Does this gala dinner mean white tie aka tiara alert?
(Yes, I'm that superficial :), but it's for a tiara)

lol, Charlotte, I was thinking the same.
It's a pity this is not an State Visit with tiaras, but at least we have a gala dinner. I hope the ladies will wear gowns at the very least, white tie and tiaras are very unlikely.

If he is received in El Pardo and there is gala dinner, it is a State Visit.

There have been official visits with gala dinners, are they never received in El Pardo in those cases?
(I hope not and that this is really a SV )

As far as I know, only on State Visits, upon arrival the guests are being received at El Pardo, usually followed by a lunch at Zarzuela, followed by a State Dinner at Royal Palace.

On official visits, guests are usually received for lunch at Zarzuela, followed by dinner of honour at Royal Palace (or Zarzuela, depending on imporatance) but depending on schedule either might be scrapped.

The structure of a State Visit is always the same one ... reception in El Pardo, lunch in Zarzuela, gala dinner in the Royal Palace ... there isn´t this structure in normal visits.

Thanks, I hope this is a SV then. We'll know for sure this friday, if nothing appears on the press first, when the Royal Household publishes the agenda.

The State Visit starts today at 10.30 a.m. with the official welcome at El Pardo, I'm impatient to see pictures
Maybe a moderator could change the title from official visit to state visit, for future searches
