Who is the Woman in Navy Blue, with President Hollande ? As I understood it, France is 'between' Premiere Dame's atm.

Ah, i've just discovered we have a new first lady here in France.
Awkward, to say the least...
At least the welcome was a truly grand affair ...

Believe it or not, it's Segolene Royal, ex Partner of the President, mother of his children and minister of the environment. She was obviously the highest minister avaiable to escort the Queen.

And, sadly as expected, the State Dinner will be business attire and cocktail dress :

Well I NEVER ! I thought it was Mme Hidalgo [Mayor of Paris], being of Spanish descent. I'm amazed he wheeled on his 'ex'....

It may look odd since she's Hollande's "ex"...but protocolary she's the highest minister avaiable so, in absence of a FL, she's the right one to accompany the Queen. It has nothing to do with her personal relationship with the President.

Indeed ! She's the number 3 in the French Government. Laurent Fabius, the Minister of Foreign affairs, the usual escort of the consort of the Head of state, is currently welcoming the Iraqi Premier at the Quai d'Orsay.

The Spanish media seems very impressed by the welcoming. In every report I've watched they remark the fact that just Queen Elizabeth II was received at the Arc de Triomphe with such honors.

President Hollande and Queen Letizia seem to get along very well

I've always have the impression Letizia and Hollande get along together.

I agree about the welcoming: it seems very pompous

I love her Carolina Herrera outfit for her visit to the Velazquez's exhibition. King Felipe and Queen Letizia, what a handsome and regal couple. They are truly Royals!

Note: the one on the first pic is not the real "Meninas". The true one is still in the Prado Museum in Madrid, I checked it last weekend

And a new video from DM: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/new...ris-visit.html

And French site Pure People has a fantastic gallery with photos from this morning: http://www.purepeople.com/article/le...avie_a160643/1

I may imagine Valerie Trierweiler 's Reaction seeing Segolène Royal welcoming the King and the Queen of Spain.

You two are bad, guys

The reception now live from the Elysee Palace's Daily Motion channel:

EDIT: Queen Letizia in a dark red lace dress with glitter applications, and what I guess are her rubi earrings.

Thanks for the photos!

The visit looks budget. President Hollande is an awkward person. I wonder who decided to drag Madame Royal to be the First Lady for ah hour.
