Charles, 70, kissed Letizia, 46, on both cheeks when she finally arrived at the gallery on Trafalgar Square in London to see the first major exhibition in Britain for over a century of the artist known as Spain’s Impressionist, Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. Sorolla: Spanish Master Of Light features 60 works spanning the career of the artist, who lived from 1863 until 1923.
Letizia, who came to Britain on a state visit with her husband King Felipe in July 2017, blamed traffic for keeping Charles waiting.
Charles didn’t seem to hold her to account too much over her lateness. The pair got on famously, Letizia certainly making a great impression on Charles.
