It’s back to school!

Nearly 1.2 million school children go back to school today including the children of Filip, King of Belgians, and Queen Mathilde.

Princess Eléonore (left), King Filip’s youngest daughter, is going to the Dutch-medium Sint-Jan Berchmanscollege in Brussels. Her elder brother, Prince Gabriel (centre right), is already back at school.  He started at the International School of Brussels (ISB) in Watermaal-Bosvoorde last week.  16-year-old Prince Gabriel left the Sint-Jan Berchmanscollege to switch to an English-medium private school in preparation of an international baccalaureate.

Meanwhile 17-year-old Princess Elisabeth (right) is still in Wales in the UK where she is studying at the Atlantic World College in the Vale of Glamorgan.  13-year-old Prince Emmanuel (centre left) is at the Eureka School in Kessel-Lo, a school for kids with learning difficulties and what are described as “structure problems”.
