Leonor de Borbón is the Infanta of Spain, but she doesn’t know it yet. The daughter of the Princes of Asturias turns two months this dawn, and that will happen in La Mareta, the residence of Lanzarote where the family is resting some days and where the girl is the absolute queen.

Although, in comparison with the frozen peninsular climate, the Canary days continue enjoying an enviable temperature, the truth is that it intermittently rains, the winds and the sun are constantly playing with the clouds, which has not allowed the Princes and their daughter to come outside very much.

In the last 48 hours, after having lunch with princess Alexia of Greece and her husband Carlos Morales, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia did not left the house.

Finally, yesterday, in the middle of the morning, they left La Mareta and went to the centre of Arrecife, through whose streets they have strolled. The Princes received the greetings from the people passing by and made some shopping in several bazaars. Doña Letizia didn’t know Lanzarote, although she had already been in other islands of the archipelago, and, according to our sources, she has been enchanted by it, in spite of the little she has been able to see.

Aside from the rainy weather, the imprisonment of the Princes has also been influenced by the permanent presence of several cars with paparazzi, stationed in frony of La Mareta, ready to follow the family. Don Felipe and Doña Letizia, who are little receptive to the constant presence of the photographers, were hoping that the photographic session of last Tuesday would balsam them, due to their allergy to the persecution of the cameras. However, it is also true that the informative blockade of the Princes does nothing more than exciting the hunting instinct of their photographic pursuers and that is what has happened in Lanzarote.

During their hours of confinement, the Princes have enjoyed the wild landscape that surrounds La Mareta, an enclosure whose main house is hung on a volcanic cliff over the Atlantic. Within the property there are other small constructions, between which it is located a swimming pool, a garden of palms, a tennis court and a heliport. It’s in the hall of the main house that the Princes are enjoying their daughter, the Infanta of Spain that reigns over La Mareta.

In reference to the pants comment regarding the C-Section. You can wear pants its just recommended that you were loose fitting ones. Also bear in mind, that these days....most C Sections are done at the bikini line...so it possible to wear pants. And the wearing high heels are not weird...I have a girlfriend who was 8 months pregnant wearing stiletto's....its just a personal perference.

The image of Lanzarote reachs million Spanish thanks to the Princes and to Infanta Leonor Captura of screen of elmundo.es

Madrid, two of afternoon, the temperature goes up to around the 6 degrees Celsius and in the last night it has been arrived at the 2 degrees. In million homes the television is ignited simultaneously that the stoves. In the screen they appear Princes de Asturias in t-shirt with its daughter in arms and under a radiating sun. In Lanzarote mercury exceeds the 20 degrees. It is the synthesis of a gratuitous announcement by which the Patronage of Tourism would have to pay million euros.



The residence of the Mareta de Costa Teguise has become privileged inn of the Royal Family and the president of the Government. The continuous visits of these personages who drag the attention of hundreds of mass media have supposed for Lanzarote a promotion that surpasses any institutional campaign. Soon after which the Princes put this Tuesday in the Mareta, the news circulated around the digital versions of generalist newspapers of national distance.
20minutos with 2,298,000 readers to the day, Elpais.es with almost a million daily visits or Elmundo.es with 7.4 million readers to the month. "the princes change the snow of Baqueira by the sun of Lanzarote" or "the tempering climate of Lanzarote has caused that the Royal Family has gone frequently to the island" were some of the phrases that could be read. Through the hertzian waveses, the Chain To be, with almost 5 million daily listeners, became echo of the visit of the Princes who "looked for the heat of Lanzarote".
The CLOSE-woven PART OF A FISHING NET, Point Radio and Wave Zero did the own thing. The televisions dedicated an outstanding space in their news to the image of Don Felipe, Doña Leticia and Infant Leonor putting in the Mareta. In magazín matinal of Telecinco the presenter commented that the Princes spent their vacations of Christmas "in that wonderful earth that is Lanzarote" and transmitted to more of a million spectators whom the program of average his has envies by not being able to be here enjoying the sun.
The successful programs pink and the press of the heart, always interested in the Royal Family, also focused their attention on the vacations of the Princes. Without a doubt, all a gratuitous promotion that could still be better, if it is confirmed that the Princes decide to visit the Tourist Centers in these days. The photos of the National Park of Timanfaya or the Jameos of the Water could reach more than twenty million people in a single day.

