The Kings prepare a family celebration for the birthday of the Princess of Asturias that will be a private act. Zarzuela has no plans to distribute a gallery of photographs of Leonor on the occasion of her tenth anniversary.
Los reyes preparan una celebración familiar por el cumpleaños de la princesa de Asturias

Its really poor that casareal doesnt publish a photo on the occasion of Leonor's 10th birthday since she doesn't even have a recent picture on the website, its over 2 years old.

Nobody is asking for pictures from the actual birthday party but I don't get what is so bad about a portait a la Christian of Denmark to remember the occasion of her 10th birthday. Even the Dutch with their strict media code give pictures, even from private occasions, from time to time. Leonor is Princess of Asturias now, there is no harm in building relations between her and the public by publishing photos apart from the few parents-controlled-choreographed outings they have during the year.

Well, at some point Leonor will be older and can't be hidden away any longer, the press will go crazy about her anyway.

Seriously; I was so sure that there will be official photos for the 10 birthday of the princess as the prince Christian in Denmark. We said to protect the childhood of Leonor but mercy.

Princess Leonor is blonde with beautiful blue eyes. Those who know try to underline that she is always a good student, loving, very polite, friendly and shy. So what is the problem with the Princess of Asturias?

The problem is that we see her very little. The problem is that some people think that the Princess of Asturias should be more visible, more present, you should know more about her. But this idea clashes with the iron will of the Queen that her eldest daughter should have a childhood as normal as possible.

Leonor is a girl of ten years, but Leonor also is the heir to the throne of Spain and a matter of State.

Her mother, Letizia, has fought long for the privacy of Princess Leonor. There even have been disagreements between the Kings because of it. A clear example took place in the celebration mass in memory of Don Juan de Borbon, on the anniversary of the centenary of his birth. King Philip VI wanted his daughters attending but Queen Letizia opposed. The girls were not there. That day the Kings seemed distant and apart.

It must be difficult to put the line separating a mother from a Queen in the right place. The line between your nine year old daughter and heiress to the throne. King Philip VI may see it in a less complicated way because he has lived a childhood as heir.

The harshest critics emphasize that children of other Royal Houses have participated in acts of representation being smaller than the Princess Leonor. But, again, it is not easy to know how to distinguish what you should do as a little girl and what you should do as crown princess. This is the problem with Princess Leonor.

Sofia and Leonor attended the National Day military parade. I am pretty sure that, as she gets older, Leonor will step up her public appearances.

King Felipe has given Princess Leonor the Order of the Golden Fleece on the occasion of her 10th birthday. Also the government has officially approved the new standard of the Princess of Asturias.

The King has given his eldest daughter, Princess of Asturias, the highest award that can be granted, the Collar of the Golden Fleece. It is a symbolic recognition, without privileges beyond the protocol, in the case of Princess Leonor due to reasons of tradition and continuity and the desire to institutionalize the figure of the Princess of Asturias and heir to the throne. Until the reign of Don Juan Carlos, the Fleece was reserved for men.
The awarding of the Golden Fleece, a personal recognition of the King and not a state award is hailed Friday by the Council of Ministers and the Royal Decree will be published tomorrow in the Official Gazette, coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the birth Princess of Asturias. Fleece King impose his daughter in a ceremony whose date has not yet been made public.

The Cabinet today approved another Royal Decree that the script and the Standard of the Princess of Asturias is created and regulate its use in public spaces and places for the events presided by Leonor. The script of the Princess is very similar to that used Don Felipe while he was Crown Prince. His background is also the blue flag of the Principality of Asturias, as was his father until he was proclaimed King and chose a crimson red script. The decree also be published tomorrow in the Official Gazette coinciding with the birthday of Princess.

That is a great surprise and amazing news! I'm very excited for that ceremony now, hope it will be soon!

It's such a sweet gesture from Felipe to bestow his daughter and heir the first Golden Fleece of his reign. And an awesome birthday gift, I guess (though I'm not sure if Leonor will fully appreciate how important and special this gift from dad is, she probably will be more like: "daddy, I told you I wanted an Ipad" or something along those lines )

Leo is just the fourth woman to receive the Golden Fleece, and the first one that is not a monarch. The three others are Elizabeth II, Margrethe of Denmark and Beatrix of the Netherlands

Royal Decree was announced today at the Council of Ministers, but will be published tomorrow, on the birthday of Princess, in the Official Gazette. The design of the standard will be published tomorrow.

I agree. Leonor is the Princess of Asturias. As a matter of fact, there should be a protocol. Both Leonor and Sofia should have their pictures taken and given to the press on their birthdays. They are the RFS.

I hope the Royal House to publish at least one official photo of Leonor. They are 10 years and must be new photos.

The Princess of Asturias receives the Golden Fleece from her father the King on occasion of her 10th birthday tomorrow. The ceremony's date is unknown, yet. This is the first Golden Fleece given from Felipe VI and Leonor is the first Spanish woman to receive it.
It is highest personal decorations a Spanish King can give.

This was a huge surprise because people were waiting for pics.

But Bekia is all about gossip, they (and other magazines) tell the news in a determinate way to create unnecessary confusion, now the people will believe he gives Leonor a gold chain because she want it or something when in history the master of the order, the King, gave this order to the heir when he was an infant, Felipe was an exception, Juan Carlos received his when he was 2 or 3 years old. Actually Leonor is the fourth woman to receive this order and the first one as heir.

Nice coat of arms ! If Catalonia leaves Spain and becomes a republic though, as it is the announced intention of the current Catalan government, will the arms of the kingdom of Aragon be removed ? And if the Basque Country also left following Catalan independence, would the arms of Navarre be scrapped too?

No other European royal heir has such an uncertain future as the young Princess of Asturias; Elisabeth of Belgium is probably a distant second, but is still in a far more comfortable position than her fifth (?) cousin.

Aragon was much more than Catalonia and Navarra is not the Basque Country. Most of what's now the Basque Country was actually part of the Kingdom of Castile.

So they give the highest order in Spain to Leonor on the occasion of her 10th birthday, with a strong symbolic meaning that she is the future queen, but at the same time they refuse a picture because her 10th birthday is a private occasion.
