In between the two speeches, they did often whisper into each other's ears (mostly Felipe initiated the talk) or looked at each other, perhaps that's the way they exchanged their opinions or let each other know their reactions. Those gestures are perfectly normal for a couple who are well connected intellectually. According to the journalists who followed them, they both had good obervations, after each event, they did critical analysis, usually nothing escaped them.
I appreciate your reply, my point though is what people (anyone, not only royals) have a need to do in public, and not whether they listen to the speech or not.

If you read a little carefully, my point was that a couple exchanging opinions in-between the speeches is perfectly normal, royal or not.

Yes I did read your post carefully, thank you. I don't follow the Spanish RF comings and goings ardently, but since they were married, (and I have read other people comment it in the forums) I have noticed a tendency to show their affections, in public. This occurs when they are well aware of the fact that their every move is photographed. I beleive, if you are comfortable and assured of your relationship you will not have the need to "prove" it. This is my opinion and I am entitled to it as you are to yours

They have always been the same way since the first time they appeared in public for Sofia's 65th birthday concert in Nov 2003. Perhaps that's just the way they are (some couples are just more affectionate towards each other than the others), otherwise, 5 years would have been too tiring to 'prove' it almost everyday (They averaged about 4 acts each week) . Other royal couples showing affection were also aware the cameras too, some even did staged photo sessions, of course you are entitled to your opinions.

Ah Yes, a very sweet, natural photo. There was a very similar one of Alexander and Maxima last month.

Joachim looks so much like the Queen. However he is aging prematurely. He looks tired or something.

I agree that he has aged prematurely, looking so much older than his brother. Maybe he has had a harder life or illness that his brother didn't have. Or just that he is so thin in the face which makes him look old.

In Joachim's case, IMO, he would look younger if he gained a little weight, especially in his face, it looks very drawn, thus making him look older. A good 20 pounds of muscle (& some fat) would do him a world of good.

You hit the nail on the head princess gertrude. Still lovely pictures of the couple. Definitely not shy to share kisses in public.

I can only donate 11 since I lost the other 9 but should he ask, I'll Fed Ex whatever he needs..........
Seriously I do not know if it is his complexion or what. He may be an avid runner. They usually get this drawn and thin.

Does Prince Joachim smoke? If so, that could be part of why he looks older than he is.
