The Queen of Spain traveled to Portugal today for the opening session of the 7th European Conference Tobacco or Health (ECTOH).
Queen Letizia delivered a speech in Spanish and English at the forum which aims to address policies to control tobacco consumption in Europe and the world, and to reiterate to society the harmful effects of tobacco on health and its influence on the development of cancer.
Her Majesty repeated the Carolina Herrera jasmine printed sheath dress she premiered in New York in September 2016, and wore again a month later.
On arrival in Porto, Queen Letizia combated the chilly air with her red Hugo Boss shawl collar coat.
On her feet Letizia wore the LODI 'Saray' nude patent leather pumps, which she released last month to welcome the Argentine president and his wife to Spain.
She picked up on the pink tones in the dress and added a new pink quilted handbag by Uterque (£145).
The quilted crossbody bag is made in Spain from high quality leather. It has a silvertone fastening detail on the foldover front flap and logo hardware on the back. It features a double chain-and-leather crossbody strap. The interior is finished with a single inner compartment and a zip side pocket.
The Spanish queen completed the outfit with her white gold Chanel 'Plume' diamond earrings.
The Queen of Spain attended a meeting of the Royal Board on Disability today.
Her Majesty is the honorary president of the organization, whose primary mission is to promote the prevention of impairments, rehabilitation and social integration of people with disabilities.
Queen Letizia arrived at the Board's headquarters in Madrid wearing a familiar burgundy-hued ensemble.
The outfit consists of her recently released bouclé peplum top (whose signature is still unknown), and Hugo Boss 'Valessima' pencil skirt.
She accessorised the stylish set with her marsala ACOSTA clutch bag and a nude snakeskin version of Magrit's 'Laura' pumps.
The highlight of today's look was Letizia's hairstyle. She transformed her usual sleek locks into tousled waves which she loosely pinned in a half-updo.
Letizia topped off the outfit with her interchangeable earrings from Spanish jeweler Coolook. She wore the smoky quartz 'Big Candy' stud earrings with the 'Hera' pendants.
The Queen of Spain received two audiences at Zarzuela Palace today. She first met members and collaborators of the ALMA Association against the Violence of Gender
This was followed by a hearing with the Board of Trustees of the Direct Line Foundation and the Jury and Committee of Experts who award the "Journalistic Road Safety Award".
Queen Letizia shimmered in her navy speckled tweed suit by Hugo Boss.
She originally debuted the trousers for the opening of the academic year in 2015, and a year later she wore the complete set by adding the matching blazer.
She again teamed the suit with a cornflower blue sweater and Coolook Big Ameba earrings.
I believe she wore a new pair of navy patent leather pumps which appear to have a cross strap.
They look like the Magrit 'Laura' style which she already owns in pink, but I don't see a double strap so they could be a bespoke version of this model.
The King and Queen of Spain presented awards at the 7th edition of "Honorary Ambassadors of the Spanish Brand" today.
The accreditations recognize companies and organisations that promote Spanish products and services around the globe.
It was a fitting choice for Her Majesty to wear an outfit consisting of Spanish brands. She premiered a new jacket by Zara - the label's new season frilled sleeve coat (US$169).
The red coat has a round neck with front zip placket fastening. It is finished with long sleeves and frilled cuffs detail.
Letizia teamed the coat with black slim trousers and a black and white checked pussy-bow blouse by Spanish designer, Roberto Verino which she debuted last month for the closing ceremony of the Telefónica Foundation research project.
She accessorized with her black Carolina Herrera patent and suede pumps.
Letizia arrived at the venue carrying her red Carolina Herrera 'Maysa' clutch bag.
For the second time within a week, Letizia wore her circle link earrings which date back to 2008.
Today's sartorial choice is consistent with Letizia previous nod to Spanish brands for this event. In 2013 she wore Felipe Varela, and in 2015 she debuted a patterned Zara jacket.
Queen Letizia's best "accessory" today was her dashing husband. King Felipe coordinated his tie to match his wife's outfit. I love when they do that! ?
On Wednesday evening, King Felipe and Queen Letizia attended the XVth "In Memoriam" tribute concert for victims of terrorism in Spain. They were photographed entering the National Music Auditorium in Madrid.
The event has been held annually since 2003 and is usually chaired by a senior member(s) of the Spanish royal family. Below we see a photo of Their Majesties with the organizers and sponsors.
Before the concert, a one minute silence was observed to honor all victims of terrorism.
After the concert, the royal couple headed back stage to meet with members of the orchestra.
Queen Letizia opted for an understated style, recycling a Uterque blouse she premiered in May 2012.
The black blouse features a fine gold dotted pattern with solid patch pockets on the chest.
Letizia teamed the blouse with a new pair of high-waisted trousers, also by Uterque.
