IMO I don't see anything wrong with Letizia, in fact I think she brought again the fantasy of a commoner marrying a prince. So what if she's divorced? It's not a crime, she didn't kill anybody in the past. I admire Felipe because FINALLY he married someone HE DID CHOOSE, if he's happy who cares?

She seems to be smart, at least she knows how to conduct herself amoung royalties, presidents, anyone, because she's educated. And she will improve in the future...

Curiously, there is a commentary, that I already is the well-read one several times, in different mass media ... the Prínce has changed, possibly a bit because he has changed, and because it has changed the perception that is had of him. Before he was perceived as a more introverted, more serious, a bit distant person. Much more seemed to the Queen Sofia (that now already one relaxes more) that to such a spontaneous character of his father. Nevertheless, from his wedding, one sees a man, more serene, happy, and seems that more nice and nearby. Possibly, this it has been one of the Letizia's most important contributions in this time, to do that the Prince was opened more as person.

How so? She's besotted with her daughter, what's wrong with that?


So what are you suggesting she should do then if you don't want her to do middle-class things? Let a nanny do all the work, take assistants with her when she goes shopping, don't go to the theater and dinner out with husband, anything else? In other words you don't want them to do normal things, correct?
She should just be herself and stop trying to be the center of attention. I don't have a say in anything she does...she can do anything she wants and more. I am just giving an opinion of how I perceive her. That's all folks!

It's to bad to see that because some have decided, may be since the begining of the Letizia's life as Princess of Asturias, that she is the worst of arriviste woman and by the way ALL OF THAT SHE IS DOING IS FALSE ATTITUDE.

It's so simplistic that it doesn't be considered as an argument of an objective dialactic and it's difficult to understnd why some of us are going to assert some facts/ideas which doesen't correspond with the reality. First it's totally irrelevant, then it's whithout any interest.

It will be more honest to say :"as I don't like the Princess of Asturias I'm going to explain you why" rather than to repeat and repeat some gossips/rumors which are quiet always denied some days after WHITHOUT any apologizes from the one which had expressed the false news. What's the matter, when you want that the reality has to be exactly as you have decided and not as it's actually.

The show must go on....
You are right. There are people in this forum who love Letizia and repeat themselves to death and others who have different opinions, some times, and are criticized to death...

How is she trying to be the center of attention? She hasn't really done much as a crown princess. It's the press who follow her every move that's why it seems like she's trying to attract attention. Everything that she does and does not do makes news. She is the star, if you will, of the SRF just like the other crown princesses to the royal families they married into. Could you give me an example how you think she's trying to be the center of attention because I don't see that at all?

I like the way the act as parents. Leonor is their daughter, the job of every PARENT is to RAISE their CHILDREN that's what they're doing, whenever they can spend time with her.. well they do it and when they can't well the nanny takes care of the girl. I don't know what's the big deal. Queen Sofia always (when she could) took care of their children and they turned out fine and that's probably one of the reasons they're a united and loving family. IMO!!

The Princess Letizia is the center of attention, but it is not anything that she decides or claims, is something that comes to her, the press and the people turn her into the center of attention.

From her marriage, she has occupied a secondary role, clarifying that the Prince is the inheritor and she is behind him. This it is the difficult way, to accept that your position is secondary and to live to the shade. For two years she has not had activities in solitarily, and has limited herself to hear, to seeing and being quiet. In a discreet role that is reflected even in the clothes, with classic and simple suits (for even boring some).

And it has not prevented it that the attention centres on her, alone or accompanied. The press follows more the activities of the Princes, that those that the Prince realizes in solitarily. And in that she realizes in solitarily, it seems that the press has become "a bit "mad".

She sneezes and there they all are. Everything is a news, and can come to an act with other members of the Royal Family ... and she can be perfect ... but calm that someone was looking for an insignificant detail of which to do news.

Probably if last Saturday Letizia had come to the Military Easter, her alone presence, pregnant woman and of gala it had been a news. But before the most minimal gesture of weariness, before any sample for minim that was of that she was badly, the attention would have centred on her. The institution and seriousness of the act would have met lost, and probably the speech of the King on the terrorism had not come from the same way.

For the good thing and for the bad thing, if she is present they will look for news.

I agree 100%. Besides, Letizia didn't choose to be the center of attention. She's the CP of Spain and it's only natural that she has the spotlight every minute of the day. If you could see the most popular members of every royal house are the future king and queen.. that's is why they're so popular. the public is so curious to their everyday job and as to how they will continue the tradition and live up to the public's expectations.

Haha, good one. That's not as easy as it sounds. Ask Eva Sannum I think Letizia is doing a great job though, people should just give her some soom. Especially now that she's pregnant, it's good for her to take things easy. I think it's a wonderful couple

I don't think that all anchors, reporters or other people, connected with Media must love attention - it was just a profession, profession she was handling very professionaly, in my opinion.

So you're basically saying that people like Christiane Amanpour, Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, to name a few, chose the journalistic profession because they love the attention?

If we go on about this idea all the jobs in which you are to expose yourself to the look of the others are because you love attention!

I'm thinking about baristers, doctors in ONG and so on.

If we kept in mind this idea it does mind that it doesn't exist never the willing to do a profession like that for itself but only because you love attention!

Is it your idea?

To be journalist is to love the attention?

what made you think of that? I know lots of news anchor who are very popular and yet they don't seen to love the attention! you chose a profession basically because you want to contribute something on that particular profession not because you want the attention. If Letizia wants attention she could have been an actress and go to Hollywood!!!by all means she has all the attention!!! As I've said on my previous thread, she didn't choose to have all the attention same with other CPss. It's natural to have the spotlight on you esp. if you're a royal and thus becoming a public person..

i think the decision of choosing to be a journalist is directly related to the fact that her family was a family of journalists. both her grandmother and father worked as journalists and she showed signs of liking it since a very early age and she was obviously very talented at that.

i truly think there are other commoner-royals who enjoy media attention a lot more than letizia, who always seems to be in the second place at every event and understood that felipe is actually the heir to the spanish throne and that she is the princess consort.

I would like to have some input in this thread.

In the issue of Letizia having more attraction for the media and the public, in my opinion I think it has something to do with the fact that in Spain and anyone following royal activity, has known the Prince and the rest of the Spanish Royal family for ages. So she is the new person in there and she actually arises a significant amount of curiosity and that's quite logic. Also she is a woman and there are a lot of women following the issues in this forum, so naturally whatever she does and wears, the way she speaks, etc, arises a significant amount of coverage, because people want to know her. You know very well the rest of the members of the Spanish Royal family and you want to know all about the knew one, also it helps the fact that she is a woman.

There is also a significant amount of loss of the glamour of, for instance actresses and other celebrities, and people want to have what were the old celebrities, and she fits the bill perfectly as a new royal that comes from the "normal" people, so she actually becomes a modern cinderella.

In the issue of her committing some mistakes, she has made several protocol mistakes, as going first in acts she accompanies the Prince and wearing white in China (which might not have been what it would have been in the past, but nonetheless she should have reconsidered that suit) and she has make several remarks not appropriated in several occasions. I can look for photos if anyone wants about the first two I have mentioned and reference articles (that one will take me a bit of time though).Definitely it's not as if she has harmed the country, but I have to hope she will never do anything like that

In any case this is only my opinion about the issue
