Life in royal ranks
"Almost all monarchies are suffering from the same problem -- the arrival of young people from the bourgeoisie, even from everyday society. In many cases they are contributing modernity to a medieval system. But in others they bring vulgarity," said Jaime Penafiel, the doyen of royal watchers in Madrid. (Touché. I wonder who he's talking about? )
he once, not so long ago, said the same phrase... and he was refering to mette marit
he said something like "there are commoners who bring new blood to monarchy, also with touches of elegance, modernity and responsability, such as maxima, mary, alexandra......... (he gave nearly all of the names of the young princesses in europe, and, surprinsigly, letizia's... - he doesn't really like her) But in others they bring vulgarity, as in the case of mette marit"

It will be broadcast in the US on Univision at 5am dst.

What is dst? And when exactly is the wedding? If I missed the Danish one, I am not missing this one.
DST- Daylight Saving Time.

So if you live in New York (or any state that shares the same time zone with New York) the wedding will be on at 5 am. [/b][/quote]
5 am&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

The odds of me getting up that early(or late depends on how you look at it) is very low.
Who schedules these things anyways?
Last Question: When they say 5:00 AM do they mean 5:00 the 23(Sunday) Or the 5:00 Am on the 22.

The question is probably confusing, but I absolutely don&#39;t know when it comes on. :(

Another wedding gift :P This time from the "Reales Academias Nacionales". A sculpture from Letizia in her journalist times. It was made by Julio López Hernández, that said that this gift represents "&#39;el diálogo y la comunicación entre la realeza y el pueblo" (the dialog and comunication between the royalty and the people)

The gift

the round of the royal wedding:

it will pass through the cibeles, the neptuno, paseo del prado, atocha, gran via and alcala.

(THE OFFICIAL NOTICE

El esperado recorrido que el próximo sábado harán el príncipe Felipe de Borbón y Letizia Ortiz cuando abandonen la catedral de la Almudena convertidos en flamantes esposos, incluye varias de las más célebres arterias de Madrid, como la Gran Vía, la calle de Alcalá y el Paseo del Prado.

Tras la ceremonia religiosa que dará comienzo hacia las 11H00 en la catedral de la Almudena, el vehículo nupcial, precedido por la guardia municipal y escoltado por la guardia real, partirá rumbo a la Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Atocha.


El recorrido podrá ser reemplazado por otro alternativo si los servicios de seguridad así lo consideran, indicaron este martes fuentes oficiales.

En primer lugar, el cortejo pasará por la Plaza de España, desde donde tomará la Gran Vía, a cuyos lados se levantan varios de los más conocidos y emblemáticos edificios de Madrid, como la sede de Telefónica.

Al llegar a la intersección de la Gran Vía y la calle de Alcalá, el cortejo se dirigirá por esta última en dirección del Paseo del Prado, arbolada arteria madrileña que abre la fuente de la Cibeles, a la que rodean majestuosos edificios como el Palacio de Telecomunicaciones y el Banco de España.

Los novios irán por el lateral derecho del Paseo del Prado, pasando por el frente del Museo Thyssen, la plaza de Neptuno y llegarán a la glorieta de Carlos V, donde se levantará el &#39;Bosque de los ausentes&#39;, una estructura metálica circular sobre la cual la alcaldía colocó 192 olivos y cipreses, en memoria de las 191 víctimas de los atentados del 11 de marzo en Madrid y de un policía muerto en servicio en el marco de las investigaciones.

Dejando a su derecha la estación de trenes de Atocha, conocida en el mundo entero porque fue uno de los blancos de los atentados de Madrid, el cortejo de los novios se dirigirá por la Avenida Ciudad de Barcelona hasta la Basílica de la Virgen de Atocha, a quien Letizia Ortiz, ya convertida en Princesa de Asturias, ofrecerá su ramo de novia.

El trayecto de vuelta será el mismo, pero por el lateral izquierdo del Paseo del Prado, que pasa junto a la renombrada pinacoteca. Los novios regresarán hacia las 14H30 al Palacio Real, donde tras la sesión de fotografías de rigor, presidirán el banquete nupcial al que asistirán unos 1.600 invitados, entre éstos unos 30 jefes de Estado y de Gobierno y representantes de unas 40 familias reales)

Does anybody know if any American TV networks will carry any of the wedding yet? I know Telemundo is supposed to be having some kind of coverage but I hadn&#39;t heard about any non-cable networks covering it.

OK. I know Univision will be broadcasting the Spanish royal wedding live on television. Can someone who knows Spanish please tell me if Univision will be broadcasting the wedding live over the internet?

Here&#39;s the website.
