Is Sofia older or younger than Leonor was when she was christened?

Infanta Leonor was born on October 31, 2005 and was baptised on January 14, 2006, which made her 2 months and 14 days old at the time.
Infanta Sofia was born on April 29, 2007 and will be baptised on July 15, which will make her also 2 months and 14 days old on the day.

So both girls are 'of the same age' at the time of Christening.

Is ten weeks old a tradition in the SRF?

I forgot little Sofia was being Christened this weekend - can't wait for new pics.

Not, simply it has been a coincidence. The Royal Family is in the habit of celebrating the baptisms concerning 3 months after the birth. Sofía's baptism is celebrated this day because it was one of the few ones that the whole Royal Family had free, and they wanted to celebrate it before the summer vacations.

I can't wait to see the new pictures, Sofia was such a beautiful newborn, I can't wait to see how she has changed and to see little Leo, who is fast becoming my favorite little girl. It will great to see all the grandchildren together, hopefully we will get a picture of Leo and Irene, I don't think I have ever seen one where they are together.

Yes, it'll be great to see the entire family together before vacation. Will Sofia wear the same gown as her sister, like they do in Denmark, or will they make an entirely new gown for her?

Yes, Sofia will wear the same dress that her sister. It is the dress with which the King was baptized, also the Prince of Asturias, the Infantas and all the grandchildren of the kings.

It probably will not be carried live on TV, nor will there be many photos. Baptisms in the SRF are considered family events. I belive that only one pool photographer and one pool camera will be present and they will distribute a limited number of photos and edited film, just as with Leonor and Irene, most recently. Someone correct me if I am wrong on this.

I may be wrong, but I do not believe that in the case of Leonor or Irene we had photos with all the cousins.

It will be very discrete, as is customary with the SRF.

lucys: you are right, in addiction the baptism will be in the evening, is possible that TVE emits a special program at night.

LA INFANTA SOFÍA SERÁ BAUTIZADA EL PRÓXIMO DOMINGO EN LOS JARDINES DEL PALACIO DE LA ZARZUELA

INFANTA SOFÍA WILL BE BAPTIZED NEXT SUNDAY IN THE GARDENS OF THE PALACE OF LA ZARZUELA

If the weather does not prevent it, the second daughter of Princes de Asturias will receive waters from the Jordán river to the 19:30 of afternoon in the gardens next to the residence of the Kings

19:30? I thought it'd be around 11 or 12.

Anyone knows if it will be broadcasted live on TVE?

In summer, 19.30 is still day, at least in Sapin. It is a normal hour to do a celebration in summer, more if they are going to do it in the garden, because with the heat of Madrid at another hour it would be impossible.
