Are there any pictures of King Juan Carlos with his granddaughter Leonor? If there are, could somebody post them?

I don't mean the formal christening-type pictures where he's standing behind the parents, I mean the Queen-Sofia-Holding-Baby kind of picture.

Even though I'm a Yank I do get it that royalty must be more formal and dignified than the peasantry, but I would think even a King is allowed to cuddle his granddaughter in public.

Spanish Royal Easter Vacations (2004-2006)

It would be quite boring for all the Queens to be alike and Queen Sophia is a very unique and lovely Queen and grandmother.
indeed queen elizabeth doesnt show much affection to her grandchildren publicly in the manner that sophia does but its clear when she is interacting with them that they have a great relationship with her and a great deal of respect, the same with prince phillip you can see that they joke around a lot. in any case sophia is much more open about showing emotions period as opposed to other royals who were brought up to not show emotions and have kept that up. i think juan carlos belongs in the latter cattegory but he also seems to be not a very hands on grandfather period, but it doesnt mean he doesnt love them as any grandfather would. Just my own opinion.

I think Juan Carlos is a good grandfather! If you look through previous threads you will see pictures of him playing with his older chandchildren. Just because we don't see pictures of him picking them up and hugging and kissing them doesn't mean he isn't a good grandparent. The same goes for Queen Elizabeth, although you don't see lots of affectionate pictures of her with her grandkids you can tell that they do love and respect her.

One of my grandfathers can't 'deal' with babies and small children. There are no photos of me with him when I was little but when I reached the age of 5/6 there were loads and now he's just the best! I've also seen it with him and my younger cousins. He won't hold a baby, he doesn't coo over them. He might sound cold to you, but it's just the way he is. Then as we get older the way he acts totally changes. Some people are like that.

Thank you so much for those uber cute pics sis!
I loved the ones where Miguel gave his Grandma a bouquet and she looks like she wanted to eat him by kisses!

The photos are beautiful. In some occasion also I have seen images of the Queen with Froilán and Victoria in some infantile spectacle. A shame is that we could not see more photos of her with Leonor, for the present time she sees her always in house, it will be necessary to wait that the girl grows.

Sofia is such a great grandmother, it's so nice to see that she's not afraid of being affectionate with her grandkids and children in public. Unlike some other Queen I can think of...

Completely in agreement with you, Queen Sofía is a grandmother, handsome and of very young aspect, that is very affectionate with its grandsons, but also I see in her continuous gestures, and mainly glances, who expose enamored qu is of their husband, King Juan Carlos. By the way, their grandsons do not call to him "abuela " but " amamá "
