I'm used to strictly choregraphed royal events in which all involved knows from A to Z what is his or her role. This also adds to the dignity in which royal events are 'done'.

I'm a bit surprised to see that two shakey camera's were allowed to pee over the shoulder of one of the clergymen and that photographers were walking anc clicking during such a precious and solemn moment as a baptizing by the Archbishop of Madrid....

During Dutch royal events (weddings, funerals, baptims) the Court always gives strict orders that "it must be like there is no media around". This means small hidden wireless camera's hanged high under a roof, in a chandelier, behind a pillar and controlled via joysticks. The same policy is applied in the United Kingdom. Also there royal events are so prepared that the royals have a minimum as possible hindrance from media.

I found the whole ceremony a bit unquiet. But of course this is just an observation. No critics. For sure not on the little Infanta.

It does look like it, I think he is just serious but he adores his grandkids. I can't really tell who the Sofia looks like. They are absolutely adorable! This is the first time I see Letizia since the death of her sister looking happy. She looks beautiful!

What is the name of the pacifier that Sofia uses, and is it the same type her sister used when she was a baby?

Thank you for the list mapian!
According to the guestlist, the only foreign Royals were Prince and Princess Vidin (since Princess Irene didn't attend).

Dont get me wrong, but I found Leonor a bit bratty, (Christian remained quiet on his sister's christening and they are about the sam age, im not comparing just making a point here) of course it was not the time for Letizia to correct her.

I'm glad to see the Ortiz Rocasolano family smiling after they terrible tragedy

Have you ever been around a toddler? She behaved like any almost 2 year old would royal or not.

Hmmm, not too long ago she was called strange, emotionless, deaf, etc. I guess like her mother she will never win. Would you call Amalia and Ingrid or any toddler bratty too?
