Well pregnant or not, i think she doens't look as happy as in the past...there's a slight look of sadness or tiredness in her body. Perhaps they'er starting to feel the strain of the pregancy attention?

But that aside, i've always love her sense of fashion, i beg to differ from other membs who say she's starting to be boring - I don't think so, i like her clean and simple suits. The bright colours and clean straight lines.

Just lovely!

I don't understand either why people say she dresses boring when the Infantas and the Queen also prefer either skirts, blazers, and pantsuits during the day. I don't see any difference in their styles and preferences at all. The women of Spanish Royal Family are very simple compared to their European counterparts and Rania who lavish on very expensive international designers. Just my two cents.

Well, adding my 2 cents here, the only indication that there might be fire under this smoke IMHO is the fact that they've slowed down the pace. They used to have at least an event a day - sometimes two - and now their events are more far apart.

Of course that her clothes and her supposed tiredness are indicators as well. We'll just wait and see (and if the announcement is made in May, this can mean that we could have a Made in Brazil baby )

welll... i would say that her style is quite boring as well... maybe not because of the style itself but... maybe if she complemented the oufits with a nice belt or even better, a nice brooch or a foulard, as maxima and mathilde do with quite normal outfits... it would look much better.

I am sure you all are going to kill me, but I preffer to see her in skirts and dresses. Pants don't suit her at all due to the way her legs look. somewhat apart. Also, on the last gray suit she used with him as well, she emulated his manerisnms too much. such as crossing her arms in from. he does that alot and that takes away from her feminism form. One thing I admired a lot from Diana was her way she stood in front of other in public. she was always in total control of her surroundings and well aware of her image. I also know that Letizia is new at this, but not that new. She was a news reporter and that brupt attitute she learned at her job doesn't fit her anymore.

She needs to show more humbleness. For a strong character presence, her husband can do that job. He was trained for it.

have a nice weekend guys. I got to take my six kids out for pizza and pasta!!

I just found this photo. It is from Letizia's grandfathers funeral. Not only was there a flower arrangment from Felipe and Letizia (which Anna had posted a pic of at the time of the funeral) but there was also an arrangement from the royal family. It is kinda hard to see where it says "familia real" on the ribbon because of the sun glare but the caption did say it was from the family.

As I said "It's been said" i.e. it's a rumour, b/c people are counting time based on the expected due date

You are not considering here the individual dutties of the Prince, nor all the days of cabinet preparation the acts imply, namely the trips abroad.
But I understand what you mean... as Anna pointed out, they have clearly slow down their frenetic rythm, in the last couple of months (who knows if it isn't due to the supposed pregnancy :P)...

well... the trips abroad are also counted there :) but i dont know what you mean with individual duties. felipe hasn't done much alone since he is married and i guess he attended 2 or 3, at the most, militar engagements. letizia has done only one solo engagement, and that was last year.

i will try to count the engagements of the past year to compare if they actually slowed down in their roayl duties...
