Princess Luisa Maria of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria-Este (Luisa Maria Anna Martine Pilar; born 11 October 1995) is the fourth child and second daughter of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este, and Princess Astrid of Belgium. She was born at the Saint Jean Hospital in Brussels, Belgium, and is currently ninth in line to the Belgian throne.
All of her grandparents and great-grandparents are either royal or noble; she descends from the Austrian, Belgian, Italian, Swedish, French, Danish, British, Portuguese, Spanish, and German royal families. As she was born after the 1991 change of the Belgian constitution, which abolished Salic Law, she is the first Belgian princess to be born with full succession rights to the throne.
After having been educated at Sint-Jan-Berchmans School in Brussels – as most young members of the royal family are – she attended Sevenoaks School in Kent, England, from 2009, a school already attended by her eldest brother, Amedeo. She is attending university at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. In 2017, she traveled through Australia with a group of university friends.
All the children of the Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Lorenz, bear the title of "Prince(ss) of Belgium" by Belgian Royal Decree of 2 December 1991, in addition to their traditional Austrian titles, i.e. "Archduke/Archduchess of Austria-Este, Prince(ss) Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, Prince(ss) of Modena". Internationally, Luisa Maria is styled as HI&RH Princess Luisa Maria of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria-Este.
