Princess Leonor of Spain looked regal as she arrived at the Pilar Cathedral earlier today in her military uniform.
The Spanish royal stunned in military uniform at the Church in Zaragoza, Spain for a flower offering ceremony.
The 17-year-old was photographed smiling among friends while enjoying the excursion with the other cadets of Military Academy of Zaragoza.
For the occasion, Leonor, who is the heir to the Spanish throne, donned a red beret and wore her hair in a chic plaited bun.
The daughter of King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia kept her makeup to a minimum for the occasion, revealing her natural beauty.

The Queen wore a Parisian-style striped white and navy top which had three-quarter-length sleeves and a high neckline.
And while Letizia normally wears her locks down, it seems she wanted to switch up her hairstyle.
She instead wore her hair in a low ponytail and parted her brunette tresses, slicking some some hair to the side.
Letizia visited the CEIP Plurilinge do Camio Ingls school, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.
The director of the centre, Francisco vila, said he viewed the visit from the Queen as ‘a unique opportunity’ to highlight the work carried out by the centre, local media La Vanguardia reported.

Letizia tucked the top into a pair of smart navy suit trousers and opted to wear a belt, which cinched in her waist.
The former journalist finished her look by wearing a pair of Carrie Blue Suede Sling Back heels from Isabel Abdo.
The Queen wore three silver diamante hoops in each year and opted for natural makeup, along with her signature smoky eye shadow.
The royal smiled as she walked around the building, accompanied by officials such as the Minister of Education, Pilar Alegra, the president of the Xunta, Alfonso Rueda, and the president of the Parliament of Galicia, Miguel ngel Santalices.
It’s been a busy couple of months for the Queen, from travelling to Australia to watch her national woman’s football team win the World Cup, to saying goodbye to both of her daughters.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia have an empty nest after their youngest daughter, Infanta Sofa, 16, moved to Wales last month.
Sofa, 16, left her residence at ‘Prince Pavilion’ near Zarzuela Palace to start school at UWC Atlantic College in the Welsh county of Vale of Glamorgan.
The school is often referred to as ‘Hippie Hogwarts’ thanks to its progressive approach to education and picturesque castle setting.
The college is based at St Donats Castle, south Wales in a 12th century castle set in 122 acres of woodland and farmland with its own valley and seafront.
It was founded in German educationalist Kurt Hahn, is situated at the 12th century St Donat’s Castle on the country’s south coast and costs a whopping 67,000 per year for courses including Tai Chi, the theory of knowledge and Tibetan literature.
