Letizia's full schedule after maternity leave

Elsa M. translated this article about Letizia’s February and March schedule from in the Royal Forums Thanks for sharing!

The year of Princess Letizia’s maternity may probably also be the one of her great fly as Princess. The agenda of her first week of official activity, after the maternity leave, already gives a slight idea of a greater protagonism that Doña Letizia will assume throughout this year.

In fact, the Princess of Asturias faces these days a marathon of activities, that started last Monday with a swift visit to Tatoi (Greece), along with her husband, Prince Felipe, Queen Sofia and the Infantas Doña Elena and Doña Cristina, in order to pay tribute to Queen Federica (mother of the Spanish sovereign), at the 25th anniversary of her death. At her return, the Princess travelled to Valencia, in order to inaugurate, along with the Prince, the 24th International Fair of Ceramics, Kitchen and Bath Equipments (CEVISAMA 2006). Today, Wednesday, the commitments of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia are located at home. The Princes joined the Kings and the Infantas in the lunch offered to the Russian President, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, and his wife, Liudmila, which took place at the Palace of La Zarzuela. Tonight, Doña Letizia will dress a gown and tiara for the first time since the birth, so to attend the gala dinnermat the Royal Palace. Finally, this tight week of activities end with the Princes of Asturias traveling to Sofia, Bulgaria, for the inauguration of the new headquarters of the Cervantes Institute.

Besides, the following months will also full of acts, in case it’s confirmed that the Princess will accompany Don Felipe to a the investitures of the new heads of state; 9 in all: Bolivia, Honduras, Colombia, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, Portugal, Peru and Venezuela.

New wardrobe

For the next months, the Princess is already managing new clothes for the acts she has ahead of her. Doña Letizia has returned once again to trust the Spanish designers Adolpho Domínguez and Felipe Varela, for the daytime official acts of the next weeks, and Lorenzo Caprile, for gala gowns.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is celebrating her name day

Hello! Some of you might experience blurry pictures that are not clear to view until they are opened in a big window; this is most likely due to your browser. I believe that most of you use the Internet Explorer which causes the pictures to resize and therefore get blurry.

To have the best view of the "royal images", I recommend downloading Opera. Installing Opera on your computer still lets you keep/and use your initial browser (IE or Firefox,...) and does not harm your computer in any way.
Using Opera is a lot more secure when it comes to virus protection, pop-up's, etc.. which made me switch initially. Also it is faster since it is possible to disable the loading of pictures manually (this is important when you have a dial-up connection).

Additionally, when it comes to looks - Opera got it all. You can customize your browser window in so many ways (colors, tabs, panels,...), you can use mouse gestures, receive your e-mails in just the way Outlook Express works - everything combined on one platform! And: RSS for those who are familiar with it. Every time a blog is updated by its owner, you instantly receive a message telling you so!

Wow! It's truly a great thing - but see for yourself! For any questions, you have my e-mail!
