The Belgian Royal Palace has released new images of King Philippe and Princess Eléonore for their birthdays.
One image was released of the King taken by Frédéric Andrieu in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in Cape Town. It was taken at the end of March during the Belgian State Visit to South Africa.
King Philippe marked his 63rd birthday on 15 April.
His Majesty’s youngest child, Princess Eléonore, celebrated her 15th birthday just one day after her father’s big day.
Two photographs were released by the Royal Palace for her birthday and were taken by normal palace photographer Bas Bogaerts at the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken.
Eléonore is King Philippe and Queen Mathilde’s youngest child. She is fourth in the Belgian line of succession behind her siblings: Princess Elisabeth, Duchess of Brabant (21), Prince Gabriel (19) and Prince Emmanuel (17).
Eléonore lives at the Palace of Laeken with her parents and older brother, Emmanuel. The Duchess of Brabant is currently at university in the United Kingdom, and Prince Gabriel attends the Royal Military Academy of Belgium.
