  1. Letizia looks amazing- this outfit is really stylish. Queen Sofia also looks smart. I like the Infanta Sofia's outfit, it's a bit different from usual and I love the shade of blue. Whilst I like Leonor's dress I find it a bit young for her and I also think both girls are a bit old to do the matching shoe thing. But those are minor quibbles, they are a lovely family and I love these Easter appearances.

  2. I think it is about time to dress the girls a little bit more teenage like. They always come over as frist graders.

    1. Yes i agree, they are dressed so old fashioned. Queen Letizia should have worn a dress considering its easter sunday and that she is quuen would have been more appropiate. I can't image any member of British royals or others dressed like that on Easter Sunday

      Delete
    2. That is because they aren't the British Royals, and also because we are in the 21st century, and women royal or common, don't feel a need to wear a dress as a symbol of faith or respect . Most of us don't judge the style of other monarchies, regardless of how little they resemble the actual people that support them. Lovely family, enjoying Easter Sunday together.

    3. But they aren't the British royals and this has always been slightly less formal and dressy in that sense. Most British people attending church wouldn't dress like the BRF do...

      Letizia hasn't worn anything other than trousers for nearly a decade, and both Elena and Cristina have worn trousers in the past.

    4. Not everyone has a model in the british Monarchy from the point of view of fashion. And from the viewpoint of Traditions the Monarchy in Spain is thousand years old so that is, I suppose,they simply behave as they wish.

    5. It's really funny that you call them old fashioned compared with the british. It is the world on its head. LOL

  3. What a classy, elegant, beautiful family! God bless them on this Easter Day!

  4. Lovely family. The older Leonore gets, the more she looks like Queen Sofia to me. I like Leonore's sweet dress. I hate fashion victim trendy clothes on young girls, especially on an occasion like Easter. The farther they can stay away from trashy trends, the better.

    1. I think Leonor could wear clothes that are slightly more her age without falling into looking trashy or a fashion victim.

      Delete
    2. Leonor at 12-1/2 and Sofia at 11 this month are too old for little girls dresses. Princess Elisabeth of Belgium was always dressed appropriately for her age and never looked trashy or a fashion plate. Methinks Letizia doesn't want competition from her daughters!

    3. Perhaps Leonor and Sofia choose their own outfits for Easter Mass?

    4. Gabriella, what a mean thing to say, in just a sentence you judge a woman of whom you know absolutely nothing, and throw shade on her as a mother. And this is why Queen Letizia and King Felipe are so careful about not overexposing their daughters, there will be plenty of time for them to be subjected to all kinds of derisive comments. In the spirit of this Holly Week I wish you a fantastic Easter Monday.

    7. I see absolutely nothing wrong with either Leonore or Sofia's dresses. Totally disagree that they need to be more "fashionable" at their ages.

  5. I look forward to seeing Queen Sofia in her Easter egg jewelry each year. It's so uniquely her. I noticed King Juan Carlos has been accompanying his wife in public more. I hope that means their marriage is better these days.

  6. Very Wonderful Spanish Royal Family

  7. Although Letizia looks nice I don't think it is appropriate for Easter Sunday mass. To me it looks like a shopping outfit. But maybe it's just that I hold Easter Sunday to be of more importance than they do in Spain.

    1. Bit of a sweeping generalisation about a whole nation's attitude to a religious holiday.

      Delete
    2. I just don't know. Not intending to offend any Spaniards. They don't get Christmas gifts at the same time as we do in my country so there could be different customs when it comes to Easter as well.

      Delete
    3. You are absolutely correct, you know very little about Spanish customs and traditions, you can even google Christmas..... Spain as a Román Catholic country ( for the most part) celebrates The Epiphany, and children open presents on the day that the the three kings arrived to the manger to offer Jesus theor gifts . Saint Nicholas & Santa Claus are mostly protestan Holidays. Easter Sunday in Spain is called resurrection, and it is celebrated as such. These days the church is struggling to stay relevant, so they have done away with veils, long sleeves, dresses and are welcoming the people just as they are.

      Delete
    4. Cherry Blossom - I think that's true of many European countries. Lots of people just turn up in jeans etc. even on big religious days.

      In some ways, that's a shame because it's nice to see people making an effort but it isn't a reflection of the depth of people's faith.

      However, I think everyone here looks very smart, I think the Queen looks very chic and elegant and the girls very pretty.

