it would be really great if Felipe & Letizia follow the same tradition with la Infanta Leonor after 37 years.

This presentation coresponds to an old tradition of the Spanish royal family that dates back to the reign of Carlos V. It is basically inspired by the Spanish popular beliefs, according to which every woman that has given birth must go to the church, in order to be purified and to present her baby before God. The choice of the Virgin of Atocha is due to the fact that she is the patron of the old Court of Madrid.
