Don Jaime's baptism set

June 24, 1908

Infante Don Jaime, the newborn son of the King and Queen of Spain, will be baptised on June 29, according to the New York Times. His godparents will be Bavaria's Prince Regent, Luitpold, and Infanta Isabel of Spain.
The Associated Press is reporting that the little Prince "came before he was expected, and as a result many of the personages, including the bishop of Segovia, whose duty it was to be present on the occasion, did not reach the palace in time."
King Alfonso formally presented his second son to the courtiers "who had gathered in the throne room" earlier this morning. A 21-gun salute was fired outside the La Granja palace, where the infant was born.
