That broad sash is not doing anyone any favours...

Both royal ladies looked lovely. I'm over my initial wonderment that they both wore black and then I considered that mustard yellow ribbon -- deal Lawd! I know understand.

BTW, the First Lady of Mexico is gorgeous!

It is very poignant to see the Queen wearing the 'Fleur de Lys' tiara for the last time..

But i'm sure we all agree *she wore it well*...

Why would this be the last time that Queen Sophia would wear this tiara? I don't understand...maybe there might come a time when she is at other important dinners for other heads of state...could she wear it then? Does this not belong to her as Queen of Spain? Just asking and learning.....Thanks!

You said it yourself, the tiara is to be worn by who ever is the Queen of Spain. Therefore as Sofia soon won't be Queen anymore it will be passed on to Letizia.


I'm so exited about the fact that there finally was a tiara event in Spain again. Sofia really goes out with a bang and both she and the other ladies looks great.

I couldn't help notice how attractive the Mexico First couple is. Found their 2010 wedding photo - beautiful!!

Mrs Peña Nieto was a telenovela actress for several years. Yep-she's gorgeous!

I appreciate the difficulty of matching that awful sash. Perhaps the new King will order a narrower "Womens" version . . . we can but hope.

I thought Queen Sofia looked very regal and Letizia looked like she is stepping up her game something fierce!

The sashes were a gift of the Mexican President and it's not up to the new King to make them narrower. The only sash he can regulate are the Spanish ones, and those already have the ladies' version. (i.e. Angelica Ribera's sash)

Sofia was awarded the Sash of the Order of the Aztec Eagle in 1977 and Letizia hers in 2008.

In March 2011 there was a State Visit from Chile to Spain. Quite some time, if you ask me.

The last outing of the fleur-de-lys tiara was the State Visit to Japan in November 2008. I wonder when the next time will be?

Both royal ladies looked truely great, imo. Letizia again had a very good hairstyle to support the tiara.
