That you everyone for the pictures, videos and articles. This was for us, Spaniards, an important historical event and we appreciate the interest and support everyone gives the baby Princess to become, as the article says, the first Queen in history of a democratic Spain. :)

agreed completely, lula.
we can only see pictures of the Queen & Felipe kissed Leonor while the King actually kissed her too.
it's a shame.. it could be a great moment and symbolization.

what makes me confused is why there are several photographers, but only these images released.
do they collect all the pictures and choose the best ones to be released?
when the princes of asturias & leonor went for a photo session in lanzarote, they could capture many many images in just a few minutes.
and this is a longer ceremony, right?
did EFE or casareal choose which photos to be released?

I went to other SRF Christenings threads and also noticed that in previous Christenings - King Juan Carlos' and Prince Felipe's - the Godmothers carried them with their left arms in some ocasions...
Yesterday someone commented that in an article Peñafiel was explaining it for the change of liturgy. The liturgies in the Catholic Church are not how 40 years ago, and in case of Spain 40 years ago Franco was and the liturgy was very strict.
I have been investigating a bit. Before she was the godmother the one that was carrying the baby, and the godfather, for example, was the one that was holding the light. Nevertheless, now it is in the habit of being the mother the one that takes the baby and in case of yesterday, parents and godfathers were holding the light.
The baptism is a sacrament, and in the only thing that there is certain freedom it is in the godfathers' election. The rest is a rite marked by the Catholic Church. And it is all the same that be king or plebeian.

The Canadian media really likes the Prince and Princess of Asturias, for a (political, etc.) reason/connection that I cannot figure out.

Coverage of the British royals is a given, seeing as Queen Elizabeth II is the head of our country. And occasional (although even this is rare) of the Grimaldis considering the glamour and scandal seems also a natural fit.

But since the engagement of Felipe and Letizia was splashed on the front page of Metro and 24 Hours (commuter papers) with inside mentions in the Toronto Star and the Globe & Mail, then coverage of the wedding and to clips of the Spanish media staking out the hospital on the night of Leonor's birth, every milestone of this couple is covered in the Canadian media which is a lot more than I have seen of other monarchies.

As far as I am aware, the Canadian government and people have no more of a connection to Spain than any other country with a monarchy, from Norway to Denmark, the Morocco to Belgium. But there is a continued fascination with this couple.

They are different things. I explain to you.
In Lanzarote, the photos were done in the exterior of The Mareta, it was the put one for the whole press. When Letizia and Leonor went out of the clinic, for example, also it went put opened to all and there were 300 journalists.
But this one was a more familiar ceremony, and besides it was a religious ceremony inside the Zarzuela. How in other baptisms or in the weddings, there is a photographer of EFE (state agency of press) who takes charge doing the photographies and distribute them free.
The photographer can do hundreds of photos, but how it happens always then the agency chooses better that they are those that you publish ... there will be eliminated those who they are desenfocadas, bad of light, where someone crosses ... all these things.
Later there was the photographer of the Royal House, that I imagine that he will do the photos for the Kings and the oficiales that turn out to be published in the web.

yes, i understand this, lula..
i'm very aware how different these situations are (sorry if i mislead you in my earlier post... :o :o)
seeing the photos, i thought it was only 1/2 photographers on the christening, but now after watching the video, there are plenty of photographers (probably less than 10 though).
so, the procedure is that they submit their photos and then EFE released some best ones only? is that correct?

however, i'm very surprised how well behaved the spanish press are. they do not have paparazzi pictures of the guests arriving (like when they entered la zarzuela). but, that's just my thought...

The most spontaneous episode had Prince Felipe as the protagonist. During a brief informal meeting with the journalists, just before the baptism and after the official photos, Don Felipe was asked if Leonor would have only one name. As did not hear it well, he thought they were asking him about the number of children. "No, we will have many more" he said!

Apparently the same “deafness” the heir accused on the day of his sister’s engagement (when he was asked about his own wedding) has served now to show that he has changed his plans and surpassed the expectations… Perhaps now he wants to have "more than four and less than ten".
this makes me laugh, elsa..
after a really emotional ceremony, the prince was a bit confused (and out of place) facing that many many media...
hehe...

The grandmother of Letizia, very tender Enriqueta kissing her granddaughter and Leonor. And very nice giving a kiss to the King, she was very spontaneous, but she is a very major woman and it is understood. The Queen was very affectionate with her.
i noticed this also, lula...
it was a touching moments seeing how close the family are to one another.
the Queen was also very affectionate kissing her son-in-law and daughters.
this day, it seem Enriqueta caught the attention more than Menchu, Letizia is so sweet with her.

and special thanks for agm for capturing these moments...
are there more please?

Photographers there had to be two or three, not more. Later there had to be two television cameras.

The journalists only could accede during the put one, and they were a very limited group, 10 or 15 approximately, and they did not have access to the ceremony.. They belong to the most important mass media and are those who are employed at the coverage of all the official acts. They are serious journalists, experts in Royal House.
Because of it the agencies of paparazzis protest and criticize everything, because they could not have done business with the baptism. Always it is the same thing.
On the entry of the guests. All the guests entered car. I explain it to you:
The Palace of the Zarzuela is placed in a mount (in origin it was a pavilion of hunt), and has a highway of access. For safety reasons, this highway is closed and only it is possible to accede with permission. From the entry to the highway to the palace there are several kilometres, therefore to do photographies of the guests was impossible, only they saw the cars to pass.

It seemed like such a nice simple family occasion. Letizia and Felipe looks so relaxed and happy and Leonor was precious. I loved the moment when Letizia spoke to Leonor and she looked at her mother and smiled. I think they will have a good relationship in the future. Letizia looked so relaxed, no anxiety at all about bringing a baby into a new situation. She obviously is a happy and confident mother.

I have found the song that the nuns were singing when the Princes were presenting the girl before the Virgin. Some tear escaped from the Princess. It is in Spanish, I am going to translate it and hope that it does not lose very much, because it is very nice.

http://www.archimadrid.es/deleju/Doc...a/20031108.htm
MARÍA, MÍRAME / MARÍA, MÍRAME, /SI TÚ ME MIRAS /ÉL TAMBIÉN ME MIRARÁ / MADRE MÍA, MÍRAME / DE LA MANO LLÉVAME/ MUY CERCA DE ÉL / QUE AHÍ ME QUIERO QUEDAR.
1. María, cúbreme con tu manto,
que tengo miedo, no sé rezar,
que por tus ojos misericordiosos
tendré la fuerza, tendré la paz.
2. Madre, consuélame de mis penas,
es que no quiero ofenderle más
que por tus ojos misericordiosos
quiero ir al cielo y verlos ya.
MARÍA, MÍRAME… /…EN TUS BRAZOS QUIERO DESCANSAR.


MARY, LOOK AT ME / MARY, LOOK AT ME, / IF YOU LOOK AT ME / HE ALSO WILL LOOK AT ME / MY MOTHER, LOOK AT ME /
OF THE HAND TAKE TO ME CLOSELY TOGETHER OF HIM THAT THERE I WANT TO REMAIN.

1. Mary, me cover with your mantle, that I am afraid, I do not know say, that as your compassionate eyes I will have the force, I will have the peace.

2. Mother, console me of my sorrow, it is that I do not want to offend him any more that for your compassionate eyes I want to go to the sky and to see them already.

MARIA, LOOK AT ME … … IN YOUR ARMS I WANT TO REST.
