Princess Leonor of Spain Attended Her First Solo Royal Engagement—& She Was a Total Pro

Princess Leonor of Spain may only be 15 years old, but that doesn’t mean she needs total parental supervision.

Yesterday, the teenager proved that she’s mature beyond her years by attending her very first solo engagement. Princess Leonor carried out her royal duties and visited the Cervantes Institute in Madrid to celebrate the facility’s 30th anniversary.

Princess Leonor wore a patterned dress by Spanish fashion designer Poète, which features a button-down front, long sleeves and ruffles along the skirt. She accessorized the look with a pair of black kitten heels and a face mask (natch).

During the visit, Princess Leonor presented a print-out of the Spanish Constitution, which she read during her first public speech back in 2019. She also gave the Cervantes Institute her copy of Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, which is a go-to for the Spanish royal family.

Princess Leonor is the oldest daughter of King Felipe and Queen Letizia, which makes her the heir to the throne. The royal has one younger sister, Infanta Sofía.

Later this year, Princess Leonor will move to the U.K. to study at the UWC Atlantic College in Wales. She’ll be joined by another famous royal at the prestigious university: Princess Alexia of the Netherlands.

Welp, they grow up so fast.
