I agree. Any humorous answer would have been better than what she said. That was a pathetic answer, a mistake. But only means that she is still learning. Such a radical change as the one her life undertook, so quick, in a matter of months they got married, is not easy for anybody. And then inmediately two kids. That is why she has never more had a normal weight I think, too much stress adapting to new situations. I like her and the children are quite intelligent.

But it is obvious maybe they believe, royals, that everybody in the world is interested in them, and that is not the case. A lot of people do not care at all and in many papers here their news are in the "rose" section.

With more training, she would have answered: I used to work for TVE but then got married and left the job. For instance.

She addressed the latin american reporter with the familiar form "tu" and he answered in the same way. She was dressed very casually and he did not recognize her. That form is used more frequently in Spain that in Latin America, where the formal "usted" is the rule with strangers.

I don't see what's the deal of her answer, it's very Queen Sofia's style. I pretty much foresee a similar answer from the King, the Queen or even the President of the government.
The story was translated from German, even if 'tu' was in the translated article, it doesn't mean that was exactly what had been said, not every language has the familiar form vs. formal form (I'm not familiar with German, thus I don't know). If I were Letizia, I would be surprised that a Latin American journalist among a group of the Spanish journalists were interviewing and taking pictures of her and the Prince, then suddenly he didn't know who she was .

Terra/Camps y Barberá entregarán los trofeos de la Fórmula 1
According to this article, it was firstly planned that the princes would have given the trophies at the Formula 1 European Grand Prix in Valencia, but the tragic accident in Barajas has forced change throughout the official ceremony. Still, it is hoped that today the princes would make a visit to the circuit to enjoy the races.

In what way does she look strange? I just looked at photos of when she got married vs now and lips, chin, cheeks, hair line, neck & teeth all exactly the same. The only thing different was hair style and its color. Point out difference to us.

I still have the opinion that she has changed her makeup line and application, which could give you the different "look" but people do that all the time. I don't think she looks strange, I think is has an interesting and attractive face.

And what is it that makes her look older? Any photos for the rest of us that are not as observant?

I don't think she looks older, in fact she looks much younger now compared to the farewell dinner. But I agree with Duke that something other than the nose is different- I think her lips looks bloated- is it botox?

Lips not botoxed, believe me. I don't see how anyone can say she looks 100 years older -- I just don't see it and I have just looked approximately 100 pictures of her since wedding.
