This is so incredibly tasteless and tacky. This is most definitely not fashion.

I read in the Belgian forum that the Belgian royal court had announced that Mathilde would be stopping her royal duties shortly before she had her baby to rest up. Will Letizia be doing something similar? Will she take a rest and halt her engagements in November sometime?

I can't really see Letizia doing this as she's so hard working and I think she would be bored to tears if she had to just sit around her house waiting for the baby to be born, but I think it's a valid thing to do. I know I would want to do the same thing.

In Spain the Royal House has not announced anything on till when the Princess is going to continue with her trips and activities. What the whole world thinks is that if everything is OK and does not arises no type of problem she will continue her activities up to the Prince of Asturias Prizes on October 21.
The certain thing is that in the last weeks they have had enough trips to Prague, Seville, Milan, Bilbao. But there is thought that already only she will go of Madrid to the Prizes and probably also to the Latin-American Summit that is celebrated in Salamanca on October 14.
October 12 is also the National Day.
I believe that the acts that are Madrid will continue fulfilled by her while she could and if they adapt to her condition.

Thank you lula for the answer. I think it will be wonderful to see Letizia at the Prince of Asturias Prizes at the end of the month.

Do you know what her schedule is like for the next few weeks until she is due to give birth? Will she be going on any trips or will her royal duties be predominantly within Spain and in Madrid?

The agenda of the Spanish Royal Family is confirmed with a few days of precedence for safety motives, so there are not known very well the acts that she will have. The press has her ideas. This week only I have read that the Prince has an act in Palma, but it is a military act and I do not believe that she comes. Not if there will be more activities this week.
How I have said before the following week if she will have several acts. The day of the national day there is military parade and receipt to the authorities. On the 14th and 15th it is the Latin-American Summit, not if the Princes will come or not. The Kings are the hosts, and it would be logical that the Princes were coming to some of the acts, since he is the Prince Felipe who represents Spain in the acts of capture possession of the Latin-American Presidents. But nothing is confirmed.
The delivery of the Prizes Prince of Asturias is the 21st, but they have many activities the previous and posterior day.

My impression, and the one that I believe that ithas the Spanish press, is that this month they will limit themselves to these acts, at least Letizia.

Thanks again lula.

I had forgotten what a high priority security is for the Spanish royals and understand the reasons for their agenda being kept private until a few days.

Princess Letizia, Camarera de Honor of ‘La Amargura’
Board of directors of the Brotherhood of San Juan and the Virgin wants the wife of the heir of the throne to accept this position

HELI PÉREZ / CUENCA

The work has recompensated the people in charge of the Venerable Hermandad de Nuestra Seņora de la Amargura con San Juan Apóstol. After elaborating a complete one to dossier to obtain the title of 'Royal' to this brotherhood, the Royal House finally has studied in depth the case and has accepted that one of its members takes part in it.

Therefore, the princess of Asturias and Viana, holds the position of honor of those women who dedicate themselves to decorating to the procesional parade.

This can be verified at the brotherhood's headquarters, next to the Church of El Salvador, where already is the parchment in which the Royal House accepts that the princess takes part in this brotherhood

This it is just the first step towards the high-priority objective of the Brotherhood, that is not other than to obtain the title of Royal that it already had when was united with the brotherhood of the Virgin of Angustias.

In order to achieve this, a great work on the part of the Board of directors of this brotherhood has been necessary.

Based on the title of Royal that this brotherhood had when together with the Virgin of Angustias, the president, Pedro Paņos, was in charge to make a complete dossier so that this honor applied to this brotherhood, but now in solitaire.

At the moment it has not been possible, but the cabinet of the palace of la Zarzuela established as a condition to obtain this status that a member of the royal family took part of the Brotherhood, and finally they chose Doņa Letizia.

Olili,

Unless you have a reliable and documented source to base this information this is purely gossip and hearsay, which is against our Posting Rules and Guidelines, that are found in this link: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/f14/amended-trf-posting-rules-guidelines-4920.html

If you think that Princess Letizia is rude, that is fine, this is your opinion and we respect that. But to include the whole Spaniard population in this statement is wrong if don't have a reliable source to base this information on.

thank you,
Anna_R

I'm all for gossip, but come on, you should at least let us know what you base this on, i.e. that <all> of your extended friends and family don't like her because you happen to know that x, y or z anecdote happened or whatever. Or, perhaps magazine x, y or z did a poll among the Spanish to find out how people think about her etc.

I agree that purely judging from appearances in the media, Letizia doesn't exactly always come across as the epitome of a demure, polite-to-the bone, princess, Lady Di-style.

What with the fact that yes, she was an amitious go-getter in her job (hence the role as tv presenter, a coveted thing to be chosen to do) and in her personal life (as a student, she 'nailed' and married her professor, among other things--let alone catching the eye of the then most desired bachelors in her nation): plus, ok., the fact that the very first time we saw footage of her in connection to her future role in the Spanish royal family, she managed to put her husband-to-be in his place!

The above, again, might be the reason people like you, Ollili, are a bit biased against the girl. Can't say I blame you for that.

But media coverage can often tweak the way someone really is. So again, unless you either met the woman, or know people firsthand who did, and/or can b ack up your opinion with some background, unless you can do that, I can't really take you seriously..

There is not such a man in the world who everybody loves. I am sure that many people like Letizia and there are many people who don't like her. Just because olili posted a negative opinion it doesn't mean at all that it doesn't true.

I agree with you that Olili might be right: as I said, to me personally, Letizia certainly comes across as a woman who doesn't accept 'no' for an answer; an uber-achiever who doesn't give an inch until she gets exactly what she wants, be it a crown prince, a tv job, whatever. (this doesn't mean I don't like her: I'd honestly rather sit next to her at a dinner, say, than with politically correct, goody-two-shoes-but-otherwise-vacant Mary of Denmark. At least with Letizia, you could expect an interesting and meaningful conversation!)

But that's just my personal opinion and as such, I can't exactly say that the entire nation of Spain agrees with my point of view.

Oilili can't speak for the entire Spanish people to answer your question. Judging from the fact that he/she doesn't like Letizia, he/she is just going to say that everyone gives her a thumbs-down.

My guess of what the Spanish people would think of a divorced woman to become crown princess, is that it likely depends per generation. for example, die-hard catholics over the age of 65 might have to get used to the idea. While others of the generation of Letizia probably don't mind at all.

I have a friend there who works as a reporter at one of Spain's largest newspaper. This reminds me of what she always says about Spain: that it doesn't really exist. Spain is really four (4!) different countries forced to work as one nation. (ok that would be the Catalan, Basque, among others)

So perhaps these ethnic groups have their own opinions on the whole royal thing, Letizia included.
