I agree...very impressive schedule for the Royal Couple. (What I would do to see the Danish CPC have this type of visit!! Denmark is the only country lately to NOT have any type of big visit since things opened up again! ). But I digress.....it looks like there will be alot of royal news to look forward to from Madrid next week.

No tiaras either in the UK at official dinners during summits of that kind, so I see no reason why it should be different in Spain.

They are only the crown prince couple and not the king and queen. In terms of number of activities they had a far more impressive schedule earlier this week.

On topic, good to see the king and queen are taking their hosting duties seriously. Makes me think about a similar even in the Netherlands several years ago with Willem-Alexander and Máxima as hosts - which included a dinner at Huis ten Bosch.

Well, if this summit had taken place in Denmark, I can pretty much guarantee that it would be the CP Couple handling the duties listed here for the Spanish Royal couple, as evidenced by their roles in previous State Visits to Denmark. But again, I will digress.

On topic, it will be a busy week next week at this very important summit during this crucial time. I look forward to seeing Queen Letizia with our First Lady, Dr. Biden.

The Palacio Real de Madrid is such a stunning setting for the event.

I wonder in which language they were speaking. Letizia is not known to be a good linguist and I think that's appalling.

This seems to be a myth. Letizia has already been seen chatting with several important international figures. I think she must speak good English.

Is Dr. Biden known to speak any other languages, or would that be less appalling?

Letizia lived and worked in the US for an extended period and since we don't see an interpreter around, I'm going to assume that her English, while clearly accented, was up to semi-diplomatic purposes today.

I heard Letizia speaking English before and it sounded pretty good to me. As Prinsara said, as a journalist, she lived and worked in the US.

I believe Dr. Jill Biden doesn't speak Spanish though.

Why so? The Duchess of Cambridge speaks nothing except English fluently, and is the only would-be Consort in Europe who is limited to one language.

Some would call that "appalling".

Anyway Letizia's English has improved vastly since her marriage. Her English language skills are great.

Dr. Biden is an accomplished woman, but the less said about her Spanish language skills the better.

The last truly multi-lingual First Lady the USA had was Jacqueline Kennedy, which as an American is disappointing to admit.

I have to wonder why there still are those programs for spouses visiting museums and children while the men are talking big business or even about war...
I remember that Letizia was shown the vegetable garden of the White House by Michelle O while Felipe was received by Barack Obama...
Most of these women have an independent career these days still are pressed into the accessory role. Our former first husband Prof Joachim Sauer, a chemist with an impressive world wide reputation hated these events and hardly participated... I wonder what the wives and girlfriends are still doing at such a summit in 2022, tagging along in the shadow of the husbands, so much talk about women and independence and this is ad absurdum.

Because their independent careers have nothing to do with coming along on diplomatic trips, regardless of gender. If they don't like the cultural activities or the socializing or the fancy dinners they can just stay home, like Merkel's husband.

Also, frequently, the spouses have given up their independent careers for their political partner's ambitions, or even non-political ones, like Letizia. Dr. Biden is the first First Lady to have a regular paying job outside the White House.

The question is why they have to come along on diplomatic trips, something that Prof. Sauer never understood.

And there is certainly a difference between a royal consort position for life or a spouse of an elected president who will do the job for a limited time only.
