Seems like the State dinner is white tie and long gowns

I don't expect a tiara on Queen Letizia anyway...

Given that the dress code was white tie after all, a tiara would have been appropriate.

Hard to tell from that video, but I think it's the brooch first worn for Queen Margrethe's birthday, and her old Cartier bracelet (also worn at the same event), plus her wedding earrings.

So hardly any surprises on the jewells department, apart from the strange new earrings early today

Nice that the king stated his speech in the city hall in Portuguese.

More pictures and a video from this morning:
Reis de Espanha iniciaram, no Porto, Visita de Estado a Portugal - NOTÍCIAS - PRESIDENCIA.PT

F&L and the Portuguese President seem to have a very warm and close relationship. I like these pictures of Q. Letizia walking downstairs holding Pr. Rebelo de Sousa's arm:

this is proof that letizia can look queenly when she chooses to. i wish we saw her like this more often. the smile doesn't hurt either - most times she looks sad / annoyed to be doing the activities in her agenda but not today. clearly they have a strong connection with portugal.

Video and pics from the dinner:
Presidente da República ofereceu jantar de Estado em honra dos Reis de Espanha - NOTÍCIAS - PRESIDENCIA.PT

One can understand the popularity of the President of Portugal, that was a really nice speech, with a long Spanish part (I always envy the way Portuguese people learn and manage with Spanish, while I just can understand some Portuguese, though I would love to speak it! ). I liked how he mentioned Spanish writers Unamuno and Ortega y Gasset (those are the kind of details I always love) and at the end, he included Leonor and Sofia in the toast

The reception with the popular music was so colorful:

This is Carminho, a very popular fado singer:
Imagem Ampliada - Presidência da República Portuguesa
IIRIC, she was present to in the lunch of F&L introductory visit. I think I read back then that Letizia was a fan. It makes sense that she was invited to sing. The King and Queen looked enchanted with her

(In case you feel like a fado morning, some Carminho's music : )
