Regarding the hotel: if i spy well, those umbrellas are from hotel 'ME london', so i suspect that is where felipe and letizia, and their committee, are staying for the first night.... (it is also part of a spanish chain of hotels, the melia chain, so definitely a possible hypothesis!)



a good choice right in central london and, apparently, with a rooftop lounge...

Re: the orders

Spanish orders are bestowed upon royal decrees and those appear in the third page (Otras disposiciones) of the daily Official Journal.
Today's Journal is out and there isn't any royal decree in it.

So now, as many of us had predicted, it's pretty safe to say that only Felipe will get a new order.

Generally the announcement of decorations in the General State Bulletin is done days before the visit, usually is on Friday coinciding with the Council of Ministers. On this occasion neither today nor the previous days has appeared anything.

Not even there are decorations for members of the Royal House or the British government ... so I guess that means there will be no British decorations, possibly with the exception of King Felipe. And that the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales can not receive decorations higher than they have.

I had to chuckle a bit about that. Leaving sunny, hot Madrid and arriving at cold, rainy London
The weather should be according to news a bit better.

I have a question: Normally state visits include returning invitations, like another banquet given by the guests or going to a concert etc.
The Guildhall banquet is an invitation of the City of London for the royal guests. Why isn´t a returning evernt not included here? Isn´t it, from a diplomatic point of view, unpolite towards the british royal family not to be invited as a gesture of thank-you for their hospitality - or, the other way round, unpolite towards the King and Queen of Spain not giving them the chance to host such an event?!

I have noticed that this is the case is most State Visits to the UK. I think the reason is that State Visits are npow usually only 3 days with the visiting guests leaving on the third day. And with the Guildhall Dinner on the second day there is no time for a return reception. At State Visit to other countries the return Event is usually on the second evening.

I know! State visits have been reduced mostly to three 3 days in the last 20 years or so. But in other countries st. visits also only last 3 days but still give the opportunity for a return banquet...I don´t know when they exactly ditched it, but the return dinner used to take place at the Dorchester or Claridge´s Hotel in London.

The weather looks much improved in London and there are nice sized crowds outside Buckingham Palace ahead of the arrival of the King and Queen of Spain.

I was right - the Queen and Felipe to use the open 1902 State Landau - first time HM has used it for a state visit since 2003.

The Royal Family‏ @RoyalFamily
The two Royal Families will then travel to Buckingham Palace by carriage – a tradition of every State Visit. #SpainStateVisit

This morning the staff at The Royal Mews have been busy preparing the horses and carriages for today's ceremony. #SpainStateVisit

The horses are harnessed - this year they will pull The Queen and King Felipe in the 1902 State Landau. #SpainStateVisit

Yes they do and the Duke in particular looks rather jovial!

My livefeed froze as they arrived and I mistook queen Letizia for the Duchess of Cambridge.
