I agree with what so many of you have said already, the Princess of Asturias looked fantastic; I don't think I've seen her this beautiful, happy and exuberating all at the same time since the time of her and Felipe's engagement and wedding. Infanta Leonor is indeed a super adorable baby!

Thelma is really beautiful as well, she looked great today. Paloma also looked wonderful, she always looks so elegant and chic. What a beautiful family!

I saw the broadcast that TVE's programme "Corazón, corazón" had - it was great! I loved to see the baptism and the footage from earlier on when they left the Ruber Clinic and at their holiday when Leonor had her cute little jeans on! :)

A big thanks to everyone who has provided all these wonderful pictures from Leonor's baptism today!

There are no photos. It is possible to see them heads in some photographies, because they are in the second row. The King Constantino and Ana Maria behind the Royal Family, and the rest behind Letizia's family. In the television they can be seen a bit more.

The most beautiful thing about these photos and videos is that the happiness of the Prince and Princess is written all over their faces. They are beaming with happiness. And the image of the little Infanta looking at her mother and smiling is a treasure.

It's nice to see a Royal event that is so intimate.

And did you all catch that the Prince said they plan on having "muchos mas" (many more) children!

Thanks to all of you who have shared this wonderful album! I must say that I agree with you all who said the Princess of Asturias looks positively gorgeous! Happiness is indeed the best cosmetic for any woman. The ladies were actually all very elegant. The only think that is intriguing me is: WHERE IS FROILÁN AND HIS FAMOUS KICKS?

And, yes, that photo of Leonor smiling to her mum is absolutely moving!

Above all, I adore the simplicity of this ceremony and the fact it was kept very down-to-earth (as it generally happens with the Spanish Royal Family).:)

A few photos that weren't posted yet; from Elmundo and La Razon:

Radiant Princess

The experts say in beauty that there is no woman who does not improve after her first maternity. The hormones go off then to balance and to be left in her point a few happy and radiant mothers when finally they have her babies in arms. The Princess of Asturias was the alive image of the most beautiful placidness, of the natural balance between happiness and organism formed of the luminosity that it was radiating. I am not thinking myself about being wrong on having affirmed that before Dona Letizia had never been so radiant, not in her times of presentadora of Informative with the whole voltage of the areas on her face not so even the day of her wedding with the Prince. It was the target of an official portrait where she shone with own light. Yesterday it was her great day.

Once again Dona Letizia trusted in the good one to play the role of the designer Felipe Varela who on eve had gone on holidays after last weeks of intense work since of his workshop there went out all the garments that the direct relatives of the Princess illuminated since they are her grandmothers, her mother Paloma and her sisters Telma and Erika . (A journalist specialist in mode said today that the sisters not, and he( had all the information of the suits, so I believe that there is a small mistake )
The Princess succeeded squarely with " steal - manteau " (garment - coat of ceremony that allows you to sit you to eating without having that to remove yourself) of wool combed in brown tone inserted with tapes of silk in crude oil. With the totally recovered silhouette she returned to her thin heels with a shoe lounge in clear champagne. Sober in the accessories the most showy thing they were the long earrings of brilliant and pearls that were standing out for the locks of her lock. Very well macke up and brushed, Dona Letizia did not separate of her daughter during the time that lasted the ceremony and the regards to the representatives of the different Institutions. It was called the attention the starched well thing and ironing that was the skirt of christening of the Infanta Dona Leonor, the same one who in its day went the King Don Juan Carlos as well as her three children.
....
The one who did not pose in the official portraits was the current wife of Jesus Ortiz, Ana Togores. In opposition to the decision that took the day of the royal link this time the current lady of Ortiz yes was between the attendees though for reasons of protocol it did not appear in these photos of family. She occupied her place in the ceremony and during the posterior luncheon.

Since it comes being habitual in the last times, the Infanta Dona Elena returned to stand out between the most elegant. A set Chanel in clear tones and a necklace of pearls they were perfect for the ceremony. Her daughter Victoria Federica also adorned herself with a garment of taffeta with laces and enormous bow in the hair.
Again the grandsons of the Kings were the most rebellious of the day like it demonstrated when they surrounded the baptismal sink in the moment in which the Infanta was going to receive the benediction with water of the river Jordan of Rouco Varela's hands. The small ones could to playing with the sink while the Queen was asking for good behavior them with a gesture of her look.

I must say I agree. I just hope everything is OK...

