PHOTOS FROM NEWSCOM of the day of the christening of leonor when the princes and the dukes of palma and lugo went for a dinner together with some other friends to celebrate the event and the birthday of the duke of palma.
After the baptism of Infanta Leonor, Inaki Urdangarin gathered family and friends in a restaurant in Madrid, in order to celebrate his 37th birthday. Among the guests, there were the Dukes of Lugo and the Princes of Asturias.
Marlene, I'm affraid no one here knows the answer... What seems evident is that Felipe Froilán didn't attend the baptism, but no reason was given in the press.
Felipe was in the baptism, today in Spanish television in the Television newscast they have put new images and the child was. It seems to be that he was the only one that was kept in the place where he had to be.
It's strange that he wasn't with his parents... all the other children were...
Felipe was in the place that was corresponding to him, he approached when he was called by his grandmother, was the most formal. But the rest of children wanted to be in the first row, and instead of being kept in their place they went away with their parents. In this occasion they all were the naughty ones, and the most formal Felipe, he is becoming major.
Thank yuo everyone for the lovely photographs and video links. they are all so beautiful.
In Islam we don't have an equivalent to a christening but seeing these photos almost makes me wish we did! What a wonderful family-orientated and happy affair. I love the fact that they've kept the entire affair private and inimtate, it gives it such an elegant and understated feel. It makes it seem more "normal", something the Spanish Royal Family always seems to strive for and attain.
Letizia looks beautiful, she is glowing on her day as the "proud Mummy"! Felipe looks like he's itching to get his hands on his little princess" As for little Leonor, an absolutely sweetheart! She is so very very cute!
Telma and Paloma looked gorgeous! Will Telma be staying in Spain now or continuing her humanitarian work?
The baptism of Infanta Leonor is already destined to become one of the social events included in the 2006 summaries. For that reason, the “magazines of the heart” have decided to anticipate their publication to Monday. All of them take the historical celebration on their covers.
Hola dedicates an ample news article to the event.
Semana emphasizes in its cover that the first-born of the Princes of Asturias had her paternal grandparents, Their Majesties the King and Queen, as the godparents and emphasizes that the ceremony was "intimate and familiar". In addition, it makes a route through other baptisms of the royal Family.
For Diez Minutos, this was "the great day of Leonor", and this is the title of the news article. Like other magazines, also Diez Minutos includes a photographic route through the baptisms of the other European princes, during the last years.
Lecturas has on its cover the photo of both families, gathered for the great day of the baptism of Infanta Leonor de Todos los Santos Borbón Ortiz. Several photos emphasize that little Leonor received caresses and affectionate gestures from the whole family.

OMG! Letizia looked amazing!! It's so good to see her again.. Haven't seen her that much since she has been giving birth to Leonor.. And the pic where Little Leonor is smiling while she's asleep just.. *speechless* She looks like an angel..
Treat others as you want to be treated, don't give up - and steal some muffins along the way!
Is an evidence, with her motherhood, Doña Letzia is becoming more "feminin" as others many women. And in her case, it's tremendous, because she is becoming so harmoniously beatiful, she is getting so plenty of calm and happyness, it's making her more "splendid" ;especially because her well know nervousness.....
