This was the most dull royal State Visit at the Palais de l'Élysée ever. Even a visit at Schloss Bellevue in Berlin has more splendour than this one to M Hollande. What a shame.

I didn't notice a translator being used during the conversation between the President and the King. Would anyone know which language they were conversing in at that time?

The King can understand French and speaks it too, like his father.

Not even the courtesy of Black Tie, at the 'Gala' dinner' for 'honoured' guests... The standards at the Elysée have fallen yet further..perhaps they served Andouillettes for dinner ?

Some guests did not even dress in dark costume but just popped by in beige or grey suits. At a royal banquet! At the Palais de l'Élysée!

Felipe is doing the speech in French, his french is very good although he stumbles a little from time to time and the words don't come as natural, he reads a lot from the paper. I think he has been nervous and out of his comfort zone but still well done!
