The pictures from England are quite funny. You can clearly see that it is Letizia who wears the pants in that house! I also believe the post about her saying that Felipe took too long talking to people...it seems that her title is getting to her head (maybe it always did). Little Sofia is taller than Leonor...they are both really cute. I don't like how Letizia is dressed lately. She does not look happy or put together...

how is her title getting to her head in those photos? besides, i find it horribly offensive that a woman who has a strong personality is derided and said to be 'wearing the pants'. the husband doesn't look unhappy about it. maybe he is strong enough to admire and want a strong woman?

Maxima is a strong woman, too. Mathilde and Mary as well, MM has grown into her role either becoming stronger and stronger..... a "weak woman" would not be able to do the job as a CP and Future Queen.
I fully agree with Black -- Felipe has gained a lot of personality since his marriage.... I am sure, she is all, what he wanted. That´s why he has chosen her. And I think it was for the good!

Felipe grew up with a strong mother and two older sisters so there is no surprise in him marrying a strong woman. Who would want to marry a wimpy woman anyway?

As black already said - what`s funny about that? Should Letizia be criticized for her strong personality? (if she really is as strong as she is portrayed). I have never read anything about Felipe complaining about Letizia being too bossy and that`s what matters, it`s their relationship after all. It`s not our business who`s wearing the pants.

Speculation. IF that story is true, there might have been a reason why Letizia said that. Maybe they had another appointment and she didn`t want to be late. There might be many reasons but of course for those who don`t like Letizia, it`s an opportunity to start talking about her arrogance

Felipe and Letizia preside over a dinner in his honor at the Royal Palace the first night.

It will be the second time the Prince of Asturias take so prominent a role, after it premiered in this paper last May, when the King was recovering from lung surgery, and had to receive the heads of state who were participating at the summit between the EU and Latin America.

I agree. As a youngest child with 2 older sisters who don't give the impression of being shy, retiring types themselves, he would probably not have a problem with a woman who is likely a type A personality and the oldest of her own family, aka: bossy older sister, which I can personally promise from my own experience with my own B.O.S., gets worse with age, not better.

Bossy older sister types also tend to be very loyal and protective about the people they love so he may find Letizia's forceful personality and strength to be exactly what he needs.

glad that so many agree with me.
whatever letizia's personality may be, it is quite clear from the numerous photos of the couple looking warm and close to each other (and also the numerous complaints from many of the same posters about it) that felipe rather likes it!

How can one tell from looking at the photos if a person is bossy or not?

The Hola article said that it was Felipe who arranged the trip. I don't think Letizia is the boss even at home. She is probably the COO, the executor, hubby is the 'CEO' who sets the direction. Felipe is a modest and low key person, the family pretty much follows his style. It said in the press that Felipe was jokingly calling his wife 'the boss' , if he does't have self confidence or resent being bossed around, I doubt he would have called her 'the boss' in front of their friends.

exactly my point! of course we all read what we want into the pictures we get so i can't really say anyone is wrong as such. i just dislike the idea that a strong woman is somehow bad. the whole 'well he's miserable cuz she wears the pants' business only works if we were in the 50s

Its not just judged on photos there is enough video "evidence" that Letizia is a bossy person, most notably on her engagement day where she told her husband not to interrupt her in front of the world media (after that she was "streamlined" by Zarzuela, no telling off hubby in public, no great gesture or too self confident posing anymore).

I dont mind Letizia being a bossy person at all, I think as a couple she is exactly what Felipe needed, somebody who would kick his butt from time to time because he does come across as boring, goofy or slow. He grew up among strong women and is used to being told what to do anyway.

But its too bad that a bossy woman doesnt fit the job description for the Princess of Asturias or Queen of Spain, Spaniards dont like their future king being presented like a douche by his know-it-all wife. Letizia is being called something like social climber "trepa" in Spain very frequently what probably has to do with her character clashing with her position. I dont think its about Letizia herself, its about the woman's position in the institution, just imagine Queen Sofia would say to the King in public be quiet, I am talking now, unimaginable.

A strong woman is not bad at all but there might be positions where a dominant woman is not very welcome because of the public reception and monarchy - a yesterday's instituition anyway, is one of them (at least for the female consort).
