ONE YEAR SUPERPROTECTED BY MOTHER

NEXT 31st Leonor she expires her first year. Her health is perfect in opposition to the divulged slanders. Overcome the obsession for the speck, the parents have now a doubt: to what child-care will they take her in order that she is in touch with others small? Probably to that of the Royal Guard


In a few days, October 31, Leonor de Borbón will expire her first year of life. And, as affirms a member of the circle of the Princes, has had of her mother the best gift that she could do to her: the brother or sister who is in way.

Not only because the fact of living in Zarzuela surrounded with the Mount of El Pardo, does not facilitate the contact to the small one with other children. Especially because the enormous media expectation that has generated her short existence, has provoked in the Princess Letizia enough tension, specially in her first six months of life. " Letizia, who is mad with her daughter, as the Prince, is a too protective mother. Unlike Felipe, that knowing that the baby is nice, is more relaxed, she gives excessive importance to everything related to the girl ", it aims at the above mentioned source, which explains: " It is possible that the reason is the great pressure that the Princess has felt on having had to bring together her official role with her new facet of inexperienced mother. She knows that her daughter is also in the point of view. In an understandable zeal to protect her from the slanders that on her have been spilt, she has put a wall of silence, turning almost privately of State everything related to the girl ". Certain it is that on Dona Letizia they have circulated all kinds of dimes and diretes, as anorexia, abortions, binds of horns, or in vitro fertilization. That, far from stopping when Leonor was born, arrecieron, managing to steady that mother and daughter were at the edge of the death in the childbirth. Later, the artillery went to the girl, passing to speak of a rosary of supposed tares, being more insistent that she could be deaf and dumb.
Something that nothing has to see with the reality. Recently, the Prince Felipe, who takes in his portfolio photos of his daughter who proves to be proudly, was commenting: " she sleeps very well, she eats marvellously and she has had a cold ".

The words of the progenitor corroborate medical nearby sources consulted by CHRONICLE. " She is a calm girl, rarely she cries, not at least when one submits it to the punctual paediatric review, in which the majority of the babies start to cry. She has had throughout this year a height, a weight and a development according to the usual parameters. Also her nourishment has developed well, and in consequence it is neither baby nor fat nor thin. In short, she is a healthy girl ".

Something of what they have been witnesses the doctors who attend to the small one, habitually in a saloncito of the house of the Prince. The pediatrician of the Infanta is Fernando Mar, chief of the service of neonatalogy of the Clinical Ruber Internacional, where the girl was born, and also chief of the UCI of neonatos of the hospital Doce de Octubre. A prestigious professional that, as his companion reveals, is quarrelling to leave his cargo in this hospital, which one would allow him to dedicate full steals to the service of the Princes. Mar has been helped in Leonor's attention by Miguel Tapia, a military member of the medical equipment of Zarzuela, which exercises as family doctor of the Queen and the Princess Letizia. To know that her daughter was growing up well did not contribute that Letizia was relaxing completely. The test is that the Leonor's only stain, which was this angioma that went out for her in her nose to the month of her birth, brought of head. According to the medical mentioned sources, " it is a benign and very current speck, goes out for one of every seven babies. She doesn´t need neither surgical intervention, nor even treatment with laser, because in two or three years it disappears for if alone ".


Letizia gave an enormous importance not to the spot, but to what could be said on it. Especially when was published in a magazine of the heart that Leonor was going to be operated on, uncertain thing. " She was obsessed by the discretion, did not want that it was known at all ", they say. It looks like that in Zarzuela, to silence slanders, was valued to do a communique denying the news of the operation, but the Princess rejected it. The dread to which sobredimensionara this question contributed to that in her first months, Leonor was turning out to be photographed in few occasions. Neither anything, nor official has been known not semiofficially, of her short existence: how it is her room, who was taking care of it or where she was walking. The secretismo untied the rumors, which culminated with the false rumour of the deaf-muteness.

