there is a creepy photoshop of leonor in communion outfit but other than that the article confirms what has already been said before, leonor will take communion with her class mates in a low key ceremony, families sit in alphabetical order and have a bench for themselves. more or less six people fit in, in leonors case her parents, both sets of grandparents and possibly her sister sofia.
communion is set to take place on may 20 at 11:30am.

By the way, JC is the only member of the SRF who has an event scheduled on May 20th, he will attend a bullfight in Madrid, probably in the evening.

Hope he will attend his granddaughter's communion, for her's sake...

There will be no official photos from casareal but the press can film and take pictures when the royal family enters or leaves the church.

It will be the first time that the SRF will be photographed together since Felipe became King.

Still odd that everybody is actually dressed for a first Communion except the child making it. I understand the reasons behind it -it's not to be a fashion show, but look at how Leonor's mother and sister are dressed!

Totally my point! If I were an onlooker who doesn not who is the child that will receive the Communion I would totally say it is Sofia!

But the whole family seem veyr happy and that is what matters after all... I hope Leonor will enjoy this special day!

It's not the family's fault - they are following the rules. But the whole thing is ridiculous. I've seen this family get together for Easter Mass. How does one dress casually for Easter Mass and dress to the nine's for a First Communion????

I made my own First Communion, admittedly in the year 1417 AD or thereabouts, before we were so "englightened" , but, much as I recall the dress, the gloves, the shoes, the fuss over my hair - what I most recall WAS the solemnity, the butterflies in my stomach at the thought, the first time I received the host. That I recall clearly, as if it were yesterday. I don't recall what it was like to wear the dress and all the rest of it that I see in the photos.

Maybe it is a cultural thing but to me wearing a uniform for the Communion i a very belwidering concept... I wouldn't expect Leonor to be dressed to the nines but the tradition of a simple white dress or a tunic would be logic... Or at least Sofia should have been dressed with her uniform too... Don't know, but that lovely white dress Sofia is sporting makes me associate it with Holy Communion...

Most people in Spain wear everyday clothes to mass, no matter if it's Easter, and will dress up for baptisms, first communions and weddings. The RF is even a bit dressed up for a normal Easter mass, people wear jeans etc...

Same as in the US... BUT, if the school uniform for a first communion is to mark the solemnity of the occasion, meaning you are such a devout Catholic, theoretically, wouldn't you dress up for Easter Mass more so than a first communion where the child is dressed drably?

Also, why would you dress like you are going to a coronation at your daughter's dress-down First Communion and show up in trousers for Easter?

None of this makes any sense to me. And believe me, I am president of the Letizia fan club.

It is nice to see the whole family, everyone looked very happy. I think I have never seen Leonor smile so much. Letizia and younger Sofia looked lovely in their outfits. I'm not catholic, so I think that of course you dress "better" to your daughters first communion than to an Easter mass.
I find it a great solution that the communion is made in school uniforms. Everyone looks nice and the same and there is no competition who has the most beautiful/expensive dress.

The difference is: Easter Mass, Nativity Mass, etc. are every year. Year in, year out. The First Communion is a one-in-a-lifetime affair and marks that someone is a full 'member' of the Catholic Church. Plenty of reasons to dress up for a First Communion.

In France the children tend to wear white tunics.

I don't really see the issue, to me your post is what doesn't make sense . The school decides that every child will be in uniform so nobody stands out, it has nothing to do with each family's devotion. Furthermore, a first communion is a special day for the child and the family that only takes place once in their lifetime.
