It's newsworthy for the tabloids who follow the royals' lives. There are threads and threads of royals on holidays here, many posters have also found them interesting and worthy the space.

Although, I suppose I would rather have such things be news, then something more dire. But at the same time, why should this be taking up space when the space could be much better used on the plight of the hungry or homeless?
I guess it is just the same as our "Star" or "National Inquirer" -- they would write the same type of thing. Nothing about the hungry or homeless there either. Just a bit of gossip that people seem to enjoy.

I guess, but seriously, why are we so interested in what these people eat? That just seems to me to be somewhat too curious about their lives.

Well, I would say that a foreign royal couple visiting a shopping center in a small town of the contryside is newsworthy for:
1. a local paper (first link posted by Ladyfinn)
2. a tabloid gossip paper (second link posted by Lula).

It's not like it was on the national newscast or anything... I'd say many people would also consider a waste of time this royalwatching hobby of us... and nevertheless, here we are

Exactly, and probably a few posters are interested also in what the Royals eat. What's wrong?
My opinion, of course!

How right you are -- most people think that we are rather silly to waste time on reading about royals and critiguing their activities and their clothes when we could be doing something useful with this time. Their opinion is that we are no better then teens idolizing others. People always like to feel that only their hobbies are worth the time.

I rather like to know that some royals just act like normal married couples and are enjoying their time together and don't require all the press and photos 24/7. They are, after all, just human beings.

PrÃ*ncipes de la utilidad
Princes of the utility

They want to make clear that you can trust them. Don Felipe and Letizia are making project their leadership and personality. And what most matters: slip in the heart of the Spanish.

They know that both can be useful with their mere presence, and aware of this, they do not wasted an opportunity to listen and respond to each other.But, for some time, they are not satisfied with that.They seem to be more courageous.As if they want to prove that not only is a matter of being present, but to DO.For that reason they don´t miss any opportunity to help.Felipe and Letizia happily complement themself, and it shows, much more every day.


The Princes of Asturias will inaugurate next Friday the new Hospital Universitario Ortega River in Valladolid.

Further evidence of how their presence can do a decisive finish. They can not imagine how they succeed.

(...)Increasingly, public opinion sees Don Felipe and Letizia to good parents. Slaughtered. Very close and abiding. Convinced that the main thing in life is "the other person". I said: lucky, these guys!

Gotta say Letizia looks great. Love her pants and her make-up. Very natural. If you can see her close-up pic, her cheeks seem fuller and I'm not starting another speculation about any cosmetic operation here. Just want to point out that she looks radiant. Nice start for the new year!
