Princess Leonor, Infanta Sofia Play Increasingly Public Role

Princess Leonor, heir to the Spanish throne, and her sister, Infanta Sofia, have taken an increasingly public role as they prepare to be active members of the Spanish Royal Family.

The Princess of Asturias, 16, and the infanta, 15, have been making more official appearances with their parents — King Felipe and Queen Letizia. But they have also been spending more time in public alone.

The sisters, for example, attended a women’s soccer tournament in Denmark last month.
