The mother of the princess of Asturias could change of address and be transferred to a house near the palace of her daughter.

A house that at the moment is in rehabilitation process and that something has to do with National Patrimony. I do not know if the content, in this case the bricks, or the continent, in form of manual labor.

part of the article

The women coil to the men in the family of Doña Letizia, affirms to the author of "the Ortiz"

The women are the one who command in the family of the princess of Asturias, Letizia Ortiz, according to Mariló Suárez, author of "the Ortiz, the Asturian family of the princess Letizia", who will go out this week. Suárez reviews to all the ascending ones of the Princess, beginning by her paternal grandmother, Menchu journalist Alvarez of the Valley, until concluding that Princess Letizia grew in a family in whom the women coil the men.

It is incredible, how can they write a book on Letizia's family? What right have they? Letizia is a public personage, but her family has right to support their intimacy, I do not understand this.
It seems to me to be terrible that besides they speak about the godmother of Letizia, what already victim of a cancer has died.
And it seems to me to be furthermore terrible that they publish this book the week in which it is fulfilled a year of the death of the grandfather of Letizia. How can few scruples be had so?
Then they criticize to Letizia's family, when actually there is demonstrated once again that it is the press who chases them, and who pledges in damaging them and earning money with them.

More about this book from "El mundo"'s suplement "Cronica" (it's written by the author I think):
http://www.elmundo.es/suplementos/cr...142722813.html
And rough translation:

In Letizia's family woman rule more than in "the Ortiz", title of the book. It would be necessary to talk about the women who have conformed the character of Letizia. According to the author, in this family the men are left coils by the "féminas".

With calm voice, like assuming their own condition of head of household,Plácida del Valle drops laconic "déjalos that speak" in an attempt to raise the moral of their daughter Menchu, crushed by the maledicentes commentaries of the Oviedo of half of XX century. The phrase said by the great-grandmother of Doña Letizia has become the motto that moves and motivates an ancestry of women that has influenced in the character of the Princess of Asturias. All and each one has contributed a part of themselves to Doña Letizia: the tenacity, the ambition, the eternal curiosity, the affection and a strong character that explodes as the foam of champán when it gets upset. Self-taught women who did not dedicate themselves to a simple life.

To know better the personality of the wife of the heir to the Spanish throne through the women of its family is the foundation of the book "Los Ortiz", the Asturian family of princess Letizia, who I finish writing and who on 24th will go out under the seal of La Esfera de los Libros. In it, I shell the influence that exerted this matriarcado in the forge of a princess. When we knew officially that Doña Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano was going to be the future Princess of Asturias, at the end of 2003, another name related to her left the voluntary anonymity that had chosen more than ten years ago: Maria del Carmen Alvarez del Valle, her paternal grandmother, more well-known by Menchu. A woman who reached popularity in the radio between years 50's and 80's of XX century.

The strong personality of its grandmother, her ambition to be the best one in its profession, its excess of perfeccionism, its character sometimes endiablado and also a natural spontanieous that always helped to hide it its timidity... These are some of the characteristics that the old speaker transmitted to her granddaughter Letizia.

In the book anecdotes about Menchu are related to understand better the character of the Princess. One tells that, in the occasion of the International Film Festival in San Sebastián, the grandmother of Princess de Asturias was with a Jorge Mistral eager to have an adventure with her. Of course, she refused and to the cinema gallant its reaction called the attention to him, since it thought that she was more modern. Menchu cut to him with a butcher: "Modern yes, "puta" not". Soon they were good friends.

Menchu attracted Letizia towards the world of books, taught to love the poets, who nobody is more important that she, to enjoy the power of silence and to to be generous with the family, feeling shared by all the women who appear in the book.
For Letizia, her grandmother is referring an unquestionable one. A dedicated photography -"I want to be as good as you"- she left in the familiar album and she remembers the beginning of a profession truncated when seeing itself Princess.

