The State Banquet hosted by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark in honor of King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia on their State Visit was an event full of elegance, warmth and symbolism.
The objective of this trip is to enrich the cooperation between the two nations, including the improvement of industrial, transport and environmental relations, as well as to strengthen the ties between the two families.
The Spanish monarchs were received with full honors at Christiansborg Palace, where the state banquet was held.

In his speech, King Felipe mentioned his daughter, Princess Leonor, and the Danish heir apparent, Prince Christian of Denmark.
“It is also a cause for shared joy that we are witnessing, almost in parallel, the important milestone of the coming of age of Prince Christian and Princess Leonor. They, Prince Christian and Princess Leonor, are the new generation that represents the continuity of the commitment of both parliamentary monarchies to their nation, their people and their democracy within the European Union,” said the King in his speech.
The King and Queen of Spain and their hosts enjoyed a sumptuous menu consisting of a sole soufflé with barigoule vegetables as a first course and a regional fallow deer leg with cabbage timbale, Graasten cherries and Grand Veneur sauce as a main course.
There was also a mushroom tart and for dessert the Concord cake, a chocolate, lemon and meringue cake.
