Earrings of Yaiza for Leonor



Yaiza trusts that Doña Leonor carries in her baptism the earrings of olivina, gold and brilliants that a White Beach craftsman has created for her. Also Cabildo and Teguise prepared presents for the real baby, who today leaves the island next to his parents.

The island has turned upside down with Princes de Asturias and, mainly, with his new born Leonor daughter. The City council of Yaiza, for example, gave to the family slopes in gold, brilliants and olivina created by a White Beach goldsmith.

The own mayor of Yaiza, Jose Francisco Kings, transferred to Doña Sofía this idea, during the celebration of the baptism of the son of Carlos Morales and Princess Alexia. Reina assured that the gift would be accepted willingly "and even there are possibilities that the young one carries the earrings in the baptism of next the 14 of January", pointed municipal sources. The six brilliants symbolize the six centuries of history of Yaiza and the olivina is the symbolic stone of the island.

We were all waiting for this competition for a long time: who’s the most generally accepted as the sweetest baby-monarch in Europe? After an InterNet enquette Infanta Leonor of Spain triumphed with 34% of the choices, before princess Alexia of the Netherlands, who nevertheless conquered a considerable percentage of 28%. On position number three of the rank, with 19 %, there’s the son of Mary and Frederik of Denmark.

What will the Three Wise Men have brought to Leonor? She is very young, and evidently she does not realize anything, but today is one of the more special of the year for all the children. It is sure that the Princes would be been charmed with of opening the first gifts of her daughter. It is a shame that there is an official act on January 6 is one day to be with the children and to play with them.

It seams to be a consensus in every Spanish publication. Also the readers of 20 Minutos have elected Infanta Leonor as the most famous personage of the year (with 66%), while the Princess of Asturias was considered, in the same online poll, as the most elegant woman (with 32% of the votes).

You said it, in every Spanish publication...I bet if the poll was taken in Denmark, the results would be different. I love Leonor, but I think these polls seem unfair to the other little ones...who are as cute as little Leonor...just a thought.

I agree...No offense to anyone, but I don't find Lilleprinsen very cute at all. I think the other royal babies of 2005 are a lot cuter. They also forgot about Leah Isadora.

Evidently Leonor is in all the summaries of the year 2005 in Spain, between the most famous prominent figures, the most out-standing news ... it is the normal thing, the illogical thing would be that was in the lists of other country. Like this week her baptism will be one of the more important news, and next Sunday her photography will occupy all the front pages of newspapers.

The Princes will bring the Infanta Leonor to Covadonga some weeks after the baptism

Don Felipe and dona Letizia want that the visit to the cradle of the Monarchy serves to press hard the links of the newborn child with the Principality
Oviedo, P. R. / R. S.

" Covadonga always is different ". The Princess Letizia Ortiz declared these words on January 30, 2004, during the first visit that she did to Covadonga's sanctuary together with the one that four months later would turn into her husband, the Prince Felipe. Two years after that stay, the Princes prepare a new visit to the basilica, which will have a very special meaning: they will come accompanied of their first daughter, the Infanta Leonor.

Don Felipe and dona Letizia want that Covadonga, origin of the Spanish Monarchy, is the principal point of reference of the first trip to Asturias of the girl, for the one that still does not exist definitive date, though the intention of the Princes is that it takes place some weeks after the baptism, which will be celebrated next Saturday in the Zarzuela. With this visit, the Princes try to press the links hard with the land of the future Princess of Asturias.
Don Felipe has realized six visits to the Sanctuary. In the first one, on November 1, 1977, the inheritor of the Wreath took possession of his title as Prince of Asturias in Covadonga - neither investiture nor proclamation, it was said then-, in an act at which the Kings were present, their children and the sisters of don Juan Carlos, accompanied of their husbands.
Don Felipe de Borbón returned to the basilica, accompanied of his parents, in September, 1980. In that occasion, the principal motive of the visit was the constitution of the Foundation Prince of Asturias, in Oviedo, but the first stop, after landing in the airport, it was the cave of the sanctuary, before the Santina.
He returned to Covadonga in 1988, to be present at the constitution of the Meeting of the Royal Patronage of the Cave and Covadonga's Site. The prime ministers accompanied him and of the General Meeting of the Principality, Pedro of Forest and Antonio Landeta.
In 1994, on the occasion of the delivery of the prize " Prince of Asturias " to the Exemplary Village to the shepherds of the Picos, don Felipe wanted to visit the virgin of Covadonga and during a few minutes, in loneliness, prayed before her.
On September 7, 2001 he was present at the celebration of the first centenary of the consecration of Covadonga's basilica, visiting the exhibition " Covadonga. Iconography of a devotion ". His sixth and for the present last visit to Covadonga was a January 30, 2004 together with dona Letizia and the paternal grandparents of this one, Jose Luis Ortiz, deceased one year ago, and Menchu Álvarez del Valle.

In The Zarzuela they believe that the infanta Leonor looks like especially don Juan Carlos, though with something of her mother

The infanta Leonor continues with all normality the process of upbringing in her house of The Zarzuela, where there is satisfaction for her evolution and they do not hide of commenting that the girl " is very pretty ".
There are also good sensations for the excellent images that took of the three, the princes and their daughter, when they travelled to Lanzarote this Christmas for a few days of rest, in that it was possible to estimate better the face and the eyes of the small one.
To the commentary of which - with exception of the trip to Canaries - the girl is not working out great to the street, it is answered that she has where to take the Sun and the air, in her own house.
In The Zarzuela they think that the infanta looks like especially her grandfather, the King, and of fact they have verified it with don Juan Carlos' old photographies when he had a few months of age. Simultaneously, they believe that the mouth of the girl belongs to her mother, of Letizia Ortiz.
