As far as I can see, Letizia has one more bracelet on her right hand, I suppose with Sofia's name (just like with Leonor's) - I think that's a nice symbol

Thanks for all the pics & videos! So many things have been said already, so just a few observations from my side:

- I found the Queen's outfit a bit casual, almost like a Mallorca summer holiday outfit
- As usual the King muss less enthusiastic at family events as the Queen
- I usually don't say anything about the CP's kids because I think they are all cute and even if I didn't think so I wouldn't mention because I don't like critizising a child for looks. They change so often anyway! In Leonor's case I have to say that she is such a cute and funny girl, one to steal with her curls. I can't understand all the critizism about her behaviour, she's not even 2 years old (but looks much older), she's a lively and curious child, leave her be! She will have to walk the line early enough!
- Telma looked great, a beauty!
- Menchu has aged very much
- Letizia: I loved her outfit and hairdo and see her smile again but breastfeeding is already taking its toll so her full face has gone. Hope she stops before she's skin and bone again
- Wow, Paloma is such an attractive woman. Would be great if she found a new partner as Jesus has.

I hope F & L will have much more time to enjoy their family life with their two girls before they have to take over from JC.

... forgot to mention that I hope Cristina will stop dressing her boys like lookalikes at such events ... they deserve their own outfits!

this family is really adorable and beautiful
as always Laetizia was so pretty and elegant, her dress was very suitable for the event and season
the infantas are too cute, the baby is lovely, and leonara is so sweet
about the happy Dad, he was really handsome
I like also what wore laetizia's sister, it seems that the good taste is a enheritage of Ortiz family

I am not spanish so I might not know the traditions but what is this obsession with Letizia to tell the press about her breastfeeding? Is she going for the Spanish Mother of The Year award by telling everybody how she feeds her baby or that she will "devote" herself to her baby for the next months? It's a private issue and I find it rather strange that she keeps discussing it in public as if she wants to prove everybody that she is the perfect mother.

it may be private for some but there are women who consider breastfeeding a crusade, and maybe Princess Letizia wants to champion that. women may find it easy to surrender to the bottle when the breastfeeding gets tough and we all know that the latter is always the healthiest for babies. it needs a change in attitude about how 'private' or 'embarrassing' breastfeeding is because we're talking about children's health here.

and i saw clips from España Directo and Telediario Matinal and i just can't get over Leonor's curls. what a beautiful child. So is little Sofia; she seems so alert with those huge eyes (i call them Sofi's Saucers) i missed Irene though.

and i just find it uncanny how Telma looks more and more like her mom Paloma as time goes. she looks smashing! she's even more beautiful in person; i remember when i saw her that she has sharp features but her smile, eyes, and profile lend a soft and feminine side.

The explanation is simple. According to the Royal House, the Princess, is not strictly of permission for maternity, but she is in period of breatsfeeding. It is to say that as her is the one that feeds the baby, has to fit her schedules to the girl and as she does not have public activity. To feed a baby is slightly natural, I do not find any problem in saying it. In case of the Princess, to say it with naturalness is the best thing that she can do. In addition, this it is the onlyway of which the press understands that a baby like Sofia has a few schedules on which her mother depends.

Yes, Carla was, but it seems that the family does not want to expose her to the press.

Great pictures! My favorites are the ones of the kids. Felipe the Younger seems to cross his arms a lot in pictures, he looks as if he'd rather be anywhere else than where he was! Juan and Pablo were very well-behaved, with their arms behind their backs, like little men. Miguel was just bored and hot, I think! I also liked the one of Pablo and Irene with Iñaki. It was a sweet moment of father and children. Irene has grown up a lot, and her hair has some curls in it, which is too cute. Pablo is a handsome boy, his cousin Leonor reminds me a lot of him, because both of them are pretty Borbon-looking, and they both have angels'-faces.
