It has been all over the Austrian newspapers this morning. Great that she will come to Vienna again! 10 years ago she was here with Felipe at the funeral of our late President Klestil.

A video from the Austrian TV showing details about the exhibition and the Kunsthistorisches Museum, as well as the suite ready at Sacher Hotel, and including a short interview with the Spanish ambassador in Austria:

Königin Letizia: Details ihres Wien-Besuchs - wien.ORF.at

Letizia has a suite at her disposal although she will not stay overnight. She will have lunch with the Austrian President, Heinz Fischer, and possibly visit a social project. The inauguration of the exhibition will be at 6:30pm, and Letizia will hold a speech in english. Kunstmuseum Vienna got 7 paintings from Velazquez from Prado Museum.

Here is a short video from the warm greeting to the Austrian president and wife, and the arrival to Hotel Sacher (quite a crowd waiting for Letizia there, and many Spaniards, it seems )

In any case, I'm glad that she is able to go on her own now and make speeches, converse, and understand what other people are saying around her.

Acording to Hola, Letizia visited some social project after lunch with the Austrian First Lady. It's odd since there are no photos
Reina Letizia: Los primeros pasos en solitario de la reina como soberana en Viena

The speech, I hope we'll get to see some video:

She certainly speaks English - I doubt anyone could do a job involving high level representation without doing so. English is taught in schools although not to a high standard. No information was released back when she became engaged to Felipe on her English ability but by then she had already covered big international events such as 9-11 for tve (the Spanish national tv) so her English must have been acceptable to at least get by. However at the engagement period she underwent some professional English tuition with a very respectable professor of English so that she could polish it for her future duties. So yes she does speak English confidently.

You can check videos of past speeches or conversations in the languages thread - I believe there's a couple of letizia speaking in English.

She also speaks a bit of Catalan and of Spanish sign language due to her involvement with the association.

Her German is so bad, but it was nice from her trying
