Happy Birthday Your Royal Highness

When Spain's Crown Prince Felipe, Prince of Asturias, made up his mind to marry Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano in November 2003 not only did he connect with the Spanish people by marrying a commoner but he also ensured the country had one less working journalist. Smart fellow...

PhotobucketPrincess Letizia, in fact, comes from a long line of journalists: not only her father, Jesús Ortiz Álvarez, but her paternal grandmother, Menchu Álvarez del Valle, worked in media. Her stepmother, Ana Togores, is also a journalist. The moral of the story is, should the Asturias' marriage go south like that of the Duque and Duques de Lugo expect a really awesome expose.

She and the prince have two children - Infantas Leonor and Sofía - and undertake a wide range of public activities both in Spain and overseas on behalf of various charities and the King, Juan Carlos I.