  8. Es hilarante que haya personas que se crean que las costumbres de su país deben ser LEY para los demás. Afortunadamente, a la Familia Real Española no le va la carcundia . Esta Misa de Pascua es un acto familiar, no figura en la Agenda Oficial, así que se visten de forma normal, sencilla y moderna.
    Y las niñas son niñas porque aún tienen cuerpos de niñas y se visten como tal. Espero que jamás se pongan objetos ridículos en la cabeza.

    1. Why do some people have to defend their own Royal Family by making rude comments about another? It's not a competition. It is possible to like what some people wear and not like what others wear and guess what? It has nothing to do with where they come from. Because believe it or - the majority of British people don't dress like their royal family, especially when going to church.

      The Easter service in Windsor is also a family event not an official duty - it's just a different (No better, no worse) way of celebrating.

      This is a fashion forum, people have different tastes, we aren't all going to like the same things.

      I honestly don't understand why some people can't get it's the clothes under discussion not the people or the nation.

    2. Not to contradict to anyone here, just... I've been away from reading posts/commenting here for a while and now that I took a peek to newmyroyals again I realized what bothers me here: even though this is a fashion blog and one would rightfully say commenters should stick to talking about the clothes I can clearly see now this is just not the way things/the world/people work. You can't completely separate someone's personality, attitude and (wrong)doings from his/her appearance. And honestly, I won't even try it in the future. I think it would be hypocrisy on many levels.

  9. Did any of you see the video of Letizia, Sofia and the girls? Omg! The Infanta is pulling at the girla for a pic. Letizia seems to be trying to block the pics and pulling at girls. The Infanta pushes Sofia's arm away rather roughly. Media is really going after Letizia. Shocking

    4. All I can see is a twelve year old who does not want to be hugged that fiercely in public by her grandmother. Normal reaction! When I kissed my twelve year old son goodbye on school entrance, he said he will have to die now, because everybody could see he is a baby boy :-))))

    5. H ve a look instead at this video, beautiful pictures of the family and the girls, at 1.42 there are the cutest pictures of Felipe and Leonor that show the deep bond and affection between them, leonor is really daddy' girl :-))

      And at 1.14 you can see how proud Juan Carlos is of his granddaughter and heiress to the throne. Beautiful family!

    6. Oh, Beth, come on... I wouldn't call the scene shocking either but it's not just what you say... It's also Letizia trying to have a 100% control over the situation. I mean, Queen Sofía is 79 years old, she is at a public outing with her granddaughters (a rare occasion by the way since Letizia tries to keep the girls away from the limelight as much as it's possible, very wisely so), she seems exited to be photographed with the girls... For heaven's sake, imagine any ordinary grandmother at a family gathering (a wedding, christening) where photos are taken, they would want to pose with their grandchildren too! Can you say why is this such a terrible thing that Queen Letizia had to prevent it? It's not exactly Leonor's move that makes me wonder, it's Letizia's fussing that I don't get.

      Again, I wouldn't call it shocking, I think the whole thing is just a bit overdramatized but it's revealing for sure.

      And saying "oh, that's nothing, here's another video, how cute they are" is like the scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding when Tula says she loves the guy and her mother replies, "Oh, Toula, eat something".

      Delete
    7. Maybe all of this is just a case of a young girl not wanting her grandmother and mother hanging all over her, nothing more. I can remember being that age and not wanting relatives holding my hand and the like. I agree with Beth!

  11. Leute wollten ein Foto machen und die Großmutter hat die Mädchen an sich gezogen... Die Mutter wollte das nicht, da sie nie private Einblicke gibt. Großmutter hat das überhört und Leonor wollte das plötzlich nicht mehr... Gut das Leonor ihren eigenen Kopf hat. Sie ist eh immer so brav... aber sie soll doch mal Königin werden, da muss man auch durchsetzungsstark sein :)

    1. Good point. What was remarkable to me is that the girls smiled for the picture until their mother came and tried to stop it. Then Leanor didn't want to be a part of it.

    1. Exactly. Many of the big bloggers who are often called upon for news articles are calling this... shocking behavior. Felipe looked non too happy. Clearly Letizia was trying to block the photo. Sofia was trying to move Letizia aeay and move w the girls. I think the Infanta got annoyed w both of them. Oy

  13. I looked at the video again. What I think is, there was probably some kind of protocol how the process should be. While walking down the aisle the family was greeting people on the left and right and shaking hands. The girls did so too. I would assume that the protocol would say that the king and queen would leave the church at first with their daughters, former king and queen behind them. And then line up for photos on the stairs. But somehow Sofia changed things, she vigorously grabbed the girls holding them very tight to pose for a photo. The girls were surprised and didn't seem happy, they searched the look of their mother, because obviously they were told other (greet people until the stairs). Letizia started to get nervous, she walked up and down, continuing to greet people, which was the plan. Then she caught the eye of Leonor, who obviously was very uncomfortable, she walked to her make her feel safe. But Sofia draw the girl even tighter. And Leonor pushed away the hand, which is a normal reaction.
    Felipe intervenered and said a word to his wife and touched her arm to calm her, but he also spoke a word to his mother and her face froze. Juan Carlos was watching the scene knowingly.

