Princess Elisabeth of Belgium, 5, certainly enjoyed herself at the opening of a science museum’s youth centre in Brussels. The centre offers the possibility for children to learn about how things work by trying them out, just as the little princess did, building a wall out of giant bricks and making a mini-pizza. Later she practised her royal skills by meeting and shaking hands with the museum staff members. Elisabeth is the oldest child of Crown Prince Philippe of Belgium, 47, and Crown Princess Mathilde, 34, and has younger brothers Prince Gabriel, 3 1/2, and Prince Emmanuel, 20 months.
