I am glad to see that there are at least some royals around these days, even from the younger generation, who understand what "being royal" means in terms of outside impression. Letizia clearly doesn't.
How can you compare visiting a hospital to a fundraising gala ? Gala is a gala, even for raising funds for the poors . Rania often dressed down while she was in Jordan visiting schools or hospitals.

Sometimes Letizia dessed too casually for events recently (esp. the audiences), but her outfits today is appropriate for a hospital visit. Queen Mother or even the Queen would have never worn a casual sweater and a pair of wrinkleypants to any official event, but times have changed !

my favourite is the yellow suit - the colour was perfect for spring and summer and the top was really pretty Jamd. She first wore it at the lunch with the Prime Minister a few days prior to their wedding, again in June 2004 at Juan Carlos's patron saints day and in the picture above in the early months of her pregnancy with Leonor

Except for the first pink suit,that looked funny,this collection is very beautiful My top favourite is the yellow suit as well.I consider yellow a "difficult" colour to wear,but this one is gorgeous and Letizia was so young and fresh back then and supported it really well.Did you notice her baby face in those pictures(with the yellow suit)?She has changed a lot since then.

yes the pink ruffled skirt was never one of my favourites - although it in a spanish style and she has never worn it again (only to the wedding of Infanta Pilar's son in Dec 04)

Letizia today at the lunch with the Russian President 2nd March 2009

the dress is very elegant & pretty but the combination with black stockings and shoes looks very harsh. nude stockings & shoes in the tone of the dress would have been better. anyway letizia looks much better polished than she did when cristina kirchner came for lunch a few weeks ago.

I agree about the stockings & shoes (I just thought I shouldn't look down...),but we have to appreciate the fact that this dress could mark her "back-to-elegance" period!!Welcome back,Letizia!!

I love this dress. I am so pleased that she recycled it. It is perfect on her. I do agree with DoM about the stockings. Nude stockings would have looked less severe. It is nearly spring, and she should consider lightening up the colors of her wardrobe.

Letizia looks really beautiful.
The black stockings and the shoes are not a great choice, but they don't ruin the outfit. Nice hairdo and make up.
I only don't like the model posture.

she often does a "twisting the hips", sofia never does. i wouldn't call it posing rather being unable to produce a good posture / body language. it actually looks insecure or silly, if one leg is shorter than the other.

the russian president ... after putin the judoka and bare-chested fisherman they got a jason-bourne-lookalike. i bet he speaks 8 languages and can fight off people in 16 different martial arts styles.

I'm not too fond of the grey colour for her. This dress is also a bit too tight for her, it doesn't fit well.

The pink suit with ruffles was one of my favourites!! With a beautiful hairdo and elegant shoes she was something different, not at all boring.

She looks great. I liked this dress the first time she wore it and I still do
I also like the black stockings, and her make-up and hair are lovely.
But I don´t like her shoes
