Well, definitely the ceremony benefits from the new scenary, the Royal Palace and surroundings are majestic.

I love how excited Felipe and Letizia were while explaining to their guests that it's the first time they do the ceremony there, right after greeting them

A lot can be overhearded, it's nice to hear the two couples interacting. Especially Letizia embracing the First Lady just after meeting her and asking how she was and how was the visit going

It was held at the Royal Palace of El Pardo, in Madrid's outskirts, where the Heads of State stay during their visit (See this thread, for instance).

Letizia looked lovely and what a coincidence that the ladies are in similar colors.
Love the palace, its a nice change for such visits.

Video from Casa Real:


The Ceremony is great, but the Royal Guard needs to learn how to manage with the canons' smoke We forgive them since its their first time. Maybe they need to find a better place fo the canons.

I watched the ceremony live on TVE (international channel) and similar thoughts crossed my mind. First, I couldn't hear the national anthems because the music was drowned out by the noise from the cannons. Second, at one point, I could barely see the king and the president as they disappeared in a thick cloud of smoke.

I agree that the Royal Palace yard is the perfect location for the welcome reception, but the ceremony looked a little bit disorganized today, maybe because it was being held there for the first time.

Seems it clicked between Letizia and Juliana :)
Agree the courtyard looks spectacular.

The canons were placed at the arches at the West wing of the yard, from where there is a great sight over the gardens of "Campo del Moro" and the city of Madrid that goes downwards:

Scenographically, it's an appropriate place, in the highest point of downtown Madrid (the palace and cathedral area is appropriately called the "cornice" of Madrid). Here is a view from the river area (west of the palace) of the gardens and building (and the arcade pointed out):

But obviously it gets too close to the yard where the action is taking place, so I'm afraid they'll have to place the canons in a less visible and representative spot if they keep using the courtyard for these ceremonies.

If I recall it correctly, there were also cannons at Felipe's proclamation but they were located down in the gardens. After all, the "Campo del Moro" garden remains closed whenever the palace is used for State functions for security reasons, so it would not be an extra impediment. And there is full of room in the gardens to keep the smoke away from the yard

As expected, Mrs Awada looked lovely. Her gala lace dress was feminine.

Really Juliana Aguada, looks stunning! I wonder who made her dress! beautiful!

HAHA Queen Letizia had to help President Macri to choose the right glass for the toast, he admites, oh, I pick up the wrong glass! He is very educated man, Engineer and travel the world but I think he forgot to learn the protocol for the table!
