Letizia and Felipe: their vibrant relationship with the Spanish National Team


The fever for the Spanish Soccer Team only increases after the exciting debut that Luis Enrique’s boys made in the World Cup in Qatar. The 7-0 against Costa Rica places them as one of the top favorites for the bookmakers to win the coveted title, but there is still a long way to go. During the debut, the national team had the support from the stands of Felipe VI, who traveled without Letizia, but who became a fantastic talisman. He even did not hesitate to go down to the locker room at the end of the game to personally congratulate the heroes of the match and, incidentally, take a shirt signed by all.

This image and all those that the King has left in Qatar only reaffirm his commitment to the Spanish National Team. Traveling the world to see them play is something that is not difficult for him because he really enjoys each of the matches he attends, be it in South Africa, Spain or Qatar. The Queen was not present with the monarch, who stayed in our country complying with her requirements, although there are those who dared to say that she did not travel as a sign of protest against the violation of some fundamental human rights that Qatar does, especially to the women, an area in which Letizia is tremendously committed.

His absence is by no means to say that Felipe VI’s consort does not support the Spanish National Team. She does it her way, for example, wearing a red-toned look on the same day that the Spanish team played in Doha, in what was a clear nod. In fact, she coordinated with her husband thousands of miles away because the King also wore a red tie.

We will not see Letizia in Qatar, unless Spain does the machada and sneaks into the final of the tournament, which will be held on December 18. Precisely, in another final –South Africa in 2010– We saw the most soccer image of the Queen, a scarf around her neck like another fan, who heads this article.

That night in Johannesburg was unforgettable for the whole country because La Roja lifted their first and so far only World Cup. A feat that a few days later had its official reception in Zarzuela, like any national sporting feat that lends itself. This is how this superior image was born in which the sympathetic note was given by little Leonor and Sofía dressed in the colors of the National Team.

Much has been said about Letizia’s commitment to soccer, questioned on several occasions. It hasn’t helped that I carry three years without attending the final of the Queen’s Cup. On the contrary, Felipe has indeed inherited that role from his father and there is not a single Copa del Rey game from which he is absent. We review how the best moments of the Kings with the National Team have been.
