Daddy's girl look like him, indeed.
Talk about twins very alike indeed. Duncan thank you so much for translating - I was very curious about what was said during the presentation. I have thought a lot about the comments regarding Felipe and Letizia and people arguing that Letizia should have her own agenda. I see very much Felipe and Letizia as a couple, and it is my favourite thing about them that you see both of them together at events so often. I think they complement each other very well. I´ve always wondered if the SRF have hesitated to give Letizia her own agenda as she was so well known to the Spanish people as a journalist, that had she had her own agenda from the beginning people may have continued to think of her as Letizia the journalist rather than Letizia future queen of Spain. And Letizia herself may have needed time to adjust to being a princess of Spain rather than a journalist. Thus Duncan, if you are already seeing Letizia as future head of state, then I think the SRF have done an excellent job!

Whatever the case, it'a very good and not biaised analysis.

I`ve done this avatar in photoshop, sorry that I`ve confused you

Am I the only one who seeing Letizia during the presentation remembered Letizia during Leonor`s baptism? Her outfit, her hair, the tiny baby girl in the arms and of course the brode happy smile - quite similar.

Do you, or anyone, know why King Juan Carlos never wears a wedding ring? He's always wearing that pinky ring, but never his wedding band !

Beautiful family, loved the official pictures.

To me, this baby is more Letizia than Borbon, I think she will look like Leti a lot :) !

Me too! Letizia on Sofia's presentation reminded me Letizia on Leonor's baptism. In these two ocasions she looked very happy, with large smiles on her face.

Two, since their public life mainly consists in promoting themselves, I wonder why they have been avoiding showing Leonor in the open as they did yesterday, even giving rise to false rumors about the girl's health. Finally she has proven to be their best asset.
Thanks Duncan for the translation. You are entitled to your opinions.

On the other hand, most people, whether royalty or not usually want to have apositive image in public so promoting themselves is not unusual. Maybe they felt Leonor was too young to be subjected to the media, hence it was only recently that she has been seen more freqeuntky,

Leonor is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I actuall hope Felipe and Letizia don't have more babies, coz I want Leo to be queen so bad. She will make history for sure.

That is commedable. Husbands should be able to take care of their children as well as their wives.

I don't think they will have anymore children but that doesn't matter becaus they have two healthy and loveable children.
