DoM, you got all that just from a couple of photos?:whistling::lol:

Melibea 05-07-2010 05:38 AM

Well if you read what the press has been saying in Spain, DoM nailed it, imo. The photos has been the laughing stock since El Mundo published an article about the heavy photoshop of the photos. And if the the photographer has needed to say that P. Felipe's photos were not one photoshopped but many with the different uniforms it's because they have been polemic.

And the interpretation of the photos, if anyone compare the photos of the monarchs with this ones, really the diference is abismal. So this means that the Asturias want to communicate something no? The lack of royal symbols imo is a great mistake on their part, the photos remind me of an advertisment for a television news bulletin.

Well, any pictures - photoshopped or not are bound to create some buzz. Even if the photos are not photoshopped, do you think no one will criticize it? All RF's have their own idea on how they want their people to perceive them - be it CEO-like or royally royals. Maybe the SRF wants that people see them as hardworking royals, thus the CEO portrait. Others I have seen show some carefree royals, which illustrate their love for whatever that maybe.

they should also keep in mind that these two are the couple in waiting. loud paintings of them in full gala wear should not be attempted or at least not be attempted often. to look like executives goes hand in hand with the image they have tried to cultivate for the past 5-6 years so at least they are consistent. the photos themselves are no more photoshopped than any other photo that is voluntarily released for public consumption by any other royal house. to attempt a thorough personality analysis including their private life is just a tad desperate IMO but perhaps i dont read spanish newspapers so i may not know;)

The Prince and the Princess will walk this week a part of the "Camino de Santiago" and they will visit the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Following a tradition of the Royal family, in the Holy Year one of its members walk a part of the way with the Royal Guard, in 2004 was the Queen.

Dany Virgili says about the photos that the princes are supernatural, with a confidence in themselves, likeable and mature. Letizia had clear ideas, she made an impression to him. She is one of the most direct people Virgili has ever met. Felipe is very used to be photographed and poses the same way. All three images have the same brightness in the eyes because the light source is located in the same place, the angle is more or less the same. But there is a change in the the eyebrows, chin ... Virgili says that Letizia looks relaxed, safe, very natural, strong and mature as a princess. She looks spectacular. Her photo left Virgili most satisfied.
«Doña Letizia es transparente y eso ayuda al retratista».

The Prince and the Princess of Asturias will walk today a part of the "Camino de Santiago" of approximately 15 kilometres. When they arrive to the Santiago Cathedral they will realize the rites of the pilgrims and will be present at the mass of the pilgrims.

Just a couple of notes, the journalist are talking in Galego, a Ibero-Romance language spoken in Galicia. Is the co-official language alonce with Spanish in Galicia. Lovely to hear.

Felipe and Letizia will walk the last 15 km of Camino de Santiago (St. James Route) for its french route. They will depart from San Paio church in Sabugeira, to Santiago Cathedral, where the Santiago relics are burried. According the tradition once they arrive at Obradoiro square (at 13:30h) they will cross the Cathedral's Holy Door, and then they will embrace the Santiago's statue.

Here is a Map where you can see the diferents european routes to Santiago de Compostela.

2010 is a Jacobean year or Holy year, this is when 25th July, Santiago's Day, is on Sunday,

I think that Felipe is quite tired after returning late at the night from Hamburg ...

Paty 05-13-2010 05:30 AM

You can note that Felipe is using a walking stick with a Shell, which is the simbol of Camino de Santiago.
