i agree with eclipsing but not because of colour but because of a rather indecently accentuated bust. perhaps one should speak of "sticking out" rather than exclipsing among the usually decently and modestly dressed royal ladies. indeed, it is the colour that can make a royal evening gown stick out, not the amount of flesh of bust shown...i read in the interview with mary's dress designer that he also was surprised about the body-conscious appearance of the future spanish crown princess.

facit: colour: YES!!!! figure-hugging gowns: NO!!!

I didn't say she eclipsed Mary; no one could have eclipsed her on her own wedding day, all I said was that it "could have". Maybe it's because I just don't like Letizia, period, but to me, the choice of the color wasn't something that should have been worn at a wedding. Color is fine, but 'bright' is something that I am a little wary of.
I agree, it was a great dress just the wrong function.

Besides she was not married yet and I assume she would listen to the advice of her future mother in law (and probably stilll does) and would never wear anything even slightly unappropriate at such an important event.
My thoughts exactly, this was Letizia's debut in the royal scene, they would never let her use something that was inappropriate for the occasion.

I guess its pretty out of proportion here to mention that Letizia supposedly was "overshowing flesh" and not decently dressed. The dress's cleavage was, in my opinion, demure. If you take a closer look at Mary's wedding gown, you'll notice that the bride was showing the same amount or even more flesh than Letizia in her cleavage.

I absolutely agree with you and Letizia carried it with much dignity and elegance... and it was surely much more appropriate, than the one Madeleine wore at the most official night in Sweden...

From Que Me Dices (in Spanish): http://www.quemedices.wanadoo.es/reportajes/2534_1.html

Princess Letizia wants to get back to work
Don Felipe's wife, wishing an independent schedule, could get back to work with something related to her previous career in journalism.

It has always been said that she's a journalist with guts, independent, cultured and hard working.

Because of that, Letizia, only seven months after becoming the Princess of Asturias, could get back to work.

She would be away from the cameras, but it's speculated that there is the possibility of her accepting the Honor Presidence of some official office related with journalism.

With that, Don Felipe's wife would have her own schedule and would be able to attend events by herself.

Until now, her schedule is tied to the prince's

'A journalist with guts'

Without any doubts, she feels much more confident now and enjoy her new role as future queen of Spain, according to some of her friends at El Mundo.

Letizia has always stood out because of her working capacity, first at the American network Bloomberg and later at CNN Plus.

An ambitious professional, in 2000, she started working in Televisión Española, where she presented the Telediario Segunda Edición together with Alfredo Urdaci and the Informe Semanal.

She has also presented the Telediario Matinal, the special features about the euro and was a correspondant in several countries.

1. With 32, the Princess of Asturias has become the greatest support to her husband.

2. Together with Urdaci, presenting an informativo

although in german and despite the nastiness of the subject, enjoy this article in a typically german fashion, but almost funny...:-)

www.bunte.de writes:
Ist Spanien nicht das fröhliche Land der Sonnenstrände, des "Olé!" und des Flamencos? Und Holland das Land der melancholischen Windmühlen, des Käses ohne Löcher und der Zigarre rauchenden Frauen? Mag sein, aber aktuell ist Spanien das Land einer zunehmend genervten Prinzessin Letizia (32), die wie eine in den Palast transportierte Legehenne Nachwuchs produzieren soll. Und Holland ist das Land der drallen Máxima (33), die ständig lacht und allmählich so aussieht, als sei sie die Tochter ihrer Schwiegermutter, Königin Beatrix, und die Schwester ihres Mannes, Thronfolger Willem Alexander. Und die problemlos die nächste Königin, eine Buddha-Tochter namens Amalia, geboren hat – und nun schon wieder schwanger ist bis Juli 2005.
"Wo bleibt denn der Nachwuchs?"
Etwas über sieben Monate ist Letizia mit dem schönen Felipe (36) verheiratet, aber wo immer sie auftritt, ertönt es aus dem Volk: "Wo bleibt denn der Nachwuchs?" Immer und immer wieder. Von Cadiz bis Bilbao. Das nervt die einst so hartgesottene Nachrichtenjournalistin beim spanischen Staatsfernsehen TVE. Kürzlich erschien sogar eine verletzende Karikatur in einer Madrider Zeitung: König Juan Carlos sitzt auf einem Baum vor dem Schlafzimmer des Paares, hält ein Schild hoch – und darauf steht: "Felipe, du schaffst es!"
Spaniens Monarchisten machen sich große Sorgen
Letizia lässt das nicht kalt, "kein Wunder, dass sie angespannt und gestresst wirkt", wie die Zeitung "El Periodico" schrieb. Deren Kommentator schimpfte: "Wie kann man eine so intime Angelegenheit wie die Empfängnis derart zu einem öffentlichen Thema machen? Erbfolge hin, Erbfolge her." Aber selbst königstreue Blätter wie "ABC", eine Art spanische FAZ, verklausulieren bereits leichte Vorwürfe: "Spaniens Monarchisten machen sich große Sorgen." Um sich die Hoffnung zu erhalten – und Letizia auf albernste Weise zu ermutigen –, kolportieren die Spanier ständig Schwangerschaften. Dass Letizia aber eher klapprig dünn geworden ist durch ihre unglückliche Situation, wird dagegen kaum beachtet. Als wenn's das traurige Beispiel Diana nie gegeben hätte.
Máxima: Ein Brüderchen oder Schwesterchen für Amalia
Nichts von alledem bei Máxima. Die 33-Jährige, und mit ihr der ganze Hof, konnten sich jetzt sogar einen nie dagewesenen Scherz erlauben. Denn die offizielle Bestätigung ihrer erneuten Schwangerschaft verkündete dem niederländischen Volk Ende des Jahres – Tochter Amalia (1): "Ich bin sehr froh, Ihnen allen jetzt sagen zu dürfen, dass ich hoffe, Mitte Juli 2005 ein Brüderchen oder ein Schwesterchen begrüßen zu können." Das zeugt von Leichtigkeit des Seins, von monarchischer Unbeschwertheit. Sie fehlen in Spanien.
In Spanien ist Máxima die beliebteste Prinzessin
Noch eins: Máxima hat keine Konkurrentinnen. Niemand neidet ihr etwas. Das ist in Spanien anders. Schwägerin Elena gilt als ähnlich blutsstolz wie ihre Mutter, Königin Sofia. Die sich bei offiziellen Auftritten fast immer und penetrant neben Letizia stellt – aus Angst, die könne was falsch machen, heißt es bei Hofe. Elena hält Letizia für einen Gefühls-Fauxpas ihres Bruders, und selbst Schwägerin Cristina, eigentlich nett und selbst mit einem Bürgerlichen verheiratet hält Abstand zu ihr. Das schlägt sich natürlich in königstreuen Blättern wie "Hola" grausam nieder: Im eigenen Land kam Letizia nur auf Platz 3 unter den beliebtesten Prinzgemahlinnen – Máxima war die Nr. 1 und die ferne Mary von Dänemark wurde Nr. 2.

