“She looks so ready in uniform,” writes Color Ink Hello magazine Saturday night.
They refer to recent photos of Spain's Crown Princess Leonor, 18, who made her official military royal debut with her parents King Felipe and Queen Letizia on Saturday.
The Spanish magazine writes that the tradition dates back to the 18th century and marks the start of the military year hello.
Leonor was heir to the throne after his father Felipe and would one day assume command of the Spanish armed forces. On Saturday, he posed in uniform at the cadet gala of the military academy in Zaragoza, where he is now serving three years of military education.
It will be his second appearance in uniform since National Day on October 12, but this will be the first time he will wear the light blue silk ribbon of the highly-regarded Order of Carlos.
Several foreign newspapers pointed out that the crown princess “wore the uniform with great confidence”.
Ingrid creates speculation
Leonor turned 18 on October 31 last year, the year after our own Princess Ingrid Alexandra was born in 2005.
The 19-year-old Norwegian princess will serve her first service at Brigade Nord in Indre Dromm and will be heading to Camp Skjold any time soon.
Recently, there has been a lot of discussion on social media about what Princess Ingrid Alexandra's uniform will have – the surname will appear on the nameplate.
– Before getting an answer, we will have to wait in anticipation until the princess begins her service, says Se og Hør, Caroline Vagle, a royal family expert to Dagbladet.
– It is reasonable to believe that they were doing it when her father was in the first service. Photographs taken at the time show Crown Prince Haakon written on the nameplate, Wagle further explains.
After high school, Crown Prince Haakon (50) went to command school before spending three years at the Naval Academy in Bergen.
Walkley also points out that another preference for Princess Alexandra was to act like Lennar (18).
– She is now in security and her uniform says Bourbon Ortiz, which is her parents' “last name”. Now, the royal family doesn't really have surnames, but the Spanish royal family belongs to the House of Bourbon and Ortiz is Queen Letizia's maiden name.
