Sunday easter service is on March 27th? Can't wait to see Leonor and Sofia. Leonor is going to be 11 years old this year, she is soon becoming a teenager.

HereditaryPrincess 03-29-2016 02:32 PM

:previous: That's a good suggestion, it would be interesting to read about Spanish and international Easter traditions. :flowers:

Thank you to those who have shared the photos and videos of this year's Easter service. It seemed that apart from Queen Sofia and King Felipe, everyone was dressed quite informally but then again, people tend to dress more casually for church and I know this has already been discussed in the "Fashion for the little royals" thread, so I won't say anything more about it.

Leonor and Sofia are beautiful little girls, and Sofia is getting so tall! I think she is the same height as her older sister now. If I hadn't known who they were, I would've thought that they were unidentical twins. They are getting a similar hair colour too, but I think Sofia's is a bit lighter than Leonor's.

Leo and Sof are not little girls anymore, they look and behave like pre-teens. It was great to see them at the church, they were at their best proper princess mode. Leonor has the most gorgeous smile.

Everybody else looked great too, especially Queen Sofia.

I like seeing pictures of the royal grandparents with their grandchildren, too, but I guess one of the benefits of abdication is being able to dispense with any duties or traditions you don't care for. Hopefully JC still spends plenty of time with all his grandchildren in private.

Both girls are going to be tall but Sofia is going to be like her daddy, very, very tall.

Leonor still melts me. She is so delicate and appears to have such a big heart. Looking at videos she always turns to anyone calling her name or responds to an outstretched hand. Queen Sofia has mentioned several times how kind, calm and observant she is.

They are just growing so fast <sight>.

It was really pleasantly surprising to see Juan Carlos there earlier! He seems to be rekindling with Sofia lately as we've been hearing reports of them together more often so I hope this means that he will now be a more frequent attender of family events than in the past.
Leonor and Sofia are as pretty as always; I'm starting to see a bit of Queen Sofia in her little namesake, though I still think that Sofia jr. largely looks like Juan Carlos and Felipe the most. The girls are getting so tall now, they'll be the same hight as Letizia soon.

Royals are photographed pretty much wherever they go in public these days. I would expect pictures of Maxima or Mary leaving church too, especially if they were also with their kids. It surprises me that only the British and Spanish royal families get media coverage on the Easter holiday.

I saw photos of Queen Margrethe at church on Easter Sunday, she was with friends, no family.
I think Norwegian and Swedish royals do go, but they have chapels in the castle so we don’t see them. I’m also sure Belgian and Luxembourgish royals go to church, but they’re never photographed. I think the Dutch press doesn’t publish private photos of the royal family, we never see Maxima off duty or the princesses. I’ve read that Maxima goes to church regularly.

The Dutch media code works very well. The royal family is not photographed when privately going about their business (or at least these pictures aren't published - they are fine with 'fans' or 'normal people' taking pictures); so no pictures doesn't say that they are not doing something. I'm not necessarily saying that they went to church but no pictures published doesn't proof anything - it is known that the princesses play sports in competitions and no pictures are published... Furthermore, I know for sure that princess Beatrix attends church at times (as a former colleague of mine went to the same church) and we never see any pictures of her doing so.

The Danish Royal Family is photographed a bit more in private but might be abroad for the Easter holiday? Or not attend church or just aren't photographed while doing so... as it is not such a staged event like especially the Spanish yearly attendance in Mallorca.

I would expect the Belgians and Luxembourgish families to attend mass (although at least the Belgian RF tends to spend Easter abroad, so they might be lucky and not get 'caught' by cameras/paparazis).

So far only Sofia and her sister show a presence on the island, Letizia took a plane last Friday (a week ago) with her daughters to Rome while Felipe was supposed to join them last Tuesday. They are expected today in Palma. So the best guess is that all we will get to see is a super-fake-choreographed family outing tomorrow, one year after the War of the Queens the press will be watching carefully.

The whereabouts of Juan Carlos are unknown.

Holy Week celebrations are a big part of Spanish culture. It would be odd if Juan Carlos was not seen taking part in any religious cerimony over the Easter period.

I wish that Juan Carlos could be more interested in engagements with the rest of the family and attend the Easter service with them. After last year's debacle, I'm not surprised Letizia is all smiles this year! It's always nice to see the girls and I love how close Leonor seems to be to Felipe.

Yes it was indeed ,though he hasn't had many official acts in 2019 so far.

I am afraid to say King Felipe looked very pale at Easter Service, is he ill?
Happy Easter everybody.

He trimmed or thinned out his beard! (In some pictures on Easter it almost looked as if he shaved it off.) I think it gives him a bit of a different look.

Does anyone know when the tradition of the royal family started attending Easter Mass in Palma de Mallorca?

Since 1995 or 1996, but I would say that it has been more a tradition of Sofia than of the Royal Family, because Juan Carlos and the children have been absent on numerous occasions over the years.

2003 (not Felipe, Elena and Jaime)

In view of the increase in media attention, the family began to attend completely in 2004, coinciding with the arrival of Letizia. And they continued to do so until the divorce of Elena and Jaime in 2008.

Thank you. I tried to find some information about this tradition but I found nothing.
