A real entailment
The relation of Ribadesella with the Spanish Monarchy goes back to century XVI. The Marquesses of Argfüelles received in their villa to a good number of regal visitors


JUAN GARCÍA/RIBADESELLA


http://canales.elcomerciodigital.com...a_031117_1.jpgPREGONERA. Letizia Ortiz, in the celebrations of Ribadesella./N. ACEBAL The narrow relation that the future Princess of Asturias and Reina of Spain has with the council of Ribadesella is not product of the chance. Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano feels great predilection by the landscapes of this council and the small village of Sardeu where their grandparents reside to pater to us. Up to here one approached whenever its work was allowed it. Nevertheless, it will not be the first member of the Royal Family who has chosen east corner of Asturias to rest.
The bonds of Ribadesella with the Spanish Monarchy go back to century XVI, when Carlos I of Spain (V of Germany) and all his séquito spendt the night in this council after his unexpected disembarkation in Bowls. In his trip to Santander they did scale in this villa days 24 and 25 of September of 1517 and were entertained here with in excess festejos and of bulls.

The following regal bow is much more near, took several forever in arriving. It was in 1912 July, when King Alfonso XIII visits the villa of the Marquesses of Argfüelles in the sandy ground of Santa Marina. Its arrival was greeted with safe of tube and sirens of the berthed steamers in the port. Fabrics and garlands of flowers invaded the hotel of the Marquesses. Alfonso XIII participated those days in an aid of clay pigeon disputed in the field of fire improvised in the riosellana beach.

Two years but late, in the summer of 1914, Infant Paz de Borbón passed itself by the same hotel. In 1926 Prince de Asturias did, Alfonso de Borbón. And in 1929, its brother Jaime de Borbón, Infant of Spain. An ample relation of illustrious and real visitors who used to receive the Marquesses of Argfüelles in their villa-hotel of Ribadesella, turned today Great Hotel of Sella.

' Spain Salvajé

That regal custom was lost in passing of the time until, in December of 1995, the present Prince of Asturias, Felipe de Borbón, arrived by these earth to participate in the running of one of the chapters of the TVE program ' Spain Salvajé. A documentary one that was dedicated to the reproduction of the salmon in the Sella river. That event took place the 2 of December of 1995 and, during his stay in Ribadesella, it had lunch with the local authorities in the same villa that had visited its great-grandfather 83 years before. But hours before that food it had opportunity to be soaked of popularity in the nucleus ribereño of the Alisal. There it greeted his neighbors and, in ' the Llagarón', its company/signature printed in the fabric of a handkerchief was flattered with a good breakfast, leaving.

The relation of Felipe de Borbón with the council of Ribadesella had begun years before that visit thanks to its sentimental relation with Isabel Sartorius. The one that at that time was its officious pretendiente it chose a large house of this villa to separate from the noise of cameras and flashes of the photographers. Here it tried to hide itself worldwide, but it did not obtain it either. Those visits also woke up the rumors of encounters with earth Prince Felipe as much as on the high seas. Isabel Sartorius still today continues visiting of incognito the riosellano council.

It is the same municipality chosen by the future Queen of Spain to spend the summer. And it is that Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano always confessed that the village of Sardeu, where their grandparents reside, is its preferred place to enjoy its vacations. Who knows if the next year will accompany to its Prince husband to give the prize to the Exemplary Town from Asturias to the locality of Tereñes, in which will be its room attempt to obtain so prestigious award. In Ribadesella already they have begun to make bets.

What nobody puts in doubt is that this new real bow with the council will be very positive and will facilitate the tourist promotion of the municipality. "Spain is massively monarchic and I believe that all this will be absolutely positive as far as promotion and to our influence in the state scope. The only thing which desire is that the princes come much this way and who that serves to present the world these hidden beauties ", assures Toni Silva, president of Promotion of the Tourism (Foturi). And it is that, in his opinion, "it will be the definitive accolade of Asturias; it will be fundamental so that a little less costs to us to leave to sell our tourist supply ".

