An Italian singer and teenage heartthrob has revealed the strong work ethic of the Spanish princesses after he met them at an event in Madrid CHECK

Teo Bok, who is Italian born but currently lives in Miami, is a 20-year-old star dubbed the ‘prince of Music’ by Spanish magazine Hola!

And as he has captured the hearts of teenagers across Europe, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofía are among his biggest fans.

The singer’s track, Esperanza, was chosen as the anthem of the AmplificARTE project, which is a music and education workshop run by the Princess of Girona Foundation.

And Spanish Queen Letizia has revealed she was inspired to look up the 20-year-old after her daughters, 15 and 17, played his music on repeat when they saw him shoot to fame on The Voice in Germany.

Letizia, King Felipe and their daughters were recently spotted bopping away at Teo’s concert in Córdoba, Spain – and he has revealed in an interview with Hola! the conversations he had with the Spanish royals following the show.

He said he felt an affinity with Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofía, claiming that, while they had very different responsibilities, they were all public figures who are often in the limelight, which means he understands them.

As the pop star chatted to the princesses and after he took a photo with their father,, he noted their conversation was cut short when Infanta Sofía announced they would soon have to leave.

He claims the young royal told him: ‘In half an hour, we will have to go. We would like to stay but we have work.’

Teo added that he admired their work ethic but hoped they had a chance to enjoy fun activities from time to time as they are young girls.

Infanta Sofía and her older sister, Princess Leonor, have been stepping into the limelight in recent years as they prepare to enter adulthood on the world stage.

Leonor, who just graduated from UWC Atlantic College in Wales, known as ‘Hippy Hogwarts’, prepares to start her military training in August.

Whereas many of her peers will go off to university, the eldest daughter of King Felipe and Queen Letizia will return to Spain to begin training.

Spanish defence minister Margarita Robles confirmed Princess Leonor of Asturias’s next move earlier this year to society bible Tatler.

The training will include stints in the armed forces, the Spanish navy and the air force.

Speaking in March, Ms Robles confirmed: ‘In due course, the commander-in-chief of the armed forces will be a woman, and in recent years we have been making a very important effort to incorporate women into the armed forces.’

The Princess will begin her training at Army Military Academy in Zaragoza before going to naval school, and will complete her three years at the General Air Academy.

In September last year the Spanish palace announced that Princess Leonor will go to university to study law once her three years of military training have been completed.

While Leonor’s choice of university is unknown, the Princess’s academic background already bears a resemblance to that of her father King Felipe.

After graduating from high school at Lakefield College in Canada, Felipe returned to Spain and attended the General Military Academy of Zaragozo, and went on to study at the Naval Military School in Marín.

He ended his training with a stint at the General Air Academy in San Javier.

His also completed his military training with a stint on the shop Juan Sebastián Elcano aged 18 in 1987, and went on to study law at the Autonomous University of Madrid.
