Probably yes, though that goes Leonor I do not see it so clear, it is a short trip and they can go and return in the day without need from which the girl travels, a trip with a baby always is a mess. If Letizia rejoins in February I believe that the normal thing would be that she travels to Portugal and Chile, in addition, it is necessary to bear in mind, that the Kings support very good relations with Jorge Sampaio and Ricardo Lagos; besides the political link there seems to be a good friendship.

i never heard, felipe had come to any swearing-in ceremony of the Portuguese president in my life. I know that he had some visits in Lisbon and he had visited the president once.
The Prince only attended it for the first mandate of Jorge Sampaio (in 1996). He didn't come in 2001, because it was merely a prolongation of the first mandate and, before that, he was still very young and still a student (the first election of Mário Soares was in 1986).

i wonder the next time he make a state visit to spain, how the sash would look on the spanish royals.. it would be interesting.
anyhow, is it common for latin american countries to make a state visit to spain, or is it just an official visit?
