Great pics!

I'm assuming that little Carlos was baptized in the Greek Orthodox faith (just from looking at the pics and seeing the garments that the priests are wearing)? Another question....did Carlos (the father) join the Orthodox faith or did he stay his original faith (which I'm assuming is Catholic, but I could be wrong).

Nothing's ever been said about Carlos Snr converting, so I guess he remained Catholic.

Baby Carlos was baptised in a Roman Catholic ceremony in a Roman Catholic church, there was an Orthodox priest there as well. Look carefully at the pictures and you'll see the Orthodox priest arriving, dressed in black. Then at the door of the church you can see the Catholic priest wearing gold coloured vestments.

The small blue and white ribbons the guests wore also had something to do with Greece.

The baby was baptized by the orthodox rite, the same Alexia explained the ceremony to the journalists after the baptism. Carlos has had 6 godfathers, and as the catholic rite only two are had. The church is catholic, but the parson will have given them permission to celebrate there the ceremony, since I do not believe that in Lanzarote there is an orthodox church, there must be very few ones in Spain.

Yes, she attended the baptism and then left for New York. She looked wonderful at the baptism as well as in NYC.

Wonderful family photos in greek Life&Style magazine!

Maybe somebody can transfer the photos from Alex B´s. Miller Sisters Message board or directly from greek version of Life&Style magazine.
The magazine has some wonderful new photos of Alexia and her little family and also a new group photo of the whole greek royal family. I think the photos were made in connection with the baptism.

Beautiful pictures! I love how the whole family gets togther for events. Not a lot of royal families do that- there's usually a few people absent. Princess Alexia and her family look wonderful, and I think PA has what we Americans call "Farah hair" meaning the 70's look of a certain celeb icon. :)

My god the next generation of the family is going to be gorgeous (they are already), look at the Borbon kids (Felipe, Elena & Cristina's kids) and Pavlos & Alexia's children are beautiful as well :)

Two things: the Spanish Royal Women looked superb (as usual) and don't you think that Prince Nikolaos looks a little bit like Chris Noth (the american actor who played the role of Mr Big on Sex and the City)...