They were not easy moments those. Often, the doctors who visit the small one were gathered in their houses in cars of Zarzuela by the smoked crystals. Nobody, this way, could know if doctors were going to seeing the girl.

In vacations, taking advantage that in Majorca the Royal Family is more accessible, the strategy changed radically, turning the small Leonor into the summer queen. She monopolized many front pages( and the King placed as the most popular tenth personage in this country, above even of her grandfather.

Today the Infanta is giving her first steps. Letizia deals with her all the time that her official commitments make her free. Her relatives assure that " the girl is for her as a refuge that liberates him of all her tensions ". It is not strange that she takes her taken in arms. Often she her walks along the surroundings of her residence in Zarzuela, raises it to the palace in order that the Queen sees her and even, the ride to the administrative building, Magnolias, to show her to the personnel of the Royal Household.

CHILD-CARE IN PALACE?

Recently, in one of the offices, a civil servant gave a toy to the girl. When in jest, one wanted to take it, Leonor began to give stentorian shouts of protest. The civil servant exclaimed: " Caray with the shed! ".

She does not have contact too much with other children, except sporadically with her cousins, children of the Infantas Elenas and Cristina, with her cousin Carla, daughter of Erica Ortiz, and with children of friends of the Princes. Something that they think her parents solve, taking her the year that comes to a child-care. They shuffle the one that has the RoyalGuard near the palace, in El Pardo. It and the future brother or sister who will come in May are going to give one I overturn to Leonor's existence. Also to that of her mother. According to the mentioned member of her circle, " the better thing that could have happened to Letizia to relax with Leonor is the second pregnancy. Even without being princesses, the inexperienced ones always they fall down in the sin of superprotecting her children ".

There the translation is. Personally, it looks like to me a cruel article. It is curious, how the press, it dares to judge Letizia, and they are capable of realizing that they are the culprits of many, and to be judged to if same as human beings.

I am person, and if terrifies me to read the things that on Letizia and her health the press is capable of inventing; to think that they do the same thing on a baby from the moment of her birth terrifies me.

What mother does not want to protect her baby? Which is the feeling of a mother who sees how they invent all kinds of diseases to her baby? How there can think a mother who is going to be the future of her baby if with less than one year already they have wanted to damage her so much?
If I was Letizia, my desire would be of fleeing with my daughter and to remove it from everything in order that they were not damaging her.

Indeed that Letizia has to be a very strong person, because to bear every week, every month, a new rumor, a new critique ... and not to finish sinking or turning mad, you have to be very strong. Now the yellow programs were dedicating hours to speaking on this topic, and who knows the barbarities that they will say. And she in house feeling badly, waiting her second baby .. without being able to speak.

And the King hunting bears without nobody judges, do not even say anything...

THE LIFE OF THE INFANTA LEONOR IN PALACE
https://www.hola.com/casasreales/2006...enpalaciovida/

When the infanta Leonor expired her first eight months of life she was her mother, the Princess of Asturias, which during an official act celebrated in the General Academy of the Air in San Javier (Murcia) did one of the first familiar confidences telling that " the infanta Leonor sleeps very well and has not given us a bad night ".
Two months after discovering for the own dona Letizia that her first-born one was behaving herself as an angel when it was having to rest, he was don Juan Carlos the fact that, infected by the spirit of the children who had met him in the palace of the Zarzuela to celebrate the edition XXV of the contest " what is a King for you? ", he added some details more on the existence of his granddaughter telling some of the small ones that " Leonor is very nice: She eats, sleeps, grows... " The King, who as grandfather cannot avoid appear as such - to him also changes the face when they bring him over, they establish themselves in his arms or give him a kiss-, he stopped this day his look in the drawing that one of the small winning authors painted for him while Urdangarín was telling a story to his two granddaughters more pequeñas:Irene and to the infanta Leonor.

