I wish they would invite Infanta Elena back to this event in an official capacity it was sad to see her and her daughter watching it all from afar!

Not sure if anyone noticed the protocol breach by Spain's prime minister during the reception at the Palace.

After greeting the King and Queen, the prime minister and his wife placed themselves next to them to greet the other guests until a staff member rushed to remove them.

The prime minister is new to the post but had already been to this event before taking office so he knew what to do. It was a great error of protocol and there was a certain discomfort on the part of the Kings who did not realize why the Prime Minister and his wife stood there beside them instead of moving on like the rest of the guests. This subject was very prominent in the Spanish media and the royal house had to make a statement on the subject.

Sanchez was booed and hassled during the event, like many of his predecessors, maybe he was confused at his first ND as PM.

Thanks Blog Real & Duke of Marmalade

A temporary blonde moment then, I guess.

There was and incident because the paratrooper who carried the Spanish flag (one of the stellar moments every year) hit a streetlight and got hanged down on it. The poor man was absolutely devastated afterwards, who can blame him. Queen Letizia had a very warm gesture towards him at the end of the parade, taking a time to confort him and telling him: "it is allright" and "thanks for the work", video here:

And I say Queen Letizia because the good and beloved King greeted him and passed by without looking twice, and only came back to have sone words with him after his wife had done so.

This is being talked a lot on the media, with shy praise for Letizia individually and mostly praise for both "Their Majesties". Let's not permit any compliment to the cold witch of the north, as per usual

BTW, video of the incident (I must admit I expected worse by the "crack" sound, it was pretty scary):

Great to see the photos and videos of the National Day celebrations. Leonor and Sofia are always impeccably behaved - Felipe and Letizia should be proud of their daughters.
