This is the anniversary of the single most important thing that happened in Spain during our young democracy and she turns out dressed out as if she was going to the Grammy Awards?

She's the Queen, has to dress appropiately to every event, specially one as remarkable as this one.

Pedro Sánchez, in an interview with El País, spoke about the monarchy:
"Honestly, now that I have the opportunity to see first-hand the work that he has done these 40 years and that the Royal House does today, and in particular King Philip VI, I believe that the parliamentary monarchy is, right now, the key to the vault of a great constitutional consensus that was forged in 1978, and that I hope will last. Felipe VI is a king of his time, a king who defends gender equality, the commitment of Spain in the fight against climate change, the rights of workers and has a great sensitivity to the Catalan question and the diversity of our country, however much Catalan pro-independence has criticized him. Before I evoked the Second Republic. It is worth remembering that when the separatists wanted to secede from Spain [1934], in reality they did it against the Republic. Now they are doing it against a parliamentary monarchy. That is, they do not care what kind of structure and state model we have, what they want is to go against the being of Spain."

It was a nice surprise to see Leonor and Sofia at the event, and it was even more of a nice surprise to see the photos of Juan Carlos and Leonor interacting warmly together at the event! One can tell that Leonor is very close to her father and it's lovely to see. I loved the photos of her and Sofia talking amongst each other too (I think Sofia will be the more confident out of the two girls).

Queen Letizia has been accused of 'overapplauding' because she did not like the ovation that Sofia and especially Juan Carlos received from the audience. In the end, the biggest ovations were for them, and Letizia understood that it could not be like that, who deserved the biggest applause was Felipe VI. Despite efforts to understand each other, relations between the Bourbons remain complicated.

It makes total sense that Juan Carlos en Sofia get recognized for what they did 40 years ago and not Felipe as he was just a boy. Luckily Felipe understands that and lauded his parents. Unfortunately, his wife not so much... In addition, it's quite weird that Letizia defies Felipe in public by continuing her applause (to him!) while Felipe made it clear that he wanted her stop.
