I think that her left leg not being shown shouldn't be a great issue as much the little infanta is shown again! She looks like a doll!!!

I believe that the children deserve a respect, and unfortunately, in certain Spain press to the children of the Royal Family respects enough little, because it is more interesting to do business.

The Princes have had to hear of everything that the girl had a very big spot and they had to to operate her, that was deaf and dumb... of Victoria they joke because always she takes a small sock in the hand... and I do not want to rememberwhat happened with Froilán (name used by the press, because for his family he is Felipe) and his kick in the wedding of the Princes, looks like that that one brought some that another problem to the child in the college, and sample of it is that now whenever he poses for the photos he is sad, when before he was a very nice boy.

The children are children, and this type of things cannot be done concerning them.
I agree that it is very hurtful and disrespectful by members of the yellow press to print things like Leonor is deaf and dumb or whatever tasteless things they come up with.
However, neither of the two articles posted said such things. They were just commenting of the oddity of Leonor's left leg missing and questioning whether the photos were photoshopped,that's all.

I wouldn't be surprised if they send a Christmas scenery next year like the Kings this year. No photo, no controversy, or maybe no photo, big controversy if it pertains the Asturias couple.

You do not say most of the Spaniards; but the Spaniards who have bad idea and that they like to criticize. And later they complain because they do not teach the girl: as they are going it to teach if by a simple photo they are dedicated to criticize. Totally ridiculous.

The postcard is precious and the girl is cute.

And those that complain are as always for creating debates and having something to criticize them.

Press without seriousness that normally follows any rumor and yellow programs of television that has to criticize something because but they do not have hearing. I have not read anything in the abc or elpais. Though I imagine that if they do not have another thing of what to speak, the topic will spread as the pest, which is what is in the habit of passing; though the majority of the people it does not concern for it very much.

This week there was a very nice anecdote that demonstrates how it actuates this press ... in a news on the doll Leonor in 20 minutos, it was said that it was weighing ¡¡¡¡¡14 kilos ¡¡¡¡¡ ... many articles of press and some program of television repeated the same news ... Evidently the doll was weighing slightly more than 2 kilos, but they gave the news badly without bothering to verify it.

CHRISTMAS IN THE PALACE OF THE ZARZUELA

The Christmas in The Zarzuela, the climate of the holidays in family, begins on December 20. The infanta Elena expires years this day and the celebration of this one is the perfect excuse to enter, in family, in the anteroom of the Christmas. Surrounded with all the adornments according to these dates, when they say goodbye this day, they know that they have soon an inexcusable appointment: Christmas Eve.

A party in which traditionally the King of Spain enters, across his Christmas message, the home of all his fellow-citizens. The Spanish remain dependent on the television and his words, which great they have to see with the hopes and the good desires. They are in the habit of accompanying them in this so special night, the princess Irene, sister of the queen Sofía, and the sisters and nephews of the King. They dinner in the dining room of palace a menu elaborated on the basis of the traditional recipes of these dates: soup of golden almonds, turkey, bream, partridges escabechadas or lombard accompanying to the lamb. Of dessert, dry figs, dates, cakes and, especially, the "turron".

Santa Claus and the grandsons of the Kings

A dinner that, surely, in the last years will have hastened. It is not of surprising. No delicacy can replace the face of illusion of a child while they develops a gift. The grandsons of our Kings begin to enjoy already the mystery of the arrival of this great man of white beard that Noel answers, in our country, to the Santa's name, alter ego of the Greek Saint Nicholas (boss of the sailors).

Without Christmas carols

... And assurance is also that not only there enjoy the Christmas the children of both Infantas... And that for the Queen educated in Greece, in a country where the Christmas holidays take a connotation of sadness as a sorrow that there gives a Child who comes to suffer to the land, has come the moment to have a good time fullly of these dates seeing her grandchildren to run for the gardens of palace. To the wait of a night of big surprises. Of made gifts fondly and without ostentation. One night, in which the best thing is wished though, it yes, they do not sing Christmas carols. The King came to Spain being a teenager and in the memory of the Queen they remain only the anthems or Calandras of the Christmas liturgies that were interpreting in orthodox Greek churches.

I'm afraid by your words because if we beleive you there is graet problem of public health in Spain and the spagnards have to wear more glasses because if you are watching at this pic during two seconds you can see than the little girl is standing very correctly WITH A SHADOW ON THE LEFT PART ACCORDING WITH THE DIRECTION OF THE LIGHT!!!!

But be careful because Leonor is baby in KIT and as the Princes don't have any place to put her during the night, all days long they are unscrewing her to put her in a drawer and the day of the shots they had to forget to rescrew her... You can understand when you are very busy you can forget little details!!!! What a life for the poor Leonor....


But please,please, there is a very great difference between the be critic for anything, anywhere and at any moment and to have a normal critic minded which allow to analyse a gossip article and understand the stupidity of a such article!

If it's not the case, the spagnards are in a very difficult prospect in which they are totally unable to detect the true from the wrong....

After the incident of 2005, much people have dedicated themselves to scrutinize the Christmas card of 2006 and have realised that Infanta Leonor lacks her left leg, on the picture.

"Let's have some common sense", says the Royal House, a little tired of this kind of controversies. "The Infanta, as the little girl she is, has little stability, as she's still learning to walk, so she put the foot as that and it accidentally was hidden on the photo, but that does not mean it is not there. I can assure you that it is an original photo, that it has not been manipulated and, if you wish to, ask a photographer, to see what he says about it".

As a matter of fact, several professionals consulted by us have showed that it is almost impossible to be photoshoped picture and they also realise that the left foot clearly rests on the carpet, with the corresponding shades.
"Besides - a spokesman of the Royal House insists - why would one cut the foot? What's the aim? The girl is the girl, and she is at home. There's no need to do a photoshoped card.

i agree. what's the point of cropping one's leg? that's ridiculous! why would someone cropped the leg especially if the picture will be released to the media? i think the other leg clearly rests on the carpet. it's just that it's not visible because of the dress...

i never doubted that the photo was a real one. i didn't even pay attention at the foot that is missing. i however think, just as the article of la voz de galicia says in their last paragraph, that they must have taken tons of photos to choose this one: why not choosing a photo where you could see both feet and with the infanta smiling? it would have ended up with all the rumours and gossips.

Carlota, the girl is 14 months old ... I do not believe that with this age could from her demand that she poses as a model for hours . If they were entertaining the Prince Christian with a story and were giving him chocolate in the session of photos with his father and his grandmother ... I do not want to imagine the one that they will have done in Zarzuela to be able to do a photo to Leonor alone. That is to say, what is done in all the families when one tries to do a photo to a baby.

Probably they chose the nicest photo, which more they liked. I do not believe that they could do many photos to her, she is a very little girl, who will move very much, she will get bored, will get tired... Often, the press is a bit absurd, and in this case they do not realize of that they are speaking about a baby who has not even idea of what is doing.

Probably because they didn't scrutinize and analyze every pixel of the photograph to figure out how to prevent potential sources of rumor and gossip. Picking a photo of your daughter for a Christmas card should be a fun and nice thing to do instead of wondering how your choice could be turned into a circus by some. I understand that they are the Princes of Asturias but how I wish this terrific couple and Leonor could be given some space to breathe.

I love the new photo of the infantita - she looks like such a happy, sweet and utterly adorable toddler. Yet so regal at the same time.

Sometimes the Festive Season is not called the "Silly Season" for nothing. This is another silly issue. Who cares whether you can see one or both of Lenore's legs. She is beautiful all the same.
