Spain’s Letizia metamorphoses from journalist to princess

Not sure whether this has been posted here, but here it is anyway

Spain’s Letizia metamorphoses from journalist to princess
(DPA)

27 November 2004



MADRID - When Spain’s Crown Prince Felipe, 36, married former television news anchor Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano a half-year ago, Spaniards wondered how smoothly the divorced commoner would metamorphose into a princess.

So far Ortiz, 32, is seen as doing a good job, though giving up her freedom is undoubtedly not easy for her.

When the couple announced their engagement a year ago, Ortiz was known as an independent-minded and outspoken journalist who had covered the oil disaster caused by the tanker Prestige in 2002 and the Iraq war.

Letizia even stunned Spaniards by not allowing the future king to interrupt her in public. “Let me finish,” she told Felipe as the two spoke to the press.

Since then, however, the woman now known as the Princess of Asturias has been subjected to what columnist Lucia Mendez described as an “accelerated depersonalization process”.

“It is not a question of whether I like it or not,” Felipe’s father, King Juan Carlos, once said. “I was born for this. And since my childhood, my teachers have taught me to do things I do not like.”

Letizia has not received such training since childhood, but she is known to be ambitious, perfectionist and eager to please.

“I want to do what Spaniards want me to do,” she has reportedly said, and has clearly worked hard to fit into the royal mold.

Since the couple’s engagement, Letizia has been coached in protocol and history, has taken on royal hobbies such as hunting and sailing, and has accompanied Felipe in dozens of public appearances in Spain and abroad.

After a few initial gaffes such as reproaching a journalist for remarks about her high heels, she has focused on smiling, reaching out to the public and behaving with dignity.

The royal family has done its best to back the future queen, with Queen Sofia often at her side and palace officials carefully spacing her public appearances.

“With time, she will be more royal than the royals themselves,” fashion expert Carlos Garcia-Calvo said.

Criticism has focused on her wardrobe, which has earned her the nickname of “the new Jackie Kennedy”, but which fashion gurus berate as boring.

Royalty experts have also advised Letizia to watch her gestures, such as pointing with the index finger to emphasize a point, which they see as revealing an authoritarian attitude unsuitable for a princess.

Such flaws will probably be forgotten as soon as the Prince and Princess of Asturias finally announce the news the press is waiting for: that they are expecting an heir to the throne.

The constant pressure to get pregnant is said to annoy the princess, who would like the public to rather take note of the diligence with which she studies the background of every place she visits.

Nice pictures, but i dont think Letizia was dressed well for a lunch with a president.She would of looked more formal and well dressed for the occasion if she was in a skirt with a nice top and jacket.She looked like she was going for an opening.
