hee hee but she looks beautiful, nevertheless!

thanks to everyone for posting all these great, wonderful pics! the Princes are busy as bees yet they always seem to have the energy to reach out to the people. :)

:p It's the great paradox of the beauty's canons. You have to beautiful compared with archetypes : classical as a greek antique or voluptuous Rubens or.... in this case as a fashion model... for a commercial trade mark for beauty products.

The last comparaison seems to me a little exagerated because the shot of Letizia in motion is a very good one, showing her stuning line and beautiful hairdo.

It's very funny because when the the Princess's hairdo is whithout any style or elegance, someones say she has a "sad hair", when she is wearing a pony tail, it's inadecuate, when her hairdo is sophisticated, she looks like fashion's model, and when her hair are free and moving, as for this event, she is the icon of commercial's trademark of shampoo!!! We have to hope that one day Letizia could to have a good hairdo .....:p

But, I agree totaly with you she looks absolutly beautifull

Many thanks for the link, It's very interesting to read the newspapers after the Princes's visit i even if it's the local one which shall to say nothing too negative.

And thanks you alot for all the pics, deadline and Face to face ones.

They are totaly tremandous. It's fascinating to see how Felipe looks radiant to have Letizia beside him to work. More, I find very impressive too to read that the ediles of the town recognize the Princes 's preparation for the event, it's not only a cutting ribon act......

About the inauguration of the Instituto Cervantes in Palermo, it sounds quite interesting:

http://www.cervantes.es/seg_nivel/in..._principal.jsp

June 5th, 2006
The Princes of Asturias are going to inaugurate the new Cervantes Institute of Palermo today, in the capital of the Italian island of Sicily. Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will arrive shortly before 12:30 hours at the seat, located in the desacralizada church of Santa Eulalia of the Catalans, a constructed building as today we know it in century XVII.
The director, César Antonio Molina will take part in the inauguration acts; the mayor of Palermo, Diego Camaratta; the minister of Outer Subjects, Miguel Ángel Moratinos, and finally the Prince.
After discovering a commemorative plaque, the guests will hear the brief concert "Fandango in Re menor" of Antoni Soler (1729-1783), interpreted by the group of old music Capella Virelai.
Then, they will visit the library of the center, that takes the name of the Catalan writer Rescuing Espriu (1913-1985). The Princes will know the bottoms the library and will talk with Sebastià Bonet Espriu, nephew of the writer and professor of the Rescuing Foundation Espriu. Later Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will sign the honorary book and will know the classrooms and rest dependencies. The inauguration acts will conclude with the visit to the exhibition “simulated Stage scenes”, with works of the Collection Box of Towns: 17 sculptures of artists like Juan Muñoz, Francisco Leiro, Marina Núñez, Jaume Plensa or Eva Lootz, as well as a representative picture of Miquel Barceló, complement of the work that this one made and exposed in 1998 in the own church that now lodges the palermitano Cervantes.
Between the guests they will be the ambassadors of Spain in Rome, Jose Luis Dicenta, and before Santa Sede, Francisco Vázquez, who is in addition governor to Obra Spanish Pía-Establishment in Italy; people in charge of the Academies of the coofficial languages in Spain, the presidents of the Region of Sicily and the Province of Palermo, the directors of the universities of the island and personalities of the cultural and academic life of Sicily.
The building counts in the facade, of plateresco style, with shields and Aragonese busts of kings surrounded by laurel crowns. The building is property of Obra Pía - the old church, closed to the cult from the Second World war and of the city council - the attached zones.

I was wondering, since I have seen the Prince and Princess opening all of the Cervantes Institutes, could someone give me, an American, an idea of what they are exactly? This would be much appreciated. I also would like to know if there are any in the USA?
Thanks,
Linda 85

The Cervantes Institutes are like language schools, where people learn spanish, and get to do exams that are officially recognised in Spain, the so-called DELE exams. There are many Institutes all over the world. As far as I have found, there's two in the USA, in Chicago and New York. But I could be wrong.

Besides being a school, The Cervantes Institute is a center with all things connected with Spain and its language. These centres organise special meetings, lectures, exhibitions etc. in order to propagate Spanish culture and literature.

Linda, There are a Carvantes Institute in Alburquerque, Chicago, and in New York see this web. You wiil find a link for English
www.cervantes.es


Here you Are some information about the Cervantes Institute, But in the web you will see all the that you need.

http://www.cervantes.es/docs/guias/GuiaICIngles.pdf


400 million people, in more than 20 countries, speak Spanish,
a language which is the world’s fourth most commonly
spoken and the second language of international communication.
It is also the language in which many of the great
creators of modern culture express themselves. Thus, millions
of people study it throughout the world, because it is
a practical language, increasingly useful in professional
life, but also because it is a great language of culture and a
language for dialog. The Instituto Cervantes, created by
Spain in 1991, is the world’s largest institution dedicated
to the teaching of Spanish and to the promotion of knowledge
of the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. Spain
is also a multilingual country and the Instituto promotes
this linguistic wealth. This Guide contains information on
the services available: Spanish, Catalan, Basque and Galician
courses, attendance or on the Internet, official qualifications,
teacher training, cultural programs, libraries and
documentation centers, radio and television broadcasts,
data bases and much more. We hope you will find it useful.

I love this outfit (and sandals!!!:)). She has used it before, in Oviedo, but we didn't have many pictures from this act. So it's great that she is recycling it now:)
