At the moment it is known that the Infanta has inherited the mouth of her mother, Doña Letizia, and the eyes of her father, Don Felipe. Those who have had the opportunity to see Doña Leonor assure that her "abundant hair" is brown, but that the eyebrows are clear, which makes one think that the definitive hair could be blond. Also her hands and feet are well formed and great.
And although some people see more similarities to the Borbón than to the Ortiz, the Prince of Asturias said that the girl "changes every day" and, at first sight, she "has characteristics of both".

I believe that the opinions about to whom she looks alike or not the girl they are not very objective. Really with the exception of the family of the Princess nobody knew her when she was a girl, for what to extract seemed being adults it is difficult enough.
If the photos of the Princes are seen of small the two were fair, of clear eyes and round face ... later they have changed.

Leonor isn't a princess, is HRH Infanta of Spain. Only the heir to the spanish throne has the title of Prince/Princess. In Spain, right now, the only Prince is Felipe and the only Princess is his wife, Letizia :)

The Princes of Asturias will present tomorrow their daughter Leonor

Hundreds of photographers they wait at the edge of the clinic to immortalize the moment madrid. Tomorrow all the mysteries will clear up themselves. The eyes of thousands of Spanish will go on Monday on the verge of the clinical Ruber Internacional of Madrid to see the exit of the Princes of Asturias and her first-born one the Infanta Leonor. Around ten o'clock in the morning, the proud parents will take direction to the Palace of Zarzuela to enjoy their daughter in an environment of major intimacy.

A legion of cameras and photographers they wait for a few days in the door of the clinic Ruber of Madrid to know Dona Leonor. You upset one week after the illumination, which took place three weeks before the foreseen, the Princess of Asturias and her daughter will leave the room number ten of the hospitable center to go to their house to resting.
The doctors who attend to the Princess and to her daughter, at the head of that there is the gynaecologist Luis Ignacio Recasens, who has attended to the pregnancy and the childbirth, decided on Friday to give them of discharge on Monday, the 7th, since the recovery takes place without any type of complications.
In these days, the small Infanta has been recovering slowly forces and weight, thanks to the mother lactation and taken care of the personnel of the clinic, making possible that on Monday produces her exit to the street. For the first time in her life Leonor de Borbón will face multitude of cameras that will chase her from this moment until the end of her days.

FLASHES AND MORE FLASHES

The most probable thing is that this first public presentation scarcely lasts a few minutes, the sufficient thing in order that all the photographers and cameras could catch the first public image of the one who is called to be, in its day, A Queen of Spain. The longest presentations with the rest of the family will take place in the next weeks when the official obligations allow it.

Don Felipe has supported his agenda this week and during the close ones also he has foreseen to come to diverse public acts, meanwhile,Doña Letizia will be useful to the maximum next days to be with her daughter before rejoining to her habitual labor. The most probable thing is that the princess recaptures the official public activities after the Christmas holidays, date in which also this one foreseen Dona Leonor's baptism.

On the verge of the Clinic where the Infanta came to the world, they wait in these numerous curious moments together with the mass media to follow closely everything related to Dona Leonor. Tomorrow they will see their curiosity satisfied. She will have the mouth of her mother and the eyes of her father like some have risked to assure?.

During the weekend, Don Felipe also has been in the clinic, where today, Sunday, it has been a calm day, without visits. A spokesman of the Royal House informed last Friday on the possibility that, this weekend, and before mother and daughter left the clinic, Erika and Thelma Ortiz Rocasolano (the sisters of the Princess) could go to the clinic to see their niece. Until this afternoon, the presence of both sisters (who are absent of Madrid during all the week in business trips to Bilbao and Thailand) had not been registered by the photographers who are stationed in front of the Rúber, although it is not discarded the possibility of them entering by a lateral door.

It is a typical vegetable of Asturias, which is small and round...It is a graceful and affectionate commentary. The "fabes" are the most famous food of Asturias.

Fabina is a diminutive for bean. It’s an affective way the Asturian people have to call someone who is very beautiful, as bean is a very typical plate of Asturias. The expression was used by Henar Ortiz (maternal aunt of Princess Letizia), who said that the baby was handsome "like a bean".

Thank you! Are you still on, Elsa? If so, what is the difference in a child being called "una monada" and "monisima" -- is una monada "a cutie" and "monisima" very cute?

Probably they have entered another door, Paloma the first two days entered another site and not the principal door. The certain thing is that if I was Thelma I would not enter this door either, the poor has owed of taking a great surprise when she has found out about all the rumors that were relating her to Alberto of Monaco.
Already we will find out.

i second you on that : i'm a very proud owner of the name "jelena" (i'm from serbia-montenegro), which represents a variation of greek "eleni" ("elene"), spanish/italian "elena", german "helena", french "hélène" etc etc

it's a name of a greek origin, coming from the greek word for light, sunlight, sunshine (which is "helenos", not sure about the spelling)!

so, in french, we traduce it as "un rayon de soleil", and in english, it would be "a ray of sunlight/sunshine" :) :) :)

The Queen Sofia has said at some time that her daughter was called Elena by a doll that she had when she was a girl, and she wanted that the first daughter was calling this way. The certain thing, in which the history of Spain is not a common name, though nowadays yes it is.
