An early Happy Birthday to little Sofia!!!

The ten years of Sofia, the infanta who returned the joy to the Ortiz

The little daughter of the kings of Spain celebrates a decade.



The day that the infanta Sofia of All Saints of Bourbon and Ortiz did not flood in Madrid. Ten years ago, on April 29, 2007, it was a sunny Sunday of spring, very different from the dawn when the firstborn of kings Philip and Letizia came to the world two years before when a blanket of water bathed Madrid; As was the day of the prince's wedding, as did the Queen's sister's funeral.

The infanta Sofía arrived at the home of Zarzuela with the peace of the skies. The girl, who was born in the same hospital center as her sister Leonor , Ruber International, came into the world through a cesarean, like Leonor, weighed slightly less than her, 3,310 kilos, was 50 centimeters.
When days later presented her to the media wrapped in a scarf, she was not the protagonist, it was her older sister, a mischievous little girl who tangled with the microphones, tried to approach the newborn and during the week in which his Mother and sister remained in the clinic, had given fantastic pictures to photographers stationed in the hospital.

The child was baptized with the name of the paternal grandmother , Sophia , who in Greek is wisdom. His arrival in the world meant some peace with the environment for his mother, who in the seventh month of gestation lived perhaps the great tragedy of his life, the death of his little sister. Grandma Sofía overtook the Ortiz in the drama of Erika's death, they say that was one of the reasons - not the only one - for which Letizia chose the name of the second of her daughters.

The girl who today turns 10 is the eighth granddaughter of the kings Juan Carlos and Sofía , the Benjamin. During her baptism, on July 15, celebrated in the gardens of the palace of the Zarzuela, the Infanta Sofia, Royal Highness and second in the order of succession, was not the protagonist either. Again, Leonor stole flat. Memorable images of the heiress: barefoot and making smiles to the circumspect Rouco Varela . Walking with shoes in hand, a girl pizpireta and funny outside the protocol that required the ceremony.

Sofia, also baptized with waters of the Jordan River, had no real godparents, were chosen under different criteria, his godmother was his maternal grandmother and the godfather Prince Kostantin of Bulgaria, his father's great friend.

THE SECONDS
Is this the fate of the second daughter of kings, to live in the shadow of her elder sister? It is unlikely. His parents make no distinction . They are equally demanding with the formation of their two daughters. It is true that they take special care that the child does not live in a traumatic way the second role she has played in history, not in her family .

In any couple the second son usually feels a mixture of admiration and jealousy of the big brother, in this case the thing is complicated in spite of the insistence of the kings Felipe and Letizia because his small daughter does not feel inferior to his sister. Something that happened when Leonor made his first official photo with the King and Prince for the Zarzuela website. Sofia was not in the photo, and had to make another snapshot with her, which was saved in the family album . In spite of these anecdotes, the own Letizia, has counted that Sofia feels passion by its older sister, and that already since small it chased it crawling and calling it "Leoló, Leoló". Leonor has also been an elder sister, has made many gestures of protection to the small, also of recommendations,

Although it is unthinkable to compare Leonor and Sofia with their ancestors, Queen Elizabeth and her sister Luisa Fernanda, who grew up between abandonment and manipulation, there are closer examples that demonstrate a seemingly unavoidable rivalry between siblings. Queen Elizabeth of England and her sister Margaret and even more recent, the case of the Danish brothers Federico and Joaquin .

WHO IS SOFÍA DE BORBÓN?

Little we know of the tastes, hobbies or details of the Spanish infanta. Her public appearances, like those of her sister, are summed up in three, at most four, annuals. Easter Mass, a summer inn in Marivent, some year, the first day of school and, finally, some institutional act. Sofia is part of the Royal Family until her sister is queen, but she has few protocolary obligations; Your life is not designed from the cradle .
Even so, she has participated in the same official acts as the heiress to the throne. They have attended twice the parade of the armed forces, where both fall surrendered before the goat of the legion; To the opening of the XII legislature and of course to the acts of abdication of his grandfather and coronation of his father.

On those occasions, Sofia's attitude has evolved in the same way that her physical appearance has radically changed. At Easter Masses, the Infanta appeared withdrawn and timid as she watched and gripped the friendly hand, that of her grandmother, that of her father, or that of Queen Letizia. The comparisons are odious, but unavoidable, and Sophia suffered from the charm, the light transmitted by her older sister. If Leonor catches the cameras, Sofia looked at them suspiciously.

