Yes, she's Maria José Ritta, wife of the Portuguese President, Jorge Sampaio. The Laureus World Sports Awards took place in Portugal, at Casino Estoril, for the second time in a row.

Apparently, Cristina also went to Lisbon with Iñaki, but (perhaps due to the pregnancy?) she didn't go to the Laureus in Estoril.

parade on the Spanish Army Day, in A Coruña

Thanks for the photos, Ana!

Here's an article from ABC, about this parade on the Spanish Army Day:

http://www.abc.es/abc/pg050529/actua...as_desfile.asp

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, along with the Princes of Asturias, presided today, at the Marine Sidewalk of A Coruña, over the Spanish Army Day; an institutional act that was not celebrated in this city since 1985. Almost a thousand of military staff participated in the parade, which was attended by 55000 people, according to the Local Police. This year, the parade paid a "special tribute" to the sea and its people.

From Getty. I think the way Letizia is smiling at Felipe in the first one is really sweet!

The presence of Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofia (who was dressed in a light pink outfit) and of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia (dressed in a pale blue outfit) was welcomed with cheers and applauses by almost 70000 people, who went to La Coruña in order to watch the parade of the three ranks of the armies, as well as the exhibitions made at the beach of Orzán.

Once all the acts were finished, there was a reception hosted at the Municipal Palace of Maria Pita, which was attended by the Kings and the Princes de Asturias. The City Hall of La Corunna presented the King and Queen with a book about the trips made by Isabel II in Castile, Leon, Asturias and Galicia, whereas to the Princes of Asturias it was offered a set made in embroiders of Camariñas.

During the reception, José Bono thanked for the presence of the King and Queen, as he spoke of Spain as a "common and indivisible mother country of all the Spaniards" and, together with the attending authorities, he tosted the King, Spain, the Constitution, the Armies, the Navy, Coruña and Galicia, whereas Don Juan Carlos toasted Spain.

This way was concluded the military celebration, which is celebrated every year around the day of San Fernando.
