Why does the Princess accompany the Prince on almost all his engagements. She never has a personal role in these engagements.
I know that some of them it would definitely be appropriate. All other Royal Households they have engagements together and separate. She could be at home with her daughter.

If this is required of her, is it still a training period, or do they not trust her.

I watched an old video clip of her giving the news and she was so confidant. Really a elegant and educated woman with the plus of having to deal with the public.

If anyone could spread some light on this matter it would be truly appreciated.

We are speaking a lot on this subject whithout finding others answers that for the moment the Casa Real seems to prioritize the role of the Princes together rather than giving at Letizia specific activities that everybody are certain she is able to do it alone .

The princess, awarded

The Association Messenger of La Paz has given to the prizes Pluma from La Paz to the journalists who moved to Iraq between 2003 and 2006 to cover the conflict. The founder of the Association, the father Angel, made a special mention to the Princess de Asturias, with whom agreed in Iraq when it was only Letizia Ortiz and she worked for the TVE, and also remembered to Jose Couso and Julio Anguita, assassinated in that war. The father Angel indicated that Princess de Asturias thanked for by letter the distinction to them, that 20 years ago received its Menchu grandmother of the Castle.
Sources of the Zarzuela have said that they thank for the concession of the prize, but that by norms of the Real House does not accept awards.

The German press speculates on with the next pregnancy of Letizia Diverse publications assure that Princess de Asturias follows a diet special to remain pregnant of a boy. The speculations of a new pregnancy of Doņa Letizia already have begun to circulate around several European countries. Concretely the German press is had bold to assure that the princes are doing all the possible one so that the next son whom they have in common is a boy. In the magazine "Woche Der Frau", in his edition of the 21 of June, it appeared in portadilla the image of Princess de Asturias with his Leonor daughter and the news opened two front page of the publication with the holder "princess Letizia is thinking about having a boy". Within the information it emphasized: "In the first visit from the princes to Germany it came to the light that is following a special diet for it". The magazine concretely talked about to the presence of Don Felipe and Doņa Letizia to the world-wide ones of soccer and where they were present in the party between Spain and the Ukraine. In the text in addition a phrase of the own princess to the journalists is emphasized in whom it assures that "I am convinced that my next son will be a boy". The article makes specific that so that all quiet effect Princess de Asturias has constantly somebody controls its feeding. On the other hand, it is possible to remember that Doņa Letizia already to pointed in some occasion that thought to follow the recommendations of its doctors, who advised to him that he hoped a year to return at least to remain pregnant woman, since the lighting of Leonor took place by means of Caesarean.

It is very enterteining ... the science has changed so much that now the sex of the children depends on what the mother eats and not on the genetics.:p

But good, already we know how it is the German press, and also the Spanish agency that has sold this news ... it seems that they need some topic about which to speak. The summer comes and they do not want to work.

They have commented on it in a program of television (I imagine that they would have to refill the program),they speak about the news because the Princes have been in Germany recently. Mari Angeles Alcazar (specialist in Royal House) was saying that it was absurd, the first because the Princess did not speak with the German press, because they went from the airport to the field of football and return, maybe with some sports journalist.
Besides,she has commented, that hearing is several times already to the Princess to say, that at least they would wait the year that the doctors recommend due to her Caesarean.
Also they have commented what thinks the majority of the people, if the Princes could to choose the sex of their next baby (thing that is impossible and illegal), assurance that they would prefer that she was another girl. The constitutional problem has not been solved, and unfortunately the political situation of Spain at present seems that it will be late in be solving.
If in the first pregnancy there was many pressure for this topic, in the second one it is going to be worse, because the problem is not solved and Leonor already is there. Though it seems that there are legal solutions for it is a problem, the polemic will exist and Letizia will live through a pregnancy with many tension, which I would not wish anybody. A second girl would give them many tranquility.

Certainly, I have lost the account of the times that the press have "pregnancy " Letizia since Leonor was born. Though in the last months also they have pregnancy Maxima and Mary.

Dear Lula, for the Press the item of Letizia ( or any Crown Princess ) pregnancy is better to sold than the story of Firm's visit or a dinner with buisenessmen. And as it's very easy and without consequence to say that the Princess is pregnant, they can do " a paper " so many as they want. Plus, as it's not a bad critiscism they can repeat the false information all month long, it's very good for the sale of the newspaper, not very tiring for the journalist and, may be, once it will be true......

I think i that case Felipe is the one who should be following a diet to produce more Y spermatozoids, you know since men are the ones that determine the sex of the babies..

I have read something like that, but I don't remember where; I beleive also to have heard that a salt diet is good to obtain a girl ( or a boy ) I don't remember too.

I'm very surprised that the german press or other yellow don't describe the way how the Princes have to mak love, because it's very well know that for a boy it's in a such position and for the girl, in other one:p

Can you imagine the title: " Drama al Palacete, Letizia has to make love in only missionary position to have a boy " and so on....
It's strange that the yellow press don't have think about that :p I beleive that Victoria Beckmann had mad an interview to say how she does to obtain a girl....THAT IS VERY INTERESTING, isen't it :p .....

First, as far as know the karl Lagerfeld, he is giving stuff only at his best clients and Letizia don't wear Chanel.
Then, actually I don't know, but it will be very surprising that the Princess of Asturias accept stuff because the protocol.

This remark is done also for the Queen; for the Infantas, particulary Elena who is wearing very often Chanel, I don't know but I can't imagine very well that she should receive some stuuf of such designer whithout breaking the rules.

What do the specialists of Spain Court Protocol think about this subject ?

If I am not wrong, I think that we will never see Letizia Vestida de Channel or other marks with high seam that is not Spanish.

Totally right, dear friend. The single foreign designer that Letizia was Armani for her " Pedida de mano " and she has also a brown pant outfit of this designer.

As far as i know she never wore Chanel, Dior, Valantino, Lacroix ( for this one too bad because I'm sur that his quiet spanish style will fit very well to the princess)

I have noticed that Princess Letizia does not have any charity on her charge. Her work is limited to be with Felipe. Is it not a shame??

Well, she, along with Felipe, had a presidency of honour of several (I dare say tens or even much more) charity institution. We have to also add, that every monarchy has it's own "politics" in charity. In Spain, there are Infantas (as well as the sisters of the King and Princess Irene of Greece, sister of the Queen) to be involved in charity. Moreover, Queen Sofia has her fundation, which focuses on charity (also in Africa).

Letizia has helped to that Felipe is closest with people; that has somebody with whom to discuss aspects of the acts, of the trips… she supports to her husband and aid to that people find out the work that does; and thus to be able to have but support of people like future king.

In addition because Felipe is the one who reads the speeches does not mean that Letizia does not participate when prepares the acts and the trips; and that does not speak with anybody in the acts.

In addition she prepares much when goes to a place; is interested in which is related to the act and thus to know how to speak with the people.

In my opinion this also must consider.

Princess of Asturias accepts to be waiter of honor of the Virgin of Castillo

Princess of Asturias, Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, has accepted the position of waiter of honor of the Virgin of the Castle, thus responding affirmatively to the proposal that more of a year the Brotherhood ago of the Virgin of the Castle of Cisneros did telling on the support of 400 companies and the approval of City council and Bishopric to him.
So and as Daily Palentino informed, the idea arose in the celebration of the Candles of 2005, in a town hall of the Brotherhood where its disposition remembered to that Princess de Asturias accepted the position of waiter of honor of the Virgin of the Castle. “To the town of Cisneros and the brothers cofrades fills to us of pride”, affirms the president-abbot of the same one, Good Pablo Jose.
