The Infanta Elena comes to Felipe Varela's shop, and across her Letizia came to the workshop. I imagine that for Letizia and the safety services it is comfortable that she goes to his workshop because this way they it have all controlled good since there the Infanta lives.

It's lovely to see the pictures of Letizia's mother and grandparents visiting Infanta Elena. I'eoften wondered how the various Royals and the families of some of the Princesses who've married into them interact (eg. Mary, Mette-Marit and Letizia). It seems the Spanish Royals don't hold any airs and graces amnogst Letizia's family.

Paloma Rocasolano taking her mother to the hospital to a medical review (she has a bandaged eye) on December 22. And with her parents and her granddaughter in the circus on the 23rd.

That's probably why she's always wearing shades. It could be glaucoma because it's common for old people, and my late grandma had it too later in her life.

Carla is so cute. IMO, she's prettier than Victoria Federica.

I think Letizia's clothing style resembles her mother's very much.
Chic & elegant.. (not neccesarily feminime)

yes, Carla is very cute...

is this the same Circus event the family attended last year with children of infanta cristina & felipe & letizia ?

The sister of the Princess, already has returned to Spain to pass last days of the Christmas holidays and to come to Leonor's baptism. She was employed with the Red Cross at The Philippines. In the television I have seen images of the mother and the sisters coming in car to the zZarzuela, and here there is a photo of Paloma and Thelma shopping.

yes, little star. there are some of photos of erika on the net (look in altavista or google for example, for "erika ortiz + letizia"). however, thelma is much more interesting to the press as she is younger and not married :)

i found really nice that paloma and her parents visited elena. it shows that they have a close relationship and that's something that most of us doubted before seeing those pictures.

talking about jesus ortiz's interview to zapatero i must say it's quite surprising as well and in my opinion suspicious. i didn't give much importance to it before i read in a magazine that he got the degree of journalist just before the interview and that he didn't finish his degree, he got some kind of "honoris causa" degree. in that case i find that totally out of place. not many people in spain get degrees after leaving studies and i doubt very much he got it because of something else than being the princess' father. the article didn't give much detail on how he got it not a source of the information so i don't know if what they said is slightly "invented" or made up by someone. does anyone know anything else about it? what it said mainly was that "jesus ortiz, letizia's father got his degree on journalism despite not finishing it. the first thing he did afterwards was making an interview to prime minister zapatero. bravo for him!"

The father of Letizia is not licensed in journalism, is licensed in Law. In Asturias in that epoch (not today in day) the career of journalism not existed, and it was necessary to be going to Madrid to study, for what was necessary to have a good economic position. The father of Letizia goes working as journalist and in the mass media all his life. There are journalists who take the whole life working and they do not have the title.
Before it was not so easy to accede to these careers and the people were studying Law, Philosophy and Letters ... and later they could work as journalists. Before not the whole world could accede to the university careers and the professionals were educated working. There are many professionals who are for all his life is being employed at something and not for having studied a career. He has been employed at the radio, at offices of communication, has given classes in Masters and courses for journalists ... so he is journalists, though he does not have a paper with the degree.

He was going many years collaborating with that magazine and he had interviewed several ministers (if you want I say to you where you can see the magazine). So I believe that the one who wrote the article that you read or he was an ignoramus or had very bad intention.

And it of " honoris causa " is a science fiction, few people obtain this type of degrees , only big personalities. :p

ok, that kind of explains it. i thought it was going to be really weird and suspicious if he without being a personality or having a degree would get the "paper" aknowleadging he is a journalist. :)

Little Star,

I have gone through the thread and deleted the broken links, they're all working fine right now.

I'll search around for more up to date pictures of Erica and will post them here. But we'll probably see them all on Saturday during Leonor's christening:)

The father of Letizia is only a Sound Technician, period. He doesn't have any law title, none, nothing, only the normal Bachelor studies wich includes humanities and sciences, become a journalist in Spain is easiest that become a lawyer, in Jesus era, in this era, always journalist have being cheaper than law studies and if Oviedo didn't have journalism school much less a law school. If he didn't have the resources to be a journalist much less to be a lawyer, he doesn't have any relationship whatsoever with law studies. He started to work on the radio inspired by Menchu who wasn't a journalist either but a anchor of a show in Franco's era, where not everybody had acces to a microfone except the Falangists, people used to have short memory; but despite that point Jesus Ortiz is only a Sound Technician, that's ok, nothing wrong with that, but is not a journalist; he's working as a "journalist" on his wife Ana Togore's magazine "Revista Escritura Publica" the lawyers magazine, because he have some experience on the journalism world, and in that position his wife appointed him to do the Zapatero interview, wich was so cursi it becomes the joke of Spain that month. After that The Press Asociation of Spain gave them the membership on what they call "Tercer Turno", third class, kind of, because he has worked with Lalo Azcona and have some experience in the journalism world, and after that interview the Press Ass. needs to do something to face the complaint of real journalist who have been asking for a interview with the president of the goverment for months with no such luck, go figure. Do you know how many journalist are interested in interview Zapatero?. That interview was only, and I repeate myself, only, because Jesus Ortiz, wich is not a journalist, is Letizia Ortiz's father, period.

Do you never get tired? Besides in several things they are bad informed.

To be lawyer in Spain is equal of easily that to be journalists. It is more, is a lawyer pleaded being that journalist, since in Spain there are many more Universities of Law, that of journalism.

As far as your commentary on Menchu it seems to me absurd. Many journalists who worked at time of Franc continue working nowadays and they are not ´"falangistas ". They were simply people who worked, in her case a woman very series and very respected in her profession, like her sister.

If you are interested in it here you have the information, find out before spilling your poisonous commentaries.
