Queen Letizia started her working week at the Somontes Club in Madrid where she presided over the Discapnet Awards.
The awards recognize the best initiatives and actions in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) applied to improving the quality of life of people with Disability, as well as companies, entities or organizations that have developed a continuous work in the field of ICT accessibility.
Queen Letizia made a style statement in a striped blouse and bright red cigarette pants. She premiered the HUGO BOSS 'Binesa' Stripe Shirt (€279) featuring a vertically striped pattern in complementary multi-hues and finished with solid black collar and cuffs. The 100% silk shirt also has a concealed button front placket.
She coordinated the silk shirt with red Hugo Boss BOSS 'Arima' Regular-fit trousers (£169).

Letizia exteneded the colour-block coordination to her accessories, carrying her navy/red CH Carolina Herrera 'Baret' clutch bag.
On her feet she wore her Magrit 'Alicia' D'Orsay heels in red suede leather.
The final new addition to the outfit were cuff-style earrings. She debuted the Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings (€2,125) made of white gold and diamonds. The Spanish jeweller describes the design as being inspired by the daggers of the Arab warriors.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia ended their working week in Santander, the capital city of the Cantabria region on Spain’s north coast.
Their Majesties were on hand to inaugurate the Botín Center, a new art center which aims to be one of Spain’s leading galleries and a lively welcoming place for people to learn and become inspired. It's also hoped it will be an engine for generating economic, social and cultural wealth for the region of Cantabria and northern Spain.
The royal couple then visited some of the exhibitions within the centre.
Queen Letizia was back in her seasonal favourite combination of red and white.
It has been her go-to palette since the start of Spring:
Today she teamed her deep red Carolina Herrera peplum leather jacket with white straight leg trousers.
On her feet Letizia wore her burgundy suede LODI ankle strap pump, and she contrasted the heels with her white Uterque croc-embossed clutch.
Letizia's beautiful up-do showcased her dazzling diamond and ruby drop earrings which she has worn on many occassion since their debut in 2013. The provenance of the earrings remains unknown.
The Spanish monarchs concluded their visit to Santander with a meeting of participants of the "Coworking Santander" Program.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia attended the plenary meeting of the Royal Spanish Academy today.
It is the official royal institution responsible for overseeing the Spanish language.
Queen Letizia stepped out in a new light pink dress by her go-to brand Hugo Boss.
She debuted the BOSS 'Diblissea' pleated dress (£400.00) - a demure short-sleeve frock tailored to fit through the waist before bursting into an accordion of precise pleats at the A-line skirt. The design is completed with a slender keyhole at the neckline, and two fine shutter pleats on the front bodice.
Letizia coordinated the delicate dress with familiar neutral accessories. On her feet she wore the LODI 'Saray' nude patent leather pumps and carried her Magrit 'Gabriela' bag.
The highlight of the outfit was the Uterque pink leather belt with a dragonfly buckle (€49.00). Made in Spain from high-quality leather, the dragonfly-shaped buckle is covered in imitation gems.
In addition to the new dress and belt, Letizia also premiered a pair of mixed gemstone earrings from Coolook. They are the 'Sarin' earrings (€167.00) made from hand-cut aventurine quartz and pink quartz stones.
You may recall Letizia already owns this style with amethyst and labradorite stones, which she first wore in September 2015 for an audience at Zarzuela Palace.
Queen Letizia was in Aviles today - a town in the Princiilipty of Asturias, northern Spain. She met with the teachers and students participating in the "Toma La Palabra" cultural program for schools established by the Princess of Asturias Foundation.
The Spanish queen looked chic in a candy-cane inspired outfit.
The red sleeveless blouse is a new addition to her closet and is by CH Carolina Herrera. The fluid silk top has a pleated neckline, crew neck and key hole detail on the back.
Queen Letizia contrasted the top with her white crepe pants by Massimo Dutti.
On her feet she wore her red Mango perforated design sandals, and she offset the striking heels with her white Uterque croc-embossed clutch.
Letizia finished the look with her Yanes sunburst white gold and diamond earrings.
King Felipe & Queen Letizia paid a visit to Prado Museum today where they were joined by schoolchildren participating in the "El arte de educar" program designed to help young people understand art.

