They do this quite often now, it may attract more people to wait for them at the events, which would be fantastic as well.

And they´re greeting the guest at the palace´s courtyard, lovely. It is goegeous and looks more summery and islander.

I totally agree. Great PR move on their part. Get out let people see and be near you. Nice gesture greeting the guests outside as well. The King, Queen and Queen Sofia look so very relaxed. Loving seeing this.

Rarely have such disparate people participated in the same official celebration in Baleares mixed with authorities. The new life in the monarchy for opening relations with the society has also been shown tonight at the reception King Philip VI and Letizia hosted in the palace of La Palma Almudaina. A plural representation of civil and official life of the Balearic Islands has come to his call.
Stars like the ex-tennisplayer Carlos Moya, writer Carme Riera or opera singer Joan Pons, coincided with important social agents almost anonymous like former General Joseph Falco, the president of the Food Bank Foundation, or leader of the Project Man against drugs, Tomeu Català. Representatives of ONCE accompanied by their guide dogs, local leaders of the Islamic religion and neighborhood activists were among the guests. The comic EL Casta said he was "amazed and honored."

Gallery, they all look happy and relaxed.

Also under King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía there were informal receptions for people from different circles in society. The "formal diner" (which was never formal at the Baelaric Islands anyway) was always meant as a "Thank You" to the authorities for their hospitality and the provided security, transportation, etc. The differences are really not that big.

It's interesting to see the differences in greetings: some women curtsey to the Queens but not to the King, some don't curtsey to either King or Queens, some curtsey to all three. The men, too, have variations, though most seem to only nod their heads slightly. Some women did exceptionally deep curtsies - though that may be a function of physical ability.

Given the wide range it's clear that it's a case of doing what feels right to each person.

Anyone know what the 'modern' protocols are around the Spanish Royal Family regarding this aspect?

I'd imagine the protocol is relaxed and if guest want to curtsey they can do so but its not obligatory.

A curtsey indeed is always optional and never obligatory. Exactly like, for an example, saying "Royal Highness" or "Majesty". Also that is optional. Sir or Madam do perfectly well, no problem. When meeting politicians, you can see that members of the Partido Popular (the Conservatives) do bow or curtsey but that members of the PSOE (Labour Party) do a handshake.

Queen Sofia's ensemble - while pretty - next to Letizia's 'smart' presentation, does look like a set of pajamas. More like a beach cover-up and likely very in-keeping with where they were. I don't fault her one bit, it's just that as I scanned more and more pictures of the three of them, her clothes stood out in that way. As always with such it likely looked much nicer in person (the camera doesn't always 'like' certain patterns). Anyway, it looks like it is a very comfortable outfit. I wonder if it is silk.

In the second picture down in the above link one can see another woman in something with a similar print pattern as Queen Sofia's ensemble.
