It is royal Christmas card time!
The royals have started publishing the photos that will appear on their Christmas card this year. Below the Christmas card of the Spanish King and Queen featuring their daughters the Princess of Asturias and Infanta Sofia in a rather autumnly setting.

Happy Holidays 2022
The year 2022 is nearly over. Time to tell you I very much appreciate that you all visiting my blog. Some do already since the start in 1998 when it was a simple website, others have discovered it more recently. In October 2023 NettyRoyal (or Netty’s Royalty Blog as it was called in the first […]
