The woman who wrote that is a gossip columnists, so who knows if it's true or not--only time will tell. The only party related stuff I've read about in news sources is that they threw a "thank-you" reception for the people of the Zarzuela staff, the National Patrimony staff and the Royal Guard who partcipated in the planning and organization of their wedding; I also read that they plan to celebrate her birthday tomorrow quietly at home with family. But that's all I've read.

el confidencial digital is not a very reliable source of information. however, i've also read that in other (more serious) papers. they were planning to do something like that.

I can't recall if this picture was posted but I really like this picture. They both seem so natural and relaxed.

The following pics are from the official Casa Real website. I like Letizia's simple and classic style. She plays it safe but looks very stylish nonetheless:

Thumbs up

Thanks Balqis for posting those pics..
=====
I always find Letizia elegant whether in formal or in casual.....she does not just jump from one style to another and trying to find her way.....I think she is clear about what she wants and has a great sense of style..

I just read that the trip to the USA is on October 3, but it didn't say for how many days. Their activities will be cultural, and they will visit New Mexico, Washington and New York City.

I also read--from a less reliable source--that they are in the midst of planning official visits to the different Autonomous Regions in Spain.

the best royal families are dull and the Spanish Royals know this as no others. (I think I like the Spanish most of all, except when they visit bull fights)

Talking about what someone have already said, the Spanish Royal Family is really down to earth. I think that they're close to their subjects and it's difficult to see (please correct me if I'm wrong) the other royal families acting so relaxed near their grandchildren.

Froilán, Victoria, Juan, Pablo and Miguel seem so normal (who can forget Froilán's behavior at Felipe and Letizia's wedding?) I guess that their upbringing is really normal and they're been educated to act as down to earth as possible, to have a connection to their "subjects", to know what's going on beyond the walls of the palace.

Another thing that I remember reading at the time of the wedding in elmundo, was that, as soon as the protocol was over in the banquet, with the photographers gone and the fun really beginning, was that Cristina and Elena took their shoes off to dance and several guests followed suit. I don't know if this is true or not, but, if it is, it really shows that they're human beings, not different from us.

Sorry for the long post

Yes, I agree too!! During the funeral, they looked so touched, they even cried!! Some people critisized them for that, because they think they are royals and shouldnt show their emotions. That is not at all how I feel. Yes, they are royals, but first of all they are human beings, and they have feelings like everybody on earth. I think there is no shame to cry in public, not in such occasions as a State funeral!!

Just to say that I think it was good of them to show their emotions, as they were not "fake" ones, it showed how close they are to Spanish people.

Felipe and Letizia today attended the wedding of his paternal cousin BeTRFán Gómez Acebo Borbón married model Laura Ponte today in Segovia, Spain. Letizia wore a dress by Lorenzo Caprile.

Pictures courtesy of the Glittering Royal Events MB.

(Nice that Felipe's tie seemed to match Letizia's skirt! :) )

I will wait till we can see more pics before I pass my hmmm... "judgement"

My first reaction was WOW, very striking but is it suitable for a wedding? Is this what Spanish ladies wear to a wedding? Can some Spaniards let us know? I do like the fan and the red with black is very daring. I would like to see the pattern on the skirt more.

I liked the way she was dressed for the dinner. The wedding, well. I mean, the top and the skirt are both really nice, in my opinion, but wearing themtogether is not a really good idea, it looks kind of dull to me.

Pictures from the GREMB of Felipe and Letizia at Beltran's wedding yesterday. A very good close up of Letizia where you can admire the detailing on her skirt.

I like her shoes, they look high tech and different, it doesn't look like something she would normally wear. But I must say they look like they could fracture her metatarsals easily.

Thanks Alexandria. The embroidery on the skirt is superb. Very beautiful. I love it. Really great outfit. Not everyone's cup of tea I would imagine, but it's definitely very striking and fitting look for a Spanish princess.
