It refers to Letizia's "revenge". Five years ago, she was labeled as the "fossoyeuse" of the Spanish monarchy: a divorced journalist, the granddaughter of a taxi driver, without pedigree... For Jaime Peñafiel, the devil wore heels... But now, five years have passed, the life in Zarzuela has not transformed the Princess of Asturias into a bulimic Diana (to whom she is often compared), or a depressive Masako. After an adaptation period, the princess has found her place in a stage, where every misstep is analysed by the press. After months of discussions at the highest level, she received her own agenda and the possibility of imposing her speech. Yeah, yeah, Letizia has brains.

From my limited French i think it talks about how when Felipe and Letizia got engaged some in Spain (Jamie Penafiel is mentioned) predicted that this would result in the downfall of the Bourbons - mainly due to her being a divorcee and from a very middle - class background. It also mentions that people commented how on their wedding day it poured with rain which was seen as a bad omen. However 5 years on, Letizia has grown in strenght taking time to adjust to her new role - which they believe was a sensible move and thus she has not turned into a Spanish version of a bulmic Diana or a depressed Masako. Instead Letizia is now the glamorous, chic and stylish princess which has only helped the Spanish royals to grow.

Not only that Letizia has been repeating her boring Varela frocks for months, at times on a daily basis, she also does not give support by attending important events like SIMM (she opened it last year in the green dress) or Madrid Fashion Week Cibeles, starting this Friday. As the credit crunch bites into the fashion industry there is grumpling about the obvious lack of support of the Princess who is supposed to act as an ambassador for Spanish fashion in difficult times.

She definitely does not need to attend all fashion shows just to remind them that she supports spanish fashion. We can all see that almost all her clothes are from spanish designers. On the other hand, I think it will also boost her popularity if she attend one of these shows, at least from the eyes of the fashionistas.

Bunte writes about "the new Letizia", who is slim but no skinny like before, more feminine and majestic and always very interested about her activities.

i'm glad letizia doesn't attend designer shows and catwalks. the criticism would be enormous if she did and many people would define her as shallow or superficial. since her clothes are almost always spanish, i think there's no better way than to support the industry than that one. would be great if she innovated further in her designers to include other of the many other spanish designers who participate in SIM. besides, it has traditionally been elena's and jaime's role to attend the fashion shows, which is much safer as elena will not be queen: two people interested in fashion is enough to support the spanish fashion industry.

I read that someone tried to attack the Princess and her companions during the visit to the hospital.
Does anyone know more?

Man leaps towards Spanish princess, yelling "Death to the king"_

looks like a mentally ill person caused some disturbance, said to be harmless but you never know in these situations. security will be trained well enough to deal with it.

I only heard a 55-year-old man born in Argentina, now a Spanish resident, was shouting 'death to the King'. He didn't attack anyone.

the man was in mental treatment. i'm sure he didn't mean to do that. apparently he had not taken his medicine then. i assume it must have been scary for letizia to have someone approach you and shout that though!
