Queen Sofia in black, not bad but not liking the belt of the dress. Letizia looked nice but personally its not a state visit dress. Sheikha Mozah looked lovely. Pity Christina was not there, any reason for it?

Anyone realized that Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas were attending the state dinner :biggrin: see pictures here

The Infanta Cristina had another engagement I believe,Lula posted photos yesterday.

I'm glad we saw an Infanta during a State Visit even if it was only for an official Lunch,it breaks the monotonous rut of just having The King,Queen,Prince & Princess which has become very boring imo.

Letizia looked stunning. Beautiful dress and elegant and sofisticated hair and make-up. In the lunch she looked ok . IMO Mozah was over dressed (she often is) for a midd day meeting. And I don't understand why she greets everyone with her sunglasses on. It's common sense to take off your sunglasses when you talk face to face with somebody.
In the gala Mozah was much better, very elegant and according with the event.
Queen Sofia ...Queen head to toe. Nice to see Cristina attending but why not Elena too?

Spain's Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero (R) shakes hand with the Emir of the State of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani at Moncloa palace in Madrid on April 26, 2011. The emir of Qatar arrived in Madrid on April, 25, 2010 on a visit to boost economic ties between the oil-rich Gulf state and Spain, which is seeking new investments to shore up its battered economy.

I'm completely surprised and disappointed by the lack of tiaras, and I don't understand the consideration for the Sheika not wearing a tiara. Firstly Sheikha Mozah has necklaces which can easily outbling an everage tiara (see those gigantic diamonds she wore in GB lately). Secondly tiaras are also usually worn at state banquetts for Presidents, when they, or their wives, won't wear tiaras.
To me it seems that the SRF is deciding to go more and more low key.:sad: And I can't say that I like that.

The fact I think Sheikha Mozah does not wear a tiara is that it will clash with her headscarf. She did not wear a tiara also on the state visit to Britain as well.

Did any members of the British Royal Family wear tiaras during that visit?

Letizia looked 'out of place' so to speak at the lunch,her choice of outfit was terrible & not all befitting the occassion.

No she did not wear a tiara in Britain. But I meant to say that in GB she wore a stunning diamond necklace which was much more eye-catching than an 'average' tiara would be.
Anyway, Sheikha Mozah always looks spectalur and very elegant.
Imo it is a good idea not to wear a tiara with a headscarf, as tiaras are simply designed to be worn with hair. I don't like the look of some Brunei ladies who do wear headscarfs with their tiaras. It just looks strange to me.
