I love that outfit,i don´t know the jacket but the skirt is Hugo Boss.:wub:

Thanks Lula!for the pics:flowers:!
I like Letizia's outfit! She looks nice!
I can't see her bag...

nouwrein 10-15-2007 10:36 AM

I like what Letizia is wearing today, she always looks beautiful in red :wub: It's a recycled outfit but I haven't seen many photos before, hope we'll have more photos this time. It seems that Fall/Winter seasons are "thick black stockings" seasons for Letizia, just like last year ;) Oh is that the golden christmasy necklace she's wearing again? As I've said before, I don't like that necklace, not worth the price at all, but I guess it looks so much better now with this red/black outfit than the last couple of times she wore it. I have to see what bag/purse she brought along to complete the sophisticated look she has now.

A short video by RTP:
YouTube - Felipe & Letizia in Portugal - Portuguese TV



Letizia is wearing the same Hugo Boss skirt she used last year at the receptionof the Prince of Asturias Awards. This is the 3rd time that the town hall of Beja gives the Keys of the City to someone: in 1843 they were given to Queen D.ª Maria II, and in 1987 to the President of the Republic Mário Soares.

Los Príncipes de Asturias reciben las llaves de la ciudad portuguesa de Beja

Don Felipe thanked the honour given to him by the mayor of this little town and assured, in Portuguese, that he will keep the keys as a memory of this special day. He also expressed his wish to come back, to pay the brotherly retribution from the Spaniards. In addition, he has praised the beauty of the 17th century Church of Nossa Senhora dos Prazeres.


Beja/PrÃ*ncipes: Portugueses e espanhóis aplaudem PrÃ*ncipes das Astúrias que agradecem com "obrigado" - Lusa - SAPO Notícias
Hundreds of people applauded today the Prince and Princess of Asturias, as they arrived in Beja, and Felipe de Borbón thanked them with an "Obrigado!".
Today, after the delivery of the award, the Princes of Asturias and the President of the Republic shall inaugurate, at 5:00 PM, a Memorial of Alqueva and pay homage to all the men that have worked in the greatest barrage in Europe.

Letizia is wearing the black and red Hugo Boss skirt she used last year at the Prince of Asturias reception. They already received the keys of the city and are now having lunch with the presidential couple.
This is the 3rd time that the town hall of Beja gives the Keys of the City to someone: in 1843 they were given to Queen D.ª Maria II, and in 1987 to the President of the Republic Mário Soares.

Wow! That's quite an honour for them.

I prefer a dress rather tha the skirt with that red coat.
Beja is a very lovely country has all our Alentejo is! Is quite warm now here in Portugal so those black socks were not the best choice to me!!

Duke of Marmalade 10-15-2007 11:08 AM

Many thanks for the pics lula
I recall Letizia has worn this outfit twice already, once at the PoAA and once again shortly afterwards. Being always on top of her looks at the PoAA I already loved it back then and I also find it perfect for today's occasion. Everything matches well, handbag, stockings etc. Must be a great day for them, they have a close connection to Portugal and what a reception :smile:

ÚLTIMA HORA - PÚBLICO.PT

The Prince of Asturias, Felipe de Borbón, stressed today the secular cultural interchanges between Portugal and Spain, during a visit to Beja, where he received the Keys of the Town. The municipal distinction was given to the Princes, after a visit to the Church of Our Lady of the Pleasures, considered one of the most beautiful baroque temples in the South of Portugal.

During the cerimony in the Town Hall, the mayor offered the Keys of the Town to Felipe and Letizia de Borbón, who are the first foreign personalities to receive that municipal reward. After a private lunch in the Convent of São Francisco, the President of the Republic, Cavaco Silva, Felipe de Borbón and Letizia Ortiz are heading to the Alqueva, where they shall preside over to the award-giving cerimony of the international Prize "Puente de Alcántara", which was given this year to this hydroelectric-enterprise. The Prize rewards the best Spanish, Portuguese or Latin American public enterprise and this year Alqueva was chosen by the jury presided by Infante D. Carlos de Borbón, for being "harmonically integrated in the landscape".

After the delivery of the Prize, the President of the Republic and the Princes of the Asturias will inaugurate, at 5:00PM, a Memorial of Alqueva and pay homage to all the workers involved in the construction of the greatest European barage.

biboquinhas 10-15-2007 11:31 AM

Portuguese people are very attached to what is called in Spanish "Revistas del Corazon", Gossip Magazines (Hola! Caras, VIP, Nova Gente, Flash! Lecturas...) almoust everyone buys them so it is quite normal for Portuguese people to receive Royals like this! They like them and they follow their lifes has their own lifes!They are quite celebrities here!

Not every royals, may I add, if you don't mind. If it was the Danish or Sweedish Princes, nobody would pay much attention.

They are received like this, because the Spanish royal family has such a close relationship with Portugal: King Juan Carlos passed his youth here and he is fluent in Portuguese... plus they are our neighbours, with very deep historical bounds uniting both countries, so they're seen like the royal family we don't have anymore.

I think you need to check the dates of both women wearing this pattern and find out who was copying who by your logic ;). Letizia had this skirt first (before Mary with her dress) at last year's one of PoA Awards' events.

If it was only the Queen and the King I think they didn't have this reception, because is Letizia and Filipe, the young Royal couple so mucht see lately in our Gossip Magazine, the reception was like this!

