btw, her eyes were greenish-hazel, not entirely green at all.

Maybe she knows a few Tagalog words now especially we have borrowed Spanish words. Next time you see her try to talk to her in Spanish or Tagalog. Who knows maybe you can score some gossips.

Carla has always been very shy, I saw pictures of her late mother Erika holding her the same way as grandma did in the pictures. I think Paloma has changed the most since the death of Erika. She used to be so smiling and energetic, now she appears sad and tired. Erika and Carla had the most presense in Paloma's daily life before, now she goes home from work without seeing Carla running around and maybe often has to eat dinner by herself, that's about the hardest part to overcome.

Of course, Mrs. Rocasolano must be very sad, and look tired. Her daughter died so little time ago. Just think how she must be feeling. Of course, her granddaughter Carla must be a great relief for her, and she must bring a lot of happiness in her life...But the little one can make her to remember her daughter Erika too...adding to this that Carla herelf must be sadened for her mother is gone.

The situation is far from being easy.

Vanesa.

I think her parents are still with her, though, hopefully to help ease the lonliness and sadness of this time.

Thanks Lula, great pictures. Francisco looks quite good for a man his age, I can't believe he's 90 allready. Happy birthday Francisco, and many more years to go

They have put the images of the car in several programs of television. According to some journalists in several occasions have commented, is habitual that the Princess organizes familiar lunchs in her house some weekends.

Hi RhapsodyBrat,

Since you have seen Telma on several occasions, could you guess on her height? Was she wearing heels? It's hard to tell from photos how tall people are but I think Telma and Letizia are the same height. Thanks for any info you can provide.

Best regards,

Ayvee

The last weekend Letizia was in Madrid and she celebrated the grandparent's birthday in Madrid while the Prince Felipe was in Mallorca in the Breitling Cup.
In Mallorca we are waiting for all the Royal Family because de King's Cup is coming!.
The King's Cup Sail will be from July 30 to August 4 in the Royal Nautical Club of Palma de Mallorca

- EL MUNDO | Suplemento cronica 613 - Santiago Martín/ Jorge y Alberto/ Telma Ortiz

Telma Ortiz

SHE CAME to the baptism of her niece, the infanta Sofía, and portrayed in Palace. The elegant Telma immediately returned to her life in The Philippines ... with "diplomatic" visa Hours after finishing the ceremony of the baptism of her last niece, the infanta Sofía, Telma Ortiz returned to her work in the Technical Office of Cooperation of the Spanish Agency of Cooperation (Aeci) in The Philippines, an organism dependent on the State Department. Telma was moving away from the pomp and from the privileges of the palace, from the photos between kings and princes, to return to her daily reality in another different well place. Asia is for two years her place of work and of residence, there she lives with her supposed boyfriend, Enrique, delegated of the Red Cross in Manila. Both share flat and the same interest for the international cooperation.

she's most probably around 5'7" or 5'8". she wasn't wearing heels on both occassions that i saw her. she seems tiny when standing beside the members of the SRF as they're all very tall, but here she looks tall (but that's because we Filipinos are small people.).

hope i was able to help!

Wow, she did not even stay for grandpa's birthday. I can perfectly understand that she is annoyed by the whole media thing and wants to get back to her world. Must be hard for Letizia not to have her sister(s) around so I guess her bond to Paloma has become even closer.

Thelma was in Spain several weeks when Erika died, now she has been one week ... she is a normal worker and she will have a limit of vacations a year, as all. She has chosen a type of life that forces her to live far from her family, but this it is her option.

While she had two sisters in Madrid, they were assuming the familiar charges, but with Letizia's marriage, the things returned to change, and it happened to plunge more Erika. Now with Erika's death, she is Letizia who tries to return to assume them, though she has an already enough complicated and limited life. Jesus Ortiz has re-done his life, has a new wife ... but a daughter has lost, probably already he cannot see his granddaughter so much like before and with Leonor or Sofia will never be able to do what he was doing with Carla. The grandmother Menchu is a relatively independent woman, but to lose, a daughter, a husband and a granddaughter in a few years and to her age, makes age anyone. Paloma is alone and with the responsibility of taking care to her parents, very old and with delicate health (her brother lives out of Spain).
