Question Spanish Orders

Hi! I just saw the wonderful pictures of the Chinese State Gala banquet this evening. I have a question and wondered if anyone can answer it. I would appreciate it.

What is the order that Inaki U is wearing? Why does Jamie D. not have one or does he? What is the highest official honor of Spain? Is it the Golden Fleece or the order of Carlos III?

Any enlightenment of this would be a great help.

Thanks,
Linda 85:)

I think the reason Inaki is wearing an order is because he was given an order of Sports Merit because of his contribution as former handball player of the spanish team.
is that right?

I don't think so. These orders worn during State Visits always belong to the other party. You get an order, each time you receive/visit a country, and the more visits you pay/receive, the more orders you get.
So, the sashes worn by the Chinese party are Spanish, but the ones worn by the Spanish are Chinese, I believe.

so, during this state visit, the members of royal family (i think the king, quee, and prince felipe) receive chinese orders?
are there any chinese order? it's quite weird because if the chinese president did receive a spanish order, he didn't wear it on a gala in his honour?
i also wonder, did princess letizia receive this chinese order?

elsa, is there a website that describe what orders do each members of the SRF has received?

thanks...

Well, I don't know if China has any orders or not, but that is what usually happens, when other countries visit Spain...

Anyway, here is a website with all the Spanish Military Orders:

thank you for the link, elsa...
what i actually meant is whether there's a site (or in official casareal.es) that mention what foreign orders have the king, queen, felipe, and the infantas received over the past years?
i saw something like this on kongehuset.no for the norwegian & kongehuset.dk for the danish
thanks a lot..

I don´t think so, the Royal Website of the SRF is very minimalistic

I know both Infantas received the order of Isabel the Catholic when they became 18 years old and started doing public acts

This is only partially right! It is true that during a state visit you wear the other country's decorations to honour them - but that is only if you have a decoration from that country- if you don't, you wear your own decoration.

The order Inaki wears is the Order of Sports Merit (Real Orden del Mérito Deportivo)- he was awarded this decoration in late 2001 for his Olympic accomplishments.
