Under an intense sun, which motivated some fainting, even among the troops, the Princes made their appearance (Don Felipe, in a uniform of the Ground Forces, Doña Letizia, dressed in rigorous black, with a long suit that let visible her early pregnancy and mantilla), accompanied by civilian, religious and military authorities.

After the speech of the president of La Rioja, Pedro Sanz (who underlined the antiterrorist fight made by the UAR and the Civil Guard as a whole), Doña Letizia emphasized the values of "loyalty, sacrifice and accomplishment" demonstrated by the body to whose lieutenant colonel commander she delivered the flag.

In his words of gratefulness, Hernandez considered as a "transcendental fact" the presence of the Princes at the delivery of the national flag, "a standard that will remember us what we have been, what we are and what we will have to be: firm servants of Spain".

The act at the Equestrian centre ended with an moved tribute to the members of the UAR, who died in combat, specially in terrorist acts (a total of five agents, whose names were remembered, while some of their companions deposited a crown before a monument with a great cross).

Immediately afterwards, the Princes and all the authorities (as well as a numerous people, who cheered Don Felipe and Doña Letizia) went to the outside of the Equestrian centre, to attend a parade performed by some of the forces of the UAR.

Carlota, I imagine that he would be a little nervous knew that everybody was pending of her. In addition it has not either been a speech with a easy subject, a very institutional speech and for Civil Guards, speaking of its dedication to the antiterrorist fight. "lihgt" was not a subject indeed. What I ask myself is if Letizia would not have an unbearable one of heat, to the 1 p.m., whole of black and with this heat.

Letizia's speech (in Spanish) *I'm translating it right now!*

http://www.casareal.es/casareal/uargc01di.html

Palabras de Su Alteza Real la Princesa de Asturias en el acto de amadrinamiento de la Bandera de la Unidad de Acción Rural de la Guardia Civil
Logroño, 15 de junio de 2005

Es para mí un gran honor y un motivo de emoción especial, poder presidir por primera vez, junto a mi esposo el Príncipe de Asturias, un solemne acto de entrega de la Bandera de España y hacerlo, precisamente, a la Unidad de Acción Rural de la Guardia Civil.

Permitidme que, antes de continuar, exprese nuestra gran alegría por encontrarnos en Logroño y que dirija nuestro afecto y admiración a todos los riojanos, así como un saludo muy cordial a las autoridades que nos acompañan y a todos los asistentes.

Como Madrina de esta entrega, deseo comenzar mis palabras cumpliendo fielmente y con agrado el encargo que he recibido de S.M. el Rey de transmitir a la Guardia Civil y, muy en particular, a su Unidad de Acción Rural, Su felicitación más sincera y cordial con motivo del vigésimo quinto aniversario de la creación de esta prestigiosa Unidad.

Una felicitación a la que el Príncipe de Asturias y yo misma nos unimos de todo corazón, y que hacemos extensiva a todos y cada uno de vosotros y a vuestras familias, cuyo amor y comprensión os ayudan día a día a cumplir con ilusión renovada las misiones tan importantes que tenéis encomendadas.

Esta Bandera ha sido generosamente donada por el Consejo de Gobierno de la Comunidad Autónoma de la Rioja; hecho que pone de manifiesto una vez más, la identificación tan estrecha de esta noble tierra y de sus gentes con la Guardia Civil, una de las instituciones que recibe de los españoles un gran cariño y una de las valoraciones más altas.

De ahí que quiera aprovechar esta ocasión tan singular para ofrecer a todos los hombres y mujeres que integran la Guardia Civil, nuestro sincero reconocimiento por el valioso trabajo que desarrollan, guiado siempre por el amor a la Patria y destinado a proteger el libre ejercicio de los derechos y libertades de los ciudadanos. Reconocimiento, también, por su abnegada entrega a nuestra sociedad, por su ejemplar vocación de servicio basada en el honor, la lealtad, el compañerismo, el espíritu de sacrificio y el exacto cumplimiento del deber.

Esta Unidad de Acción Rural es reconocida como un magnífico ejemplo de la permanente capacidad de adaptación de la Guardia Civil, en su afán por cumplir el mandato constitucional de garantizar las necesidades de nuestra sociedad en materia de seguridad ciudadana. A lo largo de sus primeros veinticinco años, la Unidad se ha ido transformando y perfeccionando, hasta hacerse merecedora del alto honor que supone la concesión del derecho al uso de la Enseña Nacional.

La preparación esmerada que recibís para alcanzar la especialización que os caracteriza, así como la tenacidad y la determinación en el cumplimiento de vuestra noble misión -al afrontar muchos riesgos y dificultades- son la mejor garantía de éxito para el ejercicio de vuestra importante labor diaria.

Las cualidades que hoy adornan a esta Unidad no podrían entenderse sin la ilusión y el espíritu que supieron imprimirle sus fundadores, y que han mantenido cuantos os han precedido. Vuestro trabajo infatigable, en muchos casos heroico, en cumplimiento de vuestra misión específica de lucha contra el terrorismo y ejecución de operaciones que entrañan un gran riesgo, pone de manifiesto el verdadero alcance de vuestra firme voluntad de servicio a España.

Por todo ello, os expresamos nuestra gratitud que es la de toda la sociedad española, así como nuestro pleno apoyo a vuestra misión centrada en la lucha contra el terrorismo que conculca brutalmente nuestros derechos y libertades, y que merece nuestra total repulsa y condena.

En este marco, no queremos dejar de dedicar un emocionado homenaje de respeto y afecto a todas las víctimas de la barbarie terrorista y a sus familiares, a quienes hoy ofrecemos una vez más todo nuestro cariño y apoyo.

A la Guardia Civil y a esta Unidad quiero agradecer de manera especial el haberme brindado la oportunidad de amadrinar esta entrega de Bandera.

Permitidme que os aliente a continuar realizando vuestro trabajo con la misma ilusión, dedicación y eficacia que siempre habéis demostrado.
Que esta Bandera de España, que nos llena de profundo orgullo, os sirva de estímulo permanente en el cumplimiento de vuestra misión. Como Madrina me comprometo a guardar siempre un lugar privilegiado en mi corazón para esta Unidad y para la Bandera que tengo el honor de entregaros. Estoy segura de que la sabréis honrar con vuestro trabajo y sacrificio diarios al servicio de España y de los españoles.

After the ceremony and the parade, the Prince and Princess met with family members of Guardia Civil officers who had died in the line of duty. They also received more baby gifts, and then attended a reception with all 2000 invited guests.

A bit off topic, but I was wondering how do they fix the peineta on the top of the head? I mean, that’s a huge thing and it must weight a lot...

Could any of the Spanish girls satisfy my curiosity?

Not much of peinetas because never I have put no, but I believe that they are not very heavy, the good ones usually they are of sea turtle. In the low part they have a species of teeth that enlist in moño and later usually they put orquillas to hold it better.

Here you have a peineta (I not to be placed photos here, feel it)

Oh, I see. Then, after the ceremony, Letizia must have taken off the peineta very carefully, since her hair-do is still perfect at the reception.

Thanks for the clarification, Lula!

i have never wore one, but i have the strange sensation in must be quite heavy. the peineta is "held" with a hairdo like the one letizia had today, as it helps the stability. the mantilla has holes to put the peineta in and a little of it is left just above the head. (don't know if i explained myself well...)

queen sofia in felipe and letizia's wore the mantilla and peineta during the whole religious ceremony and all the lunch. that was 5 hours at the least with it... i really suffered for her... same for infanta elena
