I think I never had realized before, but this photo made me think about Sofia's resemblance to Felipe. The had the very same expression

It's a beautiful and warm family picture, I'm just surprised they couldn't get a pic where also Leo was looking at the camera

The traditional card from King JC and Queen Sofia is a classic, but for once I especially like this year's bas-relief, beautiful.

Wonderful traditional card from Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía. It shows what Christmas is all about: the nativity.

I love the traditional one from Juan Carlos and Sofia. Beautiful

The total family one us such a war, family picture. One thing stands out that Leonor is not wearing a maroon/rust anything. Her mom has a coat, her sister a sweater and dad a tie. Though I like her sweater.

YOU mean Leonor. The queen and king and Sofía all wear maroon.

Its a very nice picture of the family, too bad they do not publish any photos on a regular basis (except for Christmas).

Leonor is probably at that age when she is now permitted to chose for herself. All parents have gone thru this. We just pick our battles.

Lovely cards indeed. I like that Felipe's family card is from Leonor's trip to Asturias.

I was thinking one of the photos from the visit to Asturias would be used.

No nativity scene from King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia

I've never liked the practice of sending photos of yourself on a Christmas card, just what has that got to do with Christmas? A nice nativity would be much better.

Sadly it seems to be common practice now and nothing even festive looking on the cards.
