hehe... just kidding of course. This is all in good fun. But do you see what I mean?
I do. It makes you think, because many people don't have as nice a wedding as this could have been, and this is just one average day in the life of Filipe and Letizia.

You have some problem in which for my are the best ones? I do not discuss your preferences towards other princess; so I do not see because you must do that.

Yes, I do. And I have a feeling neither Felipe nor Letizia would have minded to have such an intimate wedding. Just them, the Priest and God!

And for a wedding bouquet that choice is absolutely appropriate isn't it?!

Regards,
mtbcm :)

P.S. - I'm going to make a confidence, there is a Royal Couple who are no longer together :(, that I'd love to see them remarrying this way :)! I'll keep praying !

while I agree its not nice to see a woman (or a man, which happen far more often) sit like a sack of potatoes thank goodness in the Nethelands, Belgium, Norway, UK, Sweden and Denmark they are more concerend with the speeches the Princesses makes, the events they attend, what they say, how they interact than how they hold the legs . Here it would be considered very oldfashioned and I belive unacceptable to have the Princess only draw attention to the Prince, very oldfashioned But different contries different customs, its a question of what one has the possibility to focus on:p

BTW I have seen CPss Victoria sit with her legs the "correct" way and you could look pretty much into her underware, I have seen her sit with the legs crossed and you could see nothing, It depends on the skirt also.

I am tired of reading so many bilges again and again.


To sit down with the united legs is a question of elegance and good education ... in Spain and in many other places .... and a basic reason has, that on having crossed the legs, the women do not show what they would not like to show.

On the other hand, it is evident that nobody seems to understand that Letizia does not occupy a background for being A WOMAN, but she occupies it because she is a COLITIGANT.

It seems that the problems with the men and the women, have more, which again and again insist on this topic, that the Royal Spanish House.
The Dukes of Palm and Lugo do not have any official function in solitarily, and his titles only will have them while be married with the Infantas. Will it be that the Royal House is a feminist? Because while Alexandra of Denmark, or Claire of Belgium, or Laurentien of Holland ... they come to official acts, or even they have own titles... Jaime de Marichalar and Iñaki Urdangarín do not do it.

Probably also it would be necessary to say that England, Holland or Denmark are feminists and Sweden, Spain or Belgium are machists or maybe feminist too ... because in the countries where there are queens her husbands are princes, and in the countries where there are kings his colitigants are queens.

Before writing it is necessary to think over the things.

No matter how interesting the conversation may be to some of the involved members, please keep in mind that this thread is about Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia's Current Events; not a sociologic debate about North vs. South European cultures. Please try to keep on-topic.

Princes Asturias will deliver on Monday award to Antonio Lopez

With a work that sinks his roots in the purest realistic Spanish tradition, Antonio Lopez will receive next Monday of hands of the Princes of Asturias the Prize of the Plastic Arts that takes the name of Velázquez, painter who has been for the awardwinner a fundamental modal.

The prize endowed with 90.000 Euros, it admits the set of the work of the 70-year-old of La Mancha artist, the classic one in his conception of the painting, in his cánones and composition, to that he is interested the reality, the objects and the events of the daily life to which he provides with a felt poetical personnel.

This is one very hard working royal couple that really live to their promise to be totally dedicated to the people of Spain and the roles they have embolied.

I really admire and respect them for their dedication, obvious enjoyment of their duties and being with the people of Spain and most importantly their love and respect for each other. It's so heart warming to see their love for each other through their body language.

I know alot have been said about the princess doing solo acts but what ever the reasons maybe - i totally enjoy seeing them together on duty and i think they do too. When i see them together on their many acts it's liking see 2 halves come together - there's so much energy and they're very much in sync...

I'll bet I know who they are, but I won't jinx it by saying. I agree that this would be a nice way for them to remarry.

Don't say a word .
But it would be really nice, wouldn't it?!



:) Back to F&L point... I understand we all have expectations towards royal couples, otherwise we wouldn't be here... some people expect to see them together, some people expect to see them going to solo acts... some people expect that they don't get bald or fat... some people are eager to see them that way so they can prove everyone that they are not Gods but human .

I personnaly like to see how hard working this couple is. I like to see Royal Couple going together to acts, whenever they don't for me is like something is missing.

I've always loved how responsible and dedicated Prince Felipe has been all his life. When he found his other first half I was happy for him because from that day he would be abble to continue dedicate to his country and his people but he would have a companion on this, not always so easy, journey.

The day Princess Letizia delivers a speach on her own I will be glad but not feeling that she won a battle... that's not the way things happen or should happen between any, royal or not, couple.

Regards and I wish you all a great weekend!

mtbcm :)

But Letizia has allready delivered a speach on her own. When she was 5 months pregnant with Leonor she did a speach the 25th aniversiry of the Unidad de Acción Rural de la Guardia Civil. I loved the speach she did, she took a firm stand against terrorism if I remember correctly, and honered the Guardia Civil for its good work.

I have seen the images in television. They delivered the prize in Velázquez's room of the Prado Museum, surrounded with his paintings, behind the Princes there was the picture of " The Meninas ".

Letizia's suit is repeated, I believe that ishe released it in the trip to Mexico in 2004.
