The Kings / Royal Family Christmas Card released a bit earlier, on December 22nd, so we got few more days to wait... :)
That of the Princes was also a letter of congratulation of Christmas, in Spain the Christmas is congratulated and the New Year. The only official one that appears and the web is that of the Kings, I believe that of the Princes that last year they did not put it but it appeared in the magazines. I imagine that this week we will see them because already almost all envoys will be and always there is some magazine that obtains them. We will not have to wait very much.

Another (stupid? perhaps) article from "El Mundo" written by Jaime Peñafiel:

Already I read it, the only thing that he does is to gather the rumor that circulated along Internet a few weeks ago of which Letizia wanted to have an own office, correct it and increase it. And for his position, in his misogynous line, to say that Letizia manipulates her husband.
It of always we go. Quite very logical bearing in mind that is the only princess who does not do acts in solitarily and who daughter has had to choose as godfathers of her her fathers-in-law ... her power is evident.:p :p

Why stupid? I think he is right...she can not make such changes in the house..she is only the wife of the prince..she has to wait to be queen to make these things.
I hope the card too.

The problem is that she is not trying to make such changes... all it's happening is that she will have a person to help her with her own secretary issues... And the whole other thing is just a product of his fertile imagination

Something tells me that the picture of the card will be one of those we haven't seen from Leonor's presentation.

I don't think that they had a new photoshoot, but you never know, as last year's card came as a complete surprise...

But, according to the reports at the time, they DID take photographs outside with Leonor.

I want to be wrong, after all a baby changes so much in a month, but I have a strong feeling that I'm right (let's hope not!)

Bear in mind that the cards of Christmas send before they begin the holidays, as what at the beginning of December probably already they had to have the photos to prepare the cards and to go sending them. Let's hope that they are generous and with the postcards of Christmas they give us some another photography.

I imagine that there will be necessary to wait to Friday to see that of the Kings, it will be necessary to expect to see when they put it in the web. Tomorrow the weekly magazines are published in Spain, if already they have sent them it can be that in someone they publish someone of the postcards.

No, the man is not stupid this time. He is just out there putting up his usual exaggeration, stiring up the controversials, so that he can accelerate his fortune and fame. All Letizia wants is to have a private secretary who can handle the administrative work for her. A very reasonable request, all the other crown princesses in Europe have one.

I hope with Letizia getting a private secretary that it means that the SRF is starting to consider giving her some official duties to do on her own...not that the work she does with Felipe is unimportant, on the contrary ... but she's a bright and intelligent woman capable of carrying out official enagagements on her own...even if she starts with just a few next year!

I assume that's the case. The secretary of the Prince won't be able to handle the work for both of them, not he should.

Peñafiel is a vulture who does nothing but try to turn the people against Letizia because of her heritage; thankfully his credibility these days is very low

Since I am not Spanish, I would like to know if this Jamie Penafiel is the equivalent of the so called trashy magazines here in the US like the National Enquirer? Why does he have a thing against Princess Letizia?
Could anyone enlighten me?
Thanks in advance.

well, he calls himself "monarquic reporter" but all he does is throw critics about Felipe, Letizia, Cristina, lñaki, Elena and Jaime; he really doesn't mess with the King and Queen (he has said himself that he's not monarquic but "juancarlista" ). The sad thing is that he writes for a pretty serious newspaper (El Mundo along with El País are very important, like the Washington Post and the New York Times) so his venom is spread along Spain

Jaime Peñafiel is a journalist who always has spoken about the Royal Houses. But the certain thing is that today in day you hear speaking and is antiquated, only he is left to go for rumors and criticizes Letizia to win minutes of glory in television. His information is often erroneous and very critical with the women.
20 or 30 years ago he was a great journalist with many contacts that was working for Hola. But later he has gone of evil in worse. And now for very specialist who says to be, he is not any more than a "cotilla" that he speaks in the television, many of that read or write in this forum are better informed that he; he is not a serious person.
He believes himself with right to judge to the whole world, and sometimes he manages to insult the people, believes that he is over the good and evil, and actually he is a hypocrite.
After leaving Hola, his career was not precisely a great success. He founded a magazine that ended up by failing, and finished judged for publishing a few photos of the agony of Franco. He was writing a column and spoke once a week in a program of television, but without very much transcendency.
Now he has returned to the current importance for criticizing Letizia, and with it he earns publicity and money, and his ego is uncemented enormously.
But the certain thing is that the people are getting tired of him, and the program in which he takes part suffers from serious problems of hearing.
