Insane, have they grown up. Leonor and Sofía, the two daughters of Queen Letizia and King Felipe VI. of Spain, are now going their own way. During a joint visit to the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres in Catalonia, they appeared in front of the cameras without their parents - and were nastily booed, as we show in the video above.
In the Dalí Theatre-Museum
As the sisters reached the museum, boos rang out in the background. But the two didn't let that deter them. They were given a tour of the museum in preparation for the Princess of Girona Foundation Awards ceremony taking place in Barcelona on Monday. This was announced by the royal family in a statement.
Princess Leonor wore a dress by Mango
Princess Leonor wore a red and white patterned, midi-length dress with puff sleeves from the Spanish fashion chain Mango. She tied it at the waist with a belt of the same color. In addition, the 16-year-old combined classic lace-up espadrilles in white. The heir to the throne wore her hair loose and only gathered the front sections behind her head.
Her sister, Princess Sofía, who is one year younger, opted for a slightly shorter dress by Claudie Pierlot. The creamy-white dress featured intricate black stitching and embroidery. The ruffled skirt was slightly gathered from the thigh. Just like her sister, the princess wore espadrilles, albeit with black fabric. She had braided the front sections of her hair into mini pigtails.
First visit of the heir to the throne in Girona
It was apparently the first visit to the province of Girona for the heir to the throne Leonor. Since the coronation of King Felipe, the 16-year-old has also held the title of Princess of Girona. On Monday she will attend the awards ceremony in Barcelona with her parents and sister.
Since 2021, Leonor has been attending a boarding school in Wales in order to obtain an internationally recognized Abitur there. Since then, appearances like this have become rather rare.
