A nice Royalista gallery, focusing on Sofia and Leonor: GALLERY: Leonor and Sofia have fun on National Day | Royalista

And from Daily Mail: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...de-Madrid.html
- And in typical Daily Mail fashion they can't quite figure out who is who...

They have, the carpets are currently being restored so for a time we'll get to see the gorgeous marble floor (from this and other rooms).

Thanks. Actually i think they should leave it like this. Or only put smaller carpets on it so that the floor can be seen and not cover all of it.

Yep, it's such a pity that the floor can't usually be seen, isn't it? However, seems like the carpets are necessary to protect the old floor that could be easily damaged by the Palace's visitors everyday and even more in this kind of events in which ladies tend to wear so high and thin heels

By contrast, here is a picture from last year's reception, with the carpets on. I really prefer the contrast of the nude, fair floor with the red walls...

The carpets had also been removed in the rooms used at the presentation of Ambassadors credential letters:

I visited the Royal Palace last month and a friend commented that the carpets needed cleaning. They must have heard her!

Or the Queen did
It seems it was her idea to restore the carpets.

Quite rainy weather today, but thanks to it we got to see the very patriotic umbrella of Ms Cifuentes, President of the Com. of Madrid!

A short video from the National Athem moment. Was Sofia swinging along the music?

And another one with the best moments of the parade:

A festive ocasion as always even if the weather was dreadful.

I managed to see almost the entire ceremony in streaming. Finally Leonor and Sofia were out again.

Queen Letizia of Spain joins her family on Spain's National Day | Daily Mail Online

Leonor and Sofia were adorable in their cozy coats and they get more professional year by year. It was great to see them standing with their umbrellas during the National Anthem playing, marching along mum and greeting all the authorities

A video dedicated mostly to leonor and Sofia:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=_n0wl5MK31Q

I think leonor seems to really enjoy this event. She's always smiling when the camera focus on her and looks genuinely interested on everything that goes on. Can't say the same about Sofia, who was sporting quite an "I'd rather be at home" kind of look

- And this is a bit OT, but saw it on FB and couldn't resist to share it. October 12th is always an important day for all the militars involved, but sure this year's parade will be really special for this guy and his girlfriend, such a sweet moment
