Spanish Christmas Cards - All Years
 
1 Attachment(s)
This year the photographer has not taken pains... what has it passed with the CHRISTMAS SPIRIT? Good-bye to the lit chimney, good-bye to the tender image of the real grandparents with their grandsons, good-bye to the flowers of red Easter, good-bye to the family stay of The Operetta... Now, due to that air of " modernity " that hopelessly all it impregnates it, what do we have?
Because a card with airs of vacations summery in the middle of August... dresses all in plan have just come from the beach... with a tan suspect that I don't believe of skiing that it is... They have not been bothered neither in coinciding one day to be made the picture together all. For sure the Palm has sent the five pictures for e-mail to the photographer so that the hits in the card.

Let us analyze one for a those pictures hit on imaginary funds:

1) Jaime and the Infanta Elena, seemed that they have photographed them while they attended a race of seated bulls behind the barrier of the I sew taurine.

2) Froilán neither he looks for the camera and to Victoria it reflects him the sun in the hair. Those pictures insurance was taken in Mallorca last summer.

3) the King to notice the bottom and the sovereign's image stumped on him well... I don't know, it seems that they have hit the picture on the bottom and it has not been him convincing. Go tie orange... it dazzles me...

4) the Queen... it is evident that with that attire it was not winter when they have photographed her.

5) the Infanta Cristina is the best in all the adults. The poor Iñaki (it is a to say, because to pay 6 million Eurus is not in fact not to have funds, jeje) it seemed that it has tripped with the photographic objective and it has gone out with face of having hallucinated.

6) Juan, Pablo and Miguel so summer are to eat up them. It is incredible how much Pablo resembles his grandfather, the King.

7) the Asturias has an unbearable bottom. And Letizia has come out horrible in the picture. she looks that it is pretty the woman... because it is not very favored with that shirt orange and that poses.

I wait that next year they are bothered in meeting and they are left of so much " modernity "... That pictures (s) Christmas so desapoinment at the same time that original.

Ah!!! it is the picture of web page of Their Majesty's House with the one that the Real Family the Christmas 2004 congratulates. There won't be another. They have it there setting.

isabella_ 12-21-2004 07:10 PM

Wow! Very original card!
But meac is right: this year the card is a bit disapoinment because there isn't Christmas spirit in it!
Well, it doesn't look like a Christmas card, but I love the pics.
I think that most of them are never seen pics, right?. Especially Infanta Cristina and family ones: it seems like they've been taken by themselves.

micas 12-21-2004 07:53 PM

Ok, i saw thw card in a magazine but i don't belive...that is the royal card for Christmas???In did very original, but...they don't have time for a foto or they just don't won take one. At list isch one can take a special foto and do the same thing...now if you look well that is paparazzi pics...sincerally i don't like. Oh, and i belive Letizia deserve have a better card for start at list her and Filipe can do one just for them.

OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I am soooooooooooooooooooooo disapointed ................. !

I second you on that Micas. I think that this card is poorly done, it's like someone just threw the pictures there and that's it.

If they wanted just random pictures, I think I could have done better......rather disappointing.

I agree with you Anna and Micas; the card is poorly done.

It reminds me of someone's idea of fan art rather than an official Christmas card from the royal family.

And poorly done at that! Martine and Josefine would have done something much more spectacular!

Elsa M. 12-22-2004 01:05 PM

Yes, the idea of a genealogic tree is preety original, but the selected photos are a very disappointing choice...

It seems the Spanish Royal Family rarely has a chance to get all together. I'm always repeating this, but, 7 months after the wedding, the official website has not a decent family photo... The one they have comes from the last century... and they don't seem to be worried about that, because if they were, they would have replaced this:

I certainly agree with you Elsa M. and with the rest of the members about the christmas card the royal family has released for this year.

For me, it didn't even equal to the elegance of the members of the Spanish Royal Family when clothing and etc. For me, there is nothing wrong if the card would be simple but it should also look good. The pictures were just like cutted out in circle form then pasted. I would have prefered the seal of the Royal Family with poinsettias as borders. That would have looked better. =)

And with regards to their website, I think when compared to other royal websites, it should be updated or it should have a new look. They should put new official portraits of the members of the family. And they should also have a calendar just like of the DRF so that we should also be updated of their whereabouts of the days to come. Nothing is wrong if they want simplicity on some things but it should also look good.

