Princess Leonor is already following in her parents’ footsteps through her first official act last April. The princess alone chaired the event for the 30th anniversary of the Instituto Cervantes. On July 14, 2021, accompanied by Infanta Sofia of Spain, the Crown Princess attended the event “Un Árbol Por Europa” or “A tree for Europe”. The two sisters were first seen without the company of King Felipe VI and Letizia of Spain. As part of this event, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia prove their commitment to sustainability by planting trees.
We also noticed the casual outfit that Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia opted for for the occasion. They both chose to wear a white t-shirt and a pair of slim denim. To be comfortable in the mountains of Hayedo de Montejo, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia also opted for hiking boots. They dressed casually like any teenager their age. In addition, we can see photos of them planting the trees while collaborating with the young people in their group.
“Promote urban sustainability by planting trees”
The event took place in Hayedo de Montejo, in the mountains, in Madrid. The two sisters were surrounded by other teenagers. The “one tree for Europe” initiative aims to raise awareness among young people about environmental conservation. This initiative was launched by the European Parliament as “a symbol of the fight against climate change and for green town planning”. In addition to educating young people, the ultimate goal of the initiative is to plant more than 25,000 trees.
