Despite of the religious character of the ceremony Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia had their hands full with their two daughters and had to divide efforts between themselves: Mummy was taking care of serene and very well behaved Infanta Sofia and Daddy was in charge of her spitfire* big sister Leonor. The second daughter of the Princes of Asturias was baptised on the sunny evening of 15th July, in the gardens of Zarzuela Palace in Madrid.

Prince Harry celebrated the 30th anniversary of children’s charity WellChild and presented medals to brave chronically ill youngsters at an award ceremony. Harry also made friends with some of the patients, in particular five-year-old Christopher Anderson, who has spina bifida and hydrocephalus. Prince Harry knelt down so he could speak to the little boy and joked about wanting to borrow his T-shirt printed with the WellChild name. He ended the chat by giving the youngster a "high-five". At the end of the presentation ceremony, all the winning youngsters gathered on stage to receive a special commemorative medal from Prince Harry.
