Infanta Sofia on National Day
Since they were little, they have gone together to the protocol events, so tuesday’s celebration will be an additional pressure for her. In 2014 and four months after the proclamation of Felipe VI as King of Spain, it was the first time they attended the national holiday together.
A great moment is expected for Sofia and of course the media will review how she faced this duty, everything indicates that it will be the first of many, while Leonor’s two years of boarding school in the United Kingdom pass.
What does seem to be confirmed is that the sisters will meet again at the next installment of the Princess of Asturias Awards, scheduled for the end of the month and also celebrate Leonor’s birthday on October 31.
