Well as long you don't think she is abusive like some people suggested (not here), you can have the opinion that she is a overhelming mother hen.
Imo in the last outings the girls were very relaxed and confident, Letizia was less observant. Unlike in Sweden or Denmark, the Spanish press is much more aggressiv, so I do think Letizia wanted to protect and slowly settle them into the public eye.

I hope you didn't think I was suggesting she was abusive. I don't feel that in the least. Just very controlling, perhaps, and probably a bit of perfectionism.

Oh god, no! I only had some awful people in mind, sorry
I wouldn't worry too much, the moment they are teenagers, the game changes not in favor of the parents

Felipe is definitely more relaxed.
I find the Queen just being reassuring and guiding toward the girls. With the cameras clicking and people trying to get their attention having mom with her hand on your shoulder and guiding you along must feel very safe. Letizia takes care of that so the King can be free from worrying about it. The girls are very well behaved in public but my guess is that behind the scenes they are just regular girls and a handful for the parents.

Madrid (AFP) - Spanish authorities Monday moved to fine FC Barcelona 66,000 euros ($67,000) and Athletic Bilbao 18,000 euros over last season's Cup final where fans of the Catalan and Basque sides whistled Spain's King Felipe VI.

The state Higher Sports Council proposed the sanctions for "behaviour whose aim was to transform the sporting event into a stage for political demands through intolerant acts".

These included "whistling the national anthem and His Majesty the King", patron of the cup, the council said in a statement.

FC Barcelona president speaks out on UEFA fine for Catalan flag issue - The Washington Post

FC Barcelona will go against this fine, defending the freedom of speech.

No matter the outcome, I guess at the next copa del rey they'll whistle even louder and bring more flags.

Oh my! I almost choaked on my lunch laughing at that one DOM!

I think that #3 should be #1! King Felipe is HOT, especially with the beard. And Obama should NOT be on this list, HOT he is not. I will say that I had no idea there were so many nice looking heads of state though.

I agree about President Obama. There certainly are quite a few excellent looking individuals who govern countries. I think the order is a bit off, but we all have our own tastes. Silly lists like this always makes me laugh.

They went to see Mission Impossible Rogue Nation. Great film! I don't like Tom Cruise but if there's one thing he's really good at it's Ethan Hunt

I don't know who put this list together but it must have been a man. No women would ever have chosen some of those guys and certainly not in that order. Besides, President Obama should absolutely be on the list.
