Is that Sofía next to Leonor? She's almost as tall as her older sister, I reckon she might even become taller than Leonor with time. They've really grown a lot since last time I saw them.

I agree- both of the Infantas are getting very tall especially Sofia- she and Leonor look as though they're the same hight now... I see that they take after their father . Their cousin Irene is also getting quite tall as well IMO.

I think you might be right, I'm looking forward into seeing more pictures of them this year- it's a shame they didn't attend the Olympics, could you imagine how cute their little outfits would have been? The Infantas always have lovely and expensive-looking clothes.

Sofia & Leonor almost look like twins now. Sofia will be a tall, strong build girl with her father's height. Leonor seems to have inherited the more delicate structure of her mother. Irene is the female version of Inaki, look wise.

It's amazing how the girls are the same height yet Leonor is almost 2 years older than Sofia. Sofia is going to be tall like her father I think.

maybe Sofia will reach 1,80 (5' 11")? like her aunt Cristina, which is taller than her older sister.
Leonor will probably surpass 1,70 (5' 7"), regardless of what height they'll have, i think both will be taller than Letizia.

If Sofia is unlucky, she will pass the 1.90 m like her father. 1.80 is already tall for a woman, considering they often wear heels or have to wear heels eg with dresses. Cristina was lucky to marry such tall man like Inaki, therefore she doesnt appear to be as tall as she actually is.

So, despite Uncle Inaki, looking around sportsguys like handballer, basketballer is not wrong for the girls when chosing their boyfriends.

hola reveals details on how leonor and sofia are being educated:

Quote:
they receive Mandarin classes twice a week and now they can sing songs, name body parts and pronounce the letters in this language. They have an English nanny since birth, letizia reads to them stories in English and Queen Sofia speaks to them, like with her children, in this language.
the cover page also says that leonor (maybe sofia also) takes ballet classes and that she will most likely attend military training and receive education abroad, just like it happened with felipe.

Thank you!

About the Mandarin classes, that was known long ago, but its nice to know that they are making progress with it, because that language is a very dificult one! And I will always believe that it was wise of Felipe and Letizia to let their daughters learn a "unusual" language other than the European languages, Bravo!

About English, it was obvious they were raised with english as well, like many other royal kids, but I didn't know they had a English nanny.

As for ballet, It was obvious Leonor took classes of it, she has that delicate charisma and elegant pose.

Many tabloits say that Letizia is strict on their education, I don't think that, like many other parents, either father or mother like to educate well their children and are concern with their enviroment and learning methods. So far I see what most parents will do their children, Letizia is not educating them to extremes.

Those girls are so precious in their dresses. Similar but not identical.
