Royal Profile:Princess Luisa Maria of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria-Este

Princess Luisa Maria Anna Martine Pilar of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria-Este was born 11 October 1995, the second youngest child of Prince Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria-Este{Source}. She has four older siblings and a sister-in-law{Source}:

Like her elder siblings and cousins did before her, she attended Sint Jan Berchmans College in Belgium. In 2009, she began to attend Sevenoaks College in England, just like her eldest brother{Source}. It is likely she either is undertaking a GAP year this year or in her final year at Sevenoaks.

Since her mother is fiercely private about her children's lives, Princess Luisa Maria is rarely seen in the public eye. In recent years as she and her siblings get older, her mother has relaxed a bit, allowing them to attend events. In 2003, she attended her youngest siblings baptism {Photos}. In 2008, she attended her great-aunt, Queen Faboila's 80th birthday celebrations {Photo} as well as the Royal Family's annual summer photocall {Photos}. In 2011, she joined her mother and youngest sister for the world premiere of The Adventures of Tintin directed by Steven Spielberg {Photos}{Source}. In 2012, she attended her mother's 50th birthday celebrations {Photo} and the family photocall {Photos}. In 2013, she was among the Royal Family when they attended the abdication ceremony and investiture ceremonies of her grandfather and uncle and National Day celebrations {Photos}.

Princess Luisa Maria is presently 9th in line for the Belgian throne after her four cousins, mother, two brothers and sister.
