Spot on! Princess Sofia of Spain, 15, is perfectly poised in a patterned dress as she joins her parents King Felipe and Queen Letizia for National Day celebrations in Madrid

  • Princess Sofia of Spain, 15, looked typically stylish in a polka dot blue dress
  • The royal stepped out with her mother Queen Letizia and father King Felipe 
  • The princess appears to be emulating her mother, who is known for her style  

Her mother Queen Letizia is known for her style prowess, so it’s perhaps no wonder that Princess Sofia of Spain proved to be just as fashionable during a family appearance today.

The princess, 15, looked elegant in an ocean blue patterned dress as she joined her parents King Felipe and Queen Letizia for a military parade in Madrid to celebrate Spain’s National Day.

Her sister Leonor, 16, heir to the Spanish throne, did not attend because she is at boarding school at UWC Atlantic College in Wales. 

Letizia looked typically elegant in a matching polka dot mint green frock for the outing as the family soaked up the pomp and pageantry of National Day. The holiday commemorates Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the Americas in 1492.

Leonor enrolled at UWC Atlantic College in September last year, alongside Princess Alexia of the Netherlands.

They are both on a £67,000, two-year course to study for their International Baccalaureate diploma.

The school, situated in a 12th century castle in the Vale of Glamorgan, offers activities and subjects like Tai Chi and Tibetan literature, leading it to be nicknamed ‘Hippie Hogwarts’.

UWC Atlantic College has a proven track record educating royalty. King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands studied there in the Eighties and Belgian heir to the throne Elisabeth graduated last year.
