Princess Leonor starred in an emotional flag-swearing ceremony that moved even her mother, Queen Letizia, to tears.
After the ceremony, which saw 410 cadets swear allegiance to their country, the princess and her companions celebrated the day with a private gathering, although some photos ended up being leaked to the Spanish media.
Leaked photos of Leonor and Queen Letizia
One of the leaked photos shows the celebration after the ceremony, with Princess Leonor and her mother, Queen Letizia.
The photo is a “selfie” that Letizia and Leonor took to keep a souvenir of such a special day.
On the other hand, the newspaper El Heraldo de Aragón confirmed that the King and Queen stayed for a while with their daughter and her companions, although they later left.
The King also spoke privately to the cadets, encouraging them to carry on despite the difficulties of the first month and stating that he had no doubt that many of them would pass their exams.
He also wished them much encouragement and asked them not to falter in the face of difficulties.
“I believe they have a brilliant education ahead of them and a few years of crucial preparation,” concluded King Felipe.
