She really, honestly Looks divine in red.
But I am a bit surprised, that she wears red (but: hair up!) when Meeting the Pope. It does not seem to be an "official audience", also the Pope is known for not being strict on protocol.....
but I am still wondering.....

You can tell she was a newsreader, eh?
She killed it, as usual when it comes to do speeches.

QLeitizia wasn't at this conference to meet the Pope. The Pope just "happened to be there". Had it been an official cisit or audience with His Holiness she shoudl have (or would have, probably) worn a white suite.

The presentation of her speech was wonderful. Her former career has definitely been beneficial to her. I am so glad to see that she is finding her own path as a Queen and getting involved in things that she cares about. I have always thought she could be a huge asset to the SRF.

Spanish queen invokes in Rome women's role against malnutrition and obesity La Prensa America in English

"Arriving in the FAO conference room, Pope Francis' face lit up when he saw Queen Letizia of Spain, who had just addressed the meeting. She curtsied before the pope and kissed his ring."

I admit that I am a little surprised by Queen Letizia's speech. The focus of the conference was malnutrition in all it's aspects. But Letizia seemed to zero in on obesity alone as the root of all evil ,with no mention of the polar problem- anorexia and distorted body image.

Obesity caused by poor nutrition is as much a global health concern for young people as is body dysmorphia. Just check out the shocking number of websites promoting emaciated, skeletal looking females as ideals to be aspired to. There are scores of young women who literally starve themselves and deprive their bodies of vital nutrients to look that way.

I found her speech very disappointing for that reason.

Letizia's own body image has been suject to disussions in previous years and still is, for being too thin.

In Belgium we have the opposite these days, the minister of health is a really, really full figured woman, to put it politely.

In both cases, people are questioning the credibility of the representative although they do not stand there for themselves but are representing the monarchy/government.

that's quite true. although as cliches say image isn't important, in this case image is really important... i don't believe letizia suffers from an acute form of anorexia at least, but her raising the sword about obese people is an interesting move. although it's interesting that she pointed this out, as obesity is also a form of malnutrition people never think of.

Moonmaiden, obesity is a problem of malnutrition... other diseases you mentioned are a psychological disease, and therefore were not part of this debate. If you visit the website of the FAO conference, you will see that there is no mention of these issues, because WHO includes them in mental illness.

I do not think you've read the whole speech of the queen, because for me this makes clear the extent to which obesity is a big problem ..."800 million people suffer from chronic hunger and more than 1,400 overweight and obese"...

Duke, Queen Letizia attended as a special guest of FAO / WHO, the representative of the Spanish government at the conference was the Minister of Agriculture.

Queen Letizia, then Princess, went months ago to WHO headquarters in Geneva to prepare this conference. For several years Letiza has worked with Dr. Maria Neira, a Spanish woman who is Director of the Department of Public and Environmental Health of WHO, and is a specialist in endocrinology.

She was special guest what comes with the title and the topic she has chosen to promote. Such events need prominent keynote speakers, whether its Letizia as Queen of Spain or any other royal involved depending on the topic like Silvia, Mary, MM, Maxima etc etc or celebrities like Angelina Jolie or Bono. So unless you hold a prominent title or draw attention or any other reason or are world-known specialist on the topic, you won't get a slot to speak.

For example I watched the news yesterday night and this event was covered but only because the Pope adressed the audience (in Spain probably because Letizia was there). Without 'celebrity' attendance such an event doesnt get the coverage it deserves.

Duke, that's obvious, but what I meant is that the Spanish government was already represented. Also Queen Letizia has no officially linked to UN agencies and other queens and princesses.