You are wrong Bioquinhas:rolleyes:, Princess Letizia first used this skirt before Mary (I checked this). Perhaps Mary copied to Letizia,In any case I doubt that they copied each other because they have own styles.

biboquinhas 10-15-2007 12:19 PM

Well I supose one day in not enough to say that both Letizia or Mary are copying themselves! Prince of Asturias Awards was at 26 October and 50th anniversary of liberation of Hungary was 27 October 2007!!!!!!!! Maybe Hugo Buss made a very good publicity amoung royals that time!

dazzling 10-15-2007 12:26 PM

I must say, the prince & princess have alot to do in one day. This is a nice short visit, might be busy agends but its nice to see them on the balcony, pictures show beautiful architectural work.

Beautiful pictures ladies, thanks...

I also think that the below information of the Couple visiting the workers is also a very nice thing of them to do:cool:

Last year's PoA Awards was Oct 20th (you got the wrong date again). By the way, you were starting the copying talk here. When Mary wore her dress, nobody had said she was copying Letizia.

Elsa M. 10-15-2007 02:00 PM

They're lodged in the same 13th century Franciscan convent where they had lunch today (Convento de São Francisco). It is now converted into an historical hostel (pousada). The press is saying their "suite" costs 250€ per night and has a series of small luxuries that they won't have time to enjoy ;)

Of course I know either Letizia or Mary are copying themselves, they have their own style and we know about that!But they use the same pattern skirt or dress from Hugo Boss almoust the same time and as far has I know Mary uses a lot of Hugo Boss clothes but not letizia!

Well, I don't know about the difficulty Spaniards may have with understanding Portuguese, but for us it's pretty easy... I believe it also contributes the fact that the Portuguese phonologic system is broader than the Spanish (that's why we are able to speak other languages with less accent than most Spaniards)... but that's just my personal perception) ;)

and what if she only has one hugo boss piece of clothing? :rolleyes: she may like just THAT one and now just go to hugo boss because of the fact it is hugo boss, which i find admiring. lots of important personalities get carried away but brands, and i love the fact letizia isn't and sticks to what she likes rather than to that which is from a brand. besides, she seems quite keen to stick to spanish designers and to her very personal miguel palacio and felipe varela.

i'm sure neither letizia or mary copied one or the other. if they had known someone else used that skirt, they wouldn't have wore it: they must be sick and tired of comparison.

Totally right, what a strang way of thaught to think when two young beautifull woman have a quiet level of "celebrity" - quoted by me- they have to be rival and to succeed have to copy the one upon the other. Something is telling me that it's not the Letizia's trubble, and even if I don't know Mary very well, I think it's the same thing for her, isen't it? :flowers:

Right, go back to the topic.

Except the Polfoto pics which are good quality, the other numerus, yes and original too, aren't very clear. It's too bad because it seems that this day wsa absolutly exceptional. The princes of Asturias have been feted exactly as if they were true heroes.

The people's jubilation looks tactible and some women are succeed to touch part of tthe face or the body of the Princess! is quiet incredible.

Today, both were absolutly happy of the nature of their trip. I don't very well the si=ymbolic of the fact to give the keys of the town to an important personnage. I think it's a Middle Age recollection, but it's look today as a great sign of confidence and honor.

Roxsteve 10-15-2007 08:50 PM

Ok. Regardless, it looks very old fashioned on both Mary and Letizia.

I simply can't believe how terrible the photographers from EFE are. It looked like they had dirty lens all the time. I can take better pictures with my dummy camera.

Here's a more "pinkish" article:

DN Online: Capital comunista rendida ao 'charme' da realeza espanhola

When Cavaco and the Princes of Asturias arrived in Beja, for one day, the city dived in a fairy-tale story and the multitude of feminine faces could experience a live show that is usually only accessible through the yellow press. The town of Beja, which was founded some centuries before the Christian age, is necessarily accustomed to these visits. With the security of those who have seen the Romans and Arabs pass and lived the wars of the Christian reconquest, the population enjoyed the Spanish Princes with a mixture of proximity and admiration.

Wearing a flowered skirt and a red coat, D.ª Letizia had all the eyes on her, when the retenue walked a few meters between the church and the Town Hall. And when the Princes and the Cavacos arrived at the Hall, for the traditional greeting on the balcony, it was the highest moment for the many people that waited a whole morning.

I believe so, Drottning! Letizia has many fans in Portugal, (almost) everyone follow her steps and when Leonor and Sofia were born, portuguese magazine were full of articles about it. :smile:
I saw the Princes on tv. I thought Letizia was too skinny, taller than I thought and her eyes are very sweet!

thanks for these pics!!

letizia looks fabulous and so happy with this trip in portugal!!! they received such a good welcome!!!!!

bbb 10-16-2007 11:38 AM

great photos thanks, it looks like a lovely warm welcome, it looks like they are enjoying visiting their neighbors and vice versa. i really like her outfit, but i'll never understand the use of fabric- putting a big flower on the "sit down" area is never flattering from behind.

In the morning, they visited the Church of Our Lady of Prazeres and the Diocesan Museum and afterwards they received the Keys of the City of Beja, in the Town Hall.
After a private lunch at the Convent of São Francisco, they took part in the Award-giving ceremony of the International Prize “Puente de Alcântara” and later presided at the inaugural ceremony of the Memorial Sculpture of the Hydroelectric Power Plant of the Multipurpose Alqueva Undertaking.
