well sis, I think she looks more like Juan and Miguel, since Pablo is almost 100% Borbon, while his three siblings are more Urdangarin

Anyway, these kids got the perfect genetic mix, they are so gorgeous

There's no need to be a genius to learn several languages at once, it all depends on the environment, the travelling, the living and the schooling

acdc1, i guess they have (obviously) mastered both castilian and catalan, since they are more or less their native languages, in Iñaki's house they are spoken in Euskera, so I guess they must at least understand and maybe speak something on that and for the English and French, they are taught that at school, Juan's been in the French school for more or less 3 years, so I guess he has a good understanding of the language; it's been said (even if i cannot assure it completely) that Queen Sofia usually talks in english with them as well, so I guess that must influence something
I was wondering about the English, because in the photoshoot this year in Mallorca, Queen Sofia was kind of leading one of the older kids (I think Juan or Pablo, but maybe one of the Lugos) and I thought I might have heard her say something like "Right here" or "Stop here", but it was very hard to hear because of the cameras.

I think so, I recall that it was very, very hard to hear, because of commentators, cameras flashing, etc., but if you listened it was there.

Many thanks for the information.
Do you know if this name is very used or just used in Spain?
In France is quite an old fashion name,today isn't very frequent to name a little girl like that.

to make it easier:
ee-reh-neh

The sound of the 'I' is a short sound.

I think it's quite a popular name all over the world. Irene is also widely used here in our country, but we pronounce it the American way [as in "eye-reen"].

Here in the UK we pronounce it Eye-reen and it is quite old fashioned. I don't like it personally when pronounced like that however I love it the Spanish pronounciation. It sounds lovely

When you see at the Urdangarin's children, you can see that its Pablo who is taking care the most of his little sister. He is very, vey tender with her, paying attention to her, very, very kind pictures.

I agree on the name, at first I didn't like because of the way it is pronounced in the US but seeing how it is said in Spanish, I love it. It sound so much prettier and no so old lady, sorry no offense meant, it struck me as a name my great aunt would have, especally for such a beautiful little girl.Now I change my mind. LOL
