MADRID. Such and since it advanced yesterday ABC, Her Royal Highness the Infanta Dona Leonor will be baptized on January 14 in the Palace of the Zarzuela. The news was confirmed by the House of His Majesty the King, who last night added that Don Juan Carlos and Dona Sofía will be the godfathers of the first-born one of the Princes of Asturias and that the religious ceremony will be celebrated at half after twelve of the second Saturday of January.

The information about the date of the baptism and the name of the godfathers was sent to the mass media spent the eight of the evening across a message of mobile telephone, sms, the same method that was in use for reporting about all the details related to the birth of the girl.

Have king and queen ever been a God parents together for a baby or this time will be the first time for them. I wonder if it is a sign that Leonore will have a special important role in Spanish history, I reffer to the lates issue about doing amandement of the constitution to make her become the first reign under new contitution.

According to the article posted above they have never been godparents together (I don't know, maybe only for any the King's nephew). Juan Carlos was the godfather of Froilan, who is his first grandson, so the Kings as the godparents of the first child of the Princes don't make Leonor so special. It doesn't mean that Leonor will be the future Queen (but I hope she will be), she is just the first child.

WOW! It's my 500th post!!!

I believe that the Princes chose the Kings with a practical sense, it is the option that is going to bring fewer problems, and this way they prevent certain press from creating polemics concerning the girl.

LaChicaMadrileña, is true that the King was the godfather of Froilán because he was the first grandson, but his godmother was the mother of Jaime. Besides if the Prince Felipe was not married Froilán he would have been the inheritor after his mother.

That the Kings are the godfathers of Leonor, I believe that it is also a way of showing the support to Leonor how future heiress to the throne. The tradition was, but I remember badly, that the Kings were the godfathers of the future inheritor. In an indirect way the photography of the baptism is going to be a sample of the support to Leonor. It is a way of demonstrating the support to the first-born one, but they might have hoped that the male was born in order that the King was the godfather, how it happened in its day with Don Juan and the Prince Felipe.

According to a spokesman of La Zarzuela, by god parenting Infanta Leonor, the Kings are giving continuation to an old tradition of the Royal Family, according to which the grandparents of the crown princes are also their godparents.

The baptisms are never broadcast directly by television, though always images offer later in the television newscasts or the programs. The images will be also official how those of Irene's baptism. Not if in this case, to the being Leonor an Infanta the baptism if it will be broadcast directly, the exit of the clinic was followed live by all the programs of television, it will depend on the parents.

I doubt it will happen, since the ceremony will have a familiar character, as stated in the following article:

http://www.informativos.telecinco.es...s/dn_17350.htm

The ceremony shall have a familiar character (as the baptisms of all the other six grandchildren of the Kings) and it will take place at the main entrance of the Palace of La Zarzuela, where the baptismal sink of Santo Domingo de Guzmán will be settled.

This is a Romanic relic of the 12th century, in which practically all the inheriting princes of the Spanish Royal Family have been baptized, among them Prince Felipe and his sisters Infantas Elena and Cristina. The other six grandchildren of the kings - Felipe Juan Froilán, Victoria Federica, Juan Valentín, Pablo Nicholás, Miguel and Irene - have not been baptized in it, since they do not have the condition of Infants, nor the treatment of Royal Highnesses.

With all probability Infanta Leonor will take the same apron that was taken by her grandfather the King, her father the Prince of Asturias, her aunts Infantas Elena and Cristina and her six cousins.

With the Princes and with Leonor everything is a bit different. The exits of the clinic were never re-transmitted directly, but they were putting later on the images in the programs. With Leonor all the televisions showed the images of the exit of the clinic. The decision will depend on the Zarzuela , to the being Leonor an Infanta there is no a modal on the decision that they can take.

I have a question about Leonor's baptism. Generally the Spanish baptisms are very family oriented gatherings. There isn't a parade of foreign royals like Pavlos and Marie Chantal had for all of their children. Elena and Cristina had their in laws present and their Greek cousins (mostly Alexia) and the Bulgarian royals occasionally.

Will the circumstances be different in Leonor's case because she might be queen one day? Who could we possibly expect if there will be foreign guests invited?

Denmark vs Spain??? ha ha ha

What I found very funny, is the synchronization between the Danish and Spanish CP couples.

