It’s Oxford for Crown Princess Elisabeth

Belgium’s crown princess Elisabeth is off to Oxford University, where she will read history and politics at Lincoln College.  Following her two-year stint at the Royal Military Academy in Brussels and secondary studies at the United World College of the Atlantic in the Vale of Glamorgan (Wales) the crown princess has once again chosen to pursue her education in Britain.

The 19-year-old embarks on the three-year course in October.  The crown princess is scheduled to make regular trips to Belgium and will stay in touch with Belgian public life and attend official engagements together with King Filip, members of her family or alone.

The crown princess is no stranger to Britain’s shores and the ways of the British people.  In 2020 she obtained her international baccalaureate at the UWC Atlantic College outside Cardiff. 

In July she completed her studies at the Royal Military Academy in Brussels.  “I enjoyed my time at the RMA tremendously” she told newsmen this summer. “I met many fantastic people and built up a lot of experience.”

The princess is hoping for more of the same in the UK.
