I've been looking at all these photos that have been posted from this weekend and all I keep thinking is that Letizia is a very sexy woman. Perhaps not a word we often associate with a princess, but there it is. She is very sexy. And together they make such a handsome couple.

Interesting points, Lucys. I have to agree with you on Letizia's "sexiness". From the video link that I posted above you can see it in the way she walks, hard to describe but she does walk languidly and with grace. LOL when you compare Letizia's walk to the bride of the day, Laura Ponte, it's so striking. I was shocked to see a professional model walk the way she did. It wasn't graceful at all.

Some upcoming activities I've read about for Felipe and Letizia:
Tomorrow they will be in Galicia; they will visit Santiago de Compostela and Vigo.
Sunday (Sept. 26) they attend the closing ceremonies for the Forum in Barcelona.
Tuesday (Sept. 28) they open a new Biomedical Laboratory in Pamplona and make an official visit to the town of Viana (they are Princes of Viana as well as Asturias).
They start their trip to the USA on October 3

Thanks for the wonderful pics and for the information.
I just like see Letizia wear more gala dress with tiaras and more. The very few time that she wear them she look amaizing.

Hello article featuring Felipe and Letizia at the wedding.

SOURCE

FELIPE AND LETIZIA ATTEND SPAIN'S SOCEITY WEDDING OF THE YEAR


20 SEPTEMBER 2004

Crown Prince Felipe and his wife Princess Letizia were amongst more than 500 guests who flocked to Spain's society wedding of the summer on Saturday to see one of the country's best-known models, Laura Ponte, tie the knot with King Juan Carlos' nephew, Beltran Gomez-Acebo y Borbon.

Princess Letiza, who has rapidly become a local style icon since her May wedding to the crown prince, showed Spanish flair in a red Lorenzo Caprile skirt and black bodice top. Her handsome husband was decidedly dashing in dark tails with a crimson tie, which made a perfect match with the princess' ensemble.

Also on the guest list for the wedding, held in Segovia's La Granja palace, a one-time royal retreat, were King Juan Carlos, whose sister Doña Pilar is mother of the groom, as well as an elegant Queen Sofia.

The royal roster was rounded out by Felipe's two sisters, Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina – accompanied by their husbands – and a close friend of both Beltran and Prince Felipe, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway.

Picture:
Felipe and Letizia chose coordinated outfits - the princess' by her preferred designer, Lorenzo Caprile - for the high profile occasion

Felipe and Letizia are in Galicia today. Apparently they are trying to quiet the pregancy rumors, cause Felipe told the press to "not fall victim to other people's rumors" and Letizia told them that after the Prince, they'd be the first to know.

I do not want to stir up trouble because I really like the Princess of Asturias but I think one of the things that have her critics labeling her as fake is that she is all of a sudden "religious".

Attending religious functions does not necessarily mean that you are religious...she might have become religious as well as she might not have...in the 2nd case, maybe she is attending just out of duty..
No one can know for sure whether she becomes religious or she does not...

In all cases, she is handling all her duties with grace and professionalism...Spanish should be proud of their Spanish princess.

I totally agree with you. I was just stating what has been commented in the past.

I always find Letizia to be impeccably dressed for her role and approaches it through her mannerisms and through her clothes with such professionalism. And there is clearly a 'professional' Letizia (like the green tweed jacket and white skirt above) and a 'private' Letizia (the fun green tank top with the same green tweed jacket to the Beltran/Barbara dinner over the weekend).

There is one thing to be said about venturing out and trying new styles now and then but there is also something for being professional in one's styles when representing a country and a role.

Letimania is in full swing. They are like rock stars! :)

But alas, the people of Spain may be divided.

Very well said Matesha! It's really something like that that was going through my mind. Letizia is graceful, nice and clearly loves the contact with the Spaniards.

What in the world does the Socialist Party agenda have to do with Letizia and Felipe?

In anycase--people on these royal boards have all kinds of opinions, but thousands of well wishers in a relativey small place like Santiago de Compostela speaks for itself.

well, it´s just something I saw. I mean the photo. And it´s connected because one of the things involved is divorce and as we know the RF has a previously divorced member in it. Church, civil. yeah. But it´s ironic because of what the caption says. Anyway, the crowds have been great. Lots of people love them!

Letizia is been giving a duty that has to be done by her and her husband. So, she has to do whether she is or isnt religious.