They announced their wedding with 2 weeks difference (October 14th, November 1st)

They married with one week difference (May 14, May 22nd)

They announced pregnancy with 2 weeks difference (April 25th, May 8th)

They had a baby with 2 weeks difference (October 14th, October 31st)

Both couples had their baby, exactly 2 years after their engagement announcement

And now they Christen with 1 week difference (Jan 14th, Jan 21st) !!! At is the first time that Spain preceeds Denmark


All these evens are not simple coincidences??? or signes for a commun destiny

HAPPINESS to both of them

Just fifteen days left to the baptism of Infanta Doña Leonor at the Palace of La Zarzuela and the family of the Princess of Asturias has already ordered the outfits, so that everything gets ready with time.

A few days ago, Paloma Rocasolano and the maternal grandparents of Doña Letizia went to the store of Felipe Varela in Madrid, which means that (as it happened the day of the wedding of the Princes) Varela will once again be in charge of dressing the family of the Princess, who has become his main client, since most of the wardrobe she uses for official acts is signed by this designer. It’s still unknown, however if Doña Letizia will also pick Varela this time or if she will return to Lorenzo Caprile, who usually dresses her for celebrations.

According to reports, the Christening of Infanta Leonor is scheduled to Saturday, January 14th, at 12:30 Spanish time.

Here's the link to be up to date with the time in Spain.
http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_ES.aspx

Before opening this thread on Saturday, we really would like to take a moment and ask our dear members to refrain the "photo-posting frenzy" and check first if the pictures you're gonna post weren't already posted with less or no watermarks.

This will make our job easier and will avoid the clogging of the thread with repeated pictures, making it easier for navigation.

thanks a lot for your consideration regarding this matter,

Anna_R & Elsa M.

The baptismal sink of Santo Domingo returns to The Zarzuela 38 years later

The historical relic already has been moved from the Monastery of Santo Domingo, placed in the street Claudio Coello of Madrid, to the residence of the Royal Family, where ultiman the preparations for the baptism of the Infanta Dona Leonor next Saturday

ALMUDENA MARTÍNEZ-FORNÉS

MADRID. The historical sink
in the one that was baptized in the year 1170 Guzmán's Santo Domingo has been moved at the beginning of this week to the Palace of The Zarzuela, where next Saturday it will be used in order that the first-born one of the Princes of Asturias, the Infanta Dona Leonor, receives the sacrament of the baptism.
Of this form, the sink has returned to the residence of the Royal Family 38 years after its last movement to The Zarzuela, on the occasion of the baptism of Don Felipe, who was celebrated on February 8, 1968, when the third son of Their Majesties the Kings was counting with nine days of life.
From that day the sink has not returned to be in use in any baptism, since its use is reserved to the Princes and Infantes of Spain. For it, the first six grandsons of the Kings - children of the Dukes of Lugo and the Dukes of Palm of Majorca - have received the baptismal waters in another sink, in make concrete, a piece of the XIXth century proceeding from the Royal Palace.
This one has been the fourth time that the sink of Santo Domingo has been taken to the Palace of the Zarzuela from the Monastery of Santo Domingo el Real, placed in the number 112 of the street Claudio Coello of Madrid , where the mothers Dominicans guard this valued relic, which - except these days, which one finds temporarily in Zarzuela - can be visited by the public.
In this sink there have received the baptismal waters almost all the Inheritors of the Wreath for four centuries. The tradition began in times of Felipe III, who in 1605 ordered to move the sink to Valladolid for the baptism of hisson Felipe IV. Till then, the piece had remained in the parochial church of Caleruega's villa (Burgos), where Domingo de Guzmán had been baptized, though when thirteen years after his death, in 1221 in Bologna, the Pope Gregorio IX declares him A Saint, the sink starts being venerated as relic.

Two days for the baptism of Leonor

Doña Leonor The one that someday will become Queen of Spain will be baptized to 12: 30 of Saturday in the dependencies of the Zarzuela before a reduced group of guests formed by the nearest relatives and high personalities of the State.
The access of mass media to the cover of the event by space problems has been restricted extraordinarily. It will not be in the chapel, but in the lobby qualified to the effect.
If there are no new features, will be Rouco Varela who administers the sacrament. The images and the photos of the event will distribute to the TVE and agency to them EFE.
Against the expectations, there will be no live broadcasting.The ceremony will be "sober and familiar".

They begin to arrive the guests to the baptism of Infanta Leonor.

It was possible to be seen sister of princess, Telma Ortiz, entering house of its mother. The delegate of the Red Cross, has returned to Spain to celebrate this great day. She herself assures to have all predicted one for Saturday, day in which the baptism will be celebrated. Telma commented that she is not nervous and that the girl is precious.
