Wow, he seems to be very happy...maybe because he is sleeping something without children jeje...no, really I think he is happy because a new girl is coming and he will be the "king of his home".
:lol: Yes, but I find that on some pics,those of his arrival at Mexico City, he looks a little bit tired ( or it's the red eyes effect of the fotos ?) anyway, it would understable because since three days it's yet a true marathon between all his meetings.
We can understand when we see the Prince's agenda that Letizia had to stay at home.... with her so cute little Infanta:bunny:
