Princess Elisabeth, dubbed “marvelous,” will begin her studies at Oxford in October.
PRINCESS ELISABETH of Belgium has set her sights on the University of Oxford, where she will attend Lincoln College to study history and politics.
The Belgian royals have announced that the 19-year-old heir to the Belgian throne will begin her history and politics course in October.
Elisabeth will begin a three-year program at Lincoln College in the fall, although she plans to “frequently return to Belgium and remain involved in Belgian public life” during her studies.
The royal is King Philippe’s and Queen Mathilde’s eldest daughter, and she will be Belgium’s next queen.
The Belgian queen has already completed part of her schooling in the United Kingdom, having spent two years in Wales at UWC Atlantic College.
The 19-year-old was also accepted into the Royal Military School in Brussels for a year.
With a post to their official Instagram page, the Belgian Royal Family announced that she will continue her studies at the famed English university.
Princess Elisabeth will begin a three-year ‘History & Politics’ study at @lincolncollegeoxford, part of @oxford uni, in October, according to the caption.
“The Princess will return to Belgium on a regular basis and remain active in Belgian public life.”
Fans of the royal family were overjoyed by the news and were quick to express their congratulations and well wishes.
“I’d want to congratulate Princess Elisabeth. “I hope her studies go well and she has many fond memories of Oxford,” one person remarked.
Another Instagram user wrote, “Wow, congratulations to Princess Elisabeth.”
Others, on the other hand, reacted to the photograph taken by Bas Bogaerts.
One praised, “Marvelous Princess Elizabeth is the title of beauty, grace, and sophistication in simplicity.”
According to Belgian daily Le Soir, Elisabeth took a history exam anonymously so that her title would not impact her admittance.
According to the article, the Princess picked her own course with her parents’ approval.
She also sought input from alumni from a variety of universities to assist her in making her decision.
