I'm not lula, but I think you don't mind if I answer the question...

The two companies used catch small economizers so that they investe small amounts in stamps, with the promise of obtaining an interest of 6% over the revaluing of their products. Nearly 350000 people were affected in all Spain.
They were accused of money laundering, disloyal administration, private document falsification and crimes against the Public Property...

Dear LCM, may be we didn't read the same informations:p Mine were in relation with the Prince's visites in Latin America and how he manage his agenda to organize at the best all his meetings and how he has the good opportunities to support very well the jet lag because he didn't need a lot of rest, sometime only sleeping shortly in the plane to rest between two official acts in two different places.

But, may be at the Army, when Felipe was very young - quiet a baby - he need a lot of sleep Who knows ?

---------------------------------------------

Dear Elsa M.,many thanks for you answer, I understand it's a national large scale's scandal, burt it's always the same question, why the Princes in this problem ?

In the army?! I've always heard of his problems in the morning at Colledge time, through his teenager years...

But I do think he likes to sleep because one of the first things he said when asked about the Princes new Life with the baby h mentioned the fact that they didn't have enough sleep.

Probably Anyway, Felipe is well-known for his inpunctuality. We can see it even nowadays, when the act is predicted to start f.e. at 11.30, they come 10-30 minutes later

I love her outfits from last few weeks. Letizia looks just great again:)

Btw, isn't Leti co-ordinate with Francisco Ayala?

Letizia is looking great in all of her recent appearances. She definitely got a great spring/summer wardrobe.

I think she would look even better if she cut her hair a few inches but I guess she needs long hair for some of the delicate and complicated updo's she wears for fancy events.

Who is that nice old man Leti is embracing? I have seen him before, probably during to the official dinner offered by the Kings and Princes to writers They both look as they knew each other for ages:)


Felipe's speech (from www.casareal.es). He mentioned Letizia, who won Larra Award!:)
http://www.casareal.es/esp/cronicas/...358&padre=3353

"It is an enormous satisafaction for the Princess and for me to preside the delivery of the Prizes of the Association of the Press of Madrid. But you can imagine in a very special way for the Princess de Asturias, who in 2000 was awarded with the second Larra Prize. For that reason it gives us a big joy to be with all you celebrating the good media".

He's the Spanish writter Francisco Ayala. It's funny the way he and Letizia always end up with big hugs and kisses, every time they meet. I've seen the same scene at least two times last year: at the inauguration of the Cervantes Institute of Stockholm and at the reception to Spanish writers ahead of the Cervantes Prizes.

He is Francisco Ayala, one of the most important writers of Spain. Last year received an honoring on the occasion of the centenary of his birth. The library of the Center Cervantes of Sweden takes his name, he accompanied the Princes in the inauguration and since then providing that he coincides with them,he is very affectionate with the Princess. They have a curious and nice relation.

Thanks Elsa and lula! Anyway, it must have been a bit weird for Letizia to attened this act, now she is on the "other site". And just 6 years ago she was one of the winners... She probably couldn't expect that she will "end up" as the Princess:)

Nearly 500 victims of the fraud carried out by Afinsa and Philatelic Forum were congregated today at the Porta del Sol and asked for justice to the Princes of Asturias, who participated in an act in the headquarters of the presidency of the Community of Madrid.

When coming out of this ceremony, around the 10 PM, the people shouted in choir to the Princes: “We want justice, Felipe, Letizia!”, who greeted the people for several occasions. For more than two hours, the multitude were booing and whistling to the assistants of the ceremony, among which was the writer Francisco Ayala.