The Princes appear to Torimbia

Don Felipe and dona Letizia ate with the grandmother of the Princess in Ribadesella and, in the evening, walked along Llanes's council
Ribadesella and Llanes. These were the scenesof the second day of the Princes in Asturias, in theirsummer stay. Don Philip and dona Letizia played to the mishap with the mass media, did not do any put one, but they gives the impression of which they fulfilled their initial aim: to visit the programmed places. Accompanied of the paternal grandmother of the Princess, the journalist Menchu Álvarez del Valle, they had lunch calmly in a restaurant riosellano and in the middle of the evening they gave a walk. The viewing-point between Torimbia and Niembro was, according to neighbors' testimonies, one of their destinies.

Sardéu (Ribadesella), Beatriz F. MORÍN/
Pedro ZUAZUA

"Magicians". This way there defined to the Princes of Asturias one of the scanty clients of the restaurant riosellano House of the Rio that yesterday they managed to see them. The lucky one, because don Philip and dona Letizia passed almost unnoticed in their second day of summer stay in the Principality. Inflexible with the press, the Princes gained yesterday the item and scarcely they were seen by the scenes that they visited, all in the councils of Ribadesella and Llanes. The couple accompanied of the paternal grandmother of dona Letizia, Menchu Álvarez of the Valley, left Sardéu's house on two o'clock in the afternoon to eat discreetly in the terrace of House of the Rio. The owners of the restaurant have preferred guarding the secret of the menu, but some details came out. One of the waitresses of the establishment could not avoid certain edginess on having seen to enter the couple. " What I do, how I serve them? ", she was asking.
After the luncheon, the procession returned again to " The Arquera ", name of the familiar house, for Ribadesella's former highway to Llanes. There they were until seven o'clock in the afternoon, hour in which don Philip and dona Letizia decided to go out to give a walk. It was inspected that maybe they would go up to Ribadesella, villa that waits to that the Princess decides to inaugurate the walk that takes her name, but they were seen in the viewing-point betweenTorimbia - one of the most beautiful beaches of Asturias - and Niembro, in Llanes.
The rumors were pointing at the possibility of that probably would have dinner in someone of Niembro's restaurants, but, once again, they confused their followers. Apparently, they returned to Sardéu. The stews of the grandmother do not have much that to envy to those of other more famous restorers. The octopus is a plate that is never absent in the familiar table when don Felipe and dona Letizia come.

Where have you heard it? According to what it is said here the baby is approximately for the third week in November. November 2 is the birthday of the Queen, probably because of it to someone it happened to say it. But here the serious press, and journalists like the Alcazar (that she knew also well in that week the Infanta Cristina was giving to light) calculate the dates that I say to you. Also when the pregnancy promised to be, the declarations of the relatives indicate that it will be for these dates.

I also heard it on TV and you're right, the man who said that is a German royal expert and he just brought the date in connection with the Queen's birthday.
At least this was from where I heard of it.
IMO he often tells unserious things and such statements appear also very often in the press and TV here.

Imagine it when I read it of November 2. If it does not go forward the baby will be born later, this it is the information that the Spanish press handles. And set to search more dates, it is more probable that the baby is born concerning the 22nd when are celebrated Anniversary of the ascent to the throne of the King.;)

Very nice views indeed. El Comercio says that, while the Princes were contemplating the wild beauty of the beaches of Torimbia and Niembro, some tourists were taking photos of the royal couple...

IN SARDEÚ

The Princes spend days in Asturias again


Don Felipe and Doña Letizia are resting days in the native Earth of the future Queen of Spain. But, until they have given a stroll, little it has been possible to see to them.

24 of August of 2005. As he comes being habitual since one occurred to know the engagement Don Felipe with the journalist, the Princes have gone to spend days in the native Earth of Doña Letizia .

The marriage, that is taking with much tranquillity its summer - something normal considering the advanced state of gestation of the Princess -, has returned to leave Majorca and has traveled until Sardeú in Asturias.

The marriage has spent few days in the Balearic island for displeasure of its inhabitants and the political positions that saw how it believed the tourism thanks to the presence of the Royal Family in Majorca.

