On Tuesday there will be a small family party in the residence of the princes of Asturias in which the infanta Leonor will blow of her first candle. The day before, the House of the King will distribute to the mass media three photos of the girl on the occasion of her birthday. These portraits are those that they put of manifest that treats itself about the birthday of the heiress of the inheritor and that because of it the celebration has also an institutional facet.
But except these punctual exceptions, the first year of life of the first daughter of don Felipe and dona Letizia is alike in the daily thing that of any baby.
The information that the House of the King facilitates on the small one is scanty. " There is no much that to tell. She is starting speaking and already she gives her first steps ". The prince Felipe in his last acts has made concrete that his daughter stutters " dad and mom " and that the clearest word that she says is "a" "water"., the King, seems to her grandfather that she is called him something similar to "ababa".
Leonor in the last weeks beside climbing full speed for the corridors of the palace of the Zarzuela gives her first steps helped by her parents. " If they take her of the hands already she walks. It is clear that alone she will come untied rapidly ", tell friends of the Princes.
The upbringing of the infanta, the seventh grandson of the kings of Spain, and second in the line of succession to the throne, is normal. " She has given us not even an alone bad night and scarcely she hasn´t had a cold since she was born ", has made clear the proud father.
Even this way the health of the small one has been an object of all kinds of conjectures, " all the groundless ones ", as it is highlighted from the House of the King. " Of this girl it has been said of everything: that if she was deaf, that if she was sick. Barbarities ", says a speaker.
The queen Sofía, knowledgeable of the rumors, in some meetings of photos of this summer in Palma called by her name the small one, who rapidly turned the look towards her grandmother.
The small spot that has in the straight nostril also has been an object of different speculations. The official version is that it is a question of an angioma, something very normal in the babies, that it disappears for yes only.
The one who more has suffered silently all the infundios that have been said of the infanta Leonor in these her first 12 months of life has been the Princess.
Dona Letizia is a protective mother in end, which worries so much of the daily life of the small one as of what is said of her.
Leonor has a babysitter, but if the Princess is in house it is she who is busy with giving her with eating, with bathing her and with playing with her. Those who are employed at the palace of the Zarzuela tell that it is habitual to see dona Letizia pushing Leonor's car for the gardens or leading her in arms to visiting the Kings, whom she sees almost every day.
Dona Letizia also is accustomed to go with her daughter occasionally to the offices of palace in order that they all know the girl.
The Princes at the moment have not thought that Leonor goes to a child-care. " She is very littlt ", has said don Felpe. They have not also decided to what college she will go. But yes it seems that her formation will develop in a private college since it happened with the Prince, that he studied in the Rosales.
When Leonor begins to speak with fluency they will start teaching her English and, then, French. " Her formation will be the necessary one for the role that she has to recover. It will be probably a multidisciplinary education ", says a speaker of the House of the King. Also there is contemplated the possibility that Leonor receives military formation when she is 18 years old if it is the call of reigning. " But still much is absent ", are warned by them in palace.
At the moment, Leonor is charmed with the stories that her mother reads, pawned in that from small gets fond of the literature as her. Her first great change will come in spring when she stops being the only daughter.
