The die is cast for the heir to the crown Regarding her training for the future: first, Princess Leonor will go through the three military academies, Land in Zaragoza, Sea in Marín and Air in San Javier. And then, the time will come to acquire academic training in university classrooms. A year in each of them dedicated not to observing how the people who study in the centers of the three arms of the Spanish army work, but to being one of its members.
The training plan and preparation of the princess it’s a tracing from the one decided in 1985 for the prince philip by their parents, Mr. Juan Carlos and Mrs. Sofía and approved by the President of the Spanish Government, as required by law. However, it must be remembered that Felipe Gonzalez would have preferred that the successor to the Crown study first at the University, but his argument was refuted by the Palacio de la Zarzuela, which considered that start the military career At the age when the officers of his same generation were finishing it, it would have been a serious inconvenience for Don Felipe.
It is also curious to observe that some of the arguments put forward in the statement released this week in favor of the military preparation of the eldest daughter of the Kings, instilling in Leonor values as the disciplinehe fellowshipthe loyalty or the commitment of permanent service to the Spaniards, are the same ones that were cited in the statement from 38 years ago in reference to the training of his father, the current monarch.
The Princess of Asturias, in contrast to what her father found throughout his stay at the three military academies, is going to join a highly advanced professional institution in the technological and professional field, in which many of the former prejudices and malpractice in the treatment of soldiers have almost completely disappeared. And she, very important, she is going to find a very consolidated female presence made up of very well-prepared women who have been rising in their positions thanks to their own merits. Something that has cost a lot in some cases, but that has been accepted by the most recalcitrant soldiers in the face of the increasing incorporation of women into the Armed Forces.
Before turning 18, without having yet reached the age of majority that will come with her next birthday, on October 31 and two months after entering the General Academy of Zaragoza, the princess will begin to do the necessary instruction prior to the Flag Jura, which will arrive in December. And she will already become “cadet lady » of the Land Army first, guardiamarina in his second year at the Marin Naval Academy and in his third year he will study as a alfer alumna. After those three years, the heiress to the Crown will have as her first profession that of being a soldier, just like her father, and with time she will be prepared to be queen and captain ggeneral of the three armies. She will be the first female Spanish royal to assume such a high honor. Something worthy of pride for the group of women who aspire to equality in all fields of society.
