It's State Visit time for the Spanish royal couple again! This time they headed to Sweden where they're being hosted by King Carl XIV Gustav and Queen Silvia.
The royal couple was welcomed by their hosts in the Royal Mews before heading on a short carriage trip to the Royal Palace where they were joined by the rest of the Bernadottes.
Queen Silvia wore one of her favourite brooches for daytime events - a gem-set butterfly and a pair of pearl button earrings with ruby bead drops.
Once at the palace and without the coat, we found out that theQueen was wearing another of her treadmark jewels - a two row necklace of large antique pearls with a large clasp. rumour has it that it belonged to the King's mother, who wore it as a sautoir (I've never seen images to prove it). HM also had another jewel hidden under the coat - Queen Josefina's pearl and ruby floral brooch.
Queen Letizia wore a modern pair of earrings with an orange/champagne-coloured drop:
Tonight the Royal Couple is hosting a State Banquet for their guests and we're bound to see a ton of sparkling tiaras and other goodies!
I suspect both queens will bring out their big guns for the state banquet, and am looking forward to the bling pics!
