On Thursday, June 6th King Albert II of Belgium celebrated his 90th birthday.

To celebrate the Belgian Royal Palace shared new images on Instagram with the caption: "King Albert II turns 90 today! We celebrate his birthday with new portraits of King Albert, the King and Princess Elisabeth. Three generations together."

In the images, Princess Elisabeth of Belgium perfected the statement suit, and her contemporary two-piece was from a high street favourite retailer. 

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde's eldest daughter wore a blue belted tuxedo jacket and matching wide-leg trousers from luxury British brand Jigsaw. Putting a twist on the classic tux jacket, the double-breasted piece a waist-cinching detachable sash belt.

She paired it with the matching wide-leg tuxedo trousers featuring a contrasting satin panel to match the jacket lapels, giving the entire look an eveningwear feel yet remaining sophisticated and elegant. For an added touch of royal glamour, she wore the Crystal Jasmine Earrings by Carolina Herrera, which Queen Mathilde had previously worn.

Bold, dopamine-inducing outfits are the princess's signature. From blues to pinks and head-to-toe red, the 22-year-old is constantly sporting a cheerful wardrobe agenda. Notably, and the royal wedding of Prince Hussein and Princess Rajwa of Jordan last year, she perfected the Barbiecore trend in a fuschia pink cape gown from Essential Antwerp, paired with matching shoes and a matching handbag.

She's also an avid fan of matching of matching separates. At the end of 2023 she wore what was arguably one of her chicest looks to date in a Dries Van Noten flared velvet trousers and jacket set.

It's an exciting year for the princess, who will study for a two-year master's degree at the prestigious Harvard University in Boston starting this year, studying politics. She is currently completing an undergraduate degree in history and politics at Lincoln College at England's University of Oxford.
