I saw a picture long time ago of King Juan Carlos drinking wine from a huge wine container at a regata celebration (a very cool picture), thus I don't think it's a protocol that the royals can't drink alcohols in public.

Germany surrendered to Letizia's fan and to the "Spanish fury"

All the German newspapers emphasize the presence of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia at the honour tribune, the heat they had to fight against, in the warmest day of the year in Germany, and the commentaries exchanged between the Prince of Asturias and the kaiser Franz Beckenbauer. Besides, they also comment on the happiness face of Doña Letizia, her "peculiarly Spanish" way of fanning and the spontaneity how the princes jumped of their seats, whenever Spain got to score.



http://www.informativos.telecinco.es...a/dn_26956.htm

The game was attended in the Leipzig stadium, by the Princes of Asturias, who travelled this morning to Germany, to attend the debut of Spain in the World Championship.

Don Juan Carlos could only see the second half of the game, after arriving in Madrid, coming from Murcia, where he visited this morning Culvert. The King, who watched the game on television in La Zarzuela, "is enchanted with the Spanish victory, and has enjoyed the game very much", said a spokesman of Casa Real. The same spokesman has also informed that Doña Sofía watched the game in Bangkok, and that she has also lived the victory "with great joy".



http://actualidad.tiscali.es/articul...content=488148

Don Felipe and Doña Letizia (who took a t-shirt in the colour of the Spanish equipment underneath her jacket and a fan to face the enormous heat that was felt in Leipzig) vibrated with the game and, for several moments, they were frightened by the Ukrainian attacks, although in the end they were cheerful with the triumph of the Spanish team, being congratulated for that matter.



http://www.elconfidencial.com/notici...4/06/2006&pass=

The princes vibrated with the game and suffered with the best attack of Ukraine, which almost ended in goal. Don Felipe shook the hand after that, in sign of relief.
The Princes of Asturias were not immune to the heat that was felt today in Leipzig and shared one beer, during the second half of the game. Doña Letizia (who enjoyed the affection of the Spanish applauders, who even requested the princess to "hurl”, when Spain scored 3-0) had always had a fan in her hands, to fight against the high temperatures.

Absurd is exactly right. Do we live in Victorian England or something?

They looked to have had a great time and Spain played some beautiful soccer.

Ever since queen Sofía drank milk of the bottle directly, I don't believe that the princes did deserves commentaries. You confuse a custom of the SRF, initiated by the queen, because it seemed to him few elegant to appear in the photos eating and drinking, with the protocol, that nothing says on which the princes in a soccer match must drink or eat.

I think that you have given too much importance him, they don't get drunk. :)

It has had to of being terrible the heat. More than 30 degrees and an hour where the sun does not have piety. There is no the one who understands how football matches can be played at this hour in June.

In television they did a video only speaking about it. The Prince without jacket, the football players drinking it waters down non-stop, the umpire having a shower with a bottle of water, a cameraman throwing water to his face...The graceful thing is that they had said to the journalists that it could rain ... and of it waters down at all, the splendid sun. The Spanish still are a bit accustomed (really not because in summer the games are played later to avoid the heat), but the Ukrainian ones must have passed it fatally.

I have read a lot of ridiculous things about Letizia here at this forum and in the tabloids, but this has got to win the award for the most ridiculous discussion.

Now the woman can't drink beer??? It's one thing to critique what she wears orhow she wears her hair but now it's within the public domain to critique what she drinks???

The Spanish people may financially support the royal family through their tax dollars but I don't think they are able to decide what the Princess drinks. Will you next say when she can go to the bathroom?

Many people drink in public, including royals. Prince Charles has attended several pubs in England as part of his official engagements and he is properly photographed having a pint. Prince Amedeo of Belgium was just photographed in a formal session with a group of friends in London having a pint.

They are royals but they are human beings first. It's not as if Letizia was doing some illegal act like taking drugs or mooning the audience.

I don't think young people are as naive. Many have seen their parents or family friends having a beer. Having an occasional drink does not make you a bad example. In more than two years this is the first time we have seen Letizia have a beer. No one would think she has an alcohol problem because she was at a soccer game having one beer. If anyone thinks she has an alcohol problem it is more likely from all the champagne she is seen toasting with at state banquets. How many times have we seen her with a glass of champagne?

