I love the skirt and shoes...not too crazy about the jacket but it's not too bad... Last time she wore a skirt the length was wrong for her legs but this skirt length is just fine...

She looks a little tired...You can see she's got circles under her eyes in the close-up.

The pic of Felipe and Letizia in the city Hall of Madrid from the Royal House website

Casareal
Su Alteza Real el Príncipe recibió la medalla de honor de Madrid, una distinción concedida con la unanimidad de todos los grupos políticos de la Corporación en reconocimiento a su contribución "a la defensa de los valores constitucionales, democráticos y sociales". Don Felipe acompañado por su prometida, Doña Letizia Ortiz, recibió la medalla de manos del Alcalde de la capital, Alberto Ruiz Gallardón, en un acto solemne celebrado en el Salón de Plenos de la Casa de la Villa, en presencia de los concejales y diversas autoridades de Madrid. Su Alteza Real el Príncipe tras recibir la máxima distinción de Madrid, expresó su satisfacción y su orgullo de la "ciudadanía a la que pertenezco", y elogió a esta ciudad que "ha sabido ser la capital abierta de una Nación que encuentra en ella el espacio necesario para hacerse escuchar". Como vecino de Madrid, don Felipe expresó su deseo de "defender y promover el modelo de convivencia que en esta ciudad ejercitan sus gentes" y aludió en repetidas veces la tragedia del 11 de marzo, ante la cual, afirmó que "el mundo entero pudo comprobar la valía de un pueblo que no se abandonó a la desesperada" y supo "plantarle cara al terror".
(Ayuntamiento de Madrid, 10 de mayo de 2004)

Am I the only one who is surprised by how happy Felipe and Letizia seems while visiting the school of the children to the victims?

Maybe it's because they wanted to cheer up the children???

I thought it looked a little inappropriate...

Yes, I noticed that. And that was a strange expression on his face in that first photo. They greeted the crowd rather happily. Maybe it was to cheer them up. But they looked appropiately serious in the third photo.

Well, I suppose they were reacting to the crowd's reaction. If the crowd is yelling and cheering them on then it would look odd for them to have solemn faces. On the other hand if the people are all mourning and crying like they would have been at the funeral then it would be appropriate to be solemn.

letizia and peñafiel, face to face

the other day, the day they went to hear the simphonie by nacho cano, peñafiel and letizia saw their faces for the first time. letizia talked to him, because, apparently, she had misunderstood an article by jaime. she told him to phone to the royal house to contrast information, phrase to which peñafiel said that it's imposible to contrast all the information in these words: 'i won't phone to the royal house just to know how tall are your shoes'. she asked him if he saw her sad, because apparently he had wrote something like that comparing her with victoria eugenia de wattemberg, who was one of spain's 'saddest' princesses. however, all these words were said with complicity.
maybe they can one day become good friends....

Definitly was a reaction to the crowd. I saw images on tv and people were totaly crazy, calling their names, cheering them, waiting for give some gifts to them (flowers, candies, ect), to ask for an authograph. Of course that they smile and went salute the public The joke of the day was that they needed to leave the station because was too much people there and the trains traffic needed to start :P. Even an american gospel group that is in Spain went to the station to dedicate a song to the royal couple (the were on of the station stairs and when Felipe and Letizia passed by they started to sing), was realy a cute moment :flower: .

I don't know if I would like people just reaching out through the crowd and touching me the way this woman here is touching Letizia's cheek. I know she/they probably mean well, but some personal space would be appreciated ... (I guess this is among the many reasons why I could not be a princess! )

Tweed jackets with the frayed edges or grosgrain ribbon is very popular right now. I don't remember Pia's jacket at Maud Angelica's christening, but it is not surprising that Letizia has this jacket now. Everyone is wearing them these days!

apparently it was more than i thought. and apparently not a very elegant attitude from letizia.........


(about yesterday's post) peñafiel and letizia, face to face

translation at freetranslation.com


Letizia reprende en público a un conocido columnista real

El reclamo se produjo durante un cóctel en honor del príncipe Felipe. Entredichos.

El periodista Jaime Peñafiel, en su columna del diario “El Mundo” habló de la altura de la futura reina y dijo que debe esforzarse por controlar su carácter.


MADRID.- “Mírame a los ojos, tú crees que estoy triste”, le dijo en forma tajante Letizia de Ortiz al conocido cronista real Jaime Peñafiel, durante el cóctel en honor del Príncipe de Asturias y su prometida luego de que le entregaron la Medalla de Honor de la Capital en el Ayuntamiento de Madrid. El motivo: una columna de Peñafiel en “El Mundo”, en la que habría conminado a la que un día será reina de España a “sonreír, sonreír y sonreír y a esforzarse por controlar su carácter”.
“Esfuérzate, Letizia -habría escrito Peñafiel-, no sólo para controlar tu carácter, sino para que no se produzca en ti esa terrible dualidad que posees: una sonrisa expansiva y espontánea, por un lado, como gélida es la expresión cuando se produce la repentina desaparición de esta sonrisa, por otro”.

Tensa conversación
“Yo no he dicho nunca que estés triste”, afirmó Peñafiel en su tensa conversación con la futura princesa de Asturias, a quien, acto seguido, recitó unos versos de Gutierre de Cetina: “Ojos claros, dulces y serenos, ya que miráis, no me miréis airados”. La reacción de Letizia fue inmediata: “yo no estoy airada”, enfatizó. “Pero estás enfadada”, puntualizó Peñafiel. “No estoy enfadada”, replicó ella. “Pero me estás regañando”, contestó él. No obstante, la cosa no quedó ahí, porque la prometida del príncipe tampoco tuvo pelos en la lengua a la hora de reprochar a su “azote mediático” un comentario en su columna sobre la diferencia de estatura entre ella y el que será su esposo. “Dicen que mides 1,68 y que, por culpa de esta estatura, te verás obligada, toda tu vida o mientras dure tu matrimonio, a llevar zapatos con tacones de ocho centímetros para arriba. Incluso de 15, por aquello de intentar acortar la descompensada estatura que te separa de los 1,97 de tu prometido”, había escrito Peñafiel. “Eso no es cierto”, le replicó Letizia, al tiempo que levantaba la pierna para mostrarle los tacones que llevaba en ese momento.

Otro dardo
La novia del príncipe, haciendo gala de su condición de ex periodista, lanzó otro dardo al columnista: “deberías llamar a la Casa Real para confirmar la información”, le dijo. La reprimenda de Letizia llamó la atención en España, porque se sale del protocolo habitual que no hace comentarios sobre lo publicado por la prensa.
Por su parte Peñafiel escribió en “El Mundo”, luego del entredicho: “lo peor que le puede ocurrir a un periodista es que se interpreten mal sus comentarios. O que, a pesar de su buena fe, no acierte con lo que dice”. (Dpa y Especial)

I like the rear-view shot of how Letizia's hair is pulled back into a ponytail. She looks a little strained and nervous, though under the cirucumstances I guess that is to be expected. Also I'm sure she has a lot to think about with the wedding preparations.
