Summer camps of this sort are very popular with well off American families, especially in New England, and including children from private schools in NY, Boston and DC. Camps of the sort I imagine the girls are going to will likely have experience with kids who come with security retinues and know how to both cooperate with them and make them as unobtrusive as possible.

OTOH, I suspect none of the camps would allow a governess. A big part of what the camps hope to teach these often very privileged children is self reliance, how to be part of a team, problem solving, etc.

Interesting, thank you for sharing lula. I wonder if this means that Leonor will start to undertake more royal duties (hopefully we'll see her attending an event for the Princess of Girona Foundation soon). I look forward to the event.

Visit to Asturias, September 8, 2018

Leonor, the 12-year-old future Queen of Spain is set to undertake her first official visit to her principality, Asturias, in September. The young Princess of Asturias will travel with her parents Queen Letizia and King Felipe, as well as her younger sister Infanta Sofía to the northwest region of Spain. The visit will reportedly coincide with the Day of Asturias (September 8), during which the royal family will participate in commemorative events.

"Prince or Princess of Asturias" is the substantive title used by the heir apparent to the Spanish throne.

https://us.hola.com/en/royalty/20180...isit-asturias/

On the occasion of the celebration of the 1.300th anniversary of the creation of the Kingdom of Asturias, the Royal Mint has prepared the issue of a collection coin of 30 euros dedicated to the event, showing King Felipe and his daughter and heiress apparent to the throne, Infanta Leonor, Princess of Asturias.

What did Hello! mean by "substantive title"? The title no longer grants any privileges over the principality of Asturias (and Leonor is no longer an Infanta).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Substantive_title

- The title is only officially borne by one person at a time
- The title is ceremonial and confers no political, territorial or civic prerogative as such

I guess it only means the title is particularly given to the heir? (and probably they just copied from wiki as I saw the exactly same sentence appears)

Leonor became Princess of Asturias when her father became King, before her mother was addressed as Princess of Asturias as wife of the Prince of Asturias.
Here has been some discussion going on in a different thread, titles of future husbands, when Leonor gets married and her father is still King, her husband will become Prince of Asturias.

Thanks! I wonder who the wiki definition was written by, as the article does not cite a source to support its definition, which has inconsistencies (for example, the claim that British peerages are substantive titles but substantive titles confers no political or civic prerogatives is contradictory, as in actuality British peerages do confer political prerogatives).

Thanks for the info but I thought we're discussing what "substantive title" in the Hello? article means rather than the title of PoA's consort?

That's why wiki isn't considered as a reliable source for academic use

tomorrow is leonor's birthday and elmundo has an article on her:

https://www.elmundo.es/loc/casa-real...7138b45d8.html

they mention that:

Letizia meets Leonor's tutor once a month in Zarzuela and insists that they force her daughter to speak in public in class to take hold of it. leonor is apparently shy.

she gets good marks at school.

the family usually go hiking in Sierra de Madrid and usually spend a night incognito in a rural hotel.

for her birthday, she usually celebrates with a snack in the New Zarzuela Pavilion, which invites its classmates and some children of friends of their parents. this year cousin Irene Urdangarin may attend. Letizia only sends out invitations to the parties at the last moment, sometimes the same day, to avoid leakages to the press so other mothers of the guests have to hurry to buy their gifts.

Thank you carlota. Leonor sounds like a nice young lady - she has always seemed shyer and more reserved than her sister Sofia, who has always been the more extroverted of the two sisters for me.
I hope she has a lovely birthday.

The coin features a terrible likeness of Leonor.
