Cristina looked beautiful at the Ronald McDonald centre. She keeps getting better and better looks wise. However I'm not such a fan of her scraped back hair in Zaragoza- a bit plain in comparison.

Really nice pics! Thanks crisiñaki!:flowers:
The kids are so cute!

crisiñaki 11-26-2007 03:10 PM

you're welcome giov! :flowers:

what I love about this family is how natural they are: they just go on with their lives and are kind with the journalists, never a posed photoshoot, never photoshopped pics, I love that :smile:

Wonderfuls pictures N!!!

crisiñaki 11-26-2007 04:24 PM

you're welcome sis!

One of the things I liked the most is that they included Irene even if she cannot ride a bike yet, they like to be together as a family :wub:

acdc1 11-26-2007 04:41 PM

Great pictures, they seem like they're such an athletic family and enjoy spending time together.

chuchu 11-26-2007 06:49 PM

Are the men riding behind the family security people?

stellad 11-26-2007 07:36 PM

Good to see Inaki back in Spain.

That's because they are far away from the throne and don't even live in the captial city. I can't picture Charles, Diana, little William and Harry riding bikes in the street of London :biggrin:.

crisiñaki 11-26-2007 08:59 PM

you're absolutely right donnaK! :flowers:
in those times, that was the norm, now things have changed :smile:
that's why I love when Frederik rides his bike around the city with Christian in tow, or when you see Máxima taking her kids to Sinterklaas :flowers:
I love seeing royals in a "natural" setting, I'm not into photoshoots or posed pictures, that's one of the reasons I like the Dukes of Palma and their kids a lot: because they know who they are, but never go against the press or stop their lives or try to avoid them, they just go with the flow and that way, everyone is happier: the RF has beautiful PR in the Urdangarins, the journalists have a lot of material to show
it's a win-win situation:flowers:

Fred didn't ride the bike around the city, he took Christian to school, probably only very short distance. On Máxima taking her kids to Sinterklaas, she definitely knew there were photographers around, nothing different from Sofia taking Leonor, Froilan and Victoria to see the Disney show.
I don't think things have changed in most countries. I still can't picture most heirs riding bikes with their families around the city. When the heirs behave the same way as the Urdangarins, it might have the counter effects, too common (It's pefectly fine for the Urdangarins since both Inaki and Cristina have private jobs, live in their own house). The heirs are unlikely to be like the Urdangarins either since they don't live in a house by the street with the photographers camping out of their house (maybe except for the Danish CP family).

What lovely pictures of the whole family on their bycicles. I love the Undangarins. They are suach a handsome couple and their children are absolutely adorable.

I agree with you in that point :flowers:
What I meant is that the time of royals hiding their kids, going in and out back doors to avoid being seen is over
Now they let their kids out when they feel like it, and I love to watch families together going to amusement parks or to the movies and such ;)
No reason to hide or to be extremely secretive all the times, when they go out, there are almost always pics and such:smile:

They all slipped out of the backdoors at times. Perhaps some did more often than the others. Obviously the Dutch couple need not since the paparazzi pictures of their kids are banned by the press code :lol:.

What makes you think they don't? Because you've never seen, heard, or read about them?
