Let us see about moderate consumption. As you know, the appetite comes with eating...

I like this bag. Yes, it is very expensive; however, it is lovely. I am not surprised that a royal would carry an expensive bag.

Burberry quilted jackets and trenches might be viewed as a good investment. A bag by Burberry is not somewhat I would invest such sum of money into. Some models are just adequate, whereas others are tacky. I would say that bags by Dior, Chanel, Loius Vuitton (collections "Suhali" and "Epi" only), or Hermes can be considered as a worthy inverstment because of their timelessness. At the same time, Crown Princess Letizia is free to buy items she likes.

She spent 1120 in a bag, but she could also large amounts of money on clothes, shoes, jewelry etc and she quite moderate her consumption. I hope this does not bother her ardent opponents.
actually this bag could have been a birthday or Christmas gift -- quite common to purchase a beautiful bag to give to sister, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law or just a friend.

I think you are right!
It seems that the Spanish Royals buy or receive many clothes from Burberry in this period. Letizia's coat and bags, the little Infantas' jackets, the shirts of Cristina's kids in the Christmas card...
Anyway, 1325 euros for that (IMO ugly) bag is expensive, but Letizia has worn an even more expensive Bottega Veneta bag (unless it was a fake one, link) a few weeks ago. Good quality bags are expensive and I prefer Letizia wearing good quality clothes rather than the bad quality ones, but above all I totally agree with Al_bina

i think it's a lovely bag. besides, if letizia didn't "fall" for expensive fashion in 5 years, i doubt she will now. i think she is quite well-grounded in that sense. she seems to have some other priorities and that's very nice to see when compared to other (female and newly incorporated) members of royalty.

however, i would very much doubt it's a christmas present (letizia wore it before christmas, around november) or a freebie: that's okay for celebrities, but i guess everything the royals wear that has been a gift (specially expensive gifts) is carefully studied before being shown off or wore at official engagements.

Unlike other royal women Letizia doesn't wear expensive designer clothing or couture and has often been seen wearing high-street brands like Mango and Zara to public events.

So I hardly think it's going to break the bank if she chooses to splurge on an expensive handbag once in a while.

Yet another example of the eternal double standard regarding her wardrobe imho.

Well, I agree. I don't see a problem with Letizia wearing designer brands like that once in a while.. just like you said.

Anyway, the purse isn't my cup of tea. I don't like it although it's a designer purse(just joking) .

Being a designer purse does not automatically make it a pretty purse. And it certainly isn't my cup of tea, Or cup of coffee! But then, Letizia's accessories aren't my favorites to begin with....

I saw the bag in Burberry at the weekend and it's a lot nicer "in person", I didn't realise it was the same one until I looked closely.

Letizia, take the Burberry bag money and apply it towards some decent looking shoes!

Interesting, Little star! Very often photos do not do justice to a product and it ends up looking either better or worse "in person". I guess I am just not a fan of all the 'handles and straps'. :)

Elena's daughter also has a Burberry jacket and wore a Burberry swimsuit in the Christmas card. Perhaps the SRF received very good discount on Burberry, or those were the gifts from Queen Sofia who liked to shop in London once a while . Letizia's Burberry bag is a nice casual looking bag, big enough to have a few diapers for little Sofia.

Letizia doesn't have a Bottega Veneta bag, only a look alike from Varela.
I'd love to see Letizia buy a few good quality gowns, but you need to add a 'ZERO' at the end to buy a Valentino couture though.

Didn't Queen Sofia give Letizia a Loewe purse as a gift right after she became engaged to Felipe?

I really don't like this bag at all I think burberry has muicht nicer bags than this one wicht I find really ugly! Also I would love to see Letizia again wearing some casual clothes, I like to see her in Jeans and some casual jackets, she looks nice and different. It is lovely that letizia buys some Mango and Zara clothes, they are very affordable for most of us and it is easy to copy her

Troonopvolgers!: Burberry jas en tas. im not a huge fan of the Burberry bag but i prefer it when Letizia carries it in her hand using the short handels as it seems to look better when used like that rather than wearing it over her shoulder
