Given the shoes Queen Letizia favors, I would say Sofia (in flats) is taller.

To me, Sofia seems to take after her mom, just with her father's height, and Leonor reversed.

I wonder if Leonor will stay two feet shorter than papa? It's rather adorable.

I'd say that for a long time Sofia has looked like the more mature/older one of the sisters - except for moments where Leonor had to act in her role as 'Princess of Asturias'.

Despite their looks, Leonor's voice is more mature than Sofia's voice. Sofia still has that child high pitched tone, while Leonor's voice is deeper.

I watched a video about Leonor giving a speech once and was quite surprised when I hear her voice, it's deeper than I thought.

I wonder if we won't see Leonor and Sofia in the upcoming days. Today is only Felipe's engagement. I believe tomorrow is the day off. Then, they'll have Friday for Menorca if I recall it correctly (I saw the schedule once, and I didn't memorize it). But, Leonor and Sofia aren't listed for the Menorca visit.


I do wonder if we will see the usual Marivent photo session this year.

It has already been reported that this year there will be no traditional photo shoot in Marivent.
I hope we can still see Leonor and Sofia in the next few days.

Queen Sofia is also in Marivent, so I believe she will be able to see her granddaughters.

I wonder if we might see them all out for dinner or having a walk like with previous years?

Oh I see, thank you


I'm still hoping to see the girls more, on walks or dinner as @An Ard Ri said. But, I would love to see them go with Felipe and Letizia to the other Balearic Islands such as Menorca and Formentera. They aren't listed for the Menorca visit, but who knows about Formentera? Anyone has the schedule for the remaining days?

Honestly, although I would like to see the traditional photo shoot in Marivent, however, I understand the decision to no celebrate it , the family would have to pose with face cover, it would not be beautiful

Plus we've seen more of Leonor and Sofia than we normally do and there have been plenty of really nice photos.

It wouldn't be too hard to invite one photographer or even a few photographers to take pictures of the four of them without face cover. They should be able to keep sufficient distance.

Indeed, just like what happened with WA, Maxima and the girls.


But, yes, we've seen them twice in Mallorca now, which isn't bad considering the current situation. Though I disagree with @An Ard Ri that we've seen them more than we normally do. In 2018, we saw Leonor and Sofia 4 times in August. In 2019, we saw them 7 times. This year, it seems only 2 so far, so we're not seeing them more, but far less.