    In my observation it was Queen Sofia who overstepped several lines here. The line of the protocol, the line of ranking, fact is she is not the queen anymore and the line of of self-determination of an adolescent. Another video shows that she did that outside the church again, she grabbed the girl again and planted a kiss on her forhead which she obviously didn't like. No twelve year old does. Letizia came again to protect her daughter and wiped the kiss away. I would have done the same for my daughter.

    I don't speak spanish well, but from what I read in spanish media Letizia is slaughtered for what is a normal motherly reaction and not a single word to question Sofias behaviour. Media can be cruel!

    1. Beth, you have grasped the situation quite well, what is missing is the previous part of that video, obviously edited with dark intentions. La infanta Sofía is about to greet an older lady in the crowd, and at that time grandma ( surely oblivious) grabs first her and then Leonor to take the picture and leaves the woman with her hand in midair, that is when Letizia intervenes reminding the girls that people are
      waiting, the rest is just pure speculation, but in my view, and regardless of what was said, Queen Sofia seems to be the one acting out of context, and definitely holding the girl with a little more force than necessary. I don't believe for a minute that Letizia didn't want grandma to take thevpicture with the girls, knowing full well that they will be posing outside for several minutes. And, yes the press is having a field day tearing Letizia apart, but few mention that the actions of the Queen Mother were not stellar, and at the end if the day is Leonor that is receiving all kind of insults from the anti-monarchy faction. It seems to me that the Royal family has not assumed yet that the queen is Letizia.

    2. And there is another video.... and it is also.... interesting. With Grandma kissing Leonor on head and Letizia rubbing it away...
      I find it all sad in the end.
      But it seems that all is not well in the family at this point. There seems to be discord about a book and Sofia is allegedly trying to bring the criminal daughter back into fold and this is causing some tension.
      Ah families.....we all have our dysfunction. Ours is not in the public eye. Or at least not in the way that it travels across the globe

    3. I think Beth expressed eloquently what I was going to say on the cathedral exit situation. Leonor is no longer a young girl and she is the heir to the throne. Sofia has to think more, she invaded Leonor's personal space. Letizia had her back to the camera, shielding her daughter(s). It wasn't perfect, but with the current awareness of the need to raise females to protect themselves from sexual harassment, I can't criticize Letizia's actions. She was a mother defending her daughter's rights.

      Delete
  14. Leonor is the one who seemed annoyed to me - her grandmother grabbed her pretty tightly. Ridiculous thought that Letizia didn't want pictures - the family had already posed before going into church.
    I definitely agree with Beth and Cherry Blossom!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Whatever the situation, Letizia should not have intervened between her mother in law and her daughter as it now looks like they are having problems. Perhaps a word to her mother in law in private would have been better.

  16. Beth and Chery Blossom, very good observation from both!

  17. Yes, I saw the video. It's really terrible to do that to Queen Sofia who has endured a lot of things in her life with dignity and who seems to be a very nice person. I read in an article that Queen Sofia was sad not to see her granddaughters often enough ........ I hope that this harpy Laetizia will not win in paradise!

  18. Some gossipy Spanish TV show had a lip reader on and he claims that Letizia said to Queen Sofia "Where are you going in front?". He also said King Juan Carlos told her that if she didn't want her daughters to appear in photos she shouldn't have had children with the king.

    1. Ha ha ha, esos programas de cotilleo pagan a "especialistas" para que digan lo que les ordenan decir. Yo vi ese programa y la "lectora de labios" adivinaba lo que Letizia decía hasta cuando estaba de espaldas. Pura basura.
      Urdangarín está a punto de entrar en prisión, así que hay que poner el ventilador para esparcir basura sobre el eslabón más débil y distraer la atención.
      ¿Por qué salió el vídeo 2 días después de Pascua? Para que la gente no hable de la presencia de Cristina en Madrid. Todo al estilo vieja escuela.

      Delete
    2. To me this implies that the picture session was supposed to be in front. If that is so, why is Sofia smothering/leading two autonomous beings? For all that she has 'done for Spain', her actions have hurt the little girl's image.
