Prince Felipe of Spain (L) and his wife Letizia leave the Olympic Main Press Center on August 8, 2008 ahead of the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The streets of Beijing were unusually quiet on August 8, 2008 as a blanket of security was thrown over the city and residents enjoyed a public holiday ahead of the Olympic opening ceremony.

Am watching the live telecast now and have just seen the Princes of Asturias wave to the Spanish delegation. Letizia is wearing a white dress with bamboo(?) prints while Felipe has taken his jacket off and is wearing a blue tie.

And now my dad has turned off the TV. Bummer.

Can I just say how absolutely smashing Mary looks ! Jesus, what a color on her, and I mean the dress and the shoes, but also the tan. WOW . She has such a beautiful body, she really looks great here, and also at the opening ceremony !
