i think the SRF finally got it right this time! the pics are absolutely gorgeous. as for the Kings' photo, there were probably too many people coaching them to pose, to smile, that it seemed nobody was really paying attention to where the camera really is.

super two-thumbs up to the Princes' family too! i just love seeing Sofi--that round little chubby baby just makes me giggle and want to cuddle her. and i can see that Leo's hair is getting darker now (and i think she has her mother's eyebrows too).

i can't wait to see the cards for the Infantas. i can't wait to see Irene; she's so big now and she's changed so much too.

Love it. No photoshop. Everyone has two legs...

All the kids are adorable. Juan and Paolo will be heartbreakers for sure. But Leo just melts my heart. What a toothy smile she has!

I don't think they use photoshop. The photo looks natural for me.

Thanks soooo much for all of the pictures! The Jordanians look great as always, it seems like Hussein's grown a lot.

The Spanish Royals, OMG they're too beautiful! I love the two Sofia's together, and Leonor with Juan is too, too sweet! I never realized how much Irene looks like Miguel. And Froilan, Victoria, and Pablo are just as great as ever! The Princes card was wonderful, too! Leonor is such a little dynamo, I love that toothy, mischievous grin of hers! Baby Sofia is going to look like her mama when she gets older, you can already tell it.

I also loved that the cards weren't photoshoped this year, they were real. You could sense it.

The Christmas cards are so beautiful!!! It's really great that the Kings chose a picture with all their grandchildren... Love to see them smiling! The recet gala is nice too. I think with the black belt, it looks much better. Her hair is really nice too..

I hope the Infantas would release their family Christmas cards too, but what about the case of Elena and Jaime then?

The F&L picture is lovely with their two pretty daughters. Great to see Sofia again, it has been a long time since the presentation at Atocha.
However, I agree with biboquinhas, I am missing a bit the relation to winter / Xmas since this is just a normal family picture, a lovely one though, and despite last years' controversy about the leg issue I preferred the atmosphere of last years' pic, Leonor in front of the chimney. But again, great to have a nice family pic anyway since this is the first one since Sofia's birth.
Looking forward to the Infantas' cards, I wonder if Jaime will be included on Elena's No matter if yes or no, it will lead to speculations either way. I always loved their cards, eg the one in the pool or last years' card, in the tree.

I believe that they should stop doing them, because ultimately for the only thing that they serve it is in order that certain press they amuse themselves criticizing them. What should be a nice image for Christmas, they turn into another element of business.

Duke, if it is with Christmas decoration is criticized because it is and if it is not, because it is not. Last year, besides the bilge of the leg, the problem was that there were no elements religiously or that these socks or dolls were not traditional in Spain (though the people in their house are in the habit of having them, more if there are children and the shops sell them). They need a topic that to speak and they look for any excuse to do it.

On the winter photo, to do a winter photo in Spain and in November beginning of December ... it is difficult enough. We are in Europa's south, have had a sunny enough autumn and up to this week it has not started being cold. They do not control the weather.

I am charmed with the autumns landscapes, and the mount of El Pardo must be spectacular in this epoch. It is not the first time that the Princes choose this fund for their Christmas card.

I don't see the problem of the christmas element which apparently is missing. The christmas colours, red and green, are defnintely present in the photograph, just look at the leaves and the think they're sitting on! IT's a bit difficult to create a snowy landscape, if there hasn't fallen any snow yet. But, you're right Lula, there are always going to be critisism, no matter what they do, so it's best to not listen.
Too bad Cristina and Inaki haven't released their's yet, I can't wait to see it! I'm also very curious what Elena will do this year. This is not going to be an easy christmas for the kids
