I really like Elisabeth's new statue and it's interesting that she has one. Have there been any statues of the BRF in modern times such as this one? I wonder if Elisabeth will visit her statue one day.

King Baudouin (picture and picture)

King Léopold III (picture)

He is a clone of Queen Mathilde!

I can't believe Gabriel is 15 already! He's a very handsome young man indeed and I agree that he looks a lot like Mathilde, especially around the eyes.

She starts school next week Monday. There may be pictures from when she gets off the bus but I honestly think it's 50/50.

I think she will continue to attend the National Day celebrations as they take place in the summer during school vacation.

The picture with the all the kids is such a beautiful one, they are so close, which is such a breath of fresh air in comparison to the relation the current king has with his own siblings. Anyway, I bet no picture was released with her parents are they were too emotional for sure !!!

Love these photos. Obviously Elisabeth is the big sister and everyone loves her.

Those pictures put a lump in my throat! The Belgian Royal children are so beautiful and close..I remember when each of them were born and now big sister is leaving the nest!

What a sweet idea to show her siblings bidding her farewell.

Is Lisa's little dog going to Wales with her, or just turning out to bid her farewell? He looks rather sad!

Wonderful photos, I wish my own RF would be as generous with them. The communication manager of the Belgian court is doing a great job.

I still remember Philippe announcing a 'vrouwtje' (little woman) was born, to the hilarity of many Flemish speakers as that is not often use to describe a baby. It is hard to believe she is now old enough to stand on her own feet at the Atlantic College.

It will be a good experience for Elisabeth to live in a school dorm where she will be treated like any other girl rather than being a Crown Princess living in a royal castle.

That would be Patrick Renault (assisted by, I assume, Rafike Yilmaz).


I agree that they are quite open with family pictures where we get the semiannual photo shoots/media moments.
