Notably, the former King, Carlos, faced accusations of money laundering and allegations of harassment from his past lover, Princess Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, a German aristocrat, before his exile in 2014. These scandals severely tarnished the reputation of the Spanish royal family.

Despite the shadow cast by these controversies, Princess Leonor has garnered substantial public support. Her relatively low profile and discretion have contributed to her appeal in the age of social media.

Fernando Rayón, a journalist and professor of political information at CEU San Pablo University, noted, “The royal family has timed her public appearances wisely, keeping her reserved during her years of study.”
