Maybe Felipe wants her hair to be long? I agree, she looked better with shorter hairdo, but now, with that length, she is able to have a larger variety of other, more sophisticated hairdos to choose from.

As for the clothes, that seems to be a Letizia's strategy: recycle, recycle, recycle... and then... a big WOW! This white and red dress with floral pattern is splendid!

Even though there aren't much photos it seems to be an interesting trip to China. I like how they represent Spain with such trips in a serious way. Thanks for all information and pics so far! The Princes both look great. But then in Mallorca they have deserved their vacations after working very hard and without their baby.

Hye, Lula, very glad to see you back.Immediatly thanks for your good words about the Princes's trip.

That is for me very difficult to understand is this obligation to compare the work of the different Crown Princes in Europe. First, generally speaking all we know that comparaison it not reason. Then, as we can see all threads long this kind of comparaison is ever doing against the Princes to condemn their own know how whithout to think they aren't whose decided of the organisation of this trip.

May be, I say may be with a lot of caution, it will be more revelant to notice as the Princes have to work because their agenda is fixed like that, they don't have many opportunities to enjoy themself, except to take advantge of the very few moments that they could have ( if they have one)

Remenber when they where in Japan they stayed so few days whithout to make tourism too.

I find the explanations of Lula on this subject very topic even if there are noy full of fun.

For those who were expecting some new dresses for the Princess, I hope they can appreciated the redflowers one.....

Just a word upon the Letizia's hair, I'm very found of the new and many hairdoes that the Princess can do with her long hair. May be she looks less fashion but she can have a more refinde and distinghished hairdoes ..... in my opinion !

So true! and it's a great strategy because it satisfies both the critics of palace spending and those who want to see her in new fashions.

Majorca? Vacations?

Often I think that for them, it cannot be vacations.
It is true, they do not have official acts, but Majorca in summer is full of photographers, and it is difficult that they could do a normal and calm life. In Majorca already they were accustomed to having the Royal Family, and only interesting to do some graceful photo to the grandsons of the Kings. But from the wedding of the Prince, the innovation did that the press was becoming a bit mad ... last year the pregnancy, and this year Leonor. They have created many expectation, and unfortunately it does that often they lose the respect and the measurement. I believe that this year with the little Infanta they are not going to have it easy, because the photographers and the people are going to want to see the girl.

Though they will criticize them, since always, for going away some days out of Spain, I believe that it is something that they have to do, and that they will do. They need to move away a bit from Spain, and to go to a site where they have real vacations

Princes of Asturias undertake trip from return to Spain

Princes of Asturias undertook to 16.30 hours GMT of today the return trip towards Madrid, in a Airbus 310 of the Spanish Air Force, after ending their official visit to China.
Don Felipe and Doña Letizia have remained three days in Shanghai and Beijing, accompanied by the minister of Outer Subjects, Miguel Angel Moratinos, and of the Secretary of State of Tourism and Commerce, Pedro Mejía, among others, with the objective to increase the political, economic and cultural relations both between countries. As much Spanish diplomatic sources as Chinese considered that the stay of the Princes has been a great success, when the “Year of Spain in China” is prepared for 2007, to obtain that more is known and better the Spanish present reality in the Asian country.
The vice-president of China, Zeng Qinghong, and prime minister, Wen Jiabao, assured this to Prince de Asturias who will take measures to both reduce the deficit of the trade balance between countries, with more behind schedule than 9,000 million euros in negative numbers for Spain

I would like to see those sandals more clearly… it´s seems pretty.
Really??? I think this dress is not good at all, the flower are to big and not favored the princess figure at all, well thank God we do not have to agree with everyone, right?

Say the truth - how many women can use a dress like this without looking 4 month pregnant?!

I love this dress (and I not even like dresses) the pattern, the way it suits arrounds her neck, the fabric and the way it looks on the Princess.

