She's the daughter of Cristina de Bourbón Dos-Sicilias and Pedro Lopez-Quesada, the very same girl who was victim of the famous kicks of Felipe Froilán, during F&L's wedding...
By the way, Letizia is like honey for children... they all adore her!:)

The girl is Victoria Lopez Quesada, I did not know her until the year in the wedding, but she looks like a very affectionate and tender girl and seems that she has a very good relation with Letizia.

The Royal Family wants normality without resigning to the privileges


11 of August of 2005. The Spanish Royal Family has been able to be in the front sight by something as absurd as they are the vacations of summer. The participation of Prince Felipe in the Glass of the King of Candle has not raised to blisters between the authorities and the outstanding informers in Majorca. And everything by the desire of the parejita to enjoy to top of its last August without children.

Personally, the reason used by Princes de Asturias seems to me a hair seizure towards the rest of the citizens who take care by themselves of the care of their children in all the stations of the year. Of course, this one never will be the case of the heirs, that they will have to his disposition one cut of niñeras and assistants to take care of his future baby. Which will allow an absolute freedom of maneuver them in its periods of rest.

We lived at a time at which the Royals wishes to be normal people, but without resigning to its privileges. The princes and princess get up themselves to the labor world. Either as wage-earning or by own account. As in the case of Infants Elena and Cristina. Greater of the daughters of Don Juan the Carlos, in company of other partners, already a long time ago he opened a day-care center which they attend the children of the most seeded of the Madrilenian society. Nevertheless, the initiative of the wife of Marichalar almost forces to close the kindergarten in which first classes Froilán and Victoria Federica received his. And it is that, they want it or no, the Borbones marks to tendency and people pirra to follow their steps.

Infant Cristina works in the Caixa. Aside, the medium one of Reina Sofía has created a society with Iñaki Urdangarín, that after its abandonment of the professional handball does not give supply to attend the numerous advice of administration in which it participates. In addition, Iñaki has been postulated to be president of the HAMMOCK. Nevertheless, the attempt has run into with the refusal of some members of so prestigious organization, that they even got to denounce some orquestales maneuvers in the dark.

To who does not go to him nothing badly is to Jaime de Marichalar. The one that outside favorite son-in-law of Doña Sofía has become the man of confidence of Bernard Arnault, president of emporio LVMH. The Duke of Lugo arranges this work with his position of Cement advisor Portland Valderrivas. It is difficult to find out to how much they promote the monthly income of the son of the countess widow of Ripalda. What yes he is safe is that the Marichalar-Borbón family does not have problems to arrive at end of month.

Unlike other real houses, the Spanish does not have to render accounts of how she distributes near eight million euros that annually receive from the general budgets of the State. What does impossible to know what amount gives the sovereign to each one of its children. Although if we added what Cristina and Elena obtain in their deprived activities, with the number sent by his augusto father, we will reach the conclusion that its existence nothing has to do with the one of the rest of the mortals who work to pay invoices.

Without a doubt, having blue blood is not badly a business. So I do not see just the odd habit that has entered to them some Borbones spending east summer unnoticed. Prince Felipe, as soon as descries to the journalists, requests to them encarecidamente that they leave his Letizia peacefully. Apparently, the heirs have seted out not to exhibit themselves in public and persist in behaving like the normal pair that they are not, nor will be, no matter how hard they insist.

In addition, this conduct is causing more of an upheaval to the rest of its relatives. For example, Infant Cristina had to embark in the last day of the regatas to calm more than heated spirits than they run by the island. Reina already is until the cap of which they follow it during his strolls by Palm. To the point that has asked for the photographers who give a breathing him.

But who more gotten upset is with Princes de Asturias he is the King. His Majesty asked to his son and his daughter-in-law who did not leave Majorca until the nautical competition finalized. Nevertheless, the pair went the recommendation through its real lining and maintained course to a unknown place of which they have still not returned. At least while I write these lines.

The whole royal family has already returned to Mallorca. What's the point then of feeding this over-worked polemic with old articles???

And may I ask how on earth does this person know that «His Majesty got upset with the Princes»?

I don't think she has moved away I just think they have diffrent intrests. While Juan Carlos, Cristina, and Felipe enjoy the sailing competitions Elena seems to prefer equestrian events. Therefore Elena and her family go someplace else during the regattas.

On a Sunday in family

The Kings, the princes of Asturias, the dukes of Lugo and those of Palm photographed each other in the "Fortuna""

In honor to the truth and to the justice it is necessary to clarify that these photos have been possible thanks to our companion, and friend, Maria Angeles Alcázar, of " La Vanguardia ", since it was the one who managed them across a member of the Royal Family. And it is that Marivent is of congratulation on having been this one a summer that will give step to an autumn that it us will bring to the inheritor of the Wreath, and what better occasion that that one to assemble all in a photo that will remember the summer in which the infanta dona Cristina had increased the family with a girl and the princess Letizia was waiting for her first son. And above, since the whole family is already in Palm - today, because of the commitments of some and others, it is not easy to assemble all-, what better occasion that that one?
The photo was done yesterday in the morning on board deFortuna, when, to few speed, it passed ahead from us, located in the dike of the West, not very removed from the beacon. On cover, together with the Kings and the dukes of Palm, who are whom more we have seen this summer, we discover the dukes of Lugo, who with their children joined to the Majorcan summer the day before yesterday.
Also we saw the princes of Asturias, new comers of - as it seems - Greece, where they have happened last week, with which the doubt has been solved of " where will they be? ", so since they left the Island seven or eight days ago, we they had lost the track. " Will they have gone to Asturias? ", we were wondering. So not, in Asturias they were not, since the Asturian colleagues, one day yes and other one also, were not making ask any more than us us if we had news of them, since they were in the alive one without living in me, with the soul in a fist because of the uncertainty.

How Marezdote says to the Infata has never liked very much the ditches, to part of it, with a month of vacations, it is normal that they want to go away to some place that is not Palma.
Palma continues being Spain, and in summer it is full of press and photographers, it is normal that they want to search a bit of tranquility, a place where to be able to relax indeed. The same thing happens with the Princes,that they have gone away one week to disconnecting.
Nevertheless, the Infanta Cristina is spending there almost all her vacations (durantes a few days were not and almost nobody gave itself all), I imagine that because she cannot go very far with 3 children and a baby either.
Besides, the daily life of the brothers is very different. The Infata Cristina lives in Barcelona, there she takes a much calmer life, and the press great less. The Infanta Elena lives in Madrid and there her life cannot be so discreet. As for the children, those of the Infanta Elena I imagine that more often come very much during the year to their grandparents because they live in the same city, whereas to those of Barcelona the grandparents them enjoy more in vacations.
And in case of the Princes, itis quite taken to the end. The press chases them always. Besides it they live in Madrid, I believe that to one or two kilometres of the Kings but inside the same enclosure. Not if they will continue doing it, but initially the offices were supporting them in La zarzuela ... so come to the Kings practically every day.
And I believe that up to in the best families, it is necessary to drift apart occasionally.
