I have a couple of questions about uniforms, perhaps someone in the know can help?

I presume both King Juan Carlos and Crown Prince Felipe are wearing army uniforms?

I also presume King Juan Carlos' rank is a full general, but what is Crown Prince Felipe's rank? I'm not familiar with Spanish insignia, so as far as I can tell he is either lieutenant-colonel or major general?

They are wearing full dress uniforms as far as I can tell, is there no Spanish tradition for wearing a sabre or alternatively a dagger in connection with the full dress uniform?

Not, they do not use sabers.

Prince Felipe is lieutenant-colonel. The Royal House decided that the rank of the Prince is elevated progressively, parallel to his companions of generation in the army.

I found her clothes quite ugly. I don't like the clothes of all ZP's angels (the female ministers) this time . Although I prefer the Spanish royals wear Spanish designer clothes on the National Day, Elena is the best dressed with her Lacroix IMO, she rolled back to her old 'good' time with Jaime .

It's a nice outfit, but I wouldn't say she is the best dressed

Interesting body language hereAre these two married? I apologize if I should know who they are, but I don't.

The ladies' outfits were simple but appropriate. I'm thankful Letizia left here pumps this time. It's good to see she's wearing pointed shoes again. Elena looks wonderful and Cristina is always beautiful. I'll give good ratings for the royal ladies.

Great pictures everyone, thanks for sharing them.
Its great seeing the whole family and Christina as well. I hope when the grandchildren are older they will be able to join the family on the family up front rather than the sidelines.

Celebration of the National Day
Madrid, 12/10/2012


Their Majesties the King and Queen, who will be accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Asturias and HRH Infanta Elena, chair the events to be held on the occasion of the National Day.

Madrid's "Canovas del Castillo" square will be the focus of a tribute to the flag and a military parade, after which there will be the traditional reception at the Royal Palace in Madrid to a Spanish society representation.
