Accompanied by the president of the Generalitat, Pasqual Maragall, and the responsible for the Biodiversity of the Ministry of Environment, Jose Luis Herranz, the Princes of Asturias went to San Mauricio, from where they could contemplate the mountain of Els Encantats.
Along with them there were other visitors: the students of 3º grade of the ESO Institute of Gissona, who did not fear asking the Princes about Infanta Leonor. That’s when Doña Letizia, due to the insistence "of the children", decided to show them her mobile phone with images of the little one. In addition, Doña Letizia (wearing trousers and a green scarf) said that she had already been in this National Park, but when she was not well-known. For the Prince however, this was the first time that he visited this natural park, which reunites the greatest concentration of Pyrenees' lakes.
After knowing in situ the National Park of Aigüestortes, the Princes of Asturias, also accompanied by the mayor, returned to Espot, where an institutional act for its 50th anniversary took place.
Princes de Asturias, Felipe de Borbón and Letizia Ortiz, have visited the Bishop of Urgel and Coprince of Andorra, Mons. Joan-Enric this morning privately. Mr. Obispo has received them in the door of the Cathedral of Santa Maria de Urgell, where he waited for them next to the canons of the Cathedral Chapter. To the act the mayor of the city has added itself.
You know, I'm not really a royal watcher—I don't ever give more than a cursory look at some of the other royals, if that—but there is just something about this couple I find very attractive and compelling and interesting. I still haven't put my finger on it, but it's more them as a couple than individually. I don't know. In any case, thanks for posting all these great photos.
well said lucys.there is something about this couple make them different from other royal couples.every time i see them i love them more and more.
Thank you for all photos and information.The princes look WONDEFUL today.

The Spanish Forum Moderating Team does not want to spoil anybody's fun, but as per Elsa M.'s post (quoted below) from the Infanta Leonor thread, we have to respect the wishes of Felipe and Letizia that we'll see Leonor when they decide to present her next.

As it has been said for several times, we'll probably see Infanta Leonor, during the traditional celebrations of Easter, in Palma de Mallorca, and when her parents decide to present her to the virgin of Atocha. Any time she appears in public, be sure you'll find out about it.
I'm now going to delete all the posts insistintly asking "Where will we see her again?" or saying "I'm missing her so much!". If anyone has questions/comments about the warning, contact me via PM, as per guidelines.

Asking several dozen times and in various threads when we'll see her next will not make her appear any sooner.
As is evident from the various Spanish forum threads, the members who participate in this forum are very active and very resourceful in finding images, big or small, with or without watermarks. If Leonor is out in public, I'm certain that a member here will share the picture.
In the meantime, we can enjoy the many activities of Felipe and Letizia -- who looked wonderful in the light blue yesterday and in the apple green scarf today!
