What a difference with the warm Guests welcome by the King of Spain than yesterday by the King of Sweden.
It is fine that the swedish Royals did attend.

Lady Finn , Did you recognize the lady with a pink Dress who curtseys yesterday 4 times?

These are two different kind of events. Yesterday was the official State Banquet, where the Swedish Royal Court's Grand Master of Ceremonies Ambassador Johan Molander announced solemnly every guest. And Margareta Thorgren, the director of the Press department of the Swedish Royal Court, had stressed out the social distancing at the state visit before the visit began.

The royal court about the second day:
Statsbesöket från Spanien fortsätter - Sveriges Kungahus
Translation

Stig Kvarnryd and the company Flagghuset Europa AB in Åkersberga have had busy days before the Spanish state visit to Sweden.
- We are one of the few who manufacture flags in Sweden today. The flag house dates from the end of the 19th century with its own flag production. Our seamstresses have great professional experience to be able to produce flags before state visits. The largest flags measure 7 × 5 meters or 35 sqm. Our fitters set up 42 flagpoles around the palace during state visits and then take when the visit is complete, says Stig Kvarnryd.
Among other things, a seven meter large Spanish flag has been manufactured plus the installation of flagpoles around the Royal Palace.

I wonder why the Spaniards didn't have a black-tie return event at the embassy instead of this official reception.

Probably because of limited time, as they are going home tonight.

This state visit was originally planned for September last year, and inteded to be a 3-day visit wich would have seen the 2 royal couples visit a different swedish city on day 3...

However due to Covid the visit was both delayed and shortened (according to the official explanation - but it is interesting that the German state visit this September was a 3 day visit anyway)...

They had time to arrive 1 day before the official Start of the State Visit. Wonder why this part was not incluided in the state Visit so they could have had the Welcome Ceremony and State Banquet on Tuesday afternoon/evening.

Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia received the Order of Merit of Spain.
Felipe and Letizia stayed at a hotel in Stockholm, but I don't remember the name.

The King and Queen stayed at Grand Hotel. It's the poshest hotel in Sweden and is situated across the water from the Royal palace. It's often used by the Court to house guests that aren't staying at the palace.

The Royal Palace in Stockholm is one of Europe's largest palaces, with some 1400 rooms spread over three floors. It baffles me no guests' appartements were available in that mammoth building.

The guest rooms at the Palace were being renovated, but my understanding from what the Swedish members of the forum said was that the renovation had already been completed.

Imagine 500 (!) rooms are emptied because of renovations. It still leaves 900 (!) rooms to house Don Felipe and Doña Letizia. Imagine a B&B or a gîte with 900 rooms...
