One can hardly say there has been too many engagements when it is the first one after the vacation I agree with donnak its the hair which drags her down, it is nicely cut and mantained but it simply does not suit her. The badly cut dress in drab, cold color does not help either, and those particular shoes always reminds me of Minnie Mouse. She looked stunning in the wedding though, the curls made the hair shorter and added volume and the warm color of the dress complemented her skin color.

Well, we will have the whole autuum and winter for "skirt and jacket" outfits, so we should be happy to see her still in summer dresses This gray one is surely not my favourite, byt during the wedding she looked so fabulous, that as for me, for the next week she can wear what she wants

What I liked about this green dress was the fact that it matched the uniforms used by the people of this institution... I think it was a very nice touch from her.

She is not supposed to be discreet and low-profile. She is there honoring the organization, its residents and staff for their work. She looks special and that is an honor toward the hosts.

I'm sure the organization is very grateful that Letizia worn a classic and discret dress for the occasion.

With her presence she's honouring the job done and the efforts put by the organization to give these youngs and adults a life as normal as they could have if they didn't suffered the Syndrome.

I'm not big fan of dresses, I love two pieces suits but like LaChicaM says there's plenty time for it... also I enjoyed the Princess choice of low-profile hair but I agree with Larzen, doesn't make her glow like some other hair-dos.

Thank you for sharing more photos and articles, lula!

Regards,
mtbcm :)

Thanks for the pics and video. I love how kind the princes are with the people in Asnimo. It's too bad we can't see more of Leonor in the video, but it's a great video anyway. Thanks Lula

This question may have been asked before, if so I appologise.
Why are Felipe and Letizia sometimes referred to as Don and Dona, is this Mr and Mrs? Prince and Princess?
Thanks in advance,
Crisscross1
