This may be a silly question, but it is brought on by my Spanish friend telling me that she doesn't know if the Queen's Spanish is good or not because she never gives public speeches. Also I know the Queen speaks English with her kids...so do you think she uses Spanish or English with Letizia? I'm just curious, so if anyone has any insight I would love to hear it!

I heard a speech once and her Spanish is quite good. I would imagine she speaks Spanish with Letizia. Of course this is speculation on my part. She's been in Spain for over 40 years. I would imagine she speaks Spanish well.

That's what I think too! I never heard a speech, but at least she knows some Spanish, because I've seen pictures of her talking with other people, so...
Now, I don't know how good her spanish is!

I have listened the Queen speaking Spanish a few times. The last time was in the Olympic Games, in Athens. Her Spanish of course is quite good, but, when she speaks, it's evident that she isn't Spanish because of her accent.
And I also suppose that she speaks in Spanish with Letizia. By the way, I didn't know that she speaks English with her daughters and her son, I thought that she speaks in Spanish with them....

sofia doesn't really have a foreign accent when talking spanish. in fact, i think her spanish is really good, although she is from greece. no greek accent at all.

Ten more... (note how, in Felipe's picture, Letizia isn't able to take her eyes off of her prince)

Some cute pics of the couple and some of just letizia...

1) preventing her skirt from flying up

2) even royals consult maps

3) buying and cooking their own fish

4) preparing for future

5-6) even angels suffer from insomnia and bad hair days...

Well, we did see her "alone" (well, with Queen Sophia) at the Red Cross "banderitas" day, in Madrid, but that's it.
Now, for really solo engagements, I think we'll have to wait until about a year after the wedding, so we should see her alone about spring/summer 2005. I can't wait!

Why was Letizia posing as an angel in those two photos? Where were they from?

It is from a short film she was in when she was in her 20's. Anyone please feel free to correct me if I am incorrect.

You are correct, Ennyllorac, she did the movie early in her life, it was called "La mirada del angel" meaning "view of an angel", a 1988 film directed by Norbeto Lopez Amado.
