^it would be cute but i think it will not happen. Leonor is the heir, so im sure they will provide a communion with just her, so that she gets the limelight.

the mediterrean people who are blonde as children, eventually become with brown hair as adults. this is generally speaking, of course there are exceptions, but our climate doesnt let a hair be that blonde for so long, on the other side the Nordic people are the opposite.
as for Leonor, she has light brown hair with blonde shades, she will eventually have a full brown hair, but she can always dye her hair blonde when she grows up. her aunt Cristina had dark blonde hair but she dyes it lighter.

It would but given the distance the Royal family have with the Palma's over the Duke's financial scandal it may not happen.

Ofcourse sadly none of this has anything to do with Leonor or Irene,maybe things might be different in 2 years time!

On a slightly different note, I'm sure Leonor's Communion will be very grand seeming as she is the future Queen.

^ i hope so, and i hope there will be a communion just for Leonor :) don't want Irene to outshines her (though its impossible, i always find Leonor the cuter one). not sure if will be grand considering Spain's financial trouble, hope things will be better before Leonor's communion!

I think Leonor´s Communion will be in around 2-3 years. I hope that Spain situation will be a little improved by then
Anyway, I hope her Communion will be a little more public than her cousins, since she´s a infanta and the heir.

I wonder which cathedral it will be at? I mean, will it be at the Chapel in the Royal Palace or one of the main cathedrals in Madrid?

Leonor's communion should take place in the spring of 2015, when she is nine years old. I believe that she will share this event with her classmates and it will be usual church for this event.

However, given the interest in Leonor and the interest in the event because the heiress of the crown will take part, there will be juggling between the privacy or the right to have their own important day of the other children and the public interest in Leonor taking part.

I don't think she'll invite her whole class, maybe just her closest friends and their parents.

I think Duke means that she´ll do her Communion at the same time as her classmates, wich is the most common thing in Spain.
If children go to a Catholic school, normally the school organizes the event with groups of the same class. The most usual thing, however, is that children prepare their communion with religion classes at the nearest church (we call it catequesis and I believe it start it two years before the event, around 6 years old), and then they have the Communion at the same church, with the children they have attended the classes with.

Ah, I see, Thanks for the info.

Could be just the Chapel at Zarzuela,not sure where Infantas Elena and Cristina made their First Holy Communions.

That's where I'm also thinking it might be held.

Its not my favourite 'venue' but it would offer the Royal Family more privacy.

Chapel of Zarzuela is a very logical place if the celebration is only for Leonor, just as they do the Christenings. I think that Miguel did theirs there, but I think that was because they were living in Washington already? Thta would make sense, since they couldn´t have had their preparation in Spain with other children.

Anybody have some information about Elena, Cristina and Felipe´s Communions? I think Leonor´s will be quite like Felipe´s.

I agree. They probably have lots of security at the Royal Palace- and that would make it harder for the paparazzi to get near the chapel. If Leonor has her Communion with her classmates, then it will give them more privacy as well, as some parents don't want their children to appear in pictures, videos, etc.

I'd prefer the Capilla Real de Madrid,but the Zarzuela chapel is probably more practical but much less grand.

I must see what I can find out about the Communions of Felipe,Elena and Cristina later!

I remember seeing a picture on Tumblr once of Cristina at her Communion, I'll see if I can find it for you later on.

I´ve done a quick search on Google, and I´ve found this site with info and some quite nice pics

Traductor de Google

It seems that E, C and F did their communions at Zarzuela.

Thanks for the pictures.

If Elena, Cristina and Felipe had their Communions at Zarzuela then I'm guessing now that Leonor will have her Communion at the Palace too.
