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.
