Pictures from Gettyimages. On the last picture, notice that, one more time, Felipe, Letizia, The King and The Queen use coordinated outfits.
Felipe's tie matches Queen Sofia's outfit, while King JC's tie matches Letizia's. This is the second or third time it has happened and I think it's really cute.
Iñaki's tie also matches Cristina's outfit.
You have a very good eye! I hadn't noticed that until you pointed it out. Elena's outfit also seems to match with those of her children, as well as Cristina's outfit (and Inaki's tie). Too bad Jamie doesn't co-ordinate with the other members of the royal family. Wonder if this was planned?
If you hadn't suggested that with the outfits, I wouldn't have noticed it either. Thanks Anna I think it is a really nice gesture too.
The photos are great. I like to see the little children with their family.
