A video from yesterday night
Los PrÃ*ncipes de Asturias entregan el premio Antonio Asensio de Periodismo | hola.com

Btw, I'm a bit curious about the fact that the Prince and Princess of Asturias attend the Foreing Press Association Media Awards. Consideing that there is no Spanish media awared this year and that it's and Foreing Press Associacion In London, United Kingdom..., I can understan that PoW attended last year, but I dont know which is the reason of the attendance of Felipe and Letizia.

The King and Queen of Jordan attended the same event in 2004, being an association of foreign journalists probably they invite people from different countries.

... By the way, I am so sorry to be a bit of a disappointment to you all. I can see in your eyes that you probably hoped my wife were the one to stand here now and speak to you. Well, I understand the bias for -among other reasons- she was indeed one of you, a journalist. However, fortunately she switched camp.... Sorry, your loss! ...


Maybe his wife would have loved to stand up there instead of sitting and listening

OMG who writes Felipe's speeches? It must be one of Zarzuela's grey men as the speech just confirmes what was clear for a long time, that Letizia is not allowed to speak in public as soon as hubby is around. Letizia was a journalist indeed, but becoming a princess meant Zarzuela shut her up and transformed her into a mere accessory. Felipe seems to like this role allocation so much that he even decides to stress the facts in public. Yes the Borbon men like their wives to be dutiful with the admiration look on the face but this is where it ends when it comes down to business.

He was joking that they wanted to hear Letizia instead of him.

The second, it was a joke.

Where is this coming from? He was making a joke since it's an event for the journalists and his wife used to be one of them.

Well that was a funny joke but also suprising that it was added in the speech.
I was quite suprised no seeing Letizia handing out the awards with Felipe.

At any rate, Letizia didn't seem too happy. She could indulge in nostalgia. I wonder if she misses the old times.

Jokes are always appreciated in any speeches -- cuts the dryness. Even clergy are now getting unstuffy. I even got from his words that their journalistic lost was certainly his gain [in more ways than one] and that he was quite happy about it. Anyone looking for deeper meanings is just trying to stir the pot.
