The news portal El Heraldo de Aragón revealed more details about what happened on Friday night on the reserved second floor of the popular venue.
Half an hour before the arrival of Leonor’s group of friends, her security team arrived at the restaurant, as is customary when a member of the royal family visits a restaurant.
Leonor’s friends arrived around 8:50 p.m., while the princess arrived 20 minutes later.
During dinner, the young ladies, including the daughter of King Felipe and Queen Letizia, enjoyed the restaurant’s signature burger, which includes smoked bacon and caramelized onions.
Leonor added a cookie for dessert and water, and at the end everyone paid their share. The princess left 20.30 euros in cash.
The owner of the restaurant said that everything went as normal as the dinner of any group of girls of that age.
He also mentioned that the classic “Happy Birthday” was played at full volume and that there was no shortage of cake.
For this special occasion with her friends, Princess Leonor opted for a casual style, wearing blue jeans, white sneakers and a black sweater.
