Belgium’s Crown Princess Elisabeth took the oath of office as an officer, as her male predecessors had done.
The ceremony took place at the Royal Military School in Brussels. The 21-year-old princess is Belgium’s first heir to the throne since a constitutional change in the 1990s allowed women to ascend the throne.
Elizabeth swore loyalty and allegiance to the king, the laws and the Constitution of Belgium.
