Princess of Asturias was on an excursion with her school in Santo Domingo de la Calzada (La Rioja) from October 16 to 19

Like last year, Leonor and Sofia will attend a camp in the US in the month of July

Interesting, it seems that Leonor and Sofia's time at the summer camp last year was a success if they're returning this year too.

Probably their parents see it as an opportunity for the girls to improve their English skills. Having an English-speaking governess would be more effective in my opinion, but maybe that suggestion wouldn't sit well with the Spaniards.

"English speaking governess" sounds a bit like we're talking about 100 years ago.

Apart from practicing English I imagine a big draw would be the chance to spend some extended time with kids their age from a different culture who don't care that they're princesses of Spain all that much. And doing all the fun camp activities that are why regular kids go as well.

I am pretty sure they have an english speaking governess at home since the day they were born. Leonor and Sofia will have grown up as native english speakers, it has been mentioned in the media a long time ago. They are also reported to speak english with their grandmother.

So the republic is also archaic because it has been around for over 100 years.

Sorry but I could not resist.

The Spanish media is now pointing out how a little shy Leonor is compared to her sister Sofia as seen on her body language and the tone of her voice. This is right after their hospital visit to their grandfather King Emeritus Juan Carlos I.

Leonor and Sofia resembles each other so much. Sometimes it is very difficult for me to recognise who is Leonor and who is Sofia.

They are so lovely young girls. Felipe and Letizia can be very proud of them.

Leonor has blue eyes, Sofia brown. And Leonor's teeth look more childish than her younger sister's. The first thing is seen usually with good zoomed photos, but the second is better seen as they almost always smile widely.
