Thanks for the pics! I have to admit it is great to see her but it's also kind of not so good to see her b/c I would wish for her and Felipe to have more privacy when their just going out and doing normal things:) Although I do understand having very little privacy is part of it.

I'm confused are you saying this because of a certain picture or article? Do you think she's unhappy within her life or just was unhappy in a certain moment? Please explain!

She has been through alot these few weeks/month. We cant judge by pictures, yes she might be unhappy & she might not. I think, after having her baby she will be able to get her self back together, she is going through a rough time & as it has been mentioned her pregnancy is not easy. She needs sometime to herself & with friends & family.

As you know - may be!!- I'm very found the Princes of Asturias, but never can tell if, for instance that Letizia is unhappy.

She is exactly as all human beings and adults ones confronted in their private and professional life with a lot of difficulties - at the opposite of those we think that a prince or a princess's life is a golden one whithout no problem- Yes, the Princess is under the terrible shock of the loose of her sister - as every body in the same case- but, and it's her one of major qualities, she has a great sens of her duties and fonctions and she live in a very affectionate area in wich she is receiving a lot of love but also - it's so important to - she is giving a lot of love.

Said that she is "Unhappy" is a tittle for tabloids, but think she can be sad time by time and now, perhaps, very often because the disparition of Erika is more realistic and coorespond totally to the great personnality and to the no egoistic character of the Princess.

She is not only the wife of a Prince, the mother of an Infanta ( sooner two) but also Princess of Asturias and by the way very concerned by all the spaniards among them some are very and truly and deeply unhappy.

I think that this transcendance is totally lived by the Princess of Asturias with all the consequences for herself, even it's not very easy all days long.

Her maternity leave after Leonor was 3 months long, during this time she attended only one act I think (30th anniversary of the King's enthronment). This time her break will concidate with summer holidays, so it's pretty sure she will be back to work in autumn.

According to an article from La Nueva Espana, the Princess of Asturias will now be having her own secretary. I believe that with this, we'll be seeing more solo engagements involving Letizia.

Jose Zuleta, a personnel from the military's artillery corps, will be named secretary to the Princess of Asturias. For some months now, he has already been carrying out some responsibilities as required of the post. But, his official appointment will only take place once Doña Letizia retakes her agenda after the first few months of her second maternity.

Many thanks for the news, Kartheina. If it's a true one, and I suppose it's because they give a name, it's very good thing because it's a good signification for Felipe who needs for his work all the persons attached to his activity. It's good too for Letizia because it's obvious that if her duties are going increasingly she will need a secretary.

I didnt realize that Letizia had so many official engagements, especially to have a secretary. I guess I didnt think she was that busy because I do not see pictures but I guess a lot of her work we dont see.

She had a very difficult pregnancy with Sofia and had not been out much the last few months. Under normal circumstance, she was very busy, averaged more than 3 days of engagements each week.

The Casa Real website would show that she had her fair share of activities, which took place before the public: Casa de Su Majestad el Rey de España. It's just that for various reasons (she and Felipe began with a joint agenda, plus, she had 2 pregnancies that required her to limit her engagements), Casa Real did not immediately appoint a secretary for her. So, to have one can be taken as an indication that there would be an evolution in her workload (i.e. hopefully, more solo engagements for her).

Considering that they already have a name and that the secretary had a test-run before his actual appointment, this makes me believe that they were planning this for a while now. It's just that the schedule for Letizia to have began her increased solo engagements coincided with her pregnancy with Sofia that is why they are pushing their timeline a few months later.

Princess Letizia enjoys a good reputation amoung all ao if she has some Patronages, if she participates in solo events, that will be very nice for the Spanish Royal House, for Princess Letizia herself and for the event itself who will have a very positive publicity! I think they should really support and defend her solo events, hope now we can see her in more solo events!

Hola has a different take from La Nueva España on Zuleta’s appointment. Instead of him being tagged as Letizia’s own secretary, according to them, he will actually just be an addition to the Secretariat of the Princes (note: NOT Princess) of Asturias.

THE NEW CONFIDANT/RIGHT HAND OF THE PRINCES OF ASTURIAS
Lieutenant Colonel Jose Zuleta, Marquis of Duero and Duke of Abrantes, will be added in the next months to the Secretariat of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia.

Jose Zuleta, lieutenant colonel of the artillery corps, will be incorporated in the next months to the Secretariat of the Prince of Asturias, which for eleven years has been headed by public prosecutor Jaime Alfonsin…

...Although the highest responsibilities of the Secretariat continue to be with Jaime Alfonsin, the House of His Majesty seems to have reached the conclusion that there is a need to have one person at the forefront to look after the increasingly extensive agenda of the Princes.

The Princess will not have her own staff

However, according to sources near the Zarzuela, the incorporation of Zuleta to the Secretariat of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia does not mean that the Princess of Asturias is going to have her own staff at her disposal and it also does not mean that she will be having a parallel/separate agenda from that of the Prince. Rather, the understanding is that when the Princess of Asturias resumes her official activities… besides accompanying the Prince, she will be presiding over some acts on her own, as she has began doing last year.

Given the necessity to coordinate the Princes’ innumerable activities, 2 recent additions were made to the number of staff – now seven in total, and Colonel Emilio Tomé de la Vega, the former field aide/assistant of Don Felipe de Borbón, was appointed as the secretariat’s deputy chief to assist Alfonsin. (The Princes’ Secretariat) is a department that is completely integrated in the bulk of offices that sustain the activities of the House of the King: security, press relations, protocol, etc. Now, as soon as the post of secondary head of protocol will be filled (as this position is currently being held by Zuleta), the Princes of Asturias will be having a new confidant/right hand.
