Princess Leonor will follow in her father’s footsteps: military training and law

During the last days it is being revealed what the future of the daughters of the Kings will be like, the princess eleanor and the Infanta Sofia. The first information indicated that the youngest daughter of the monarchs wants to follow in her sister’s footsteps and move to Wales to pursue the international baccalaureate at UWC Atlantic College. Now, It is also discovered that the heiress to the Crown will follow those of her father, the king philipand will do military training, in addition to studying the Law Degree. All this will happen once the current course in Wales is over, so it will be a decisive year for the young woman who will pack her bags again next year. But, how is the future of Leonor?


The school year will end on May 20, 2023, which will be when the Princess ends her studies abroad to make way for a new stage in her life: military training. This is common among future queens and heads of state. In fact, the last to do so was Elisabeth of Belgium, who spent a year in the army before starting the degree she is currently studying, History and Politics at the University of Oxford, at Lincoln College.

As ‘El País Semanal’ has advanced, Leonor will do her military training at the Air Force academies in San Javier (Murcia); that of Earth, in Zaragoza and, finally, that of the Navy in Marín (Pontevedra). “It will culminate sailing on the Juan Sebastián de Elcano school ship,” adds the publication about the heiress’s plans. Precisely as her father, King Felipe VI, did in the past. It is not surprising that the youngest daughter of the King and Queen receives military training, since, according to the Constitution, Leonor will assume command of the Armed Forces, including the Army, the Air Force and the Navy, when she ascends the throne.

Later, according to the aforementioned media, Leonor will begin a career with “law as the backbone”. At the time, King Felipe VI studied Law at the Autonomous University of Madrid, so it would not be surprising for Princess Leonor to do the same at a Spanish university. This fact would already take place the following year, in 2024. Meanwhile, Leonor will be preparing to become the next Queen of Spain.

Over the last few months, much has been rumored about the possibility that Eleanor would do as Elisabeth of Belgium, who opted for a reduced military formation. Nevertheless, from Casa Real they want to bet on a complete training for the heiress to the throne and for the same route that her father made at the timeat that time, Prince of Asturias.

When is Princess Eleanor’s birthday?

On October 31, he will be 17 years old.
