The Infanta Leonor already has her nougat in the Villa

Nougat Infanta Leonor Especial 2005. It is the name with which the cafeteria Vicente de Villaviciosa will commercialize the new creation artesana. It is a question of a nougat of marzipan, grapes, hazelnuts and pistachios, fruit of an original recipe of the teacher Juan Zafrilla. Vicente Alonso Naredo, holder of the establishment, he learned the formula in the Union of Pastrycooks and Craftsmen of Asturias. " It is done by the whole respect and the fondness that as Asturians we feel towards the Infanta Leonor ", he made clear. The kilo will be sold to 28 Euros. It is not the first nougat that Alonso elaborates inspiring by the royalty. In 2003, Letizia Ortiz jumped to the reputation over her Nougat.

Elisabeth, Amalia, Ingrid and Leonor are the names that will reign Europe. According to a survey made among the readers of hola.com, the most suitable name for a future queen is Leonor.

When Irene Urgandarin was born her parents already know who will be the godparents and told it (I mean Ińaki) press officialy just after the birth, so Felipe & Letizia probably are still thinking, thinking, thinking about it.

I imagine that they will say it when they should announce the date of the baptism, it will be necessary to wait. I imagine that they will be dependent on the acts that have in January to put the date of the baptism.

hopefully...
i guess the decision is more difficuly for Leonor, because she is daughter of future monarch, as opposed to Irene, 4th child of Infanta.
but, yeah, i hope they announce the date soon.

overall, i still much much prefer the spanish way dealing with birth.. lots of journalist (a treat for us...), many many visits from family, a press conference, a great 1st presentation, followed photos kith the Kings.

is it know whether Leonor is going to be presented to Atocha? around 3 months?
i was hoping we would see some official presentation at la zarzuela with photos of whole royal family, but i guess we've to wait until leonor's baptism.

I believe that they will announce it before Christmas, in Spain the baptisms are 1 or 2 months after the birth, the Royal Family is not in the habit of waiting any more time, and if they wait for many Leonor she will not enter the garment. In this case probably they have lengthened it a bit because the vacations of Christmas are.

The vacations of the Royal Family conclude on the 6th when the Military Easter is celebrated. It seems to me that in January they are going to be busy enough, especially the Prince. Besides, of the fixed acts how the Military Easter or the Receipt to the ambassadors, he Prince can have two trips, though it will be necessary to hope that they confirm them officially. When the President of Israel was in Spain, the Minister of Exteriors said that probably the Prince should travel in January to Israel. And on the 27th there is change of government in Honduras, and the Prince always comes to these acts (this year the Princes will travel enough because there are many elections in Latin America). So if these trips are confirmed, I believe that the baptism will be in the first 15 days of the month.

The first Christmas´ tree of Dona Leonor

An initiative that began with the aim to finance the trip of end of career of a few university students, today, more than forty years later, has become institutionalized as a solidary and environmental message that repeats itself every Christmas.
The particular campaign began on Friday with several students of sixth of the Engineers' School of Mounts of Madrid disguised as firs and they walking along the center of the city. Of such a way, and until December 8, these standard-bearers of the ecology and the environment distribute leaflets and they will explain to the population why and how to protect the biodiversity in order that this one, in turn, could take care of us.
Natural fir
One more year they will remember neighbors and paseantes the advantages of adorning a tree of natural Christmas and not of plastic. Of step, they advertise their traditional sale of firs in the School, a few trees that, to avoid the uncontrolled felling, sell with roots and handles to be replanted again on having concluded the holidays. They come from a production controlled of a fish-pond placed in Zegama, municipality bordering on Alava, and sell from 13 Euros in the own School. Besides, the pupils offer to transport the tree without any cost inside the municipal term.

By every sold tree an Euro is destined to solidary projects of Red Spanish Cross in the Carib. And it is that Cuba is the destiny of their trip of end of career, though also during the periplus they will realize a solidary action on having reserved between 2 and 3 kilos of the capacity of the suitcases to take elements of the first need to the island, in collaboration with the ONG PFC.
This year, on the occasion of the birth of the daughter of the Princes of Asturias, the pupils will give her first tree of Christmas to Dona Leonor. With this present they aspire to wake the interest up in the youngest generations for the Nature. An interest like that every Christmas leads them to adorning the Stadium Vicente Calderón and the Prado Museum with one of their firs.

The only difficulty I see here is choosing only two people (since they are a Catholic family - a male and a female). Otherwise, the role of a godparent is to provide the child (in addition to his/her parents) guidance in terms of being a good Catholic and in general, a good individual.

Just because Irene is the 4th child of an Infanta, it doesn't mean that whoever will be her godparents will be less important in the development of the baby's life than the godparents chosen for Leonor. The important criteria for a godparent is someone who possesses good character and strong moral values that he/she will be able to pass on to their godchild.

If you look at the godparents of Princess Elisabeth of Belgium (the future monarch), her godparents are her maternal aunt, Countess Helene d'Udekem d'Acoz, and her cousin, Prince Amadeo of Belgium. Hardly people that roam the royal courts of Europe. These are the godparents of a future monarch, as opposed to Konstantin-Alexios, the first son of Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, who had most of the future monarchs as his godparents, even though it is very likely that he will never be the king of Greece.
