Anyway I wont take this discussion further, obiously its no point in arguing about it in this forum where there is only one right way to do things, the spanish way, all the others are either lazy, party hoppers, not serious, not dedicated, only do fluff duties like fashionshows and christening roses, clotheshorses and what not.
I couldn´t agree more! I really used to like Felipe and Letizia...and I still do...but these ppl, who defend blind all and everything what F&L do or not do, just make me searching for the faults in F&L...and mostly I find the excuses for them so exaggerated, that I simply think "Why don´t you simply keep the fingers from the keyboard and let the pictures speak???" It´s not, that I haven´t done the same mistake and I got also into the M&F and L&F trap and used the one to make the other looking bad (and vice versa...and also with other Royals) But in the end this defence just results in even more antipathy on the other side...and I guess that shouldn´t be the effect of a defence

According to an information of a Spanichs journalist ( Maria Angeles Alcazar) specialized and that covers the acts of the royal Spanish family.

The Princes of Asturias have been present at the celebration of Luxembourg, but they have not posed for the press.
There is an official photo of the celebration with the representatives of the royal European houses together , which still does not its publishes, but we will see in the next days.

Thanks for the information. Then in the end they were. Let us wait for the official photos.:)


I have not said that the others are silly; to my the other princes and kings never interest to me nor I think on them.
And on the one of the geography class if it seemed to you rude, sorry; but I said it why it is trying to explain on Spain, lula

But also it is necessary to say that the princes of Asturias have many more acts or I am mistaken?

Simply I see that attack the princes single not to go to celebrations, without knowing the reasons.

Then a Spanish journalist finishes saying that they if went to Luxembourg, that in the next days photos will leave.

Thanks for these, johann! We can always count on Prince Radu to provide us with different perspectives photos (thank goodness he's invited to this event.. )
It looks like Princess Christina of Sweden & her husband, Tord Magnusson also attended the event (look at the last pic)

Here's pictures of Prince Radu & Princess Margarita at the Picnic Luncheon at the woods

1 - with Prince Hamzah of Jordan
2 - with King Simeon of Bulgaria and ?

Dear Larzen, I read your pamphlet, and hopful not you aren't right. It's seem to me that the some Crown Princes and Crown Princess are very dedicted, for example Victoria Of Sweden who is doing a fantastic job, the Neerland ones, the Norwegian ones.

It's allways better compare all which is comparable, it's not a georaphic lesson, it's a question of good sens

Let's move forward on this discussion.

This thread has become quite off-topic with geography lessons and comments like "it's not a competition but ..." While some members are able to reply with rationality, others are not as it seems to have become quite personal for some.

Each Crown Princely couple is respected and cherished in their own country. We don't need maps or a list of the acts they've done in the past several years to prove that they are better or more superior than other couples.

Frankly, whether Felipe or Letizia were in attendance at this special Luxembourg celebration or not has become besides the point in my opinon as their defenders are railroading this discussion.

I do not see the fans or defenders of Willem and Maxima or Frederik and Mary or Gustav and Silvia making such a big fuss over the lack of pictures or their physical status on this second night.

You may not agree with what is being said about your favourite Crown Princely couple and it's your right to defend them, but it's not necessary to be overly aggressive about it. Such an attitude ruins the fun and the entertainment value derived from this forum.

according to the crown princess mary message board, kalina shaved her head because she wanted to. she did, however, have some sort of sinus infection and had to have surgery on her nose, thus her lose looks different.

I don't think that is Princess Kalina, this is a close up cropped from Prince Radu's photo. The dress is different from what Kalina wore.

It is not necessary to to speculate on these things.

The Princess Kalina always has been very bohemian, and often the hair has been cut, and often she takes scarves in the head. She lives in Spain and it has never been speculated by that suffers no disease.

Yes, but the make-up seems to be similar. I think she put sth on her dress to cover. I really hope it's not a cancer.

That's what I thought because it would've been impossible that those major MIA royals were not there after their respective Houses announced that they would be there. It's just a pity that they didn't pose for the photographers though. I would've loved to see Letizia's, Mary's, and Maxima's dresses.

Let's not carry on this line of discussiona bout Princess Kalina having cancer unless a credible source can be provided to say that she has it.

Cancer is a serious illness that should not just be bandied about.

Just because she has no hair does not mean that she has cancer.

Any further refrences to Princess Kalina having cancer will be removed without notice.

I have mixed feelings over the photos and reports of this (and the Swedish) event by Radu. On the one hand, I love seeing pictures of the event -- see who has gone, what they wore, etc. Kind of feel like a fly on the wall to a privileged event. On the other hand, I think this is an invasion of privacy and if it were my "by invitation" party, I wouldn't be too thrilled with his photo album and notes appearing on the web of all places!
