All these pictures are incredibly moving... It is all the more moving to see letizia with thta big belly and this sad look on her face.
I wonder where is adelaide. She loves and admires Letizia so much, it's weird she didn't come yet to the forum...

It is kind of voyeurism.
yeah. I agree. voyeurism is a good word for it. we've seen lots of royal funerals etc and sadness by relatives of the deceased but to have the raw grief that is usually kept behind closed doors splashed all over the media is a bit much.

I have never had anyone really close to me die before. When I heard about this I felt sad, but the awfulness of it didn't really hit home with me until I viewed these photographs and videos. Now, after seeing the raw grief on these people's faces it makes me hurt with them in the deep of my heart. I now can pray for them better, grieve with them more, because it has hit home. It's the same way with the awful tradgedy of September 11, 2001. I live in the U.S., but in the south. I heard about the news and thought how terrible it was, but it really didn't hit home with me until I had seen the footage and photographs. I think this is a good reason for making these photos available for public viewing.

Hey, they're family...royal or not royal, I couldn't possibly have expected something different...

Regarding the human-feelings thing, we probably tend to forget that being a royal apart from being a lifestyle, is mainly a job - at least that's how I see it. But please, she IS human just as any of us!

I think it is terribly sad, but unfortunately life is like this. Letizia´s life is in the public eye cause she is the future Queen of Spain. I think it is very brave to let the press and more important her people to share this with her, as they have shared the beautiful moments of her life.

I hope this news wont affect her already troubled prenancy

whatever the cause, I hope she is at peace now. And I'm glad that the Princess has a strong bond with her husband and his family. She and the new baby will need all thier strength to deal with her sorrow.
My brother was 30 when he passed away from Aids, and to have a life taken away at such a young age hurts deep.

It appears that you and I have something in common. My brother was killed in a car accident when he was 23. IMO, watching the parents suffer is the worst part in all of this. Please accept my condolences for you loss.

God bless the this young woman's family.

That is exactly how I intended that to be read. It is hard to attach emotion when typing online. Sometimes it seems like people think Royals aren't allowed to have personal feelings. I in no way meant that to sound like a put down towards her.

No one believes royalty does not have personal feelings. they're human. I am sure royals weep and grieve deeply when their loved ones die. It's just that the public doesnt usually see it.

I dont know. I mean Letizia did allow these photos to be taken. she could have rushed in the door wearing sunglasses or something like that. but I cant helping feeling like the photos have a voyeuristic quality to them.

Oh I cant imagine what Telma is going through she was not able to make it in time . And my heart goes out to letizia she looks so sad but to lose your baby sister at such a young age must be heartbreaking also.

I agree with you pollyemma, sadly the press and public want to know and they'll keep pushing and inventing stories 'till the truth is released, IMHO they should disclose it just to give little Carla some peace

everytime I think about that little one I feel awful

As long as the family knows...its really no one else's business IMO.

Again, Letizia is a member of the royal family, Erika was not. And really, people are going to think what they want any way as evidenced by the various opinions of this board. We can all see the same picture and have our own view on what it is saying.

I agree with you it is none of our business . As for her daughter I am sure when she is old enough to understand they will tell her what happened to her mother.

thank you for your condolences. Please accept mine for you. As I stated in another thread about this, one thing my mother kept repeating when my brother passed away is that "Children should bury their parents. Parents should not have to bury their child/children".
My brothers anniversary of his death is next month and when I see these pictures I feel the pain that Letiza is showing on her face. When I see her parents, I think of my mom and the pain that she felt and the grief she had to endure.
Truthfully, I think the family is in too much pain, confusion as to the sudden loss, and many other emotions that they are dealing with to even notice the intrusion of the press. And at this point, the press is just a tiny inconvience. Dealing with the grief and helping each other understand is what is important. Inside of closed doors or outside in public for everyone to see makes no difference when your in this kind of pain.
speaking of which, have the news reported anything of the state of health of the Princess? In a couple of those pictures, it looks as if she is ready to collapse. I'm sure she has the best of help and there is already a doctor on hand, but she sure looks as if she needs some rest.
If they had the funeral today, than at least the hardest part is over. Now they just have to come to terms with her death, if that is at all possible for them.

I've just seen the news on TV, and I noticed that Letizia sort of kneeled before hugging the King, during the funeral. Does she do this on a regular basis?
