The Kings are in a visit of State in China, a very important visit where they are going to meet the authorities of the country and with a lot of economic and cultural interests, of China they will follow trip towards Kazakjstan in official visit.

With Leonos the maternity leave was 3 months, which in that moment had any woman in Spain, now has increased to four. Since from middle of July the Royal Family moves to Majorca of vacations, until September she will not recapture the official agenda, though in Majorca one will see her often, like every summer.

I think its bad to see anyone at such events, but i think its a good choice of Letizia attending as a CP & along with Felipe. It would look good on her behalf as attending and still on maternity leave. Its a time for support & these families need it at this time

It's a sad event to be back but there is no choice. I think that she not only wants to be there, to show her support to the families of the dead soldiers and to support Felipe, but she also has to be there. After all the critizism about attending the private lunch with the Saudi King she cannot afford not to show up. And for what reason? IMO this is an event where she should be in any case, maternity break or not. Sofia is almost 2 months old now and it won't do any harm to her if her mother is on important duty for half a day.

I think she should return to official duties slowly but she should start to attend a few!

It is not necessary to forget anything, the Kings are out of the country and it is necessary to cover their absence. For a public opinion as the Spanish, not always it is easy to understand the importance that can have the fact that the Kings are in a trip of State that goes a lot of time and effort to prepare and in which hundreds of businessmen take part in this occasion. The habitual thing is that in an act like this one the Kings are, and the Princes were forced to cover this absence ... it is more, I believe that the presence of anyone of the Infantas had not exceeded either.

Would Spain have expected that the Kings make an early return to attend (Queen Sofia did the same as Letizia's sister died)?

The Kings, and specially the King how Chief of the army they are in the habit of being in these acts, but I believe that in this occasion the logic was imposed to the emotional impact that can exist in the first moment. The Kings had just come for a trip of State to China, with big political, cultural and economic expectations, and of there they continue an official visit to Kazajhstan ... to suspend a trip like that is very complicated.

The case of the Queen was different, the first because it was a trip of another type, it was a trip of cooperation, which does not need from so many organization and infrastructure, and that the Queen can organize for another moment. In addition, it was a question of a death that it was concerning directly the family.

while it would have been a lovely gesture for the king and queen to come back as the king is the head of the military body in spain, i doubt they will with the chinese visit just started.

it's so sad what happened to these six soldiers. they were just boys aged 20 years old, and even 18 or 19 some of them. it's such a loss. i still can't explain to myself why they send soldiers with practically no military formation (at the most a couple of years for the 20 year old ones, and i believe less than months for the 18 years old soldier) to such a dangerous place as lebanon. a person who received less than a couple of months worth of training isn't ready to go to the war! seeing this, it's quite expected that such things happen. the spanish ministry of defense should consider these kind of things beforehand. while looking for pictures of felipe and letizia i saw a video of the corpses arriving at madrid's airport. no words to describe it. such a sad day for spain.

here's a picture of the princes arriving to the funeral:

Letizia looks great! She's back to her old self, minus those awful black tights!

I loved seeing them among the people there, especially Felipe. This picture was so sweet and compassionate. picture
