Princess Mary and Danish Royal Family Host Spain’s King and Queen
In a display of diplomatic unity and cooperation, Their Majesties The King and The Queen of Spain this week visited Denmark on a three day state tour.

The Spanish Royal visit to Denmark is not merely a ceremonial event. It is a testament to the longstanding friendship and the shared commitment of the two nations in addressing global challenges together.

After the Royal Couple were welcomed by the Queen and the Royal Family at Copenhagen Airport, the Majesties drove to Amalienborg, where the official reception took place.

The King and Queen of Spain joined Queen and Princess Mary and Prince Fredrik of Denmark for a gala dinner at Christiansborg Castle. 


Culture was on the cards for the Royals during the visit. Queen Letizia of Spain cut a glamorous figure as she visited the Sorolla Exhibition in Copenhagen alongside her husband King Felipe VI. She was joined by Prince Fredrik and Princess Mary, who re-wore a H&M dress which she had tailored into a skirt over four years ago. 

Queen Latizia joined Princess Mary to visit Mary Elizabeth’s Hospital. The collaboration between Denmark and Spain in medical research, healthcare innovation, and pharmaceutical advancements is vital. The state visit provides an opportunity for both nations to explore new ways to combat health issues and improve healthcare systems.

One of the significant areas of cooperation between Denmark and Spain is the green transition. Both nations have demonstrated their commitment to sustainability and environmental conservation.

The Royal couple were given a tour of the exhibition “Copenhagen in Common” at the Danish Architecture Center, located in BLOX. The exhibition was created on the occasion of Copenhagen’s appointment as the World Architecture Capital in 2023.

It is a 160-year-old tradition in the Danish royal house that the guests of the regent, if they are of prime rank or heads of state, sign a window pane when they say goodbye after a state visit. 

When their Majesties The King and Queen of Spain bid farewell to Her Majesty The Queen at Fredensborg Castle, Their Majesties signed a window. Which from now on, will be hung on the North Zealandian castle as a reminder of the Royal Couple’s state visit to Denmark.
