I found this in hellomagazine.com

"18 DECEMBER 2003
Her wedding to Crown Prince Felipe is five months down the road, but TV newsreader Letizia Ortiz has already found a sweet spot in the heart of her future subjects.

In what promises to be just the beginning of "Letizia-mania", the Spanish public has snapped up a series of candies created in her honour.

The limited-edition almond-flavoured "Doña Letizia" bars were created by Vicente Alonso to be sold at his café in the future princess' home region of Asturias. Over ten kilos of the hand-made nougat-like holiday sweet, called turron, flew off the shelves in just a few hours.

Meanwhile, Felipe got his own taste of his bride's popularity as he met with directors of first division Spanish team Atletico Madrid. The handsome heir to the throne received a football kit, breaking into a smile after unfolding the shirt to reveal that the name emblazoned across the back read "Letizia"."

I love the colour (Australian spelling&#33 of her dress!!!

But is she wearing flat shoes? Or maybe the heels aren't high? Anyway I think she should wear higher heels. I mean I know it's probably not good for the feet and posture but we can't deny that high heels looks waaaay better - look at Princess Alexandra of Denmark who looks very good in killer heels.

Not to mention that higher heels would bring Letizia a bit closer to her man, who is vertically blessed. :P

She is very beautiful, has brains and a personality. If the Prince is happy with her that is all that matters. I don't understand why people have to bash someone they don't even know.

EL escritor Fernando Gracia, periodista, investigador y experto en la Familia Real, ha presentado su último libro, «La Boda del Siglo», donde narra peculiaridades y secretos de la relación y el próximo enlace del Príncipe Felipe y Doña Letizia Ortiz

I certainly hope that Letizia doesn't wear a veil like this on her actual wedding day. It seems so overwhelming, especially since she is sucha petite woman.

Very interesting photos! Thank you for posting them agm!

I do have to agree with Alexandria. I hope she isn't that covered up on her wedding day! She's far too petite to have that much fabric swarming around her, but the artist's work is very good. :)

That portrait of Letizia is so gorgeous! I can't wait for her to become a princess and a future queen!

I am guessing that the tiara in the painting is just a creation of the artist and not one that Letizia will actually be wearing?

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.
