Don't you think that Infanta leonor should appear more??For example Princess Mary even travel sometimes with her soon and we could see some photos of the Little Prince dress as a normal baby, having bath in a swimming pool!!She doesn't show him only in official dutties like Princess Letizia does!!!I think she should consider Infanta leonor as a normal baby, doing things like other normal babys!

Well, Infanta Leonor isn´t a normal baby

The Princes travel very much and have an intense activity and I do not believe that such a small baby could support these trips, they were getting tired too much and besides, the babies have to sleep, play, eat etc.
I believe that it is much better than this in house waiting to dad and mum

Yes your rigth, Infanta leonor is not a normal baby of course! But for example when I see photos of Christian Valdemar Henry John of Denmark, he looks like a normal baby, wearing jeans and a T.shirt and tennis shoes!That's what I'am refering, because when we get to see Leonor she is always so formal because we only get to see her in official ocassions, that's what I'am criticizing.

Oh I´m sorry ,I don´t understood what you wanted to say :(

Yes, you have reason, we see Leonor in only official acts , but I believe that you must not confuse, the "Formal thing" with "classic". The Princess Letizia has a very classic way of dressing and it influences his daughter.
But also we have seen to leonor in jeans .. in the vacations of Christmas in Lanzarote. We have seen her to accompany the Princess on the Dentist.

Here you have 11 pages of photos of Infanta Leonor wearing jeans.
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...05-a-8355.html

Actually, at that time, there was too many people criticising Princess Letizia for dressing the future Queen of Spain with jeans (there was even a TV show dedicated to it). It seems one can not please everybody...

Poor little Lonor who knows yet the light of the spots.

When she wore so cuty jeans in the last december, some people had mad a quarrel to her mother because she might not to wear a futur Queen of Spain like that ( even in this forum ) Then as we can see her only for official event she was wearing pretty beautifull baby girl dresses ( Easter or Miguel's birthday ) or specific and catholic ceremonies white long dresses ( Atocha, Visit of the Pope ) some people reproach to Letizia her classical and formal way to dress Leonor.

Wait and see, the hollydays are coming sooner, may be we could to see Leonor in bathing suit ( not a bikini because her futur duties....:p ) and I hope that every body will be happy....

i really don't see the problem in what babies wear. there's nothing protocolar, or something that can be judged as good or bad. i love seeing leonor in these kind of dresses that look so smart and girly, but at the same time i think she looked beautiful in jeans. after all, she is only a baby, and the fact that she goes to a royal event with her parents doesn't mean that she is performing one.

moreover, it's letizia's and felipe's baby, and they decide how to dress their daughter and furthermore, i think that's the last thing people look at when they see leonor or any other royal baby. the excitement comes now to see how they are growing and developing, and later on, it will be how they dress, and what tiaras they were or how elegant they look... :)

i don't think letizia received anything from karl lagerfeld or any other well known designer, since that would definitely appear in articles as the spanish press loves picking on these kind of things. letizia is not an often customer of international brands so...

Adelaide,

Don't you even dare to consider the possibility of putting a bikini on Leonor .

Honestly I love the way spanish family dress the little ones. And Leonor looks so princessly in her long white, pink and blue dresses. That's how I, representant of people, dressed my daughter on Leonor's age... God how I miss this days , now she's dressing by herself :o ahahahah

There is no reason to compare with Christian. Crown Princes of Denmark have a different attitude towards sharing intimate and family pics of their bundle of joy. Spain has a different tradition, we have never seen Felipe or his sisters on their early ages bathing in a swimmingpool or eating water melon and cookies. I'm sure those pictures exists in their private album. To see those kind of pictures we'll have to wait until one of these situations happens outdoors and hopefully several photographers will be there to take the pictures for us .

Once someone brought the same kind of "problem" towards princess Elizabeth of Belgium and brother habits on dressing. I believe the ways changes from country to country, from parent to parent, from baby to baby.

Now, adelaide, bikini is out of question ...

