Does anyone felt like I did when you saw that kiss Felipe gave to Letizia???? I tought that Philip's kiss to Mathilde was a bit lame but know I've changed my mind. Felipe should've taken some tips from Frederick. That was a real kiss :P

I just found this pic of the wedding cake of Felipe and Letizia (thanks to Ademar in GREMB). The cake had 2m and more than 150kg. Was created by Francisco Torreblanca.

the cake


And lurking in el Mundo i foundo this great pic of the couple at the arrival to the Royal Palace, listening the "Gaiteros" playing the "Asturias, patria querida" (the anthom of Asturias) :flower:

happy couple

I totally agree with you. Frederik and Mary looked so in love and Felipe and Letizia looked like they didn't want to be there. (I mean during the wedding) A bit of a dissapointment if you ask me!

Did I just miss them, or was there no United States representation at the wedding? Thought that was a wee bit odd.
I gather the wedding occurred 1 day after Spain withdrew its troops from Iraq.

Ah, yes....forgot about that. All is clear now.
in my opinion that was a really horrible attitute from the united states. the war has nothing to be with the spanish monarchy and as they have always had a very good relation under the past government it would have been correct that they send at least a member of bush&#39;s government, as nearly all the countries in america did. [/b][/quote]
Why would the US be invited? They are not family, and we don&#39;t have royals here.

Really?? I don&#39;t really think that&#39;s the reason. Perhaps they were just shy to do it. But as a watcher, I was very very disappointed not to see it.

What other royal couples have failed to kiss for real at the balcony scene?

Philippe and Mathilde of Belgium and every other couple that got married before Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. Charles and Diana were the first to kiss on the balcony that I know of. Even then it was a really fast kiss. You&#39;d think it was long from looking at the photo, but I saw it in a video clip and it&#39;s not.

I think perhaps the couple was shy because of the culture of Spain and King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia being there. The King and Queen seem very prim, proper, "old school" monarchial style. There did seem to be affection on Felipe&#39;s and Letizia&#39;s part.

the majority populous in the US is Spanish .. of some sort.. I am sure there are representatives that went.. we are not aware of whom. Perhaps the Ambassador.. I agree that since Spain pulled out of the war.. it may have had something to do with it.

I would like to see photos from guests of the Royal Families of Romania, Prussia, Liechtenstein and Austria, and of HRH Prince Michael of Greece, please.

Thanks in advance.

Stunning backdrops to springs&#39; royal nuptials

The Spanish capital came to a virtual halt on May 22 as, resplendent in full military regalia, Prince Felipe pledged his troth to beautiful former journalist Letizia Ortiz.

And no visit to Madrid would be complete without a tour of the locations that played centre stage on that joyful day - the city&#39;s magnificent Almudena cathedral and the royal palace where the celebratory banquet took place.

Cutting a green swath across the slope behind the 18th-century palace are the classically designed Sabatini gardens, while the tranquil Plaza del Oriente, directly in front of the palace, is a great place to take in one of Madrid&#39;s wonderful sunsets.

Madrid is resplendent with scenic spots. Sip a cool drink in the historic Plaza Mayor, for example, or catch some sun in the fountain-filled Retiro Park where a plethora of street performers are on hand to entertain. Just a few steps away lies the famed Prado museum, home to the works of some of the world&#39;s greatest classical painters. Art-lovers will also enjoy browsing in the capital&#39;s equally renowned Thyssen and Reina Sofia galleries.

The long-awaited Madrid nuptials between Crown Prince Felipe and his bride Letizia Ortiz took place in one of Europe&#39;s most buzzing and vibrant capitals

The Spanish capital is renowned for its stunning architecture and striking skyline

The imposing Puerta de Alcala monument is one of city&#39;s defining landmarks

A popular destination for many visitors is the Bernabeu stadium, home ground of Real Madrid and David Beckham

After the wedding, a sumptuous banquet was laid out for guests inside the Palacio Real which, when not being used for royal celebrations, is open to members of the public

The fountain of Cibeles is just one of a series which dot the city&#39;s main thoroughfare. It is here that victorious Real Madrid players celebrate their success

With its elegant painted facade and centuries-old architecture, the Plaza Mayor, or main square, makes a great place to pause for a coffee in the warm Spanish sun

Located at the heart of Madrid, the royal palace forms an impressive feature on the city&#39;s western skyline

I believe so, but I could be wrong.

Thanks Xicamaluca :flower: but i can&#39;t open the pic, it says &#39;you are forbiddden to view this page&#39; :( [/b][/quote]
Me, too. It says I&#39;m "forbidden to view". Everytime I see something like this, since I&#39;ve been a member of LTR for some time now, I instantly get a tummy-ache, thinking I did something terrible. "Forbidden" is a very strong word and it scares me. I don&#39;t understand this at all.

Frightenly,
Elizajane
