Feel free to move if the post is not right here!

The National Anthem of Belgium "The Brabanconne" ends with the words "Le Roi, la Loi, la Liberté!" or in Flamish or German "Voor Vorst, voor Vrijheid en voor Recht!" and "Für König, Recht und Freiheit!"

Will the words "Roi", "Vorst" and "König" be subsituted to "Reine", "Vorstin" and "Königin" after Elisabeth will be Queen?

According to newspaper De Standaard, princess Elisabeth has to take French lessons. Despite her excellent results (95/100) at school, she seems to have writing problems with her maternal language.
Elisabeth has a draw talent, and she can work very well with the computer, especially powerpoints.
Next year she is going to secundary school, still in Sint-Jans Berchmans. Gabriel is going to the 5th grade and Eleonore to the 3th year of Kindergarten.
Emmanuel stays for an extra year in Eureka, near Leuven.

boarding school I seems mainly to be the fashion for the brits. I can't see her parents sending her away to board later.

I learned french at school and once I've been told by my teacher that it was quite common actually for french students ti have orthography problems in their language, due to the diphthongs and other stuffs like that

Will Elisabeth become Duchess of Brabant? Or was this specific to her father? Is this title like that of the Prince of Wales, Princess of Orange, Prince of Astrius and so on?

amaryllus 07-22-2013 10:15 PM

she did, yes. the household that officially belongs to the dukes of Brabant has been disbanded and will be reformed on her turning 18

Archduchess Zelia 07-22-2013 10:16 PM

IIRC she automatically became Duchess of Brabant when her father assumed throne.

In a way I think Elisabeth feels more comfortable in Flemish than in French since she gets her education in the language, has flemish classmates and it seems like her parents are making an effort to educate her and her siblings in Flemish rather than in French at home.

definitely quite normal if french is considered a second language at the school. but she can speak it of course because it's her mother tongue.

I really like the idea that Mathilde and Philippe want their children to be able to speak the two national languages at the same level...without accents or any mistakes. it's a good thing, since there have been through times complaints about the Royal Family not being able to speak Flemish

Lovely photos. She has got her moms fashion sense, very good eye. I guess they don't wear uniforms like I assumed.

Queen Mathilde has polish origin by her mother and I'm always looking at Princess Elizabeth with great pleasure because of her Slavic appearance.

It is nice to see them with their dad. Pity it wasn't the whole family today.

Queen Mathilde was dropping off Prince Emmanuel. Any idea why he goes to a different school?
