I thought Victoria Federica was at St. Mary's in Ascot (England), though it obviously appears that she is back at school in Spain now. It's interesting that she is attending a British school there though, Infanta Elena must like the British education system. I guess she will do GCSEs instead of the Spanish exams then.

I really wish the press would stop commenting about her weight! Hopefully Victoria Federica doesn't see those articles...

For her age it's not abnormal to be lanky (skinny) especially for her height. I'm sure she'll gain some weight as her body develops more. The problem is as soon as she starts to gain weight there will be criticism about her gaining weight.

I think it's very irresponsible of the press to write these sorts of articles about the young royals. Even if Victoria doesn't read the articles herself, I'm sure people around her (friends, kids at school, neighbors, etc) will. I hope these articles don't damage her self-esteem. She seems to be a lovely young lady and the press will write about this until their is something else for them to write about.

I do think Victoria is very thin but as many have said, that's nothing to be worried about. Every child is different and Victoria will soon enter the puberty phase, which is a awkward, and often embarassing situation. Then, her body will start change as nature rules. I hope the weight issues for children and teen become a non topic and the press should just keep their mouth shut..

Victoria is thin but very, very tall, like her father, so maybe things look different in a few years.
Vanitatis says that Victoria had excellent grades in GB and continues her education in Spain while Frolian went to a military academy in Florida

It seems that Doña Victoria Federica de Marichalar attendance at a Bullfight has caused a bit of trouble as she is under 16 and its against the law.

I don't understand how some parents let their children see these bullfights, princess, princes or not.

I had no idea there was an age requirement to attend the bullfight - is that just a local law? Aren't the bullfights shown on TV on Sunday afternoons?

Depends on the region. In most areas it seems, some you have to be 12. As for shown on TV, so are age restricted movies and shows, leave it to parents to supervise what is watched at home.

Palma has been facing increasing pressure from protestors who want to shut it down all together to crack down on kids going.

I didn't know that in Spain there was a minimum age for bullfighting. In Portugal there is. I find it strange that this law exists, the Infanta Elena take their underage daughter to bullfighting.

I don't think Elena worries much. She and JC are fans of bullfighting and they are the royal family. Royal kids do a lot of things that are not 'normal' for other kids.

I've never seen Queen Sofia at the bullfights, Letizia went two or three times in the beginning but stopped going. Felipe rarely goes but hasn't stopped completely probably because as King he is expected to respect tradition. I think he went last year for the last time when he became King.

And the Infanta Cristina? She got to go some times?

I can't recall seeing her at a bullfight, ever, very much like her mother. I remember to read that both are vegetarians and do not condone killing an animal.

Yes it seems King Juan Carlos and Infanta Elena are the only bullfighting fans in the family,I don't ever recall seeing Queen Sofia attend one.
