I've jsut seen a video in Corazon de otono and they looked happy and healthy ! What the Princess wears look good in Tv, maybe less "old-fashioned" tha in pics. But She is not a top model and what she wears does'nt import for me because she just have to do her job of Princess, what she does very well !!

Recycled a little too much? She has only so many clothes to work with, of course we will see the same outfits over and over again. She dresses like the rest of us. I respect her for that rather than getting rid of perfectly good clothing and wasting taxpayers money on shopping sprees.

What a strang idea to say that the Princess is "old fashion" ? And according which criterium?

Fo her day duties Letizia chooz generally outfits sober, elegant and comfortable, very often as a working woman. Is a working woman has to be on the edge of the last tendencies as a fashionista woman or a woman who spent her days in fashion magazines to know how she may to dres to be remarked.

To be at the top of the fashion is not a sign of elegance, it's very well know.

I find very curios this leitmotiv about the wardrobe of the princess when she is acting her officila duties. Can you imagine one minute the critisismes of her detractors if she was woring dresses very fashioned....

If the Princess is dress for herself and her comfort she has also to pay attention to don't offend a great part of Spanish women for whomthe fashion is not the first aim in the life. Remember the polemic when Letizia in Lanzarote was dress with jeans...

I'm sorry my poor english made a confusion !

Not at all, your english is excellent.

It's me who apologize, i confess that I'm a little fed up by some remarks about the awfulness and the character old fashioned of the wardrobe of the Princess of Asturias, as if her firstpreoccupation should be at the edge of th fashion.

As Crown Princess, she dosen't to be an icone of the fashion but the representant of all the spanish woman : old, young, bautiful or not, working or not, mother or not and so on. We can discuss a long time to define a style for a princess but in mine mind the only one which is relevant is this one whic is an offense for nobody ans whic resspect her pesonality. It's the single consensus acceptable to describe the way how a Crown Princess has to dress her.

Please accept my apologize if you find my words so excessive.

That's OK I think like you ! I'm fed up with all bad critizes and rumors on the Princess. I like the spanish family and especially the princes of Asturias and I think they are both very good representents of Spain. they work a lot and seem to be so happy and over the critizes.

The "madreñas" are a footwear of wood, typical of the villages, they were using especially in winter and in rainy days to walk with the ways or the field.
In Asturias they are very typical, in the villages they continue being in use, and also they are bought as recollection or decorative object.
Those who gave them it was a reproduction in gold, I imagine that some decorative object or to use as jewel.

IMO the princess has wonderful style, but that last outfit was a bit of a stretch, even for her. I'm not sure I would have put all of those colors & textures together. As far has Letizia dressing "old fashioned", I think she dresses professionally with not a lot of "fuss". She has clothes with clean lines and nice colors, nothing too much to take away from the agenda she is involved in. I personally think that he recycling is wonderful, who among us doesn't recycle. Very down to earth thing to do, and I know that I respect her more for it.

The Princes happened during the morning of yesterday through Ribadesella Doña Letizia. A group of travellers saw in the Carmen Don Felipe leading a BMW, accompanied by Doña Letizia Oviedo Princes de Asturias were seen during the morning of yesterday way of Sardéu, the locality of Ribadesella where the grandmother of Doña Letizia has her house, Menchu Alvarez of the Valley. For the travellers who to 11 in the morning took a walk by the highway of the Carmen, very near Sardéu, he constituted a capital surprise to be with the real caravan. Don Felipe lead a dark blue BMW in which her wife traveled. Ahead and behind, several cars of escort. The trip was made with total discretion. Neither the political forces of security nor authorities were noticed. In fact, in the house of Sardéu there was no monitoring. Last night, no vehicle remained in the environs. It is not the first time that the Princes spend a weekend of incognito in the Eastern region. The past 17 of September were seen, with their Leonor daughter, refuelling in a powerboat of Colunga when they undertook the return to Madrid. In the case of yesterday, only the paseantes of the Carmen noticed of their presence, that it happened unnoticed for the neighbors of Sardéu. One loaded agenda hopes to the heir of Corona and his wife during the next week in Asturias. The Princes will inaugurate day 19 in the Field San Francisco of Oviedo the exhibition "Génesis", of Sebastião Salgado, prize "Prince of Asturias" of the Arts in 1998. The sample, framed in the acts of XXV the Anniversary of the Foundation, will be an advance in form of world-wide primicia of the project in which the Brazilian photographer works at the moment, who consists of photographing the aspects of the planet Earth which still they remain intact. The Asturian public will be able to see something more of a hundred of photographies, in black and white, until next the 17 of November. Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will initiate that day the official visit to the Principality to attend the ceremony of delivery of the awards that take the name of the title of the heir of Corona. It will be the second time that the pair presides over the act, after the year last Doña Letizia had to absent due to the pregnancy of his first daughter, Doña Leonor. In this occasion, the Asturian Princess returns pregnant from her second son. In the program they also appear several hearings and the concert of closing of XV the Week of music, that will be celebrated to the 20 hours in the audience of Oviedo. As he is already habitual, Friday, day 20, the Princes will receive in hearing to the awarded ones and will preside over the delivery ceremony, to 18,30, in the Campoamor theater. Saturday they will give the prize to the "exemplary Town" of Asturias to the ocal community of Sariego

Wow, it's great to hear they are in Sardeu again! Grandma Menchu must be thrilled. Does anyone know when they are going back to Madrid? I assume they won't be staying in Sardeu until the prices Prince of Asturias.

It is strange, I am a bit puzzled. Probably have this weekend some family act or of friends. Or the Princess has decided to travel already and to remain this week resting in some calm place.

The Prince has an act on Sunday in Barcelona. But he goes only, and until Thursday that the acts of the Prizes begin he does not have any more acts. The normal thing would be that they were coming on Wednesday evening to Asturias. To travel two times in a little time time seems to be too much. Especially if the Princess is not well.

There will be necessary to wait that more it comments on the press.
