Ridicolous, theres no genereal rule or royal protocol for that in year 2006:) Anyone should sit as they feel comfortable, no matter whether with crossed legs or knees together, just as long as it looks allright. Royals are just normal people, who does what feels normal for them. There is no protocol for every little thing they do. Sometimes when I follow discussions here I take my hands to my head It is just like when one blamed the chief of protocol for Letizia skirt blowing up in the wind Ridicolous

You are right on only one point: there are not royal or usual protocol for a woman to seat crossing the legs when she wear a skirt.

BUT, it's not a question of confort but rather than elegancy and distinction to not cross the legs when a woman wear a skirt.

It's not at all elegant to cross the legs when you wear a skirt, all the women kwon that ( because their mother told her and they tell that to their daughter...:p ) The better proof is the Princess of Asturias herself who never cross her legs when she is wearing a skirt, but who can cross her legs when she is wearing pants;

We have to admit that tha way to seat of the Princess is very, very elegant ....protocolar or not, royal or not .....:)

Well, the-chief-protocole thing was pretty much a joke taken too much seriously by some !

As for legs being crossed or not, or the other protocole issues, you actually DO have an "étiquette" of behaving, like it or not, choose to respect it or not

There is many confusion on what it is the protocol and that there must do the persons who take charge of it. The protocol is not a series of very strict rules of last centuries , but a few simple rules of education, and a few procedure in order that every person takes place that it corresponds in all kinds of acts. Equally today in day the persons in charge of protocol of must entrust of all the details of the acts that they organize. The protocol not only exists in the royalty, there is protocol in the politics, in the company, in the sport ... a wedding, a funeral, a university act have a protocol

That the ladies should sit down of correct form, with the united legs and the straight back, it is a question of elegance and of education. Besides, of a way of preventing it from meeting what one does not have to see.

Letizia's problem with the skirt, is not a mistake of Letizia's protocol, is a mistake of the manager of protocol of the act. The managers of protocol are the persons entrusted to supervise all the details of the acts in order that these turn out to be perfect. Between the things of those who must be persons in charge, it is to know the local conditions where the act is going to be celebrated, and to be able to advise the persons who are going to come to it in order that they are dressed correctly. If the Princes were going to a place where habitually it is windy because it is near the coast, the manager about protocol of the act had to inform to the Princess and to the rest of the women that should to go.

At least this is what they have taught me in the university on the protocol...

While i agree with you that it is silly to blame anything but the wind on Letizia's skirt blowing up, on the leg-crossing thing I disagree with your "ridiculous" charicterization. It's not a protocol issue, it's not a royal issue. One of the first things you learn in finishing school, right after standing up straight and saying "please" and "thank you", is not to cross your legs when wearing a skirt. People may choose not to follow that rule, but it is, nevertheless, a basic "good behavior" rule that has NOTHING to do with royality.

Personally, I don't care one way or the other if one princess or another does or does not cross her legs, but the people who have said that it is a basic rule of "finished" behavior in a lady are not being ridiculous, they are being accurate. You may consider it an old-fashioned rule--fine--but it's still the basic rule, just like a curtsey to a monarch is old-fashioned, but still the proper behavior.

I don't believe anyone was being critical of anyone on this--someone asked a question and it was answered accurately--end of story.

Mary, Mette Marit, Victoria, Maxima, Alexandra and many many other princesses north of Spain obviosly have no problem with crossing thier legs The people of those contries have no problems with it. People here are just old fashioned and prudish and I will bet that whithin the next five years Letizia has crossed her legs several times

I do not see because you must say that; each country and monarchy have their customs. If the other princess makes a thing; Letizia does not have because to do this. She is not princess of those countries, so she will continue behaving since she has learned; and I do not see the problem nor the ridicule with it.

It is not fair to characterize the people of Spain as old fashioned and prudish. THey have their own values and traditions and and you have to respect that.

You know, looking at these pictures, it struck me... this looks like a wedding ceremony! With the white-ish dress, the bouquet of flowers, the church...
If I hadn't known this was just another official act, I'd swear they were getting married again!

The happy newlywed couple...

What about people here charactecing the non-spanish(mary, mette marit more) as the total opposite Porple especiaslly in this forum here are pretty narrow minded when it comes to different cultuers in Europe. You all think your favorite princess or your princess baby is the most beautiful or perfect on th earth. Just look at the Letizia-Filipe-Lenoer threads. I have never seen more praise of a baby. They are just normal people, nothing more and that is good:)

Letizia looks great. The more I see her on these royal engagements the more natural and happy she looks.
