Princess Elisabeth of Belgium, also known as Duchess of Brabant as the heir to the Belgian throne, has made a historic trip to Egypt.

Following in the footsteps of her great-great-grandmother Queen Elisabeth (born in Bavaria), Elisabeth went on a three-day official visit to Egypt to mark the 100th anniversary of her visit to King Tut’s tomb. She was joined by her mother, Queen Mathilde.

They also saw the petroglyphs on the ‘Rock of Vultures’ and the Temple of Amenhotep III, just like Queen Elisabeth in 1930.

They also stayed at the same hotel as Queen Elisabeth.

Queen Mathilde and Princess Elisabeth also visited the Dayr al-Barsha site, where students from a Belgian university where doing excavation work.

Princess Elisabeth reportedly stayed behind in Egypt after the official visit for some free time.
