What a lovely idea...Elisabeth now has her own thread to mark her 18th birthday and coming of age as Duchess of Brabant!:flowers:

Lovely to see her have her own thread as an adult now :flowers:

I am still having a hard time realizing that one of the kids who was a baby when I started getting into royalty (other then UK) is now or soon to be an adult.

I wish King Baudouin and especially Fabiola could see how beautifully Elisabeth and the other children have been brought up.

Baudouin never knew Mathilde and the children, but I am certain he would be thrilled with them.;)

Great idea to have created that thread, I hope there will be plenty of news and pix to fill it !

Since there unexpectedly is an official celebration for the eighteenth birthday of the Duchess of Brabant we have opened a new thread for her birthday itself. This thread can be used for news and events after the birthday celebrations.

Princess Elisabeth remains at the Atlantic College in Wales where she's to take part in her final exams in May. Those who leave campus to go home can't return for the exams

What's going on with her is happening to alot of the UWC'S. Us first years are being told to leave while the second years are allowed to stay for exams but given restrictions. It's really unfortunate.

MARG 03-15-2020 12:04 PM

It is a sad situation but to waste the time she has already spent working on this away from home it is sensible to complete the examinations and then return home provided the school is not exposed to Covid-19.

eya 03-18-2020 02:37 AM

"Belgian Crown Princess Elisabeth, who boards at UWC Atlantic College in Wales, will return to Belgium. Her school "have taken the decision today to encourage the repatriation of as many students as possible to their home countries as a matter of urgency.""

Her parents will be relieved to see HRH. I wondered if she is banned from seeing her grandparents for safety sake.

MARG 03-19-2020 08:39 AM

14 day self isolation seems to bee the norm and very sensible

I believe so. Here in Belgium they stress really hard on not mixing the generations. Grandparents and grandchildren must stay apart. The TV station één broadcasts messages that familymembers film for eachother.

Probably or very surely there is ban. Ex-king couple is very old already and king Albert II hasn't very good health. He hardly would last corona.

Tatiana Maria 03-19-2020 01:43 PM

:previous: Are the retired royal couple still visiting the country, or are they back at home in Italy?

HereditaryPrincess 03-19-2020 06:45 PM

I don't know what it's like in Belgium but the British government have advised children not to be in the care of grandparents when self-isolating, so I would presume that the Belgian government are following similar guidelines and thus Elisabeth wouldn't be allowed to visit her grandparents. The good thing about today is that there are always virtual ways of keeping in touch.

rominet09 03-19-2020 08:33 PM

I have read Nothing here in Belgium forbidding children and grand parents mixing… of course we are advised to keep isolated.
