The journalist Mari Ángeles Alcazar commented in television, that she had asked and it seems that in this trip the girl will not accompany them. I imagine that how they go one day and they return to the following one they would consider that it was better for the girl to be in her house and not travelling several hours in plane and in a hotel. There be that wait to Thursday, but it seems that Leonor will remain in Madrid with her babysitter and I imagine that with her grandparents. ;)

Curious the way all of them chose to wear black...

Is there a particular reason, or is it mere coincidence?

Emily 02-09-2006 03:26 PM

Once again, I think Letizia looks great! Does anyone know what language these two couples communicate in?
