Once Leonor has completed her education (which will take several years as first she needs to complete her military training before she attends to her university education), I am sure she will take over attending these inauguration like her father did before her when he was Prince of Asturias.

The King does not attend bullfights "continuously", the King does so once a year as part of an institutional commitment which is to attend the press and charity bullfights at the Madrid fair.

I have never been to a bullfight nor do I like them nor do I live in a region where they are of interest... but today they are legal in Spain, they are part of the culture, tradition and history of the country and they are important for ranchers and the economy of some regions... therefore the King supports once a year that sector, as he supports many others and without anyone knowing if he really likes them or not.

Juan Carlos, Elena and Victoria do go often in their private time... but it is their private time and their tastes, like many royals who like hunts where they themselves are the ones who kill animals... personally you may like it or not , but as long as it's legal they can do it.
Well thankfully Queens Sofia and Letizia do not attend them!

The bull fights are a horrible spectacle in Spain, Mexico and Peru but you can't say anything because is associated with the culture. And yet, similar practices are in place in other countries that often take a stand against bullfights, like the sadistic fox hunts in the UK, fighting roosters or dogfights in the USA and Latin America, whales living captive in tiny aquariums and dog races where the poor animals are sacrificed after they get old, and no one adopts them.

I always hated bullfights, but also consider a lot of the support for them is from the foreign tourism industry, too where people who visit Spain just wants to see the spectacle live.
