They were watching animals and birds.

Donaņa is a natural park, an important wildlife reserve and they went there to commemorate its 50th anniversary as a national park. The dunes and the marshes are part of the landscape of the area.

https://en.wikipedia.org/...Do%C3%B1ana_National_Park

King Felipe knows the place well, in 1996 he participated in a television documentary about wildlife in Spain and Doņana was one of the places he visited.





 Doņana area is also famous because there is the Palace of Las Marismillas, a residence used by the President of the Government, and that many international leaders have visited ... the last one,  Angela Merkel.

Thank you, lula. These photos are interesting. Sadly. they do not remotely resemble the more recent pics posted. A better showcase for the park would have been to  see what they were looking at instead of  their various poses across the dune. A wasted opportunity.

As beautiful as the photos are, I cannot understand the need for so many of them in various poses with the same backdrop. The video clip is also more of the same. The cynic in me wonders what the point is. Not a comparison but a reflection: Wills' and Kat's Pakistan tour photos told a story about a beautiful slice of Pakistan. What is this narrative supposed to be of? "Love in the Time of Desert?" The series of photos and especially the video clips are too "try hard".  Thinking

Maybe I'm too much an old-timer, but I always thought that highlighting their own country is the royals' job whereas sightseeing in a foreign country is frivolous. What is the interest to UK by highlighting "a beautiful slice of Pakistan"? Felipe and Letizia was celebrating the 50th anniversary of a national park and an important natural reserve that's under threat of climate change in their own country. That's what royals do...at least in the old time. Same with the idea of highlighting their own country's designers on official visits aboard instead of wearing designers from the visiting country. Kate really turned the idea of royal duties upside down.

P. S. Haven't been here for a while. Not sure why Kate appears in this folder. Is Kate no longer off-limit in other folders?

If what royals do when they travel through foreign countries is sightseeing rather than practising diplomacy at their government's behest, they should all stay at home. That would certainly help the environment.

The example of Kate and Wills could have been replaced by any royal couple on a recent trip in or out of the country. I could have used Victoria's visits as examples. That might have been less contentious. This is not about Kate. Not going there.

I was perplexed by the first set of photos posted. Lula  Star  , thank you for the 1996  photos - they piqued my interest in finding out more about the Doņana National Park. Isn't that what royal visits should do? Raise awareness? Pique interest? Return heritage to national/international awareness?

It is maybe 'choreographed spontaneity' and so many press photographers! and the magazines will love it (even although Leti has to tell her husband to put his arm on her  Secret) But ..... they seem to be happy together at the moment  so we must hope it will continue. It is a beautiful location.

Hey press photographers - some of us would like to see some shots of the wildlife they were looking at . . .

Good PR for the park too.  Wink

When they ain't demonstrative in public, their marriage is on the rock. When they are demonstrative, it's choreographed for the cameras. We knew they're miserable because tabloids told us so.

The dress was from Emporio Armani, a little bit more expensive than HB, but looked better on her than the HB version.

I quite like those low heel boots that didn't look chunky on her.
