To me, visiting newspaper offices and TV stations is no more different than a visit by Felipe and Letizia to a church, a hospital, banks, musuems, factories (like the cookie factory the King visited recently), theatres, etc. Newspaper offices are businesses in Spain, just like any other business and have Spaniards who are interested in what's going on with Felipe and Letizia like any other working sector of the country.

It would be something else if all of Felipe and Letizia's time was spent visiting only newspaper or media offices. But they seem to divide their time amongst many other organizations and charities with their visits so I don't see the problem. To say that these sorts of visits to newspaper and media offices is "excessive" is like saying visits to Mexico where they have cultural ties is "excessive."

How many newspaper and media sources have they visisted that it comes to 5 in one year? According to my calendar the year has just begun -- have they already visited 5 media outlets since January 1?
if lucys had not explained it I would understand why their visits to newspapers seems fishy. Every country has a few respectable newspapers but they are in the minority.

The dutch royals or the english would not be caught in their offices unless it was really unavoidable.

I think my previous post speaks for itself in regards as to why it seems odd to me. If you re-read my previous post I said within a year not "since this year" or "so far this year".

Their body language seems a little altered, more distant, since earlier photos. I hate to be one of those people who wastes time noticing things like this but I certainly hope they are not having any problems.

I don't think they are having problems. I watched the video and they both seemed to be having a good time. I think the diffrence is she tends to stay very close to him most of the time because she isn't really in her element. Today at El Mundo she seemed very in her element and in my opinion more interactive with others than usual.

Yes, I hate to appear trite but I also have noticed that...a bit less "in sync" than earlier.

I guess that the answer for that is that Letizia is becoming more and more confident as time passes and she's feeling much more safe and comfortable while in official engagements as well as in her role as a princess.

If you take a look at their pictures in Asturias, during their last leisure moments, you'll clearly notice that the "sync" is still there, it's just not so apparent anymore, maybe they chose that way.

I agree with Anna. As time passes, Letizia is going to feel more confident with her role as time goes on. However, we also need to remember that she was in her element at EL Mundo. I am sure there were people there that she had contact with in her jornalism days.

Yes, I agree. It’s comprehensible that they want to give a more professional/institutional image now they’re actually married and so not only a in love couple, but the future king and queen of Spain. Anyway, they keep lovingly glancing at one another:
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...chmentid=78804

Yesterday, at Elmundo, it was natural that her former colleagues were talking mainly to her and she was feeling in her very environment.

Anyway, it’s adorable how they both smile the same way! :)
