LONDON ENGLAND.- The safety of the British royal family is essential in the castillo de Windsor, so one of the most curious measures is to use nicknames to take care of them.
These names allow the security team, and the royals themselves, to have greater discretion so that few people find out where they really are.
Royals don’t use these names all the time, only when they want to go unnoticed.
See here: What will the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II be like?

Harry and Meghan They were the focus of criticism from the English people since they only deposited flowers in two graves located in the Los Angeles National Cemetery; one belongs to an artillery member from Canada and the other to a member of the Australian Air Force.
Despite the harsh restrictions of the queen and the constant criticism of the English community, the couple continued their life outside of Buckingham Palace, however, local media revealed that the sovereign took the decision of the veto because of her disobedience and faults to the order of the kingdom.

Some of these customs will need to be changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but efforts will be made to respect most. Which one do you think is the most unusual?
Nobody said it was easy, Letizia (48 years). The institutional functions of the wife of the head of State, for practical purposes, the work of the queen of SpainIt is not something that is studied in universities. If the complicated fact of “landing in this life situation different from the one I had” -as she defined it herself in an act of the Foundation for Help against Drug Addiction in 2015- is added a historical pandemic, the matter becomes even more hard.
If together with the news related to the health, economic and social crisis that seriously plagues Spain due to Covid-19, information is added that shakes the foundations of the monarchical institution due to the murky fiscal issues of his father-in-law, the king emeritusJuan Carlos (82), and other direct members of her husband’s family, King Felipe VI (52), the stage becomes a runaway horse impossible to tame.
But Letizia has done well. The image of the Queen has remained immaculate this 2020 and this is not the result of chance. It is the result of a meticulous daily work of austerity, transparency and meritocracy: some of the lines of action established by Felipe VI and Letizia since the beginning of his reign. Now JALEOS from THE SPANISH analyzes the reasons why this year Queen Letizia has conquered everyone.
1. Queen of recycling
Queen Letizia with four recycled ‘looks’.
After confinement, the tour of the autonomous communities and the private vacations enjoyed -this year in Madrid-, Letizia returned to work and in her roadmap it was clear that I was not going to release any article of clothing. Since she returned to her institutional agenda at the beginning of September, the Queen decided that it was not appropriate to wear dresses, shoes or accessories. In 2019, Letizia was crowned one of the royals more austere European countries, spending 42,000 euros in new garments. A ranking who led Meghan Markle (39), who in that year alone spent more than 450,000 euros in outfits from international firms such as Valentino or Dior.
Letizia’s insistence on not wearing any new garment, susceptible to analysis or criticism, has been such that even for a historically and traditionally premiere day like the Princess of Asturias Awards, chose to repeat dress. For the occasion, he wore a navy blue silk design signed by Delpozo Featuring a bateau neckline decorated with an architectural flower, French sleeves and a relatively tight silhouette. It premiered in December 2017.
2. Hair and facial naturalness

On March 26, Queen Letizia He reappeared in one of the meeting rooms of the Palacio de la Zarzuela after 15 days of isolation and quarantine for having maintained direct contact with the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero (32), then positive in Covid-19. For the first time in weeks Letizia decided to wear a loose hair that attracted attention and stood out for two details: the length and the uncompromising defense of his gray hair. Far from choosing to give herself a certain shape or cut ends or layers, the sovereign continues even today to wear what seems to be the longest and most natural hair of her entire reign.
On the other hand, the Queen has taken the determination to proudly display her first gray hair. No more dyes, highlights and highlights. His hair, finally, has a homogeneous tone: dark hazelnut. And the only thing that breaks that chromatic harmony are her gray hair, today already a symbol of identity for her. Regarding her face, it is no secret that Letizia often resorted to certain aesthetic treatments. A few tweaks that this year seems to have left aside, because naturalness is also seen in his face, much more relaxed, but equally perfect – fruit of its excellent diet, sports and exclusive cosmetics.
3. Letizia gets off her heels