The lies

Unlike other Royal Houses where from the birth of the new inheritors one has been giving information about the life of the smallest of the house, the Princes of Asturias have avoided in the measurement of the possible thing to facilitate details or images on their life in family and have limited themselves to commenting on the strictly necessary thing on the development of the small one in some of their public appearances. An attitude that, according to sources near to the couple, was provoked to a great extent by the perverse rumors that have run on the Infanta and her supposed diseases and deficiencies. Quite lie. Since the time puts it (almost always) everything in its place and this one is a phrase in which also the Princes and the Princesses believe, don Felipe de Borbón and dona Letizia have gone really close and silently the weight of knowing what in the street was said of their small one. Commentaries that have hurt them terribly because, and the parents know alone this, nothing hurts any more in the world that the fact that one damages to a daughter.

Nevertheless, and assuming at all time their role as Inheritors to the throne of Spain, the Princes have not been left to win for the possible misadventures and have faced, shoulder with shoulder, to information (as we were indicating in previous lines) about the health of their small one - even of the own Princess for extremely thin this one was-; to certain private performances - the freezing of the cells of the embryo of the infanta Leonor in a hospital of THE USA - that had an enormous repercussion in the mass media; to the critiques and commentaries that arose immediately after the organization of dona Leonor's baptism in the palace of the Zarzuela. (An act of family character that did not stop being compared with the "official" that there received the children of other inheritors of Europa). As well as to the invention of news on the family of the Princess of Asturias that they try to damage, somehow, to come from this one.

Now, with pregnant dona Letizia of her second baby and being parents of a healthy infanta who drags an immense curiosity after her blue eyes, not only they have eliminated the news on " the evil " of the Infanta but the family seems to have gained something of peace and tranquility. Probably for it and when a few days in order that the Infanta celebrates with a great tart of chocolate her first year of life, he has been the Prince the one that has told that " Leonor already travels gathering of the hand, with help ". This way said it to a group of children of the Public College Salvador Vega Berros, of Sariego (Asturias, which he visited during his stay in the capital of the council, but also to some of the journalists invited to the receipt offered by the Kings in the Royal Palace of Madrid on the occasion of the celebration of the National Day.

A meeting in which don Felipe - the Princess of Asturias had asked the King for permission to be able to stay away before the continuous inconveniences that she suffers in this second pregnancy - said that his daughter not only " sleeps and eats of marvel, but she has had neither in all this time nor an alone cold ". A meeting in which the Prince commented also that they have not decided still to what child-care the infanta Leonor will go and that the small one has learned to say "dad" and "water", without forgetting to refer, certainly, to the brother or sister who is in way. A baby for the one that will prepare itself with all caress - as like there happened before the birth of the infanta Leonor - a room near that of the small one, that it is in the second floor of the residence of the Princes, closely together of the principal bedroom. A space, with big large windows to the gardens, which it was decorated in its moment by the infantile furniture that the Princes of Asturias entrusted in VTV, the same shop that dealt with the decoration of the rooms of the children of the infantas dona Elena and dona Cristina.

Don Felipe and dona Letizia agreed in not recovering old relics of family for very sentimental that could be for both and to furnish the room of the Infanta with a modern and happy, more identical touch to the new times. The Princes ended up by choosing for the small one a room similar to the one that dona Elena put in its moment initially to her daughter, Victoria Federica.
In the circle of the Duchess of Lugo, it was commented by certain grace, after the birth of dona Leonor, the Princes of Asturias entrusted in blue and beige the furniture and accessories for the room of the infanta Leonor. A possible explanation to this decision might be that dona Letizia and don Felipe, that they have bet from their official commitment for a large family, want to take advantage, independently of the sex of their future children, of the whole furniture that a newborn child needs and that, since all the parents know, it has expiry date and always it ends up by occupying space in the lumber room.

