Was you INDEED there, Crisiñaki? I'm jealous of you, girly! I'm jealous for two main reasons: one is that I admire Infanta Cristina so much, as a woman and as a Royal. I also like her husband and family...And the other reason is that one of my favorite painter is Salvador Dalí...(After Goya, of course...I'm a great fan of XVIII Century! ).

My congrats to you, Crisiñaki!

Vanesa.

Your are very lucky because the Dukes of Palm are absolutly fantastic!
I imagine you were invited because you are so near of the circle of Spain residents in London or in a branch of cultural activity because as I can know, for instance in France, it's not very easy if you don't belong of diplomatic or cultural world to assist at such event.

I'm not a big fan of it either.

Crisiñaki, how many times have you seen them? I totally envy you. I wish I could see this awesome couple in person, especially with the little ones.

Iñaki cut his hair a little and I'm not crazy about Cristina's hair but she looked great as always!

The exposition is at the fourth level of the Tate Modern in London, it shows the close relationship Spanish Painter Salvador Dali had with some legendary movie directors like Disney or Hitchcock, I recommend anyone to go there

Now, the important stuff (at least for us)

The exposition opened today (1st June) for everyone, but only those who had the invitation could get in there

We were told to be there about an hour before everything starts because of security issues, we were checked, no cameras/mobiles/etc allowed and then we had to wait in the second level for them, the Dukes arrived in time and then we could get up (I didn't see them coming, I guess they entered for a different door than the one we entered) to the fourth level

Once we arrived at the fourth level we had to go through another security check before we were cleared to get in, the Dukes were already there with the two curators who were explaining the meaning of the paintings and their relationship with some very famous movie scenes; Roy Disney (Walt's nephew and former Disney chairman) was also there but he greeted the Dukes and left

They spent about 1 hour watching the expo and talking about the paintings, I saw a really nice moment there:

Cristina was watching a painting closely (some kind of detail on a clock for what I know) and told Iñaki to look, he put his chin on her shoulder and looked, it was really nice to watch (and one of those moments you would have wanted a camera but didn't) and in that moment they were like in their own little world

Then, we went up to the 7th level, to something called the East Room, where conferences are made, she gave the speech (in an excellent english BTW), the curators talked for a while and then it was a dinner planned but we couldn't stay so we left :(

It was a really good afternoon for two reasons: I got to see the expo when there wasn't much public around (better, no noise, no nuisance) and because it was the 5th time I saw the Dukes of Palma, the second in London

This is like the super short version of what happened, but if I would have written it as soon as I got from the gallery but hubby convinced me not to, imagine, I would have written like 10 pages or something like that!

I hope all of you can get the chance to meet your favourite royals

I can easily imagine how much you would have written at that moment, I'm sure everyone in a similar sitution would have done so, and even if you had, we would have enjoyed it as much as your short report. You made it possible to give us a little feeling of having been there as well. Thanks a lot for that, dear Cris!

Thanks for all the great pics! It's great to see the two cousins and all their beautiful kids together. Too bad the rest of the SRF wasn't around to celebrate with either Cristina or Irene.
