fanletizia, is this translated literally? I've never seen it written this way before and I'm actually impressed if there is no distinction between King and Queen in formal language (as opposed to Reina). Please let me know and thanks :)

In Portuguese/Spanish when referring to plural, we always use the plural of the masculine word (of course this doesn't apply if we're talking about women only). So in the case above it was "Los Reyes" and literally translated as "The Kings".

It was a dinner of gala in the Royal Palace, I believe that it is impossible that she was putting to sing there. It was a dinner of state, very established by protocol and formal, not a concert.

Rocio Jurado was invited with her husband to the dinner by the Embassy of Colombia. Her husband Ortega Cano is a famous bullfighter there, both have a house in Cartagena de Indias , and the boy and the girl that they adopted were Colombian.

What is next for the King and Queen when they come back from Norway? Are they heading to Mallorca for a much-needed break?

The Casa Real website doesn't show any activities for them in the upcoming days.

King grants Toisón of Gold to Bhumibol of Thailand

The King has granted the Toisón of Gold, the most prestigious dynastic order of the world, to the King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, who these days celebrates sixty anniversary of his enthronement, which turns him into the most veteran monarch of the planet.

The Ministers' Council, assembled today in the Palace of The Moncloa, approved the royal decree for which don Juan Carlos grants this important decoration to the King of Thailand.

Dona Sofía will travel on Sunday to Bangkok to be present at the commemorative acts of this efeméride, which have confirmed their presence representatives of all the Royal Houses of the world.

Last February, the Kings realized a visit of State to the Kingdom of Thailand, moment of that they took advantage to transmit personally his congratulation to the King Bhumibol in his six decades in the throne.
