Most royals are keen on doing these kinds of activities. From bullfighting in Spain, hunting in England and Denmark, etc. I think they derive fun/pleasure in doing that.

Were the acts done simultaneously? Looks like they have a lot for a single day. Nevertheless, they're impressive in showing interest to these kinds of research.

Bullfight is about tradition and a countries' identity and so is monarchy. It somehow suits In other countries it's hunting, jump racing etc that have been supported by the upper class or monarchy for many years or centuries and have become subject of controversy every now and then. Even if I don't like it I try to respect it.

Thanks to everyone who was able to submit photos of this couple. I loved the white suit on Letizia. She looked wonderful in it with the pink/mauve color close to her face for brightness. They certainly did a lot in one day! From the photos, people seem to really enjoy being with them and are happy to have them join their event.

They both look very relaxed and seemed to enjoy themselves. Question, is there a dress code for those attending a bullfight? It seems that they are pretty dressed up for a sporting event and I didn't know if customs were different? Here in the US, we are pretty casual at out sporting events and I was just curious about in Spain. Thanks in advance for any help with the question.
