I don't think she is all over them she is making sure they are o.k. This is what I would expect her to do. The girls look fine and to me are getting used to the events that now are a part of their lives.

Families raise their children differently. Since the girls were small Letizia and Felipe have always touched their daughters a lot and the girls have grown with it and are surely very comfortable with it. It is nice to see Letizia take care of the girls in these situations which are totally new to them.

I loved how Leonor and Sofia attended as I wasn't expecting to see them this year, but I'm not sure why. How Leonor seemed to be getting in the spirit of the occasion was adorable. I didn't think she looked lost or anything like that, but I do think that Sofia seemed a little shy, although as she is younger, that's natural. But I've always thought that out of the two, Leonor is the more confident one.

Do we know if Leonor and Sofia attended the reception, or if they only attended the main celebrations outside the Royal Palace?

Yes, I agree. I think Letizia's gestures towards Leonor and Sofia are only natural. I see parents go much more OTT than Letizia with their children - I have seen a number of children Leonor's age and older sit on their parents laps, or their parents holding on tightly to them etc. It really irks me when parents baby older children, but I think what Letizia is doing is just fine.

Leonor likely understands that one day she'll be standing where her father is now and will be presiding over the National Day events. I can understand why she would have many questions for her parents.

Well Queen Sofia did set a precedent in Spain for not wearing hats in the later years of her husband's reign. TBH I've only seen her wear them at events outside of Spain ie: William and Catherine's wedding in 2011. It seems to me that Letizia is following her example.

Here is a short video of the event containing the moments in time when some of these pictures were taken. It is an excellent video to illustrate the oft-repeated point that with photos one can easily spin an oppossing narrative to what were the actual facts on the ground.


Letizia was in no way being controlling, nor were the girls controlled zombies. Infact, it would appear that this is the first time we have seen Leonor so animated, so into the event and doing her own thing (except during her sister's christening when she was a toddler).

No where do we see Letizia fussing over her girls in an abnormal way. Infact to do less would make her appear as an uncaring, stiff, cold mother. It is to be expected that for such a long event, there will be times where she touches them to draw their attention away from/towards somethings (as we see in this video). Just like Felipe touching Letizia to communicate a message.

Thanks for the video. Leonor really was in her element, I smiled when I saw how much into it she was and how many questions she had for mum and dad. It seems she enjoyed, and she better does, because hopefully she has many years ahead to attend this event, as Princess and then as Queen.
