Is it some sort of tradition in the SRF for boys to wear sailor outfits on first communion? Of course, when Alfonso's picture was taken, most royal boys wore sailor outfits at one point, but I noticed for Infanta Elena's son (Felipe?) wore one too for his first communion.

Crown prince Felipe wore a suit that I believe was not a sailor outfit. But I guess it also depends on the school they go to. Felipe didn't take his comunion on his school (I believe), but his cousin Froilan did. And at this school it was a custom for all boys to be dressed in sailor outfits, which is why he wore one as well.

What is the religion in Sweden? I tought confirmation was only for Catholics and Orthodox.. Im catholic and i was almost 18 when i took my confirmation, I remember the priest was pretty strict about the age.. I was 16 when I entered, you have to take a 2 year catechesis course.

On April 4, 1790, Princess Marie Therese of France received her First Holy Communion.
Her father, King Louis XVI, was not allowed to attend.

Some Protestant denominations do have Confirmation for young people.

The Church of England has Confirmation too, but other than members of the BRF I don't know how often British teens are confirmed.
