In Portuguese/Spanish when referring to plural, we always use the plural of the masculine word (of course this doesn't apply if we're talking about women only). So in the case above it was "Los Reyes" and literally translated as "The Kings".

It was a dinner of gala in the Royal Palace, I believe that it is impossible that she was putting to sing there. It was a dinner of state, very established by protocol and formal, not a concert.

Rocio Jurado was invited with her husband to the dinner by the Embassy of Colombia. Her husband Ortega Cano is a famous bullfighter there, both have a house in Cartagena de Indias , and the boy and the girl that they adopted were Colombian.

The handsignals Q Sofia makes in post #54 are extremely offensive in some parts of the world. In diplomatic training that is a signal that participants are told never to use even if it is accepted in their own culture. Surely an oversight on her part.

In Spain it is very habitual, that the attendees to the game say his bet of the result of the game, probably the queen not to be too much in favour of Spain, I imagine that they could stay in tie.
I do not believe that it is an offensive gesture, it is a stupidity

Well, trying to explain in a nice way so that I don't offend anyone, in Brazil this sign means that you're telling someone to go to not such a pleasant place, if you get what I mean:)

Really? Wow!... I never heard about that! Then it must be some signal specific of America, because we don't have anything of that here! :eek:

Here in Portugal, that gesture simply means that she was betting for a 0-0 result, at the end of the game!
...Cultural differences certainly are embarrassing (if not dangerous) sometimes!!

I'm sure Queen Sofia didn't know about that either!

I'm equally surprised by this, too. So maybe it is a Brazilian or South American gesture as I am unfamiliar with it in Canada, and as American and Canadian cultures are similar, I don't think that it's common in America either. To imply with a hand gesture that someone should go to a not very nice place, it's a different gesture here.

I would agree with Elsa that looking at the pictures before I saw the reply that it would imply to me that the score was zero/zero. It wouldn't imply to me something offensive.
