Queen Letizia's Orders
 
i was trying to find out a list of all the foreign orders letizia has been awarded. i identified:
Order of Carlos III, Spain
Ordre National Du Mérite, France
Orden del Libertador San Martin, Argentina
Orden Manuel José Hurtado, Panama



however, i was having difficulty recognizing some of the others:

what's this order that letizia is wearing? it must be a mexican order as it was worn during a state visit by mexico.
Una cena de gala en en el Palacio Real en honor del presidente mexicano

i was also having difficulty identifying the sashes sofia and letizia are wearing here (which is from latvia), here from hungary (i thought it was the holy cross) and here from philippines.

it would be nice to have a full record of all the orders she has as the royal house website doesn't have it.

Has Letizia received any prices in her life as journalist?

Yes. She received the "Larra" Award, awarded by the Madrid Press Association to the most distinguished young journalist of the year.
Here you can see a photo:

Letizia was given Estonian order, Maarjamaa Risti I klassi teenetemärk (The Order of the Cross of Terra Mariana), in July 2007.

An Ard Ri 05-22-2013 04:13 PM

I noticed that at the recent Dutch Invesiture Ceremony that Letizia has no Dutch orders,maybe this is something that she will recieve from a future Dutch State Visit to Spain by the new King and Queen.

An Ard Ri 01-04-2015 03:35 PM

H.M.Queen Letizia received the Grand Cross of the Order of the Crown from the Netherlands on the 15th of October 2014.

H.M.Queen Letizia of Spain was also awarded the Special Class of the Order of Muhammad from Morocco on the 14th of July 2014.

Duc_et_Pair 01-04-2015 03:59 PM

It seems that it was a complete surprise for King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia that King Willem-Alexander suddenly showed her the Court Decree signed by him and the cassette with the decorations of a Lady Grand-Cross in the Crown Order (House of Orange Order).

On this picture you see Crown Princess Masako with the same Order.

that's a pretty "minor" order for a Queen Consort. I wonder if she'll receive the Netherlands Lion order if they have a Spanish-Dutch State Visit.

An Ard Ri 01-04-2015 04:49 PM

Yes we were all thinking that but perhaps they will wait until a formal State Visit?

Duc_et_Pair 01-05-2015 03:17 AM

We can be sure about that. A State Visit is the highest protocollary event between two states and that is the time to confer the Order of Carlos III on King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima and to bestow the Order of the Netherlands Lion to King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia.

:)

The Order bestowed on Queen Letizia is a dynastic order of the House Orange. This means it was a purely personal decision by King Willem-Alexander, a sign of personal appreciation, esteem and respect for the Queen.

An Ard Ri 09-24-2015 06:08 AM

Duc_et_Pair 09-24-2015 06:54 AM

Interesting that the Queen of Spain has only one foreign royal order. It was given -by surprise- to Queen Letizia (October 2014, introduction visit to The Hague). As the Crown Order (in the Order of the House of Orange) is a royal prerogative without ministerial influence, it is seen as a public token of approval and esteem by King Willem-Alexander towards Doña Letizia.

An Ard Ri 09-24-2015 07:06 AM

I'm sure the balance will even out with incoming and outgoing State Visits and perhaps introductory visits to the UK/ Norway/Sweden/Monaco?

No wonder as there where no incoming State Visits from foreign monarchs to Spain in the time between her Wedding and the abdication of King Juan Carlos. As far as i remember Prince Daniel of Sweden has now 5 years after his marriage also no Order from a foreign Monarchy

An Ard Ri 09-24-2015 08:21 AM

I think there was 1 from Dubai maybe in 2011?

The difference between Queen Letizia and Queen Máxima is remarkable but it was thanks to Queen Beatrix' activistic policy (ever and always include the Prince of Orange and his spouse) that she has a load of royal Orders.

Belgium: Grand Cross of the Order of the Crown (20 June 2006)
Luxembourg: Grand Cross of the Order of Adolphe of Nassau (24 April 2006)
Norway: Grand Cross of the Order of St. Olav (2 October 2013)
Oman: Member 1st Class of the Order of Sultan Qaboos (10 January 2012)
Spain: Dame Grand Cross of the Order of Isabella the Catholic (19 October 2001)
Sweden: Commander Grand Cross of the Order of the Polar Star (2010)
UAE: Member 1st Class of the Union Order (9 January 2012)
Japan: Grand Cordon of the Order of the Precious Crown (29 October 2014)
Denmark: Knight of the Order of the Elephant (17 March 2015)
Brunei: Senior of the Most Esteemed Family Order of Brunei (21 Januaruy 2013)

I think that the then Prince of Orange and Pricness Máxima accompanied Queen Beratrix on a lot of State Visits abroad had also to with the fact that Prince Claus was not alive anynmore.

eya 09-24-2015 10:45 AM

As Stefan said the Queen Maxima accompanied the Queen Beatrice to many trips. So there is no comparison between the two Queens in this regard.
Just wondering if Letizia made introduction trips in Belgium and Luxembourg why not given the royal order as happen in the netherlands? (Duc_et_pair say it was surprise that)

because it's very rare that such things happen. Usually, you only receive an order if you participate in a State Visit complete with gala. It's very rare, as far as I know, to be given an order simply on a short visit.

The top royal orders are normally awarded to visiting monarchs on official state visits, aren't they ? Letizia has been queen for little over an year now and hasn't made many state visits yet.

