your school memories.

I think Elisabeth is very fortunate that she's allowed to do what she likes, she might not get the full "schooltrip" experience but she's getting as close as it is possible for a girl in her position, she has friends at school and looks like a well mannered, balanced young teen, I think P&M are trying to give her a life as close to normal as possible and support all her hobbies.

I wonder if the belgian royal family has ever made public news about their children's holy sacraments: I searched on the net any article related to holy communion of Elisabeth, Gabriel and Emanuel, but I couldn't find anything... All three should (or at least Elisabeth and Gabriel) have already taken communion by now... Elisabeth is even the age for confirmation... Any info?

They don't inform the public about these things, they keep them absolutely private which is well considering there are plenty of religions around.

I saw photographs of Princess Elisabeth's First Holy Communion several years ago. It took place at the Royal Chapel of Ciergnan Castle if memory serves.

As I recall it, all 4 children took communion during Queen Fabiola's funeral mass.


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.
