The Kings are getting older, it's only reasonable that sometimes they let the Princes represent them at the visits of the highest levels. Felipe has been specialized in Latin American relations the last 10 years, he knows Mexican politics, economy and culture very well. A financial magazine interviewed him at the end of 2006 event mentioned that he knew a great deal of the Mexican stock market :smile:.
It seems the security has been tightened up for this visit after the Morelia bombing. So far Zarzuela hasn't even released the detail itinerary.

Felipe still has too large boots to fill and it's ridiculous to adorn himself with his father's plumes as long as he is not in charge. What's next, Letizia wearing the Fleur-de-Lys Tiara at the lunch of honour?


WOW another one that I wonder where in the world you come up with this. I am sure the King is in charge as always, and Felipe was doing as he was asked to do. Letizia is always lovely. I do not see her taking over with the Tiara at lunch anytime soon.:bang:

Letizia looks very good, I love her belt. She recycles the outfit of taking Leonor to school on the 15th September, with different shoes.

She looks lovely! :wub: And the outfit was casual but at the same time also professional and classy! And she doesn't try too much to achieve that!

thanks for the pictures of the closeups! i was going to say the bag looked very loewe to me. it is! confirmed by this closeup picture.

i think she wore it before while a holiday in asturias. i think she looked perfect during the arrival ceremony: classy, simple and sophisticated but not overdone. it looked very natural overall.
