I am a bit surprised to read that. Long white dresses are the standard ingredient of Roman-Catholic communions, I thought. At my own communion I wore a blue velvet suit with white pantalon, like all boys did, and my sister wore a long white gown, like all girls did.

No, not true, its not standard. Its about personal taste, my own dress had knee length, some of my girlfriends had long dresses. For the girls, there was a variety of all styles/lengths. The boys usually go in suits.

Infanta Leonor's First Holy Communion

I should ask my mom what length hers was. She was baptized in the church and grew up a practicing Catholic, and she and my dad even got married in the Catholic Church, even though they had a low mass (my dad grew up United, but wasn't baptized; and neither are me and my brothers) But like I said, we don't practice any particular branch of Christianity; our parents want us to pick our own religion (or not, it's entirely up to us, as long as we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ).

Yes you are correct. In my cousin's parish, all girls were required to wear the exact same dress and veil, carrying the same white missal and rosary beads. The boys also wore same short legged white suits. All diocese in many states apply different rules for many reasons. There is no rule from Rome.

Today Leonor appears on the cover of several magazines. Apparently in her school children make their First Communion a year later than usual, and she will follow the same rate as her classmates, so it will be next year.

Thanks Lula, do we know anything about Irene Urdangarin?

Usually kids are 9 years old on their communion, so nothing wrong to wait a year.
