Camouflage suit instead of designer dresses! Seals instead of robes!

In September, the royal recruit has to dig at Camp Elsenborn in Bütgenbach. The military initiation phase (PIM) takes place there.

The rules are tough. The smartphone stays in the locker, family and friends are not allowed to meet your Highness.

She sleeps in a room with friends and has to go through all the maneuvers and training programs.

There is no extra sausage for the soldier. Captain Gilles Marx (31), head of the company, to BILD: “You have to clean your room and your weapons just like the others.”

No picnic for the Crown Princess: The morning starts at 5 a.m. with exercise. After breakfast it’s time to clean your boots.

Then classes: psychology, sociology and history. In addition: defense techniques and weapons knowledge – and as a challenge orientation only with a compass and map.

Like all other recruits, Elisabeth is only addressed by her first name, in the military files she is listed as “Elisabeth Van België”.

The sweat demands its price: 14 of her 189 comrades could not cope with the drill and have broken off the tough training in the last few weeks.

Princess Elisabeth pulls through – crawling and crawling royal!
