I'm a little bit surprised by the article of "abc", not becuse it's speaking about opponants to the Monarquia, it's not the first time that Felipe meet this kind of manifestation and not thelets one, but because it's speaking about the presence of the Princess of Asturias???

Sorry, I didn't read the other article of "abc"

Adelaide, the abc copied the first news of the agency, agency that had not worried of read well the agenda or of asking to the Royal House to know if the Princess will go or not. This happens sometimes, and with so many days of rest, the descontrol of the press is habitual.

On another topic, this type of behavior is habitual between political communist, republican or independence groups ... this type of actions give them the advertising that they want and that otherwise they cannot obtain. They announce it weeks before, to create polemic and to obtain advertising.
They do it with the King, with the Prince, with other politicians, in the Parliament (the day of the Constitution many of them did not come to the receipt of the president of the Parliament.)

The certain thing is that their attitude is slightly respectful, they live in a democracy, and must accept it; they form a part of a town hall that has invited the Prince, therefore their obligation should be represent the citizens in this act, though their ideology is opposite to this presence. This is the game of the democracy. To the King or to the Prince there are visits that they can turn out to be inconvinient, there are politicians with whom possibly does not like to assemble ... but it is their obligation and they do it.

The Prince of Asturias travelled this night to the region of the Penedés to support their 'excellent' wines and cavas, and to repeat the ' confidence and the breath ' from the Wreath to a sector of ' exemplary path '.

Don Felipe concluded his second day of official stay in Catalonia with a dinner in Villafranca del Penedés, the capital of a region that lives of the culture of the grapevine and that for its ' vitality, capacity and development ' is a ' motive of pride ' for Spain.

They were words of the Prince in the dinner with which the Union Vinícola del Penedés celebrated today the first centenary of its creation, motive for which it delivered the Medal of Gold to don Felipe.

At the dinner, which took place in the sports municipal pavilion of the locality, there was present also the president of the Generalitat of Catalonia, Jose Montilla, who last night had dinner with the Prince in Barcelona.

Don Felipe, the unknown prince

One, yesterday, had the opportunity to eat with Felipe de Borbón. Or, that before coming to the sea bass to the plate with vegetables, vegetables, flowers and outbreaks, one began to suspect that this man is known little and, certainly, badly, very badly, frankly badly. And that nobody gives himself alluded. When they served the coffee us the initial suspicion had turned already into full certainty.

Besides good young boy - this way there were describing the high and seemed well young men the grandmothers of the postwar period who were singing Machín's black little angels-, Felipe de Borbón has the serene attitude, which is an indispensable requirement to convince the one who him asks of that he is sure of his answers. Answers, not monosyllables, because the monosyllable is or can be a simple exit of emergency for those to whom we celebrate his silences with this rattle of which the silences, all the silences, are wise. Answering is to fit. It is to answer. Well then, this serenity in the argued answers, crafty conciliadoras, the Prince does not lose it not even when some of them bring together before him certain republican verbs.

Beside using well the serenity, this indispensable tool in whom he exercises public trades and aspires to exercise them still major, the Prince is a person of rapid response, who does not flee of the irony. So that in the short distance Felipe de Borbón also demonstrates to possess this necessary sense of the humor, which probably is an inheritance borbónica. If the question is not prepared, the rapid and intelligent response is a demonstration of which who the release has learned to think to the speed that we demand the journalists when we ask.

The worse thing that can happen to a republican is that a prince answers him to necessary questions, that is to say, questions that treat of common and urgent realities, much better than any republicans of lounge. Then, the republican, if he wants to be sincere, is not necessary that apparent conversion to the monarchy, but yes he must admit that some princes not only calm more than many republicans but, in addition, with them, if this way the sea bass allows it, it is possible to speak without previous script of almost quite: of policies, of cavas or even of Stephen Frears, who is the director of The Queen, this movie that probably is not quite it celebrated that deserves.
