(how exciting, i can't help thinking that letizia will be the one who will be host to the first ladies of the world coming for state visits to spain!)

i just watched this video and something surprised me: towards the end of the video, the queen asked a lady "where her child was from". the lady replied with, what i believe is, the place in spain where they lived. the queen said: "yes but... originally, where from?", as the child didn't look to have spanish traits. the mother replied that he was from panama.
i found it a rather disconcerting comment by the queen. i was always told it was rude to "question" the origin of someone - ie. if they say american, but look to be of asian origin, it would be rude to say "yes, but where are you from originally?" as that person, although he may have an asian family, may well be born in the US or may simply "feel" like an american, rather than asian. i would have thought the queen would know this very well, with her background, her education and her protocolar upbringing...

Princess Letizia's gown for the gala dinner was just breathtaking..........when I saw the pictures of her, omg, she is stunning, more so now then ever. Every inch a regal Queen.....wow!
The dress she wore to attend the reception, again, just beautiful It fit her like it was molded on to her body, what a beautiful woman.

The First Lady of Mexico is beautiful yet PL is more so..........

The US concept of "Politically Correct" is not universally observed. The questioning by the Queen was certainly lacking in prudence.

Oh dear, I'm afraid I'm always doing this sort of thing because it interests me to learn of peoples' heritage. I see no harm in taking an interest in a persons cultural background. I was introduced to someone recently who was very obviously English - accent, surname etc - but had rather Mediterranean looks and I asked them if they were Italian - they replied yes, their mother comes from Rome.

State visit from Mexico: June 9 - 10, 2014

^agree with you. but asking it in the form of "but where are you actually from?" may be offensive. so for me, if we ask in something like "what's your family origin?" it would fine IMO. I don't think Sofia asked the question with bad intention though.