Until Sofia, the plump baby in her father's arms presented to the virgin of Atocha with only five months, has grown to overcome Leonor, has no blue eyes but a beautiful smile and unimaginable self-confidence. And estilazo. To the point that the international press has already fixed the elegance of the little Bourbon Ortiz. With trench, military Saharan and jeans, despite being a girl there are those who insist that a girl is born , a fashion benchmark. After the passage of the prima Olimpia of Greece ?

The truth is that the girl who today turns 10 has undergone a true transformation. The shy, almost elusive, Sofia is daring, witty and funny and maintains very good relations with her companions . She studied elementary school in Santa Maria de los Rosales school, is a well-known and well-rounded student. She likes animals and is very skilled in computer science and almost an expert in new technologies.

She speaks English with her grandmother and the British nanny. It receives classes of protocolary English, and studies Galician, Basque, Catalan, history and the dynasty of the Bourbons . In a few weeks she will receive the first communion, dressed in the uniform of the school, just as happened with Leonor, without exorbitant celebrations.

And if we do a little bit of fiction, we could see it on a throne, the Danish. Christian of Denmark, the age of his sister Leonor, the only king surrounded by queens in the future of the courts of Europe. For not thinking about George Windsor, something small for the Spanish infanta.

To continue with the fiction, will Sofia celebrate her tenth birthday with an "afternoon of girls" and incognito in the streets of Madrid hidden behind a visor, as daughter of Angelina and Brad, as her sister celebrated her last anniversary? If that happens, today it can not be, because his parents, Felipe and Letizia, attend another birthday, that of Guillermo de Holanda , who has been celebrating his 50th anniversary for several days. The weekend Máxima and Guillermo celebrate it in The Hague with the royalty. In any case, happy birthday!

Lol, setting her up with Christian already?!?!? Can you imagine the mother-in-laws face?? Hehe!

Happy birthday to Sofia, who I hope one day will choose her own husband, someone she loves and who loves her in return  Hug

Can someone translate the idiom with the passage, "After the passage of the prima Olimpia of Greece ?" Prima, first... her first cousin (actually Sofia's second cousin)? Or is it prima in a different sense? Because that's such an odd name to throw in the article's mix... or just horrible name dropping.

The translation is a bit difficult but the journalist is asking if Sofia is going to follow Maria Olimipia (indeed her cousin = prima) footsteps and turn into a "it girl".

Or is it prima in a different sense? Because that's such an odd name to throw in the article's mix... or just horrible name dropping.

Just as a warning, I'm far from qualified to translate Castilian to English. But here is my contribution  :

Quote
Hasta que Sofía, el bebé rollizo que en brazos de su padre se presentaba ante la virgen de Atocha con tan solo cinco meses, ha ido creciendo hasta superar a Leonor, no tiene ojos azules pero sí una preciosa sonrisa y un desparpajo inimaginable. Y estilazo. Al punto que ya se ha fijado la prensa internacional en la elegancia de la pequeña Borbón Ortiz. Con trench, con sahariana militar y vaqueros, a pesar de ser una niña a hay quien insiste en afirmar que ha nacido una it girl, un referente de moda. ¿Tras los paso de la prima Olimpia de Grecia?

Until (the moment) that Sofia, the plump baby in her father's arms presented to the virgin of Atocha with only five months, has grown to overcome Leonor. She hasn't got blue eyes but a beautiful smile and unimaginable self-confidence. And estilazo (a big fashion sense). To the point that the international press has already noticed the elegance of the little Bourbon Ortiz. Wearing trench (coat), military Saharan and jeans, despite being only a girl there are those who insist that a 'it girl' has appeared, a fashion reference. Is she following the steps of cousin Olimpia of Greece?


The article is pretty ridiculous!
It made me laugh more than once. It is the type of sugary piece that the Daily Mail wrote about Kate Middleton at the time of their marriage. ... It's so silly! Laughbounce:
Poor girl...

I posted it because I like it that Sofia gets some attention.  Flowers

Little Sofia seems a smart and witty girl. She's also going to be very pretty when she grows up. She deserves better than Xian and his dysfunctional family.

Sofia's First Communion will take place on May 17. She will get it together with her class colleagues, as Leonor did.

Leonor and Sofia attended a cooking class for children by a renowned chef of 2 Michelin stars. Parents were not allowed in the kitchen. Other kids told their parents afterwards that they attended. There were stories before that they loved helping their mom cook. Yes, Letizia cooks. Now we got the confirmation of those stories.
