Is there any historical basis for Infanta Leonor name?
In Spain, I can only think of a Queen of Castilla named Leonor (Eleanor), born Princess of England in the 12th century... But she was the daughter of the famous Eleanor of Aquitaine!:)
In other countries, Eleanor was quite often used for Princesses of Hapsburg.

Please, read this article, posted by the time she was born. It gives you an idea of all the historical basis for the name choice:

I like the name Leonor really much. I think it will be quite interesting what names Felipe and Letizia choose for Leonor's future siblings.

I bet they'll give a whole lot of that mousee to the royal family. I'm sure Leonor will love having something like this made in her honour when she's old enough. Unfortunately, I'm allergic and can't eat this sort of thing :(

However impatient we all may be to see again Infanta Leonor, there is no need to post the same question over and over. This leads to filling up the threads faster and contributes nothing. As it has been said for several times, we'll probably see Infanta Leonor, during the traditional celebrations of Easter, in Palma de Mallorca, and when her parents decide to present her to the virgin of Atocha. Any time she appears in public, be sure you'll find out about it.

I'm now going to delete all the posts insistintly asking "Where will we see her again?" or saying "I'm missing her so much!". If anyone has questions/comments about the warning, contact me via PM, as per guidelines.

The Royal Household recognizes a poem of a pupil of the college of the Gabrileistas

5 Abr/The Royal Household San Gabriel, Adrián Zayas Paéz has recognized the work presented by the pupil of sixth course of Primary Education of the College - seminar.
This recognition has its origin in a work of draft, of free topic, assigned to the pupils inside the subject of " Social Skills and Urbanity " that the educational Center gives to the pupils of fifthly and sixth of Primary Education.
The realized works stood out both for itsoriginality and for its beauty. One of them was shining specially. It was a question of a poem that the young pupil decided to compose on the occasion of S.A.R.'s birth the Infanta Dona Leonor. A composition that leaves many values see that the Spanish Royal Family is capable of transmitting the society in general and to our infancy especially.
The mentioned work was moved to SS.MM. the Kings of Spain and to SS.AA.RR the Princes of Asturias as testimony of the happiness that the pupils of this educational Center wanted to share for the happy birth. Later the text of the poem is reproduced.

For the Princess Leonor

A Princesa called Leonor
was born in a Palace full of wealths
and of brilliance.

All the kings of the world
met in her honor and many gifts
brought her with their better intention.
Mas, in these so notable days,
her parents answered a bit angry:
Thank you for your consideration!
But in these days the children without illusion
need them more than Leonor.

Then, be Magi and
take the illusion to the most
desolate countries, in order that the vacations
are glad to the poor children.
This way it is and this way it will be done.
The gifts for the world will remove.

All sovereign these distributed the planet in three sides.
The Kings of East left there his presents.
Those of the old continent distributed
his gifts to the most indigent children.
To the new continent the youngest Kings came,
where they left the rest of the presents.

And in these so difficult
times,
it is necessary to distribute
love, fondness and presents.

This Christmas story,
you Bunion reports it,
a child with a lot of luck, since he has
health, love and fondness.


-------------------------------------------------------

I have tried to translate the poem, hope that you understand it. The child who has written it must have 10 or 11 years.

Warning:

Please remember this thread is dedicated to news and pictures about Infanta Leonor de Borbón. When the time comes, Leonor's brothers and sisters will have their own forum. Till then, let's get back on topic.
I'm deleting now all the posts about possible names for future possible siblings.

If anyone has anything to say about this warning, please PM me, as per guidelines.

To have you Anna:o saying that it looks great made my day !

Time do flies when children are growing... and we tend to wish that they never grow up at the same time we wish that they do, so we can see them in the future . I was imagining the pictures of Ressurection Mass in 2026. Imagining the boys in their suits, the girls in their outfits and the older ones more serene and less worried about cameras - since no one will be focusing them !

Hum, great times to come my dear:).

Thank you!

Can you imagine? King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia at 85, having just celebrated their 60th anniversary as King and Queen,

Elena and Jaime with 63, still going strong despite everyone, Froilan at 28 (either married or a 'ladies man'), Victoria at 27, with very much success at her career.

Cristina at 61 and Iñaki at 58, still sharing loving looks like they were just teenagers, Juan at 27 - probably married - Pablo at 26, Miguel at 24 and Irene at 21, all of them strikingly beautiful.

Felipe at 58 and Letizia at 54, constitution changed so that Leonor at 20 is the legal inheritor after him, she and her four siblings are - as usual - the center of attention of the morning as well as their cousins...

Yes my dear, indeed, great times to come... (and I'll be 47 )

Continuing the seaworthy tradition of the Royal Family, is promoting a Ditch Infanta Leonor

Don Juan Carlos gives name to the ditch Cup of the King, who is disputed every year in waters of the bay of Palm, and his wife gives title to the Ditch Princess Sofia, a denomination that comes from those times in which still they were princes and already veraneaban in the island. Now Infanta Leonor is beginning to cover the Ditch.
As The Confidential Digital one has known in nautical sources, a group of promoters, taken root in Ibiza, is starting this Ditch Infanta Leonor. It will be a question of a sports nautical test of sail when inhabitant of the Balearic Islands disputes also in waters of the archipelago, with what the sea tradition of the Royal Family is continued.
Till now there has been a contest to design a sweet with the name of the daughter of the princes of Asturias, and to The Zarzuela other demands have come, like for example her name gave to a theatre. But this one would be the first ditch for the small one, which has just expired six months, and that has returned to be a protagonist, precisely in Palm, with her presence, for the first time, in the mass of Easter at which the whole Royal Family was present.
