The agenda was the same during the Chinese President's visit in 2015.
Normally the visiting Head of State has lunch the first day in Zarzuela and the second with the President of the Government, but as this visit is shorter, the Chinese President today dines in Zarzuela and tomorrow he has lunch with the president.

Great! She has now worn all 3 Spanish “ big guns” that were not available to her as Princess of Asturias: the Fleur de Lys, Ena’s pearl and diamond tiara, and the Cartier loop.

It was the only tiara she had not yet worn! This tiara suits you very well.

I just wrote the same on Twitter.
Queen Maria Christina wore the tiara higher up on the head and I think it would have suited Queen Letizia to gather it a little bit more. She has a great tiara friendly hairdo tonight.

I'm really astonished, and of course pleasantly surprised to see her with this tiara. I didn't expect it at a visit from China, but thought it might be worn at a State Visit to or from another monarchy.

the new tiara is lovely, but in my opinion too overpowering on letizia's petite frame.
