We wax poetic about the British royals on a daily basis, and as much as we live for their every move, it's best not forget that there is more to regal life than William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan. While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were busy wrapping up a tour of New Zealand this week, the Spanish royal family was marking an important milestone of its own.

Young Princess Leonor, who is next in line for the throne, gave her first public address as her parents, King Felipe and Queen Letizia, looked on with pride. The 13-year-old royal was poised as she spoke at the 40th anniversary of Spain's Constitution in Madrid with "a firm voice," as the Associated Press reports.

She's following right in her father's footsteps — he also gave his first public speech when he was 13 back in 1981.

While we're sure her speech was killer, the best part of it all has got to be the pictures of her proud parents looking on.

Their beaming looks really say it all, don't they?
