Just a quick reminder:
Please remember that posts like "I am so looking forward to see the cards!" or "I'd love to see some cards too" count as empty posts and are deleted.
So, let's be patient until the first christmas cards appear!
Thank you.

I was just thinking the same thing! I could've sworn that they came out earlier than this last year! But when I looked at the thread for the Spanish Christmas Cards from last year, I realized that they came out on December 14, so perhaps we can expect one around then.

I have a general question about royal Christmas cards. How do they decide on the list? How does one get on the list?

I like this photo! It is fun and light-hearted. It definitely highlights their sense humour.

i just saw the news in the newspapers! those are some lovely christmas cards from spain. the one by the king and queen could have been more elaborate though, although i understand their frustration after the one with zarzuela covered in snow and the one sofia phoshopped were critisized by the media and everyone. i guess they felt they couldn't go wrong with this one. the rest are lovely though.

thank you for the links, the children are darling. i have to say little leonor is the prettiest little girl, such a sweet lovely little face and those eyes! Irene is a real cutie too, i love the sweet pose with her arm around her brother, she's a charmer i bet she's got them all wrapped around her little finger.

Thank you for posting the cards, the children are beautiful. Leonor is so gorgeous, she is breathtaking!! Little Sofia has grown so much and I think looks like her mama.
I also love Juans signature, I am sure as not only the youngest child, but also the only girl that Irene has those boys wrapped really tight around her finger & her papa too.
I also liked the casualness of Elena cards, the kids look like they were having fun. Its nice to see them smile!
They all have such wonderful families!!

I like Charles and Camilla's card, it's nice to see the Royals showing a softer side of themselves for their card.

The Spanish cards are wonderful. I like that Felipe/Letizia and Elena have messages in English and Spanish, it seems more inclusive. The children adding their own signatures is a very nice touch.
