Leonor is really cute. She looks a lot like Letizia's father--same nose and face! I don't see any resemblance with Felipe--perhaps the eyes. Babies change so quickly who knows next time.

It's all been said before, but thank you so much for these beautiful pictures. All the children look abdolutely wonderful, the King and Queen have enough grandchildren ti open up their own creche, mashallah!

As for lLeonor, well words fail me, she is absolutely beautiful, mashallah. She looks a little stunned in the photos by the crowds of people but I particularly like this picture.
She looks delighted to see a face she recognises!

Please give whatever you can to the DEC's Pakistan Floods Appeal. Millions of lives are at risk

Sorry- I meant Infanta Elena children not smiling. Infanta Cristina children always seem to be having a good time and smile a lot but Froilin and Victoria always seems to be pouting or angry. I wonder why?

I love watching the Queen with her children and grandchildren, has she always been like that? I can't imagine Queen Elizabeth touching and laughing with her family like this. What a refreshing change from what I am used to seeing from royalty. They seem like a really close family and she seems like a normal grandmother.

Leonor's sooo cute! :) And I'd really like to squeeze her chubby cheeks especially when she smiles. She's so big for a 5 month old baby... (it's in the genes i guess....).

The whole family looks so good and I think they're all having a pretty good time.

Wonderful pictures!! Thank you everyone!!
The children of the SRF are all cute alone, and when you put them together...cuteness overload!!
I liked what Letizia and Cristina were wearing, but I did not care for what Sofia was wearing...the pattern on her jacket was a little too busy for my taste. Elena didn't look all that bad from what I can see of her.

Has anyone noticed that Cristina seems to dress Juan, Pablo and Miguel in matching clothes practically every time they are at an official engagement?

I just wished the boys wore longer trousers. I also wish that I & C would stop dressing their boys with the same clothes so they would have some individuality and would also look nicer in pictures.

Irene and Infanta Leonor are so cute. I guess we're gonna see more of them in a few months when they go back to Mallorca in the summer which means more pictures.

The boys are not wearing trousers. They are wearing shorts which for more formal occasions are longer than leisure shorts. To dress the children in the same outfits is very upper class. Look at portraits and photos of royal and aristocratic families - including some Pacific Heigths - and most likely the same way of dressing the children will be evident.

Thanks for all the photos. The Spanish Royal Family looked in fine form. Ladies and gentelmen alike looked elegant and refined without an outdated hat in sight (sorry, I am not a hat fan, and it makes me so happy they rarely wear hats!).

Is it just me, or is Infanta Leonor a very big baby?

El Mondo:

This has to be one of the best pictures of the family! Leonor was smiling. She's adorable. She seems to lose most of her baby hair. How soon will babies grow hair? Her eyes seem darker now. I wonder whether it's a dark blue like her father's or green like her mother's. I think her eyes start looking more like her mother's, with the deep folded eye-lids even though the shape of her face seems to look like her father. She's so chubby that she can be cherub in Ruben's painting.

Thanks for all these great pictures! These really make my day. Among all the women's outfit, I like Letizia's outfit the best and I like her new necklace. I don't like Elena's outfit at all.

This is another of my favorite. What a beautiful picture of mother and child:

I think Infanta Leonor looks more like her mom. She has her dad's head shape and hair line though.

Here's a link with baby/little girl pictures of Letizia.

i'll have to say it again--the SRF rocks!

Leonor has been dubbed by Hola as the protagonista and TVE has called her el centro del atencion, and it's so easy to see why! Irene isn't a very far second...they are most beautiful indeed!

IMO, their best features are their eyes.

Thanks for all the fabulous photos. Leonor is a cutie, so is Irene and her brothers, and Infanta Elena's kids! *melts from cuteness overload*

It was great to see photos of Juan Carlos hugging and kissing Irene/Pablo. We don't often to get such pics and you can see he really is very fond of his grandchildren.

Leonor, the queen of the family


DRAFT - 17/04/2006 BARCELONA
The assistance to the mass of Easter in the cathedral is already a traditional appointment in the stays of the royal family in Palm during the days of Holy Week. Yesterday, on Sunday of Resurrection, the family came to the complete one, included the small Leonor, whose few public appearances raise great expectation.

Ten minutes after midday, don Juan Carlos and dona Sofía came to the Majorcan cathedral in a vehicle led by the own Monarch, to which was following the car in which they were travelling don Felipe, dona Letizia and the infanta Leonor, to the one that her mother showed to the graphical reporters and to the numerous congregated public when they went down the car. Behind they came to the principal door of the cathedral the infanta Elena, Jaime de Marichalar and the children of both: FelipeJuan Froilán and Victoria Federica. In the last vehicle of the procession there were going the infanta Cristina, Iñaki Urdangarin and their four children: Juan Valentín, Pablo Nicolás, Miguel - the three with a showy green jersey apple - and the small Irene, in the arms of her mother.

The royal family posed during a few minutes for the numerous photographers and television cameras that were waiting for their arrival to the mass of Resurrection in the cathedral. In the shade of the door of the Almudaina of the Gothic Majorcan temple there were waiting the bishop, Jesus Murgui, and the members of the pertaining to a cathedral chapter, who greeted the Kings, the Princes and the dukes of Palm and Lugo. While, the hundreds of persons congregated around the cathedral were applauding and greeting to the royal family. The unanimous commentary was the great thing that there has grown the infanta Leonor and it calm that was.
Seguidamente, the royal family entered a crammed cathedral to follow the religious trade from the couches placed opposite to the major altar. Approximately an hour later, on having concluded the mass, there were going out for the principal door the members of the royal family, who were saying goodbye of the bishop and of the chapter while they were receiving vítores of the congregated persons.

