I love these two as a couple. She has filled the shoes of Queen Consort so nicely, they’ve raised 2 lovely daughters, seems like there is more respectability for the monarchy in Spain with them (after other family mess ups) and they do appear to love each other, in a quiet, discrete way. Nice to see these types of moments and the new thread idea is good - to remind us these moments do happen and not for show. 💕
They were in love to begin with and they are still in love now. They've weathered some really tough times with the Spanish press totally sold out to Juan Carlos, Sofia, Elena and Cristina but they emerged as a stronger couple. I shudder thinking what would have happened to the monarchy in Spain if Felipe had not married Letizia. Felipe is a great king but he has behind him an exceptional woman.
They're an outstanding team for sure. You can always see how much mutual pride, respect, and admiration they have for each other. Felipe hit the jackpot with her - I think she's an excellent partner for everything he's had to face.
