Elisabeth would be in her last year of secondary school this year, right? Is there some form of college that Belgian students go on to after secondary school or do they carry on at their school until university? I'm not very familiar with the Belgian education system.

Thank you for answering my question. So it seems that the next step Elisabeth will take, education wise, is university. I wish her luck with her studies.

It seems that his school is not in Brussels but in Louvain. It does seem to be a Flemish school.

The school Emmanuel goes to is in Kessel-Lo, near Leuven. All of the royal couple's children are being educated in Dutch (thank god). Elisabeth has even followed extra classes to improve her French spelling.

I guess once their secundary education is finished, they will go abroad for universitary studies, in French or English.

Gabriel plays hockey and we've seen the children play together at the palace and at parks, so I don't think that's true either but that's just my opinion I guess
That article was full of trash for Mathilde, as usual, IMO. Elizabeth is a teenager, how can you keep her away from her friends via internet connection?! Maybe she doesn't have a facebook/twitter/instagram account for security reasons, but surely she does use instant messaging apps with her friends.

She is in the second to last year of secundary school. So no university or university college for her just yet :)

Elisabeth is in the 5th year, Gabriël in 3rd year. I think Eléonore is in 4th year and Emmanuel in the 6th (and last) of elementary school.

It's virtually IMPOSSIBLE to keep them away from that, even teachers send their works through whatsapp/telegram nowadays, so if you can't have internet in your phone you're missing a huge part of life, not just interactions with your friends.

They really are a lovely family.

Yes she does. She's going to be in university soon. I don't remember if Belgians take a gap year in between :) Good luck to her :)

She is only 16. She has two years before she goes to university, three if she does a gap year. We have a bit of a wait ahead.

Princess Elisabeth was born on 25 October 2001, so she’ll be 16 in a month. If I’m not mistaken she only has 2 more years of secondary school.

Happy 12th birthday to Prince Emmanuel. I really like the picture. It's different from all the other pictures that the court releases for such occasions.