Neither King Willem Alexander nor King Felipe VI have been made Knights of the Garter yet, although King Juan Carlos and Princess Beatrix were previously inducted into the order. On the other hand, neither King Philippe nor his father, King Albert II, are Knights of the Garter, although King Baudouin was made a Stranger Knight when he visited the UK, I believe, in 1963.

I wonder if Queen Elizabeth II would refuse to award orders to any of the younger European monarchs who ascended the throne by abdication while their predecessors are still alive. That wouldn't make sense as, in the past, Queen Beatrix for example became a Lady Companion of the Garter while Princess Juliana was still alive.

I think the reason that King Albert II. has not received the Order of the Garter has to do with the fact that there was nor british/belgian State Visit during his reign.

PrincessofEurope 01-21-2016 01:21 PM

Even with the upcoming state visit to the UK in March i don't see Letizia getting a British order even a minor one - i don't recall Queen Sofia with one?
Felipe already has the Royal Victoria Order so i wonder will QE upgrade to a higher order now he is King

Rudolph 01-21-2016 01:51 PM

Felipe will almost certainly receive the Order of the Garter from Her Majesty and Letizia may receive the RVO although I don't think Queen Sofia was given it.

You never know with Queen Elizabeth II

Most likely Letizia will not get a british Order. Queen Sofia has none and neither have Queens Silvia and Sonja.

Duc_et_Pair 01-21-2016 01:59 PM

That has to do with the British policy not to decorate female royal spouses. Prince Hendrik of the Netherlands, Prince Félix of Luxembourg, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, Prince Henrik of Denmark and Prince Claus of the Netherlands all got British decorations.

Queen Sonja of Norway, Queen Silvia of Sweden, Queen Fabiola of the Belgians, Grand-Duchess María Teresa of Luxembourg, etc.: nope... That is also the answer why Diana or Camilla's foreign orders are so rare. Queen Juliana and Queen Beatrix were not so petty. During their Reigns ladies as Queen Elizabeth (QETQM), The Princess Margaret, The Princess Anne, The Princess of Wales, Princess Alice of Athlone, Princess Alice of Gloucester, Princess Marina of Kent, all received a visible token of esteem and respect by the Dutch monarch, the latter not feeling hindranced by reciprocity-feelings of 'revenge' in their royal will and pleasure.

As long as the British Queen keeps her policy towards female spouses, Doña Letizia will remain without a British Order.

Usally he will get a lower Order first: the RVO or the Royal Victorian Chain and then in a couple of years will get the Garter.

Rudolph 01-21-2016 02:09 PM

Felipe received the RVO in 1988

princess gertrude 01-21-2016 04:34 PM

I believe that Felipe will recieve the Order of the Garter, maybe not this year, but soon. Letizia, will not recieve an order from the British Empire, much like her predecesors before her.

Well, likely not from Elizabeth II. But from Charles? That belongs in the when he is king thread, but it will be interesting to see his take on the mutual sharing of orders.

Dman 01-21-2016 08:13 PM

The spouses should receive orders from The Queen, and the King of Spain should give Camilla and Cambridge's orders.

wow, i didn't know this - what a shame for letizia, as for all other female spouses. i'd understand it if the men spouses don't receive it too (after all, that's all they are, the spouses...), but to give it to the men and not the women seems unfair. i guess it was OK in prior times for the queen to do so, and now, for consistency, she has kept her approach, but i imagine this will change with charles.

It might be the case that female spouses have fewer decorations, but i think the story around it is Duc-et-Pair's opinion rather than fact....

But that doe not change the fact that Prince Henrik has the Royal Victorian Order and Queens Silvia, Sonja and Solfia don't have it. Queen Paola also has no british order but there was not State Visit between Belgium and the UK during her husbands reign.

As the State Visit is in March it will be Elizabeth II. who gives out Orders or not. But certainly why can't know what will hapen at future State Visits between the 2 countries once there is a King Charles.

An Ard Ri 07-27-2017 07:18 AM

Queen Letizia did receive the Grand Cordon (Paulwonia) of the Order of the Precious Crown from Japan but nothing as expected from the UK.

Mbruno 07-27-2017 07:28 AM

Queen Letizia has the Spanish Order of Charles III ( (Carlos III in Spanish), but I believe she hasn't received the collar of the order yet, unlike her mother-in-law. I wonder why.

I also wonder why queen consorts of Spain don't receive the Order of the Golden Fleece. As far as I know, only the Princess of Asturias currently has it in the family besides, of course, the King and his father.

I think i read once that Queen Sofia got it for her 50th birthday so she also hadn't it from early on.

My guess is the same about why Letizia hasn't been made Knight Grand Cross with Collar of the Order of Charles III

But as for the Order of the Golden Fleece, consorts (Spanish or foreign) and even spouses of foreign royalty will not receive the Order of the Golden Fleece, it is only awarded to rulers and Princes and Princesses in their own right but not all of them as was done before in the 19th century and previously, so very limited people will be Knights, but many are expected, for example.

Denmark: Crown Prince Frederick and Prince Christian

Sweden: Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle

Norway: Crown Prince Haakon and Princess Ingrid-Alexandra

The Netherlands: King William-Alexander and Princess Catharina-Amalia

Belgium: King Phillipe and Princess Elisabeth

United Kingdom: Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George

Luxembourg: Prince Guillaime, Prince Felix and Princess Amalia (the latter most probably if Guilliame doesn't have children)
