i would have preferred letizia to make a statement and not get involved in such barbaric practices as bullfighting. i seem to recall she was an animal lover and it's a shame she is pressurized to attend these events. queen sofia doesn't attend these and i think letizia should do the same.

I like her bullfighting outfit however she could have chosen another pair of shoes. Those did not match perfectly with her suit.

I only heard Felipe loved animals when he was at the environmental project with TVE long ago. Both Felipe and Letizia are Spanish, it's normal if one or both like bullfighting that lots of foreigners probably never understand.

There are several Spanish people who hate bullfighting. I've heard that Infanta Cristina is one of them.

I really don't see the funny of it and I live in Portugal where bullfighting are very popular too.

I don't believe Letizia likes this kind of "sports"... but I don't have facts to explain why I think this, that's just my opinion. Maybe the reason is that I like Princess Letizia so I would like to not see her in this kind of shos, but somehow I understand the presence of the couple there. It was a "benefiencia" bullfighting and they wanted to give their support.

The Royal House has an official commitment for many years with the Bullfight of the Press and the Bullfight of the Beneficence (that has a long history and it was created by the Monarchy). The Queen now does not go to the bulls, but assurance that in the past had to do it more of once, she liked it or not.

The Prince and the Princess have not done a clear declaration about this topic, they are neutral and they only go to the bulls in official acts. I believe it is the way of representing all the Spanish and respecting all the options, that is their obligation.

letizia is known not to like bullfighting (or so it was before the engagement). the only two spanish royals that enjoy them are the king and infanta elena, but the rest are not so keen (or definitely don't enjoy it, like the queen).

did the princes vote in the european elections? i recall seeing the pictures of them voting for the 2004 elections.

The outfit looks so worn out. She should at least wear a skirt like the previous year. What is next ? Zara or Mango at the PoA awards ?
