this dress of letizia doesn't work much for me. i find the slit on the skirt a bit much for the queen and i actively dislike those slits on the armpits. i also find that tiara doesn't suit letizia much - i can see how it took her all these years to use it. who knows, maybe this is a statement by letizia following the issue with queen sofia in palma - that tiara was used a lot by sofia, and by letizia using it maybe it is a nod to the fact they actually get along (the media who don't know that it is part of the joyas de pasar at letizia's disposal can say that 'sofia lent it to her').

the only thing i like in the dress is the use of pearls sewn on the actual dress, it looks very innovative.

She looks lovely. The cress would be better without the numerous slits. They are awful. I think she looks great in the tiara.

The Official Welcome was at 10 in the morning, lunch was at 2pm. After the ceremony they had a drink of water and a chat at the Royal Palace, but then the President left to keep his agenda for the morning before meeting the King in Zarzuela shortly before lunch, and perhaps he stopped by El Pardo Palace, where he stays during the State Visit, which is very close to Zarzuela.

King Felipe and Queen Letizia with the President after the welcome ceremony:

The president and his wife have separated in the 80-ties but never divorced. He has a relationship for several decades with Rita Amaral Cabral, but they live separately and she does not accompany him on official occasions. She did meet Queen Letizia and King Felipe when the couple visited Portugal a few years ago.

Watched the video of the presentation line - there was one woman in a casual pair of trousers and cardigan! Did she miss the memo on the dress code? Spanish State banquets seem to be more "relaxed" than many of their european counterparts

I never really enjoy the Spanish State banquets as since Felipe's accession its just the King and Queen unlike other monarchies where several members of the RF and extended family attend.The same old tired lineup has become boring.

The welcome ceremony and settings are always very well done.
