Spain&#39;s Queen Sofia greets a soldier as she walks from La Almudena Cathedral to the Royal Palace in the center of Madrid Wednesday May 19, 2004. The Queen is personally overseeing preparations for Saturday&#39;s royal wedding at the cathedral between Crown Prince Felipe and Letizia Ortiz.

Queen Sofia

If you want something done right....
So is it the Queen, or the Committee&#33; :) [/b][/quote]
I&#39;d bet a lot of money that it&#39;s the Queen&#33;&#33; She&#39;s probably heard all the things that people are saying about Letizia and figures that if she plans the wedding people can&#39;t complain and blame Letizia. Or she just likes to be very hands-on. Either way, I&#39;m sure it&#39;ll be great.

Could it be also that since she has shorter legs than Felipe, her stride are naturally shorter such that a step for him would take her 2 steps.
I know I&#39;m always trailing behind my love because I&#39;m smaller & he takes longer strides.

It was at the wedding of Crown Prince Frederick of Denmark and Mary Donaldson that I first took notice of Letizia up until then I had no idea Felipe was even engaged.
