I don't think Elena fully knows herself yet, she's very confident and doesn't think through like Sophia. But we know Elena is destined to be Queen, but she doesn't know what type of leader she will be. But I agree with u that being a protector of the Ever Realm is too much as of now.
Elena knows solutions and is decisive but she's confused about her royal part of life. She knows the friendly Jaquins more than she really knows herself. Elena knows how to let her conscience be her guide but she doesn't completely know all of her own qualities, that's part of what will show when she's 100% prepared to be queen. It's her qualities that'll actually form most of her leadership skills.
