King Felipe wore his naval uniform, while his wife looked classy and elegant in a gray dress, which she accessorized with patterned heels. Princess Leonor wore a white coat with a patterned dress and red shoes, while Infanta Sofia wore a red frock with black flats. 

The family of four all wore face masks as they posed for the cameras outside.

The mom-of-two's daughters stuck by her side as they walked around. 

In 2018, Princess Leonor delivered her first public address, and that same year, her father bestowed the Order of the Golden Fleece, making her the youngest female in modern history to receive the award

“This is the meaning of present and future that contains the ceremony that we are celebrating and in which, as Chief and Sovereign of the Order, I have given you the Necklace and the insignias that identify it," he said at the time.

“Your family will always be by your side: especially your mother and also Sofia, who will be with you supporting you; also your grandparents; and of course I, your father, you know that I trust you fully and that I feel enormously proud to have given you this morning the Necklace of the Insigne Order of the Golden Fleece," the father-of-two continued.

In August 2020, someone asked Princess Leonor a very important question — "What do you want to be when you grow up?" 

However, the Princess — who will one day be Queen — did not reply. Instead, her mom answered, saying, "What she has to, not what she wants."
