I'm glad that with Letizia, Prince Felipe is abble to be near to the people and this kind of institutions. Before his wedding all his acts were kind of military and State ones, so I believe they are together, as a couple, honouring the compromisse assumed on their wedding day - as he said they would.

Of course Princess Letizia could have been there by herself, to be honest any of us could, what science there is to be, talk, hear and understand people who work in a such heartwarming way?!

But as lis say I believe it is important that, if their agendas allow, they can go together and live these experiences as a couple and Heirs to the Throne.

I don't agree when you say that before it wasn't a priority for the Prince, I think that people are now requesting more and more the couple's presence to support and call attention to their work, assuming perhaps before that the Prince wasn't interested or had other compromises; now they start going to these events and in some time 24 hours a day won't be enough to answer all requests...

Beautiful picture, nayralorenzo, thank you for sharing .

I like very much this kind of acts, the princes are very happy with this children, Letizia looks adorable and enjoying the visit with many spontaneous acts. It´s clear that with Letizia is easier to do this acts,the prince is more confident with the children. It´s the best to see the princes doing their activities with the same happiness and clearly so in love.

Don Felipe and Doña Letizia, with the psychic discapacitados ones Princes de Asturias inaugurated yesterday in Vicálvaro (Madrid) the occupational center and of use of the Foundation Juan XXIII, in which 400 people work, of that 90% are discapacitadas. Don Felipe and Doña Letizia fulfilled the protocol to discover a plate and to sign in the honor roll. A student hit the hands the Prince while another one remembered to Doña Letizia its televising stage.

The most spontaneous visit of Princes de Asturias

The espontaneidad could yesterday on the cold protocol that sometimes accompanies the official acts by Its Heights Reales Princes de Asturias. In this occasion, the hosts of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia were the psychic discapacitados ones that work and receive formation in the Foundation Juan XXIII and that inaugurated their new seat yesterday: a building of 10,000 square meters located in Vicálvaro from which they offer his ability to work to the companies.

Thus, while they labeled packages, others introduced mail in you exceed, prepared promotional products or they stored them carefully, because these are some of the works that the psychic discapacitados ones make in this center.

But all these tasks were interrupted in each room when Princes de Asturias entered her, and the discapacitados ones received with their spontaneous commentaries and occurrences to them. Although to some the emotion of the moment them left blocked, as a a young person who gave to Doña Letizia a branch of paper flowers - done by same her and was stayed without being able to say word.

In one of the classrooms, Don Felipe was received with "hits the five", and in another one, the Princess was identified like "the one of the television newscast" by one of the discapacitados ones, Jose Luis, to whom she would enchant to be able to continue seeing to him Doña Letizia in the news at night, who does not lose any, and that yesterday, after being filmed by the TVE cameras, did not think that she could end up appearing in the television.

During close of two hours, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia - who tomorrow will turn 34 years were talking with the workers del center, narrowing hands and giving kisses, but also were made photos, dedicated an album with the images of the Real Wedding that took and received gifts and drawings to them done by the own students

"When the works finish"

Some by which they also accompanied to the Princes in his route by the center quickly were identified by the discapacitados ones, like the mayor of Madrid, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardo'n, who commented surprised that until had asked a young person there to him which when the works of a next bridge would finish.

"Man, Apple tree"

To the inauguration also attended the previous mayor of Madrid and present president of IFEMA, Jose Maria Alvarez of the Apple tree, since he was in his stage of regidor when the lands were yielded on which the new occupational center has been constructed. "Man, Apple tree", aloud affirmed one of the young people whom the ex- mayor identified, to whom also they gave a key ring of the Betis, football team of which the politician is fan.

Also, they accompanied to the Princes the Secretary of State by Social Services, Valcárce Shelter; the Social advisor of Family and Subjects, Beatriz Elorriaga; the viceadvisor of Use and Woman, Carmen Sands, and the councilman of Social welfare, Ana Bottle. After the visit, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia they shared a appetizer with the workers of the center.

The building that inaugurated the Princes yesterday constitutes the greater center of work for people with psychic discapacidad of the Community of Madrid and employs to 400 people, the 90 percent of discapacitadas them.

In the last months it happens slightly curiously, it is true that the Princess always is accompanied of the Prince, and that is he who is in the habit of doing the speeches ... but also it is true that exempting the rapid trips to latinamerica, some hearing and some military act ... the Prince already does not do almost acts in solitarily, in the majority he is accompanied of his wife.

Also it is true that in the agenda of the Prince have got more acts of social character, with children, sick and disabled. This week they have had three acts, and three very different acts ... the sports, one social and today the economic one ... increasingly they try to include diferent things.

I agree with the ABC article it's about the most spontaneous visit of the Princes. I love all the pictures , thanks for posting them. This picture looks cute and they had the similar expression.

Felipe could have stayed home, let Letizia go by herself. But he enjoyed the event just as much and everyone else was happy to have him too. A good break for him (them) from the usual serious events with grey men in dark suits.
