Why Was Queen Letizia Compelled To Sit Down While Greeting Greet Royal Guests At State Banquet

Queen Letizia of Spain appeared radiant on Wednesday as she graced a Dutch state banquet at the Royal Palace Amsterdam alongside her husband, King Felipe.

Throughout their two-day visit to the country, the Spanish royals were hosted by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima.

The glittering banquet on Wednesday was a familial affair, with Máxima and Willem-Alexander’s 20-year-old daughter, Princess Catharina-Amalia, also in attendance.

Among the other royal guests were Their Royal Highnesses the Princess of Orange, Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands, and Princess Margriet of the Netherlands.

For the special occasion, the 51-year-old Letizia looked stunning in a royal blue satin gown, complemented by a yellow sash and a resplendent Cartier Diamond Loop Tiara. She adorned herself further with a pair of Queen Victoria Eugenie’s diamond earrings and a grey pearl brooch from the Joyas de Pasar collection.

In photographs from the evening, Queen Letizia could be seen seated for approximately 45 minutes as she greeted around 240 guests. While this might surprise many royal enthusiasts, there is a straightforward explanation: Letizia has been grappling with a prolonged ailment.

According to reports from Spanish outlet El Mundo, the Spanish royal allegedly suffers from chronic metatarsalgia—pain in the ball of the foot—in both feet, as well as Morton’s neuroma in her right foot, involving a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to the toes.

Her condition is purportedly exacerbated by prolonged wear of high heels, prompting Letizia to opt for more comfortable flat shoes.

King Felipe and Queen Letizia arrived in the Netherlands on Tuesday night, where they attended a reception with the Spanish community. Letizia opted for a striking black Bardot top and silver satin skirt for the occasion.

The pair were formally welcomed by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima during a ceremony in Dam Square in Amsterdam before paying their respects at the National Monument.
