King Felipe VI, Queen Letizia and their two daughters, the Princess of Asturias and Infanta Sofía, were present for the homage to the Spanish national flag and the military parade that followed. A number of government officials attended alongside the royal family, including Prime Minster Mariano Rajoy.

Around 1,500 guests from a variety of sectors – government, the diplomatic corps, outstanding athletes and winners of the Prince of Asturias Awards among others – then attended a reception at the Royal Palace, where they were greeted by the King and Queen in the Throne Room.

The Queen wore a peacock green coat dress designed by Felipe Varela, which had a tweed front and plain back. The two Infantas wore printed dresses with their hair neatly styled in braids.
