This is what Periodistadigital says about it:

http://www.periodistadigital.com/sec...ct.php?o=43529

The weekend of the engagement announcement, the Website of the TelevisionAcademy, improved from 500 to 170.000 visits per day. It was the only one which had the curriculum of the journalist Letizia Ortiz. And the interest for her continues even bigger, now that there are 107,000 references of her in Google. Also the official site of the Royal House receives an average of 10,000 visits per day, except the 22th of May of 2004, when it reached 43,300 visits. So, if you are one of those 70,000 weekly visitors of the royal website, you must have already found how obsolete it is; not only the design itself, but also the fact that the participation of the future queen is practically dismissed, as she appears is none of those 16 photos. And this is more visible, in the two family photos: one from 1997, next to a sculpture of Chillida, and the other from August of 2002. We are now in 2005, the Royal Family has increased, but the changes in the Royal Site still run very slowly. Finally, last Thursday, they replaced the photo that was taken last year. Now there she is, confortably seated in a white suit... but she continues not taking part of the Royal Family... graphically saying.

It seams the staff of the Royal Website read TRF after all... :p

And then again, perhaps not, but the truth is that, after so many complains, they finally changed that old and inappropriate family photo, at the very front page.
Now, this is the photo they placed there instead:

Indeed! I didn't realise that before, but their faces look actually terrified of our complains...

The difference is that Letizia's been thin all her life and victoria's normal weigh is far from what she looked like those months she was suffering of anorexia... If you look at some photos of the former journalist, you'll realise how she's been thin all her life.
I remember seeing a TV program, shortly before the wedding, where her colleagues talked about her and her completely devotion to work, and one of them said that, when she was accumulating report and the presentation of the main news program, he feared for her health, but she was very strong, in spite of her apparent fragility. Anyway, Letizia's weight is such an over discussed topic that it can't lead us anywhere. We're always getting in circles and everybody feels entitled to have a formed opinion about it, even if none of us know her personally...
Fact is she's said to be a good gourmet, and she doesn't seam worried to eat ensaimadas(I doubt most of us would dare to eat it...) and other high-calories things, as we have seen early in this summer... Last October, when they went to Asturias for the Prize-giving ceremony, the mayor of Aller took advantage of the greeting ceremony to tell the princess: "If you allow me, I believe that you would have to eat more" and Felipe promptly joked that the amount was not the problem: "she burns everything, she burns everything", he said. («El alcalde de Aller aprovechó el saludo de despedida para dirigirse a la princesa: «Si me permite, Alteza, creo que debería comer más». Fue un divertido Felipe quien respondió que no era problema de cantidad: «Lo quema todo, lo quema todo», dijo». :p ) So I guess that answers all the questions about her weight...

But thanks Cissan, for your kindness on sharing that article with us! It was much appreciated!

Seems that the Casa Real Website decided to finally acknowledge Letizia's existence. After changing her official picture for one much more appropriate and of changing the official royal family picture (which they could have chosen better in my opinion), the website includes an image of Letizia in the front page mosaic, the one who appears behind KJC and QS's portrait. It's in the top right.

See below:)

This is truly a sad state of affairs and is stress-related. I used to suffer from this ailment too but I've overcome. It took a long time for me to learn to relax so that my metabolism wouldn't eat me alive. I think Letizia should take some down time to look about her health. Being thrust into such a role would take its toll on anyone.

Article from Hola

English Translation in Italics

29 ENERO 2005
La Casa Real española ha publicado el primer retrato oficial de la Princesa de Asturias. A pesar de haber varias fotografías de doña Letizia, junto a don Felipe, en diversos viajes oficiales, y en compañía de otros miembros de la Familia Real, ésta es la primera vez en la que cuenta con una imagen exclusiva, realizada por el estudio de fotografía Dalda.

The Royal House of Spain has published the first official photograph of the Princess of Asturias. Eventhough there are numerous pictures of Letizia with Felipe during official trips or in the company of other members of the Royal Family, this is the first time that she has an exclusive picture, taken by the studio of Dalda Photography

En la imagen se puede ver a doña Letizia, sentada con las manos cruzadas sobre el regazo y luciendo para el momento un sobrio y elegante traje de corte clásico. Una falda y una chaqueta de manga abierta a la altura del puño y con botones forrados. Todo en tonos claros. Como único complemento, la Princesa escogió unos preciosos pendientes con forma de flor de cinco pétalos que estrenaba para la ocasión.

In the picture you can see Letizia with her hands clasped on her lap wearing a somber and elegant suit of classic cut. A skirt and blazer of open sleeve at the cuff with covered buttons. All in light shades. As the only accessory the Princess chose were beautiful earrings in the shape of a flower with five petals, which she wore for the first time.
Coincidencia en la elección del blanco
Como nota curiosa cabe destacar la coincidencia en los colores. Diferentes tonalidades de blancos, que han caracterizado a la Princesa de Asturias, tanto en los trajes que llevó el día 1 de noviembre, con motivo del anuncio del compromiso y, cinco días después, durante la petición de mano, así como en esta su primera foto oficial.