The same treatment and education In fact, Leonor, whose bedroom relies on all series of accessories that habitually they are in the rooms of a-year-old baby of age, sleeps, according to friends of the Princes of Asturias - the nest of white color that occupied for her first months of life her brother or sister will inherit it - in a cradle lacada of the same color. Though the Princes of Asturias count, since it is logical, with help - from the first day they contracted the services of a salus - the two practise as parents of the 21st century and deal personally with many of the needs with the small one. In fact, is very commented between the friends of the couple the circumstance of which, in any occasions, when they visit other houses with children, the Princess of Asturias not only does not take help but she proves to be absolutely happy dealing all the time of her daughter.

Leonor grows up well - an image costs more than thousand words and this summer the Infanta has been the queen of the instantaneous ones - and, though in her first year of life she has had to face to a " very complete agenda of commitments ", if she could speak surely she would say that it is very satisfied to be able to celebrate her first anniversary with a golden clasp: the arrival to palace of a brother and of a companion of games. A baby who, as she, will receive treatment of Royal Highness, as well as the same education during the first years of life.

To have lots of reporters around her calling for her attention would scare the little one and would somehow remove spontaneaousty from her.

I hope that it is true and give them on Monday. Wednesday is festive in Spain, and there are autonomic elections in Catalonia. So it is better than them give on Monday and Tuesday let's be able enjoy them, because if they give them on Tuesday, Wednesday we are not going to enjoy them.

Leonor will blow of a candle

The daughter of the princes of Asturias is on Tuesday one year and already she gives her first steps

On Tuesday there will be a small family party in the residence of the princes of Asturias in which the infanta Leonor will blow of her first candle. The day before, the House of the King will distribute to the mass media three photos of the girl on the occasion of her birthday. These portraits are those that they put of manifest that treats itself about the birthday of the heiress of the inheritor and that because of it the celebration has also an institutional facet.

But except these punctual exceptions, the first year of life of the first daughter of don Felipe and dona Letizia is alike in the daily thing that of any baby.

The information that the House of the King facilitates on the small one is scanty. " There is no much that to tell. She is starting speaking and already she gives her first steps ". The prince Felipe in his last acts has made concrete that his daughter stutters " dad and mom " and that the clearest word that she says is "a" "water"., the King, seems to her grandfather that she is called him something similar to "ababa".

Leonor in the last weeks beside climbing full speed for the corridors of the palace of the Zarzuela gives her first steps helped by her parents. " If they take her of the hands already she walks. It is clear that alone she will come untied rapidly ", tell friends of the Princes.

The upbringing of the infanta, the seventh grandson of the kings of Spain, and second in the line of succession to the throne, is normal. " She has given us not even an alone bad night and scarcely she hasn´t had a cold since she was born ", has made clear the proud father.

Even this way the health of the small one has been an object of all kinds of conjectures, " all the groundless ones ", as it is highlighted from the House of the King. " Of this girl it has been said of everything: that if she was deaf, that if she was sick. Barbarities ", says a speaker.

The queen Sofía, knowledgeable of the rumors, in some meetings of photos of this summer in Palma called by her name the small one, who rapidly turned the look towards her grandmother.

The small spot that has in the straight nostril also has been an object of different speculations. The official version is that it is a question of an angioma, something very normal in the babies, that it disappears for yes only.
The one who more has suffered silently all the infundios that have been said of the infanta Leonor in these her first 12 months of life has been the Princess.

Dona Letizia is a protective mother in end, which worries so much of the daily life of the small one as of what is said of her.

Leonor has a babysitter, but if the Princess is in house it is she who is busy with giving her with eating, with bathing her and with playing with her. Those who are employed at the palace of the Zarzuela tell that it is habitual to see dona Letizia pushing Leonor's car for the gardens or leading her in arms to visiting the Kings, whom she sees almost every day.

Dona Letizia also is accustomed to go with her daughter occasionally to the offices of palace in order that they all know the girl.

The Princes at the moment have not thought that Leonor goes to a child-care. " She is very littlt ", has said don Felpe. They have not also decided to what college she will go. But yes it seems that her formation will develop in a private college since it happened with the Prince, that he studied in the Rosales.

