Oh, gosh. In the ones you posted, Felipe looks more like Mr. Bean than himself, and Letizia looks at least twenty years older than she actually is, and I think they got her hair colour incorrect too. It looks ginger/auburn on her wax version, whereas in real life I think she is brown/chestnut. I take it that it is not Madame Tussauds Madrid (if there is a Madame Tussauds in Madrid, that is).

Whilst I understand that she is the Princess of Asturias, I find it a little creepy that they would make a wax model of a little girl. I can understand them making wax models of adults and don't have a problem with that, but this is just very strange and as I said, creepy.

La Zarzuela afirma que la Primera Comunión de Leonor “pertenece al ámbito privado”

La Zarzuela says Leonor First Communion "is a private matter".

The first communions in the Royal Family have always been considered private and family events, although after the Royal House allowed or give some pictures.

In May they will announce when, where and how they have decided to celebrate it... but not 6 months prior.

So far we have seen pictures of all grandchildren of the old kings, why should leonor be an exception as she is the most important one for the instituion. We have seen pictures of Felipe and the Infantas too.

If the communion takes place in Zarzuela, F&L are in control and can provide a few authorized pictures. If Leonor has her communion with her classmates in a public place and public church, it will be much more difficult as other children are involved, there will be lots of media coverage, not all parents will be happy about having this special day disturbed by the media/their children photographed because of one famous classmate.

I dont like the thought of both girls doing their communion together, it should be a separate event where each girl takes center stage, otherwise Sofia will be again in the shadow of her older sister.

While Felipe was officially introduced as Prince of Austrias in Covadonga, Asturias at the age of 9, the Royal House says that at this stage it is unclear if Leonor will follow this schedule at all, if there is an official introduction and if so, where the ceremony will take place, Asturias or Madrid.

The other big question remains the first communion of Leonor, the Royal House will not confirm a date despite increasing calls from the media.

I'm thinking the First Holy Communion of the Princess will be a private family affair at the chapel of Zarzuela maybe in May?

I hope that comply with the tradition, and Leonor submitted at Covadonga.

I hope so, too. Covadonga is such a beautiful place, so symbolic and full of History, and I'm sure the ceremony would be beautiful and moving in such a setting. Also, even if they don't do it in Covadonga at all, I can't think on that ceremony being hold in Madrid. That would be a great mistake, IMO.

Come on, F&L, the people of Asturias want to receive and compliment their Princess. Let them do it!
