I think both girls look very nice with Sofia looking better overall. Her dress and coat are a little short but the fit and colours are flattering and she looks stylish in an age appropriate way. Leonor also looks cute but IMO the dress and cardigan combo is more fitting for a young child, not a girl going on 12.
I agree with you regarding Leonor's dress. I have noticed that she is dressed still in a child-like way, as there have been a number of previous occasions where her younger sister has looked more grown-up than her, fashion wise, IMO. Now, I'm not critiquing Leonor nor am I saying that she should be forced to dress like an older girl (because who knows, she might still like wearing younger styled clothes), as she is still nearly twelve, so she's not exactly a teenager yet. But I'd just like her to be dressed in a little more of a grown up way from time to time. I do like what she wears and think Letizia has always dressed the girls charmingly, but something that's more for Leonor's age on her would be even better next time. Having said that, her dress is still nice and I love that colour - she rocks red just like her mother

Sofia's coat is very stylish. I wouldn't mind it for myself

I do agree. But, remembering my own daughters and granddaughters at that age, that might very well be Leonor's choosing. Many a mother that has gone thru this age/stage knows exactly what I mean. Parents will have to pick their battles. Me, as long as clean, neat and presentable, OK. Left the tug of war for more important issues. I feel that maybe Leonor's personality is completely different from her sister's. One content in her life now the other can't wait to grow up. All kids different even by same parents and living in same homes with same opportunities. I will say that they both seem to have lovely manners in public. Who knows behind closed doors.

It is probably more to do with Leonor choosing it, like you've said. The Spanish princesses are always dressed well and appropriately. They have a wardrobe many young girls would kill to have and always look neat and well presented.

I wouldn't say Leonor's dress is "too young" for her. I think Lady Louise was a little girl who was dressed in clothes that were often too young for her. Thankfully that period seems to have finished and Sophie saw the light. I would never say Leonor's clothes are not age appropriate. I think out of all the royal princesses, the Spanish girls are by far the best dressed.

Ingrid Alexandra looks really great. I like her hair and her outfit was very well put together; like that scarf she added. She has grown so much lately, so she's as tall as her grandma and probably will grow more.

She does look very grown up and stylish! How old is she now? Ingrid Alexandra has actually always reminded me of Queen Mathilde in some way - she seems to have the same calm, pleasant manner.

Nice to see that we're on the same page. Yes, I also agree with you, part of this could be Leonor's choice. She might still like to wear this particular style - though most girls her age are still experimenting their styles when it comes to fashion (although I do know a couple who had a clear style around this age and still have that same style now), so, as you have said, who knows what goes on behind closed doors and what Leonor may choose to wear in the future.

Thankfully that period seems to have finished and Sophie saw the light. I would never say Leonor's clothes are not age appropriate. I think out of all the royal princesses, the Spanish girls are by far the best dressed.


Louise is a bit different though as the particular way she has been dressed is the traditional way for the BRF. Princess Beatrice and Eugenie had a similar style when they were Louise's age and younger, and so do the other royal children/and so did the other royals when they were children. I'm not saying that Leonor is unfashionable, because, well, after all, Letizia is her mother! Leonor often wears lovely clothes but some have appeared to be a few years too young to her for me, that's all.

Vincent with the one cuff in and one out is such a boy. Mary (I assume it is Mary, but it might be Fred, who knows) helps them make good style choices. I'm convinced they get a "choice of three - which do you prefer?" when these public events are being planned. There is always a tonal/color coordination but also consideration for what will photograph well, what will work in the weather and what's cool with kids. I like how this family parents re: clothing choices. Nice boots on the girls. I'm a bit jealous.
