LaChicaMadrilena 07-07-2006 07:41 AM

If the Pope would go to Madrid, the "problem" wouldn't exist, the kids would surely attend his act, like it was in case of John Paul II visit few years ago. Now it will be more difficult, since they will probably have to bring all nannies to Valencia:D

Exact, to travel with seven children to Valencia is not easy, because of it I am not very sure that they all go. If they travel the babysitters are going to have a lot of work, for the children it is slightly boring, they are very long acts and it will be very hot.;)

mtbcm 07-07-2006 08:11 AM

And this act is not only about posing with the Pope. It is much more. Usually His Holliness spends some time with the King and then with entire Royal Family in audience listening and advising them. I remember Juan U. Borbón was already bored when the picture was taken in Pope Johanes Paulus II visit.

But I would love to see the babies as, specially due to the subject around this visit - family life - I am sure the Pope would be very pleased to see how extent Spanish Royal Family has become in last years.

I became emotional in knowing that His Holliness will stop next to Jesus Metro Station to pray for the victims and their relatives.

If there was a place in Spain that deserved to receive Pope's visit and consolation now, it is Valencia.

My guess is that only big ;) boys and Victoria will go. I'm almost seeing the two Juans with serious gesture being the most well-behaved princes ever... The two little princesses will stay home eventually.

Regards,
mtbcm :)

The Pope will pray on the station injured in his visit to Valencia.

Yes, this article also says they will await the Pope at the metro station where the Pope specifically wanted to go. It also says that it has NOT been confirmed that all the children will be present, and specifically mentions it not being confirmed that the Infanta Leonor will be present.

It will be necessary to wait to this evening to know it;) ; I hope that we could see all the children, and that do not go some and others are absent. Leonor's appearances create many expectation between the press and soon they enter the nerves.:confused:
