This article claims that not announcing the lunch is only one example of Zarzuela's strategy to keep Letizia in the background as much as possible, even when it comes down to an own agenda. With Felipe sporting the charisma of a floor lamp and Zarzuela fearing a Spanish Diana scenario, Zarzuela did not hesitate to cut down Letizia from day one after the engagement where she dared to give a taster of her fresh personality.

Maybe understandable from the institutional point of view but tragic for Letizia herself, who wasn't allowed to stay the young, modern and successful woman she was, ready to conquer the world, but had to transform in what we see today, reduced to an accessory whose presence will attract the media to write about her clothes or what looks different in her face today. It's regrettable that Zarzuela's strategy department wasn't brave enough to just let her be. People know who's the important heir and the unimportant consort anyway, no need to demostrate the fact every day. Thank god that there have been and still are monarchies these days where the consort was or is allowed to be him- /herself and successfully create his/her own respected position.

But Maxima was only in Barcelona for a private visit, I don't see the need for a photo session for the lunch. It's understandable that Zarzuela wants to 'promote' the heir first with their 'limited' resource since Felipe is at an awkward 'waiting to be the King' position. Now with the reduced role of the Infantas (some thought at the beginning it would be the Queen since she was gettting older, but it didn't happen), Cristina is heading to Washington DC, I'm sure Letizia will have a bigger role in the future.

Why would there be a need to announce the lunch meeting between Maxima and Letizia. I believe it's not official and besides Maxima was in Barcelona with her own agenda not concerning the crown otherwise there should have been official pictures. I don't see any reason why Casa Real will not announce the lunch just because they want to limit Letizia's presence. Oh boy! that's ridiculous. I for one believe that Letizia's role was somewhat "lessened" if we are to based this on the number of solo duties but c'mon a simple lunch to be announced in the national tv? Yes, many people will be happy since they know that they'll be expecting pictures but hey we had some, too. No need to say Zarzuela is limiting Letizia's presence since there was indeed Letizia's presence as evidenced by the pictures we just saw.

Anyway, away from the comments why it's not broadcasted...I love to see both CPss having some time together and with Cristina.

Hello Lula,

Who is Infante Don Carlos? Why is he an Infante? I thought only the sons of the King or the Prince/Princess of Asturias can have the title of Infante?

Thanks.

Don Carlos is the first cousin of Juan Carlos. The mother of Juan Carlos, Maria de las Mercedes de Borbon y Orleans and the father of Don Carlos, Alfonse II de Borbon are siblings.

Don Carlos is also styled Duke of Calabria.

The King decided to grant the Infante's title to him according to this article of the law.

The Royal Household of His Majesty the King_ Welcome

Likewise, The King may grant the dignity of Infante or Infanta and the form of address of Your Royal Highness to those persons he shall deem fit of such a grace given the exceptional circumstances that concur.
