I wonder what language they're using? Everyone besides W-A is either a native or long time speaker of Spanish. I understand that he has been learning the language since marrying Maxima.

The lovely greetings between all these old friends is just lovely and shows how close the connections between all the European royals are.

As expected, the visit is successful.

So do I. Despite the necessary protocol of curtsies, etc. you can tell that they are very friendly and delighted to see one another!

Well at least Maxima speaks spanish, makes things so much easier and Im sure it also made things more comfortable. I love the fact that Letizia showed respect for Maximas position and curtsied even though they are friends. I give her two thumbs up for that one. :)

Lovely photos of the Spanish Royals meeting King WA and Queen Maxima, it appears that they have warm relationships with each other. I particularly liked the photos of Maxima and Letizia hugging each other and the photo of WA talking to Juan Carlos.

And Maxima is beautiful in that pale blue dress and matching earrings. It is heartwarming to see the hugs and big smiles. I'm glad for all of them. Good friends make the hard things in life more bearable.

On TV they were saying that when M & L hugged each other at M&W-A arrive, they heard Máxima telling Letizia: "Qué guapa!" (You look beautiful!) I loved the images of all them together and what a close relationship they seem to have.

Love W-A, he seems such a nice and funny guy.
