The future of the infanta Sofia, 15, is already defined, the daughter of the kings of Spain will begin her studies next September at the UWC Atlantic College in Wales, the same school where her sister Princess Leonor, 17, studied high school.
However, this big step for the youngest daughter of King Felipe, 55, and Queen Letizia, 50, means that she has to give up, at least for now, one of her biggest dreams: to be a professional footballer.
Infanta Sofia of Spain is a soccer fanatic
As it is known, Princess Leonor’s sister is a fan of this sport, she has even been playing for some time as a midfielder in a small team in Madrid and, a few weeks ago, it was known her desire to become a professional and be part of a women’s team at a higher level.
She inherited this same love of sport from her father, King Felipe, and it also caused her to be bullied by her classmates during her time at Santa María de los Rosales school.
She intended to form a career in sports, so the Infanta wanted to join the DUX International Madrid Football Academy, a women’s soccer team registered with the Royal Madrid Football Federation, which has its own team in the First Division.
The joining process is based on a registration process and several physical tests, which Infanta has not yet completed. However, at least for the next two years, this opportunity has been put on hold while she studies at the Welsh boarding school.
