I mean there´s tons of things to organise that do not appeared in photos and a significant amount of work for other people. That´s why they inform of these issues,

It´s as plain and simple as this: if they would have informed about the schedule surgery (the British Royal Household gave information about Chamilla having an hysterectomy, for instance) everyone would know she´s in hospital and they would understand her not appearing visiting the victims yesterday or visiting the victims yesterday with very heavy make up. It´s simply that. But there was no statement UNTIL rumours went wild, why so much secrecy?

It´s easy to understand that if you cannot go to work and you say you are sick, you are sick. What´s the problem?
Like I said before, the Jordanian house hadn't said when exactly Rania broke her leg, I only knew that when she showed up at an engagement. It's perfectly understandable that the SRF didn't announce Letizia's procedure yesterday right before her visit to the hospitals, it would be unrespectful for the victims and their families since her procedure might turn out to be the talk, not the visit, the victims or their families (I know how pathetic some of the TV shows are in Spain).
Letizia did go to visit the victims yesterday. The procedure had been done for a week, she looked well enough to do the act. If she didn't, the SRF probably would have given the explanation yesterday. I didn't notice at all her makeup was heavy, her mother-in-law also wore makeups. Except for a few talks on the internet, I didn't see any rumors in the media until the announcement, otherwise it would have been lots of press articles on her possible surgery.

I'm shocked by the pitiful comments of some pitiful people. She's dishonest, she's vain, she this, she's that. If they don't like her, well that's fine but they will use any excuse to insult her no matter what she does; that just show the kind of people THEY are.

Years ago, I had to go through surgery for the same reasons, a deviated septum, and the doctor who was a friend of mine (so I know he wasn't lying), said that most people get their noses re-touched in that operation. It doesn't add that much to the bill and it doesn't take long. I didn't change my nose, but when I look back, sometimes I wish I had. So what if she did!

I'm inclined to believe that the surgery was primarily for the exact reasons that the SRF offered. Letizia's always struck me as a confident woman, and I'd be surprised if a woman with as happy a home life as she seems to have would worry too much about something like the shape of her nose.

That said, it does look like the surgery had an effect on the way her nose looks. I just doubt that was the most important reason for the operation.

I don't see any problem with her nose job. To be honest, I think the new nose looks just Perfect. Congratulations to Letizia's doctors haha!

I believe everyone has the right to feel better as long they don't do anything that will harm them (spiritually or physically). Letizia made the right decision in order to feel better. Why would someone have to live with an "ugly" nose if they have the chance to change it? A nose job is the same as changing your hair colour...

i personally don't believe the zarzuela version behind the surgery (why not just admit it was because of esthetical issues?) but i see nothing wrong in letizia getting her nose done. it's obviously her own body and certainly something that concerns 0% her role as princess: as long as she looks dignified and appropriate for her role, that's all it matters and where the public opinion's liberty finishes.

Even if it was only for esthetical reasons, she was right to do it

There is a picture on the Spanish Royal website that shows her nose very well. If you will look it appears one nostril is much smaller than the other. My husband was like that and he could not breathe at all on one side.

The picture is about 3/4 of the way down. It is a picture from China where she is looking up at the Prince. I think the date is July 2006. I do not think it was vanity at all. I think she was having problems breathing.

you are right, in this picture (second in the link) it's quite evident: http://spaansekoningshuis.web-log.nl...7/china_4.html

No, thank you for posting the link.

That can actually be painful. Probably my nostrils used to look like hers on the picture (I had the same thing). I didn't have problems breathing but sometimes breathing was painful in one of my nostrils, it was like breathing very cool air and my mom said that I was a snoring baby, probably because of that too.

Sarcastic or not, it is important and it's better that the condition be corrected now rather than wait for the woman to keel over and faint because she couldn't breathe.

Maybe it did take a long time before they diagnosed the condition because shortness of breath can be a symptom to several other conditions/illnesses.

Well, I don't care if she had a nose job or not, that's her personal choice. I hope the Princess is in more comfort now, because I've heard that deviated septums can make it quite hard to breathe sometimes.

Having a nose job or not I don't really care as long as she's doing a fantastic job and helping her husband serve Spain. I'm no SPanish but let's see how the Spanish media reacts to this news. Was Letizia heavily criticized in the Spanish newspapers now for having her nose done for medical reasons? I would love to know that.

All in all, she had a nose job. It's the end of summer - a real down time - no official events planned for a while - good time to have the surgery done. Then the airplane crash and Letizia is forced to appear in public (if she had not appeared then there would have been even more rumors). In the video in one of the posts her face looks swollen and she looks just different. Because of the plane crash and Letizia having to make a public appearance and the surgery being so obvious, the SRF had to issue a statement regarding the surgery. I am sure that Letizia was hoping to ease back into her royal duties this Fall without anyone noticing a thing.
Please don't slam me, but I don't like the new nose. You are born with the nose which fits your face. She could have corrected the "deviated septum" and not changed the shape of her nose.
