A nice BB article about Princess Sofia turning 14:
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...lg-naermer-sig

Of immediate interest are this lovely portrait: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0

And a few details about her interests, that at least I didn't know about:
She is interested in robot-technology, theater and cooking. As well as being fond of animals.

- It's IMO good that she is interested in technology. That is still not yet a typical "girl-career" but perhaps Sofia can serve as a role-model in just a few years, by taking a technical education.
Just as good IMO is a her interest in theater. Because that suggests that she is not only willing to but like to be "on". I.e. being in front of an audience, which is very much a part of what modern royals do.

Actually, that was said by someone not very reliable (yellow press); We don't know much about Sofía's tastes, except that she seems to love ballet, due to her outings with her maternal grandmother who share the same taste, since both Paloma (the queen's mother) and her daughters Telma and Queen Letizia are great lovers and ballet practitioners.
Ángel Corella, a great Spanish dancer now retired, unfortunately, said that especially Telma, was a splendid dancer.
For the rest, we know absolutely nothing about the likes of Sofía and those things in the article, they have been saying since she was eight years old, which does not mean that it is not true, it is simply an "invention" of the advertising media.

By the way, a mistake on my part: congratulations, belatedly, my sweet and adorable Infanta Sofía: flores:: flores:: flores:

I must say that the interest in cooking is real. In fact, Leonor and Sofía took a cooking course with a very prestigious Spanish "chef" about two or three years ago.
Technical careers among Spanish women are very common and in fact, a very high percentage of women are university students, practically beating men.
Currently, it is very curious, but in fields such as science, women are very relevant, and today it is difficult to find a doctor, since practically the majority of medicine is taken over by women.

Princess of Asturias is not yet known when her confirmation will be held, although Vanitatis can assure you that she will receive the sacrament, as her father has already done.
As with his first communion, his parents want Leonor to celebrate his confirmation with the rest of his schoolmates, the Santa Maria de los Rosales. However, there is a problem. Sources close to the school tell Vanitatis that this sacrament is received by first-grade students.

Leonor and Sofía star in their first solo act

Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofía have work this weekend. The daughters of the Kings will debut on Saturday in their first joint act alone, a month and a half after the Heiress starred in her first engagement without the presence of her parents.

As announced by Casa Real, the young women will comply with the #unarbolporeuropa event that is organized next Saturday on the occasion of World Environment Day.

The event is not chosen by chance, since concern for the environment is one of the main ones of the young people of his generation, who have several activists against climate change. It will be at seven in the afternoon when the young women appear in the Hayedo de Montejo to star in this first act alone and together.

Ohhh! Looking forward to it! A joint event with the two sisters, how nice!


Btw, the event is quite late. Then is it an evening event? But it says it's an informal event. It also seems they will be planting a tree, I think. But the timeline is weird. I thought planting trees would be in the morning or early afternoon, not evening.

That's gonna get a lot of attention.

It's a cause hardly anyone can have reservations about and it's meaningful. I.e. not some mere "cutting-a-ribbon-while-looking-sweet-in-a-dress-event."

The sooner and the more the young royals feel that the work they do actually means something, the better.

Seven in the afternoon in Spain, 19 hours is fully daylight. There is sunlight until after nine o'clock
Before that time, it's very hot

I am curious to see this event. It will be interesting to see the two sisters at a joint event.

Will we be able to follow the event live?

It is very possible that we have video, but until Saturday approaches, we will not know if there is a direct link on Youtube from Casa Real or from another institution
It is an official act, because it is on the agenda. They have put it on the agenda today. There will be video and images

Yes I know, I live in Portugal, so the weather is not that different. But I was talking about the time of the event, not daylight. I thought such events, as planting trees and doing a visit outdoors, were in the morning. That's all

Ah well. You are my "dear neighbor". I love Portugal
Perhaps they will explain to us the reason for the schedule. I don't know, but it's a good time because it's not hot.

Perhaps, they will Or maybe I am eager, because I'll have to wait longer to see pictures and videos of the event. If it were in the morning, I would wake up and see the pictures immediately

And yes, dear neighbor! I also love Spain Mis Hermanos! Never been to Malaga, but I did visit a lot of Spanish cities and landmarks across the years (Sevilha for several times, Toledo, Madrid, Ayamonte, Granada/Alhambra, Sierra Nevada, Jerez, Burgos, Atapuerca, Huelva).

Wow, I see that you have traveled a lot in Spain. It's a pleasure
Málaga is a beautiful and cosmopolitan city. Very big. In recent years we have built a charming city endowed with very beautiful corners ... and a lot of sun hahaha
Granada is my second home, and Madrid my third.
Andalucía is a perfect place to live with very welcoming people, if I may say so.
I love Lisboa, but I haven't had time to go back. I promise to do it more often because I have a lot of lovely Portuguese friends
It is true that we will have to wait to see images of the event, but we will surely love it. Children are always wonderful to watch. Greetings: flores:

The act in which Princess Leonor and her sister Infanta Sofía were going to participate this Saturday afternoon in Hayedo de Montejo has been postponed for meteorological reasons, due to a strong storm alert located in that area. They were going to close the ceremony of the '# AtreeforEurope' campaign, coinciding with World Environment Day.

It is a pity, considering that today was a very special day. I wonder if it is postponed indefinitely or they'd give a date soon?
