Even if the lace jacket can look a little be similar they are not the same.

The first one ( for the buisenessmen 's dinner and the geronese one ) is very light and destructured . The second one is more finished, closer the body and the bottom is totally different. I think the colour too. The first one is totally transparent whereas the second one matches completly with the color pale champagne of the dress.

Generally speaking this coktail dress with the lace jacket is a true refined outfit and i think it was a hard work to do it.

I have to confessed that I'm very found of the Princess with this coktail dress and I find too that the man who accompagn her, this very tall guy, absolutly stuning:p

Thank you for the close-ups mapian.

I just love the upper part of Letizia dress on ABC event, in this close-up we can see the dress is in two tones and I like the cut and the way it looks on Letizia the upper part, even without that elegant jacket must be a very interesting outfit.

Regards,
mtbcm :)

I have to agree with those who like this dress--simply stunning and very very elegant. And of course, he always looks tremendously delicious in black tie.

Many thanks, dear Elsa M for this shot. Is the better one to show the very elegant wawes of the dress and the stuning silhouette of the Princess.

This year Letizia has wore a lot of large skirt, may be to try to mask her thinness but it's very successful and absolutly elegant and refined.This coktail dress is very good piece of her wardrobe, I'm very found of.:p

I suppose that the photos above, which show the Princess being given a book, is the one that is mentioned in this news clip as a compilation of some of her published articles in ABC. That looks like a lot of articles, which must be interesting to read to gain an insight on what were in her thoughts then. Does anyone know when and how long did she work with ABC?

Thanks in advance. I've always heard about her career as a TV journalist (though some refer to her as "a mere newsreader") and I did not realize that she had a background in print as well. Thanks again.

Does anybody have a video of Prince Felipe speaking in English? I'm just curious to see how well he speaks the language since he was brought up learning a few languages (I think).

ltd and Mari, nagore was so nice to put here a 2-parts video dedicated to F&L's 1st wedding anniversary. At the beginning of the 1st part we can see the Prince in Georgetown and listen to him speking English.

Videos about Felipe, Letizia, Leonor & Sofía

For me, his accent is more American, what can be a bit strange since he talks to his mum almost every day in English, I would expect it to be more pure and more British, but anyway, maybe he just changed it because he was speaking in America, after all. But I agree, it's extremely sexy...

The next week, the Princes have only, the 19th, an official lunch with the Kings and the Mexicain President and his wife. May it's for us the begining of their holidays. Great headacke for them because they need as every body rest but as a lot of us had noticed they have a lot of contraints as a public people, Felipe had to participe to the sailracing.
Sure that they want to stay nearest their daughter but as all young couple, don't you think that they need some days only for them; and as young couple with a baby may be they need some vacations a little far away of the other part of the family? For my part, I find that very appropriate.

Hi LCM,

Thank you very much for the link. Unfortunately I cannot seem to be able to open the file. Can you please tell me with what program you're able to see the video?

I really want to hear Felipe talk in English. Thanks

Felipe and Letizia leave to China course to Palm The Princes inaugurate the Cervantes Institute of Beijing. ADRIAN FONCILLAS (15/07/2006) Publicity Felipe and Letizia fulfilled yesterday in Beijing one of the last acts of the labor season. The Princes, which they will arrive at Majorca the next week, where Felipe will participate in the regata Breitling, concluded its official trip of three days by China after attending a representation of the Spanish company of dance Gelabert & Azopardi in the Poly Theatre Seat of Beijing. For her goodbye of China, the Princess chose a white dress with red flowers made with the silk that the wife of Hu Jintao, the Chinese president, gave to him in the Canary Islands two years ago. In these days, Felipe and Letizia have followed a tight economic, political and cultural agenda by the Eastern country. The Princes inaugurated the Institute Cervantes of Beijing yesterday, the greater one of the world, that will serve to extend the Spanish culture. The center has more than 3,000 square meters and its beginning has cost two million euros. With him it is tried to harness the Spanish language, that clears the secrecy in China, surpassed by the English, the French and the German. The Princes attended the typical dance of the Leon, that symbolizes the prosperity and the good auguries. This week several cultural acts in the occasion of the opening of the institute have been programmed, like the presentation of the first unit of the eatable Quijote and the exhibition of films of Second of Chomón with musical bottom of the pianista Jordi Sabatés. STATE HONORS The Princes were received in the evening with own military honorses of Chief of State in the Great Palace of the Town, located in the seat of Tiananmen, by the Chinese vice-president, Zeng Qinghong, and prime minister, Wen Jiabao. Hu did not receive to them to be in Russia, where this weekend is celebrated the summit of the G-8. The presents promised to take measures to reduce the trade balance, very upset of the Chinese side, and to facilitate the entrance of the Spanish companies. Princes de Asturias also were received by the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games of Beijing 2008. Before arriving at the plomiza Beijing, the Princes had been in Shanghái, the most cosmopolitan and overwhelming Chinese large city. There they inaugurated the Forum of Investments and Enterprise Cooperation in China, in which a hundred of Spanish companies and 700 Chinese have made contact with the enemy during these days. In the evening, in the capital, they presided over a supper offered by the minister of Commerce, Bo Xilai. In the act, the Prince saluted to the Chinese hearing in than a more acceptable one and he gained the first applause of the amiable concurrence. In socialist China, the Princes still more monopolized the attention of the Spanish community and of the native one, prevailed a century ago of the millenarian purple of their emperors. In Shanghái they were received by means thousand of Spaniards. Many with consortes Chinese, that insisted on photographing themselves with Felipe and Letizia. At the end of their tight agenda, the Princes in the evening undertook the trip from return to Madrid, in an airplane of the Spanish Air Force.

Yes, only they have this act. For this week the trip to Israel was programmed, but the complicated situation there did that the Goverment, was cancelling the visit last week. So they have the free week of acts.

The Cup Breitling in which usually take part the King and the prince is this week. So I imagine that after the lunch with Fox, already they change the residence to Marivent. Though the Prince (and already we will see if the Princess) will have to travel to Peru on the 28th.

On the vacations, I imagine that they will do what other summers, Majorca, some days out of Spain and if they can 4 days in Asturias. The certain thing, it is that if a normal person thinks it, it turns out to be oppressive. In any normal family, to live next to your fathers-in-law and in addition to pass the vacations with them would be considers an authentic burden. The whole people needs to disconnect and to relax, how you say the Princes are persons and as such they need time for them. But they could escape 5 days or one week out of Spain for move away of everything mad would finish.

Princes will visit Sa Pobla day 24 to receive Gold medal

Princes de Asturias will visit next day 24 the Majorcan locality of Sa Pobla to receive the Gold medal of the municipality, confirmed sources of the Balearic Govern today.
One is the first distinction of this type that grants the City council, that it created it to thank for “sensitivity” and the “affection” shown by Don Felipe and Doña Letizia in its previous visit to the population, within its official trip to the Balearic Islands made in May of the last year.
