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?
Please do not misquote me. It may have covered the topics I elucidated, however, the show (which I've seen only once) has a propensity to sensationalize events and occurences without offerring sufficient analysis. Things don't happen in a vacuum. Moreover, I did not say that it wasn't serious tv. Rather, I wrote that it is "not serious history programing". There is a difference. One (and I don't necesarily mean you) should not judge an individual, particularly a historical/public figure, by what one only hears on tabloid television. It leads to distorted image. One should, in my opinion, consult a variety of different sources in order to get a balanced picture.

BTW, I don't think royals should marry royals. 
Again, I don't recall saying that you did. I was simply presenting an observation. That is, by believing the image of Prince Philip (and other royals) portrayed on programs (and I use the term loosely) such as "Meet the Royals" (as well as books and magazines of the tabloid genre), one could easily conclude that royals do not always have the desired and/or required attributes to become consorts.

Personally, I do not think that a royal title makes one suitable for consortship. Although I would not depend on the tabloids to make my judgment. But that's just me.

Not quite sure who is Letizia's grandmother -- or which one is her maternal grandmother and which one is her paternal grandmother ...

Hi!

She looks lovely, and they look great together. Wonder what height she is? He is very tall, isn't he? They make a stunning couple.

I think it’s wrong to compare them to Fred and Mary. Fred and Mary have been a couple for three years now. Felipe and this divorcee have been dating for seven months. Off course they look in love. They are in the new face of the relationship where you can’t keep your hands off each other. Fred and Mary are past that. They have been together so long that they know it’s real love.

Her CV and family background meet the quality to be Queen of Spain, it's really different to Mary & MM. Mary and MM only offer to the monarchy their good body building and the beauty.

But Mary is a lawyer. I think she's really intelligent and well educated.

Not like some reporter on TV who is probably just pretty. I do agree on MM though.

Letizia is intelligent and polite, she´s a journalist. I don´t think that Mary is more intelligent than Letizia.

Mary is a lawyer who never practiced law. She ended up doing something entirely different to what she studied. She also changed jobs on a regular basis. Basically never stuck to anything. Don't know much about MM's education but I do know that she studied that stopped and never really finished it, is this right?

Letizia is a true professional who's obviously respected in her field and had the tenacity and intelligence to go far in her chosen career. It shows that she's capable and has got her act together.

I'm pretty sure that Mary is more intelligent than the divorced reporter. I think that a lawyer is almost always smarter than a reporter.

Besides; Didn't Mary work as a lawyer at Microsoft?

Well "hun"... So you weren't trying to be mean? If that's the case I think you're a very mature person...

Off course a reporter CAN be smart (like you say). But I don't think that's the general rule. I don't like the way everyone here hates Mary. I think she's beautiful and she doesn't carry any baggage like this DIVORCED reporter.

" They began dating four months ago, but managed to keep their courtship under wraps until now"

I'm sorry but 4 months is not enough time for any marriage. Or better yet, he's probably thinking "I better get this part out of the way before skeletons start to come out and people start to complain like they did with JF's bride. Or get engaged quickly so that the all out winning over of mother can begin quickly.
