Christmas Card Royals
Feliz Navidad! Princesses Leonor, 10, and Sofia, 8, take centre stage as the Spanish royal family release their annual Christmas card
The Spanish royal family have released their annual Christmas cards, with King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia letting their beautiful young daughters steal the festive limelight.
Princess Leonor, 10, and Princess Sofia, 8 feature in a warm embrace on the front of the card and even add their own handwritten signatures inside, which is perhaps a subtle reference to the fact that the girls are considered the future of the Spanish monarchy.
First-in-line-to-the-throne Leonor, who has blue eyes while her sister has brown, throws a protective arm around her sibling for the cute photo.
The smiling royals both wear their blonde hair in a neat side braid and loose at the back. While Leonor has a navy blue cardigan on over her dress, Sofia, 17 months younger, has opted for a cream and green jacket.
It’s a different take on the image the family chose last year, which featured two photographs that were captured in June 2014, shortly after Felipe took the throne from his father Juan Carlos. The images showed both the new King and Queen alone and with their daughters in the second shot.
