Heu... is there any royal family who does not say 'Hello!' to the assembled media patiently awaiting until they can make their so desired holiday pictures? What you particularly liked seems more than normal to me and has always been the case.

I meant that they went up and shook the press photographers hands and say good afternoon, whereas I don't recall the Danes doing that during their Graasten photoshoot nor have I ever seen the British royals go up to a group of photographers and shake their hand.

I agree Molly. I noticed that the King, Queen and their daughters were doing this last year as well. While I realize that other royals do greet the assembled photographers, this is one of the only times I've seen the children encouraged to do greet them by shaking hands prior to the photo shoot.

I remember in one instance a news clip Victoria forced Estelle to shake hands... E hesitated and Victoria abruptly jerked her hand forward. So I guess she will do it as a rule.

And I used to work with toddlers so I know what a jerk is before any says I am exaggerating:)

You're right, and I agree that it's a nice touch. I don't think the SRF did it before Felipe became King last year.

I feel the need here for a quote from Jane Austen (paraphrasing) regarding the ....propensity ... to willfully misunderstand.

I don't know how to put thhis, as I don't want it to sound offensive,but Letizia's touching approach (clingy?) to the girls makes me a little unconfortable: it makes me wanna scream "let them breath for once"...
to me it looks kind of obsessive and controlfreak-ish, being constantly all over the girls, but I guess when they become teenagers they don't appreciate being watched or touched all the time.

Exactly! Hope the girls will "rebel" at some time, when they enter the teens

I don't! The Spanish don't need anymore scandal from their Royal family. Rebellious princesses are fine for Hollywood but not real life :)

I agree. There is nothing wrong with a loving mother having physical contact with her own kids for goodness, putting a protective arm around them from time to time in front of a host of strangers with cameras etc. They all look very happy and normal to me and it makes a very refreshing change indeed to see such nice royal family photos.

Very well said. Letizia is just a hands-on mum – can't really see a problem in that.

If the girls had a problem with her tactile ways I am pretty sure they would let her know. I have no proof but a gut feeling they feel free to express themselves to their parents and speak their minds within reason.

OK, I know I'm crazy, but which is Leonor and which is Sofia? I'm not terribly familiar with them, but could usually tell. Now, their height isn't helping me! Who is in the print top and longer khaki shorts?

Spanish Royal Family Summer Holidays 2015

Leonor is in khaki shorts, and printed top, while Sofia is in solid white top, and navy shorts. I have a hard time telling them apart too, since they're practically the same height.

In my option that is a step too far. Both the royal family and the media are helped with some distance. The Diana Years were a lesson of how a close entanglement can lead to a deadly embrace.

The media are there to register the start of the holidays of the Spanish royal family. The King, the Queen and the Infantas shaking the hands of the folks who -at other media moments- will not hesistate to infringe their pivacy, is a step too far.

The oldest one is Doña Leonor, Princess of Asturias. That is the one with the khaki coloured pants.

Picture.
