Princess Leonor, in the footsteps of Queen Letizia (and Doña Sofía)

Princess Leonor returns to the institutional agenda. The House of HM the King has announced that the eldest daughter of the Kings Felipe and Letizia will participate this Thursday in an important solo engagement. It will be the first time that she has seen Leonor in public since she returned from Wales last weekend, coinciding with the Christmas holidays.

If, during your previous vacations in Spain, you took the opportunity to preside over the acts for the delivery of the Princess of Asturias AwardsOn this occasion, the heiress is going to debut in a new task.

It is not the first time that the Princess has participated in a solo act, but her schedule is becoming more and more intensified. The eldest daughter of the Kings made her solo debut in 2021 in an act at the Cervantes Institute de Madrid and in April 2022 he also participated in another solo engagement at a school in Leganés related to cybersecurity. To this must be added the acts that the Princess has also shared with her sister, the infant sofiawithout the Kings.

The choice of this specific act for the reappearance of Leonor is especially important. Red Cross Youth (CRJ) is the youth section of the Spanish Red Cross, made up of boys, girls and young people between the ages of 8 and 30. Although without its own legal form, Red Cross Youth has the character of a youth association that develops its social commitment through action oriented towards transformation, governed by the Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement: Humanity , Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Character, Unity and Universality.

Volunteers aim to change the world, but they do it in small steps. Change the environment that surrounds us, to obtain a fairer and more respectful society in which to adequately develop our life project as people, through the transmission and education of values, the acquisition of healthy habits and the process of full integration of people.

It is relevant that this commitment has been chosen so that Princess Leonor resumes her agenda. Apart from the fact that it is an act with a markedly youthful and supportive character, the truth is that it connects directly with both Queen Letizia and Doña Sofía. For several years now, the wife of Felipe VI has been the honorary president of the Spanish Red Cross, a position in which she took over from the Queen Sofia. What is not known is when we will be able to see the heiress participating in commitments in which she follows in the wake of her father, given that, when the time comes, it is his footsteps that will have to be followed.
