Copyright Imagine Scandinavia/Korpa/C.F 20009, Madrid, Spanien. Pablo Nicolas celebates his birthday with his mother Princess Cristina and brother PRINCESS CRISTINA OF SPAIN GOES TO THE SCHOOL TO PICK HER CHILDREN UP ON THE BIRTH DAY OF HER SON PABLO NICOLAS. PRINCES CRISTINA IS A GREAT AND DEDICATED MOTHER THAT LIKES TO BE WITH HER SONS, SHE IS MOTHER OF THREE BOYS AND SHE DOES THE NORMAL LIFE OF MANY MOTHERS TRYING TO KEEP HER CHILDREN A REGULAR SCHEDULE.
I wrote it somewhere else, but I think that we are just not really used to seeing Cristina put so much effort into her looks as she did for the 25th anniversary events this past weekend. Usually the Infanta is very casual, as some of thse pictures show, with her hair in a ponytail and in jeans and what not. But at the 25th anniversary events she was made up very well and her hair was done much nicer and differently than usual.
And of course she is getting older, so no doubt that will show on her face. Probably more because she spends a lot of time outdoors with her sailing, and may not use sunblock or protection all the time.
I don't think she's had cosmetic surgery. Just a bad picture of her makes her look a bit older and more haggard than previously seen.
Cristina's sons are too cute! Espescially Juanito. Something about him makes me melt every time I see a picture of him, even though he looks like he has a very defiant and stubborn streak to him. And something about pictures of Pablo makes me think that he is the softy of all his brothers. There is a picture of Miguel from this past summer where Juanito is pushing him in his stroller, and little Miguel just seems to be glaring at the cameras.
i agree with you. i doubt any surgery, its simply not her style. i started this threat because i am a bit fet up with constant focus on letizia. christina and elena are the spine of the royal house, they are fulfilling their duties in silence and support the family 'business'.
I was thinking after I made my post, too, that with her stomach infection, the tension surrounding Felipe's relationship with Letizia while raising three young boys, maybe Cristina is getting a bit stressed and tired. That could be a good explanation for her tired looks at the 25th anniversary events.
S.A.R. la Infanta Doña Cristina pasa junto a la reproducción del navío "Nuestra Señora del Pilar" durante la visita que realizó a la exposición "España y América: un océano de negocios", que conmemora el V Centenario de la creación de la Casa de la Contratación de Sevilla, organismo que controlaba el tráfico y las relaciones comerciales entre el Viejo y el Nuevo Mundo. Doña Cristina presidió el acto y recorrió la muestra que, a través de sus más de trescientas piezas de colecciones privadas, archivos y museos nacionales, pasa revista a los casi tres siglos de vida de esta institución. La exposición estará abierta hasta el próximo 29 de febrero. (Real Alcázar. Sevilla, 11 de diciembre de 2003)
Su Alteza Real la Infanta Doña Cristina obsequia a una alumna en la entrega de juguetes celebrada en la Fundación Gotze, de la que es Presidenta de Honor. Doña Cristina compartió los villancicos y recorrió la exposición en la que se reflejan sus actividades, desde trabajos de jardinería y artesanía, a perchas, panderetas y tornillos realizados por encargos de empresas. Esta institución benéfica de carácter privado nació en 1982 por iniciativa de un grupo de padres de deficientes psíquicos y dispone de ayudas materiales de la Comunidad de Madrid, y personales de voluntarios particulares y de las asociaciones de la Universidad Francisco de Vitoria y de Hospitalidad de Nuestra Señora de Lourdes. En la actualidad, atiende a 130 personas con discapacidades psíquicas, de entre seis y más de cincuenta años, con deficiencias de profundas a leves.
