Biboquinhas, the Princes go to shops, to restaurants, to the cinema, to friends' houses ... and it is strange the occasion in which the press obtains these images. The same thing happens with the girls. For discretion and for safety, they support their private life privately. And only casually, or when the Royal House decides to warn them the photographers can obtain some image more.

In this aspect, the Princes do a life similar to the one that does any family in Madrid that does not live in the downtown.

IMO Sofia has the same eyes, the same mouth and the same face shape as Letizia. She looks by fare more Ortiz than Borbon to me too!
Unfortunately she is not smiling as much as Leonor in the Christmas card, but I know it is not that easy to make a little child smile when you want!

Never! She has nothing of Bourbons. Infanta Elena's children who have.

I think Sofia is very similar to Infanta Cristina when she was a child.

Leonor as queen

I am not sure if this has been already discussed. What do you think which ordinal will Leonor assume? No queen of Castile or Aragon has been named Leonor (Eleanor), but there has been a queen of Navarre named Leonor. Is it possible for her to be known as Leonor II? It would've been much easier if they named her Isabel (Isabel III) or Juana (Juana II)...

Also, what title is her husband going to have? Husbands of Spanish queens traditionally became iure uxoris monarchs (not just consorts). Will he be titled king or something lesser (such as Count of Barcelona)?

Well, I actually don´t know which will be her ordinal, but I believe that it will be Leonor I, because there hasn´t still been a "Leonor I of Spain"

There hasn't been Isabella I of Spain either, yet there has been Isabella II of Spain (much like Elizabeth I of England and Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom). Other Spanish examples include Ferdinand VI - first monarch of the united Spain named Ferdinand - and Alfonso XII - first monarch of the united Spain named Alfonso.

Spanish monarchs certainly take ordinals from Castilian monarchs and perhaps they would take ordinals from Aragonese monarchs if the opportunity arises, but I am not sure about taking ordinals from monarchs of small kingdoms such as Navarre. I'd personally prefer Leonor II, because it would represent the unity of Spain and equality between the regions.

Still, what about the future husband? King of Spain or something lesser (like Count of Barcelona)?

I think you can find the answers re: the future husband's title (should Leonor have no brother and become queen) at the previous pages of this thread.

So, it is already settled that her husband will be HRH The Prince of Spain? Too bad. I hoped thay would stick to their tradition and make him king (though I hoped king consort, not iure uxoris king). Spain had a king consort even in the 19th century, so the practice is not outdated.

According to the Royal Decree about the Titles from 1987 an husband of a reigning Queen will be Prince. But that doesn't mean that it could not be changed later when the situation actually happens and a husband becomes King-Consort like in the past.

These little Infantas are so beautiful! I think they resemble both parents. I see a bit of Letizia in their faces.

I think they have more of Letizia's features than Felipe.