When Leonor begins to speak with fluency they will start teaching her English and, then, French. " Her formation will be the necessary one for the role that she has to recover. It will be probably a multidisciplinary education ", says a speaker of the House of the King. Also there is contemplated the possibility that Leonor receives military formation when she is 18 years old if it is the call of reigning. " But still much is absent ", are warned by them in palace.
At the moment, Leonor is charmed with the stories that her mother reads, pawned in that from small gets fond of the literature as her. Her first great change will come in spring when she stops being the only daughter.

Congratulations!

The Infanta Leonor expires this week her first year of life without the mysteries have cleared up themselves on the succession to the Wreath

Next Tuesday the first-born one of the Princes of Asturias will expire her first year of life; an event that she will celebrate, as any girl of her age, between the caresses and "carantoñas" of her family. Following the tradition, Leonor will have a tart prepared with the only candle that probably she will extinguish with the help of the others.

Behind there stay 365 days in which, without being conscious of it, she has turned the protagonist of any act at which she has been present and her image has filled of tenderness carried of newspapers and magazines. It has been one year in which the girl has not given a bad night, has not had the minor problem of health - not even " a cold ", Don Felipe remembered - and in that one has not seen her to cry publicly (they say that she does not do it privately either).

Probably some stew, which remained in it, the same day that appeared him before the Virgin of Atocha. It has not also gone to any more the small angioma that went out for her in the nose, a spot that, in most of the cases, is in the habit of disappearing alone in the first years of life.

On the verge of expiring one year, the Infanta has overcome already that stage in which she turned into the most rapid "gateadora" of the Kingdom and now all herefforts direct for to look for supports, as curtains or furniture, to get up. If there is something that calls the attention in this fair girl and of blue eyes it is her curiosity, her way of observing attentivly all that happens around it without surprising anybody, not even the flashes of the cameras. Also she is in this age in the one that tries to seize everything what she finds to her scope, already be the sunglasses of the Queen, the bracelets of the Princess or the hair of anyone of her seven cousins - six paternal ones and mother one-, that fit the pulls with laughs.

Like the Kings did with the Prince and the Infantas when they were small, Don Felipe and Dona Letizia try that Leonor grows in an as normal as possible environment, removed from privileges, and that plays with other children, since they are " her cousins and the children of friends ", the Prince explained.

But neither he nor his wife can prevent they from illuminating the face in all that there is mentioned the name of their daughter. A girl who, according to her father, " already walks of the hand " and which first word has been "neither " "dad" nor "mom", but "water".

Opposite to what many people could think, she is the own Princess who deals with her daughter during the day and the night, and the girl only stays to the care of the babysitters when Dona Letizia has to be present at some act out of the Palace. In order to pass the major possible time with Leonor, since she was born the small Dona Letizia has tried to avoid the long trips and to return to sleep to her residence of The Zarzuela when she has had to accompany the Prince in short displacements.

But apart from the family happiness that provoked Leonor's arrival the world, her birth supposed a fact of great institutional and dynastic transcendency for the parliamentary Monarchy. In fact, it was the first birth of an Infante or Infanta of Spain from was doing 37 years. Leonor is also the only one of seven grandsons of the Kings - the eighth one will be born in May - which godfathers are Don Juan Carlos and Dona Sofía. Though the King supported Felipe Juan Froilán, the major son of the Infanta Dona Elena, the Queen had not coupled till now any of her grandsons.

Since she came to the world, the second place has been assigned to Leonor in the line of succession to the Wreath, behind her father. An attribution that, while she was the only daughter, was not admitting doubts. Nevertheless, the birth of her brother or sister might change radically Leonor's destiny. If the baby for that Dona Letizia waits is another girl, the first-born one of the Princes she will continue occupying this second place. But what will happen if the Princes have, now or later on, a son? In the mind of all there is foreseen a constitutional reform in order which the first-born one, independently of that she is a male or girl, turns into the Inheritor of the Wreath. But the future is unpredictable. Though it does not seem to Leonor to matter for her.

