King Felipe and Queen Letizia, who are on 5 days State Visit to the United States of America, are having a busy schedule. After finishing the day full of various engagements the royal couple attended an official dinner gala hosted by the city of San Antonio in their honour.
The gala was held at the Pearl Stable, a historical building that was the former home for the Pearl Brewery’s draft horses in the late 19th century. The Stable has been meticulously renovated to preserve the charm and integrity of the original structure that is now used to host social events.
Upon arrival, The Spanish Royals were received by the Texas Government and authorities of Pearl Stable.

King Felipe gave a formal speech at the gala dinner. During his speech, King remarked, “It is difficult to achieve a deep and objective knowledge of history, but it is a worthy effort, as it can guide us and help us look towards the future. How not to pay homage to all those who work so that the presence of Spain in these lands is known and valued fairly? Where would our historiography be today without the selfless work of great scholars and writers like Herbert Bolton, as well as Carlos Castañeda and, obviously, Gilberto Hinojosa and Felix Almaraz, both present here today? I feel the duty to pay homage to them; they have been pioneers in a field in which they have stood out for their honesty and intellectual reach.”
For the gala dinner, Queen Letizia wore Carolina Herrera black and white Sleeveless Floral Lace Tiered Dress. Thanks to the @HeavenQRF on twitter for quick id.
This Carolina Herrera dress features black sheer bodice with round neckline, a sleeveless A-line silhouette, and a tiered white floral embroidered lace skirt.
The front panel of Queen’s dress was modified with complete lining removing the sheer part of the original dress. The dress belongs to the label’s 2017 Ready-to-Wear Collection.
