The Kings received the Romanian president, in his first visit to Spain after the entry of his country into the EU

The Kings have been officially at noon today at the El Pardo Palace to the president of Romania, Traian Basescu, in his first state visit to Spain three days after the establishment of democracy in his country in 1989 and the accession to the European Union last January 1.

Don Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía welcomed to Basescu and his wife walk from the Rolls Royce of National Heritage, in which the guests moved to El Pardo, place of residence for foreign leaders visiting Spain.
After a few minutes of lively conversation between the two heads of state have been listened to the anthems of both countries and have shot the 21 the salvos of honor.
Then King and Basescu have reviewed a company honors before greet delegations of the two countries and attend the parade of the various bodies of the Royal Guards from the stage of honor.
Nothing more complete the welcoming ceremony, Juan Carlos and the Romanian president have maintained their first encounter.

The first lady in her black and white outfit is by far and far the most elegant woman in the picture, lets hope the royal ladies pick it up for the gala dinner.

thanks for the pictures

Thanks for the pictures. I agree the First Lady looks fab on both occasions. She changed outfits and the President changed his red tie as it looked alike to the one of the King Queen Sofia looks very elegant but I was wondering if there is a reason that she's all in black.

Letizia's outfit is terrible down from the waist; it's a repeat and I've said it before. It would be so easy to look nice with some elegant wide leg pants instead of this towel-turned-into-a-skirt and black stockings; sorry but she looks second class and underdressed next to the First Lady and Queen Sofia. I do hope she'll do better tonight and won't wear her red gala top again on this occasion, for the fourth time.

Letizia should be wearing a suit, a jacket and a skirt will be perfect for the ocassion, but not this type of clothes and not that skirt with those black leggins, she seams to like them a lot, they indeed look confortable and warm, that's true!

ahh what lovely pictures from the arrival. First lady looks lovely intresting to see her in two different outfits but so did the Queen. King looked like he had some noce talk going on, always nice to see a happy side of the king, I guess usually he has a serioues look on him. Letizia looked nice, nothing boring

The Queen looked really elegant! The dark blue (or is it black ^^) suits her very well!

I don't really like Letizia's outfit-choice!
I think the black stockings ruin the whole outfit! The grey color makes her look rather pale.. so, I'm not too fond of her look this time.

I really don't see what is wrong with Letizia's outfit or Sofia's outfit. They look fine to me! This is a day event and the Spanish royals aren't known for that really dressy stuff like the Danes and Dutch. Everyone looked appropriate to me!

I understand we are all entitled to our own opinions but the negative opinions in the Spanish forums has really been putting a damper on my enjoyment of this RF. It's always the same people basically saying the same darn thing each event. The comments are getting old! Really old! I understand you all can careless but now I feel better for letting that out.

Well, Aurora , as you said: Everyone is free to express his/her opinion.
I don't think there are that much negative comments about Letizia or Sofía dressing badly. Having a look through the latest events threads I have the feeling most people were quite satisfied with the outfit choices (at least, I was ).

I think Letizia should stay away from black stockings. I hate those stockings no matter who wears them! They look horrible on Mette-Marit, on Mary and on Letizia. I just cannot stand them.
Especially when they are combined with a skirt or outfit that's lighter then the stockings.

I don't think someone made a negative comment about the Spanish Royal Family. I only saw some comments by members who didn't like the OUTFITS worn by the Queen and Princess. Do we need to say "Haleluja" and "Amen" to every outfit worn by them? I don't think so.
