Thanks for the pics lapopdiva. :)

I see that Pablo and his dad were there too. It seems like the Princes enjoy very much the company of their lovely nephews.

Anyway, it's a shame we only can see Pablo and Iñaki in this pic.

El Confidencial has this hideous article, attacking Letizia in the most impolite way, and saying that she prohibited Felipe de Borbón - the future Head of State - to participate in the Copa del Rey.

Already there was well-read this article and it is really disgusting. The Prince is mayorcito to take his own decisions without need of that his wife forces him. Seeing the yesterday photos, there is demonstrated furthermore, that what he desires this year is to be in family and together with his wife. The article accuses letizia of sinking the Glass of the King, how if that was absent the Prince was doing that the competition was not costing a sorrow, it is an authentic stupidity gone out of tone.
Even it manages to say that when the trip to Balearics took place Letizia was absent to the meetings not because she had nothing but because in the meetings they were not leaving her to speak. It seems that enclosed he has slightly personally in opposition to her.
Indeed that is an offensive article, but not only for Letizia, but for any woman. It seems that the man who has written it lives in the Middle Ages. A few days ago he did the same thing with Catherin Zeta Jones blaming her that Michael Douglas was not so much this year to Palma. And also I criticize Claudia Shiffer because she said that ishe was going to pass fewer days there, because now she has to her children and her life has changed.
The truth is that it is sad that never allow Letizia in peace, that they should criticize her till when she does not do anything. They do not leave her alone nor being pregnanacy. Besides, if she does it they criticize it, but if any other member of the Royal Family does it , not. And that certain journalists want to impose them even like they have to

Well, it's a very silly article, but... let's demonstrate that I'm on holidays!
Here is the translation:

Letizia superstar “sinks” the King’s Cup of Nautical Sail.

By Luis Salvador


As Luis Salvador comments in the newspaper “The Confidential”, Letizia Superstar has just “sunk” the King’s Cup, which is traditionally celebrated in the bay of Palma during the first week of August. A fleet of a hundred of ships of a dozen of countries, sunk for the gesture of a sour woman.


The Confidential says that pregnant but not embarked is her motto, and in addition she has prohibited Felipe de Borbón – Spain’s future Head of State - to take part in this competition of sunglasses and shorts. The Asturian journalist is pregnant and please... avoid asking who is the one who “wears the trousers” (Spanish saying that means who is the one who rules in a couple) in this marriage. Her rejection to giving birth close to the Mediterranean rehabilitates ironically the natives of the island, because having born under the insolent Majorcan climate is the reason of our awkward lacks. Daily, million children are born in the whole planet, but this one is going to be special. And as always, here there is a “background”, the princess doesn’t have any problem with the birth, but with any smelly local big fish which proximity troubles her exceedingly.

According to The Confidential, in her official visit to Baleares last May - the first one that the couple made after communicating the yearned pregnancy that the whole country was expecting for-, Letizia demonstrated that she hasn’t cornered her personality in a wardrobe. The hotel managers, who were criticized mercilessly, had to satisfy her inquisitive anxiety because, as a good professional of the media, she doesn’t accept the official version of a matter without making commentaries. She didn’t forbid herself to express her dissatisfaction when someone was disturbing her. Domesticated? Nothing of the kind! In fact, she often canceled her asistance to some acts in which she was going to play just a decorative role. If she couldn’t express her opinion, then she wasn’t OK.


Felipe de Borbón has participated in the majority of editions of the King's Cup. For a few years he has been in the crew of the CAM, led by Fernando León. Zarzuela has "disguised" the prohibition as a gift of the Prince to his wife, in order to can pass more time together before the birth. It is a really strange excuse, which weakens itself taking account of one thing: the couple won't pass the whole summer in Majorca, because a travel to Asturias is planed.


The confidential thinks that Letizia is a very "owner" person. Nevertheless, the Princes of Asturias enjoy in Majorca of the mansion of Sound Vent - the Infantas Cristina and Elena have both adjacent residences-, whose price would be very high if they were sold. Certainly, it is a free offering of the Majorcans, who now can see Catherine Zeta-Jones and Letizia Orti-Zeta trying to snatch away their respective pairs from Baleares.

No comments...
Well... sorry again for my English.:o

Thanks to everyone for the photos. They are very lovely and the family seem to truly have a wonderful time.:)


I think that anyone (a Letizia fan or not)can say that the article is utter garbage. It's a nice gesture on Felipe's part to decide to spend the time with Letizia instead of participating in King's Cup ;also what's the big deal about them spending time in Asturias? If the couple didn't plan to go, i'm sure that Elsa M. would've posted an equally condescending article about Letizia has "forgotten" her family and past.

I wish them lots of schmoozing time this summer. Once the baby arrives they'll be busy with other stuff. Everyone needs a special place to retreat to and for Letizia it seems to be her grandmother's house. Felipe's apparent support of Letizia and her family is wonderful to see. I give their marriage a very good chance of remaining happy. They seem like soulmates.

The Princes step on mainland

The blood will not arrive at the river. Majorca still walks revolutionized after knowing itself that the Prince will not participate in the regatas of the Glass of the King, but can that the absence in the sea is more than compensated with the firm Earth presence. Thursday, while some were torn the candles reason why they considered a desertion in all rule
Don Felipe and Doña Letizia made a triunfal appearance in the center of Palm to s ´ horabaixa he in bermuda shorts and she with jeans, t-shirt and shirt -, and not yet they are thought that it was the future more famous parents of Spain. Kind to the data: Doña Letizia was interested by the winter new features, since her baby will be born in the colds, but also had a little while reductions, that everything in her closet is not design. Although everything is necessary to say it, if somebody wants a jacket suit Letizia style, signed by Felipe Varela who goes to the English Court, that in these days also has them reduced.

Department store was the following shutdown of the pair in their route by the commercial center of Palm, although before there were photos with children, greetings of the mothers and congratulations to gogó. Everything very normal, except by the fact that although they bought enough, the Princes left all the stores without bags: some advantage they must have.

And what can more be done in the center of Palm aside from visiting the palace of the Almudaina that the Princes have sight by outside already and on the inside; then to take a horchata that refreshes, feeds and makes mother country. Doña Letizia took her glass and continued walking with him in the hand more, drinking sorbitos and walking with her every day enlarged belly as prow large mask.wrong letizia didn.t by no drinks. It was felipe only.

To the Princess which has hurt to him more these last days is that, in some media, she became responsable of the decision of the Prince of not participating in the Glass of the King, when perhaps it would be necessary to be thankful to him that the field of regatas has extended him until the firm Earth. It will not be that the Princes are already outlining their own style, their particular way to fit its institutional paper with an alternative way to be princes; we do not forget that they began their honeymoon in cuenca.

Thank you, Lula and Marezdote!
It must be odd to be followed by tens of paparazzi, while you're trying to do such trivial things as strolling with your husband, during the Summer vacations... But well, the photos are very nice :)
