Why were they criticized for kissing in public? All these years of the press saying that the couple didn't seem to be much in love and the one rare time they show affection towards each other and they get criticized? I could see if the press's reaction was shock because such a display is so rare for this couple unlike for Cristina and Inaki, but to be criticized for it?

About Elena's hair: How come she always wears it in a ponytail? In the 80s she seemed to wear it down more often but in all the years she's been married to Jaime she mostly wears it back in a ponytail or braid. I know that he had a lot of influence with her style and clothing, did he also influence her hair? (Her hair looks like it is quite thick and a high tendency to go frizzy so maybe it's a personal thing and just easier for her?) I hope though that she doesn't become like Beatrix and Anne and end up with this hairstyle eternally.

The Spaniards are very conservative when it comes to public displays of affection. Cristina and Inaki I haven't really seen any pics of them with overly public displays of affection (PDA). Only fleeting glances and loving touches. With these two, maybe the public has gotten so used to seeing them civil towards each other that it was a shock.

Smile More Lugo Pixs

Could you all stand just a few more photos of Elena and her family in Lugo :)
While I don't really know that much about Elena, she gives all appearance of being a pretty nice person. Her husband always appear to be stressed and ill at ease. Anyway, I thought these were nice pictures of them as a family and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves....

I posted these pictures of Elena Victoria and Froilan. They were taken at an artificial ski slope located in a shopping mall (Xanadu) on the outskirts of Madrid. I actually went to this mall two years ago and it is incredible.
