Letizia prepares itself to assume her protocolic functions
 
Doņa Letizia prepares itself to assume her protocolic functions


Princess de Asturias has seen how the summer period located it in the attention center. Doņa Letizia has been the newness of this summer in Majorca, where curiosity has waked up. 25 of August. Ever since autumn became serious the past its relation with Don Felipe, Doņa Letizia Ortiz knows what is to happen from a side to the other of the camera. Back it was left the persecution of mass media, the blunders of the bodyguards of the pair and the reading of record to the Peņafiel teacher. But what she does not stop he is morbo?en good sense? that the wife of the Prince wakes up. Doņa Letizia has monopolized the curiosity in this summer, as much of the average ones as of the Spaniards. It has been the newness. After all, of the same form that raised to sense of expectancy in his first exits and attendances to official acts next to its fathers-in-law, the Kings, the summering in Palma de Mallorca was not less going to be. And of course that it has not been. The summer period has been revealed fruitful as far as information related to Princes de Asturias. Doņa Letizia, that, according to own confession, follows everything what it says itself on the pair, has been able to see how its name appeared related to the news of diverse. Thus, in these months been she has bound to the regatas in Balearic, where next to Reina she went to animate to the Prince; to the entrance in a select club, the one of cocktails with names of the European royalty that are elaborated in the Italian city of Milan; the problems that it gives to try to obtain the anonymity at the time of having supper, like in the Majorcan Manolo House; to exert of aunt with the nephews; and to even discover, like collateral effect, that in the peculiar Commission of 11-M the exdirector of the National Center of Inteligencia (CNI), Jorge Dezcallar, denies that it spied on the fiance'e of Don Felipe. Nevertheless, all this has been pure filfa next to the two news that have gotten to affect certain foundations. In order to begin, those of the Balearic Government and other authorities of the archipelago, after knowing information on the possibility that the Princes were looking for a place of own summering in Asturias. After all, the first samples already have appeared east summer. The vacations of the pair have not been reduced only to Palm, including Asturian visit and travels to Santo Domingo. Everything changes in the life, and the civil state of the Prince also has done it. So, why was not going to look for the real pair another place to rest, more intimate? Next to this, the rumors on a possible pregnancy put to Spain in agitation state. He had not been strange that Doņa Letizia was in state. Sooner or later, it will be it. But the illusions that awoke on the matter returned in anything when from the Real House the information was denied. What must be will be, but to its due time. And although the summer, therefore, has been movidito, hopes that Doņa Letizia has taken forces for the next season, in which will have to accompany its husband in multitude by official acts. Nevertheless, the Princess seems to be that she walks deluded by to have given yes the offer to preside over the acts of IV the Centenary of the publication of the Quijote, that will be celebrated the next year.

Letizia, Gemma, Felipe. Not that this is at all important but Gema is listed on the Olympic web site as being 5'4" and if Letizia doesn't have any heels on then she must be between 5'6"-5'7".

She was wearing flats so I guess that's finally settled, right? I always said she wasn't short but average height. It's just she's so petite framed and with such a tall big framed husband she looks tiny. In any case--thanks for the detective work!

You're most welcome. ;) Yeah, I mean when you think about it 5'4" is slightly above average for women...hard to believe but true! So, Letizia is above average. And with her tiny frame she just looks small especially since Felipe is a giant!

carlota 08-27-2004 03:38 PM

You think Gema is shorter than 5'4"? You think she's more like 1.62 or 5'2"?

So she is about 5'1"-5'2". Letizia is still, imho, a great princess whether she's 5'4" or 5'7". ;) Thanks for the info, Carlota.

donnaK 08-28-2004 12:28 AM

160cm is 5'3'', 161cm is about 5'31/2''. Thus some websites list GEMA at 5'4''.

lucys 08-28-2004 08:55 AM

Just out of curiosity to those who have been at this royal watching stuff longer than I. Was there a similarly long drawn out interest in Alexandra's height, especially since she is also married to a very tall man?

Thank you, donnaK. You're right. My mistake. What is 162cm? I thought that would be 5'3" 1/2 inches because 163cm is 5'4".

Therefore, Letizia is probably between 5'6" and 5'7" (168cm and 170cm). But, whatever her height is it's not really what counts in the scheme of things...

lucys, I don't remember people making such a fuss over Alexandra's height when she married Joachim. And, what I am curious about is why someone's height be so important? Alexandra is a perfectly normal height as is Letizia so why so much negativity about them being what some people call short?

Felipe and Letizia in Athens today.

dancingqueen83 08-29-2004 12:18 PM

Okay everyone I converted 1.61 with a conversion calculator and here is the result:

* 1.61 meters = 5.28215223 feet

Letizia is about 5'5" at the most and how did you know she was in flats?

If you want to repeat the result just go to google and type 1.61 meters to feet.

legnavirginia2006 08-29-2004 12:33 PM
