The Spanish royal family have released their first Christmas card since King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia took the Spanish throne earlier in 2014. The elegant magenta card features two images from the coronation, one of Felipe and Letizia with their two daughters, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia. And the second picture, on the back, was taken after the excitement of the morning's coronation, when it was time for the new King and Queen of Spain on the balcony of the Royal Palace in Madrid, where the couple beamed and waved down to the crowds of well-wishers who had gathered to witness the historic moment.
The card has a message in Spanish and English: "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2015", as well as a personalised message from the Spanish royal family, which reads: "That the excitement, the hope, and the goodwill of Christmas remain beyond these days of celebration."
The magenta card also featured eight-year-old Princess Leonor's first signature which includes the title, Princesa de Asturias.
The family also shared a card from King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.
