Has anyone else seen the short interview they gave to the press this evening?
Guess what, she handled it perfectly :P

Personally I think it's good they kept their relationship secret, so there was no pressure from some very conservative aristocrats

Looks great. I'm watching it now. TVEI is showing the orchestra warming up and the various people coming in. You see the ushers and everything.

has been exemplary in the areas of discretion and support of the queen, even if he has no tact and even less polish.
an oxymoron, if I have ever heard of one.

Firstly, Meet the royals is tabloid tv, which sensationalizes things in order to draw in viewers. It is not serious history programing. Secondly, as someone who knows quite a bit about him...........................
It may be "tabloid" tv and not "serious" tv, but the program nevertheless covered all the topics you mentioned. Did you have anything new to add?

BTW, I don't think royals should marry royals. For one thing there's no political need for those kind of alliances anymore, and for another, it encourages too small of a gene pool which leads to insanity and other serious disorders.

I thought so too. He's can be so uncouth and yet he's never been caught in an affair -- which is unusual considering the rest of his peers. He's been sorely tempted I'd guess from having that Greek machismo, and yet still having to bow to his wife in the affairs of state.

They are a very attractive and terribly happy looking couple. They also look very comfortable with one another and very much in love and excited about one another.

Question: is this the official engagement? Ring, press conference, etc...?

Congrats to the happy couple! They truly look like a team. :flower:

Great concert. The conductor has been around these parts. Strange set of pieces. Sure, Spanish-themed pieces but by Russians and referring to summer. Of course, it was 28 C here today and so I know I was thinking it was rather warm for November as well. Anyway, Felipe looked rather bored and dull when they were sitting down and everything. She glows but looks rather small in comparison of course. I suppose he's a dominating presence. I want to see a queen or a princess who is taller than her husband. Also he is a little too tall. He's considerably taller than the rest of his family as well. They played "Happy Birthday" as well for Sofia. Loved that hall. Nice chandelier. I'm thinking of getting one that size for my foyer as well. A bird told me that it would be funny if Letizia fell asleep at the concert. I couldn't agree more. It was on for 2 hours. Bravo to TVE for their coverage.

The pictures shows a man much in love. The way they held hands and his never leaving her side...unlike Fred and Mary :P sorry can't help but compare.

She looked very comfortable and confident in the limelight too. They look so good together. What a great match!
