Spain’s royal Christmas greetings revealed

The Spanish Royal Family has revealed their 2022 Christmas cards.

Casa Real released the card of King Felipe and Queen Letizia with their two daughters, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofía, as well as the card for his parents, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía.

The card chosen by King Felipe and Queen Letizia this year features Princess Leonor, 17, and Infanta Sofía, 15, at Zarzuela Palace in the autumn.

The sisters are seen smiling happily, with Sofía draping her arm around her older sister.

The King, Queen, Princess and Infanta all signed the Christmas card, as usual, with a handwritten message by King Felipe included as well. The handwritten note says, “With great affection and our best wishes.”

Cards with the King’s message will be translated and also sent out in English to those who send them cards in English.

As expected, the card of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía features a painting with a simple message. Both their signatures are printed on as well. The card of the former monarch and his wife is only sent out to close friends and family, whereas the card released by Felipe and Letizia will be sent to the public.

King Felipe will give his annual holiday address to the Spanish people on Christmas Eve.