But well, everyone looked great. Letizia has a special mummy shine in her eyes, and the Kings looked so proud. I loved when the Queen said she was wrong when she said the then-newborn Leonor cried a lot, "Leonor is a very calm baby" - she added.
By the way, I love Thelma's sense of style. She always look simple but absolutely glamorous.

A new couple of videos from Terra can be found here:
http://actualidad.terra.es/especiale...nor_682697.htm

(Go to the links Ver Videos)


At first row there were sited the Kings, the Princes of Asturias with Infanta Leonor in the arms of her mother (who has caressed many times the cheeks of the little Infanta), the Dukes of Lugo and Palma. Doña Cristina seated little Irene on her knees.

Behind there were the other relatives of the Kings (like the sisters of Don Juan Carlos, Infantas Pilar and Margarita, with their respective families, and the brother and sister of Doña Sofía, Irene and Constantin of Greece, who has travelled to Madrid, accompanied by his wife, Ana Maria, and several of his children).

On the other side, it was located the family of Doña Letizia: her parents, Jesus and Paloma, her grandparents, Menchu, Enriqueta and Francisco, and the two sisters of the Princess, Telma and Erika, among other relatives.

I keep returning to this photo because it's so precious!
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...9&d=1137248435

Anyhow--seems people on this board are not the only ones that found Princess Letizia particularly radiant. Here's what Beatriz Cortazar, the society columnist for ABC says:

"La Princesa de Asturias era la viva imagen de la placidez más hermosa, del equilibrio natural entre felicidad y organismo plasmado en la luminosidad que irradiaba. No creo equivocarme al afirmar que nunca antes Doña Letizia había estado tan radiante..."

I find it dificult to translate this kind of language because English is not as naturally poetic a language as Spanish, but basically she says that The Princess of Asturias was the living image of the most beautiful peacefulness, that she was luminously radiant; indeed she has never before been so radiant--not when on television and not ever.

Edit: Lula beat me to it!

" Everything above mentioned remains repealed "

The infanta Leonor is as said her grandmother dona Sofía a baby redondito and of blue eyes. In what she was wrong the Queen was at the moment of defining her character. If the day that came to the clinical Rúber Internacional to know the first-born one of the princes of Asturias added, " and weeping woman ", today, dona Sofía has wanted to rectify. " Everything above mentioned remains repealed ", she proclaimed. " Since one sees is very calm, is buenísima. She eats and sleeps ".

The princes of Asturias smiled on having listened to the declaration of the happy grandmother to the journalists invited to the baptism of the infanta Leonor.
....

When in the hal of receipts only they were remaining the Kings and the Princes with histheir daughter, the protocol relaxed. They all approached the journalists to show to the small one. " Have you seen it good that is? ", the Queen commented. Leonor remained slept in the lap of her mother during the whole graphical session.
" The one that is doing weight is she ", warned don Felipe in reference to her wife. Dona Letizia was pressing hands hard and was showing to the small one that already she weighs almost six kilos. Don Juan Carlos was getting congratulations for his double condition of grandfather and godfather but he was allowing the parents to answer to the questions on the small one.
There is going to be surprise?, one asked don Felipe in reference to if to Leonor's name some other one was going to be added. " it will be, clearly, but at the moment not ". When the prince realized that one was not asking him if they were going to have immediately any more children, he clarified: " Ah on the name. Yes she will be called Leonor of All the Saints ". Don Felipe assured that he is "happy" with his daughter and demonstrated that he has taken father's skill in these almost three months. Today he was placing the skirt and was caressing her in order that she was remaining calm.

From the article of El Pais:

Don Felipe was asked if there was going to be a surprise (if other names were going to be added to Leonor) and the Prince answered: "It will clearly be, but not so far!". When the prince realized that the journalist was not asking if they were planing to have more children, he clarified: "Oh, the name! Yes, she will be named Leonor de Todos los Santos".

After a coctail to which they represented the totality of the guests, the Princes of Asturias shared with the Royal Family and the family Ortiz Rocasolano a luncheon in the one that served an inlet, two seconds (to choose one) and several desserts. The cook of the Royal House prepared a salad of fresh pasta to base 'carpaccio' of mushroom and cheese gratinado, and two seconds: hake with cream of nuts and verduritas on the one hand, and sirloin braseado with Madeira's sauce for other one. The desserts - sponge cake of strawberry and sweet of chocolate - were coming from the house Embassy.
In the coctail a 'catering' was served with sausages (ham and Iberian loin), tortilla of potato and a wide variety of fried food, as shrimps with gabardine (one of the favorite appetizers of the Queen) and prawns muffled with a hash of peanut.
