Hey. I've been away for a long time--I was actually in Madrid during the wedding--and just wanted to comment about people who wondered if Letizia didn't like visiting churches because some people claim she's not religious. Churches are a must see in any Spanish city or town--they are a major tourist attraction, so visting churches has nothing to do, necessarily, with religion or even PR.

In any case, I was in Madrid and people loved, loved, loved that before leaving for Jordan they took a few days and visited some small but beautiful Spanish towns.

I leave you an article with the latest news from the honeymoon (in spanish)

"El Confidencial Digital

Más detalles de la luna de miel de los Príncipes de Asturias: de Tailandia a Beijing pasando por la India

Ya contamos en El Confidencial Digital, en rigurosa exclusiva, que los Príncipes de Asturias han pasado parte de su luna de miel en una pequeña y paradisíaca isla de Tailandia. Ahora podemos añadir más detalles: han viajado a China, tras pasar por la India.

Felipe de Borbón y Letizia Ortiz se desplazaron este viernes, día 4 de junio, hasta Beijing (antigua Pekín) en el vuelo TG 614, de la compañía tailandesa Thai, que salió de Bangkok, en La India. Por cierto, que el despegue fue bastante movido.

El deseo de mantenerse en el máximo nivel de anonimato por parte de la pareja se vio roto por el comandante de la aeronave, que, en un español casi perfecto, aprendido en Salamanca, dio por los altavoces un “saludo especial” a los Príncipes de Asturias.

Los primeros sorprendidos fueron los propios aludidos, que no es esperaban algo así en un avión de bandera tailandesa. El comandante destacó en su parlamento el hecho de que, encontrándose en su luna de miel, hubieran tenido la amabilidad de escoger un avión de su compañía aérea.

Tanto Felipe de Borbón como Letizia Ortiz no sabían qué cara poner, tras verse descubiertos por el piloto. Y los dos escoltas, que les acompañan en este viaje, se miraban incrédulos y se les notaba inquietos por lo que estaba pasando.

No acabó ahí la cosa. El comandante salió de la cabina para saludar a los ilustres pasajeros, que tuvieron que acceder a hacerse una fotografía con él como recuerdo. El Príncipe y su esposa se mostraron, por supuesto, corteses y amables.

Los recién casados, que lucen un magnífico color de piel, tras el paso por las escondidas playas de la isla tailandesa, tras tomar tierra, se perdieron por las calles de la capital de China para continuar en aquél país su discreta luna de miel. (7-06-2004)"

Well, i just made a resume in english of the previous article :flower: So, these are the latest news from their honeymoon :P After speading some relaxing days in the beautiful island of Koh Muk in thailand, Felipe and Letizia visited India and now they are in China. They were discovered in the TG 614 fligth from Thai to Beijin. they tried to stay anominous but the pilot, in spanish, gave a special welcome to the Princes of Asturias in the plane comunicator (the pilot said that he gave this welcome for the kindness of the princes of choosing Thai to travel in their honeymoon). Felipe and Letizia stayed very surprised (has their bodyguards). The pilot also left the cabine and went salute the royal couple and asked them to take a pic. he said that Felipe and Letizia were very kind and gentle. Also seems that the royal couple is showing a wonderful sky colour after their stop in India B)

It was obnoxious for the pilot to blow their cover. He could have gotten a picture with them on their way out the door and said privately, "Congratulations." I think a honeymoon should be totally private. The rest of their lives won't be.

People from different culture had different ways of showing gratitude. We don't know about Thai's culture. Maybe if the pilot had kept quiet, he felt that he hadn't shown the gratitude and courtesy to the couple.

I don't know if anyone saw the photo of them in Petra that was printed in the NYPost. You could clearly see that Felipe is a man of substantial "assets." I know he's 6'5" , but it truly was astounding.

Thanks for the pics...

I find Letizia with beautiful smile (good teeth :P ) and beautiful eyes too....

I like her face and the personality she projects..

All in all, i like this couple...Felipe made a good choice: A beautiful highly educated respectful Spanish wife that has great potentials to be a good queen....and besides they LOVE each other

I am glad he is not with Eva: cheap look....

Glad to know I'm not the only one whose mind is in the gutter! I didn't see a NY Post photo, but I did make a similar observation in one of those Petra photos.

Yeah, I like her too. I know some people prefer the sweet, mild mannered sweetly pretty type, but I'm glad Felipe married a woman of strength, courage and intelligence, with charisma and a strong work ethic (even her detractors acknowledge all these attributes). He found not just a wife that looks good on his arm, but a full partner in every sense of the word. And frankly, that makes me think better of him. It takes a strong and confident man to love and marry a strong and confident woman.

And then, they do make such a gorgeous couple. So much so that I think they each gain charisma from the other. Is that crazy?

Do you have an on line link to your photo? I mean it wasn&#39;t even like his pants were so tight--it just must have been thin material or something--but you know, I think I need to see it again, just to be sure. . . . Oh, I just looked at the page before this--I think those photos have been edited somewhat&#33; :))
