Princess Letizia is friendly and sophisticated. Kate Middleton too. However, worldwide press prefers Letizia today.
It seems that Princess Letizia of Asturias will be queen on June 18 2014. A problematic coronation, because her husband, Prince Felipe, has inherited the problems created by his father, King Juan Carlos I, in recent years. However, people are delighted with Princess Letizia. She is nice, elegant, clever, and unlike Kate Middleton, she had a great professional future (as a journalist) before getting married.
Yes, everybody is comparing both princesses. The British Daily Mail said that both, Letizia and Kate are brown, chic, and slim women, with a modest background but “unlike Kate, Letizia forged her own stellar career before marriage.” And this is really important. In fact, Letizia was already a famous TV presenter in Spain, who didn’t need anything from anyone.
The French press is also thrilled with Princess Letizia. According to Gala magazine “The mother of Leonor and Sofia is, more than ever, ready to reign in Spain next to Prince Felipe, with humility, grace and style. Long live the queen.”
Furthermore, Princess Letizia is cover of the Daily Telegraph, which highlights that she is applauded not only for her style, but for her simple ways to people. And magazine People appreciates her popular likes, for example her love of indie music or movies in theaters.
Many people in Spain are now asking for a referendum to choose between monarchy or republic. The prince Felipe of Asturias must strive to be a beloved king. However, no doubt, he has a great support in his wife.
Once again, long live the queen!
