I love the pictures but I was really hoping they could have 1 picture with all of the family. Leonor and Sofia are both lovely little girls. F&L must be proud parents. Elena's one creative shot while the Urdangarin's picture looked like their last Christmas cards. The Kings picture is lovely too but I was hoping for a more colorful shot like the gardens of the Royal Palace.

Spanish royals play it safe after photoshop scandals with Christmas card of palace - Telegraph

A long time ago, the Xmas pictures of the SRF were full of warmth and family charm, nowadays it seems to have become an unpleasant duty. Dull buildings, photoshop, same type of kids pictures every year.

I wonder why Infanta Leonor didnt sign the Asturias card, if Irene can write her name Leonor should be able to do the same.

^what? is there any obligation for leonor to do it?
maybe she didnt want to. or she cant write her name that well, shes only 5.
just because irene could do it, it doesnt mean that leonor can.
i remenber when i went to school at age 6, i knew already how to write some letters (and i never attended pre-school) and my brother who was on pre-school (kindergarden) was never able to do so, and he learnt on 1st year of primary school.
each kid learns at his own...

.
I hate it when journalists make stupid and sloppy mistakes like this one. She works in Madrid, it's not a breaking news story, she's had time to check all the facts and those cards were all over the papers here with a description of every picture. It's not a picture of Zarzuela Palace, it's the Royal Palace
And how nice of her to write about impersonal and cold cards, showing only the King and Queen's card of the Royal Palace when the other three families had warm pictures of the whole family or the children

I agree, she did a mistake. But she was right in the essencial thing: it seems that Spanish Royals doesn't want to release Christmas Cards as they've done some years ago. It seems like Christmas is a date that they didn't like...

Leonor and Sofía are beatiful girls - and it seems they are bright too, their eyes saids so -, this is clear and I like them a lot. but I wonder what kind of Infantas they will become ...And just think that Infanta Leonor could be named Heir of the throne. If she will be Queen of Spain , I hope she'll release Christmas Cards, because Spanish people are most of them believers and should want to see their Royal Family celebrating Jesus birth in the same way they do in their own homes.

Vanesa.

"If she will be Queen of Spain , I hope she'll release Christmas Cards, because Spanish people are most of them believers and should want to see their Royal Family celebrating Jesus birth in the same way they do in their own homes."

I disagree with you Vanesa. If and when Leonor becomes Queen of Spain, Spain itself will be such a diverse melting pot of cultures and religions, that she'll be obliged by law not to discriminate any of her subjects. Same as it is now.

I sometimes have the impression a lot of people outside Spain still have a concept of the country, his people and culture that's completely outdated and almost medieval. Spain may still be majorly Catholic today (a discussion for another thread) but that statistic does not represent the reality of our country - at least half of that percentage are not practising, don't care or are agnostic/atheist.

Spain's autochthonous population has one of the lowest fertility rates in the world and is only thanks to migrants that Spain's demographics have suffered a welcoming boom. With that immigration, comes diversity...and new Spaniards may not pray to Jesus but they are as much Spaniards as the rest

As to the Telegraph editorial, I couldn't be bothered to read it. It's the Telly and is always slow on the news front this close to Christmas. They have to make their own

Everyone's talking about the girls. How come no one noticed Pablo Urdangarin? He's gotten so handsome over the years.

Lovely cards! I really enjoy seeing of the royal Christmas cards every year. Leonor & Sofia are both growing so fast, it seems. They're beautiful little girls.

people notice, the thing is, the girls get so much more attention since they are the daughters of the future monarchs of spain. (its not discrimination, its a normal thing actually, see ALL of the other monarchies, and watch the popularity of the children of heirs and the children of a "normal" royal family)
its reality, we were put under spell by that 2 little cuties!!!!

Xmas cards should be out any day now, in comparison to previous years there are already overdue.

Will be interesting to see whether there is a Palma card or Infantas card in general this year. If so, Inaki is better not on it.

They'll be out. What's the point in creating drama where there is none, Duke?

They aren't. Last year they were out on December 16, the previous year on December 18. We'll see them next week.

Wonderful cards! Someone in the royal household must have been reading TRF and seen us wondering when the cards would be issued!!

BEAUTIFUL pictures!!!! but still waiting for bigger versions^^

the princes with Leonor and Sofia card is so sweet, and Leonor's handwriting is so pretty for a girl with just 6 years old, on the other side Irene's handwriting fits the girl age.
the card with Felipe Froilan and Victoria is so cute with the dog.
too bad for the Duchess of Palma's card, its not a new picture;_;

I absolutely love the heart next to Victoria's name, so cute. Also Elena's kids are absolutely gorgeous, Felipe is growing up to be such a handsome young man.
My favourite card is Felipe and Letizia's, it's very beautiful and I think Leonor looks extremely much like Letizia, whereas Sofia looks like Felipe.
I agree that Cristina's picture is a bit boring since we've seen it before, but obviously it's been a big day for the family so they wanted to capture it and show it to everyone (again).
Lovely cards.
