Greetings, applause and flatteries
Hundreds of calagurritanos jammed the streets to receive Dukes de Lugo

“A precious hair”
And indeed, after their words Dukes de Lugo appeared before the outcry of all the citizens. To his step, the public offered extensive applause them that the real pair was thankful with multiple greetings. And not only to the neighbors located on foot of street, but also to which windows and balconies were shown in. Of Doña Elena it called the attention his height, the dress chosen for the ceremony and, mainly, its melena. “It has a precious hair and, in addition, it has surprised to me because it has not been combed with the braid to which it has to us customary”, it said Aurora. But mainly there was a point in which everybody agreed: “She is more handsome than in tele”. Don Jaime de Marichalar also seeded flatteries. “He is a horseman, it seems educated very and very elegant”, it assured Incarnates. And thus, between all those commentaries, the Dukes entered the Ideal. Many occurred by satisfied, but most unconditional they decided to hope to that the function finalized to return to salute to the real pair.

Thank you fan and LaChica for sharing the pictures. Don Jaime seemed very relaxed and very smilling too :).

What can I say, they looked good and people were really excited for being with them... a true balm for the heart! (I like that balcony picture where people seem to be looking down to see the Dukes below)

Gosh, I don't know about that. In which picture was he smiling? Or relaxed? He usually looks like Dracula...glowering, dark, and down at the mouth. And what's with the greasy stuff in his hair? Ecch!

I can't tell how much I would like that people stop saying those things about Don Jaime. I know it is not possible but I can't help wish for it.

Yes he was smilling, despite his difficulty in doing so (God help us all from having a stroke in a such early stage of our lives) and thanks to fanletizia we can see him doing so in the below pictures

I've seen a smilling, tender and next-to-people's Don Jaime in the pictures of this event, he didn't avoy the personal contact and he tried, at least I see it that way, to smile back when saluting them.

Don Jaime has never been the athletic type man, but I see no reason why we have to label him with less-pleasant names.