Why is having a drink not normal? I bet that there were more people in that stadium drinking beer than not. If Letizia didn't drink beer then she'd be the unnormal one ... So no, I don't understand.

Where can I find this protocol exactly? I'm very curious to see where it says that royals are not allowed to drink beer. This forum asks for factual statements to back up comments, please show me the Spanish or general royal rules book where it says "Do not drink beer. You will be a terrible example to the world if you drink beer."

Again I ask, why is the behaviour not "good" behaviour? How is she no longer an example because she had one cup of beer at a soccer match? So all the past two and a half years of hard work and daily activities goes out the window because she had one beer?

And P.S.: How do you know it was beer for sure? Did you smell her cup? Did you take a sip of it? Or does your computer screen have smell- or taste-o-vision that my computer screen does not so you know for 100% that it's beer? What if it was iced tea? What if it was gingerale? What if it was a special German drink?

I just don't get this line of discussion. Or why certain people are so insistent that having a drink is so wrong.

How have they defied their place by going to a soccer game watched the world over to support their home team, and are enjoying themselves by having a beer?

Plus consider if it would be better if they just went home each night and drank lots of beers behind closed doors? Would that be better? Because then nobody would know that they dared to defy the royal protocol by having a beer.

What's so bad about beer anyways? It's alcohol the same as champagne and wine, and we have seen many pictures of royals from all countries drink those. So why pick on the Letizia for having one beer?

How cute! I am watching a retransmission of the game on Univision and they just showed Felipe and Letizia. She's leaning against him and fanning them both and they are all smiles and having a good time. Very cute.

How funny! I'm reading an american blog on the soccer games today and the guy writes "By the way: who knew Spain had such a hot princess?"

whether Letizia was drinking beer or fruit juice isn't important as far as I know attending this match isn't an official act.
BTW,don't you think that it would be better if the princes ''esp. Felipe" dressed in more casual form?

wow, we're fast! just a day later and already a lot of news. :)

anyways, i watched a couple of moves of the Spanish team during the game and judging from what i've seen, they were really superb over the Ukranians. The Ukrainians missed a lot of good opportunities to score, and the Spanish team made use of these to their advantage.

glad to see the Princes cheering their team too! they all must be on a high with that win.

congrats to the Spanish team! Viva la Seleccion Española!

What happens ? Cataplum of cataplum , a woman who is becoming " royal" in 2004 didn't forget her plebeyan origin and drink a beer! - beurk!- Happylly the appearences are salving because it's her husband who gave it !

I'm totaly deasapointed to know that the Princes of Asturia can drink a so popular breuvage than beer; I don't understand why they didn't drink Champaign ? Or may be they are doing a publicity for trademark : "it's look like beer, it has the same color but it's not beer !" or " it's look like ginger ale, it has the same color of ginger ale but it's not ginger ale ! "........So ridiculous....

I'm totaly sure that all the admirators of the Princess of Asturias can have in his pic's collection a shot of the Princess with a Champaign 's glass on her hand to bring a toast in officiel gala dinner ! What does mean ? The Kings or Princes can't drink only champaign ( more higher in alchool!! !) I repeat What a ridiculous discussion !

Yesterday night, I wasn't at home and I read just now all this thread. I have to said that I can't understand this kind of stupid discussion.

Spain have crown heire princess who like football, it's fantastic ( for me I don't like it and I don't know how I could be react if I had to attend for all a match of football.... No comment! )

With her husband she had shared and been stirred for all the major moments of the match, with her husband she had shared a glass of beer ! What is the trubble ?

Can you imagine the criticism if Letizia didn't like football and if she had stay in her seat whithout looking at the match ?

I'm quite sure, as I can read above that if it was Maxima who did it, nobody say nothing....


Really, the criticism will never stop.....

Ewww, scary arm!

I think it's good that she drinks beer, there are lots of calories in beer and she really needs them.

I which people would stop critisising Letizia's figure. yes she's thin so what! It's not like she doesn't eat. Her family on many occasions have said that the princess eats a lot but simply doesn't but on any weight. She just simply has a fast metabolism. I happen to know from own experiences that it's quite annoying for people to think you don't eat just because you're skinny. Just leave it alone!
