Accurate, I think

I found most (if not all) of their articles absolutely useless, but fortunately they have superb photos that make the visit worthy

The article is bla bla and picks up on all the stereotypes that have been going around about Letizia for a long time (yes, she is thin, strong minded, we already knew that).
There are various mistakes in it, Letizia only met Felipe in the autumn of 2002 and not earlier, the oil ship sank in Galicia and not in Asturias.
Her family didn't know about Felipe until the engangement therefore she certainly did not travel with him to Asturias to have secret dates at her grandparent's house.
Finally, the author had to somehow include Kate Middleton to get the american audience interested in the Spanish Queen.

I am not surprised at all when someone writes an article about a British or non-British royal, they always mention Catherine.

Maybe there should be a thread named: *The Daily Mail* , where all their mistakes could be listed and pointed out to them. I think we could do a much better job of reporting then they do any day of the week. We could go after them and report on their mistakes, like turning the tables on them,

¿Ha modernizado Letizia su papel como Reina consorte? | Lifestyle | EL MUNDO

Interesting article on Letizia in el Mundo, two female journalists have a discussion about Letizia as Queen. I find it very objective, they basically repeat what has been identified as weakness of Letizia, that she is not very popular but perceived as distant, cold and nervous, obsessed with her image and appearance that has become more and more unnatural. On the other hand the public focuses exactly on appearance, frivolous things like clothes.

It is also stressed that her role is limited because the institution is archaic and sexist, the kings are willing to make changes but these are difficult to make. Letizia has been more relaxed now that the in-laws are gone but has to win over people's hearts, eg by smiling more, coming across as more approachable and natural, focussing more on her work and less on her appearance, eg becoming a face for a serious cause, like Diana for the landmines campaign.

Since we can't get that addition here in America, what is the theme of article. Pro or Con? Just opinions or actual quotes from named personnel? Is it a good read? Thank you.

Well some might not have a problem and some royal watchers would have a problem as royals tend not to wear such short outfits.

I was wondering if the Daily Mail has fallen out of love with Letizia and why do they also always refer to her as the Monarch when she's not!

The Daily Mail is not a bastion of journalism research and ethics, they always make big mistakes when writing about Letizia, I'm sure they make up most of their texts on her articles. They are the best example of clickbait, they don't care about Letizia or facts, just clicks. This article is the best example, they base their "concerns" on one article on a Danish site, and then their experts decide her clothes are fine, and still their headline is incredibly polemic to get clicks

The absence of Queen Letizia at the Memorial Mass for the Duke of Medinaceli.

It must be a slow week for royal news in Spain.

el mundo reports on letizia's appearance at the princess of asturias awards

Letizia enseña otra vez los brazos y presume de escote | loc | EL MUNDO

they cover that she is breaking the mold by showing more 'flesh' than a queen would be expected to do, but that she is proving that the critiques do not affect her. they also mention that she has been 'to the surgeon' several times. they specifically mention that her breasts look great, even after 2 births. the author mentions that she had a breast operation prior to being engaged to felipe, but that she 'retouched' them after the births. the author concludes that she has 'a magnificent scalpel' (implying that her surgeon is good) as she is 'well-operated'.
