President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was in Spain for an official visit and honored with a special dinner by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia. Only two guests of honor were permitted into the dinner, and they were none other than Filipina journalist Isabel Preysler, who received rave reviews in the Spanish press for her elegance alone at the dinner, and husband Miguel Boyer. President Arroyo was accompanied by husband José Miguel Arroyo. Also in attendance to honor President Arroyo were Princess Letizia Ortiz, who honored Philippines especially with her Filipina-themed falda (skirt) from the fashion line Mantón de Manila, and the Prince of Spain.
