Young Belgium royals make confident return to school

2 SEPTEMBER 2008
Already an old pro at age six, Princess Elisabeth clearly had no qualms about heading back for a new term at Brussels' Sint-Jan Berchmans College, happily shaking hands with the principal upon their arrival.

Her five-year-old brother Prince Gabriel, who returns for his third year at the college's nursery school, seemed to share his sister's laid-back approach.

Little Emanuel meanwhile can count on seeing other familiar faces in the school's corridors, apart from those of his siblings. His cousins Princess Luisa Maria and Princess Laetitia Maria, the daughters of Prince Lorenz and Princess Astrid of Belgium, are also pupils.
