Spanish State Visit: State Banquet first photos

The State Banquet for King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain is under way with a glittering guest list, more tiaras than you can count and sugar flowers. Yes, sugar flowers. More on those tomorrow but for now, here's a first look at the photos from a truly spectacular evening as the Spanish State Visit Banquet takes place at Buckingham Palace.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh hosted the Banquet at Buckingham Palace where they posed for photos with their guests of honour, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, before the banquet.

The rest of the British Royal Family can be seen in soft focus behind them as the pictures were taken.

The Queen and King Felipe led the guests into dinner with speeches and toasts before the meal began. Oh yes, the sugar flowers. As I said, more tomorrow....what a day it's been as the Spanish State Visit promised for so long finally gets under way!

Catch up with the photos from earlier today here and from Felipe and Letizia's afternoon here.
