King Felipe and Queen Letizia this week made their first official visit as Spanish Monarchs to the Netherlands.

They visited King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima, plus a number of Dutch government officials.

The couples are said to have a close relationship, particularly the Queens, who recently sat together at the United Nations. Queen Máxima is from Argentina and, like Queen Letizia, is not of Royal birth.

Separately this week, King Felipe opened this year’s session of the Royal Academies. Tradition calls for His Majesty to visit different academies every year. This time he went to the Royal Academy of Sciences.
