The Princess of Asturias will be sworn in to the Constitution on October 31, her 18th birthday, in a plenary session of Congress and Senate.
After the act in Congress, Leonor is scheduled to receive the Necklace of the Order of Carlos III at the Royal Palace in the presence of the powers of the State.
This will be followed by a luncheon with a representation of the highest authorities of the State.
After the institutional acts at the Congress and the Royal Palace, a private family celebration will take place at the Palace of El Pardo, which will include the entire royal family.
Victoria Federica doesn’t want to go to Princess Leonor’s birthday
However, according to sources consulted by the Spanish portal Monarquía Confidencial, not all members of King Felipe’s family are willing to attend the family event.
The informants have assured that “Victoria Federica does not want to attend the event with her aunt and uncle because of, family discrepancies”.
King Felipe VI’s attempt to improve relations with his sisters, the Infantas Elena and Cristina, by inviting them along with their children to a family celebration seems will not bear fruit.
The emeritus queen is said to be more affected by this situation and has tried to iron out the differences between her children in various ways.
So far, neither Felipe Juan Froilán nor his sister, Victoria Federica, want to attend the family reunion.
According to sources close to Infanta Elena, Froilán will not be able to attend due to work issues in Abu Dhabi, while Victoria Federica’s reasons are more personal.
It is said that Victoria Federica was annoyed that her uncle, King Felipe put conditions not to coincide with her and her brother during the summer in Mallorca. Much has been said about the bad relationship between the controversial children of the Infanta Elena and the King and Queen of Spain.
In addition, both brothers have barely maintained a relationship with Leonor in recent years.
“They know they are not welcome in the Royal House,” sources say.
King Juan Carlos I will be at the celebration.
Who will not miss the family celebration is the King emeritus Juan Carlos I, who will not miss the opportunity to travel to Spain once again.
The emeritus has not seen and photographed with his granddaughters for 3 years. It will be a good way to resume the family relationship.
