Birth 

During the reign of her paternal grandfather, King Juan Carlos I, Leonor was born on October 31, 2005, at 1:46 a.m. in the Ruber International Hospital in Madrid by means of a cesarean section that was required due to the lack of progression of labor. Her parents at the time, Felipe and Letizia, were the prince and princesses of Asturias. Her birth occurred during King Juan Carlos I’s reign. She was an infant and the second in line of succession to the Spanish throne because she was the daughter of the apparent heir to the throne of Spain. The news of her birth was sent out to the press via text message by the royal family.

On November 7, 2005, Leonor was discharged from the Ruber International Hospital along with her parents. On January 14, 2006, she was christened in the Zarzuela Palace by the Archbishop of Madrid, Antonio Rouco Varela, who also served as her sponsor. As was the case with her father, Princess Leonor of Spain was baptized in the same Romanesque baptismal font that has been used to christen Spanish princes since the 17th century. The water used for the ceremony came from the Jordan River.

Her paternal grandparents, King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia, stood in the role of godparents for her.

She was given the name Leonor de Todos Los Santos as a tribute to all of the saints.

Education and activities 

Leonor started her schooling at the Escuela Infantil Guardia Real, which was essentially a daycare for the children of members of the Spanish Royal Guard. The 15th of September, 2008 marked the beginning of her first year of primary school at the Santa Maria de los Rosales School in Aravaca, which is located just outside of Madrid. Her older brother graduated from the prestigious private school where she currently attends, and her younger sister, Sofia, is also a student there. Mandarin is one of the languages that Leonor has studied in addition to Spanish and English, the latter of which she picked up from her British nanny as well as from her grandmother, Queen Sofia.

Leonor paid her first official visit to the San Javier Air Force base in the province of Murcia in the month of May 2014.

On June 18, 2014, King Juan Carlos signed the instrument of abdication. The following day, on June 19, 2014, at the stroke of midnight (18–19 June 2014), Leonor’s father ascended the throne becoming King Felipe VI, and Leonor became his heir presumptive and Princess of Asturias. King Juan Carlos abdicated his throne on June 18, 2014.

The succession to the Spanish throne is governed by a system of male-preference cognatic primogeniture, as stated in the Spanish constitution of 1975. This means that Leonor, the eldest of Felipe’s two daughters, is first in line to inherit the throne because she is Felipe’s older daughter. However, if her father were to have a legitimate son while he was still the king, Leonor would be displaced in the line of succession and would once again become an Infanta of Spain. This is because the law as it currently stands. However, the birth of Leonor, followed by that of her younger sister Sofia, stalled these plans. There have been discussions about changing the succession law to absolute primogeniture, which would allow for the inheritance of the eldest child, regardless of sex. As of the year 2022, no legislation that affects the succession to the throne has been passed into law, despite the fact that in 2009 the preference for male heirs was changed for Spanish titles of nobility to absolute primogeniture.
