This stamp isn't as nice as the one that was released to comemmorate Frederik and Mary's wedding. Why didn't the Spanish couple do a photo shoot for the stamp as it seems Frederik and Mary did? The picture on this stamp is from their first official public appearance together right before the official engagement press conference it seems.

If they want a picture from their first public apperance together, they could have chosen a more formal shot. This one looks informal- the 'paparazzi' type

That is a little bit of a weird photo--it doesn't show any connection between them.

The stamps for Felipe and Letizia aren&#39;t as bad as the stamps for Willem-Alexander and Maxima.

The design for the Dutch stamps weren&#39;t very nice, with the grainy, pixelated images of the couple seperately then the colours of the Netherlands around it, but I think the pictures themselves were much better than the ones of the Spanish couple. I believe that the pictures from the Dutch stamps were the pre-wedding pictures, and they were very well done.

nouwrein made a really good comment when she said the picture on the Spanish stamp looks a bit like a &#39;paparazzi&#39; shot. If an image from the pre-engagement announcement had to be used for the stamps, I&#39;m positive that there was a better one that could&#39;ve been used with say Felpe and Letizia looking in the same decision and not looking so haphazardly "posed."

I couldn&#39;t say it better myself. Were postage stamps released for Phillipe and Mathilde?

I think that this look is one of the best we&#39;ve seen from Letizia for a while...she looks great. Sometimes I think she looks really washed out, but not in these pictures.

Felipe smiles&#33; My goodness&#33; And Letizia is wearing color--which matched his tie--how cute&#33; Not sure what was up with her hair cut though.

You can really see how much taller Felipe is than Letizia in that last picture. Even with high heels on, she is very petite in comparison. I think she&#39;ll be a beautiful bride.

So that would make him about six feet two, then? (I&#39;m very poor at metric conversions ). I would guess Letizia is about five-one or two at the most, judging by these pictures.

I thought Letizia was about 1.68.
She is (even with high heels on) not even taller than Queen Sofia. Who is I think 1.72 or something like that.

For us Americans, this is actually almost 6 ft 5in...I had to look up the conversion online, because I&#39;m terrible at going between the two. Letizia would then be around 5 ft 5 in, or almost a foot shorter than Felipe&#33;&#33;&#33; That&#39;s a crazy big difference&#33;&#33;&#33;
