King Juan Carlos & Queen Sophia arrived today. The usual ceremonies. They flatteringly but nicely remembered our having tea with them in Madrid in 1972. Our meetings were fruitful even though he is very conscious that under the Constitutional Monarchy he can not declare policy. We’ve established a good raport. The State dinner was most entertaining. Ella Fitzgerald sang—great as always. Then we danced—my 1st dance ever with a Queen. This afternoon met with J.C. [Jimmy Carter]. I expected the worst but he was cordial, friendly and just exchanged views on the Middle East etc.
