After some months without news about Princess Leonor’s alleged affair with a fellow student at the UWC Atlantic College in Wales, the German press has recently published more information about the young man in question.
It was last year when on the birthday of his grandmother, Paloma Rocasonalo, photos of a young man together with the Princess of Asturias were circulated.
The Spanish media reported at the time that the princess’ alleged boyfriend was a fellow student who is of Brazilian and American origin and was a couple of years older than Leonor.
However, the Royal House closed ranks and no further details were leaked. The princess was later linked to soccer player Pablo Gavi and even to a Moroccan prince because of the necklace in Arabic letters that she has worn on two occasions.
What is the name of Princess Leonor’s Boyfriend?
Now, it has been the German magazine ‘Bunte’ who has released new details of the young man who stole the heart of the future queen of Spain.
The publication reported that Leonor’s “close friend” is 18 years old and his name is Gabriel. In addition, they also indicated that he is “the son of a millionaire couple from Brazil and grew up in New York”.
They add that his mother is successful in advertising and his father works as an investment banker for Deutsche Bank, a German entity.
Gabriel’s father allegedly has a PhD in Philosophy from one of the elite universities in the United States and is “recognized as an expert in the international financial sector”.
This German media assures that “the family lives in an elegant apartment building on the Hudson River”, near Wall Street, and adds that “Gabriel went to a private high school in Brooklyn”, where some of “the children of rock stars and supermodels” also attend.
Among his interests are playing soccer, practicing lacrosse, and taking art classes. Like Princess Leonor, she speaks several languages including English, Portuguese, and a little German, since, the publication specifies, her father “has numerous colleagues in Germany.”
Little is known if Princess Leonor and the mysterious young man are still together, especially because since August, the heiress have to complete another step in her royal training and enter the Military Academy.
Who is Gabriel Giacomelli?
At the tender age of 18, Gabriel Giacomelli has already lived a life rich in experiences spanning continents. Born to Brazilian parents (father an investment banker at Deutsche Bank and mother an advertising executive), Gabriel has grown up in a family with a strong financial background, though not yet a millionaire.
Growing up in New York City, Gabriel has cultivated a tapestry of interests and skills. His educational itinerary took him to an elite boarding school in Brooklyn, where he honed his soccer and lacrosse skills while developing a deep appreciation for art.
A budding polyglot, Gabriel is fluent in Portuguese and English and has a working knowledge of German, a linguistic prowess that reflects his family’s global outlook.
A royal romance
Gabriel and Leonor’s paths crossed in the historic halls of UWC Atlantic College, where rumors of a budding romance began circulating shortly after Leonor’s 2021 admission. The school, which admits students between the ages of 16 and 19, became the setting for a love story that seems straight out of a fairy tale.
Their relationship, reports German magazine Bunte, blossomed naturally, with the couple finding common ground in their language skills and, perhaps, in their shared experiences of living in a multicultural world.
As the young couple stands on the threshold of adulthood, the future remains a canvas of uncertainty and potential. As Leonor sets out to continue her path in the Spanish military academies, embracing a tradition championed by her father, King Philip, Gabriel plans to return to New York to continue his education.
In a world that constantly seeks confirmation, the young couple remains tight-lipped about their relationship, allowing them to enjoy precious privacy in their formative years. As they forge their individual paths, the world can only hope that their bond will stand the test of time and the pressures of a real life and an ever-watching public eye.
