The RF arrived at the palace at another entry, the guards fire 21 cannon shots to salute the king.

Letizia in black & white.

Felipe and his family has arrived.
I would've hoped for a more colored outfit on Letizia but nevertheless black and whit evan be very classic.

Has the King & Queen arrived?

Fürstin Taxis 06-18-2014 11:51 AM

^The Queen was with them

Princess Letizia repeats the dress of Cervantes lunch, I think Queen Sofia also repeats suit.

Leonor and Sofia look a bit overwhelmed..
Btw, Letizia's wink..

dazzling 06-18-2014 12:04 PM

Letizia looks very tense, I don't blame her.
The girls look adorable!

The man reading the speech of JC has a word of graditude to the Queen.

I noticed the wink of Letizia to her daughters too, Charlotte Aster.

The king signed, received a kiss from his wife and hugged his son. Felipe and JC changed seats. A long applause and Leonor and Sofia give their grandfather a kiss.

I just spotted Queen Anne Marie and the duke and duchess of Calabria.

It's so sad! King Juan is so emotional.
I liked how he moved over so Felipe can take his seat.

Charlotte_Aster 06-18-2014 12:18 PM

I jumped on my seat as Juan Carlos stumbled. He really looks frail.

ladongas 06-18-2014 12:18 PM

Surely he has been the most consequential monarch of the last half century. What a man.
