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.

I looked at the website you said and I never knew that she had that many official engagements, it was a lot.

According to Hola, Jose Zuleta is not her personal secretary, but he would be working with both of them for joint and solo activities, at least that's how I understood it.

La Nancy, vestida de princesa | elmundo.es

The Nancy, dressed in princess

As a fairy godmother, Herminia Marcado appeared to the Nancy to dress her as the whole princess. Delighted with the pomps that Dona Letizia takes and marked in her infancy for the fondness towards the doll, this designer of Cordoba decided to make him some of the models that the Princess of Asturias has shone in special occasions.

Thanks Lula. Its quite funny to see somebody made a doll dressed the same way as Letizia. The dresses look quite alike. The doll doesn't really look a lot like her does she. Her face is a bit chubby next to Letizia's. Are these dolls in shops for sale? I can just see little girls play with dolls dressed like their future queen. Very cute

The dolls look absolutely nothing like Letizia! But the outfits are cute, if you like dolls.

The doll's aren't supposed to look like Letizia, it's just "Nancy (the doll's name) dressed as a princess"

I'd like to have a doll in the dress from the wedding. When I saw Letizia's wedding I thought: how could she choose a dress like this? It's awful. But now I think that her dress was beautiful. But I like Mary's dress most

I'm sorry but since a while we try to avoid to make comparaison between Letizia and Mary because it's absolutly not relevant. Your are totally right to like all that concern Mary, totally normal, but why to write it in a thread realating to Letizia? You could go on the thread only done for the wedding gowns to see how people find these Of Mary and how you could supported her....

On eBay you can find a lot of Leonor dolls. I think they'll sell Nancy-Leti dolls too

This one is a private collection, simply a woman who has decided to dress to the doll Nancy with copies of garments of the Princess that she herself realizes. Also she has some dressed how the Queen or the Infanta Elena. It is a particular collection and they do not sell (at least today in day, who knows in a future).

I don't think so The kings go to China to 24-27 of June.

Año de España en China

I'm sure to see her in Sofia's baptism when? I don't know and hope in Irene Urdangarin birthday (June 5) but it is difficult.

There is an article in Diez Minutos about Froilan's communion and says that Princess Letizia, who was not present at the ceremony, has a new hairdo. Apparently her hair is shorter and with bangs.

I don't know if this is true and if somebody has seen her (journalists in Zarzuela?) but I haven't found any pictures.

If it's true, I cannot wait to see how she looks.

I read it too and I'm sure it suits her well... she has always looked better with shorter hair.
Here's the article:
