It probably is Alexandria as I would guess that she chooses most, if not all of the summer clothes herself.

Yes, I imagine that they are they those who were accompanying their mother.

I have noticed the much softer, funkier style of Queen Sofia as well. And I must say, I like it! Its like she is being cool and hip without trying to hard. You know what I mean..its like when you see pics of famous celebrities and they are like 50 dressing like a 20 year old! Not cool.

Everything is much looser and less-stuffier. During her royal duties I always find Sofia to be impeccable. And while I know it's summer and she's on holidays, I am very surprised to see untucked in shirts or simply more stylish pieces of clothing in her closet, such as those long flowing, almost hippie-like skirts which are very fashionable right now, at least here in North America, as are belts worn over your long shirts.

I've always noticed it about Letizia, how her personal style is very different and distinct from her work style, but it's also true of Sofia. I wonder if the funkier, hippie style Sofia dons in her offtime is closer to who she is in personality?
Sophia IMO has an inborn elegance, even in these informal outfits she looks great. what i like also is that she wears things that are in but at the same time age appropriate, the tunics, the belts, the flowy skirts, etc.... she is to me, and i always say it, one of the best dressed royals.

I have seen this photo, and I was not refusing to put it. It looks like to me a very tender and funny image. Victoria is really enchanted with her little cousin.

She probably thought Leonor was wearing socks. I know it's a bad joke, my bad.

Nice pictures y'all. So I guess if you're a royal it's okay to stay, live, and vacation at the National Patrimony's residences like with Princess Irene and the Jordanian princes but not with the political families and commoner friends of the children of the Kings.


I wonder where their respective spouses are. The King is probably hunting in Africa. Inaki seems to be lying low (wonder why). Where could Infanta Elena be?

I feel the same way as with the others. If one cannot do it, then none should, but life is not fair, is it? Hopefully, she pays rent!!!!!!

i'm sorry, but what do you mean exactly with your post? it's not like they're wasting taxpayers' money all the time. i hope you are not implying anything else...

*was going to say something else but will not do so yet until i understand the comment*

peace out!

It was in conjuction with Roxsteve's previous posts threads away that it's not okay for Letizia's family to spend some days in Mallorca because he/she said that the Royal Family does not own their residences, but the Spanish people and the press don't complain about Princess Irene or other royal guests (ie the Jordanian princes, Tatiana) to stay in the taxpayer-paid houses. My comment was actually supposed to be sarcastic.

Nah, it's probably a royal guest so that's okay.

oh, okay, thanks for clearing that up. i'm so sorry, because i actually didn't find the comment sarcastic, as you had originally intended it to be. anyways, i won't be making any comments on that now, but thanks again for saying that.

cheers!

It seems that Letizia is holding SOMETHING on her laps, maybe Leonor?

It is a shame on that already there could not put photos of Face to Face because there are any more photos and bigger.

In these photos one does not see all, there are several persons that I do not identify, some of them are fond of children and the rest not. They were:
Queen Sofía
Princes of Asturias
Dukes of Lugo and family
Dukes of Palm and family
Princess Alia and her twins daughters sure (I do not know others)
Rosario Nadal and someone of her children