Curiously noting the coincidence of the colors. Different shades of white that are characteristic of the Princess of Asturias, are the suit she wore on November 1 when the engagement was announced, 5 days later in the official 'asking of her hand in marriage' and now her first official photo.

Al contrario de otras Casas Reales como las de Dinamarca, Noruega, Holanda o Bélgica, que dispusieron de imágenes oficiales de las nuevas princesas al poco de anunciarse el compromiso oficial o de la celebración de sus matrimonios, doña Letizia ha preferido esperar algo más de un año desde el anuncio de su compromiso, para hacer pública esta imagen.

Unlike the othere ROyal Houses such as Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands or Belgium, who released official images of the new princesses shortly after announcing their engagements or of the marriage ceremonies. Letizia has prefered to wait over a year since the engagement announcement to make public this image.

Here’s an article from the newspaper ABC, about that Hola report:


Rania de Jordania y Doña Letizia: ¿las comparaciones siempre son odiosas?

BEATRIZ CORTÁZAR/ABC

Buceando por sus archivos y encontrando las similitudes los de «Hola» publican esta semana un reportaje con las semejanzas a la hora del vestir de la Reina Rania y la Princesa de Asturias. De edad parecida y figura muy similar -entre la talla 34 y la 36- las dos coinciden en sus actos oficiales con un estilo que no deja de ser el que impone la moda que se lleva y que firman algunos de los mejores diseñadores.

Siempre se ha dicho que las comparaciones son odiosas y algo de eso hay en este reportaje. Puestos a comparar no sé hasta qué punto le gustará a Doña Letizia que la asemejen con Rania de Jordania quien, aparte de monísima, es una «fashion victim» de las que no quedan. Rania usa y abusa de los valentinos, pradas, givenchys y guccis hasta en situaciones tan corrientes como pasear con sus hijos, hacer «footing» por algún puerto donde atraque su yate o ir a una reunión de una ONG con la alta costura como bandera.

En sus similitudes está que ninguna de las dos pensó en que un día se iba a convertir en Princesa, y que ambas eran mujeres con estudios que ejercían sus profesiones antes de enamorarse y casarse con un Príncipe. En cuanto a sus diferencias... Muchas y de distinta índole. Para empezar Rania es madre de cuatro hijos -el último lo acaba de presentar-y es mucho más lanzada al lujo y al glamour que Doña Letizia. La Princesa busca más encontrarse con el estilo y la elegancia de la Reina Doña Sofía, y en esa búsqueda muchas han sido las veces que se ha pasado de sobria con el único fin de estar correcta pero no llamar la atención por su atuendo.

Desde que apareció por primera vez ante los medios el día de su pedida de mano con un conjunto blanco firmado por el italiano Giorgio Armani -que levantó algunas protestas de diseñadores españoles-, lo cierto es que la Princesa de Asturias se ha convertido en una defensora de la moda de España en claro contraste con Rania, quien siempre apuesta por los franceses o italianos a la hora de elegir su vestuario.




TRANSLATION:

Rania of Jordan and Doña Letizia: comparisons are always hideous?

BEATRIZ CORTÁZAR/ABC


Diving into the archives to find resemblances, "Hola" published this week an article about the clothes' similarities between Queen Rania and the Princess of Asturias. Of similar age and very similar figure - between sizes 34 and 36 - both attend their respective official acts dressed in clothes signed by some of the best designers and a style that can not avoid imposing fashion trends.
It’s always been said that comparisons are hideous and something of that suits this article. Once they applied themselves to draw comparisons, I doubt Doña Letizia would approve to see this comparison with Rania of Jordan, who despite being a gorgeous woman, is a fashion victim, as there are few. Rania uses and abuses of the valentinos, pradas, givenchys and guccis,even in such current situations as strolling with her children, footing by the port where her yacht is anchored, or going to a meeting of a ONG (welfare organization), hanging on the high couture flag.
In what the similarities between them are concerned, none of them could ever imagine themselves turned into a Princess, both were women with studies and careers, before falling in love and marrying with a Prince. As far as the differences... they are many and of different nature. To start with, Rania is mother of four children and is much more given to the luxury and glamour than Letizia. The Princess looks for following the style and elegance of Queen Sofía, and on that search, there were many times when she looked sober, with the only aim of being correct, but not calling attention by the clothes she then wore.
Since her first public appearance, the day of the engagement, when she appeared with a white suit signed by the Italian Couturier Giorgio Armani – fact that raised some protests from the Spanish designers - the fact is that the Princess of Asturias has turned into a supporter of the Spanish fashion, in clear contrast with Rania, who always bets on the Italian or French designers.

Sheesh

If seems tacky to compare any of the princesses, but to attack Rania while elevating Letizia, is not necessary, nor in good taste. Letizia and Rania will probably be together for many functions and Letizia, being the perceived people person, would probably not like this type of article either.

Anyway, this thread is about Letizia and so I would ask you to make comments only about the Princess of Asturias...
I posted this article from ABC, as it commented the Hola report Rchainho was asking for.
Thanks for your kindness!
