Queen Letizia joined her husband King Felipe VI on Tuesday to deliver the 36th edition of "la Caixa" scholarships to 120 Spanish students selected for postgraduate studies at the best universities around the world.
Her Majesty brought back the navy floral Hugo Boss BOSS 'Viplisa' pleated skirt first worn at a luncheon for the visiting President of Palestine last November. The skirt originally retailed for £270 but is currently discounted down to £81 at Flannels (while stocks last).
Letizia restyled the look with a new ice blue knit top. It is the Hugo Boss BOSS 'Frankie' cuff detail sweater (£139) crafted in a merino-quality mercerised virgin wool, and finished with metallic buttons at the cuffs.
Queen Letizia arrived at the venue in Madrid wearing a new navy trench coat. It is the Hugo Boss 'Cirala' coat - a style she debuted in beige only a few days ago when visiting KIng Juan Carlos in hospital.
She complemented the tonal blue set with her bespoke navy Magrit cross-strap patent leather pumps and CH Carolina Herrera 'Baret' flap clutch bag in navy leather.
Letizia released a new pair of earrings for the occasion from her go-to Spanish jeweller, Coolook. They from the brand's 'Rain' collection and combine gold-plated hoops (€56) with the 'Rain' pendant (€99). The large pendant features a Chalcedony teardrop stone in a gold-plated setting with two topaz gems on either side.
The interchangeable pieces can be bought separately, however Coolook also offers a readymade pair of earrings with a smaller chalcedony drop (€190).
Their Majesties have presided over the "la Caixa" scholarship presentations since 2015, taking on the role from Felipe's parents following his acendension to the throne in 2014. Letizia's outfit this year was a modest deviation from the sleek sheath dresses she wore in the past. Which do you prefer?
