There was an official photoshoot after Sofia's christening.

Of course there were photographers at Sofias christening. But unlike at Leonors christening (and first birthday), casareal did not publish their own "official" pictures on their website, with family and authorities, because Sofia is less important to the crown.

Sofias pictures were done by agency photographers, distributed by EFE.

La infanta Leonor prepara su cumpleaños - Noticias Familia Real - Familia Real - Diez Minutos

seems there are no pictures on the occasion of the fifth birthday.
unlike most other royal houses that publish pictures of their offspring on a regular basis, the spanish are overrestricted, only showing the girls in public on carefully chosen events a few times per year, not even publishing official pictures on special events like today.

while i agree that children need special protection from the media, leonor will be queen one day, therefore people are interested, and she will have to deal with the full force of the media from the day her grandfather dies or from her 18th birthday the latest. so far she is used to nothing, living in a cocoon far from reality.

I used to think Leonor looked like her father but now I'm thinking she's looking more and more like her mother.

but how is a carefully orchestrated photoshoot in a place of their own choosing, along with a photographer of their own choosing supposed to help her out of her 'cocoon'? she might actually come to expect that all media interactions will be this non-confrontational. no, i think a chaotic photoshoot on a rare ocassion might be better if we really want her to understand her role in the media better...

Am I the only one who thought the picture of Leonor at 18 looked strange & creepy. I guess when you watch someone grow up vs. instant adult, it wouldn't look weird, but IMHO, it looks strange. Maybe it is seeing Leti face & hair with Leo beautiful eyes. I guess it just wasnt what I was expecting. LOL

Infanta Leonor is such a beautiful child. I'm sure that she will always be lovely. It's too bad both she and Prince Christian are in line for their own thrones because it would be SO cute if they went together.

I agree. Is it just me, or did the graphics people do a really poor job. There's an alien quality about that face. They didn't get the proportions right. Her forehead and eyes are unnaturally bigger than the rest of her features.

I'm disapointed to not publish new pics for Leonor birthday, I searched in the net and didnt find pics neither. Neither here, why r they hiding the Infantitas from the people who love them? The photoshoped pic when Leonor will be 18 looks weird to me, they keep Letizia's face and change the eyes with blue eyes and that's it. I believe Leonor has her own beauty that will shine very much at that age.

The dude who did that "Leonor at 18" pic should be fired. It looks like he just tweaked Letizia's photo to make it look like an older Leonor. S/He forgot that Leonor has two sets of genes--one from mom and one from dad.

Leonor at 18 didn´t frighten me so much. I think she looks more and more like her Mum. She is a beautiful child, but I have a soft spot for Sofia. She looks a lot like Infanta Cristina when she was a child.

I agree completely Carminha Stalker. Sofia looks a lot like Infanta Cristina, as does Princess Alexia's youngest.

He certainly did not catch her beauty even at this young age. She is so animated and her eyes just sparkle. It is not well done. We need to keep a copy of this picture to check back in 13 years and see if it is any match at all. I do not think it will be.
