I agree with what you say LadyK. I have the same feeling now that Leonor is born.

I don't really follow the Kings' activities, but are there also Republican protestors when they do such events like this?

Yes at some time there is this type of protests organized from communist or republican groups. The Catalan and Basque independentists also do it.

In this case, last week during the visit to Móstoles, there was a problem with two young people who also were taking a republican flag. The police retained them, and later opposite versions came. The young people said that the police had treated them badly, and that they only had showed a flag. The police say that they were making a row and discussing with persons who were seen to the Princes and who when they were called them the attention attacked them and because of it they detained them. IU that is a party of republican and communist ideology denounced what had happened because the young belonged to their formation, but how they were not useful to create a scandal. Because of it they organized a protest with the visit of the Princes to Fuenlabrada.

What happened the judges will clarify. But this way they managed to put a negative note to the acts of the Princes. Though not so negative, because there were many more persons acclaiming them and was a small group the one that they were protesting.
But it does not prevent it that any of them take advantage of the circumstances to criticize the Princes. A few senseless critiques because those who effected the detention, were not a safety personnel of the Royal House, but members of the antidisturbances of the State police, who depend on the Government.

The Prince does not have problems with the scandalous republicans; education and respect has more that many of them. Last year in a visit wing University of Balearics, a group of studenst were protesting, with republican flags and saying many barbarities ... the Prince bring them over and he greeted them without any problem.

During the visit to Fuenlabrada, it was not only the emotion with which the Princess answered the questions about her daughter that called the attention, but also the bracelet she uses to remember her greatest jewel. Doña Letizia, who wore for the occasion a suit of red trousers and a matching jacket, crowned the whole enssemble with a very special gold bracelet with brilliants: one for each letter of the name of her daughter, Leonor.
The main protagonists of the first part of their visit were the children of Fuenlabrada. The Princes of Asturias visited the public school 'Dulce Chacón', in the district of Loranca, to officially inaugurate this educative centre. There, Víctor and Andrea were waiting for them, to present Princess Letizia with a branch of flowers.
As a greeting, the Prince of Asturias "hit the five" with the small boy, who seemed enchanted with the visit of both. Immediately afterwards, the Princes visited some classrooms of the centre. The little children asked the Princes about Infanta Leonor and the Princess answered she was "at home", and they presented them with a tale, entitled "Adivina cuánto te quiero" (Guess how much I love you).

"LIKE a normal day, of work ". Thus the Princes de Asturias celebrated the second anniversary of their wedding. Only this time the scene of their day was the municipality of Fuenlabrada, the third largest one of Madrid, where they shared with its inhabitants such a special date for the pair.

Behind they have left two intense years in which the dynastic continuity has been guaranteed - with the birth of Infant Leonor-. "and what will come...", added Don Felipe. The Princess clarified the situation immediately and remembered that, as already expressed the Prince, their desire is to have "more than two and less than five" children but, before the surprise gestures, adds "with calm, there is no hurry".

Doña Letizia commented how her life now "is dedicated to the children". With many of them they were speaking and joking yesterday during the visit to an infantile center. Most of the students, of three years, asked for Leonor, where she was, if they had left her with a "nanny", if she was showing any teeth ... "But how? do you already read the newspaper? ", the Prince joked

I have to say that I'm very impressive by the Princes 's behaviour and their great sens of their duties.
We can obeserve it's important, even more psycologicaly judicious that the Princes could may to give a working sens at their regal activities. The visite as those of Mostoles or Fuenlabrada are very interesting for that because ( from the outside ) we are the sensation that it's not so easy and more risquy than the traditional visits of the regional capitals for which, we can imagine all is very well planed.
I think it's a good challenge to act this event because as far as Felipe should be King of Spain he has to demonstrate all days long in front all the spagniards his quiet but acurate determination. I find that with Letizia beside him, this kind of event is a true exercise of a constititional monarch and I find them succesful.

I think so too. I've noticed with other crown princesses (like Mary) that they seem to relax after the birth of the first child. I think they are just relieved.

I do think she seems more at ease with children and that could be because now that she has her own she's more relaxed. I've known plenty of people who seem more maternal once they have their own kids.
You could also say that's as she's been doing the "job" longer, she's more idea of what to do and expect.

From "La razon": Two years as the princes

Two years like Princes

Don Felipe and Dona Letizia will celebrate today in Fuenlabrada their second anniversary of wedding

Those tender looks that were practised on November 1, 2003, when they appeared for the first time before the means to publicize their commitment, continue being immortalized in every act to which they come. The Princes of Asturias, who today celebrate their second anniversary of wedding, are furthermore happy that that historical day in which they were given " yes, I want " in The Almudena, especially from the birth of their first-born one, that in a few days she will expire seven months. Now she is who monopolizes all the "flashes" whenever she appears together with her parents, the last time last Holy Week in Palma.

Behind these days have stayed it is that the Press was following every movement of the couple. It seems that now the tranquility reigns for the Princes, though it does not remove it in order that they are dependent on what is published. The one who well knows them says that, every day, Don Felipe and Dona Letizia are interested for everything what is said on them. On the other hand, though they go months without nobody could gather images extra official, as those in which we saw them walking along a mall of Madrid together with the Infanta Leonor, it does not want to say that already they should not go out. The Princes of Asturias try to behave as a normal couple.

Between their interests one finds the cinema, because of it they take advantage of the last session of the night to see their favorite movies, and to being possible in original version. Also it is known that, occasionally, they do an escapadita to one of their favorite restaurants, Pulcinella, as the last May 5, when they appeared suddenly. The one who knows if also some night Don Felipe realizes other one of his interests, to dance salsa. As they count, he has taught Dona Letizia to be unrolled in this Latin pace.

What is clear is that the Princes will pass their second anniversary visiting Fuenlabrada. And though in the night it is not foreseen at all, probably go out to have dinner, because there is no doubt of their taste for the gastronomy, especially of Dona Letizia. And it is that in spite of the fact that during a time one spoke about her extreme thinness, her "whims" have been very commented. The last time, during her visit to Burgos, last April, to see the works of restoration of the Cathedral. The Princess had heard speaking about the reputation of the rotten pot burgalesa, she wanted to prove it and they had to call rapidly to a near restaurant in order that Dona Letizia could taste Ibeas's string beans in the hotel where they were eating.

They have been two very intense years in which the Inheritors have continued supporting a very tight agenda. Equal they have delivered diplomas in the Academy of Fine arts that they have travelled to Eindhoven to represent to the final of the Cup of the UEFA, which faced the Sevilla with the Middlesbrough. There another Dona Letizia's facet was discovered, since one saw her in the principal theater box applauding emotionally the goals of the Spanish team. In this time, it is clear that Dona Letizia has could do a hollow to her between the Spanish, but also between the members of the Royal Family. In fact, the relation between Dona Sofía and her daughter-in-law has been becoming closer, and many people say that first of all they are friends, though some of them continue thinking the opposite.

Though they have been more the intimate moments, in her new life also they have had to share both difficult days, as March 31, 2005, when there died the grandfather of Dona Letizia, Jose Luis Ortiz, which was very joined.
