Thanks, Mapian!! :>)

Leonor is an adorable little girl.

Boy, in 50 years or so Europe is going to be great fun for monarchy buffs like us with Queen Ingrid Alexandra in Norway, Queen Victoria in Sweden, Queen Elisabeth in Belgium, Queen Catherine Amalia in Holland, and (possibly) Queen Leonor in Spain! I hope I live to be 100 and get to see all these little girls reigning!!

To clarify:

I certainly do wish all their parents the best, too, long lives and happy reigns, but it would be so special to be able to watch a coronation on TV (or whatever it will be in 2050!) and look back and remember the birth of the child being crowned.

It is really unbelievable how much leonor has changed in a month.from pop's visit till now her hair,face even her gestures changed a lot.
I was thinking she would have straight her like her mom,but what i see is that the color changed and her hair is like her dad.More changes to come.
It is obvious that she at ease with other people and really enjoys seeing other people.
thank you leonor,felipe,letizia and the kings for these natural and spontinous pics instead of posing for cameras.
thank you everyone for posting pics and articles,espcially lula,lucys and larzen(your pics are always the best),and our star LEONOR.
L's rock in this forum.
I am looking forward to seeing her in king arms.


I was surfing other forums and watching other baby princess and princes.
you know she is the best dressed royal baby.i really love the way princess dresses her.bravo mummy letizia.

I was thinking exactly that, too, aryo. It's amazing the maturity and changes in Leonor's face. She looks like a little person instead of just a baby. Her facial features seem older, even from the Pope's visit a few weeks ago.

She also seems to be much more engaged in her environment, looking around at the people calling her name and reacting to her mom, dad, grandmother and even waving (sort of).

Nothing about infanta Cristina:(

http://www.mallorcadiario.com/index....7502&Itemid=33
Acording to http://www.elconfidencial.com/gente/indice.asp?id=2698 Prince Felipe will not participate in this regata. This year is the 25th anniversary of this regata and there are some acts to celebrate it. So it is a bit rare that Prince Felipe and Infanta Cristina do not participate

That article is talking about LAST year. The expectation is that he will participate, although with his travel dates to and from South America I imagine it won't be every day.

As always, time will tell. It always does.

I believe today we won't see anyone on board. The first day is just to register the boats and prepare ting, before going into the see.

From La Vanguardia, a cute anecdote and photo. Letizia is walking in Palma with Leonor and a woman approaches her with her own daughter and tells her that her daughter and Leonor were born on the same day. as the women chatted, the girls started to play:

Leonor hace amiguitas en Mallorca
Laura Rotger Aguilera podrá contar de mayor que no sólo nació el 31 de octubre del 2005, el mismo día que la infanta Leonor, sino que incluso le prestó sus juguetes. Hace unos días Sandra, madre de Laura, se cruzó con doña Letizia en Palma y le explicó la coincidencia, Mientras, las niñas se pusieron a jugar.

The same page has an article about how Norway's King is in love with the spanish sun...but I didn't pay for it, so I don't know what it says...

Leonor, the queen of the summer
The real family to the plenary session will agree in Majorca the week of the 7 of August

“To Leonor Palm is seating him very well”. This one is the first declaration of the summer that Doña Letizia has made, the princess of Asturias, on its daughter, who is called to become the star of the vacations of the real family in Palma de Mallorca.

The House of the King does not give to concrete dates on the goings and comings of the Kings, its children and grandsons. “They are already so many that will be alternated”. But all will try to agree in the week of the 7 of August. In those days it is predicted that the official photo of the summer is made. “It is not easy to make agree to all”, recognize the people in charge of press of the palace of the Zarzuela.

When Marivent is to total yield also is it Are Vent, the residence that was qualified within the residential complex for the children of the Kings when they began to form his families. The seven grandsons of the King will pursue by their gardens and will swim in the swimming pool.
...
Officially the list of guests that will receive the real family during the summer vacations but, like every year is not confirmed, will be ample. The own Prince counted in an occasion that being young sometimes was called on to him to sleep in a mattress in one of the terraces of the palace.
