I agree. She managed to stay composed the entire time. Can't help but feel bad for her. As Moonmaiden23 said, it's a shame JC or Christina wasn't in Letizia's place to hear this.

Letizia did handle the situation very well. I know that I wouldn't have handled it nearly as diplomatically. There is something to be said about being "there" with their people though. I do remember the bombings in Madrid and how the royal family were right there after it happened. I think that counted for a lot in the minds of many.

That is the best comment on Spain, this couple if they survive the JC and his daughter son-in-law will be the very best Spain has had in decades. May CPF/CPL stay strong and be continue to be the loving family that we see.

Can someone please explain exactly what happened? My Spanish is next to nothing and I've been able to figure out some of what went on, but would love to know the exact details. Thanks in advance!!

Infanta Cristina or Inaki would never allow themselves to be caught in such a situation,it is to the credit of the Princess on how she handled herself and her approach at such an ugly situation.

What remains of such a visit? That somebody showed interest and listened, it may be comforting in good times but in bad times with real problems at home it seems like a bad joke, especially when other family members openly don't give a hoot about 'normal folk'. therefore the royals have to live with such incidents, its not their fault but at the same time they belong to the same elite that live off people's money, being told by the politicians what to do.
This woman wanted to be heard, now many people heard about her story. She perfectly understood Letizia wouldn't solve her problem, most likely could only give her encouragement and bring publicity to the problems, she is satisfied with the outcome. Why did royals need to visit a social station ? It's about the same question about why the royals need to visit refugee camps, homeless stations, orphanages, gather at the most expensive landmark talking about poverty .

With famous people that debate will always exist, where the boundary between being involved in a cause or use as form of promotion is.

I think generally the Spanish royal family is quite prudent, they support causes without abusing of the "charitable photo".

This time the Princess was in Valencia to present awards King Jaime I awards that annually delivers a member of the Royal Family. The visit to the House of Charity was a "secondary" act, this institution was founded over 100 years ago, inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII, and visited by Queen Victoria Eugenia and Queen Sofia ... so it was also expected that princess Letizia was invited to visit the institution sometime.

Letizia seems much more relaxed on solo appearances with children. More engaged and lively. Good to see this. I think she may have found her niche.
