Coinciding with the final stretch towards her coming of age, a documentary will be released that reviews the most relevant moments in the life of Princess Leonor through her 18 years.
On Tuesday, October 31, in addition to her birthday, Princess Leonor will swear allegiance to the Constitution in a solemn ceremony at the Congress of Deputies.
Princess Leonor’s documentary
The audiovisual will be produced by RTVE, “Leonor, 18 years in 18 moments” analyzes the key milestones of the heiress to the throne from her birth to the present day.
These include events such as her first day at school, her role in the line of succession, the Princess of Asturias Awards when she gave her first speech, and her education abroad.
Through these moments, royal experts and figures close to Leonor reflect on her evolution, personality, and the significance of each stage in her preparation as the future queen of Spain.
One of the aspects that stands out the most is the transformation of the Princess of Asturias since her departure to Wales, where she studied high school at UWC Atlantic College boarding school.
“She left as a preteen and has returned as a girl on her way to maturity,” says the documentary’s director Caridad Riol.
Spanish journalist Nieves Herrero stresses that Leonor has understood that it’s not enough to be born into royalty: “You have to earn it and now it’s her time.”
Next week we will see her take a firm step on that path when she swears the Constitution on her 18th birthday.
This documentary allows us to delve into the figure of the heiress not only as a future Queen but also as a young woman who grew up in the eyes of the Spanish people, always with her eyes set on the duty she will have to fulfill in the future.
