Letizia and Felipe have previously visited Queen Maxima andKing Willem-Alexander. Back in 2014, the Spanish King and Queen traveled to the Netherlands for a one-day visit, during which they had lunch at Noordeinde Palace.

They have since reunited at events, including the 2019 Order of the Garter service in the UK, in addition to the Service of Thanksgiving for the Duke of Edinburgh in 2022, Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in 2022, King Constantine II of Greece’s funeral in 2023 and King Charles’ coronation in 2023.

The two royal couples traveled to Wales last May for their respective daughters Princess Leonor and Princess Alexia’s graduation from UWC Atlantic. Queen Letizia’s firstborn and Queen Maxima’s second daughter began their International Baccalaureate studies at the school in 2021. Prior to the Spanish and Dutch Princesses attending UWC Atlantic, King Willem-Alexander said (via RTL Boulevard) that it “was a total surprise” for them that Leonor would be attending the same school as Princess Alexia. He added, “But I am sure they will get along well together.”
