Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia are attending the Opening of the Courts!!


It's at Casa Real agenda: http://www.casareal.es/ES/Actividade...spx?data=12979

I'm so happy they're attending, but at the same time I'm worryed. With the current climate at the congress and all those leftish and republicans representatives, and I'm afraid we can expect protests outside like on Rajoy's investment Maybe they're taking them there hoping that the deputies will behave out of respect for the girls, who knows....

Well, I hope nobody complains ever again that they are hiding them

Thanks for the updates Annie,I was beginning to think we'd never see the first State Opening of The Cortes of King Felipe VI's reign!

I usually complain but I have to say, this is absolutely an event where the girls should be in attendance, I don't find them too young and if there are protests so be it. At least for Leonor this will be the environment of her supposed position.

So far F&L have only brought the girls when they absolutely had to, when it comes to the institution, and this is one of those events.

I believe that their parents will prepare them for event by explaining that there could be some outbursts. That being said I hope that those inclined to having one during the ceremony will temper their response.

Tomorrow is the big day. As a start, Rajoy wants to ban memes, social network users’ way of gaining comic revenge on the politicians that rule people's lives. If this is the biggest problem in Spain, good luck!

No joke: Spanish prime minister's party suggests ban on internet memes

As an act of protest, Podemos will not attend the military parade or the King's salute during the solemn opening of the Cortes on Thursday. Asked if they will applaud Felipe VI's speech, that it will depend on what he says.

Nice ceremonial. Luckily the banners, flags, canopies, ceremonial display etc. added a great couleur locale to the solemn event.

It must have been a warm autumnal day in Madrid given that no one wore coats,I hope Leonor and Sofia had a memorable State Opening of the Cortes!

From what I've heard and read, there was no "boo", lucikily. Not any glaring protest. I'm saying this because of the girls...

i doubt that any protests that need to take place will stop out of 'respect' to leonor and sofia's presence. unfortunately spain's problems are deeply engrained and the presence of two little girls will have zero effect in whatever needs to take place.

on another note, the press noted letizia's leg appeared to have a big bruise.

Several spanish media are discussing that Letizia was in bad mood/absent-minded/angry, only distracted by watching every move of her daughters, even signalling them when to clap or stop clapping.

Social networks are full of comments about the obvious, suggesting she participated in the Mannequin Challenge where people imitate mannequins and freeze in front of the camera, a new trend.

That is my problem with Letizia indeed. With her eternal skin-tight dresses, her non-verbal communication (or the lack of it), her flatter-than-flat profile. Come on, show the world Letizia! You are the Queen!
