Queen Sofia's biograph Pilar Urbano comments on the changes that lula outlined in the previous post, the new director of communications will have a tough job to change the long-established routines in the House of the King, make it fit for purpose in the 21st century.

Princess Letizia feels misunderstood since its all about her nose or heels, no substance :tongue: a result of the "being dragged along by Felipe at events" stratey of the past years?

This is an old question, but just in case it haven't been answered in another thread...:
No, she doesn't have any lady in waiting(nor does the Princess of Asturias or any Infanta, obviously). When the monarchy was restored, they(and it is often said it was Sofía's idea) ended with the traditional court and everything related to it like the ladies in waiting. For years there's been some articles in the newspapers that some of the spanish aristocracy are mad about things like this(no court anymore, etc...) and feel like the Kings haven't treated them as they deserved ( they were obviously expecting some kind of preferential treatment and they didn't get it). For example, I know three families(a Marques(sp?), a Duke and a widow countess) who were expecting invitations to the Prince of Asturias wedding and didn't get them. I also know the countess was very upset about it:rofl:

The key figures are pictured in the gallery (Secretary General, Head of Househould, Head of Security, Head of Admin, Chief of Military, Chief of Protocol).

The article describes what happened from the early days of JC's Zarzuela to this very day. Many of JC's old pals have retired or died, but he is still firm in his seat: JC, the King, who rules. There is no number 2, not even Felipe. To his men, he is Boss, to his family Patron. To everybody surrounding him one thing is clear: he will die as King.

The newspaper talk about the changes in the King’s Household, which will begin to occur this week. Some Senior Officers who were with King Juan Carlos will go out, and the people of Felipe´s team or who have his confidence, begin to fill these positions.

how exciting that the team are changing, i suspect felipe will bring in more people of his age. i can't wait to hear who he chooses for his secretariat, and who letizia will choose also, as now she will probably get her own secretariat, like queen sofia. where will their staff come from exactly? the diplomatic corps?

lula 06-22-2014 05:26 AM

For now there will not be big changes. This is a time of transition and a lot of work for them, so just change people of team Juan Carlos, for people on the team that Felipe already had, or people he trusted most in the House.

I do not think think the will introduce completely new people, who knows the workings of the house, that will have to be happening over time.

Are there ladies in waitings in Spain?

Charlotte_Aster 06-22-2014 06:52 AM

No Josefine, there are no ladies-in-waiting, maid of honours or mistress of robes in Spain. After the enthronment of Juan Carlos, it was decided, much to the chargrin of the aristocracy, that the old system with camareras mayores, duenas and damas de honor etc. was not to be re-established.
