Spanish royals on vacation

Spanish Princesses Leonor and Sofia's summer plans revealed: They're headed to the US

Leonor and Sofía will spend part of their vacation at an American summer camp to learn about different cultures

Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofía enjoyed their experience in the US last summer so much that they will repeat plans this year. Sources from the Royal Palace have confirmed the news, pointing out what a great learning experience it was for King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia's two young daughters. Leonor and Sofia will have the chance to meet children from different backgrounds, to make new friends and learn about different cultures. After this experience, Leonor, who will be 14 years old on July 12 and her sister Sofía, who celebrated her 12th birthday in April, will head off to the Spanish island of Mallorca with their parents.

Although Zarzuela Palace did not mention if they will be attending the same camp as last year’s, surely the girls will be counting the days for their exciting trip. As Princess Sofia mentioned last summer, they had an amazing time: "We had so much fun,” she said during the traditional photocall for media in Mallorca, “We played lots of sports and met many kids from other countries.” No time for boredom here! They improved their skills in tennis, sailing, gymnastics, to name a few. They also had the chance to boost their English, a fundamental tool to carry out their future tasks.

Felipe and Letizia want their daughters to experience a diverse learning environment, and this summer camp is the perfect option. The Spanish King lived the same adventure as a kid back in 1980. Along with cousins Prince Pavlos and Prince Nikolaos of Greece, he spent several days living with 200 more children from all over the world in Villanueva de la Vera, a quaint Spanish village.
