Today in a spanish newspaper continue with the rumours that she get pregant in Valencia from a clinic.


INSISTENTE RUMOR

¿Doña Letizia tiene problemas para quedarse embarazada?


Jaime Peñafiel, en base a una "anónima fuente", dijo en el programa de María Teresa Campos que Doña Letizia estaría bajo un tratamiento de fertilidad. La Casa Real lo desmintió.

22 de diciembre. La semana pasada, un rumor se extendió como la pólvora en los círculos periodísticos. Letizia Ortiz podría estar sometiéndose a un tratamiento de fertilidad para conseguir el tan ansiado embarazo.

La noticia, como no podía ser de otra manera, adquirió notoriedad por obra y gracia de Jaime Peñafiel. El veterano cronista reveló la información en el programa Cada Día.

Al día siguiente, algún funcionario de la Casa Real llamó a Antena 3 para desmentir con rotundidad las afirmaciones que Peñafiel había vertido ante una sorprendida María Teresa Campos. Sin embargo, la polémica ya estaba servida. Y es que no sólo Jaime Peñafiel ha tenido el placer de hablar con la "persona" que asegura que Doña Letizia Ortiz no puede concebir hijos y por eso recurre a la ciencia.

Esta "persona" ha departido con media profesión periodística. En realidad, sería extraño que, a día de hoy, quedara algún reportero –conocido o menos conocido-- con el que la "anónima fuente", no se hubiera puesto en contacto.

Las informaciones que ofrece esta "persona" apuntan a que Letizia Ortiz se ha puesto en manos de un reputado profesional del Instituto Valenciano de Infertilidad. Un doctor que no hace demasiado tiempo recibió El Premio Rey Jaime I, de manos de los príncipes de Asturias.

La "anónima fuente" asegura que este reconocido profesional conoce a la esposa de Don Felipe desde hace varios años, y por ende, sabe de sus problemas para quedarse embarazada. Sin embargo, los avances científicos parece que ya han hecho posible que la princesa de Asturias cumpla con su obligación de dar un heredero a la corona. Y así, la "anónima fuente" sitúa el 15 y 16 de diciembre, como días clave en los que Letizia Ortiz alcanzó sus objetivos maternales.

Lo más divertido de todo este asunto es que la "anónima fuente" actúa movida por la venganza, pero no contra la princesa de Asturias, sino contra una tercera persona que está implicada en esta historia que la Casa Real desmiente con rotundidad.

Es una historia tan vieja como el mundo. Pero a alguien puede costarle muy cara su afición por las mujeres del otro lado del atlántico, de voz melosa y maneras dulces.

A pesar de que entre los periodistas, la "anónima fuente" ha sido catalogada como una persona loca de atar, existe un profesional de la información que ya ha hecho sus intentos por invitarla a una cena íntima. Y todo con la excusa de escribir un libro que plasme las vivencias de tan singular personaje que –según parece-- tanto sabe de la Princesa de Asturias. Sin embargo, es más que posible que a este reputado periodista sólo le mueva el interés por saber más, y lo del libro sea una estratagema para saciar su curiosidad.

En fin, no se puede afirmar con rotundidad que el testimonio de esta "anónima fuente" no se eleve a la categoría de público. Algunos andan muy interesados por desvelar la historia. Como decía aquel, todo es cuestión de ponerse de acuerdo en el precio.

This article is more about what a crazy person the "source" for this story is. La Vanguardia (one of Spain's most respected newspapers) has an article that also describes the woman as a less than stable and less than credible source--she has appently emailed every reporter with an email address and continues to do so although the Royal House contacted the television station that first started the rumour to say it was false and the clinic has publically said it is false that they are treating her.

According to La Vanguardia while the Prince and Princess are trying to simply ignore all the rumours, the King is pretty pissed about this latest rumour because of the "lightness and impunity" with which it was started and with which it has spread. According to this same article, Felipe and Letizia had decided to let themselves settle into their new life together before having children.
http://www.lavanguardia.es/web/20041...172215496.html

Rumours come in all shapes and sizes. Another article I read by another of Spain's professional gossips said that Letizia was in fact pregnant over the summer when all the rumours were flying, but she had a miscarriage.

I think the best thing is just to ignore rumours. Just a few months back Mary was suppossed to be pregnant--turns out she was having a gall stone removed.

I agree whole heartedly lucys.

Pregnancy rumours about the various princesses are a dime a dozen. Just because it is in black and white print somewhere doesn't make such stories true. As a writer I can tell you that just because I write something and it prints in a publication doesn't make it more true or even credible than if someone merely whispered the same thing in your ear.

I applaud Felipe and Letizia for taking a higher road on this matter and accepting that (unfortunately) until they have a first child (followed by rumours for second and third and fourth children!) such rumours will always swirl around the couple.

