Both look cute and warm, right for the event. Love Athina's shoes.

Aiko is all grown up! She looks quite happy. I like her sweater in the second pic.

Gabriella's coat is beautiful but it seems a little formal for the rugby match, if I were dressing her I would have paired her in a similar duffel coat to Jacques or dressed them both in parkers and some trousers.

agree with your thoughts on the rugby outfits, she does look more dressed up than he does. Their hair looks so fabulous, great cuts and curls

Count me for third who thinks Gabrielle is a bit over dressed for rugby. Would have loved her in a similar coat and pants like her brother.

They both looked sweet on Good Friday

Not liking Sofia's dress at all for the church service, the color is too bright and dress is too casual/looks like an apron.

Maybe not feeling well today, as he was pictured crying, but perfectly dressed: James at the Easter church service at St Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle today, April 1:

Sofia's dress seems a little childish for her to me, and there's something about it that makes it seem like it's from an old family photo from the '70s.

Leonor's dress is nicer - the pattern is pretty.

Louise looks so grown up in high heels! Looks as if she had some help from her mother in the wardrobe department as I can imagine her outfit on Sophie herself.

Looking at the outfits Infantas Leonor and Sophia are wearing, it is hard they will be 12 and 13 this year. They both dress like they are 7 and 8 years old. Too childish to me. A little bit like lady Louise a few years ago. At least Louise is not wearing white tights and Mary janes any more.

The Lady Louise looks every bit a young lady and I love it. Edward and Sophie were very wise to dress her for her age even as she got taller and taller, she still had white tights and Maryjanes. Dressing her for her age instead of what she would have preferred as well as we fashionista, served a very important role as it designated her as what she was, a child.

When she turned thirteen she was allowed to dress like a young lady, fascinators, stockings, heels (small) and all. Sophie and Louise must have had a ball shopping for new clothes because she would definitely have needed them. But the wait was worth it. It let her be a child and it kept the media away.

Perhaps that notion too is what lies behind the way Letizia and Felipe dress their two girls.

ps: a note on Gabrielle's dress for the rugby. Every tried to persuade a three-year-old that she couldn't wear her fun new gumboots to bed?

So happy to see Louise looking that good... I so remember the traumatic time of her birth and the following days when I prayed for her and her mother.

Leonor and Sofia are only 12/13 and 11/12 respectively. Besides, unlike some girls who mature earlier, they still have a very child-like look and, I would dare say, even look younger than their age. Why do posters here keep insisting that they dress prematurely like adults ? I think they both looked lovely at the Easter mass today.

The infantas look impeccable as usual, I like their matching shoes. They are still children and dressed appropriately, I think Sofia’s dress does look very 70s and fun.
Lady Louise looks very nice. I do think, in her case, the white tights and Mary Janes were carried on too long. They could have nixed the tights after age ten for example and still dressed her age appropriately.

I have a great-niece the same age and if I'm honest I find the way she is allowed to dress more than a little shocking. She got her first heels at 11! Admittedly, she is tall but she is still a child and should be both dressed as a child and treated as one.

I do not understand the mindset of parents that allow their young daughters to dress well above their age. My niece said it was such fun for her and her daughter to play with makeup and shopping together was fun.

Thank heavens for parents such as the Wessex's and the King and Queen of Spain to dress the children as children and better still, allow them to be, and to be seen, for what they actually are, children!

They will be beauties when they get older. I believe you are right they do look younger than their age especially Leonor.

Sofía was born in 2007, she’s 10 and will be 11 in three weeks. Her height and poise may make her seem older but she’s still basically a little girl. I think both Leonor and Sofía looked lovely today.
