Not, tomorrow there is no act. And since always it seems that they will celebrate it of discreet form with family or friends, they are not in the habit of making anything special. I wait that when it is the Leonor's first birthday, if we have something a bit more special, at least some new photo of the girl.

Yeah!
Maybe next year, we will see something special, because the Princess will celebrate her 35th birthday. I was wondering: the Infantas had something special in their 35th or 40th birthday?
So we knew how many years we would wait to see birthday photos.

I believe that for 40 birthdays of the Infanta Elena there was a great party in the Zarzuela, but it was a private party, not publicly at all.

Another article from hola:

http://www.hola.com/casasreales/2006...a-cumpleanios/

Princess Letizia turns 34 as a happy wife and mother.
Each birthday is sweeter for Princess Letizia, and comes accompanied with greater joys every time. They have passed four years after her first appointment completely without information with the Prince of Asturias; three after their commitment; two and so after the celebration of their wedding; almost two after her pregnancy… And, now, takes place her 34th anniversary, first one as a mother.
As it comes being tradition, the Royal House has not facilitated any activity on the deprived plans of Doņa Letizia to celebrate her birthday. However, it's known that she will spend the day in the absolute familiar privacy and intimicy - in her residence, within the Palace of the Zarzuela, or in some other place; in company of her most beloved ones, blowing the candles of her pie next to her husband, Prince Felipe, and their little one, Infanta Leonor, who will fulfill her first year of life in more than month time, next October 31st.

Jaime Peņafiel has written a book about Letizia !!!!
The Book is entitled, " Letizia in Palace "

Peņafiel describes Letizia as a capricious woman, and a woman who does not know who is her rolec in the monarchy


Jaime Peņafiel's continuous worry for Letizia Ortiz's life

The veteran journalist has turned into an authentic scourge of the Royal House, especially from the commitment of Don Philip with "plebeian" one who monopolizes since then the areas

It is not exactly a book, only the summary of the articles that he writes in El Mundo ... it is to say, a way easy to money promote and be done. Today in day to publish a "book" it is not required very much.

I do not believe that there is nothing to comment on on this personage, because already he bores ... he pledges in demonstrating that Letizia is the domineering one, the capricious one and the bad-mannered one ... and he manipulates everything to demonstrate it. Curiously, Letizia continues there in her second plane, without opening the mouth ... so he uses his imagination, or he manipulates any absurd thing.

The saddest thing, it is that there is so obsessed, that is unable to do a veracious work, and of judging the work that the Princes do inheritors. Only he is interested in the rumor, damages to Letizia or her family, to satisfy his own ego. But he is not capable of valuing the good work that the Princes do in their official activities, is more, I believe that so a minimal idea does not even have of the acts to those they come and the activities that they realize. Only gossip, rumors and lies. And unfortunately it is not the only one ... this way certain press works, interested in doing business and not in reporting.

For certain persons that the plebeian one and divorcée has turned into Princess of Asturias, it is a drama ... it is the only thing that they value, and they are not capable of valuing in an objective way if she does or not a good work ... only they value it. Besides, in an act before the wedding, Letizia did a commentary to Peņafiel on someone of the commentaries that he was writing in his column, and since then he hates her furthermore.
Though Peņafiel always has been like that, a bit embittered, now he praises the Queen, but also he has criticized her very much.

To speak about Letizia has turned into a business, she was the normal girl who turned into Princess, and it causes envy in some, is furious in others. For her wedding, she is in a position that many people would like. Also it has turned into an easy victim for the assaults to the Monarchy, attack often of political type.

Letizia has many "enemies", is an easy victim, because inside the Royal Family, she is the person who is there for wedding and has more power.

For the "pink" press, which every time is more yellow or even black (in the last years its degradation in Spain in incredible), Letizia has been from the beginning a business ... a bad bussiness. Because Letizia choose for a professional profile, for following the same work that the Queen has done. She dresses a discreet clothes, neither is present at parties nor grants interviews ... for this type of press, a Princess who only devotes herself to her work, is not profitable ... so what they do is to invent different rumors to have a topic of conversation. And major all that and sla polemic, more it sells .. because the press of the "entrails" is like that .. and they do not take any respect as anybody. It is a press that values more to whom it sells his life and allows them to do business, that to whom they work indeed. They do it with the Princess and with other many persons.

On the other hand Letizia has turned also into a political weapon. The republicans, take advantage of the critiques to Letizia to damage the image of the Monarchy. And the ultraconservative ones, who will never accept the Princess plebeian, divorced and edducated in a liberal environment, also attack her. They are the same that in its day were attacking the Queen Sofia for being a foreigner and being a very cold woman.
Though it seems to be paradoxical, often the critiques come from the aristocracy and from the most conservative positions, that they believe that still they have rightly to certain privileges, and that not understanding that the Monarchy is an institution that one must adapt to the life in democracy.

Ultimately, all that that instead of valuing in an objective way the work and the activities of the Princess ... simply one uses it. Because the critiques are not objective, based on logical things ... but often based on indemonstrable rumors, or in manipulations.

It's good to have pro and cons. It's what makes life so interesting. I don't agree with everything he says, but I am sure there is some true to some of the statements.

The sadest thing is that he says all the time the same about the same person.All person have good and bad things and its good to say this but isnīt good obsesing about someone and canīt see the many good things she has and the excelent work she is doing. He has many contradictions,wants a princess like queen Sofia but when she is equal doesnīt like at all and wants a modern princesss. Although the worst is that he doesnīt like Letizia because she was doing a bad work as a princess is only because of class-conscious prejudices.

It is true, quite the persons have good and bad things, no member of the Royal Family is perfect, because they are normal persons. What it is necessary to value is that they do a good work, which their acts fulfill with responsibility, which they do not abuse their position ... and in these aspects Letizia is developing to the perfection the work that they have assigned to her. And it is the most important thing ...

What it is not possible to do is to attribute and to criticize Letizia, for things that have been constant in the Royal Family, attitudes that they praise in the Queen and the Infantas, they are hardly criticized in Letizia ... it is a demagoguery, which does not lead to any site.

On the judgments of class they are very habitual in certain sectors, and often they are very paradoxical. If you have a pertaining to nobility title, money or a certain surname excuse many things to you. Look the children of the Duchess of Alba, with many pertaining to nobility titles, at a lot of money, and with possibilities to have the best education ... the only thing that they create are scandals.

To define the signs of identity of what must be a catholic television and the possibility of collaboration, fundamentally in the transfer of contents, they will be an object of study during a Congress organized by the Pontificio Consejo of Social Communications and the Archbishopric of Madrid.
