2014.10.17: Princess Elisabeth at the First World War commemoration at the St. World War cemetery in Ploegsteert, Belgium.
Kroonprinses Elisabeth heeft op de ceremonie in Ploegsteert een tekst voorgelezen. Ze had die zelf geschreven. Opvallend is dat ze dat in de drie landstalen doet. Het gebeurt zeer weinig dat de kroonprinses iets in het openbaar zegt. Haar ouders, koning Filip en koningin Mathilde, gaven geen toespraak. Zeker 2.000 mensen woonden de ceremonie bij.
Princess Elisabeth, the heir to the Belgian throne gave a speech on the 100th anniversary of the western front of World War I.
The speech was given in the three official languages of Belgium: french, flemish (a dialect of dutch) and german.
Where did time go? Not long ago she was a small wafflette who walked besides her parents, now she’s doing speeches and sheet.
By the time this girl is 18, she’ll be a complete pro at this royal business.
STAAAAAAHP GROWING UP ELISABETH! Just… stop. I can’t take you being so wonderful and doing speeches and being the perfect Wafflette you are!
Damn. That was pretty flawless. The pride on Mathilde’s face at the end almost made me want to cry.
