No there are no Ladies in Waiting in Spain, Belgium (I think maybe Queen Fabiola still has one?) and Norway (Princess Astrid still has one), When the royals go on an official visit they are always accompanied by someone, it can be a secretary, an assistant, an aide de camp, a military person or someone that works at the court. When the go on longer trips the recquiers change of clothes and new hairdoes, then they can bring one or more person to help them with that. Ladies in Waiting dont do hair and makeup, the are more like a glorified assistant, often from noble circles, can be recognised by a blue ribbon on their shoulder, their job is really the same as if the royal woman brings an assistant, help with flowers, hold bags, makesure that the time scheduel is kep etc.ec.

Ladies-in-Waiting are basically PA's (Personal Assistants) in today's time.
Denmark still has Lady-in-Waitings. i know that Princesses Mary & Alexandra each have one.

From Las Provincias:
http://servicios.lasprovincias.es/va...L-VAL-005.html

Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will travel to Valencia next Thursday, in order to inaugurate the Superior Center of High Technology for Biomedical investigation. After the act, they will go to the city council, to enjoy the mascletà (pyrotechnic show) of Ricardo Caballer.

The Princes were invited last year and even confirmed their attendance to Las Fallas, but with the attacks of 11-M, they suspended the visit to Valencia. The Valencians will now enjoy their presence, as no member of the Royal Family has attended Las Fallas for years.

Every year, the City council sends an official invitation to the Royal House, and this year the Princes will honour them with their presence at Las Fallas 2005.

After the mascletà, the Princes will attend the reception that always takes place at the municipal headquarters.



Here is a couple of photo from previous editions of these popular festivities:

Thanks for the article and pictures Elsa! It seems like they will have a good time. It seems like it will be a more relaxed atmosphere which they seem to like.

During the course of the "mascletà", they will take a bath of multitudes. Yet, the visit is marked by strict security measures. In fact, throughout the day, the access to the City Council of Valencia will not be allowed and the media will be placed in a tribune specifically constructed for the effect.



Next week, the Princes shall travel to Japan, in order to attend the universal fair of Aichi.
