Telma and a cousin of Felipe(A Gomez cousin : Bruno or Beltran) or
Telma and Inaki
Telma and Jaime
I don't really mean the godfather but I really hope it'll be Telma who will be the godmother

i'd be inclined to say either elena or cristina, but at the same time i think either letizia's mum or sister thelma will be chosen as well, so i doubt they choose 2 godmothers, as there has always been the tradition in the spanish family of choosing men-women.

i'd then say perhaps iñaki or jaime de marichalar and menchu, thelma or paloma.

I don't know. It's a problem because Felipe has 2 sisters and Letizia has one sister. If he oder she had a brother... But I think that Telma will be godmother and a friend of Felipe will be godfather

The godmother will be queen Sofia, no?? When the girl is named Sofia...

Queen Sofia is Leonor's godmother, so I do not think she will be Infanta Sofia's godmother even though little Sofia was named after her grandmother.

I never thought about this before, but maybe Paloma Rocasolano? Leonor has her paternal grandparents as godparents, and now little Sofía also has her paternal grandmother's name... So maybe it is Paloma's turn, and not Thelma's out of Letizia's family?
I don't know, there are so many choices for the godmother, but not very many for the godfather....

I think about Paloma too and about Elena.

It looks that Letizia has better relationships with Elena and Jaime than Cristina (that's only my opinion!).

But as paternal grandparents were/are godparents of Laonor than maternal should be Sofia's. It would be nice gesture.

Yes, I agree, I think it is Elena rather than Cristina; and Elena is also the older one, so it seems logical that it would be "her turn first".

Godmother maybe Elena.. and godfather I wouldn't know, maybe Prince Pavlos of Greece although he's not catholic so maybe not.

I think it would be Elena and Jaime, but I would prefer Cristina and Iñaki, but in these two possibilities we have problems since King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia are Leonor's grandparents and we would have just Felipe's relatives as godparents. Maybe they will chose Telma and some Felipe friend or relative.

I think Infanta Elena and Jaime. Both Infantas seem to be very close to the Princes but Elena is older so she should have precedence, but who knows...

I believe Elena and Letizia are close so Elena might be the godmother.

I'm 99% sure that Telma will be a godmother and a godfather one of the Gomez-Acebos or Zuritas or maybe another cousin/friend. One of the Infantas is a possible choice too, I like them both so don't really care which one of them , probably Elena, as she is older and leaves in Madrid, so near little Sofia.

I think Thelma (now Letizia only has a sister, so she will be more near to the girl) and Marichalar or Urdangarin...

I didn't know queen Sofia already was godmother of Leonor..yes you are right, it would be strange to have two same godmothers for both children
