The most unknown member of the Spanish royal family until now was the dog Jan, the pet of Infanta Sofia and Princess Leonor.
The affectionate dog stole the show at the farewell of the Infanta, who traveled to Wales to begin her studies at the UWC Atlantic College.
Jan is a very special dog and represents the Princess and the Infanta’s affection for animals.
His presence has made him the protagonist of the most personal side of this farewell, albeit in an indirect way.
It is a clear example of how the royal family also shares this love for animals: although it was initially said that Queen Letizia did not like animals, these photos show that she has a special affection for “four-legged friends”.
What is the breed of Infanta Sofia’s dog?
Jan is a dark Labrador and although at first glance he could be mistaken for the little dog given to Princess Leonor by Felipe VI and Doña Letizia for her first communion, he is in fact another member of the family.
The attention that Jan has received shows the importance of details and the emotional bond that is created with pets.
Undoubtedly, his presence added a special touch to this important moment for the Infanta Sofia.
Jan is a constant reminder of the companionship and unconditional love that animals can provide, even in times of separation and change.
