The Prince and the Princess only go to the bulls for official commitments. The Bullfight of the Beneficence has a long history, and its history was born with the Spanish Monarchy, the Royal House has a commitment.

Surely the Queen and the Infanta Cristina have had to come to the bulls at some time, though now they could allow not do it. The Queen Victoria Eugenia hated them and she went because it was her obligation.

I heard Letizia was asked yesterday if she liked the bulls, she said she liked it. Perhaps Felipe also likes it, at least he never dislikes it. They are not huge fans like the King or Elena, but don't mind to watch it once a year IMO.

i loved the pictures of maxima, letizia and cristina together, nice that they all found a slot to meet in between the busy schedules.

the article mentions that they had as starters grilled vegetables (letizia), ox carpaccio (cristina) and sauteed mushrooms (maxima) and that they all had scallops and veal as main. "they didn't order deserts but cristina and letizia had tea and maxima asked for an americano"

Doa Letizia es una inyeccin de modernidad. eldiariomontanes.es
If I understood correctly, this is an interview of Sabino Fernndez Campo, who has been working at the Casa Real for seventeen years.

I heard this lunch date has become controversial. I read the write-ups online, but I don't understand Spanish. What's so wrong about two crown princesses going to lunch together when they both happened to be in the same city? Geez, pathetic press.

The only problem is that in Spain there is too many competition between the press and protests who did not obtain the photo, and they have protested because the Royal Family did not announce this lunch. The Princess Maxima was in a private visit, and because of it the Royal House considered this act as private, but I believe that it is evident that the situation of the press in Spain and Holland is not the same.

Why would Casa Real have to announce this lunch date? It wasn't an official event. Are they speculating that Letizia had something to do with it again? They're so hungry for pictures. It might have been just a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing like, "hey Maxi what time will your meeting be over? wanna grab something to eat later?" I remember they didn't have a problem when the Orange family went to Barcelona and hung out with the Urdangarin family and the Royal house neither announced it. Is it because it's Letizia?

The media interests are not the same. Those who didn't get the pictures of Letizia with who and who would always complain, it's not a big deal anymore.
