Letizias barbierosa kappa. And Princess Sofia’s shiny and deeply décolletéed silk jacket. Yes, what a royal glamor shock it was at lunch in Stockholm City Hall!

The entire Swedish-Spanish entourage was in place, which meant two queens, two kings, two princesses and two princes. Sofia and Carl Philip, however, had to wait for a while before the other royal limousines slipped in.
The state visit lunch is a long and appreciated tradition, and a chance for the royal family to showcase one of Stockholm’s most beautiful and well-known places.
The city of Stockholm is the host and the 70 guests got to enjoy a delicious three-course menu in the Golden Hall: Perch fillet with horseradish and smoked onion, herb-baked red deer with sherry vinegar cloud and “cared for summer strawberries” with lemon verbena and vanilla.
Spanish state visit: Crown Princess Victoria’s look
But while Victoria and Sofia had the morning off and got a chance to breathe a sigh of relief after the gala dinner yesterday, it was full blown from early morning for the queen duo Silvia and Letizia.
They started directly with a seminar at the castle on language, literature and translation as a bridge between cultures, something that especially seems to engage Queen Letizia. And Queen Silvia summed it up nicely in her speech:
– The literature reminds us that there is always more that unites us people than that separates us.
