PALMA DE MALLORCA, Spain (CBS/AP) It was another test of the Michelle Obama's style.

The American first lady, vacationing in Spain with her daughter, Sasha, had lunch with Spain's king and queen on Sunday at the royal family's holiday retreat on the resort island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean. Among her royal hosts was Spain's Crown Princess Letizia, known as something of a style icon in her own country.

So what did they wear?

Mrs.Obama wore a sleeveless white blouse with a full rose-colored skirt and metallic flats. The princess had on a short white one-shouldered dress with an embellished neckline and strappy taupe heels.

Greek-born Queen Sofia was dressed in white trousers and a tunic top in shades of white, gray and blue. Meanwhile, Sasha wore a pink and yellow ruffled sundress.

Mrs. Obama and her daughter arrived at Marivent palace shortly before 1 p.m. and were greeted at the front door by King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia.

The king, a keen yachtsman, has for decades spent August vacations at the palace, with its dramatic cliff-top views of the sea on the Balearic island's southwestern coast, near Palma de Mallorca.

Lunch was Andalusian-style chilled gazpacho soup, char-grilled turbot, veal escalopes with mustard, Oriental rice with sauteed mushrooms, a Mallorca-style vegetable ratatouille and sliced fruit with ice cream, accompanied by wines from the northern regions of Rueda and Rioja, the palace said.

The lunch meeting marked the end of a five-day private visit to Spain by Mrs. Obama, who toured the southern region of Andalusia, including Marbella, Ronda and the Alhambra palace in Granada.

The king gave Mrs. Obama some seeds for the White House garden as a parting gift, while the queen made a present of handicrafts typical of Mallorca, the palace said.

After lunch, the first lady's party flew back to the United States aboard Air Force Two.
