Nice photo: lovely, but yet institutional... a truly king and queen-to-be portrait!
Pity that Letizia is using the same suit as her individual photo, but they are quite a handsome couple!
Thanks for being on top of the news, Anna!
Well, for our non-Spanish readers I tried a translation to my best knowledge of Spanish of the paragraphs that accompany those pictures. They are in the same order as the website.
Thank you lapopdiva, for posting those. They're cute and funny!
Corrections are welcomed and appreciated
ADVICE BEFORE THE SPEECH
"Be careful with what you'll say...". For what we've seen the princely marriage is a little bit like the ordinary ones and not each and everyone are complicity whispering. At least in this image, it seems that the Prince is also scolded by his wife as her index finger is up.
IT'S ALL ABOUT PROTOCOL
We have to admit that they've learned their lesson well. Here we have them with the hand in the ecclesiastical pose, together and in front of their bodies. They seem more like a soccer team before a penalty than devouts in Santiago church.
LESSONS IN THE FMI
Economy can be very much fun, even more if explained very well. And, besides, if the teaches embraces the student by the waist... better and better. In the end, what more of the conversation (and the economy) if the company is good?
"YES, IT'S VERY SIMPLE"
It's the duty of every daughter in law to help her mother in law with the new technologies, which aren't easy. Or better, they're sending a message to the Prince's cell phone to warn him that they'll be late and that he shouldn't worry about waiting them for dinner.
NOT TO NOTICE
Here we have TRH at a gala dinner in N.Y. hosted at the Metropolitan. This mischievous smile and half covered gives us something to think about. Are they criticizing the outfit of one of the guests?
A nostalgic moment. If the Olympic Games are emotional to anyone, even more to the Prince. This can explain the loving hand of Letizia in her husband's back. Do you remember, baby, when it was you that paraded at the opening of the Barcelona Olympic Games? You were so handsome carrying the flag...
Be careful my darling as you're brushing my behind... and soon, you know, the journalists will criticize us. Shut up woman, just dissimulate and they'll think we're doing something else.
NOW THAT NOBODY IS LOOKING...
The whispers aren't exclusive of the couple. The in-laws also take part in them. What do they say? We don't know, but the King lets out a smile with the witty comment of his daughter in law. It's so normal...
ARE WE GORGEOUS?
To go to a wedding just a few months after your own it's always alluring. It's possible that it's just a coincidence, but here we have TRH combining their attires. Felipe's tie matches the color of Letizia's skirt that, obviously, matches with her fan.
GIANT PHOTO ALBUM
To be in sync it's vital to know the past of your soulmate. Because of that, it's common to see the couples seated with a photo album on their knees. But Felipe does it big. So, he took his wife to an exhibition of pictures of the Royal Faily's vacations in Palma de Mallorca. That's what you got with a prince.

MADRID, SPAIN: Spain's Prince Felipe and his wife Letizia Ortiz vote in the referendum on the EU Constitution in the public college of Monte del Pardo 20 February 2005 in El Prado, near Madrid. Amid fears of an embarrassingly low turnout Spaniards began voting Sunday in a referendum on the proposed EU constitution which most of the 35-million electorate profess to back. Spain is the first of 10 EU member states holding a popular vote on the text which is designed to streamline decision-making in the 25-member bloc which last year took in 10 new, mainly Eastern European, members.

Los Príncipes de Asturias votaron a las 13:10 en el colegio de El Pardo
Los Príncipes de Asturias votaron a las 13:10 en el referéndum sobre la Constitución Europea en el mismo colegio electoral, el colegio público Monte de El Pardo, en el que a primera hora de esta mañana lo hicieron los Reyes y la Infanta Elena.
Los Príncipes, que iban vestidos informalmente, llegaron al colegio electoral en un coche que conducía el propio Don Felipe, quien llevaba la mano derecha vendada debido, según contó a los periodistas, a un golpe.
El primero en votar fue el Príncipe de Asturias después de que la presidenta de la mesa electoral dijera en voz alta su nombre, Felipe de Borbón y Grecia, y se comprobara el número 88 con el que figura inscrito en el censo electoral de esta mesa.
Posteriormente, doña Letizia, que figura inscrita en el censo con el número 486, ejerció su derecho al voto.
En ese momento no había más electores en el aula donde votaron que sí estaba abarrotada de periodistas, lo que llevó a Don Felipe nada más entrar a comentar: "vaya expectación".
A esa hora había votado el 20 por ciento del censo electoral de la mesa, 145 de los 715 electores inscritos.
Los Príncipes saludaron a la presidenta, los vocales e interventores de los distintos partidos políticos antes y después de votar y al acabar de ejercer su derecho al sufragio Don Felipe preguntó a los miembros de la mesa: "*cómo va el día? *Bien, tranquilo?".
Tanto a su llegada al colegio electoral como a la salida, numerosos vecinos de El Pardo aplaudieron la presencia de los Príncipes de Asturias que respondieron a las muestras de cariño estrechando manos y saludando.
Este es el primer referéndum en el que Don Felipe ejerce directamente su derecho al voto, ya que en el anterior, convocado para ratificar la permanencia de España en la OTAN, votó por correo.
Aunque no hay ninguna norma que lo impida, la Familia Real no ejerce su derecho al sufragio en comicios legislativos, municipales o autonómicos para dar muestra de imparcialidad, al entender que la Institución está por encima de cualquier opción política.
Está previsto que esta tarde los Duques de Palma acudan a votar en Barcelona, ciudad donde reside la Infanta Cristina. http://www.abc.es/abc/pg050220/actua...nstitucion.asp
Spanish Royals don't usually vote--believing the Crown should be above politics--so this is only the second time the Prince has voted (last time was for Spain to join NATO). Here are a few images from Reuters via Yahoo.com:
