Well said, crm. With a few exceptions, I get the same feelings. It is as though she is just going through the motions...

Some kind of crisis?
At some point I thought, maybe it's a statement. But, on the other hand, maybe she just doesn't care?

The shawl seem like it would be very annoying to wear, especially with any
wind at all.

And that costume belt thing with her pants looks so cheap for the occasion.

I don't think she doesn't care about the event, perhaps she doesn't think the clothes are as important as the posters on the royal forums, or she got a bad advice from her designer, obviously Varela didn't think clothes were too casual or inappropriate.

The clothes are a bit casual for the event, she looked good in them though. The blouse is quite nice, probably it's the silk outfit specially made by Varela mentioned by Carlos in his article posted here before.

It is great that Crown Princess Letizia does not care about the clothes. Should she care about the appropriateness of a certain ensemble? I guess no. It's high time old rules were revamped. Who needs them? However, I strongly believe that true aristocrats are always dressed appropriately. It is unfortunate that not so many of them are left.
Historically speaking, Spain had a lot of gold, but France had a impeccable taste in fashion. I think the same is true today.

That's why Elena recycled her Chanel coat bought by her ex, she looked the best.

No, I didn't mean she doesn't care about the event. I meant, maybe she doesn't care what people think about what she wears. I think her outfits somehow must be accepted by the Spanish Royal Court, IDK, maybe the Queen, maybe the King. But there is (again, just my speculations) some type of protocol to follow, I would assume, so, if she continues to wear what she wears, maybe that's fine with the RF?

This is a very unfortunate outfit. If I wasn't a "royal watcher" it would give me the impression that this woman has no idea how to dress for the ocassion. It is downhill from Letizia.

I do not think is great she doesn't care about her outfits cause, she is a princess, actually she is THE princess of Spain and at the end of the day, she DOES CARE and she thinks she looks wonderfully and hip and modern when in reality, this past year, has been a parade of ugly not adequate for the ocasssion outfits

Isn't that bizzare then, that she keeps thinking her outfits are great while they are not? I mean, wouldn't be there someone to tell her she is not doing as great job as she thinks she is? Assuming, of course, her outfits ARE not great. But, what if they are to her as much as to whoever is responsible for the Royal wardrobe? Guess we can speculate a lot, but we won't ever know what is really happening there. Somehow I think her choices must be accepted by the SRF, otherwise we would sure hear something about the trouble in that area.

I thought she looked good. I like the wrap around and felt she looked quite charming. It must be the Spanish in her to dress like she did and I felt it was moving seeing her represent the country on national day. I don't see where she is wrong. Enjoy seeing her. Thanks for all who share their pics.

Cool

Letizia looked okay, but in past years she's worn more formal attire. She sticks out from the rest of the Royal Family like the one who is out of the loop. It's Spain's National Day and I think she should have put a little more thought into her outfit. I suppose with the pants and blouse she could have worn a long knee length coat and scarf around her neck, that would have been better than that cape.

Letizia does know what is suitable and what isn't for an event. Look at her in the past years, she has been dressing quite well for each and every occasion but this past 2 years its the attitude of I don't bother. If she is on a budget, then maybe a full suit from a less designer in Spain than Valera with half an outfit.

I'd like to see that outfit again but at a less formal event, a more day to day event.

A la princesa Letizia le gusta destacar

Letizia se suma a la insumisión de Chacón y Trini "capta" al Rey


Doña Letizia, acusada de saltarse el protocolo y dejar en evidencia a Don Felipe


La recepción de los reyes en el Palacio Real, más concurrida que otros años: banqueros, políticos, periodistas, empresarios e Isabel Preysler. Letizia no siguió el protocolo


¿Traje corto o pantalón en el Palacio Real?


Doña Letizia nos sorprende siempre

She must be very naive if she thought that her outfit would not cause any controversy. I don't believe that she doesn't think what she is going to wear, someone that doesn't want attention chooses a clasicail suit not something so casual and moreover she broke the etiquette as woman are required to wear skirts. If she wanted to wear trousers as some of the members of the government at least she should have chosen a formal suit not that.

Probably the press before writing these things, should ask the real experts in protocol.

The term "short suit" is used traditionally in the etiquette, but for many years the protocol accept that women wear pants, because it is a clothes that dresses with the same normality that the skirt. If we use literally the names of the etiquette (cocktail dress, long dress) the women could never wear trousers.

It would be ridiculous enough to force the women to dress skirt in the 21st century.

The Queen dresses her "summer pajamas" in many dinners and nobody accuses her of breaking the protocol for not dressing cocktail dress.

The same thing happened when the press criticized the Minister of Defense in the Pacua Militar for dressing trousers ... when she had asked to the experts of protocol of defense and the Royal House.

lula,
I am surprised to read your arguments defending Crown Princess Letizia's pants by dragging her mother-in-law into the discussion. It is so trite. Queen Sofia is the Queen. That says it all for me. Additionally she has got a privilege of her age.

If she had wore a formal suit as the vice president or many other female guests this would be only an anecdote. Instead she wore a ridiculous outfit by all standars. To justify her outfit saying that she wants to be austere is nonsensical, she could have repeated one of her previous outfits as the rest of the SRF did.

She wanted to be talked about yesterday and she achieved it, if the vanitatis article is truthfull even the high ranking militars talked about her outfit.

Sometimes the royal outfits can be liked or not depending on taste but this time it's beyond that. It's one of the most special days in Spain and she presents herself like that??? I thought that the shorts must be her worst outfit but this is even worse.

The queen knows when she can breach the etiquette and when she can't, she doesn't like hats and she avoids them making the etiquette of formal events in Spain more casual than in other countries but none of her outfits can be compared to this one, moreover it's nearly an insult.

She does look more dressed than the Princess was, that's true. And more elegant.

Letizia is creating some attention for the wrong reasons, whats new. Casareal will be delighted about all the headlines caused by Letizias fashion choice, especially the one asking who is wearing the trousers in the Asturias' household. Obviously not Felipe, who used to be under Mummys thumb and is now under wifeys thumb

There is a difference between wearing trousers and Letizias outfit. Trousers would have looked perfectly fine with a decent top, jacket or coat.

The outfit is ok but not for this event, as usual. For every day events, Letizia wears clothes that other people wear for leasure and for the superformal events she wears clothes that she is supposed to wear for everyday events.

She is the CP and should dress the part, out of respect for her position.

To mention Queen Sofia in that respect is beyond ridiculous. I am no fan of her pyjama collection but I have yet to come across an outfit that is unsuitable for the respective event she is attending.

Seems that "following the priceless example of the Queen" as stated on engagement day hasnt quite worked out for Letizia. You either have class or you dont, it isnt suddenly there because of marriage.
