Princess Leonor will turn 18 on October 31st, and although no great celebration is expected, it is known that the gathering will be held in the strictest intimacy.
Princess Leonor’s birthday party generates a lot of expectations, both for the official responsibilities she will assume when she comes of age, and for the presence of the entire Borbón family at this special celebration.
Where Princess Leonor will celebrate her birthday
According to several Spanish media reports, the Crown Princess of Spain will opt for a more discreet and intimate celebration at the Royal Palace of El Pardo, the same place where Felipe’s proposal to Letizia and the pre-wedding gala dinner took place.
It is unusual for Leonor’s private party to be held at the El Pardo Palace and not at the Zarzuela, which is the princess’ official residence with her parents and sister.
However, in the statement of the Casa Real, a private party was announced in the chosen place, which is a space dedicated to institutional events with grand galas and official visits of foreign monarchs and heads of state.
This means that this place has an exclusive security, despite the fact that it has several accesses, including the main entrance and that of visitors and tourists.
The El Pardo Palace has exclusive security. In addition, it is characterized by its important artistic, architectural and historical value and has the capacity to offer high level dinners for up to five hundred people, with a quality service considered as “premium”.
Although the celebration will be private, the occasion and the chosen venue suggest that it will be an event of great importance. After all, this is the party of the future Queen of Spain, where for the first time she will claim the “loyalty” of her entire family.
