King Felipe and Queen Letizia says Goodbye to Princess Leonor at Airport

There were emotional scenes at the airport on Monday as King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain waved off their eldest daughter, Princess Leonor, as she left to start college in the UK.

The 15-year-old, dressed in a striped T-shirt and navy trousers, said goodbye to her parents and her younger sister, Infanta Sofia, 14, as she prepared to board her flight from Adolfo Suarez Barajas Airport in Madrid.

Leonor will study for her International Baccalaureate at the UWC Atlantic College in Llantwit Major, Wales, for the next two years.

Queen Letizia, wearing a grey ensemble, was pictured embracing her daughter in a hug before Leonor passed through the departure gate.

The princess, who is the heir to the Spanish throne, also hugged her father goodbye and they appeared to smile at one another under their face coverings.

Leonor carried her three pieces of luggage, including a tan satchel, a large backpack and a carry-on suitcase as her family waved her off.

She will be joined at the college by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of The Netherlands' second child, Princess Alexia, 16.

The Dutch royal family shared a photo of Alexia as she prepared to leave for the UK, also on Monday.

The image, taken by the king, showed the young royal wearing a red and black checked jacket with ripped pale blue jeans and white trainers as she held two large bags and a face covering outside the royal family's home, Huis ten Bosch Palace, in The Hague.

Notable alumni include King Willem-Alexander and Princess Raiyah bint Al-Hussein of Jordan. Princess Elisabeth of Belgium, 19, also graduated from the college in May 2020.
