You make great points here kartheina. I've done some research around the forum and found the below pictures that show Letizia in the field in her time as a reporter

The topic of Letizia's weight is something, im afraid to say, will follow her all her life, or at least until Leonor take the attention of the media from her. I just want to add that Letizia is a person that is loved by her husband and family, so she will probably be taken care of if she had some problems. This topic is for sure frustrating for her as it is difficult to follow her agenda and deal with all these.

i think it's great that Princess Letizia is aware of these "rumors" and that she has responded to these herself. it prevents any further speculation, and i do hope that the press, or anyone for that matter, will respect the Princess' words. :)
Noted on the entire translated article :) Also, I share your hope for the Princess' words to be respected. She deserves to be given the benefit of the doubt.

Meredith, thanks for looking for all those photos. Although the degree of her thinness in some of them can be debatable due to the quality of the still captures, they all show that she's really been thin her whole life. All throughout, there might have been slight changes in her weight but then, she was constantly thin.

True that Letizia doesn't have a toddler to run around after and a home to take care of in addition to a newborn the way my aunt did, but Letizia's schedule post-baby was certainly much more hectic than my aunt's would've been. My aunt had 14 months off in total and during that time mostly her schedule consisted of taking my cousin to and from junior kindergarten, which is half the morning during which time she went to a mother's group. She could rest in the afternoon when everyone went down for a nap.

While Letizia took some time off after having Leonor, she certainly didn't take 14 months off and she has kept up a fairly busy schedule still, so I doubt she's having daily afternoon naps either.

I think what we have to realize as while we may think she is too thin for our liking she only knows what she wants to weigh. A lot of women don't feel comfortable carrying more weight. I have a friend who I think looks good with more weight she on the other hand feels uncomfortable heavier. :)

I do not understand the determination in copying the articles of El Confidencial, always they are equal, and in summer they are intensified (it seems that they do not have another thing that to write). Last summer was a daily article against Letizia, this year less, but they follow the same line. There is nothing new.

They might leave Letizia in peace and to worry for more serious things. The King seems that already is not in Majorca, how he does always, but he is not in Galicia that is where he should be with the catastrophe that they have passed there with the fires, which criticize it, ...

Already that in El Confidencialare an antimonarchy, and this determination does not stop being surprising in criticizing Letizia always. Probably be that they are afraid to this aptitude to drag the people, capacity that limits itself to not doing anything, because the interest that she provokes is not because she makes anything special. If without doing anything she obtains the attention, that she will obtain if she does it?

It is not exact.

The majority of the queens colitigants have been foreign, in this moment only I remember an exception, at least between the most recent (there would be necessary to check very much the history), Sofia of Greece, Victoria Eugenia of England, Maria Cristina de Habsburgo...And the exception, Maria de las Mercedes of Orleans and Borbón, the first wife of the King Alfonso XII, reigned very a little time because she died because of a disease, but it is a figure that has stayed for the history, her life and her owners' history turned almost into legend and even there is a movie on her life.

Spain also has taken queens as a right as two Isabel, or the poor Juana, the Mad

In the same way, so and as it made specific Good Pablo yesterday Jose, the Brotherhood will ask for at the beginning of September hearing with the Princess. "If finally us it grants it, something who would fill to us of pride, we want to return to represent the bow, but it will be necessary to wait for the answer", comments. Also day 8, but in this occasion with the intention to continue with the tradition year after year, will give for the first time to two woods danced of the Virgin (of wood and engravings with the name) to a person and an institution who somehow have contributed to the development of the town. In this occasion, Sources will go destined to Manuel to have contributed to the well-being of the town and the Brotherhood and to the Cisneros Foundation of Venezuela, and in concrete to Gabriel Cisneros by the made investment and the firm bet by the culture, since it has published a book and a DVD on Cisneros Cardinal. of exceptional form. In the eagerness to bet by the development of the palentino municipality, the Brotherhood of exceptional form will give to the City council (and for the first time last) a danced wood of the Virgin. It will be the day of pregón of the celebrations, the 7 of September, when this wood is given that will go destined to the mayor of the municipality. "We also want to publicly thank for to the City council of Cisneros the support that we have received in this project of which all the town, beginning by the Consistorio, has become contributor of this honor for all", it assured the abbot the Brotherhood.

And three go: another summer without photos of the Princess in bath suit

It is the looked for photo more and it will continue being it, since this August they have not had luck either “paparazzi” that longs for to have in their objectives an image of Doña Letizia in bath suit while it refreshes in the Mediterranean. A summer plus the Princess has known to afloat stay thanks to the t-shirts and bermuda shorts that has taken and with the fireproof visor that it bought in his debut of the Majorcan summer and that must keep in some closet of the Palace of Marivent for “in the same way rescuing it” in its exits to the sea that Reina recovers its printed sets of blouse and trousers.
The Princess we have not seen it while it was sent to the water from some of the boats that the Royal Family uses, nor being toasted in cover as so many times have made their sisters-in-law, Infants Doña Elena and Doña Cristina, whose “baths” on the high seas yes have been caught by the cameras of the reporters and sights soon in the pages of newspapers or magazines. …

Has Letizia ever had an event (is that what it's called?) by herself? Like Mary and Maxima and other CPss that have seperate events (sometimes) from thier husbands?

If we count that flag event she had two, the Prince was there with her but she was the godmother of the event and delivered her own speech...
