President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton host a State Dinner in honour of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain at the White House on this day in 2000, on the first day of their visit to the United States, which also had the Queen stumbling on the stairs into the arms of the President. Coincidentally, it has just been announced that King Felipe and Queen Letizia will attend a State Dinner at the White House in April.

I’m confused by the protocol, it looks like a white tie dinner, but without tiara and orders…
I’m confused too almost every time the queen host a white tie event she always wear a tiara. Maybe Sofia didn’t bother wearing it that night,as she would’ve been the only one wearing one.
