The Belgian Royal Court has confirmed that Princess Elisabeth, the heir to the throne, will pursue her education at Harvard University in Boston, marking a significant step in her

academic journey. Having successfully passed the rigorous entrance exams, she is poised to embark on a two-year Master's degree program in Public Policy, further solidifying her position on the global stage.

Currently in her final year at Oxford's esteemed Lincoln College, where she is deeply immersed in the study of history and politics, Princess Elisabeth's decision to pursue her graduate studies at Harvard underscores her commitment to academic excellence and international engagement.

In addition to her academic achievements, Princess Elisabeth has been honored with an award from the prestigious Fulbright Program, a testament to her dedication to cross-cultural exchange and understanding.

Harvard's Public Policy program, renowned for its interdisciplinary approach and emphasis on real-world problem-solving, aligns seamlessly with Princess Elisabeth's aspirations to effect positive change on a global scale.

This educational trajectory mirrors that of her father, King Philippe, who, like Princess Elisabeth, pursued studies at esteemed institutions such as Oxford and Stanford University. Moreover, her cousin, Prince Joachim, also boasts a Harvard education, further highlighting the family's commitment to academic excellence and intellectual curiosity.

Princess Elisabeth's educational journey has been marked by a departure from royal tradition, with her early education conducted in Dutch and her subsequent enrollment in international institutions such as UWC Atlantic in Wales and the Royal Military Academy.