If the Principes organize some party, it will be in the Zarzuela, and I do not believe that we see anything. It will be necessary to expect and to see if some information filters. But at the moment it seems that alone we will see some official photo of the girl and already.:ermm:

monica 10-29-2006 01:20 PM

I hope that if that go the Infants to the birthday on the following day is celebration and the cousins do not have school,but I am not sure that we see it will be private I imagine. :flowers: :ermm:

carlota 10-29-2006 01:36 PM

It seems to be that. In El País newspaper, they say that they are only 3 photos, it will be necessary to wait to tomorrow to see it. It seems that they will be only official photos, how those that were done the day that went out of the clinic or them of 30 Anniversary of the King in that he and the Prince were appearing. It comments on the press, tomorrow we will see.;)

so perhaps it will be one of leonor and parents, other with leonor, parents, the king and queen and other also including letizia's parents? mmm... i must say that although i love official photos, it would be so much nicer if they showed more 'everyday' photos, like the ones they released in denmark... and perhaps more quantity.

but, again, i won't complain. :smile: i'm sure they are lovely protocolar photos, like everything the spanish family does, to suit the role of the little infanta and her future position as monarch.

*SofiaM* 10-29-2006 01:50 PM

On the list of 'upcoming events' it says Leonor's birthday is 30th October :ermm:
Well anyway, I was really looking forward to seeing the photos of Leonor and now I've realised that because I'm going away for the week, I won't be able to:blink:

So I'll say it now: HaPpY bIrThDaY Leonor...FeLiCiDaDeS! :flowers:

It is very complicated, and I do not believe that they do it.:ermm:

They are very different circumstances. The Infanta Cristina is in the habit of doing it, she lives in Barcelona in a residential zone, they go out to a small park that exists next to her house, pose a few minutes for a little group of photographers who are there and it is ended. It is something a bit unexpected. The Infanta Elena does not do it, she lives in the center of Madrid, in a flat, and to do it in the center of Salamanca's neighborhood is more complicated enough.

If they do party they can distribute some photo, but in the Royal House the private ceremonies are deprived, and they are not in the habit of doing it. And I do not believe that they want to organize a great session of photos for the whole press that would be a great madness. It is Madrid, is The Zarzuela and many journalists been interested in the little Infanta.

INFANTA LEONOR, AÑO UNO (18)

In "20 minutos" there is a big gallery of photos of all this year with infanta Leonor.

To 18 days of being born, there was a book on her.

To a few months, she had a tart dedicated.

The expectation that surrounded the birth of the Infanta Leonor, on October 31, 2005, only is comparable to the commotion that her parents mounted on having publicized their commitment, two years before she was born.

https://www.20minutos.es/noticia/1672...or/cumple/ano/

Paty 10-30-2006 04:40 AM

"El Semanal Digital" , publishes today an article about the parallel lives of The Principes of Asturias and others royals couples.

On October 30, 2006. They married almost simultaneously, and almost simultaneously they remained pregnant women. Small princes and princesses gave to light heiresses, all of plebeian mothers. But this one is not the only parallelism that calls the attention.

The familiar planning of the royal European houses works in parallel and stripes the perfection. During the eighties and nineties it was the royal British house the one that it was nourishing to the pink press of news on royal births, as the children of the princes of Wales Carlos and Reveille: Guillermo in 1982, Enrique in 1984, and the children of the dukes of York, Andrew and Sarah Ferguson: Beatriz, in 1988 and Eugenia, in 1990. And also of royal weddings like that of the prince Eduardo and Sophie Rhys-Jones in 1999, besides the divorces of the princess Ana and of Carlos and Diana.

