One thought on “Israeli State Visit to Spain

  1. The Queen looks fabulous in that skirt and blouse! She’s wearing what is probably her favorite tiara. It is very pretty and sort of low-key, quite appropriate to wear especially since Mrs. Rivlin was probably not going to wear something very flashy or trendy. The Queen always seemed to look after Mrs. Rivlin, which I find really nice of her.