If her grandmother put gusanillo to him of the media, her aunt grandmother Mari Sol Alvarez gave the touch to prevail. With Mari Sol she learned to lose the fear, to lay way, to calm the nerves, to modulate the voice... And that a woman can gain as much as she wants. She contributed that feminista granite of respect. Mari Sol managed to lay way in Madrid until directing in National Radio its own matutinal, program,Clave del Sol, made only by women. She is the one that also maintains an ideology most visible. Progresista, was a well-known one affiliated with the union UGT. And, how no, the other aunt grandmother, Flora Alvarez del Valle, the artist of the family, attracted by the esoteric world, the dared one able to create her own producer and to go to ruin with her first largometraje,Mecanismo Interior, carried out by the actress Maria Mahor. She contributed affection in abundance and attraction by art.Aquéllos that knew it in the Corral de la Moraría's memories it trying to introduce their scripts. She was a beautiful woman, of disquieting physicist, who spoke with passion of the Rosacruces and its secret society.

The mother, Paloma Rocasolano, is the advisor, the one that elegance contributes and it gives touch of distinction. Letizia with "Z" comes from the fascination that her mother felt when it is listened tth pronounce of that name to an Italian woman. Opera, classical music, dance, is arts that fill the world of Paloma and that she transfers to her daughter. In a trip to Cuba, Paloma managed to dazzle companions by the passion that is demonstrated by enjoying every moment of the life. She is the perfect tourist.

Through her godmother and aunt, Cristina Ortiz, died because of a cancer, know the fight by the life, the love to the family and the reality of the clan that never leaves to you, whereas her aunt Henar Ortiz transfers to her that the important thing is to be in taste with the life: the rebel of the family, the one that looked for until it found his hollow.

Each one transmitted the best thing to him of herself, contributing to forge the personality of Letizia. And the men? Coils by the female personalities, faithful shades...
Mariló Suárez is author of "the Ortiz", that will go out the 24 March under the seal the Sphere Books/MARILÓ SUÁREZ

Reading these things and being a woman, there is grateful that the world has changed in the last decades.
The grandmother of the Princess always has looked like to me an interesting personage, an example for many women of her epoch. Probably for whom it does not know the history of Spain it is more difficult to deal. But with the arrival of the dictatorship of Franco, the Spanish women, they lost many of the rights that had won. The women only had to marry and take care of their family, other one sews it was badly a sight. The women were depending totally on their husbands, and to do many things, how open an account in the bank, needed the signature of the husband.

This is slightly off the topic of the book -- but how many siblings does Paloma Rocasolano have and does she have any sisters? Also, did her mom work outside the home?

Paloma has a brother, and this brother has 3 children, two boys and a girl, curiously the 3 took children as the first time last year, how Letizia, so Leonor has many cousins of her age to play. The brother of Paloma does not live in Spain. But the Princes came to the wedding of Abigail the cousin of Letizia, and other one of her cousins was the day of the commitment in El Pardo.

Telma Ortiz, between the sexiest

The popularity of the yongest sister of Doña Letizia is not limited in the press of the heart to the interest of her singleness or of her friendships (Alberto of Monaco included).

Telma Ortiz, a cooperator of profession, has also been captivated the feminine preferences of the Spaniards or, at least, those of 56,000 readers of the magazine 'FHM', who have answered the classic question "Who are the sexiest girls in the world?".

Telma Ortiz appears as one of the ten 'sexiest' girls in the world... and that that ranking is full of national "bombones"...

The wedding was in a church. During the dictatorship, in Spain the civil marriage did not exist.

Lula in 1965 since the Vatican Council II you where able to get a civilian marriage in Spain presenting a paper that proved that you didn't have catholic religious beliefs, however that picture where presented to me as the wedding day but you may be right, I thought they maybe get married according by the civilian and after that they got the normal church wedding, as was/is so common for a lot of couples, I'm not saying Paloma and Jesus weren't religious people but you never know because remember that Francisco Rocasolano, Paloma's father was a fighter by the republica, in the Republican side and they maybe weren't that catholics after all, the same first wedding of Letizia was a civilian one; but again you maybe right, I'm trying right now to locate my sources from those pictures and a better picture as well, I remember that I had one with Paloma with a flowers bouquet if my memory serve me right. :)