Nevertheless, with the new century the royal houses of Spain, Denmark, Norway and Holland are those that mark the guideline, with permission of the princes of Belgium, Philip and Matilde, that they distinguish more for their discretion and for their pregnancies - three - the wrong way from the others, that for their presence in the tabloides.

Leonor is sooooooo big, she has changed a lot, It's a pitty that they show her so little!!!! I really think they should't do that! To be Royal is to have some kind of interaction with their subdits!!! So this is the only picture we will see for her first year????

The 3 pictures all look wonderful. I'm glad that 2 of the 3 pictures are taken outdoor with such informal setting. The family look very gorgeous.. and little Leonor surely has grown up these past months.
There're 3 expressions of Leonor in these 3 pictures.. the laughing Leonor.. the smiling Leonor.. and the serious Leonor..
How wonderful!

I'm glad her parents are accompanying her, but i was hoping 1 of the 3 pictures would be just leonor alone.. perhaps walking or it's a bit premature.. but blowing her candles..

In order that the press could publish them tomorrow, and facilitate their work since Wednesday in Spain is holiday. ;)

Though I believe that this web has gone forward, the photo is not in any other site, so I have the impression of which they have broken some clause on the moment to publish the photos ... I would not be surprised for that.:wacko:

Couldn't you just stop comparing for a while and enjoy those pictures?

They are beautiful shots of a beautiful family. Give the comparison a rest for a while, please?

Avalon 10-30-2006 10:21 AM

The pictures are really adorable! Little Leonor has grown quite a little!
And yes, there is no point to compare Infanta Leonor with any other Royal kid. Each child is unique (and adorable :smile:) in her/his own special way.

mtbcm 10-30-2006 10:24 AM

Thank you so much for sharing the photos:flowers: .

She has grown so much and she looks beautiful as well as her parents who seem, understandably, very proud of her... But how could they not be?! To be blessed with an healthy child who looks so happy and cheerful.

Prince Felipe is wraped around her tiny finger... Also the Princess:wub: .

Why you have to compare them??? They are two differents babies.. Leonor is Leonor... she is not Irene, Christian, Alexia or another baby. She is Leonor.

they look very natural to me.
And by the way... I love this 3 photos :wub:

Leonor is SO adorable. I love the one of her in white, she looks so much older than one.

And is it just me, or is Felipe REALLY handsome in that outdoor one where they're all standing. I love that jacket he's wearing. Letizia is one lucky lady :) And I agree with mtbcm, Leo has her daddy wrapped around her finger :wub:

CRIS 10-30-2006 10:28 AM

Do you know?! I really must agree with you on that one. That is no way possible that Leonor has those gorgeous and smilling blue eyes... I wonder how they did it?!?!

And the happiness on Princes' eyes... no way that could be true!!!!!

But after seeing the photos I must admit I would like to see Christian with read shoes and dress or rose hair clip, so the comparissons could be made in same ground :ermm:.

Shame on you for making those absurd comparissons and always trying to bring the Princes of Asturias down. The day you understand that they aren't a sub-kind-of-Princes of Denmark you will have a major shock :sad:!

dazzling 10-30-2006 10:44 AM

she is such an adorable little girl, she has grown so much since the last time we've seen her.
The picture that was formal (taken inside) Leonor has a serioues look and the informal picture she has a laughing face, found that really cute.

Rebeca 10-30-2006 10:47 AM

I loved the pictures:wub: , they're so beautiful!
Leonor is so cute and she grew so much and so fast!... Felipe and Letizia are also great!:rolleyes:
Thank's fotr the pics!;)

biboquinhas 10-30-2006 11:05 AM

I really think that three pictures of little Leonor for her first birthday is too little! She is going to became one day (perhaps) Queen so all of the world is anxious to see her and has the rigth to see more often !!!That is the bad thing to became so famous! I think the photos are great and little Leonor is very beautiful, I'am not comparing her!!!!I'am just saying that they hide her too mucht!The photos are not natural.

dazzling 10-30-2006 11:09 AM
