Felipe made a very wise decision about his wife and they are happy and practically all Spaniards, too.

I always tell them not to pay attention to comments written in Spanish, because they are not always in Spanish. In fact, 95 percent of the negative comments on the networks that I see are always Spanish-speaking foreigners.
The press in Spain is terrible. I think they think that if they speak badly, give or make up scandals, they sell more. Journalistic ethics have long since ceased to exist. Surely that is what hurts the queen the most, a person with a great professional career before belonging to royalty.

But critizism is nothing new, foreign or not foreign, older or younger generation, royal or not royal. It comes with the job. Therefore the royals work together, I am sure Letizia is well accepted among them even though in public she comes across as stiff when mingling with royals, that part of the job is not like fish to water for her.
Perhaps she is rigid with her husband's family because they deserve it, but I have never seen her tense with other members of the royalty.
Anyway, Queen Letizia understands life with less luxury than most of the other members of the royalty and perhaps, she can move away that attitude, since the queen is educating her daughters in humility and simplicity. She can't stand big luxuries, but she has always adhered to protocol and has never had a fault.
