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.

There's possibly a delay in Confirmation Services as with other countries due to the Pandemic

The article says that in their school, students celebrate their Confirmation in 1st of baccalaureate (next school year for Leonor) when the princess will be studying abroad. They speculate that she could celebrate her Confirmation on her own this year or return to Spain next year to celebrate with her school.

I am not familiar with the Spanish school system, but would "primero de bachillerato" be equivalent to 11th grade (or junior year) in North America?

Primero de bachiller is equivalent to 11th grade (or Junior year).Right now Princess Leonor is in her fourth year of ESO (10th grade in US)

It depends on whether you have made the confirmation before First Communion, although it is a private matter and they will not tell us anything. Anyway, it would be an intimate act that you can perform at any time in the Zarzuela chapel. There are no big celebrations in Spain for a Confirmation.
All my younger relatives have received their confirmation before First Communion, but it seems that it depends on the dioceses of each Spanish city.
Anyway, the confirmation is not an act that is celebrated (there are no parties or anything like that) in any way for a normal Catholic in Spain
