Infanta Leonor of Spain (Leonor de Todos los Santos de Borbón Ortiz; born 31 October 2005) is the elder of the two daughters of Felipe, Prince of Asturias, and Letizia, Princess of Asturias. Leonor is second in the line of succession to the Spanish throne after her father and according to the Spanish Constitution of 1978, she will become Princess of Asturias and eventually Queen of Spain if her parents do not produce a male heir. As daughter of the heir-apparent to the throne, she is an infanta of Spain with the style of Royal Highness. Her younger sister, Infanta Sofía, follows her in the line of succession.
Infanta Leonor was born at 1:46 am in the Ruber International Clinic in Madrid by means of a caesarean section necessitated by non-progression of labour. Her birth was announced by the Royal Family to the press via SMS. Leonor left the Ruber Clinic with her parents on 7 November 2005.
The Infanta was baptised in the Zarzuela Palace by the Cardinal Archbishop of Madrid, Antonio Rouco Varela, on 14 January 2006. Like her father in 1968, Leonor was baptised with water from the river Jordan, following the Spanish Royal Family tradition. She was also given the additional names of de Todos los Santos (of All the Saints), a Bourbon tradition. Her godparents were her paternal grandparents, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.
Infanta Leonor began her education at the daycare for the children of the Spanish Royal Guard.
She began her first year of real schooling on 15 September 2008 at the Santa María de los Rosales School in Aravaca, just outside Madrid. Her father is an alumnus of the school.
In December 2012, Infanta Leonor and her sister attended the musical The Sound of Music in Madrid with their family. In the summer of 2013, Infanta Leonor and Infanta Sofía were seen on holiday in Palma de Mallorca. They attended the Copa del Rey with their cousins, mother and grandmother. Later, they were seen at La Granja in Esporles, Mallorca.