But I'm with the King on this one; I'd be mighty pissed if I heard these rumours about myself or about someone I loved, too. They are not only misleading and deceiving, they are downright hurtful. Such a strain and such pressure can make conceiving more difficult or even making it through those first three fragile months more difficult. And to be so flippant as to construe various stories about pregnancies, miscarriages, infertility and what not -- matters which are very emotionally difficult if you've endured them yourself -- are extremely personal and private matters, and insensitive to say the least.

Letizia's style in votacion (La Vanguardia)


El estilo de una princesa
Los vestidos y los complementos de doña Letizia, a votación
LA VANGUARDIA - 23/12/2004
BARCELONA | REDACCIÓN

Letizia Ortiz se ha convertido en el personaje del año y en el centro de atención desde su boda con el príncipe Felipe el pasado 22 de mayo. Sus atuendos, sus gestos y cada detalle de su vida pública e incluso de la privada son analizados al milímetro. La revista ¡Hola! publica hoy el resultado de una encuesta en la que se ha puesto a votación el estilismo de la princesa de Asturias, tanto en sus actos oficiales como en los más informales.

El look ganador ha resultado ser el de su presentación internacional como prometida del Príncipe. Los dos trajes que le diseñó Lorenzo Caprile para asistir en Copenhague a la boda de Federico de Dinamarca y Mary Donaldson han resultado los preferidos de los lectores. El primer lugar no es, sin embargo, para el impactante traje rojo, sino para el conjunto de corpiño estampado en flores con falda color guinda. La princesa Letizia estaba espectacular con el traje rojo, pero los votantes juzgan que quizá lo estaba demasiado. El modelo del corpiño ha obtenido un consenso más amplio, ya que con él doña Letizia consiguió estar guapa y regia al mismo tiempo.

En modelo de acto oficial ha ganado un traje de chaqueta de falda blanca y chaqueta color lavanda. La mayoría de los trajes que luce doña Letizia son obra de Felipe Valera, quien ya transformó en princesas por un día a la madre y las hermanas de Letizia Ortiz, a quienes vistió para la boda real.

El atuendo informal preferido por los votantes ha resultado ser el de tejanos y cazadora de cuero. Con esa indumentaria paseó por Barcelona durante su estancia el pasado mes de noviembre y también cuando acompañó a don Felipe en un recorrido nostálgico por el campus de Georgetown, en Washington.En el apartado de los complementos, el preferido de los votantes ha sido el de las gafas de sol. También los peinados han sido sometidos a debate, resultando ganador el recogido con bucles que la princesa Letizia lució en la entrega de los premios Príncipe de Asturias.

Letizia as next to the king when he read the Xmas message in tv.

La princesa Letizia vuelve al plató
LA VANGUARDIA - 25/12/2004

La princesa de Asturias no sólo estuvo presente en la grabación del discurso navideño del Rey, sino que, sin poder olvidar su experiencia como profesional del medio televisivo, estuvo todo el tiempo pendiente de que don Juan Carlos se encontrara cómodo con las cámaras y con la lectura del discurso cuyo texto iba apareciendo en el autocue,el sistema que siguen los presentadores del Telediario y cuya técnica domina la princesa.

Doña Letizia, acompañada del príncipe Felipe, no sólo estuvo físicamente presente en el plató montado en la sala de audiencias del palacio de la Zarzuela, sino también en la foto que se colocó en la mesa auxiliar situada a la derecha de don Juan Carlos. En la imagen puede verse a los Reyes junto a los Príncipes de Asturias el día de la boda de éstos. También a la derecha, el lado de honor, se situó la bandera de España. Como fondo se utilizó un tapiz perteneciente al Patrimonio Nacional y a la izquierda del Monarca se colocó un belén compuesto por figuras antiguas. Este año, el tradicional el árbol de Navidad, adornado con bolas, que ha servido de decoración otros años, se sustituyó por una poinsettia, la tradicional flor de Pascua.

Letizia's stunning red dress at the Danish wedding was elected the most glamorous appearance of 2004, according to the Hellomagazine poll:

I agree that the dress was glamorous, but I thought it was inappropriate for a wedding. The color was too loud and could have easily eclipsed the bride herself because of the color. It looked great on Letizia, I agree, but again, maybe something toned down for a wedding, next time?

Lots of other women at the wedding wore just as brighter colours as Letizia, and styles that were much less modest and flashy, so I don't think it's fair to say that the colour of Letizia's gown eclipsed the bride.

We saw Princess Theodora also in red, Princess Alexandra in shimmery fuschia pink, Queen Margrethe and Infanta Elena in fuschia pink as well, Princess Benedikte in shimmery lime green, Crown Princess Victoria in bright yellow, and many other examples of bright, eye catching colours, so why specifically pick on Letizia and the colour of her dress?

It was Mary's day, and between her dress and her tiara and Frederik's tears, no one could have stolen the limelight away from Mary.

I never said that the other princesses wearing the loud colors weren't inappropriate in my taste. I specifically talked about Letizia because this was her thread. I didn't like Theodora, Benedikte, Elena, Margarethe, and Alexandra's choices in color.

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.
