Thanks for picures.
The Queen looks fantastic. I don't like Letizias outfit, but her herstyle is beautiful.

Los Reyes inauguran hoy la ampliación del Museo del Prado. Ideal

The Kings inaugurate today the extension of the Prado Museum

The Kings inaugurate today the major extension of the history of the Prado Museum, which opens new rooms with an exhibition dedicated to the big Spanish teachers of the 19th century.

The act of inauguration, which will begin at 12:25, will rely on in addition the assistance of the Princes of Asturias, as well as of the prime minister, the first vice-president of the Executive, the minister of Culture, the chairwoman of the Community of Madrid, the mayor of the capital and the president of the PP, between others.

I have to say that I don´t like the dress,but I love the jakect and her hair.
On the whole she looks fabulous. Original hairdo!
I think Queen Sofia dress is by Oscar de la Renta, isn´t it?

Wow, Queen Sofia looks S-P-E-C-T-A-C-U-L-A-R Perfect perfect outfit.
Letizia has a very nice hairdo and I like the jacket but not the combination. Overall it looks boring and uninspired; too black and find her black open toe plateau sandals not the best choice for this event. The dress has the usual Varela cheap fabric and I don't like the pregnancy style on a non-pregnant woman (in general - unless it's a fun dress worn on holiday). Of course Varela likes the pregnancy style because it helps to hide his unability to design a well fitted piece of clothing

ABC.es: cultura - arte - El Prado se vistió de largo

The Prado dressed of gala to celebrate the major extension of its history

The best celebrations are in the habit of beginning on eve. Because of it, the Casón del Buan Retiro dressed last night of gala to shelter a macrodinner of show at which almost the whole Royal Family was present on the occasion of the most important extension - that will be inaugurated today - to that the Prado Museum has surrendered in its two hundred years of history.

In only twelve hours, Their Majesties the Kings and Their Royal Highnesses the Princes of Asturias will move in two occasions from the Palace of The Operetta to the Prado Museum - the first one last night and the second one, this midday - to celebrate the extension of this art gallery, which started by sheltering precisely the artistic collections of the Royal Family.

The top looks slightly different in fabric but I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same since Letizia tends to buy at least her shoes in dozens - same pair but different colours. Maybe Varela does a buy one get one free offer to keep Letizia as his most appreciated customer / advertising ad.

the queen wore that lovely gown at the queen sofia spanish institute in USA. i simply adore it. she looks superb in it. i quite liked letizia's outfit as well...

what i didn't like was sonsoles espinosa, first lady. simply ridiculous in her outfit and she should learn you don't place your elbows on the table.

Many thanks for the link and these pics lula. Tita Thyssen is a true overkill, the living proof that one can be superrich but tasteless when chosing an outfit. She used to do much better and has pulled off very elegant outfits in the past. I hope she does not become a bitter old woman now after her only son married a spouse she does not accept and therefore stayed away from the wedding, despite a grandchild being on the way.
Sonsoles dress looks odd as if one part is being worn in a wrong way or at the wrong part of the shoulder.

I like the embroidered beads, tassels that are hanging from the top and are outlined because of the light colour of the skirt of Sofia.

Letizia does not look good this time, because she is so skinny in long black she can take on a -like appearance
