I fully agree! I love these deep scandinavian curtseys or the one done by Theresa May today when meeting the Queen!
I guess Camilla can´t manage to go down much deeper anymore. She´s way not that fit like her in-laws used to be at her age, or her husband!

They've arrived at the Palace of Westminster. See post 457 or 459 for live coverage of Felipe's speech. The Sky News Helicopter has followed them all the way from Clarence House.

Edit: The PM and Jeremy Corbyn is of course present for the speech.

Edit: They are walking in now.

Edit: John Bercow (the Speaker of the House of Commons) is now speaking.

I agree! With exception of US, Chinese and the Japanese/Irish state visits, I've never seen anything like this.

It is absolutely superb coverage. Live on both the BBC and Sky now. I can't wait for the State Banquet tonight! I wasn't expecting anywhere near this level of coverage.

A second thought! His Majesty's address to parliament is very good, but awfully long!

It would be nice to see Filipe and Letizia back the UK though in 2018 to attend though

Well, both the King of Norway as well as Queen Margrethe have been formally installed in Windsor. So a formal installation for Félipe nexr year is as good as certain!

I'm very surprised/pleased about it, and we don't see anything like this for state visits in other countries, not even in Norway/Denmark.

Yes, the speeches were marvelous. Very graceful speeches from the Lord Speaker and the House Speaker too.

I'm impressed by the turn out of Windsors for this state visit. I am also impressed at how well Philip looks.

For all the coverage, not one person in my workplace today mentioned it. Media is massively over-estimating the interest in this from what I can see. We care about Wimbledon at this time of year, or the Premier League transfer market! We don't care about 2 powerless heads of state who can change nothing about the world we live in!

Felipe and Letizia could walk down Oxford Street and not be bothered because 95% of people wouldn't know who they were!
