How lovely! They are all so warm together, what a wonderful surprise. Here's hoping for Leti's new tiara at the gala tonight! Anybody got the info on the dress code?

Its a dinner of honour, no state dinner = no tiaras. Not sure about the dress code, I think we see at least long evening dresses for the ladies but I doubt black tie for the men.

Charles is being received the way he is being received (El Pardo etc), despite being only the heir, because of the importance of his position within the BRF, its the world's most renowned monarchy. F&L receive C&C for protocol reasons since they are peers.

The couples look very comfortable with each other.

I read it will be black tie and long dress.

could well be, the Spanish hardly ever do black tie unless they do events with british or american guests where black tie for the evening is very common. even foreign presidents are usually received with tie/evening suit dresscode.

Thanks for sharing these awesome photos. The Crown Princely couples look lovely.
As far as I remember the Princess of Asturias is not fluent in English.
Does the Duchess of Cornwall speak Spanish? They seem to have a lively conversation in the pictures.

I have read in many articles, that Letizia speaks English very well.

IMO pic #22 is a very flattering pic of the Duchess. I must say that I very much like the fact that she wears nice jewels all the time. i.e: during the day time. Most Royal ladies don't. (with exception of the Queen)But I like the fact that she does not save them for evening events.
Letizia has a lot of grey hair in the front! I don't know why that suprises me, but it does.
I just wish she would look a little happier. She always looks like she would rather be any other place than where she currently is. Don't get me wrong, I don't want her to have a smile plastered on her face 24/7, but between her somber dress, and her somber look, she does not look happy. She is too pretty to look so drab.

Letizia is fluent in english. There is a video on youtube with her speaking to children in english, from what I heard she knows english very well, she speaks with a lovely spanish accent.

Camilla looks great, but Letizia should have worn a nice pair of ruby earrings to complete this look, and maybe even one or both of the 2 diamond and ruby brooches she wore to Mary and Fred's wedding back in 2004, then she would of looked good! The room is not the typical ballroom that dinners are normally held in, wonder which one it is...
