The first royal baptism in Lanzarote

The Church of Yaiza's Remedies, receives today at 12.00 hours the baptism of the minor son of the Princess Alexia of Greece and the architect lanzaroteño Carlos Morales. The Queen Sofia, the infantas Elenas and Cristina with her husbunds and the royal Greek family will come to the ceremony of character deprived by the orthodox rite.
Lanzarote is the house of the family Morales for years. The island has in Alexia of Greece and Carlos Morales to the better ambassadors and now also hosts, since part of the royal Spanish family is, from last night, in the residence of The Mareta to be present today at the baptism of the small Carlos, the third son of the link and the first boy.

The ceremony, which will be realized by the orthodox rite, will be attended by the Queen Dona Sofía and her daughters, the infantas Elenas and Cristina, accompanied by her husbands. They all stayed yesterday in the residence of The Mareta and they will remain in Lanzarote until Sunday, with the exception of Dona Sofía, who will return to Madrid after the food that will offer in Port Calero. The Queen will divide at 16.00 hours.

Since it is a tradition, the baby will be ungido with waters of the Jordan, in a baptismal sink contributed by the royal Greek family. Constantino of Greece and Ana Maria also will be present at the baptism. Margarita of Denmark is discarded to the Queen, sister of Ana Maria. Yes the brothers of Alexia will be, Phillipos, Teodora, Nicolás and Pablo, with his wife, Marie-Chamntal Miller, in the island from the last Tuesday.

THE SEVENTH GRANDSON OF CONSTANTINO

Carlos Morales son, born last July 30, is the seventh grandson of the Kings of Greece, Constantino (brother of Dona Sofía) and Ana Maria. The baby is related by several European monarchies, since his grandmother Ana Maria is a sister of the Queen Margarita of Denmark. The mother saga occupies the interest of the specializing press.
The members of both families are in the habit of travelling often

FREQUENT VISITS OF PRIVATE CHARACTER

This one is not the first time that the royal Spanish family travels to Lanzarote in private visit. The monarches accompanied of the whole family Borbón, already happened a few days of rest in the royal residence of The Mareta of Coast Teguise after the death of don Juan, father of the King, in 1993
Again the family chose the island in the Christmas of 1999. It was in The Mareta where there died Dona Mercedes, mother of Don Juan Carlos, on January 2.

But the royal visits of private character have happened since the lanzaroteño Carlos Morales was marrying with Alexia of Greece. The known friendship of the princess with her cousin the infanta Cristina, propitiated numerous meetings of both couples in Lanzarote. Also the Kings of Greece, Constantino and Ana Maria, have visited their daughter in numerous occasions. Normally they lodge at the domicile of the Morales, though also they have occupied rustic villas. Now, the family meets again for the royal baptism.
