So size is everything!
Leonor of Spain celebrated her 18th birthday on October 31st. This brings the Infanta a little closer to her big day – the crown. The Crown Princess will become King Felipe VI in the distant future. (55) inherit. When she came of age, Leonor also took an oath to the Spanish constitution.
But Leonor may be the king’s eldest daughter, but she is not the tallest! At least in terms of measurements, younger sister Sofía (16) is in first place.
The Infanta measures 1.75 meters, a good deal more than her smaller big sister Leonor (1.70 meters). And that at just 16 years old. Is that why Leonor is using her bag of shoe tricks?
When she swore her oath in the Spanish Parliament at the beginning of November, Leonor wore strikingly high heels – which made her tower over her sister.
Especially when they walked next to each other (Sofía was once again wearing flat shoes), this optical effect was hard to miss. And Leonor’s heels were about as high as the centimeters that she lacked compared to her younger sister.
Intention? It was definitely not the first time! Weeks earlier in Oviedo, Leonor resorted to the same remedy as in April.
Neither of the sisters are small for their age. And theoretically they can still grow. After all, her father measures almost two meters! By the way, mother and queen Letizia (51) is 1.70 meters, the same height as her eldest daughter.
But the future queen doesn’t actually have to compensate for anything. Her people and her family love her. Last but not least, the Infanta has numerous talents: horse riding, cello, volleyball and… shooting. Leonor is considered a gifted shooter. She has been completing her three-year military training since August. She is following in her father’s footsteps and is set to become the first supreme commander of the Spanish armed forces.
Little princess really big!
