Great news....!!!
I love that Paloma will be the Godmother!

Paloma will feel honored, that's for sure! More good news for her after what she has been through in the past months.
My guess was either Paloma or Telma but given Telma is working abroad all the time it's a good thing to chose Paloma. She can see Sofia whenever she wants and might play an active role in her life.
It must be an immense joy for Letizia's grandparents too. It's amazing three of them are still alive with Letizia already being in her mid-thirties. Being able to see great-grandchildren growing up is something very special.

A curious thing. The Prince Felipe is the godfather of Sofía, the daughter of Konstantin. A nice correspondence.:lol:

Great news and an absolutely great choise of godparents. I especialy love Paloma as godmother. :wub: Can't wait to see them

Little_star 06-19-2007 09:14 AM

Excellent, that's my sister's birthday!

It's nice to hear Paloma is godmother, I'm sure she must be overjoyed.

I cannot understand why the second child don't have the right to have the same baptism has their sisters and brothers! This will be a very private cerimony so we just are going to wait for one or two official photos IMO.

All the grandsons of the Kings, from Froilán to Leonor, have been baptized in a private ceremony in the Palace of the Zarzuela. Later the Royal House has distributed the video and the photos. It is going to be like the rest.

Will the press be present? I remember on Irene's baptism and especially on Leonor's there were plenty of pics and it seemed that TV and press was present. But this event will be in the evening - was it the same with the other baptisms? Can't really remember.

So we won't see any pics before late eve Sunday or even Monday? Can't imagine they will only publish two or three pictures as for example on Leonor's first birthday.

To this type of acts only it has access TVE and the Agency EFE, which are the television and the agency of public news in Spain. Later the Royal Household, it can allow the access to some journalists, of the most important mass media that cover habitually the whole official activity of the Royal Family. The images are publicized in all that it finishes the baptism. It will be like in Leonor's baptism.

Great news! It's sweet that Paloma is the Godmother.

Thanks Lula for explaining :flowers: Leonor's baptism produced tons of pics so looking forward to the event!

Aurora810 06-19-2007 12:14 PM

This is great news and I can hardly wait for pictures. I like the selection of godparents this time around.

crm2317 06-19-2007 12:39 PM

Thats great choice of godparents! Im going to be away for both Lillepigen's and Sofia's baptisms. Well at least I'll have something to look forward to when I come home:flowers:

dazzling 06-19-2007 01:11 PM

Finally a date released, maybe this will also be a small event just like leonors. Godparents are a good choice, letizia's mother must be very honored she was choosen. Looking forward to this event.

adelaide 06-19-2007 01:24 PM

Excellent choice, to tribute at Paloma Rocasolano being her the godmother seems to me so fantastic; Yes we can say it's absolutly normal that the Letizia's mother will be elected as a goodmother, but if it's totally adeccuate nothing obliged the Princes to do that. Actally, I was quiet sure that they do that.
For the goodfather, it's a very good idea to choose the Prince Constantin of Bulgaria, very closer friend of the Princes of Asturias.

very good choice, by personnal tate I should preferd a sooner date to see quickly the litttle Sofia, but now we know the date we can hopr with much tranquility.
