Spanish King & Queen Visit the Netherlands
The King and Queen of Spain paid an introductory visit to their Dutch counterparts today, visiting The Hague.
King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima welcomed King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia at Noordeinde Palace, where the two couples greeted each other with friendly hugs and kisses. Obligatory photos were taken, ahead of a private lunch.
In the afternoon, King Felipe and Queen Letizia went on to pay a visit to the Dutch Senate and House of Representatives. This was followed by a meeting with Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
Both Queens were dressed in manners that reflect their own personal taste. Queen Máxima’s brown peplum number suspected to be Natan paired with a mammoth necklace and hat mirrored her larger-than-life personality and style (there is never a ‘less-is-more’ mentality with the Dutch Queen), while Queen Letizia continued her usual simple, yet elegant run in a vibrant red sheath dress, with embroidered detailing on the skirt.
This visit is the fifth introductory visit the Spanish monarch and his wife have paid since they came to the throne in June. They have already visited France, Portugal, the Vatican and Morocco; and are expected to visit Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy in the coming months.Filed under Spain, The Netherlands
