The Prince and the Princess of Asturias IN Asturias (2003-2004)

Nice pictures agm.

Is it just me, or does Letizia look much thinner than the previous couple of engagements she's made with the royal family?

I noticed it first in the shopping pictures, especially the Dec 19th, 2003 - 4:50 pm one agm posted.

But in these last two with her grandparents, it is just as noticeable.

Great pics, agm and Alexandria.

Is it just me or does Letizia look a little wistful in the last photograph with her grandparents?

I do agree that she looks thinner than before.

I just saw sone images on tv from Asturias. Felipe arrived at 11:30pm and left about 5 hours later with Letizia to Madrid. After let the press made some pics, they all enter in the house to lunch. Later Felipe and Letizia went for a walk in the village, where she showed Felipe some places where she used to play in her childhood. Letizia was very sweet with her granfather. She gave him alot of atention :flower:

Felipe and Letizia leaving Asturias

The most famous autograph "hunter" from Spain, the asturian Ander Azcárate, was in Sardéu to try catch one from Letizia. When the couple was leaving, he called several times for Letizia "Letizia, a photo, a photo!", saying that he had already one wih her parents and with the late Countess of Barcelona, Felipe's grandmother. He was lucky :P Felipe called him and took a pic with Ander and Letizia and another when Letizia was signing the famous autographs book of Ander :flower:

I truly enjoy seeing this couple. I think this is the best royal match-up I've seen in years. They look good together, they seem to suit each other well. I wish them all the happiness in the world.

Family visit for royal lovebirds

22 DECEMBER 2003
Newly-engaged Crown Prince Felipe of Spain made a homely pre-Christmas visit over the weekend, to stay with his fiancée Letizia's grandparents at their village home in Asturias.

The future king and queen were photographed with Jose Luis Ortiz - just out of hospital after suffering lung problems - and his wife Menchu, who, like her granddaughter, used to be a journalist. It was Letizia’s first chance to the region in northern Spain since her surprise engagement to Felipe, who holds the title Prince of Asturias, in November.

Security was tight for the visit, with royal and civil special forces on guard outside the house in the village of Sardéu to keep well-wishers and journalists at bay. However, the popular prince and his bride-to-be decided to emerge for a photo call, and Letizia’s grandparents were more than happy to join them for the informal family shots.

While newscaster Letizia seemed preoccupied at moments with getting everyone properly lined up for the photos, the prince, who'd driven himself up to Asturias, was his usual smiling and relaxed self and kept an arm protectively round his future bride throughout.

There will be lots of photos come Friday. The newpaper ABC claims that on Friday, the Prince's birthday, Felipe and Letizia will be making a "private" visit to the basilica of Covadonga. If that's true it will be a swarm of photographers. For those that don't know, Covadonga is the "spiritual" seat of Asturias, and Asturias is, if not the "spiritual" seat, the historical seat of Spain itself. The Virgin of Covadonga is considered the protetoress of Asturias. So, if they do go I expect lots of media will be in attendance.

I just love the outfit she wore out to dinner. Very chic.

And here are a couple more great shots from erlier in the day.

This one's my favorite; Felipe's expression is priceless:

CARIÑO DE ABUELA | La abuela paterna de Letizia Ortiz, Menchu Álvarez del Valle, abraza al Príncipe Felipe a la llegada de la pareja al núcleo rural de Sardeu. Con los abuelos han pasado ambos la jornada y han almorzado, en la casa que aquéllos tienen en la zona alta del concejo de Ribadesella, en el oriente de Asturias.

The grandparents whom Felipe and Letizia visited soon after their engagement and on this trip to Covadonga, Spain, are they Letizia's paternal or maternal grandparents? And are her other grandparents still living? They seem to spend a lot of time with these grandparents and not too much with the others -- or at least if they are still living, the couple have not been pictured with them.
