And a bonus royal alert: it's Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands! She also made the trip to Madrid to view the Prado exhibition. She's wearing understated beads with the ribbon of the Order of the Golden Fleece.

Why, you ask, was Beatrix there? Here you go: the "El Bosco" being celebrated here is Hieronymus Bosch, who was a famous Dutch painter. Some of Bosch's most famous work is held at the Prado, because one of the most important early collectors of his work was King Felipe II of Spain. (And that concludes your very brief art history lesson of the day!)
