Letizia can't help herself, can she?! I understand her perfectly, it must be overwhelming to see all those kids waiting for her... as for that Granada Girl with that album I think we should assign her for TRF .

Thank you, lula, for bringing us these tender anedoctes! Your work and sources are priceless and highly appreciated.

What a great way to start the morning... Thank You Very Much !

Regards,
mtbcm

I think it´s time to explain the use and history of " Mantilla Española"
As the military protocol marks for acts of godmothers the etiquette for, Doña Letizia was dressing with black, long garment and with black mantilla.

Though the origin is not completely well-known, it is believed that the first veils and mantles that the women were using as adornment and as article of coat, are the origin of the first known mantillas; they were used, principally, as ornamental pieces in the wardrobe of the woman.

The evolution of this article(garment),was marked by social, religious and even climatic factors. The above mentioned were visible, in the type of fabric used for his confection. In the north zone thick fabrics were in use with a clear purpose: to use as coat. In the south zone, fabrics were in use with merely ornamental ends(purposes), as the silk. In both cases, they could go finamente adorned, those of "party" that were illuminated in notable, or simply adorned occasions, those of "diary".

The first uses of the mantilla, they were given between the people(village). They were not used by the high social classes or aristocracy. They were used, mas like mantle of coat that as ornamental article(garment)without using the comb ( "peineta" in spanish).

The queen Isabel II (1.833-1.868), very fond of the use of haidos and diadems, starts popularizing the use of the mantilla, custom that prompt there adopt the women nearest to she. The court ladies and of high social strata, begin to use the mantilla in diverse social acts, which helps to give her, to a great extent, a distinguished, such air and since to come to our days (though his use is very limited and slightly widespread).

The limited use of the mantilla in epochs following the reign of Isabel II, has, between other motives, her origin in the use of other customs that the new monarches were imposing. A notable fact, he is the acquaintance as " the conspiracy of the mantillas ". A form of protest of the Spanish women opposite to the new foreign customs that there seemed to want to impose Amadeo I king of Spain (Amadeo of Savoy 1845-1890) and his wife Maria Victoria.

Nowadays, the mantilla can be seen, almost of exclusive form, in the bulls, the Holy Week and in the weddings. It is not easy to see her in other events or ceremonies

Today in day in protocol of the RoyalSpanish House, uses the mantilla in the acts of coupling, and some religious acts, specially in Andalucia.

Godmother, in black and spanish mantilla, in the delivery of battle flag to Frigate Álvaro de Bazán

Princess of Asturias Second Official Speach



The expectancy sense was high in Motril yesterday (Granada). Hundreds of villagers waited from first hour in the morning , in the port surrounding, for the arrival of Princes of Asturias to salute and to see them in person. Like in many other occasions, Princess Letizia attended next to prince Felipe an official commitment, but this time she was the protagonist: Doña Letizia went to her second act in solitaire on the occasion of godmothering the delivery of the battle flag to the new frigate of the Spanish Navy - Alvaro de Bazán, one of NATO's most modern one.

The Princes were received by the civilian authorities and military, among them the advisor of Interior of the Meeting of Andalusia, Evangelina Naranjo, the assistant representative of the Government, Antonio Cross, and the mayor of Granada, Jose Towers Stolen, that the national standard donated by its City council gave to the Princess, so that she, as well, gave it to the commander of the ship, Cristóbal González-Aller.



It praised the paper of the Armed Forces

It was her second intervention in an act witnessed by public since becoming Princess of Asturias. Like in her first, which took place in June of the last year, in Logroño, in the occasion of the delivery of another flag to the Civil Guard, Princess Letizia returned to face the experience with certain tranquillity, thanks in a great extent to her televising professional trajectory like presenter of TVE, as well as with the solemnity that characterizes these type of acts. During her speech, the Princess, of black and with mantilla, as it is traditional in this type of events, emphasized the paper of the Armed Forces "in the defense of Spain and its liberties, as well as in missions of defense of the human rights and of safeguard of international Peace and Security".

Thanks for all the pictures and articles !

Great event and gorgeous mantilla: it gives an incredibly regal impression about the one who wears it (but it's also true that Letizia has a great port-de-tête) !!
Let's not forget all those men in white uniform ! BTW, the picture with Letizia in black surrounded by all this strong and viril white () , just precious !!!

After watching the videos, I have the impression that L was much more confortable in this act than the last year (which was prefectly fine too): she was smilling and looked very at her ease !

Maximum expectation in the city for the today visit of the Princes of Asturias

At six o'clock in the afternoon they will go to the Town hall and later they will inaugurate the Vivero of companies

Great expectation in the city for the visit this evening of the Princes of Asturias, don Felipe de Borbón and dona Letizia. Their stay in Andújar comes motivated by the determination that there has put the latter year the president of the Chamber of Trade, Eduardo Criado, who wanted to give category the inauguration of the Vivero of Companies.

The arrival of Their Highnesses is foreseen at six o'clock in the afternoon to the Plaza de España, because they are going to support a meeting with the members of the Municipal Corporation and are going to inaugurate the new lounge of plenary sessions of the Town hall.

They will sign in the book of honor of the Corporation and will receive the institutional obsequiousnesses that already have been revealed publicly. A plate will be delivered to Don Felipe in sculpture, where in a face the former house of comedies appears and in other one the current front of the Town hall.

Since he remembered the mayor, Jesus Estrella, in one of the last public interventions, treats himself about an obsequiousness that it resolved the Corporation in the year 2004. There will be done to dona Letizia delivery of the reply of a jamuga, print very typical of the Pilgrimage of the Virgin of the Head and image very tied to the city.
