Emmanuel is such a curious child, I have noticed he always asks a lot of questions in these kind of visits

They were speaking Dutch last year in the Sea Life visit, I think the kids speak the language of the regions they go to.

I believe the King and the Queen have arranged it so that the children go to Dutch-speaking schools and as counterbalance French is the language at home. The Dutch language of Princess Elisabeth (and I assume her siblings) seem better than the French language, and that is an unicum in the history of the Belgian royal family. Princess Elisabeth needed remedial teaching on French, to improve her writing. Source.

Prince Emmanuel goes to a special school for children with dyslexia, dyscalculis and/or dyspraxis. He looks like a sensitive young man with a great interest in things, a hunger for knowledge but maybe needs intensive training to cope with all the overwhelming information his brains and his senses have to filter.

I'm a bit of a beginner when it comes to French, but did you notice any particular mistake they made while speaking?

Prince Emmanuel seems to be enjoying the zoo. Prince Gabriel looks bored and like he didn't want to be there.

At some point a young teen wants to be anywhere else but a family trip with mom and dad and pesky siblings. Totally normal.
