It must have been a rather impressive occasion for the princess, to become a member of the world's most prestigious order at such a young age. The Queen looked magnificent in red.
I would say that Europe's most prestigious (non-ecclesiastical) order today is the Order of the Garter, which is also the oldest, but the Golden Fleece probably comes second.

Unfortunately, with the demise of most of Europe's great monarchies like France, many historical orders are now also forgotten.

It was so lovely to see Leonor receive the new order; everyone seemed to be so proud of her. I loved the outfits she and Sofia were wearing. Hopefully we'll be seeing Leonor at more engagements with her parents as perhaps her new order is a sign of this.
