The Spanish Princesses Will Attend Summer Camp in the United States

Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia are heading stateside this summer.

It may only be the first week of July, but the Spanish royal family is already having a very busy summer. In June, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain visited the White House, and now the Spanish royals are gearing up for another trip in the United States. But this visit won't be about maintaining diplomatic ties between the two countries.

No, this trip is about summer camp.

The Spanish Palace announced today that Felipe and Letizia's two daughters, Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia, will attend summer camp in the United States. The statement revealed the princesses will spend the whole month of July at the camp, among other campers from various countries around the world, Hello! reports. The announcement adds that 12-year-old Leonor and 11-year-old Sofia will acquire "new knowledge and experiences" during the camp session. After the month, Leonor and Sofia will return to Spain.

The young royals will reportedly return in time for the family's annual summer vacation to Palma de Mallorca. That's where Felipe, Letizia, Leonor, and Sofia have their well-dressed and expertly-coordinated family outings, which made headlines last yearLetizia is a known style star in the Spanish royal family, but the photos from last summer reveal Leonor and Sofia have inherited her good taste.

Felipe and Letizia had their own summer visit to the United States in June. In addition to meeting with President Trump and the First Lady, which marked Felipe's sixth visit to the White House since 1989, the royals also spent time in San Antonio, Texas, and New Orleans, Louisiana. There's no word yet on where exactly in the United States Leonor and Sofia are attending summer camp.
