Then the Emir of Qatar addressed the gathering followed by the Spanish National Anthem. Toasts were raised to celebrate the relationship between both countries.

Letizia was wearing a Gabriela Lage Champagne embroidered long sleeve gown. The gorgeous gown had a boat neckline, slightly flared sleeves, an embroidered thin self-belt, and a small train.
The Queen paired the gown with a pair of diamond earrings that are a gift from the Emir and Sheikha of Qatar and her Order of Charles III Commander dame’s bow.
and her Karen Hallam ring.