And I agree with you, she must change or the cut or the do, maybe making some curls on it so it doesn't look so uninteresting while down... But she can do so many wonderful hair-dos with it long this way... So I think if she just made something different - put some curls on it - she could keep it this way long.

Welcome lula:)... tell us the truth you went to China with them, didn't you?!

Thank you all for sharing the pictures and news.

mtbcm :)

I don't see anything wrong when a princess recycles clothes, all royals do that, even Rania who is the epitome of the elegance recycles her well known designers clothes, but some of you will agree with me that given Letizia's big closet (we have seen dozens and dozens of differents outfits on those two years so is not a matter of being cheap) she could do better, ie she shouldn't wore that red and white square blaze and those white pants who are about to go out by themself again, because we just saw them in the trip on Madrid and the jacket dosn't have a forgivable pattern, and those pants are, how many times? the six or more that she used them in a matter of a month- month and some.

The outfit to the Cervantes inauguration is kind of neutral but she just wore it just a few days ago, IMO she could use clothes that she have that haven't get out of fashion yet (she used to have cute clothes when she was Felipe's fiance and at the begining of the marriage) and she can use it and mix and match, we don't have the money she have and we all know how to take advantage of our three or four really good pieces the mauve dress as beautiful as it can be is not a forgivable dress, she just wore it the other day, I don't care if the chiness people have seen this clothes or not, I have seen it, half humanity have seen it, they have a good presupuest to spend on clothes but even if they don't Letizia have a huge closet by now, only Letizia's shoes and purses worth thousand of dollars so she can do better and not repeat that often, that's my point, she can recycle but not the same clothe withing a month or less and to top it all as a uniform, she use to do that a lot, same skirt w/ same blazer w/same shoes w/ same purse w/same "letishirt", a lot of times she wores it exactly as the last time she used it, another thing would be if those clothes don't fit her anymore but nobody knows that, so honestly she can do better.

Letizia is travelling on business. She is leaving the fashion plate work to other princesses. Letizia looks great and represents the royal family and Spain in a dignified and very classy fashion.

Every Princess travels representing their countries, none of them are less than Letizia, other's even travels for business much more as they have their own agendas, she's not better not worse than the other ones who still managed to do their "business trips" on a more fashionable or royalty way and I don't see them as a fashion models as for Letizia leaving to them the "fashion plate" as you said, others dress in a more distinguish manner (and yes, more fashionable) take Mathilde or Maxima when on meetings or delegations abroad (not talking here about Opera or Theather or Gala Dinners since Maxima is a little bit "too much" in that chapter), but when in business trips they go decents, impeccables, fashionables still not boring with a good cut clothes and good fabrics, accesories etc; and without stopping being princess and represent very decently their countries, she's above all the Princes of Asturias, the royalty is also about glamour and fashion as silly as may sound, the fact that someone dress poorly doesn't means they job is better or viceversa; so I'll rather will take the time to mix and match some of my best clothes because I'm going to a country for the first time as a Princess, representing Spain and the Royal Family; she's not the only princess doing her job here, other's have meetings even w/ the UN by themselves, and they managed to go in a "more royal" way; Letizia is not a corporate executive not a politician (and even they dress better) but the Princess of Asturias. Just my opinion.

BTW. For example, I can picture her leaving the plane at the arrival with a suit like the one she wore on the engagement day (the Armani one), and I don't mean it has to be an Armani but the same kind of cut and fabric, withouth a shirt inside, in a pastel color (peach, blue, even red), with a nice pin with matching earrings, a nice hairdo (to avoid the wind and the hair on her face) and a pair of closed pumps and a matching purse, she has beautiful matching sets on that department, not with the kind of sandals/espadrilles she used that day, nothing fancy, nothing to break the bank about, but with much more class and definitely much more elegant, in case someone may think I want her to dress on expensive designers only. That's only one example as she can be really well dress, in a kind of "executive" way but still as a Princess.
