The Princess' speech:
http://www.casareal.es/esp/cronicas/Acto.jsp?acto=3546


It is for me a special honour and a deep emotion to preside, along with the Prince of Asturias, over this solemn delivery of the State Flag to the Frigate "Alvaro de Bazán".

Allow me to say that we are enchanted to be here today, in this beautiful and enterprising city of Motril; a city that, in 1657, received from hands of King Felipe IV the title of "Very Noble and Loyal".

We would like to address the Mayor, the other present authorities and all the Motrileños our most affectionate greeting and our sincere gratefulness for this amiable welcome. Our gratitude goes as well to the city of Granada and its City Council, particularly to its Mayor and to the members of the Municipal Corporation, for the generous donation of this Flag, which shows, one more a time, the narrow bonds that always have been maintained with our Navy and sea.

We want, in addition, to warmly greet all those who have wanted to accompany us in this ceremony today.

On such a special day, and as Godmother of this delivery, I accomplish, with fidelity and pleasure, the order that His Majesty the King has entrusted me, to give all the members of the Navy (and, specially, all the staff of the Frigate Alvaro de Bazán) his most sincere congratulation and his closest and most affectionate greeting. His Majesty sends, in addition, his deep stimulus to you, so that you continue fulfilling with loyalty the valuable missions that you have been entrusted of, to serve Spain.

The Prince and I are heartedly united in this congratulation, which we extend to your families, whose support, understanding and affection, encourage the disciplined task that you carry out in the sea, in name of our country.

This solemn ceremony allows me to dedicate our deepest recognition to the irreplaceable work that the men and women who integrate our Navy dedicate to serve Spain and the Spaniards. With your solid technical preparation, self-sacrificing and tenacity, you know how to confront all the difficulties and risks, to fulfil the orders you are entrusted of.

Your vocation involves value, sense of honour, discipline, loyalty and comradeship, which constitute your permanent patrimony and the one of all the Spanish sailors who have made great our Navy, throughout the centuries.

Commander:

This Flag, symbol of Spain, that I give to you, represents the values that guide your spirit and your capacity to sacrifice, without any another counterpart than the satisfaction of having fulfilled your duties.

The name of your ship is also reason for great pride for all the Spaniards; a name which honours one of the most complete and brilliant sailors of our country, Don Alvaro de Bazán, Captain of the Sea and Marquess of Santa Cruz.

From your hand, Commander, the "Alvaro de Bazán" resumes the navigation in our modern Armed Forces, assuming with discipline and professionalism the security and defence of Spain, its liberties, as well as the human rights and the safeguard of international Peace and security. Thus, the Frigate "Alvaro de Bazán" reinforces the effectiveness and the prestige of our Navy.

I invite you to always be faithful to this standard, with the security which will always remember your firm commitment to serve it and to give your best efforts for Spain.

Also, as Godmother, I would like to manifest, at this moment, my commitment with all of you, by keeping a privileged place in my heart for the Frigate "Alvaro de Bazán". With that wish and that illusion, I give it to you, in the certainty that, with your good will, you will honour it.

Thank you very much.

Sponsorship and giving of the Flag battle to the Frigate “Alvaro of Bazan” by Her Royal Heighness the Princess of Asturias
Puerto de Motril (Granada), September 19th, 2006


Don Felipe and Doña Letizia, after their arrival to the wharf, were received by the mayor of Motril, Pedro Álvarez López, and by the naval chief of staff, Sebastián Zaragoza Soto. Next they were saluted by the advisor of Interior of the Meeting of Andalusia, Evangelina Naranjo Márquez; the admiral of the Fleet, Armed Fernando Vadillo; the mayor of Granada, Jose Torres Stolen; and by the president of the Harbor Authority of Motril, Ángel Díaz Sol.

After the decree honors and to review Don Felipe to the troops, the Princes received the greeting of the rest of attending civilian authorities and defense.

Their Royal Heighness occupied their places in the tribune, and, after grant leave of the Prince to the naval chief of staff to initiate the acts, the Princess moved to the hardwood floor of ceremonies. The new Flag was carried until the place of the tribune where was the mayor of Granada, that pronounced words and gave to the Flag to Her Royal Heighness the Princess of Asturias. Once the Military archbishop blessed the Flag, Doña Letizia pronounced the speech, in which she thanked for the donation of Enseña on the part of the City council of Granada and transmitted the congratulation and the greeting of His Majesty the King to all the members of the Navy, and, in special, to all the dowry of the Frigate “Álvaro de Bazán”, along with her “spirit and stimulus so that you continue fulfilling loyalty the valuable missions that you have entrusted to the service to Spain”.

Also, the Princess emphasized the value, the sense of the honor, the discipline, the loyalty and the comradeship that throughout the centuries have made great to our Navy, and emphasized the discipline and professionalism whereupon the Armed Forces assume the defense of Spain and its liberties, as well as the missions in defense of the human rights and of safeguard of international peace and security.

After her speech, the Princess kissed the Flag and gave it to the commander of the one safe of fusilade in charge of the section of Ship's crew of the Ship shout and that Frigate, pronounced a speech, followed with “Viva España”.

Once finalized the ceremony, Their Royal Heighness the Princes of Asturias, accompanied by the authorities that received to them, on board embarked of the Frigate “Álvaro de Bazán”, where they signed the honour book and conversed with its crew.

The acts on board were concluded with a wine of honor of the Ship “Castilla”, in which Don Felipe and Doña Letizia met with the assistants and whose toast was the responsibility of the head of the Naval staff.

Letizia wears the black dress she used in the visit to the Vatican with the spanish mantilla. She looks beautiful and perfect.

I see only some images in canal sur tv but before the other tv dailynews. If someone lives in Granada in the local tv has seen the all act and can tell us many more.

You can see some part of the speech in
http://www.canalsur.es/Informativos/...lm-002-LGR.htm
only press in the camera that is below the photo of Letizia.

She was nervous I think, her voice vibrates sometimes! I don't like this dress but not only for Letizia, also not for Elena, Cristina or Sofia. Anyway Letizia is very brave to make this. I can not make it!

She was wearing it last year (similar event), when she was 4-5 months pregnant and during the visit the Princes paid to Pope John Paul II just after their honeymoon.
