For example, the King can leave his right to a guest if he wants to honour him; and although protocol says it can't be done, the King is Sovereign and commands (I think I already told this story ; during an official event when passing a door the King told a portuguese embassador to go in front of him and he did. Everyone started whispering about our embassador' lack of education and disregard for protocol. Later he explained, there is no protocol when a King Orders you to do something you just have to obey)

I remember that at Easter Mass Photoshoot the Prince was badly placed as he was in the left side of the picture meaning that all the others were more important.

I read some newspapers pointing it as a scandal

CP Letizia dress is really lovely - I love it and she looks just fab in it

I don't think Christina needs to lose any weight! By golly, she's a mother of 4 kids and if i had her body after 4kids i'd be so happy. She looks healthy, glowing and beautiful.

Some women after 1 child looks 10 times worst than Christina after 4 kids....

Let's not compare both ladies - they're completely different in body type and make but both equally beautiful, healthy and glowing

I'm really opposed to these kind of harsh and insensitive comments. I think they are insensitive and insulting in the least to begin and absolutely unconstructive. They are public figures but they are also human, too. Weight is such a sensitive issue for so many people, what if someone saw a picture of you and said "Boy, she needs to lose about 10 pounds to look elegant?" I also don't get why some people are so obsessed with the weight of certain princesses and go around this forum saying that this princess is fat or that this princess needs to lose weight and this princess is too thin. With the exception of Letizia (and even that I see as being a minimal issue), I don't see that any of the other princesses have weight issues that need to be commented on by anyone here.

Cristina is about as average an individual as one can be, someone whose weight has gone up and down throughout her entire life. She is a woman in her forties who has had four kids.

I actually saw some pictures of her earlier in the summer and thought that she was getting more thin than earlier in the year.

I think it's not a matter of weight here -- it's just a combination of a bad dress paired with an upswept hair do which elongates her body which is attired in a shapeless outfit.

Here are some nice singles of Letizia and one of Felipe:

I love Letizia's shoes! The color is summery and it matches perfectly with her dress!

Hi guys. I'm Nadiah from Malaysia and I'm a newbie (sort of). Just want to thank all of you who have posted the pictures and the articles on the SRF's summer vacations. It has indeed been a wonderful summer, with the little ones taking centre stage.
See you guys around.
Yay, my first post

I remember a bunch of people saying weeks before that Letizia and Cristina did not get along well because they were not talking at the Marivent photo shoot.

Now we have a picture where they are next to each other and talking.

Oh, my goodness! I don't like to get into this type of discussion, but I really feel that I must say something here in agreement with those in support of the Infanta. She looks absolutely fabulous. She has a completely different bone structure than Princess Letizia and could not possibly ever lose enough weight to look like her. If you will check page 52, post number 1028, there are photos of Cristina in a bathing suit where she looks great, whether she has had four children or not!

I really wish that these unkind comparisons would stop as I feel that this kind of criticism is where a lot of the problem with body image and eating disorders for young girls begins.

I do apologize if this post is in the wrong place and needs to be moved to another thread.

A big big "HELLO!" to all of you, it's great to be here again after a short break!!!

Thanks for the pictures, all "girls" were lovely. It's funny, but Cristina's dress reminds me the one Letizia wore for the same reception one year ago (but it was pre-mummy dress, of course).

Cristina having to loose some weight?! I think many women in their 40's, even if they don't have kids, have some problems with having the slender figure, esp. in belly area. Cristina has 4 kids and looks terrific, just look at her pics in swimsuit. She is very tall and her height surely helps her to hide some extra kilos (if they are).

I think most of us here can agree than Cristina is lovely the way she is! However, as nice as the white dress is, I think the TOP half of the dress isn't so flattering due to her wider shoulders. It creates an 'illusion'!

I think it is the below part that suits her unflatering. She has tall and elegant legs, take a look at her last pictures in an act where she's wearing trousers... she looks great - slim, tall and elegant!

But she chose that fresh and juvenile model and that's OK, she looked comfortable in it and that is the first thing I expect from them. To honour the House they represent but doing it with their means and remaining the people they are.

mtbcm

I can see what you mean, but the way the straps fall across her shoulders is what I meant, to me that makes them look wider. Don't get me wrong, I still think she looks nice! It's just my opinion

Well, the photos in which Infanta Cristina is wearing bathing suit say everything, she is a very good looking woman. Just the dress she wore wasn't maybe the best choice for her figure. Although the dress was nice, nothing bad about it, just not very fitting. Anyway I remember that when I saw the photos with both Infantas on the boat I was amazed about the way they both looked, very slim, fresh, just beautiful.

Both Infantas look really good for someone who's in their forties and with children, but I think they also work very hard to maintain such figure even Felipe because putting on weight really runs in their family. They probably watch their diet and work out to stay slim.

Letizia is very handsome in these photos. She seems more healthful than the last time that we could see her.
....and I think that if Cristina wanted to thin more, she could not.