It does look lovely indeed but what whas JC thinking? Oh dear, he could have shown a little smile at least. He looks kind of excluded and grumpy behind that bench and not like a proud grandfather who is the patriarch of the family, sitting next to the Queen (who is beaming!).

When I think of Christmas cards I think of a lovely photo in the snow, in a beautiful winter scenario, under the fire place!!!!! These christmas cards looked like they were taking in the summer time and don't have anything to do with the lovely Christmas season! I love the one that Prince Filipe and Princess Letizia make last year with Leonor near the fire place and under a Christmas sock! That was really a Christmas card!!These are only family shoots!

OMG thank you so much!!!! The princes card is just wonderful. Leonor's smile is just so :wub: and Sofia is so beautiful!!! Such a sweet and lovely picture

RhapsodyBrat 12-14-2007 03:08 PM

i think the SRF finally got it right this time! the pics are absolutely gorgeous. as for the Kings' photo, there were probably too many people coaching them to pose, to smile, that it seemed nobody was really paying attention to where the camera really is. :lol:

super two-thumbs up to the Princes' family too! i just love seeing Sofi--that round little chubby baby just makes me giggle and want to cuddle her. and i can see that Leo's hair is getting darker now (and i think she has her mother's eyebrows too).

i can't wait to see the cards for the Infantas. i can't wait to see Irene; she's so big now and she's changed so much too.

I don't think they use photoshop. The photo looks natural for me.

Thanks soooo much for all of the pictures! The Jordanians look great as always, it seems like Hussein's grown a lot.

The Spanish Royals, OMG they're too beautiful! I love the two Sofia's together, and Leonor with Juan is too, too sweet! I never realized how much Irene looks like Miguel. And Froilan, Victoria, and Pablo are just as great as ever! The Princes card was wonderful, too! Leonor is such a little dynamo, I love that toothy, mischievous grin of hers!:wub: Baby Sofia is going to look like her mama when she gets older, you can already tell it.

I also loved that the cards weren't photoshoped this year, they were real. You could sense it.

acdc1 12-14-2007 05:05 PM

I LOOOOOVE these pictures! THey're so great! Are the Dukes of Palm/Lugo going to come out with any?

The cards are great! Do the Infantas release their respective cards yet?

Duke of Marmalade 12-15-2007 07:14 AM

The F&L picture is lovely with their two pretty daughters. Great to see Sofia again, it has been a long time since the presentation at Atocha.
However, I agree with biboquinhas, I am missing a bit the relation to winter / Xmas since this is just a normal family picture, a lovely one though, and despite last years' controversy about the leg issue I preferred the atmosphere of last years' pic, Leonor in front of the chimney. But again, great to have a nice family pic anyway since this is the first one since Sofia's birth.
Looking forward to the Infantas' cards, I wonder if Jaime will be included on Elena's :neutral: No matter if yes or no, it will lead to speculations either way. I always loved their cards, eg the one in the pool or last years' card, in the tree.

lula 12-15-2007 07:41 AM

I believe that they should stop doing them, because ultimately for the only thing that they serve it is in order that certain press they amuse themselves criticizing them. What should be a nice image for Christmas, they turn into another element of business.:bang:

Duke, if it is with Christmas decoration is criticized because it is and if it is not, because it is not. Last year, besides the bilge of the leg, the problem was that there were no elements religiously or that these socks or dolls were not traditional in Spain (though the people in their house are in the habit of having them, more if there are children and the shops sell them). They need a topic that to speak and they look for any excuse to do it.

On the winter photo, to do a winter photo in Spain and in November beginning of December ... it is difficult enough. We are in Europa's south, have had a sunny enough autumn and up to this week it has not started being cold. They do not control the weather.;)

I am charmed with the autumns landscapes, and the mount of El Pardo must be spectacular in this epoch. It is not the first time that the Princes choose this fund for their Christmas card.

princess leonor 12-15-2007 07:57 AM

I don't see the problem of the christmas element which apparently is missing. The christmas colours, red and green, are defnintely present in the photograph, just look at the leaves and the think they're sitting on! IT's a bit difficult to create a snowy landscape, if there hasn't fallen any snow yet. But, you're right Lula, there are always going to be critisism, no matter what they do, so it's best to not listen.
Too bad Cristina and Inaki haven't released their's yet, I can't wait to see it! I'm also very curious what Elena will do this year. This is not going to be an easy christmas for the kids

lula 12-15-2007 08:12 AM

In my opinion the Royal House has met bound to advance the photo because others had filtered it already. Normally the photos were appearing in the web just before Christmas, and always after the 20th. But these cards are sent to many people and always there are people that takes advantage that go forward to obtain the exclusive.