what does it say: here a summary of the most "important" points:
spain: the country of the more and more enerved letizia who is supposed and expected to produce the long-anticipated heir.
holland: the country of the feisty maxima, who laughes all the time and looks more and more like a biological daughter of her mother-in-law and a sister to willem-alexandre. further she produced withoiut difficulty the next queen: buddha-like amalia...on top of everything: she is pregnant again.

spain's newspapers are commenting on the lack of true pregnancy rumours and published a caricature of the king sitting below their bedroom window preying for an heir saying: YOU CAN DO IT, FELIP!

spain's monarchists are concerned as now even royalist newspapers write. instead of writing about the lack of pregnancies they write about new rumours on a daily basis, ignoring the fact that letizia is losing weight every day and as if the case Diana never existed...

maxima, on the contrary, could even go as far as to wrap the good news in an unprecedented joke by makeing amalia announce the birth of a future sibling.

maxima is the favorit princess in spain, before mary and letizia, who is only 3rd. further the article writes about the frosty relationship between the new addition to the royal family and her sisters-in-law...

i think madeleine's dress is ok, she is very young and beautifull and
her life is entirely different than that of the future queen of spain

do not really think that the bunte is a good source re the favorite princess in spain.

the description of amalia is cute, the rest is bit, well, german and primitive.

IMO the german press writes so often ridiculous reports about Letizia (and also other royals). A few notes of that report from Bunte I've already read in another mag. It doesn't make large fun to buy such papers.

I don't like it when Letizia does this with her mouth. It looks very weird and very hard. Not nice IMO.

considering that they take about 1000 pictures every time she appears, I think she manages to hardly ever look a bit weird (most of us would have a harder time being scrutinized so much)

Hola says that Letizia has accepted seven Presidencies of Honor and will gradually have her own agenda, during this year.

«Con el nuevo año, doña Letizia comenzará de lleno su andadura como Princesa de Asturias y dedicará su agenda a sus propios actos oficiales. El nuevo año será pues el de su salto definitivo como Princesa Heredera del reino español. Hasta la fecha, la futura Reina de España ha aceptado ya siete Presidencias de Honor que acometerá en el curso de este año».

Princess Letizia has accepted the Presidency of Honor of the following institutions: Hija Predilecta de Oviedo, de Dama Protectora del Real Cuerpo de la Nobleza de Madrid, los Actos Conmemorativos del 750 Aniversario de la Fundación de Ciudad Real, Dama de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla, el VIII Congreso Nacional de Psiquiatría, Camarera de Honor del Muy Ilustre Cabildo de Nuestra Señora de la Virgen de la Amargura paso blanco de Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Lorca, XXI Jornadas nacionales de Enfermería en Traumatología y Cirugía Ortopédica en Mérida.
However, according to the Royal House, the Princess of Asturias will not have a separate agenda so far, since the acceptance of the Presidencies of Honor does not demand her physical presence in the acts that concern those organizations.

Here is a thread in Spanish about this article in Epoca. I attempted to put some of this in free translator on the internet to understand it, but it wasn't very clear. Is this article saying that Letizia is trying to have a baby?Is Epoca a reliable magazine?

Yes, Sylvia, that is what the article says. Here's another link directly to the magazine:
http://www.epoca.es/node_464.jsp?id_..._categoria=122

It says that, during a recent dinner she had with her friends in a Madrilenian restaurant, Letizia confessed that «En enero, nos pondremos a ello...» (i.e. In January we will work on that...»)!

As far as I know, Época is a serious magazine...
