The smiles of Felipe VI and Letizia on the 20th anniversary of their engagement: the Kings head to Denmark

Felipe VI and Letizia They said goodbye at the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas airport and They have headed to Denmark on a three-day state trip, from this Monday the 6th to Wednesday the 8th. The farewell with honors of the Kings took place at 10:45 this morning. Doña Letizia has chosen an oversized coat that she has combined with a pistachio green American jacket, black pants and boots. She has tied up her long hair in a bun to prevent the gusts of wind, at the time of the photo on the plane stairs, from messing up her hair. A very useful styling trick. This trip has coincided with the celebration of the 20th anniversary of her official engagement in the gardens of the El Pardo Palace.

The monarch and his wife visit Denmark after the invitation of Queen Margaret. Don Felipe maintains a close relationship with the 83-year-old monarch, sister of Ana María de Grecia, widow of Constantine and aunt of his Majesty. As a detail of the affection they have for each other, the affectionate video that the Kings sent to Margarita for her 80th birthday, in 2020, in the middle of the pandemic: “Hello Aunt Daisy! Dear Aunt Daisy…”Felipe VI greeted with affection.

The heir to the Danish Throne, Prince Frederick, and his wife, Mary Donaldson, They also maintain a very good relationship with our kings. The Dane and the Australian lawyer met at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. Don Felipe was present. The two married in May 2004. For Letizia, the Danish wedding also marked her official introduction into society before all European royalty. She was wearing that spectacular red Lorenzo Caprile dress. A few weeks later, the Prince of Asturias and his girlfriend got married.
