Princess Leonor’s first day at the Military Academy of Zaragoza was a transcendent moment in her life.
Only 17 years old, the young heiress entered this prestigious institution to begin her military training, which would last for the next three years.
From the very beginning, Princess Leonor was determined and ready to face the challenges that awaited her.
On her first day, dressed in a simple blue shirt, white pants, and her hair pulled back in a ponytail, her face reflected obvious nervousness, but also a broad smile. This is how the heiress began her time as a cadet and shared the experience with her classmates.

From physical exercises to theory classes, the young princess demonstrated her resilience and determination.
