Felipe's fiancée makes royal debut
9 DECEMBER 2003
One month after Crown Prince Felipe announced his engagement to newscaster Letizia Ortiz, the happy couple reappeared publicly for the first time this past weekend, joining the rest of the Spanish royal family to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the country's constitution.
The future princess opted to wear an elegant tweed jacket and skirt for the king's daytime address at congress – another first, as trousersuits have been Letizia's preference in the past – changing into a black silk skirt for the evening's celebrations, a concert held in the Royal Theatre in central Madrid.
Letizia has not been seen in public since November 6, when she and Prince Felipe appeared together at their official engagement presentation in the scenic grounds of El Pardo palace. The couple are set to wed at Madrid's Almudena cathedral on May 22.