She wore the Spanish brand's black straight cut trousers with bow detail (€110).
Queen Letizia accessorized with her Nina Ricci 'Arc' clutch and Magrit black patent platform pumps (bespoke).
She complemented the look with her gold TOUS long dangle earrings.
On Tuesday, Queen Letizia held a meeting with the new management team of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID).
Queen Letizia looked smart and polished in her grey Carolina Herrera cashmere separates.
The suit made its debut in November 2015 for the tour of the Centre of Molecular Biology at Autonomous University in Madrid with Queen Rania of Jordan, and Letizia wore it again for a visit to the University of Salamanca in April 2016.
She accessorised with her men's-style Hugo Boss 'Norrmalm' business bag and black Prada saffiano patent leather pointy toe pumps.
We also saw the return of the circle link earrings which date back to 2008.
I will be away from Wednesday to Sunday so unfortunately I will not be able to cover Queen Letizia's engagements this week. I will do a catch up blog post when I return. - Elizabeth x
Queen Letizia presided over a ceremony at the Prado Museum to mark World Rare Disease Day 2017.
She delivered a speech in her role as honorary president of the Spanish Federation For Rare Diseases. Letizia emphasized the importance of scientific research in the search for cures, and acknowledged individuals and organizations who support people with rare diseases.
During the ceremony, Her Majesty presented the annual awards to persons and entities who work to support people with rare diseases.
Letizia opted for a clean-cut professional style, wearing her light grey Hugo Boss separates and Carolina Herrera crosshatch houndstooth patterned blouse. She has favoured this pairing since its debut nearly a year ago in Puerto Rico.
The suit consists of the BOSS 'Kamalia' fitted blazer with metal detail (sold out), and BOSS 'Acnes6' structured trousers (sold out).
Today she chose a closed-toe shoe and premiered a bespoke version of Magrit's 'Leonor' pumps rendered in a light grey suede with concealed platform. This is a style Letizia owns in many different colourways.
She rounded out the look with her TOUS cultured freshwater pearl drop earrings.
The professional elegance of today's outfit is consistent with Letizia's previous sartorial choices for this event:
Queen Letizia was in Avila today to deliver the closing address at the International Congress "Women and Disability: We Crossed Borders", whose objective is to propose strategies and actions that contribute to the equality and empowerment of women with disabilities, as well as to eradicate discrimination and violence.
She arrived at the exhibition centre wearing her black Hugo Boss 'Cegina' coat.
Once inside the building, Letizia took off her overcoat and revealed a new shift dress by Carolina Herrera.
The Carolina Herrera Prince Of Wales Floral Cutout Dress (US$3,490) is from the Venezuelan-American fashion designer's Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
The Italian-made Prince Of Wales check dress is crafted in wool and features a mini length hem with pale pink underlay skirt and a floral cutout design.
She coordinated the look with her beloved blush pink patent envelope clutch by Magrit.
On her feet were the LODI 'Saray' nude patent leather pumps (€109). The SARAY model is a classic lounge made of nude patent leather with a heel height of 11.5 cm and 0.5 cm concelated platform.
She topped off the look with her signature pink lip gloss and interchangeable earrings from Spanish jeweler Coolook. She wore the smoky quartz 'Big Candy' stud earrings with the 'Hera' pendants.
The Queen of Spain attended a board meeting with Fundéu BBVA today at their headquarters in Madrid.
The Fundéu BBVA (Fundéu being an acronym for Foundation of Emerging Spanish) is a non-profit organization created in February 2005 in Madrid with an objective to maintain the unity and “purity” of the Spanish language.
Queen Letizia wore her black Zara Military Jacket (sold out) - a cotton jacket with a raised velvet collar and passementerie detail on the front and sleeves. It is finished with gold-toned buttons on the front and velvet-covered cuffs.
She teamed the military jacket with black straight leg trousers and her natural white Hugo Boss BOSS 'Bajula' silk blouse.
On her feet she wore the BOSS Hugo Boss 'Staple R' Black Crocodile-Embossed Pumps.
Queen Letizia highlighted the outfit with a Malababa Minihontas Python Asphalt Gold clutch (€670). The defining feature of the bag is the genuine agate centrepeice.
I'm not certain if the piece is new. On November 2015 Hola magazine released candid photos of Her Majesty on a date night with King Felipe, and in those photos she was carrying a black Malababa Minihontas clutch. Due to the grainy nature of the images it was not possible to distinguish if she carried the lambskin or python version of the bag. Perhaps this settles the debate but it wouldn't surprise me if she also owns the lambskin model because she has this style in beige and brown suede as well.
Letizia finished the look with her Bimba Y Lola gold hammered-effect hoop earrings.
