Tribute and incense. During the act of tribute to the Kings of Navarre the temple filled of incense of smoke, which slightly affected the Princess who took the hand of her husband and she leaned on him. JAVIER SESMA


Everything a gale. Leyre received to the Princes with a true gale. They underwent all the guests, but specially, as it is possible to be appreciated in the photos, the members of the Band of Trompetas and timbals of the Government and those of the Chorale of Camera of Pamplona. JOSE ANTONIO GOÑI

The peculiar ones saw the Princes "very enamored"

many of them have been going for years in search of a greeting of Don Felipe, and now of doña letizia

leyre. A hundred of people arrivals from the towns of around waited patiently the arrival of Princes de Asturias in the entrance to the monastery of Leyre and they followed to them during all the morning.

Don Felipe and Doña Letizia as soon as they had been gotten off the official vehicle when the peculiar ones began to applaud and to shout. When the Princess received the branch of flowers of hands of Saioa Lopez, girl of Yesa, all ran until the patio of the monastery, place where it would be celebrated, minutes later, the delivery of the prize Prince of Viana, of which they did not want to lose detail.

The smiles of complicity between the pair during the act were constant, specially those of the Prince, who at any moment looked for the glance of his wife. This fact caused very good sensation between the peculiar ones. "them note that very are enamored. Felipe threw each smile to her to Letizia ", a neighbor of Isaba argued, that detected that "the Princess was a little serious". A friend hers, coming from Liédena, talked back that "we can seat if we are pregnant and we got tired, but she no, so she must right to put bad face". They two and their three friends have approached this act from 1997, year in which Prince of Viana to the Pedro physicist gave itself to the prize Miguel Etxenike, also natural of Isaba. "we do not have many more opportunities to see them that close ", explained, "and we only requested that they dedicate a smile to us".

Corpus Jaria, neighbor of Javier who has been attending the delivery of the prize for 10 years, also appreciated the union between the Princes, since "they are done the one for the other". It assured that this time "I have been able to give the hand to Letizia. The bodyguards did not let to her approach, but she has stopped herself and come ", indicated. "it has been a second, but a second that is worth much", she clarified.

For the group of neighbors of Yesa formed by Mercedes, Isabel, Begoña and Jesus, to go to the delivery of this prize suppose, after six years, "a tradition". All were in agreement in that Letizia Ortiz "is to the height of the circumstances and it seems well to us that is journalist", because, "if the monarchy is not modernized, we are grasped". Also, the elegance and beauty of the Princess also motivated the unamimity in this group, who, asked for their red suit responded that "I do not believe that she has put it thinking about Navarre, since always she takes something red", assured Begoña. In any case, Jesus thought that, to the margin of the color, "she is more handsome with skirt than with trousers".

All tried to approach the Princes, but it was impossible to them to reach them. "we had already liked to give them a pair of kisses, but while the Princess took a branch in a hand and to Felipe in the other, there has been no form". As far as the for baby who waits Doña Letizia, Begoña expressed her desire of a girl , like Isabel, that argued that the princess "is a professional, and that is well. Now it must be born a girl who is to be queen ".

Begoña took advantage of the moment to also think on the children of Infant Cristina, of those who she said that "they are very handsome; they do not seem Borbones, are rather Basque ", valued. >

I completely agree with you, Lapopdiva... what a poor figure that journalist cut for herself!... So many tings she could observe about the speech and Letizia's performance, and she only has an opinion about how handsome she looked...

I don't know if it is a language thing but Letizia seems to come across as uptight.

Like the question she was asked on the previous page, asking if she had any advice for wannabe journalists. She was one for many years and becoming a Princess does not mean she has forgotten all about that time. She should have given a helpful answer, even if it was something like "love what you do and work hard". It would have been something.

I just find her answers and the way she communicates very uptight and stuffy.

Could be very wrong but it is just my opinion.

The problem is that the journalists always are with the same. After year and means, they continue it asking, has been gotten to say that it wanted to return to work like journalist. I do not know if Mary they ask to her if lawyer misses being, or to Maxima to work in a company. Letizia was journalist, but no longer is it, and the journalists must be accustomed to that.

I agree with you, Lula. Letizia does not deny her past career (which she constructed by herself and with a remarkable strength), and she already proved many times (especially, when she visits newspaper offices) that she's dealing very well with her life change. She's adapted herself to her new duties in a very pacific way, with the total support of his lovely husband, and thus with no traumas, nor regrets.
If Letizia started giving advices about her career as a journalist, it would be more difficult to disconnect her image from the anchorwoman that everybody knew. She's not a journalist anymore, and so I think sometimes it's even a bit rude that the journalists insistently ask her about the time when she was one of them...
In my humble opinion, she acted how she should act. I'm sure she would most certainly be criticised, if she started answering questions about how it is being a journalist...

But then again, that’s just my opinion too.

Princess Letizia did not attend this act after all, as the Prince attended the conference alone.

I agree with Elsa and Lula.

Letizia must/has to be very very carefull about advices or remarks that she makes.
Because everything she does is Zoomed (I invented this word now) by her fans but also by the people that doesn't like her.
For ex. if she said "I miss being a reporter it's great" the next day Peñafiel and some magazines would publish "Letizia Embaraza y Infeliz"/"Pregnant Letizia is unhappy" and they would be in it for weeks showing all images where she looked more serious.
If she said "No I don't miss it at all" the next day they would say that she was renegating her past blá blá blá. If she gave an advice but in a certain time she didn't follow it, the images or sentences would be in the press two minutes after she give the advice.

So low-profile is the best in this new "job" of her

(off-topic: I think Mary and Letizia know this very well (Maxima has, for me, another attitude) - they are both very conscient of the "size" of every move, of every expression, of every quote they make)...

The Spanish Royal Family tend to behave like that. Only The King sometimes jumps protocol and rules but we are used to him being more informal...

Regards!

The Princes of Asturias, Don Felipe de Borbón and Doña Letizia Ortiz, spent almost 24 hours in Navarre. Differently of what usually happens, this time they did not arrive at the Monastery of Leyre by helicopter, perhaps due to the pregnancy of the Princess. The Princes decided to spend the previous night in Yesa, where they arrived coming from Logroño, after participating in the acts of the XXV anniversary the Civil Guard’s Unit of Rural Action (UAR), where Doña Letizia pronounced her first speech in an official act. The couple chose to travel by car to Yesa, concretely to a hotel next to the Monastery, where they arrived around six o’clock in the afternoon of Wednesday.

After a short stroll by the environs, they had supper at the hotel and retired to rest.

In the morning, they travelled by car to the Monastery of Leyre, in order to preside over the delivery of the Prize Prince of Viana of Culture to Javier Manterola.

At 4:30 p.m., they went to Noáin, where got an airplane back to Madrid.

On Tuesday they will be in Guadalajara for the unveiling of the first annual Environmental Sustainability report (a HUGE issue right now as Spain and Portugual are both suffering masssive droughts this year--worse in some 60 years--and water and the use of water is one of the biggest poltical/economic issues in Spain.)