Last year only the card of the Kings was considered to be institutional and placed in the web, this year they have decided that the card of the Princes also should have this character. So I believe that if those of the Infantas are not already, it is that are considered to be private cards and until someone receives them and publishes them, they will not appear. But it is sure that next week we will see them.;)

julianne 12-15-2007 08:47 AM

What a lovely christmas card, love it, the two infantas are so adorable.

Now the card is being criticized because the background is not a winter scene. The SRF should just send a card with a Christmas/winter scene instead of a photograph then there won't be complaints about inappropriate backdrop.

maybe not I went to mango a few days ago to buy the same Top letizia was wearing in the Bruce springsteen concert and they had it in the store so maybe Zara has Leonor's outfit, no ones knows that was Leonor's outfit!!;)

What an unkind thing to say. Sofia is just a baby, all babies are innocent and beautiful in their own way.
The Christmas pictures are wonderful. It's nice to see the King and Queen surrounded by so many healthy, happy grandchildren. :flowers:

If we can refrain from discussing the attractiveness of babies - who really cannot help what they look like - in a discussion about Christmas cards, it would be nice.

I understand lula, you cannot please everyone and a winter landscape in Spain is a bit of a difficulty :flowers: I actually liked last years' card very much because of the atmosphere, but that's only my personal opinion. This years' card is a wonderful family picture and much appreciated since it's only the second one of the complete Asturias family being published.

It looked to me as if they are going to be like Letizia's eyes, which I think are dark green or hazel. Of course, she's still only a baby, so her eyes might change. Leonor has light blue or blue-gray, I can't quite tell, eyes.

catango 12-15-2007 10:43 PM

Yes, Maybe, but I took the christmas Pic and I zoomed in too many times and looking a very close up, They seem blue or kind of gray, I don't really know what color they are.

Very funny, but I agree. It's not very becoming of a prince, and not really very attractive even for an average man. I almost expect to see some gold chains to complete the look.

Nice picture, but shouldn't a Christmas card have a Christmas theme? This picture makes me think of Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving maybe, but not Christmas. I've seen other Christmas pictures from the Spanish Royal Family that have Christmas type settings.

I love the way Felipe and Leonor are holding hands. So cute!

Wonderful Pictures, both of them point out how important family is the SRF. I love the way Leo and Felipe are holding hands, she has always seemed like a daddy's girl.
The SRF has the cutest children, Europe better watch out, these kids are gorgeous!!

I love both pictures! ABC already posted the Christmas cards from Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina. I am sorry that I do not know how to post them! To everyone Feliz Navidad y Prospero 2008!

Thank you Paty!

Cute pics of the kids - and a clever solution to publish a pic of the kids only, at least in Elena's case!

carlota 12-17-2007 08:32 AM

the pics are adorable! my favourite this year is perhaps the princes of asturias one (or the king and queen!), but they are all delightful.

princess leonor 12-17-2007 08:33 AM

That's beautiful christmascards of Cristina and Elena. Victoria and Froilan look so cute together, such a sweet picture. I like the picture with Juan, Pablo, Miguel and Irene very much as well, just too bad that Irene is looking so serieus!

Her_Majesty 12-17-2007 12:04 PM

Elena's children are really beautiful!
The card is lovely!
The same goes for the Urgangarin kids!

The cards:

I love that look on Irene's face! She seems so clueless with what's going on, she's like, "Huh?":lol:

During the baptism the press said Sofia's eyes are azul intenso (deep/dark blue?) and it will probably lighten as she grows up. Leonor's eyes are a clear blue, rimmed with gray, like her dad's.

crisiñaki 12-17-2007 01:04 PM

thanks all for the pics and info! :flowers:

I love the Kings card and the Urdangarin ones, Irene has gotten so beautiful, I guess her daddy has already bought the shotgun to scare potential boyfriends :lol:

LadyFinn 12-17-2007 01:10 PM

Both the Urdangarin and the Marichalar children look so very serious in these cards.

BeautyLeonor 12-17-2007 01:17 PM
