This Saturday, October 7, 2023, will be engraved in the memory of Princess Leonor and will go down in Spanish history as the great day when the future Queen swore allegiance to the flag of her country.
In an emotional ceremony in which Queen Letizia and a proud King Felipe could barely hold back tears, Princess Leonor was the first of 410 cadets to kiss the same flag that her father and her grandfather, King Emeritus Juan Carlos, had kissed.