The Majorcan 'baptism' of the Infanta Leonor

The heiress to the throne of Spain puts for the first time with the Royal Family the complete one in the door of the Cathedral of Palm

PALMA. - In only four minutes the photographers are capable of catching 235 photographies - five instantaneous ones per second-. " There is the too material one. Often it is bad to have so much because you do not know wherefrom choosing ". It was the case yesterday of the put official first one in Palm of the Infanta Leonor, heiress to the throne of Spain.

The Royal Family came to the complete one at 12.10 hours to the cathedral of Palm. The King Juan Carlos was leading a Volvo. In it also the Queen was travelling Sofia.

The following car, an Audi, it was handled by the Prince Felipe. Also he was accompanied By Letizia Ortiz, Princess of Asturias, and the authentic protagonist of the day, the Infanta Leonor de Borbón, in her baptism before the Majorcan society.

The infanta, of clear eyes, rubita and of rosy cheeks, put with a blue garment and a few socks roses. Letizia was dressing a clear suit and was smiling with mother's satisfaction. While, the Prince was supporting a white bib.
The Infanta Elena accompanied of Jaime de Marichalar, came together with their two children, Felipe Juan Froilán, who there looked at the camera in a tone half surprise or challenge and Victoria Federica, who was taking a long skirt.
The Infanta Cristina, beautiful and radiant, since always, dressed their three children (Juan Valentín, Pablo Nicolás and Miguel) with a green jersey with a navy blue trousers and she supported in arms her daughter, Irene Urdangarin de Borbón.

The public, a thousand, vibrated with the Royal Family. It was the case of 40-year-old Rosa Maria Sanchez, native of Alicante, of vacations in Palm, who waited for three quarters of hour in the door of the Seu. " They could have greeted a bit, but I am very satisfied. A lot of illusion has made me be able to see them personally ", stood out Sanchez to this diary.
Another tourist, 28-year-old Juan Mari Romero, native of Badajoz, went away to the cathedral because walking along the Maritime Walk realized the massive police presence. " I have found out about fluke ", admitted Romero.

Principal door

On having concluded the mass, which extended during 50 minutes and which was presided by the bishop of Majorca, Jesus Murgui and the dean of the cathedral of Palm, Juan Darder, the Royal Family went out again for the principal door and received warm vítores while its members were saying goodbye of the bishop and the chapter and were greeting the congregated persons.
The Kings of Spain moved to Palm last Holy Thursday to pass a few days during the Holy Week, epoch in which their presence is habitual in Majorca, in their residence of Marivent's Palace, to where they moved after the mass of Easter passed 13.15 hours for a familiar lunch.

The infanta Leonor leads the traditional mass of Easter in the Seu

Soon after the midday, the kings of Spain, accompanied by their children, sons-in-law and grandchildren, between them the infanta Leonor, came in diverse cars to the Seu palmesana to be present at the mass of Easter, tradition that they follow for a few years. This time, nevertheless, was special because the act possessed a personage to whom they they all had desire of seeing, the small Leonor, which was doing her fourth appearance publicly from her birth.
And we say that they all had desire of seeing her because, apart from the fact that the machines of the photographers maddened to nothing that the baby appeared in arms of her mother, it was possible to hear a ripple followed by a deafening ovation on the part of the public who was overstocking the surroundings of the Cathedral of Majorca. And it is that it was not for less. The first-born one of the princes of Asturias was there, for the first time in Palm. Since it could not be differently.

The King and his wife, dona Sofía, were the first ones in coming. They did it on board of a Volvo that the Monarch was leading. Later the princes of Asturias came with the small Leonor. The princess Letizia, who was carrying it in arms, showed it to the whole world. The presents could observe that the speck that the infanta has in the nose was almost so imperceptible that more than to see we had to imagine it. Though, really, more than it, they were called her eyes the attention, beautiful, big and blue, and, certainly, the gesture of surprise before so many people who was declaring her name from all parts.

While the smallest of the house - the children of the dukes of Palm, Juan Valentín, Pablo Nicolás and Miguel, were dressing with blue shorts and green jersey, whereas Froilán was shorts and jacket - they were lining up next to theirrespective parents for the session of photos, the Queen was caressing the small Leonor simultaneously that the King did not know where to place, for what he chose to hope that the others were located. And it is that is seen that the babies, and especially the smallest of all, have reduced protagonism to the Monarch.
To the photos they followed the regards. First they spoke with the bishop Jesus Murgui, who kissed Leonor, and later they greeted to the canons, which were aligned in Indian row. After little less than a triumphal entry in the temple - the small Irene, daughter of the dukes of Palm, was taken by the nurse to one of the cars, for what she was not present at mass-, where thousands of flashes left their stela after the tour that they did for the central corridor up to the first row of banks, the mass began.
Finished the mass, the Royal Family lived through a new bath of multitudes. In this occasion, the infanta Leonor went out in arms of her father, the prince of Asturias. Again they posed before the photographers. Again they greeted to the concurrence and, after saying goodbye of the canons, entered their respective cars after a new ovation of the public, who was continuing in foot without having left their places - more than anything for that one of which the one who goes to Seville loses the chair-, and returned to Marivent.
