True. I've bought tops in the past which have on stretching/or standing straight have revealed a slither of flesh like Rania. I'm hoping God will be more forgiving of my "sin"!

I really feel for Cristina in the pictures where she fell over, at least she managed to smile about it.

That's funny,since when showing mor skin was a sign or more modernization??!,if so,then the premitive people of some african countries and Islands,are the most modern in this planet

The muslim religion goes in the same way as the very modern feminist movements,both don't worship "La femme objet" or "The woman object" as a tool of image or as a superficial thing...,I think Rania should teach others about the right way to respect muslim/arab women with their culture,and not trying to make from them a copy of some women slaves of the culte of image and superficial things...

How is Rania making muslim women a sexual object or superficial object by revealing a sliver of flesh? Which to all intents and purposes seems to be accidental?

I think complaints about Rania's belly showing are rather extreme. It was a mistake, a little embarassing, but no more than that. Its hard to imagine Rania setting herself up as Le Femme Objet with that outfit so that anyone who sees her like that has an overactive imagination and one not too complimentary to women.

My sentiments exactly! I find it paradoxical that we become apologists of fundamentalism instead of proponents of emancipation

This must have been a very unpleasant moment for Beatrix and Claus.
During the wedding 1966 dustbombs were thrown on the street and the wedding carriage.

Some Dutch people were against the wedding of Beatrix with the German Claus, because of the bad experiences in the 2nd WorldWar.
There were some people who tried to "cancel" the wedding. They wanted Claus to leave the Netherlands and Beatrix not to marrie a German.

We know it for the Princess of Asturias ! It was not necessary to mentionn it now even if it's not a taboo question. I think, as many people, that it's not very fair to insist on this stupid windy accident which make laughing the Letizia's detractors. Please can we stop with that and pass up, it's a question of tact.

Of course, they are humans, like you and me. They eat, they have sex and they defecate like every human being. What an idiotic remark!
