It looks so out of place, people curtsying to girls aged 9 and 11 years. Must be some die hard monarchists among the guests.

Curtsying is a custom that is still observed in the Spanish court. As HRHs, it is perfectly appropriate that Leonor and Sofia should be curtsied to.

Letizia did look tense but that could have been nerves and I noticed there was no warmth/smile/chit chat with the Prime Minister upon meeting him,this is something that comes natural to queen Sofia.

Queen Sofia is the best actress I've ever seen in that respect, in public she would have warm small talk with her worst enemy and you wouldn't notice.

The footage is really awkward and amateur. They should learn how to present it. The royals should be focussed only during the key moments.. Not their off-time. Maybe they can learn a thing or two from the British or Danish Opening, when to focus on whom and when not to..
BTW is it necessary to bring such young girls? It is also a distraction for the K&Q..making sure all the time the girls are OK..
