They have been taught well, their parents have exposed them enough for the children to be comfortable with the press/people but without compromising most of their freedom, they are not being hounded outside of school day-in/day-out.

Great balance

I really like the idea for this year's summer photoshoot. It's nice to see the family more relaxed and more themselves in a casual environment. Elisabeth is a pretty young lady (Gabriel looks a lot like his older sister IMO) and I love Eleonore's dress - I wouldn't mind an adult version for myself, actually!

I love Elisabeth's outfit...casual but very chic.

Great pictures! They should have added a formal one of the Queen as well, like they did after the accession 5 years ago. My favourite is the one of the King with P. Elisabeth...mais ça va sans dire!

After all, she is the queen by right of her husband only. It's not a consitutional position she has.
Nice family pictures, though. The young Duchess looks very good.

The new portraits are wonderful. Perfect down to the last detail!

I can imagine that other shots of that photo session (maybe also a formal one of Queen Mathilde as Marchesina suggested) will be used for later occasions as it's been done so before.

I am not one who likes to make comparisons, but I lile these pictures than those released by the Dutch court in the same occasion. Those looked really like a photoshoot for some kind of reality show...

On another note, it's amazing to see how much Elisabeth looks like her grandmother Queen Paola.

The post on the royal family's Facebook account describes the anniversary pictures as simply "new photos". In contrast to the Spanish monarchy, King Philippe's siblings and extended family did not lose their membership of the Royal Family when he acceded to the throne. It is true, however, that Philippe has focused the monarchy on himself and his wife and children, which is shown by not including any other members of the Royal Family in the new photos.

These photos were a nice surprise! They're lovely - I think my favourite is the one of Philippe and Elisabeth though I also really like the one of Philippe and Mathilde together. Elisabeth looks like a future queen already, and I'm sure she'll be a great asset to the BRF.
I can't believe it's been five years already since Philippe ascended the throne.

Yes, she is quite the teen beauty now! Excellent photos with her father. I am always so touched by how naturally affectionate the four children are with one another...holding hands without being prompted, nuzzling and leaning on one another.

They are spontaneous yet poised, dignified and respectful but also very much children still. I have no idea how Philippe and Mathilde managed it given all the well publicized dysfunction in the BRF, but they have raised(seemingly) a perfect family.

I agree. It is odd that there is no official picture of the King and the Queen together wearing orders.

I love the picture of Elisabeth and her father. He looks so dignified as King and you can see the love and pride he has for his eldest daughter there, Elisabeth is quite the young woman now, very poised and elegant, every inch the future queen of her country.

I think it is due to the fact that the late Baudouin and Fabiola have been better parents for Philippe than his own, setting a wonderful example for him to raise his children. But also Mathilde's family is to be taken into consideration...

These are genuinely nice portraits!
A nice mix of being formal and relaxed of the same time.

Beautiful pictures! Lovely family. Agree, Elisabeth is beautiful and already exudes self-possession.
