Princess Claire has dual nationality, Belgian and British, and trained at the Antwerp office of a chartered surveyors' firm.
After completing her secondary education, she studied as a surveyor, and completed a training period with
Brone & Oldenhove in Wavre and qualified as a chartered surveyor in 1999.
