Dear Purple Platinum -- thank you for the picture of the King and Princess Letizia. I had not seen that one -- we don't get a very wide range of pictures of royalty here in the United States. Doesn't look like he objects to her too strenously, judging by the picture!! :>)

I think that he loves all his grandchildren and wants that to remain private. You don't see prince phillip cuddling and playing with his grandchildren. People just seem to want to makeup stories that cause pain to letizia that is a shame.

There are few photos of the King with his grandchildren, and more being babies. Probably with Froilán that was the first one ... later some joke, some gesture, some kiss ... but little more. Neither I believe that there are in general many photos of other Kings with his grandchildren.When Irene was born he was criticized for being late many days in being going to visit her.

Very little it comparing with the Queen Sofia, but the Queen always has been charmed with the children. Besides, up to these summer vacations only there was one Leonor's photo in arms of her grandmother.

HOT FAREWELL.

The Princes of Asturias were specially affectionate in the delivery of prizes of the Cup of the King of Vela, celebrated on Sunday in Palm. It would be the farewell, because a few hours later Felipe de Borbón was travelling course to Bogota to be present at the investiture of Álvaro Uribe as president of Colombia.

Some men aren't comfortable holding babies. I know that the King held his own children when they were babies, but perhaps he feels awkward holding Leonor.

There are also no pictures (to my recollection) of the King holding Irene either. Does that mean that he dislikes Inaki?

Just because there are no actual pictures doesn't mean that the King dislikes Letizia or Inaki or doesn't love Leonor or Irene.

On this note, I also think that the King is more comfortable with his grandkids when they are older. There are many more pictures of the King joking around with Juanito, Froilan or Pablo, or holding hands with Victoria.

Some people get along very well with all kids, while others get along with babies and some with older kids. The King doesn't seem like someone who might coo and fawn over babies but who would more likely have a joke to tell or tease older kids.

I think the King loves all of his grandchildren very much but relates to them in a different manner than the Queen.

There was actually one photo of the King lifting Leonor during the Easter mass in Mallorca on a magazine (Lecturas, I think). Why is there only one, beats me. In addition, he also carried Leonor inside the Club Nautico a few days ago as been written, but there were no photos again. Why were there no photos, beats me again. In short, just because we don't see any visual proofs do not necessarily mean that he has no "amor" for Leonor.

Just recently there was a lovely photo of Letizia embracing the King on his boat before the first sailing competition and it certainly looked affectionate. I don't recall the King lifting Leonor during the Easter mass but he did lift up Irene outside the entry to the church. I think we have to be very careful about rumors.

Oh I agree. She is really tender lovely with her grandchildren. Sometimes some people accuse Queen Sofia of some distance and coldness. This pics show clearly how warm she is. I like also to see the friendship between Froilan and Juan Valetin, they will be good pals in future!

Another pic of them (by Hola.com)

There is no news about what they think to do, not on when they return to Madrid.

The King does not go on holidays, changes residence; it is a different shade. They have the free time of the vacations, but the King continues being employed at the office and attends to some private meetings and official acts. This article explains it.
Summer Holidays in Mallorca: 2006
Summer Holidays in Mallorca: 2006

The vacations of the authorities in Spain are in August, but the Kings are in the habit of advancing their movement to Marivent to July in order that the King is present at the Breitling, and to receive all the local authorities. Normally they are there until ends of August. At the moment it seems that there are no any more official programmed activities, and that now they begin the real vacations.

Last chapter in this regatta novel. Letizia, in all her facets, is the unquestionable star of the Royal Family. Present or absent, she is always matter of conversation.

2004 will remain in the history of the Island as the year Letizia experienced the Mallorcan waters for the first time. It was on the second day of the Breitling regatta that the Princess was seen on board of the Somni, waving to the photographers, along with her niece and one of her nephews: Victoria Federica de Marichalar and Juan Valentín Urdangarín.

In 2005, the CAM won the cup, but without the participation of the Prince in the regatta. Reason: the pregnancy of Letizia. The Prince and Princess were the protagonist of one of the most expected moments for the fans of the Spanish family: their afectinate hug, on board of the Somni.

In 2006, the question would be: will Infanta Leonor outshine her mother? The answer is no. Both are tied up. This summer will be remembered like that one when the Royal Family has not given rest to the journalists. The King, Queen and the Princes of Asturias have let themselves be photographed in numerous occasions by the Nautical Club: at the inauguration of a photographic exhibition, during the Copa del Rey, even the Princes have received the Golden medal of Sa Pobla.

The Infantas have joined later and, during the last days of the competition, little Juan Valentín and Froilán showed their hurt foreheads and chin. Nothing serious… those blue-blood children also are get hurt.

The most commented by the yellow press was the thinness of the Princess. Last August 1st, she appeared at the warm Nautical Club wearing a cardigan, despite the 35 degrees of temperature... perhaps to hide some part of her body.

And next year, what will it be?... The second baby of Letizia and Felipe; the fifth child of Cristina and Urdangarín?

It is curious ... two days later the Infanta Elena appeared with a similar jacket ... what would have to hide she? ... that the Queen hides with her shirts of long sleeve?...To criticize for criticizing how always...With the easy thing that is to think what we all suffer quite the days ... while out it is hot, inside the cars, in the shops, in the closed places ... the air conditioning is to very low temperatures and the contrasts are horrible...this way there are many people with cold in summer.
