the queen and letizia both looked as usual lovely in those pastel colours and very relaxed.

nice touch that it was felipe driving the car from the airport and not the typical official car where both couples would separate into 2 different cars while being driven! i guess the spanish know how to make people feel at home and add that personal touch - although i must admit i like the official protocol and having 2 different cars :)

EDIT:
just to add to the "unofficial-ness", this article mentions how the plane that their majesties used was actually being piloted by WA. well done, sir!

I agree. It was very nice to see this. They have been through a lot. I must say though, that the King is looking rather frail in some of those pics.

Nice to see them all together. It is obvious that they are old friends/ acquaintances, all of them seem to be in an excellent mood.

King WA flew the plane to Madrid himself btw. And the prince of Asturias drove the party to Zarzuela, with the ladies seated in the back..

Lovely jewels for Queen Máxima. Nice that she respected the Spanish court: no hats. But to liven it up she put a diamond butterfly brooch in her hair. All ladies looked lovely.

Loved both Maxima and Letizia's outfits today, although Maxima gets the award for wearing major bling with such comfort and ease. Is Letizia really that thin or is she wearing 2 Spanx? Unbelievable!

Wonderful reception for the new King and Queen. I can imagine that Maxima felt very at home being able to speak Spanish with her hosts. Wouldn't it be nice if they stayed with F & L while in Madrid. Now that would be a fun sleepover now wouldn't it. Everyone looked great, although I will say that King J-C looked a little worse for wear.

Maxima always has something to say. She has such a sparkly personality.