She first wore this all-white combination in 2015 for Armed Forces Day.
Today, Letizia accessorized with her blush Felipe Varela suede clutch, and debuted a pair of unconventional mules in a similar tone.
The shoes are a modified version of the Magrit 'Adela' clogs (US$402). Letizia had the heels customised with a platform sole.

I'd like to extend my best wishes to the Spanish royal family on the occasion of the third anniversary of King Felipe VI's proclamation!
On Friday, the King and Queen of Spain welcomed the board of the Princess of Asturias Foundation El to Pardo Palace for the annual meeting.
The Foundation offers a series of prizes (previously called the Prince of Asturias awards) to individuals, entities or companies from around the world who make notable achievements in the sciences, humanities, and public affairs.
Her Majesty opted for an elegant vintage style, wearing her silk cornflower blue Felipe Varela full-circle skirt.
Many of you will recognize the 1950's inspired skirt from the visit to Belgium in November 2014. Letizia later wore the exact same outfit at the pre-ceremony lunch for Cervantes Prize winner in April 2015.
Today she refreshed the look for summer with a white cap sleeve blouse featuring a pleated neckline.
The silk top is by Carolina Herrera which was identified from this listing on chicfy.com:
Letizia harmonized the ensemble with her cornflower blue platform suede pumps from Magrit and TOUS blue stone and mother of pearl dangle earrings.
Queen Letizia chaired the annual meeting of the Board of the Residencia de Estudiantes (Student Residence) today.
Located in Madrid, Residencia de Estudiantes was the first cultural center of Spain. Founded in 1910, the Student Residence was a vibrant hub for scientific and artistic work and exchange in Europe. Nowadays, it remains one of the most prominent cultural centres in Spain. It hosts concerts, conferences and exhibitions. It is also inhabited by around 20 young outstanding artists and researchers, which keep alive the historical legacy of this place.
Her Majesty stepped out in a familiar frock which has become one of her signature pieces since she debuted the floral dress shortly after becoming Queen in June 2014:
To refresh your memories, the dress is the Hugo Boss 'Dinoma' sheath, rendered in the 'rose fantasy' floral print. It was from the BOSS 2014 spring/summer collection and retailed for €479/US$650.
Letizia accessorized the dress with her white Felipe Prieto flap leather clutch bag and nude LODI 'Saray' patent leather pumps.
She wore her hair up in a pretty pony-tail and finished the look with her Yanes flower stud earrings.
Looking back at some of Letizia's past outfits for this annual event, we expected Her Majesty to sport a corporate-casual style today. But she deviated from her penchant for pants and we were pleasantly surprised to see her don something a little more feminine.
Queen Letizia was a picture of elegance as she welcomed former UN Secretary Ban Ki-moon to Madrid today.
She was on hand to deliver an award from the Spanish Committee of UNICEF to Ban Ki-Moon, who was recognised for his 'exemplary career' and for his work on the defense, protection and development of children's rights.

The Queen of Spain welcomed audiences today at the Palace of Zarzuela.
Her Majesty looked smart and professional in a toned-down style, wearing a simple tweed vest and straight-cut trousers.
The sleeveless top is a new release and is fashioned with a black, white and pink pixel pattern. It features a fitted silhouette and round neckline. The brand/designer of the piece is currently unknown.
Letizia teamed the patterned top with her trusty black Hugo Boss 'Taru' trousers from the BOSS line.

She finished the understated look with her dainty Chanel Comète Earrings.
The King and Queen of Spain travelled north out of Madrid today for a visit to the National Center for Food Technology and Security (CNTA) in the town of San Adrián.

For today's engagement, Queen Letizia stepped out in her oriental-inspired Felipe Varela outfit, consisting of a white pencil skirt with a striking burgundy floral pattern, and a coordinating burgundy silk blouse.
The ensemble has been one of her favourites since she first wore it in June 2015 during the royal tour of Mexico:
