As far as I'm aware Letizia is wearing the Spanish Order of Charles III as H.M. has not yet received any Danish ones.

The Spanish Order of Charles III as she doesn't have a Danish Order yet.

I guess it's great Frederik switched to Danish but how bad for us, I was enjoying his speech
And for the laughs I guess it's getting better

She is wearing the Order of Charles III. She doesn't have the Order of the Elephant, because there never was a state visit to or from Denmark during her tenure as Princess of Asturias/Queen.

He has improved in recent month and I think he has taken lessons.

I agree but while the Danish language part of his speech is great and very funny the English language part shows there's still room for some improvement.

Queen Mathilde also does not yet have a Danish order and is wearing her Belgian one.

What a loving speech Frederik just held. Modern, funny and confident. "Dear mother.. (not Queen)"
Wish you could hear what he said in Danish. Margrethe looked so proud, didn't she?

There are breaks in between the speeches as the cameras are turned off while people eat.

It's not only me who is impressed by Frederik's way of delivering the speech. The commentators on TV2 praise him as well.

Yes, I didn't see at the arrivals but when the family and the Euro royals entered the dining hall she came and sat at the long table.

There were State Visits from Denmark to Spain and viceversa in the past, but I guess he was too young to receive the order. Probably Frederik doesn't own a Spanish one either.

I spotted GD Henri being a gentleman helping Letizia with the chair, which I saw no one from the younger generation of royals doing with their table partners, buh

Great (and well deserved) praise to Frederik from the TV commentators.

I also liked that he wished King Phillipe happy birthday

Now there is a pause while the royals having their dinner...

The King of Norway doesn't look well at all. I was quite alarmed when I saw him.

This is some of the things Frederik said in his speech to his mother:

"You are justified in being celebrated when you turn 75 and that is something you have taken seriously. A lot of Danes have taken part in the celebration.
You had expected and hoped to spend more time with the family before faith caught up and announced your lot as queen.
There are even grandparents who have lived only with you as head of state. You have always accomplished to make it look easy.
Dear mother, you have insight, wit and intelligence. You must know that no matter what the future will bring, you will at any time have my very highest respect".

It was a lovely gesture from Prince Frederik to wish a Happy Birthday to King Philippe

It was the same for the Netherlands. The last danish-dutch State Visit before this year was in 1984 but Willem-Alexander got it before this years State Visit. But probablly becuause he is Margrethe's godson.
