I don't see that she was 'on top of her profession' though. At the time of the engagement, Letizia was co-anchoring the TVE evening news, together with her boss, Alfredo Urdaci. In this role, she had been for approx. 6 weeks. I have no doubt that she was qualified for this role, but at the time there were many rumours in Spain that Felipe had a hand in Letizia getting this job at exactly that time in order to make her face known in Spain. Most Spaniards had never seen her face or didnt know who she was when the relationship became public knowledge.

If people think that not ageeing that Letizia Ortiz was kind of a Spanish Christiane Amanpour at the time means putting her down of course they are free to do so.
Actually most of us had seen her face in TVE news. She was a new, young, familiar face, carving a niche in reporting journalism.

The rumour/gossip about Felipe helping her getting a job at TVE came after their marriage, and from the same political quarters. The same lobby group wanting the monarchy in Spain gone so the head of state can be "elected" by the politicians.

It's the same powerful lobby that thinks Letizia is a danger to Spain. They don't want an educated, critically thinking woman, without noble, aristocratic or royal connections as queen consort and mother (and influence) to Leonor.

Tough.

Letizia is the most amazing, most brilliant, most accomplished of all the CP's who ever lived. No one is more impressive. Her marriage is perfect. Her children are perfect. Her hair is perfect. So are her feet.

Is that better?

You folks should warn non Leti worshipping posters that this is a FAN CLUB and dissent is not allowed. It's only fair.

Good night!
Funny you are calling her Leti. It's what Princess Letizia is called in forums against her.

No need to be so antagonistic. The inquisition reaaaaally ended hundred of years ago.

Maybe on that occasion you can also provide the link where Queen Sofia acknowledged that being photographed with Inaki in Washington was a mistake (see post 280).

I find it funny that you tend to accuse posters who don't think that Letizia is the best thing on earth since sliced bread of gossiping or even having a political agenda while you continue to make claims about other royals without providing any source.

Obviously the future King Felipe VI is very popular, much more popular than his wife:

ABC is a monarchist newspaper so it´s logical that they can make-up the news a bit. But I would say this news is in line with what I´m hearing from relatives and friends and reading on the Internet lately.

Felipe is indeed more popular than his father and generally people is pleased that he´s taking over. The other main opinion is of course the people that disagree because they want a republic. But since most people I knew is neutral about that matter, the confidence on Felipe´s future role seems to be the general opinion.

It is clear the future queen is far less popular than her husband.

That seems to be true. One has to wonder why certain people are so happy about that situation.
