• Faith Princess Leonor's confirmation: the King as her godfather, dressed in street clothes and with her schoolmates

The Infanta Sofia celebrated her confirmation on Thursday, May 24, in the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption, in the Madrid neighborhood of Aravaca. Two years after the Princess of Asturias received the sacrament through which the faith is confirmed, the Infanta has done so in a similar ceremony and in which once again the King has served as godfather, as he did with Princess Leonor.

The most intimate album of Princess Leonor's graduation

Twenty minutes after twelve o'clock in the morning, the Infanta Sofia arrived at the parish of Asunción de Nuestra Señora de Aravaca accompanied by her parents, her sister and her grandparents, Queen Sofia, Paloma Rocasolano and Jesús Ortiz, who was accompanied by his wife, Ana Togores.

Upon arrival, the Kings have first posed with their daughters. A few seconds later, Princess Leonor has run to ask her grandmother Sofia to join the photo. The Heiress has been very attentive to her paternal grandmother, and they have entered the temple embraced.

For the family photo, Ana Togores has retired.

The Family has agreed to dress in shades of pink. Thus, the protagonist of the day has chosen a set of trousers and fuchsia shirt. Her sister Leonor, a pink printed dress. Queen Letizia, white trousers and pink blouse, while Queen Sofia, black and American trousers printed in pink tones.

Asked if she was nervous, the Infanta hesitated with her head and said: "Well."

In that of other friends

The Infanta already knew how the ceremony was going to be, because the day before, on Tuesday, she had gone to the temple as a guest of other friends who were confirmed.

Doña Sofía occupied a bench like the rest of the guests and at the end of the ceremony she congratulated and took pictures with her friends.

The difference between the ceremony of Sofia and Leonor is that when the Princess was confirmed there were still restrictions. At that time, only parents and siblings could go and indoors you had to wear a mask. On this occasion, there are no restrictions and the number of guests has been increased to godparents, grandparents, uncles and nephews.

The confirmation has meant the reappearance of the Princess in Spain after her graduation in Wales. The family gathered in Britain last Saturday to celebrate the end of Leonor's school years and returned together to Spain.

The sisters have three months to be together, because in mid-August each one will set course for her new destination. The Princess will enter Zaragoza on August 17 to begin her military career. The Infanta, for her part, will follow in the footsteps of the Heiress and will go to study the baccalaureate in Wales.
