I haven't seen the video, I've only read what other people who saw it said but it seems Felipe was greeting the persons who were waiting for them outside the theater (or wherever the Viana Awards took place) and a young woman among the public started talking about why there isn't a debate and a referemdum of monarchy vs republic because there is a minority(really her words ) that it's not being heard. Felipe answers that there was a referendum back in 1978 and she answers that she didn't vote or she wasn't alive or able to vote back then. She asks him to call for a referendum(he obviously doesn't have that power) and then she says he should abdicate. He says he's fulfilling his duty. The president of Navarra was with Felipe and asks her if she doesn't have bigger problems.
At the end Felipe shakes her hand and keeps on greeting other people. A friend of hers recorded it and she's been getting publicity for it. It seems it was a polite discussion.

Felipe and Letizia have offered a lunch in the Royal Palace to the General Governor of Australia, Ms. Quentin Bryce and her husband.
It's the third time they are the hosts for international guests at the Royal Palace but it's not in substitution to the King and Queen, it was decided in Zarzuela from the first moment that the Prince and Princess of Asturias would be their hosts.

IMO, the kiss looks too forced.

As they arrived apart I guess it just was a greeting-kiss like you do with friends on both cheeks, nothing special and I don´t think it is forced

I noticed the last couple of weeks that she looks different - somehow much better - not that thin in the face anymore and in a better mood

My thoughts exactly. I remember a few months ago (February?) Letizia seemed so sad that I started to feel sad myself when looking at her photos. Maybe that part of year is difficult for Letizia because it`s when her sister died. It`s great to see her happy and relaxed now. After seven years of marriage the Princes are still in love, that`s for sure.

For people who did not even want to kiss on their wedding day and who are so private, I find this kiss forced and fake. You can disagree all you want, but I don't believe that kiss for a second.

They have kissed at least three times after the wedding in public, so it isn´t a bit odd that they greeted eachother with kisses on the cheek while arriving separately. They, especially Letizia, have looked so relaxed and happy during the last weeks.

I really loved that kiss, it really made me smile. .... and I think, the way they embraced each other, really proves their warm and happy relationship. And why not greeting each other this way, if they were coming from different venues previously?
Just my opinion of course
Bye Bine
