The Infanta dona Cristina de Borbón will navigate as crew member 18 in the Challenge
Her Royal Highness the Infanta dona Cristina de Borbón will navigate this Tuesday as crew member 18 with the Spanish Challenge 2007, in the fifth day of the Act 12 of the Cup Louis Vuitton that is disputed in waters of Valencia.
Infanta Cristina, Duchess of Palm, it turned 41 years and it celebrated with its four children and their husband to it, Iñaki de Urdangarín.
The Infanta received many gifts, between that they emphasized the drawings dedicated to its day made by its children Juan, Pablo and Miguel. Cristina received the surprise when she went to look for small the school in company of his husband and his baby Irene.
I think Infanta Cristina has fostered one of the best paparazzi relationships among the royals. She seems to give them plenty of open opportunities to take pictures of her and her family, such as her kid's birthdays. She doesn't fight the photographers but works with them instead. I think both parties are pretty much satisfied. I don't think Cristina's life and family are too intruded upon and the photographers still get some decent shots of "private" life.
BTW, Irene is a little cutie. Hopefully when Irene and Leonor grow older, they'll be great friends. :)
