This September 15, 2021 marks the 49 years of Queen Letizia of Spain. However, the 15-year-old Princess of Asturias could not be present during the festivities. Indeed, Princess Leonor is now studying in the UK and will stay there for 2 years. Princess Leonor left Spain on August 30 to continue her International Baccalaureate studies in Britain at UWC Atlantic College. It is a boarding school located in Wales and the princess would have already taken her ease at the castle of Saint-Donatus.
That feeling of missing a loved one from Queen Letizia on this day was surely exacerbated by the death of her grandmother during the summer. Recall that his grandmother, Menchu Alvarez de Valle, died last July. In addition, his stepfather, King Juan Carlos is also absent in the country. Indeed, the king will remain in Abu Dhabi in order to defend himself against legal accusations.
“A birthday, a day off”
Queen Letizia’s birthday party comes right after returning from journalism college. The day before her birthday, the Queen had attended the 50th anniversary ceremony of the Faculty of Information Sciences. This is the institution where she studied.
In addition to being her birthday, September 15 was a day off for the Queen. Indeed, the Casa Real website shows that this is the only day of the week when the wife of King Felipe V has nothing planned on her official program. The sovereign’s wife resumed her commitments on Monday, September 6 after a summer vacation. Since her return, the queen had chained the engagements.
