princess eleanor He is rushing what will be his last days of vacation with his parents and his sister. Next Friday, August 26, the second classes start at the UWC Atlantic College, the boarding school in Wales where the eldest daughter of the kings is studying for her international baccalaureate, and that is why the heiress is expected to take a flight from Madrid in the middle of next week and will not return to Spain until the end of October, coinciding with the delivery of the Princess of Asturias awards in Oviedo, which on this occasion will be held in the last week of that month to adapt to the school calendar of the British center.
It has been a relatively short vacation for the eldest daughter of Felipe VI and Letizia, since Leonor returned home at the end of June and, although she has had some official commitments, she has not been able to be photographed on too many occasions. The first occasion took place on June 25, when she accompanied the king and queen and the infanta Sofía to the Teatros del Canal in Madrid to attend the show. From Scheherazadeby the choreographer María Pagés, winner of the 2022 Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts, together with the cantaora Carmen Linares. It was the unofficial reappearance of Leonor after her year abroad and she was seen very smiling, with a dress from the Spanish firm Dándara, together with her family. Days later, on July 3, the Princess of Asturias visited Girona for the first time with her sister in what was her first official act; They were at the Dalí Museum in Figueres, where they toured the center dedicated to the painter, and the next day they participated in a morning meeting with young people at the Teatre Albéniz in Barcelona where, in the afternoon, the Princess of Girona awards were presented . In that institutional appointment, with the presence of the Kings, Leonor wore an ashen cut dress in light blue, in which it was probably her most applauded look so far this year.
Soccer, one of the passions of the infanta Sofía, was the “culprit” of an unusual photograph. The heiress and her sister traveled abroad on July 17 to support the women’s team in the European Championship in their match against Denmark. There, at the Brentford Community Stadium in London, the complicity of both sisters could be verified in a more relaxed and informal event and where they did not hesitate to pose with the National Team shirt.
At the end of July, an already essential appointment in the calendar of the Royal Family and which is the last event before starting what are their public holidays in Mallorca. Felipe VI, Letizia, Leonor and Sofía traveled to Santiago de Compostela to participate in the offering to the Apostle Santiago. And now, nothing more was heard of her until that first summer family inn on the island, when they visited the Charterhouse in Valldemossa, a monumental complex that was built in 1309 and was later ceded to the Carthusian monks. Place of rest and meeting, with a great patrimonial and artistic value, for that first image of her holidays in Mallorca, the princess opted for a simple boho dress in white from Sfera and wedge espadrilles with which she walked with some difficulty through the cobbled streets of the municipality anchored in the Serra de la Tramuntana. With no more commitments on the agenda, although for days there was speculation about the possibility that the daughters of the kings had their first act on the island without their parents, Leonor and Sofía only lavished themselves in public on three more occasions, and all of an informal nature. A dinner at the Ola de Mar restaurant, in Portitxol, which, in addition to the Royal Family, was attended by Queen Sofía and her sister, Princess Irena of Greece; another “girls only” evening, with Queen Letizia acting as a guide for the king’s mother and her daughters and the walk through Palma, as if they were just another tourist, of the monarchs, the princess and the infanta. Since that past Wednesday, August 10, no more images of the heiress who, possibly, has enjoyed a few more private vacation days, although without leaving the Marivent palace, because the intention this summer was to “stay home” and not travel to an international destination.
It remains to be seen if before her return to Wales, Princess Eleanor will be seen in public, by way of farewell. She will not return to Zarzuela for another two months.
