The key for the Princess of Asturias to be able to swear in the Constitution on the same day she reaches the age of majority, that is, the 31st of next October, is that the Cortes Generales are constituted on that day. A possibility that has quite a few points in its favor since after the attempted investiture of the candidate of the Popular Party, who has little chance of achieving it today, it will be the turn of the leader of the Socialist Party, who is currently following his contacts to arrive to obtain the majority necessary to govern.
An issue to take into account, according to unofficial sources from the Zarzuela Palace, is that in order for the swearing-in of the heir to the Crown to be carried out, it is not essential that the Government has been formed, but it would be sufficient for both the The Congress of Deputies and the Senate are active, since the Princess of Asturias has to commit to preserving and ensuring that the Constitution is preserved before the representatives of popular sovereignty. That falls within the law and there would be no problems in organizing the act of Leonor’s swearing-in, as the top officials of the King’s House would have to discuss it with the president of the Legislative Chamber as well as with the president of the Upper House. .
If in the end this ceremony cannot be held on the date considered most appropriate, because it marks the beginning of the official and institutional task of the first-born of Kings Felipe and Letizia, it would not be a drama for the Royal House if it had to be postponed to another date later, but as long as the deputies and senators have already sworn in their positions as representatives of the legislative power and the sovereign people.
Meanwhile, the lady cadet Borbón Ortiz continues with the rest of the candidates her hard training on the ground that leads her to take long walks that begin at very early hours, to master muddy soils on which she has to slide, to control the rifles and manage to disassemble and assemble them in a not too long time and meet all the demands that all cadets have to go through. In a month, Princess Leonor will swear the flag in the courtyard of the General Academy of Zaragoza, a gesture with which she will ratify her belonging to the applicants to be part of the Armed Forces. With this, she will begin her second year studies, as stipulated in her study plan, which will lead her to spend one year in each of the three military academies.
Her sister, Infanta Sofía, follows in the footsteps of the heir to the Crown by taking two courses at the school in Wales to study the International Baccalaureate, which will allow her to pursue a university degree abroad, if that is her wish. Until the end of October, little Borbón Ortiz will not return to her Madrid residence to spend a few days of vacation regulated by the center in which she is enrolled.
