Princess Leonor and her sister, Infanta Sofia, did not miss the opportunity to meet Harry Styles during his show in Madrid.
On the electrifying night of July 14, Harry Styles set Madrid’s Iberdrola Music stage on fire, leaving hundreds of fans screaming and swooning with excitement during his “Love On Tour” show.

Leonor and Sofia at Harry Styles concert in Spain
Among the audience were two distinguished guests of Spanish royalty, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia, who did not hesitate to witness the musical talent of the British heartthrob. Both teenagers were accompanied by their mother, Queen Letizia.
Privileged as they are, the royal sisters even had the opportunity to meet the musical idol in his dressing room before the show.
News of their presence at the concert and private meeting initially leaked on social media, with a TikTok video capturing the apparent arrival of Spanish royalty in three armored vehicles at the Iberdrola Music venue.
The recording shows the arrival of a black car with dark windows and further back two vans with the same characteristics that would have entered the site at 16:53 pm at full speed, at which time Harry Styles was still in the dressing room.

As is often the case with such high-profile appearances, the presence of Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia generated criticism from the public.
However, many defenders of the royal family pointed out that it is natural for princesses to receive special treatment due to their status and security concerns.
“It’s just that there were a lot of people on social media who were complaining about the treatment of the royal daughters for being able to have that meeting. They also complained that they didn’t have to wait in line and had to be escorted, that’s the reality of the girls since they were born,” commented journalist Lorena Vázquez, from the Spanish program “Espejo público” of the Antena 3 channel.
Meanwhile, another of the show’s collaborators commented that “you can’t put a girl who is going to be queen of Spain in line”. “There are controversies that make no sense.”
It was not the first time that the princesses enjoyed a Harry Styles concert. Last year they also attended a show of the Briton and there was no criticism.
Similarly, when the youngest of the Bourbon sisters, Infanta Sofia, accompanied her mother Letizia to a private meeting with Chris Hemsworth on the popular Spanish show “El Hormiguero,” there was hardly any controversy surrounding their special treatment.
