Just a Question for experts, King Felipe received the

Grand Cross of the Order of Merit for Distinguished Services, Queen Letizia already received it in 2015 but not Felipe, so why has Felipe received it so "late" and Letizia early? Or is it a different class?

It's a different class, he received the Special Grand Cross, queen Letizia the Grand Cross.

The King was in Paris yesterday. So apparently Letizia travelled in advance to Peru.

They usually fly together. For past visits there are photos of them getting off the plane together.

Maybe Felipe flew from Paris directly this time?

No they don't. Ususally there is a departure ceremony at Madrid airport and the Kings leave on official plane with delegations.

This time the Queen went alone on a commercial flight from Madrid and Felipe went directly from Paris after the events he had there re First WW.

Thanks all, that's what I seemed to remember, so clearly this was due to them coming from different locations. As it seems only Felipe will travel to Panama, I assume Letizia will be on another commercial flight for the trip back.

What an underwhelming visit, and very unbalanced, Felipe all over the place and Letizia not doing much except for Day 1, could have gone with Felipe on more events, Day 3 all done by Felipe alone, why call it State Visit in the first place when the whole set up is mainly a working visit for Felipe. What is the point in bringing the Queen, only for smiling and doing the wifey part, what a waste of money and time.

Yes I agree it was a wasted visit especially for Letizia and it was more like an Official/Working Visit.
