King Felipe and Queen Letizia Do the School Run as Their Daughters Return to School

Yes, it's that time of year again. The summer holidays have ended which means students prepare to return to school and university for another academic year. For the Spanish royal family, yesterday was about just that; as King Felipe and Queen Letizia brought their daughters Leonor, Princess of Asturias and her sister Infanta Sofia to school for their first day back.

The two girls, aged eight and seven, attend the Santa Marie de los Rosales in Madrid, the same school their father attended as a boy.

Letizia was casually dressed in grey pants, a loose-fitting grey sweater and ballet flats. The Queen appeared to be completely make up free and looked radiant.

Fresh from a month look holiday in Mallorca, Felipe and Letizia have been keeping an incredibly hectic schedule since their return. It's nice to see them enojying normal family moments such as bringing their daughters back to school despite their other commitments.

We'll be seeing a lot of the couple over the next month as their schedule intensifies further.


  1. It's odd to see a King driving! I think we've seen Elizabeth of Britain behind a range rover in the country, but I don't think you see monarchs driving very often. (more efficient to get work done if someone is driving you.)

  2. :) off to school, yes nice to see papa taking kids to school. Sure it's for the photographs but they look like a loving family.

    1. I don't think it's just for the photos they do seem to be a loving family and very down to earth and that is lovely to see! :)

  3. How nice to see the King and Queen taking their girls to their first day of school! They seem to be a very happy, loving family.

    I have to say Queen Letizia is my new fashion favorite. Even when she dresses casually, with no makeup!, she looks great!

    I love Letizia's look too. And when Felipe took the throne, it was interesting to watch her interaction with her daughters, she seems a devoted mum -- her attention was very much on them. And the little infantas are so pretty.
