OCTOBER 10

Princes of Asturias

Hearing to an International Delegation of the World Congress on Catholic Television
Lula posted in the Calendar of the Spanish Royals that the Prince and Princess will have a hearing on October 10 for this world congress. It seems that it will be the prince who'll be "tagging along" with the Honarary President ;) -- here's the link to the official notice sent by the House of the King re: the Princess' acceptance: https://www.congresomundialtv.com/_uk...denciah_uk.htm

I see that the fact that Felipe and Letizia have a lot of joint activities is getting mixed reactions from different people -- some like it, some don't. From my perspective, I like seeing them together because they embody the synergy that arises from team work. Also, I like seeing that they have common interests or they are as involved in their spouse's interests.

In this congress, for example, maybe Felipe is as interested to be involved in the work of the Catholic TV that is why he's joining his wife for the hearing. I feel that this is the same as when Letizia joins her husband in the hearings of the POA awards, even if the event only names him in attendance. :flowers:

Very good analysis, Kartheina. I agree with you, they are "Princes Asturias Team" of course :flowers: . Their job is fantastic for me.

The teamwork will pay off when the time comes for Felipe to take over from his father. Felipe and Letizia's approach to the crown prince/princess "job" is very professional, committed to Spain, and always done with dignity. All monarchies will come under increasing scrutiny and the countries where the crown prince/princess have worked on behalf of and made themselves as supporters of their respective countries' various issues will have an advantage over celebrity status seeking royalty. If the crownprincely team is viewed as a worthy, inspiring and dignified representative for their country they will be more likely to be welcomed as the new King and Queen.

"But the royals, he argues, define national identity by their very permanence -- far more than passing politicians." I just found this quote from Jeremy Paxman who is coming out with "On Royalty" about the British royal family. I believe Felipe and Letizia's focus have been national identity in their engagements but also in such areas as Letizia'a spanish designed wardrobe. Many have been critical of Letizia for her lack of "own" agenda but I see Felipe and Letizia as approaching their duties with lots of insight and smart planning. They have "National Identity".

I wholeheartedly agree.

I don't care very much about the purpose of this kind of event (it makes part of their duties too:glare:), but :blink: what a horrible matched outfit, a big NO from my part :online2lo !

Lauritas138 10-10-2006 08:48 AM

I loveeee this outfit and I like more with the pink t-shirt than with the violet one.
The pink color suit Letizia very much and the light colors as the beige jaket suit her too.

princess leonor 10-10-2006 09:06 AM

Letizia looks great:smile: I love the outfit. That first picture is so precious, it's like Felipe is asking her, if she's feeling alright. He looks so sweat and concerned :wub:

nayralorenzo 10-10-2006 09:08 AM

I don't understand very much why is she wearing now the jackets open. I don't think she is fat now because of the pregnancy. I don't like it.

May be we can think that the Princess don't have yet a new confortable wardrobe and that, for the moment, it's not very pleasant for her to wear a jacket too narrow:flowers:

I believe that only she has dressed this opened jacket. Letizia is a very thin girl, and her jackets always are in the habit of being tight, nearly that fattens the jackets already they do not button, especially in the zone of the breast. Now she is using the clothes that was going last winter, three and four months after the birth Leonor when she had not recovered totally the figure. The clothes of her first pregnancy cannot use it because it was a spring and summer clothes, so she will have to organize the cupboard and entrust new clothes. If she has to release clothes she will do it the national day or in the prizes, but not for a hearing in the Zarzuela.

She wore this outfit when they announced she was pregnant with a different top underneath, and to many other events, it's time to give it a rest already!! recycled a little to much.

The Princess wore this outfit three time : First in Palma in April, 2nd the day of the announce of the pregnancy and today. Yes, it's recycle but not too much, don't forget that Letizia has to change her shape for the next months and that for the begining of pregnancy it's difficult to make specific wardrobe:flowers:

sadie 10-10-2006 04:53 PM

Letizia looks wonderful but those shoes are hedious , they must be really comfortable :rolleyes:

Franco 10-10-2006 06:50 PM

I was delighted to hear a news item on Telediario yesterday but have not been able to find anything written to confirm this item.

Until now, CP Letizia's activities were achieved within the company of the Crown Prince. From now, she will have her own agenda, which began on Monday with the inauguration of a primary school. The school has been given the name Principes de Asturias, which is the first institution given that name since their marriage.

According to the report, CP Letizia has expressed a wish to specialise her portfolio on the themes of education and children.

Has anyone else heard this?

Anna_R 10-10-2006 06:54 PM

Yes, it's all posted in her own news thread, here:
