Felipe seems to be actively interested in preparing his eldest daughter for the throne and revealed last week that she is performing her duties with & # 39; enormous eagerness & # 39; undertook.

In October last year, Felipe was the image of paternal pride when he saw his daughter give her first public speech at an event in Madrid.

Leonor, then 13, took the stage with her father, King Felipe, during an event on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the constitution.

It marked a circle moment for Felipe, who was 13 when he first spoke at the same event in 1981.

In the following months, Leonor appeared on her father's side a number of times.

Leonor addressed an audience in Barcelona and chose to speak in the regional language of Catalan, which she has learned since her childhood.

She finished the look with navy blue ballerinas & a staple in the cupboard for herself and her younger sister Sofia, 12.

Yesterday Leonor was wearing a bold red dress in exactly the same shade as her mother was wearing the day before.

Other go-to pieces for the young princesses are shift dresses with long sleeves and sensible shoes.
