Princess Elisabeth of Belgium put on a typically stylish display as she posed in her new portraits released for her 21st birthday today.

The 21-year-old royal, who is studying History and Politics at Oxford University, donned a trendy off-the-shoulder blouse with a pair of white trousers in the snaps, which were shared on Belgian Royal Palace’s official Instagram. 

Elisabeth smiled as she looked out the window in the photographs, wearing a pair of gold statement hoop earrings for the occasion.

She opted for a sweep of dark eyeliner across her lids, and a dash of blusher across her cheeks.

In one of the snaps, the royal could be seen smiling sweetly as she looked out the window, with her blonde locks tucked behind her ears to reveal her statement earrings.

In the second, she appeared pensive as she sat upon a window sill and looked out. It is not known whether the photographs were taken.  

Princess Elisabeth will ascend the throne after her father. A change in the law a decade ago made it possible for the eldest child, male or female, to ascend the throne in the country. She will become the country’s first Queen Regent if she takes up the role.

Elisabeth spent 18 months boarding at UWC Atlantic College in South Wales before returning home to Brussels in March ahead of the government lockdown.

The princess, who received her International Baccalaureate Diploma in 2020, enrolled at Oxford University after completing a one-year course in social and military sciences at the Royal Military Academy.

The course is said to teach in-depth about the four components of Belgian defence; Army, Air Force, Navy and Medical.

King Philippe, 60, spent three years at the esteemed institution between 1978 to 1981.

Last month, the Crown Princess of Belgium called the late British Queen her ‘role model’ as she represented her parents King Philippe and Queen Mathilde in signing a book of condolence in Brussels.

Princess Elisabeth signed the book of condolences at the residence of the UK ambassador, and wrote a sweet note praise the late Monarch’s ‘exemplarity’.

The Belgian royal appeared deep in thought in pictures shared by the royal household on Instagram.

‘Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been a role model and a source of inspiration for many of us, young and old,’ the Princess wrote in her note.

‘I join the millions around the world in mourning an extraordinary personality, whose exemplarity has had a profound impact on younger generations. May her soul rest in peace.

‘On behalf of King Philippe and Queen Mathilde, I wish to express our deepest condolences to the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.’

Elisabeth dedicated the note ‘in loving memory of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II.’ and signed her name.
