Since you started comparing, especially the kids of the nordic families take their children to age appropriate events or are seen with them in public to ease them into royal life and what goes with it.

For me the fact that Leonor's official picture on the website is from 2012 and shows a girl of 7 years who turns 12 this year says it all. Hopefully there will be new pictures next January when Felipe turns 50.
I do not think it is good if children or teenagers are used as advertising, as is done in Sweden or other royal houses .( yes for me its advertising) Each country has its own ways to lead the children into the public, some earlier some later. I'm looking forward to the shoot ..

In these photos you can see a child behind Felipe in the car, and does not look like one of the boys.

Leonor & Sofia's appearances in 2016

The same for the Dutch Royals, we usually can see the A-Team at winter shooting and summer shooting, and sometimes "private" events like wedding of family members. The only "young royal" we see more often now is P. Elisabeth of belgium she is also 15, later this year she turns 16.. Btw last year we had seen leonor and sofia 6 times, winter shooting, easter shooting, summer shooting, and another event in mallorca, nationald day, and visit to parliament same year.. ..
The ski trip was this year. They didn't have a winter photo shoot before. However, these were all the appearances/photos the girls made last year:
  1. Photos of them visiting grandpa Jesus's house
  2. Easter
  3. Leonor's communion
  4. Football (soccer) matches each attended with dad
  5. Summer vacation (2 occasions)
  6. Photos of them starting school
  7. National Day parade
  8. Opening of the parliament
  9. Christmas card

So far this year, they have made the following appearances/photos:
  1. Photos of them visiting grandpa Jesus's house
  2. Ski trip
  3. Easter
  4. Sofia's communion

In the end, it comes down to Easter, Summer and National Day (and only since F&L became Kings). The Easter & Summer photocalls always look stiff and uncomfortable with family all over the girls as protection.
January visit at Grandpa's house and school start show the girls hidden on the backseat of the car, it's not a photocall but paparazzi-style.
Skiing was the first time, the rest were cannot-avoid-events: both communions, opening of parliament (first time and an event that only happens every 4 years after an election)
Christmas card is only a photo taken during the year, sometimes only even a photo from one of the earlier shoots of the year.

The only variation was attending the football matches, perfect type of events for the girls. Hopefully more to come.

If we don't count photocalls (winter, Easter, summer vacations), paparassi shots, officially released photos (official birthday photos and Christmas cards), communions, how many photos/appearances kids in other royal families made?

I don't remember seeing any other royal kids sit through long speeches like the infantas sitting through in parliament without even an yawn between them. Danish adult royals couldn't even sit through those without nodding off.

I said it comes mainly down to 3 appearances, not sure how you are reading into my post that those don't count?

I am surprised the King, as a reigning monarch, is "allowed" to participate. In the UK, the Queen is not even allowed to drive a car for security reasons.

D. Felipe was once an olympic sailor. I am pretty sure he relishes taking part in events like that.

QE II is allowed to drive a car. There are plenty of pictures of her driving. W-A is piloting commercial flights. Pretty sure Felipe can sail.

King Juan Carlos has also regulary participated in it during his reign. . And i think King Harald also took part in Regattas.

felipe apparently took his nephews abord the somni yesterday, when they visited cabrera together. aboard the yatch, there were the urdangarin kids and froilan. the press is speculating as to this sudden closeness with the urdangarin kids as he does not maintain a relationship with cristina or inaki. queen sofia was also present aboard, so that may explain it, as she may have been the one who invited cristina's children.

letizia was apparently not yet on the island this weekend but will arrive soon as today is the traditional palma photoshoot with leonor and sofia.

If Felipe and the Urdangarin children and Felipe de Marichalar were all at Marivent and Sofia had to be the one to invite Cristina's children that doesn't really say anything good about Felipe as a man or the future head of the Borbon family, does it?

I think - and certainly hope - the truth is somewhat more boring - that Felipe does have an ongoing and good relationship with all his nieces and nephews. I've noticed the Spanish press tends to base their "facts" about the royal family only on what we all see in public. So, for example, for years it was a "fact" Cristina and her father had no relationship until we saw them greeting each other lovingly at the Infanta Alicia's funeral. Now its reported as "fact" that Juan Carlos is trying to reunite the family and its Felipe and Letizia who are the hold outs. And so on and so on...

This journalist always wants to create controversy.

Urdangarín children have gone to Palma every year, and last year they sailed in the Somni with all the family, including Letizia and her daughters. Although at first the press denied it, because in the first photos published by the agencies, they could not be seen.

This time the photos of the Spanish agencies do not show what you see in the photos of foreign agencies, that Leonor is sitting behind her father in the car.

Urdangarin children go with their grandmother Sofia when their parents allow it, the rest of cousins have their own plans. For example, this year Victoria Federica has not coincided with them, because according to one journalist she was in a camp.

The kids look cute. Sofia is so tall for her age! Not sure who Sofia looks like now - maybe a maternal relative, (although I don't find she looks much like Letizia herself). When she was little I thought Leonor resembled her grandmother Sofia but she's becoming more and more Borbon in her looks as she gets older.
