It's an enchanting card of the princesses - they have grown up so much! I like the fact that Felipe & Letizia do a family picture, a modern style, and Juan Carlos and Sofia go for a more traditional theme - this always gets be torn when sending out cards!

I immensely enjoyed the card! The girls looks beautiful and their hug was so heartwarming! Still, I would have liked a new photos, not one taken back in October...

Those girls are so beautiful now, they will be down right gorgeous when they are older. I hadn't realized how pretty they were until now. Dad will have to have an army to keep the boys away I think or else mom will do it.

That article about the girls being mocked is quite harsh IMO...

Agree. People are so jealous and nasty. Most have no real pleasant life themselves so they just try to pull others down to their level instead of making an effort to raise their own personalities upward. Feel sorry for them. Must be awful to live a life always negative. Not what we are here for.

It says something about a person whos only reaction is to mock the girls looks and teeth.

Why even post these nasty comments on this site?

The Daily Mail seems to attract people with a tendency to post nasty vile comments,best to ignore such horrid pitiful excuses of humanity.

Especially when they attack innocent children. Sotimes I think that's why there are so many young bullies: they learn from ther adult bullies parents...

I really love this year's Christmas card - Leonor and Sofia are beautiful and I love how warm the photo is. It's so sweet to see such affection between the two sisters.

Christmas is meant to be a time of goodwill, so I can't understand why some people feel the need to make nasty unnecessary comments about the girl's appearance. I think they have lovely smiles, and they are children who are still growing into their features, so it's harsh to criticise how they look. Remarks like this also sometimes make children and young people very self-conscious about their appearance. Hopefully Leonor and Sofia won't hear of the comments.

Those comments are from Spanish twitter users, not posters on this forum. In general I like the creativeness of twitter, but not in this case, as children should be protected and the girls are in the very age where their teeth are still forming, and it looks like they'll get braces and will only have finished teeth in a few years time. This applies to other royal children too.

If they still have the same kind of teeth as adults, well, that would be a different matter. In general, the girls will have to live with this kind of mockery for the rest of their lives like most other public persons, they need to learn not to take it personally but to understand it as freedom of speech/satire, especially as the royal house has no history of taking on the press in that respect. Felipe and Letizia have been subject to such jokes on a daily basis for many years.

I like the card by Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía. After all it is a Christmas card... What is more Christmas than the birth of the Christ? The picture of the two young girls hugging each other was everything but a Christmas card in my humble opinion. It is also a sign of the King too scared to depict Christian symbols, beware for the Political Correct Brigade...

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima tried to combine Christmas and to avoid Christian symbols too, also a capture to political correctness but okay, it still has a Christmas feel as a Christmas card should have. And the message (a multicultural society in harmony) is clear: picture (click on the picture to enlarge).

Though the photo of Leonor & Sofia is lovely I wish it was a bit more festive,over the past few years Felipe/Letizia,Elena and Cristina have all used family photos.

that photo created a lot of polemic, with people making fun of Leonor standing on only one leg.