For as much we love comparissons, each with its own. This is the spanish way!

Regards,
mtbcm :)

I'm not judging the way Letizia dresses her daughter, but I only think she could go out more with her like Princess Mary does!I think Leonor has just came out a few times and only for official pictures!

Dearest mtbcm,

Thanks for your so polite answer.

I know a little the way of dress of quiet all the spain children when they are babies or little beautifull angels : so marvellously dressed with impeccable shirt, skirt, short, pant allways marvellously ironing ( the things not the babies:p) It's quiet a national sport to have a baby or little child absolutly well dressed.

Yes, the casual is begining to scrape the traditional image of the beautifull little girl in white dress with a a big bow in the hair as Victoria for the ceremonies. You can see the same little Victoria, when she don't go to school or when she don't assist at an official act, in a casual wear with sweatshirt ( I remember it was a Gap one ) and whithout this tremandous and typically spanish bow in the hair.

As I know the human nature and as I had a girl who wore varnish red shoes at the same age than Victoria, I can tell you dear mtbcm, that you know very well too, my daughter hate me because this varnish red shoes and because a scottish wool beret that I find very beautiful and she, NOT AT ALL Now she is the Queen of the Grunge..:p


( For Leonor in bikini I have to confess that I keep a llitle bit of hope....:p )

Kind regards

Felipe and Letizia appear to be more judiciously guarding their daughter's privacy. What's wrong with that?

I dont think it is a matter of being more judiciously, because i dont think it is a bad choice to decide to take their baby with them once in a while, i dont think they are giving too much of his privacy. Everybody would like to see Leonor more often like we have seen her cousins. The fact that Leonor is not around that much is probably because her parents are always busy doing things, not a matter of privacy but a matter of agenda.

well I think it is a bit difficult to keep privacy once you are a Princess, and keep her ate home is not the rigth thing to do! I think they should go out more often with her

They will leave with the girl, but they are not going to be calling to the press so that photographs to them. Although they are princes have right to their privacy, and mainly the girl, who is a baby.

Im sure it is difficult to handle their privacy, journalists and paparazzis are like flees, you find them even in the soup. When managing Leonor's public appearance, I imagine that it is quite difficult to know what is better and for explaining this comment, we can see that having her out of the public sight for a long time, it just bring more gossips and attention to her. Having too much of appearances which is not the case, it is just out of the question for a small baby. I think that they have noticed this as we have seen her more often in recent months. Every parent have their own style and even in the spanish royal houses each family of the kings' children have managed the privacy of their children in different ways. Probably Elena's is more equilibrated than her siblings.

The fact that we do not see the Infanta Leonor, it´s not want to say that she is every time in home. Evidently they do not have to pose with the girl everytime that thay are out of home.

The whole people have right to his privacy even The Royalty. It is a right

I don't see the fact of not having Leonor's photos day in day out it is a question of keeping her privacy or protecting her from paparazzi.

She is having a normal life an under one year old has, staying with professional people while mum and dad are out for work.

Only a person who didn't raise or saw children being raised could find weird not to see Leonor everyday with her parents. The Princes work and they don't take their daughter to work, as simple as that.

I am sure they take her for strolls, shopping and other things they do in their spare time. And we've seen that when they went shopping with her, someone tiped the press where they were. The other time they took Leonor to the dentist (well, this time was more Leonor who took mum ) the press could only take a bad photo - to our big despair - of her because I think it was only one photographer that happened to be there.

Gossips and bad comments will always be there and I hope the Princes don't change their family life and their raising plans of Leonor just to shut bad people mouths.

Leonor before an Infanta of Spain is a child who needs to have her own schedules, have sleep, have meals and have fun accordingly to what was planned to raise her. And the Infanta of Spain before Leonor has to be prepared accordingly to what is expected for and from her. And that can only happen if she is granted the privilege of being a baby who for now only goes, surrounded by press, where the Crown requests her to.:)

Regards,
mtbcm :)
