As she is 10th and so distantly in line for the throne after her four cousins, mother, two brothers and two sisters, her mother tries to limit her exposure to the press and protect her private life. She joined her mother and sister Princess Luisa Maria for the world premiere of The Adventures of Tintin on October 22, 2011 {Source}. She attended her uncle's coronation in June 2013 with her family, but is rarely seen attending other official events. She is the middle granddaughter of King Albert II & Queen Paola. Her sisters Princess Maria Laura & Princess Luisa Maria, and cousin Princess Elisabeth are all older, while her cousins Princess Louise and Princess Eléonore are both younger.
