King Felipe and Queen Letizia will continue their royal duties as Spain bears a hit by a novel coronavirus wave. Spain became the first country in western Europe to register 500,000 coronavirus cases.
Eight million Spanish Children returned to school but unfortunately many were diagnosed with coronavirus. It seems like the second wave hit the country.
Princess Leonor is in the fourth year of secondary education. While her sister Princess Sofia is in the second year at the school.
This summer is challenging for the royal family as the former king Juan Carlos dropped a bombshell disclosure that he was leaving his homeland.
Princess Leonor is considered to be the savior of the monarchy. Leonor made her public-speaking debut at an awards ceremony in Barcelona last November.
In the award ceremony, she gave comments in Spanish, Catalan, English, and Arabic.
