The princes of Asturias continue their stay in Ribadesella in Menchu Álvarez's company
Don Felipe de Borbón and dona Letizia Ortiz are happening a few days in Ribadesella in Menchu Álvarez's company. The journalists could speak yesterday with the grandmother of the Princess of Asturias, who approached to the village in car to do the buy.

Menchu commented that she was ' very satisfied ' to have the company of don Felipe and of dona Letizia and declared that ' my granddaughter is very well and the Prince also '. On having returned of the market, the ex-journalist could not clarify how much time will remain the couple, though yes she aimed that probably they will be present in the inauguration of a street with dona Letizia Ortiz's name in Ribadesella. Finally, Menchu demonstrated her happiness for the close birth of her great-grandson: ' I do not know if she is going to be a child or girl, but only to want that it comes well ', she indicated.
In the night, the princes of Asturias and Menchu Álvarez of the Valley had dinner in a known sidrería of Ribadesella, where the people were waiting for them for the door to receive their greeting. Don Felipe and dona Letizia, very nice, greeted the whole people and having gone out accompanied her grandmother up to the car. Before getting into the vehicle, the marriage greeted the reporters with ' good nights '.

This one is a fragment of an interview to the Spanish writer Elvira Lindo, is married with the Director of the Institute Cervantes of New York, the writer Antonio Muñoz Molina, and she coincided with the Princes to last year when they visited the center, also she was in the wedding.

http://www.diezminutos.wanadoo.es/re...es/1748_2.html


Antonio and you have sat to the table the Princes of Asturias. How are they in the intimacy?
- I they have very much fondness, cannot say that I have friendship because it is to there attribute to you feelings that probably you sit of a way and them of other one. She looks like to me a marvellous and very in love couple. I would wish that the titles did not exist to have a more fluid relation with them. When they say that Letizia has fallen in love with her husband because he is a prince I believe that they are wrong. The Prince is a man with whom any woman can fall in love with certain facility.

- He has changed so much the marriage as they say?
as I did not know before, do not be how he was. With us he is educated and discreetly.

- and very prepared.
- yes, he is a person very prepared, that has lived abroad in the anonymity, which has had more relations and which has married a woman who represents to the Spanish middle class. I believe in the persons, not in the institutions.

- Does dona Letizia represent the American dream?
- in America the distance between social classes is major that in Spain. But independently of it, they are a couple in love who is going to have their first son, and what I wish them it is that they live through everything coolly.

Also when the pregnancy promised to be, the declarations of the relatives indicate that it will be for these dates.

I heard it a few weeks ago but I don't know if it is true or not.

No one knows for sure since the princes said themselves that they want to be surprised at the birth, meaning that they don't want to know the sex of the baby.

Now we're just 2 months away (and some weeks). Can't hardly wait

The Princes say goodbye in Oviedo

Don Felipe and dona Letizia were useful their last day in Asturias to visit the shop of the aunt of the Princess and to greet an aunt grandmother
Oviedo, Beatriz F. MORÍN
Family day. Don Felipe and dona Letizia dedicated yesterday their last day of stay in Asturias, in this summer stage, to the family of the Princess. After passing the whole morning in Sardéu, in house of her paternal grandmother, Menchu Álvarez del Valley, and to have lunch with her to say goodbye, they left " The Arquera " with an intense typically Asturian "orbayo" who wanted to accompany them up to Ranón's airport, where they took a plane to the 9.30 of yesterday night.
Passed the four of the evening, under a gray sky, the Princes intended to Oviedo to realize two visits. They went, first, to the shop of decoration and design of Henar Ortiz, paternal aunt of dona Letizia, with whom they had had dinner the previous night in Ribadesella. Located in the center of the city, the back-room of the trade was the place chosen to share the last confidences before the item. In spite of the fact that an onlookers' couple they had realized the presence of the couple, nobody placed in front of the place.
The citizens who were passing before the shop window were not imagining that the Princes of Asturias were in the interior chatting calmly. Some persons, during the time that lasted the visit, they were observing the exposed objects, furniture, decorative elements and jewels. Don Felipe, thinking that nobody would notice their presence, was appearing and looking towards the street occasionally.
A bit before seven o'clock in the afternoon, the Princes said goodbye of Henar Ortiz, who accompanied them at the edge of the place, and went out towards the street, not without before opening their umbrellas, under one of which dona Letizia hid herself of the only camera that was waiting for them. First the Princess went out and later don Felipe, taking his own umbrella and calmer much before the aim. The two were dressing of sport, as five days that their stay has lasted in Asturias. The Princess was taking a trousers color khaki, a white jacket, shoes of brown color sports type and a purse. He, denim trousers, shirt of sleeve talks of to stripes and jersey burdeos over the shoulders. They intended towards the car. Some persons identified them and greeted them with perplexity.
They did the second stop in Oviedo, to visit the sister of the paternal grandfather of dona Letizia, Jose Luis Ortiz, deceased last March. In house of the aunt Carmina, since she is known familiarmente, they lunched a few domestic "frixuelos".
On nine o'clock in the night they came to the airport of Asturias to take the plane that had his exit foreseen towards Madrid half an hour later, putting end like that to their stay of five days in Asturias. During the week, in which they prevailed the good time, they enjoyed the coast, ate and had dinner in Ribadesella, the villa in which the Princess passed their summers of infancy and youth, and accompanied Menchu Álvarez del Valle. The stews of the grandmother and the Asturian landscape, dyeing in the last day for the "orbayo", were the keynote of a summer visit, the second one of the couple, marked by dona Letizia's pregnancy.

This one is about a house they say is likely to be bought by the Princes of Asturias. It's called "La Moría" and it's placed in Ribadesella, near Sardéu. It's a big house of two floors constructed about 50 years ago, a simple building, not sumptuous at all and located in an enviable place: a property of 11 hacres, surrounded by an impressive landscape: the beach and the port of Ribadesella on one side and the mountain on the other.



Regarding Jaime Penafiel's article... well, all I have to say is that this guy is tiringly repetitive

Peñafiel's articles every time it has less felt.

The Czech minister of foreign affairs, Cyril Svoboda, informed today that the Princes of Asturias, Don Felipe de Borbón and Doña Letizia Ortiz, will travel to Prague on September 12th, to inaugurate the headquarters of the Cervantes Institute in the Czech Republic. The new Cervantes Institute, an ambitious reconstruction of a building of gothic origin, is located in the District II, near the Wenceslao square.
