Yes, I think that the work of the Princes in these hearings is important and interesting. They receive in a single day for many people, is an exhausting schedule, and the people is very satisfied with the meetings with them. In addition, they have received people of different social and economic sectors, persons of different ages, persons with different problems ... it is a varied enough vision of the Asturian society. For example, representatives of the Asturian mining, a sector with problems, political, social and historically has been an active sector, which has staged strikes, revolutions ... And therefore ideologically does not seem likely to be very close to the idea of monarchy, have been supported and understood by the Princes and have appreciated the knowledge that they had of their problems.

I do hope tomorrow is the day Letizia will pull off a proper outfit incl hairstyling.

It is too bad you put too much emphasis on Princess Letizia's appearance aand outfits. I am sure there are others who think the important thing is her sincere manner she interacts with people, especially her countrymen. I think the whole of the SRF are known for their rapport with the people, not their fashion sense. I sure hope Letizia's legacy is not that of being a fashion icon.
OK we've been here before; my view is that I cannot really judge Letizia's work because there is not much she does on her own; others might disagree but this is my opinion. I hope though when time passes Letizia will be able to establish her own profile and be recognized for her work; besides looking at her clothing I wouldn't worry about a possible legacy for her as a fashion icon.

You are 100% right chuchu, I agree. Is Diana remembered for her style, clothes, hair and jewlery? NO!.

The ENTIRE WORLD remembers her for her humanity and the kind of person she was. Anyways, we do live in a shallow world.
There is a reason why Diana Princess of Wales is not (only) remembered for her style etc but for her work - she had countless patronages and a very substantial agenda of her own; therefore she became one of the most (if not the most) charismatic crown princesses in the world. With all due respect but your above mentioned comparison is one of the most far fetched ones I have ever seen.

i was at the concert! well, at the gates, that is :) i had the opportunity to be in oviedo this last 3 days because of other reasons and as i couldn´t be there to see them arrive i decided at 9.20pm to visit the gates of the auditorium as i imagined that would be approximately the time they were going to leave, as concerts last for an hour plus the after-concert greetings. i was lucky enough (after waiting for 30 min, though) to see them coming out and even shake both letizia´s and felipe´s hands. at first it looked like they were going to leave straight away and waved at us (i was more than happy to have seen them, though, i thought i wouldn´t!), but felipe told letizia (while she was telling the crowds something like "we got to leave!") to say hi to a few of us and then felipe joined her as she continued shaking hands with the rest of the line. fortunately they managed to shake hands with about 20 m of line and i was lucky to be in the right place. and yes, the jacket was just gorgeous! i was mentally wowed when i saw them coming out, it did look great! they didn´t speak to us much and just thanked us for being there, but were quite rushing, i assume, and didn´t stop for much longer than 5 minutes.

wow, I really like that jacket, it's beautiful. But when I saw the rest...OH MY GOD!!! what is she wearing in her feet? I think I am confused because I think I saw pep-toes shoes??? with black stocking? no no, this can't be.

A little comment will be that I think she will be better with gold earrings, but that's just an oppinion, anyway she seems better than last times.

The jacket reminds me of the jacket the men wear when bullfighting for some reason. It is not Letizia style at all, also looks big on her. She doesnt seem her self in it imho. She looks lovely & the pictures of her & Felipe are lovely.
Pictures of Letizia with the children are adorable.

Lula,today's event will it be a lunch or just a meeting?

Thanks for the link lula. In previous years I recall that there was always the Recepción oficial a los presidentes de los Jurados de los Premios Príncipe de Asturias, where Letizia wore something red, as tradition, at least when she participated.

Am I wrong? Just wondering why it did not happen this year. THX

Thanks all for the pics!
Today Letizia looks nice an a bit tired, of course after the past busy days. The suit is elegant.
I agree with dazzling and Duke of Marmalade, she would have looked nicer with more colour or maybe with a white shirt under the jacket.
I didn't like very much the jacket she wore yesterday, I can't deny it was beautiful but it reminds to me a Russian ( or some other eastern European ) old soldier.
As far as regards the peep toe shoes with stockings, I think they were horrible, really ugly and unelegant, ....... once again.

According to King Konstantin of Greece, Letizia speaks "Spanglish", i.e. English with a distinct Spanish influence. But I'm sure she can make herself understood, even if her English is not gramatically correct.
