King Felipe VI of Spain received a royal welcome from his daughters Princess Leonor, 9, and Princess Sofia, 8, on Tuesday.
Returning from an official engagement in Germany, the King of Spain was greeted by his daughters on the airport runway. Princesses Leonor and Sofia were dressed in their school uniforms, accompanied by their ever-so-stylish mother, Queen Letizia.
The photos of the happy family were released to mark the upcoming one-year anniversary of King Felipe, who succeeded the throne after his father abdicated.
The doting girls asked their dad about his trip, during which he was honored with the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen.
