Duchess of Brabant

Happy Birthday to the Duchess of Brabant, who turns 16 today. The eldest child of then Crown Prince Philippe of Belgium and Jonkvrouw Mathilde d’Udekem d’Acoz, she was born second-in-line to the Belgian Throne, under the absolute primogeniture act enacted just a decade prior to her birth. The eldest of four siblings, she resides at the Royal Palace of Laeken, and enjoys drawing and reading. She also plays the piano, attends ballet classes and likes to cycle, play tennis, swim, ski and sail. In 2013, after her father’s accession to the throne, she became the Duchess of Brabant. She attends a Dutch-speaking secondary school in Brussels. I wish HRH a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!

  1. OMIGOSH! Look how beautiful she is! She is the blonde version of the late lamented Queen Astrid. She also seems to be a sweet and caring young lady. I wish her joy!