This is amazing indeed! Even when they're on vacations, the Princes of Asturias keep promoting Spain and the best that its diverse geography and climate can offer. Everybody keep making $$$ with their image... they're a gold mine for the press, the media, the tourism agencies, the local commerce, etc. The Spanish royal family is permanently accomplishing their role of promoting Spain and the Spaniards (even if they have to sacrifice their vacation time, as it happened this week)... And still, when they escape a few days from Spain, in order to enjoy a little of privacy (as it happened last Summer), the press has no mercy in criticising them for not staying a whole month in Palma da Mallorca under the paparazzi lenses...
I wonder why does Peñafiel use the name of the Princes of Asturias only to bash the royal family, instead of recognizing the so much they contribute to Spain, in all levels

The girl of her eyes

The princess Letizia did everything possible in order that the Press could catch the blue look of her daughter in Lanzarote

We had never seen the princess Letizia so pawned in facilitating the work to her ex-companions.
Of Christmas vacations in Lanzarote, Don Felipe and his wife wanted to compensate the polemic arisen after being photographed in a mall in Madrid by a put official of the most relaxed thing.
With the intention of enjoying a pleasant stay, the family decided to appear before the cameras and to avoid inconvinient pursuit like that.

With jeans and shirt
Thanks to this photographic session of Tuesday, the 27th in their residence of The Mareta we have seen the great thing that has grown Leonor. So much that already dresses as a major girl: with jeans and shirt.
" She is very good, eats and sleeps, the normal thing in a baby of almost two months ", affirmed Letizia full of pride and happiness.

Illuminating a splendid, unusual figure in a woman who has just been a mother, the Princess of Asturias did not stop presuming. " Do you see well her eyes? ", she asked several times almost forty congregated journalists in order that they could catch well the blue look of her girl, who will be baptized on January 14 in Madrid.

' Do you see well her eyes? ', Letizia said
Also we saw seemed that Doña Leonor guards with her mother grandfather, Jesus Ortiz, from whom she has inherited the nose.
The small Infanta, who " already weighs five kilos ", will be undoubtedly the great protagonist in the dinner of End of Year, since this day expires two months.

I hate to to this, but I've said this before and I'm going to repeat it again. We all adore these lovely photos and we all appreaciate that each member takes time to search and post photos, but do you find it absolutely necessary to post the exact same photos 400 times?... Even if the photos are not attached to TRF's database, some members have adressed the team to complain, because we, moderators, allow that 1000 photos from one event are posted and we agree with those members. That's why we spend so much time removing repeated photos... but you all should co-operate...

Well, thank you very much again, but please, before postimg another photo, take a while to see it isn't already here.

I feel sorry for them. Thier lives are at risc of becomming more and more like a realityshow. They can not even have a small vacation for them selves. No wonder they feel like staying inside of the house most of the time. They should stop letting thier lives being runned too much by the press(I know it is difficult:) ) and stop apologize everything like Prince Filipe did to the press when Letizia had a false alarm before the birth or when he apologized to the press that they had to wait a few days before seing Letizia and the baby. False alarms and c-sections with a period of recovery are normal for pregnant women and are not something that should be apologized for. Mother and baby comes first, then the press just have to wait till they feel ready to be seen. Now it says they are making this photosession as some kind of an apology for being photographed by papparazzos the mall in Madrid. They should stop pandering too much to the press and put a foot down or else the press will continue and be more and more intruding. I know it is nice to see photos of the three together and they seemed very happy, but by letting in on the press, the press will demand more and more of them and like any other parents there will be times when they are stressed and not up for it and then the press will begin to wonder and speculate. They look okay now, but im pretty sure that they inside also are a bit annoyed when they smile and wawe every time they drive past some photographers in thier car or are out for a walk. Just try to ignore the papparazzos, then the pictures will be less exciting for the press and although non-smiling pictures can be misused by some gossip magazines to print marrigeproblem/post pregnancy depression/child sicknes stories, I think most normal people will understand that they need privacy and can not smile and look happy all the time. I know the Spanish situation is different and more complicated, but the other royals, although not succeeding well all the time:) , seem to be better to set some bordres for the press and just accept the risc that it can be critizized by some for being too private. It a choice between two evils, but they have a right to privacy imo:)

Don Felipe and dona Letizia finish their vacations in Lanzarote

With 21 degrees of temperature and the clear sky, don Felipe and dona Letizia, together with their mall Leonor, already with two months of age, they left little before the today midday on Saturday the residence of The Mareta of Coast Teguise with destiny Guacimeta's airport. In the airport enclosure, the Princes of Asturias and their small one they embarked in a flight of Spanair's regular line with destiny to Madrid, to good of power like that to divide the year with don Juan Carlos and dona Sofía. Thus, Their Highnesses put end to a stay vacional of five days in Lanzarote, with the intention of returning in the future.
To the exit of The Mareta, don Felipe, to the steering wheel of the car that he is in the habit of leading in a habitual way, stopped a few seconds before the onlookers who were waiting for their exit and before the representatives of the mass media, being grateful to all for the treatment that had distributed him to him and his family during the time of rest in soil lanzaroteño. Of equal way asintió dona Letizia, with a wide smile for the presents.
It is necessary to indicate that small before the item, up to Coast Teguise they approached Alexia of Greece, with her small two (Ana Maria y Arrietta), on board of a car; and the husband of this one, Carlos Morales. During near half an hour the family Morales was together with their cousins, the better thing to dismiss and to be wished in 2006 for the Princes of Asturias.