Nevertheless, the Princess has been always very hogareña and very near her family, whom she visits how much she can.

Princes de Asturias arrived at the locality of Sardéu, very near Ribadesella and they were let see very little. To catch an image of the pair has been almost impossible for the numerous photographers who were on duty there.

And it is that although had arrived at Asturias the past Saturday, after attending the funeral of Be in favor of the 17 the military passed away in Afghanistan, had not left the house.

Nevertheless, the future Kings of Spain gave a short and calm stroll by near the residence of the paternal grandmother of Doña Letizia , Menchu journalist Alvarez of the Valley , in whose house they are remaining.

Ever since the commitment announced, the Princes have traveled in numerous occasions to the Asturian locality, that has become one of the obligatory shutdowns of the tourists.

Don Felipe, dona Letizia and her grandmother have dinner in Ribadesella in the middle of the civil expectation

Sardéu (Ribadesella), Beatriz F. MORÍN/
Pedro ZUAZUA

House and stews of the grandmother. That one was the scene of good part of the yesterday day of the Princes of Asturias, the third one who happen in the natal land of dona Letizia. When it seemed that already they would not leave " The Arquera ", name of the familiar residence, don Felipe, dona Letizia and the paternal grandmother of this one, Menchu Álvarez del Valley, they went out on nine o'clock in the night.
Little before half after nine, the car of the Princes was parking opposite to the door of the restaurant Ribadesella's La Parrilla. For surprise of the citizens - in this moment, the journalists still had not obtained localizarles-, the Princess stooped the car and crossed traversing the street whereas her husband, don Felipe, was doing the brief distance to normal step. Both were dressing of sport. She with blue long jacket, cowherds and a scarf to the neck; he, with white jacket and shirt of pictures. The retainers were six and the conversation, encouraged. The restaurant was full and the owners decided to close the bar to the public. Out, in the street, the public was congregating. Young, major, entire families, the majority with cameras of photos, waiting for the exit of the Princes. The people showed to the balconies. On having left the restaurant, don Felipe and dona Letizia pressed hard the hand of a group of people who, before, had been invited by the safety to remain in an end of the door of the establishment. Seconds later they tackled the return to house. The couple passed the whole day in Sardéu. Of doors for out, the place in which is nailed " The Arquera " is the " natural paradise " that sells Asturias. The cows and her bells are the music of fund. The most beautiful postcard that gets damaged when the Princes look after the curtains and security guards, journalists and tourists see, besides the bucolic landscape. In spite of that the Sun seemed radiant during the whole day, don Felipe and dona Letizia chose for the domestic plan. Calmness and tranquility. The only one that left the house nearly time was the paternal grandmother of the Princess, Menchu Álvarez del Valley. To the steering wheel of her car and without any type of safety, to the midday she decided to go to the buy. She went down to Ribadesella's market and bought a bit of everything, especially vegetables. Half an hour later was tackling the return to house. There were no any more effects facing the public. The stews of the grandmother, very famous, were the plates of the food.
The Princes eat of everything, as it has been underlined always, and in Sardéu they do not push anything back. Probably the pregnancyforces dona Letizia to take care of the food that she takes to prevent them from producing vomits or nauseas to her, but it does not happen with don Felipe, to whom they they all attribute a good one extract.
Fewer exits and up to the moment only two contacts, very brief, with the journalists. That one is the keynote of the second summer stay of the
couple in the natal land of dona Letizia.

Tranquility and good dinner

The Princes remained in Sardéu's house during the whole day, until at nine o'clock in the night they left her to have dinner in Ribadesella's gridiron

(...)
" Child or girl is all the same to me "
" It is all the same to me that she is a child or girl, the important thing is that it avenges well ", said the grandmother during her brief stay on market before the questions of the journalists who followed her steps. Little more she commented on the stay of her grandsons in house, except that it is been charmed with of having them together with her and that they are both nice. It yes, she could not reveal the mystery on how much time they will prolong their visit.
