Why they make a Ceremony Official Farewell at Barajas Airport? I don't know it seams so weird...and they stand a few minutes looking at what? the airplane?? And also do they travel in a normal plane or it was a private trip just for them? Thank you,

lula 11-14-2013 04:16 AM

The farewell is only done on state and important official trips, is an act with authorities and there is a military salute and the national anthem plays. They fly in an airplane of the Spanish Air Force, the Spanish army has several aircraft to transport authorities.

With them travels also Foreign Affairs Minister, U.S. Ambassador in Spain and other politicians and authorities.

It would be impossible to do this trip in 1 week in normal flight, because in the United States they are going to have several flights between cities and long distances. Even the Spanish press has asked to be allowed to fly on the plane in those internal displacement because it was very difficult to keep all the acts.

The mission in Carmel is truly lovely and the surrounding area has some of the best of California's natural beauty. The California Central Coast is spectacular and real change from the urban sprawl found in SoCal and the Bay Area IMVHO.
I'm glad to see that the Asturias have the chance to visit this historic site.

He said he shook hands with both of them and enjoyed a brief chat. They found some of the workplace humor around the place they were visiting funny.

It was nice to hear that they were so interested and engaged in the visit!

wow. kinda sad. not a peep of this visit in the news or internet. I would have thought it would be all over TMZ or the like. Actually, this is the 1st I've heard of the viist. I gave up following them cause they are boring. Had I'd known, I could have driven the 20 min to see them! oh well.

Mariel 11-15-2013 07:56 PM

The elaborately carved arch at Stanford, which Letizia and Felipe are pictured in front of, is the entrance to the Memorial Church. My first husband's memorial was in that church, and my Greek roommate got married there. I do not particularly like the florid mosaic style there, but they didn't show much of that in the picture, just the ornate carving. The stone used is the same as the stones of Florence, as the Stanford railway magnates who set up this university as a memorial to Leland Stanford Junior, wanted it to not only look like Florence but even have the same color and type of stone--so those in the know told me anyway. I met my first husband there. It is beautiful but sinister...lots of mind alteration research goes on there, I am told. I haven't been in touch with it for many years, so what they do now I don't know. Probably the same mix of brilliant and sinister.

letizia looks radiant although at times i believe she looks a bit too serious and doesn't seem to engage in conversation which makes her look rather unapproachable.

i was hoping to hear her speaking in english in some of the video clips but unfortunately felipe seems to be the only one we can hear talk. there's a bit of her speaking in english during the reception given to them, but we don't seem to hear her very much. i don't think in all her time as princess we got to hear her speaking in english at all.

PS EDIT: I correct myself. here's a video from about a year ago where we can hear letizia speaking in english.

Normally in events with the prince, she stays in the background and leaves him the leading role in the talks. They should have let the princess have some solo event on this trip, the Royal House never gives her the opportunity to have a prominent role in trips abroad.

Queen Sofia clearly holds on to her trips abroad, doesnt she :biggrin: I mean, F&L are in the US right now and Letizia could have picked up the Queen's event in New York but no way. I am pretty sure it was scheduled that way a long time ago, the Kings were supposed to do the trip to California & Florida and the Queen would have flown from Florida to NY to do her event.

Letizia is certainly fluent in English, but from what we have heard she has a very heavy accent a la Rafael Nadal, typical for many Spaniards who have never had to use English or only started very late. Felipe is almost accent free, I am sure he grew up bilingual.

Duke, they had a trip planned to the king and queen to Florida in April. The trip to Los Angeles was planned for the Prince and Princess in November, to attend the Spain-US Council Forum that they have presided over recent years in Spain and the US.

With the king's health problems they are changing the agenda permanently. The logic in this situation would have been that if the prince and princess are in the U.S. they attend the gala in New York, would only be half a day more in the country. But it seems that the queen did not want to give up her party, although that would involve to spend money on an unnecessary trip.

i can definitely hear a spanish accent when felipe speaks - and letizia, unsurprisingly, doesn't have that much of an accent. maybe a bit more than felipe, but not shocking. she surely must have gotten private diction tuition, and maybe she did have a more important accent when she first started learning. but judging from the video i posted, her accent is not bad now. although that was a speech that she could practise at home: maybe her accent shows more when she is talking freely and engaging in conversation.

Seems that F&L received a warm welcome to Miami. Those Viva España and Viva Asturias were great to hear :smile:

Exactly. Sofia loves being Queen with all its privileges, she is as conscious as JC in this matter. I believe that even though the relationship with her daughter in law is ok, Sofia sees herself clearly as superior and does as she pleases, takes the best events for her that frequently include travelling abroad (very much unlike Beatrix who often left the field for Maxima). She loves protocol that secures her position. She has been around for too long and endured too much to leave the field for her DIL.

Funny, I dont hear almost no accent with Felipe. I can hear that he is neither navite american or english but I cannot hear a spanish accent. re letizia, I dont think a speech can measure her english pronounciation. its not too difficult to do a speech as you can learn the text and practice it ad nauseam. Still, I hear a strong accent in her speeches. its very difficult to learn a language as an adult in terms of pronounciation, I dont think Letizia was fluent in English at school already.

I hear a nice "international" accent from Felipe, neither American, nor British. I imagine he learned his english from both. I hear absolutely no spanish accent at all, as an American, I hear certain words prounouned in the british way.
Letizia has a very thick spanish accent, imo, and I am a bit surprised with hers. She may be able to read and write english, but obviously hasn't had to speak it much.
