The Royal House of Spain published new photos of the Infanta Sofia already installed in the prestigious college.
In the images shared on X (formerly Twitter), the 16-year-old can be seen enjoying the gardens of the imposing property.
Sofia even appears to be carrying some of her luggage as she walks through the gardens of the school, which will be her home until May 2025.
Wearing the same outfit she left Spain in, Sofia was photographed in several areas of the castle.
Supporters of the royal family took the opportunity to express their best wishes and wish her luck in this new stage of schooling.
This wasn’t the first time Sofia had walked the walls of St. Donat’s.
She was at the UWC in May to accompany Princess Leonor at her graduation, an event that featured the royal family in some spontaneous family photos, including a selfie taken by the Queen.
Despite initial doubts, the Spanish press reported that the Infanta will return to her country at the end of October, missing important events for the monarchy such as the Princess of Asturias Awards.
