I am sure His Majesty will keep this in mind !
He wasn't happy, but not only this, the French couple let Hola's cameras do exclusive pictures of them inside El Pardo before the gala dinner. El Pardo is not like a hotel in New York where they had Hello cameras followed them exclusively, what would the Queen of England feel if these two were doing the same inside Buckingham Palace if they were allowed to stay there ?

There was no match between Carla and Camilla !
Well I think that was pretty understandable. Carla and Letizia were like in the same age bracket compared to Camilla and Carla. I think the reason why Carla requested for a private meeting with Letizia was that she was simply intrigued by her personality. Who knows maybe after this visit we see Carla and Letizia together. Is there a scheduled visit of the CP couple to France? Maybe we'll see these two together.

Thumbs up

In my humble opinion the Spanish ladies totally outshone Mrs. Sarkozy. Both HM and Letizia looked very elegant and regal (loved the long curly hairstyle of Letizia with her tiara)! Not saying that Mrs. Sarkozy looked like a dog's dinner or anything but the Queen and the Princess both looked totally amazing.

I heard -on a spanish tv show- it is false that Carla Bruni wanted to meet Letizia privately, all that was invented because it is a good headline.

Btw Letizia was stunning at that dinner, that hairdo is awesome with the tiara!

Interesting how the other first ladies started wearing Alaia to public functions since Michelle Obama wore his black dress in France recently and also his black belt that she wears all the time on top of her various outfits.

So Michelle Obama has become a style icon for the Royalty now? Does Rania have her own sylist?

This recent state visit made Letizia visible to the British headlines. It looks like the British press has a new princess.

Finally, the international media reduced the State Visit between France and Spain to a picture showing the backsides of two women.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Jc-svreYHI...letizia-1a.jpg

Carla can move on when her stint as First Lady ends whilst Princess Letizia will be reduced to the Royal Barbie (quoting the article below) until her daughter will be old enough to take her place.

And no, Britain doesn't have a new Princess. Thanks to Carla Letizia got some coverage but as quickly as the british tabloids found out that she existed (probably on the first day of the State Visit) they will forget about her again and look out for the next victim, as soon as Sarkozy confirms the destination of his next visit.

I thought that especially the Hola coverage was astonishing regarding the degree to what the Spanish media was courting this couple. Not only to put just the two of them on the front page but also the first six or more pages just showing only them, preparing and posing in JC's rooms prior to the gala dinner.

I can hardly recall any case when guests dared to overshadow their hosts (including JC) in such a bold manner. And worst of all, the impression remains that it is not really about France but only about themselves.

They are both very beautiful women but for me Carla (who looked the image of Audrey Hepburn) won by far.

True. Hola did what they usually do for the celebrities who posed for them exclusively. But Sarko and Carla are the French President and his wife on an official visit, they shouldn't downgrade themselves to the level of some celebrities who sold their exclusive stories/poses to Hola for publicity or money.
