They said onother messageboards (Glittering royal maybe?) that it was an antique Princess of Asturias tiara that hadn't been worn in years (as there hasn't been an offical Princess of Asturias in years&#33.

Letizia Ortiz ya luce corona de princesa
Ha tenido que ser en un cuadro donde Letizia Ortiz ha lucido por primera vez velo de novia y la corona de princesa de Asturias.

La acuarela, de 100 por 80 cm., ha sido pintada por José Carlos Gracia (dcha. en la foto) e ilustra la portada del libro escrito por su hermano, el periodista Fernando Gracia (izda.), La boda del siglo. Los secretos sobre la unión de Felipe y Letizia y otros enlaces reales (Temas de Hoy), a cuya presentación ayer en Madrid asistieron personajes como Emma García (centro).

La corona que ella luce en el retrato pertenece desde hace siglos a la familia real y no se ha utilizado desde 1802, cuando la llevó María Antonia de Nápoles durante su boda en Madrid con el rey Fernando VII. Además, el pelo de Letizia aparece recogido (en todas sus comparecencias lo ha llevado suelto). El pintor aseguró ayer que el aspecto de la futura reina en el cuadro es fruto de su imaginación.

El retrato será entregado a Felipe como regalo en su 36 cumpleaños, el próximo día 30. Gracia ya obsequió hace años a Don Juan Carlos y Doña Sofía con sus retratos, también en acuarela, y es el autor de otros retratos oficiales colgados en edificios estatales.

Could you provide and English translation of that? I don't speak Spanish and I know some of our other posters do not either. It would be most appreciated. Thanks!

Translation: The tiara that she is wearing in the portrait has belonged to the royal family for centuries and has not been used since 1802, when María Antonia de Nápoles wore it for her wedding in Madrid to king Fernando VII.

The artists assures that the aspect of the future queen seen in his painting is the product of his imagination.

It didn't work. It just said something about going back to hotmail.
Hmmm. Odd. Try this:

http://letiziaortizweb.iespana.es/le...web/index2.htm

I *think* it is the same site.

Wasn't the site that was around in October but when you went to it later, it went to the Official Royal Site. No, that was another one. That one had tons of info on it.

You know what? I have no clue if it is the same site or not, as I've never visited a Letitiza site b4. Sorry.

I think people need to stop looking at royals as deities. Letizia is a mere mortal as is Felipe. And we have all done things in our past that we are not proud of. Geez.... let;s give the poor woman a break.

You know what, we ALL have skeletons in our closets and I'm sure she wasn't sitting around waiting for Felipe her whole life. She was living her life the way she's saw fit.

Yes, of course. I agree. However, will the media and Spanish public opinion give her a break? That remains to be seen. There is a propensity to go 'digging' these days.

From what I know, she is very popular with the average Spaniard, no?

My mother just came back from Madrid and she says Letizia is quite popular.

I vote yes, I believe it's Letizia in the painting, baring all, welll most of it.  I expect more things like this to be coming out about her.

Sheba
You seem to have a strong disliking for Letizia Ortiz; I based this assumption on this and other posts you have made. What has she done? Do you know her personally? Those pictures were an artist's imagination, and only that. What would the world say and find out about you if you were the fiancee of the Crown Prince of Spain?

Hello Blue and all,

I will confess that if I were Felipe's fiancee, or royal fiancee in general, my past would cause controversy. There would be threads pages upon pages long, indignation, protests in the streets, etc, lol. I would be run right out of Spain I'm sure.

I don't like her, you do, so lets just wait and see what happens next. Just as I don't know her personally, I've got the feeling other posters don't either. Therefore, the Letizia is perfect theory is just as unrealistic as the Letizia is bad theory.

I still believe Letizia posed for the topless painting. :P

" You know what, we ALL have skeletons in our closets "

Just so you all know ahead of time. That I, future prince of Sweden, have never posed topless for any painting, drawing or photo. So there you go. You could say "Ahh, the new prince. I remember him back when he was at LTR...."

Dennism, we expect a first hand report (and exclusive behind the scenes photos) when you marry your princess!

As for the Letizia contraversy, we don't know her, she's done some things that have set off royal protocol radars that some posters have. But, she's human, she's coming from an environment where she had to speak up to be heard. Felipe looks patient, so, a few rough spots aren't going to cause too much trouble, long term. I bet Letizia will turn out to be a wonderful Princess. She's got the perfect example living nearby (The Queen). Letizia would be a fool if she doesn't ask her mother in law to be for any help.

Okay. I can see that. Despite my various problems with Sofia in the past, I contend that fewer are more regal(by birth certainly) and she has been a pretty good royal. Duty and all. Married, apparently, to a cad. She's stuck by with her children.

" Dennism, we expect a first hand report (and exclusive behind the scenes photos) when you marry your princess!"

No problem. I'll make a note of that. Send photos to LTR.

Dennism- this is OT, but what problems did you have with the queen? perhaps you could pm me, or put them in a thread about HM? (Or if they're already there, direct me to where to look! :) )
Thanks.
And thank you in advance for the photos :)

Photos and a report. No problem. With permission from the princess, of course.

Oops, forgot about her.. Maybe you should ask the King for permission as well, just to be on the safe side?
