I agreed, I would not said "disgusting" but inappropriate for a Queen in a formal presentation

queen happiness: priceless! :)
funny that he confused her name (particularly since felicidad and letizia are not two words that resemble...), but i liked how letizia handled it.
the video is here, you can hear her speaking in english:

Doña Letizia, la 'Reina Felicidad': 'Me puede llamar así, ¡suena muy bien!'

what's wrong with her trousers? i liked her blue trousers at the red cross event...

but i agree on the capri pants: not fit for a queen on duty.

Has anyone come across a video the Queen's full speech at the Red Cross event? Thank you

Thank you so much for posting this video! For the first time ever, I have been able to hear Queen Letizia speak in English and with that I was able to get an impression of her personality and character that I could not do when hearing her speak Spanish. I was struck by her warmth and the genuine way in which she spoke to her hosts. She reminded me a little of Maxima in her speech.

While you are absolutely correct that her capris were not appropriate for that event, that still did not make them disgusting, which means an altogether different thing.

Her reaction was priceless! Great sense of humor and a wonderful way to handle it. So much more relaxed as queen. I'm loving what I'm seeing!

Because Capri pants are good to stay at home, at garden or going on vacation in Palma but not for a oficial event. Look at the girls attending to receive scolarships, they look good for the occasion, but the Queen didn't wear in the right way.

I do too. She seems so much more relaxed and looks to be enjoying what she's doing. Wonder what her aunt (who said Letizia would never come to reign) is thinking
