Miguel Urdangarín celebrated their first communion at La Zarzuela

The third son of the Duke of Palma, Miguel Urdangarín, nine years, received her First Communion at the Zarzuela Palace yesterday, Saturday 28 May. The child is the fifth grandson of the Kings of Spain and tenth in the line of succession. The ceremony took place in the gardens of the Palacio de la Zarzuela and had an intimate, since they have only witnessed their parents, siblings, immediate family and closest friends.

The last time they held a ceremony of this kind in this place was in 1975 when she made her First Communion the Prince of Asturias. The church service was presided by Spain's military archbishop, Monsignor Juan del Rio Martin, assisted by the Salvadoran priest Alexander Diaz. After the religious ceremony, the Royal Family and guests have taken a snack and then lunch.

The ceremony was attended the Infanta Elena, his children, Froilan and Victoria and Prince Felipe with Letizia Ortiz and her daughters, Leonor and Sofia. They have also assisted the king's sister, Pilar and Margarita, accompanied by their children, and the Infante Don Carlos. He also attended the Queen's niece, Princess Alexia of Greece with their children.

It has also come a wide representation of the family Urdangarín. Some friends of Miguel del Liceo Francés, where he studied while living in Barcelona, have come with their parents. Eight grandchildren of the Kings were baptized in the Palacio de la Zarzuela, but the four older received First Communion in their respective colleges.

The two older brothers Michael, John and Paul received the sacrament in the Church of the Capuchins in Sarria with other colleagues in the French School in Barcelona. And the children of the Infanta Elena, Felipe and Victoria Marichalar, did Communion in the Church of the Dominicans in Alcobendas, both with their classmates San Patricio.
