The former king seems to have had no official acts in some time ,he does seem to attend events with the Infanta Elena mainly.

If Spain is like Portugal, there is no mid term holidays (or the Autumn break) like in the countries of central/north Europe. The next holidays are the Christmas ones.

According to this link, Spain indeed doesn't have mid/half term October breaks unlike England (which is this week - children in Kent and London also have two weeks now at most schools in the area) and a lot of other countries in Europe, nor is it a public holiday in the country, so the children must have been taken out of school to see the musical.

It's nice to see the two Infantas and their children enjoying some time together though. Irene and Victoria seem quite close as they are holding hands in one of the Hola photos - and Irene has grown up so much! She's blossoming into a very pretty young lady.

Miguel and Irene go to school in Switzerland so they may well be in the middle of a half term break.

Irene looks like she’s going to be tall and is very pretty. Miguel doesn’t seem to have inherited his parents’ height, although I guess there’s still time for a growth spurt.

I thought she did very well, she looks small and delicate but has the royal stare down pat. She has presence. Well done! The pride on her parents' faces was touching.

Doesn't this belong into the Royal Family thread?


Leonor did very well, it's a nice touch that another big outing came on her birthday (the golden fleece was delivered on Felipe's 50th birthday).

Very proud of her!!! She did it very well, and she looked at the public sometimes, I sense a great speaker in the future. Her parents were so proud of her.


So when Felipe gave her the order in the begining of the year meant for the start of Leonor's role in the public slowly but surely. Now I believe next year she will be giving the speech at Princess of Asturias Awards. Besides, there are many critics who said previously that Leonor was not "visible" like the other royal children in Europe, but I think that starting this year, Leonor will prove everyone wrong and be the most active royal heir of her generation.

While Leonor did very well today, no way she will deliver the PoA speech before she is at least 18, she's lacking the gravitas to do so, as would any other royal child.

Leonor was safe and she could control her nerves. I think she will from now on be the heirs of her generation, perhaps the most active. I think she may be able to attend the Princess of Asturias Awards next year. She may not read the speech, but she will somehow be present. But it would not surprise me if she reads the speech. It is noted that she is being very well prepared for the position of Princess of Asturias.
And the Kings and the Infanta Sofia were so proud. A very beautiful and united family.

Oh my goodness! She did great! Definitely a reading voice like her mother. And mentioning Letizia, she couldn't have looked any more proud of her daughter. Wonderful.

Leonor is such a star, she did so well. I can't imagine turning 13 and having to speak in front of basically the entire world, but she did fantastic. The pride on Letitia face was priceless.

Not trying to beat an old horse but it really has been bothering me lately how much the King appears to ignore Sofia. I understand Leonor is the Heir and needs his guidance but Sofia seems very uncomfortable and hangs around like the 3rd wheel. I hope in private it is equal and the King only does this because he is helping Leonor prepare for the future. Sofia is such a beautiful girl, just don't want her to start to feel like the "spare".