Fashion is a form of communication and with garments, historically, Letizia has sent hundreds of thousands of messages to the world. An example: days after the scuffle with Queen Sofía in Palma, in that controversial acting at the doors of the hospital where the King Juan Carlos had just been operated, Letizia opened the back door of the car to her mother-in-law wearing a completely flat shoe. Sofía, on the other hand, wore a heel. Height footwear implies status and in these turbulent moments, on many occasions, Letizia has resorted to slow fashion wearing mules, sandals and loafers for their day-to-day acts.
4. The perfect replacement for King Philip
The queen: We are capable of projecting a modern, supportive and strong Spain
Letizia He is tenacious, constant and a perfectionist to the point of obsession. These skills argue that the Queen takes her job very seriously, to the point of being able to replace her husband, prepared to be King from the day he was born, without anyone noticing his absence. At the end of November, Felipe VI he was forced into quarantine after having had close contact with a positive for coronavirus. Letizia she took the scepter and the reins of the institution and replaced her husband in two official acts.
The first in Seville, where he presided over the inauguration of the first edition of the congress Tourism Innovation Summit (TIS 2020). “I have made him very envious – the King – when I said goodbye this morning”, Letizia revealed, as an anecdote, in her speech to the audience. The second of the acts took place in Valencia. There he presided the delivery of the Rey Jaume I Awards 2020 and gave a speech in Spanish and in a perfect Valencia. The fragment in the Levante dialect was “perfect. You can see the effort and care of the speech by the person who advises her,” explained an expert consulted by this newspaper. In the new speech, according to his analysis, there were two key words that denoted that the Queen involved a lot in the perfect diction: “help“, that she pronounced it with ce and ax, and”I will have“.
5. The journey of cooperation

To put the icing on the toughest year on record, a time in which millions of families around the world have been decimated by the coronavirus pandemic, Letizia did not want to miss the opportunity to carry out one of her most special activities. This is her annual journey of cooperation, a role that she inherited from Queen Sofia after becoming the consort of Felipe VI, and which takes her to travel the most disadvantaged areas of the planet.
This journey, under the tutelage of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, will last for two days -14 and 15 December- and its objective is that Queen Letizia know “first hand“the situation in Honduras and” transfer the solidarity of the Spanish people in these difficult times “aggravated by the pandemic, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement. It was precisely to Honduras, one of the poorest countries in America, the country where Letizia made her first cooperation trip as queen in 2015, which was completed in El Salvador.
With this trip in which the Queen will distribute humanitarian aid, it will show that the coronavirus pandemic has not ended the splendor of royalty, but for reasons such as those mentioned, Letizia has been able to restore and adapt masterfully to these difficult times.

The royal family is distinguished by having the best fashion style ever and also being very traditional or good, that’s what many think because the truth is that in one way or another, the members have broken the rules in their own way and they are the ones. clear examples:
The younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II had some problems at the time of their marriage, she fell in love with Peter Townsend, a war hero who worked in the palace, but the crown did not think that because he was a commoner and also divorced.
Before, it was very frowned upon for someone from a position within royalty to have an affair with someone “normal” and their romance managed to sneak into the public eye. She was forbidden on more than one occasion to marry him, as she was the third in line of succession to the throne. In 1955 they ended their relationship to relieve the reign, but it was a great scandal at the time.
Ana is the only child of the current queen and completely comes out of line as a princess having participated in the 1976 Olympics on the UK equestrian team. He competed in individual events, but did not win any medals. Even so, she broke the protocol of just being one more spectator of the event.
In another non-traditional act, she made sure that her two children with her ex-husband Mark Phillips, Zara and Peter, did not have royal titles. In fact the queen offered him one when he married Ana, but he turned it down so consequently they don’t have one either.
There is no doubt that Diana is perhaps the most famous on this subject because she was the first to speak publicly about diseases such as AIDS and those that have to do with mental health. He was also controversial when he gave an unauthorized interview to the BBC and opened up about his marriage, depression, and fighting bulimia. No one in the family would have dared to do something like that!
Thanks to her, taboos regarding health were broken and they began to see people seen with a different face throughout the United Kingdom, thus she became a great pillar and example to follow.
Being the daughter of Princess Anne, she followed in her mother’s footsteps and began riding from a very young age. He also competed for the GB team at the 2012 London Olympics and won a silver medal.
He also chose not to follow the tradition of adopting his partner’s last name in the beginning and it was until 2016 that he took it.
Harry took his mother Diana’s actions as an example when discussing openly on various topics such as mental health. As a curious fact, he has also talked about his own feelings and how he has dealt with his emotions in different situations in his life.
In addition, it should be mentioned that together with his wife Meghan Markle he moved to the United States, resigned his functions in the British royal family and sought financial independence on his own, that was a hard blow for the entire crown because they can act with all freedom without being harmed.
With the help of his brother, William founded Heads Together, a charity that fights stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital support for people with mental health issues. The way of raising their children also breaks the royal norms as he ensures, alongside Kate Middleton, to be an active father in the lives of his children.
