They just did a really nice piece on Infanta Leonor on the USA's spanish language station Univision--but I wonder where they got one fact: they claim the baptism will be at the Basilica de Atocha. I highly doubt that!

I also doubt it. In recent years, all baptisms were hold the the chapel of Zarzuela Palace. I don´t see that be different now :) The only that wa said about this, was CP Felipe himself saying that the baptism will be, probably, after Christmas (for all be arranged with time) and the Kings saying that the godparents and date weren´t chosen yet.

Infanta Elena went out for the large weekend (i read something that they went skiing in Austria) and Infanta Cristina is in Barcelona, were she lives (she said to the press that due to her children school maybe only in a few days they´ll see little Leonor).

Christina lives in Barcelona and her boys are in school.
As far as Elena is concerned, maybe she is planning to visit tomorrow or in a few days.
It is always nice to give the new parents a few days to be with their child privately. Of course, one can never keep away the grandparents!

In TVE (i think...) said that the Infanta Elena and her family are in Soria with the mother of Jaime de Marichalar.

There are so many interesting articles and opinion pieces in the press today (I must stop reading them all), but one of the most curious observations I saw was one regarding rain and water. It mentioned that rain is a symbol of abundance and blessings and pointed out that on both the day of their wedding and the night of their daughter's birth (in the midst of a year of draught) Felipe and Letizia were infamously accompanied by heavy rains--and then added the observation that Leonor was born under one of the water signs. Curious, no?

That's a very interesting analysis of things lucys! I always find such analysis fascinating. In highschool English I thought it was overkill to see significance in a cake that was iced with white frosting as a symbol of innocence, but I think the explanation of the rain on Felipe and Letizia's wedding day and the rain on Lenor's birthnight (early morning) is an ironic happenstance.

In a way it makes me think that it appropriate as Felipe and Letizia are not the type who take their abudance and blessings for granted. They have not taken their positions as royals for granted, and have worked very hard to represent Spain. And I'm sure that they will pass on the same dedication and commitment to their daughter and not take her for granted either.

hmm... cross my fingers... i'm hoping they do this birth the belgian way (when prince emmanuel was born).. with a first photo with the family (include felipe, letizia, and maybe the king & queen), then, press conference when they left the hospital. and more more visits from the royal family (the infantas & more of king & queen). let's just hope..

More from the happy new father from the press conference (from ANP with minimal watermark) :




perhaps felipe also thought it will be a boy & wore the blue tie.. it would've been cute if he wear a pink tie.. the king and infanta wore orange tie, so does letizia's father.. a new colour for house of borbon?
oh well... i cannot wait to see the 1st picture of the new infanta...

ps. is there more picture when felipe left & return again to clinica ruber? thanks...

Love the queen's "round" hand gesture ... I can't wait to see this chubby baby! :) I've been watching entirely too much TVE from the link provided in this thread, especially because my grasp of Spanish extends basically to "hello" and "where am I?" I'm just hoping to see the first pictures of little Leonor as soon as possible!
