The King and Queen of Spain attended a meeting today linked to plans to mark the 5th centenary of the first circumnavigation of the globe by the Spanish explorer Juan Sebastián Elcano, and the Portuguese Ferdinand Magellan, which began in 1519.
The committee took an opportunity to enjoy the Fall sunshine and posed on the grounds of Zarzuela Palace. Queen Letizia dressed for the season and looked chic in autumnal colours.
Her Majesty debuted a new set by Hugo Boss, consisting of the red BOSS 'Fuyuma' Virgin Wool Cardigan (US$245) atop of the BOSS 'Fuyuka' pullover (US$195) in a matching hue. This photo shows a close-up of Letizia's coordinating tops.
Letizia complemented the knitwear with the Hugo Boss 'Vulnona' Skirt (US$375) featuring in a red-sparked houndstooth plaid pattern. The tailored skirt by BOSS is available at Nordstrom and Bloomingdales and comes complete with a black D-Ring belt.
On her feet she wore her Hugo Boss BOSS 'Staple R100-C' Black Crocodile-Embossed Pumps. The exact shoe is no longer available but you can browse the 'Staple' range online where you'll find this silhouette rendered in patent leather. The only stock photo I can find is of the shorter heeled R70-C model shown below.
Letizia finished the look with her Links of London Hope Egg earrings (£325), also a favorite of the Duchess of Cambridge.
Queen Letizia joined husband King Felipe in Caravaca de la Cruz, Murcia today to mark the town's Jubilee Year.
Their Majesties attended a ceremony at the Basilica Santuario de la Vera Cruz, where the town's famous Holy Cross relic is kept.
For her day in Murcia, Queen Letizia brought back an elegant grey Carolina Herrera ensemble which she premiered on the final day of the State visit to Portugal in November 2016. She also wore it in April this year at the 4th Educational Congress of Rare Diseases in Valencia.
Today Letizia teamed it with her Magrit 'Mila' snake-effect pumps and Lidia Faro python skin clutch bag.
She finished the look with her pave diamond teardrop dangle earrings.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia presided over the Plenary Session of the Royal Board of the National Library of Spain on Friday.
Opened in 1712 and once owned by the Crown, the National Library of Spain receives and preserves copies of all books published in Spain. In addition, it treasures a valuable collection of incunabula, manuscripts, prints, drawings, photographs, and sound recordings.
Queen Letizia looked all business in her grey structured pant suit by Hugo Boss.
First worn in February for the Forum Against Cancer meeting in Madrid, the sleek set consists of the BOSS 'Jadela' Stretch Virgin Wool Asymmetrical Blazer and BOSS 'Tiluna' Stretch Virgin Wool Dress Pants. The blazer is currently discounted by 60% at Saks Off Fifth.
Today Letizia teamed it with her Lidia Faro python skin clutch bag and a new pair of loafer style pumps by Magrit. The bespoke design is based on the Spanish brand's 'Tania' model.
She finished the ensemble with her modern circles link earrings.
This evening the King and Queen of Spain delivered the XXXIV edition of the "Francisco Cerecedo" Journalism Award at the Hotel Ritz in Madrid.
The purpose of the annual award is to honor journalists who battle the pressures and influences of power, and promote freedom of expression.
Queen Letizia arrived at the hotel lobby wearing her black Carolina Herrera fur neck cape.
The piece is from the designer's CH Fall 2016 collection. Her Majesty debuted the stole on the eve of the Princess of Asturias Awards 2016 and she also wore it to this same event last year.
Once inside, Letizia removed the cape to reveal a glittering mini-dress consisting of layers of white flounce fabric decorated with shimmering sequins.
The look is daringly different to her previous sartorial choices for this annual event where she has always favoured black ensembles. It will be interesting to see if Her Majesty continues to introduce more colour in future years.
The flapper-style dress trimmed with thick black velvet straps and neckline is said to be a creation of Teresa Helbig dating back to 2008! We assume this piece by the Barcelona born and based fashion designer has been sitting in Letizia's closet for some time!
Having opted for a statement dress Letizia kept her accessories to a minimum teaming the tiered gown with her black Felipe Varela satin clutch bag and black Prada Saffiano print patent leather pointy toe pumps.
Her jewellery was also kept simple settling on her 'wedding' earrings which were a gift from her in-laws, and the mysterious encrusted ring.
The Queen of Spain chaired a meeting today and delivered the "Queen Letizia Awards 2016 and 2017" of the Royal Board on Disability.
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. Today the Queen welcomed the winners to the Royal Palace of El Pardo.
For the occasion, Queen Letizia borrowed a look from this year's National Day ceremony.
The blue-grey Felipe Varela outfit features a belted woollen jacket and a matching box-pleated skirt detailed with a hand-embroidered floral motif on the front and back.
Queen Letizia complemented the set with her ocean blue Felipe Varela leather clutch adorned with Swarovski crystals, and her midnight blue Magrit patent leather pumps.
Completing the look were her Bvlgari diamond and aquamarine white gold hoop earrings.
On Monday, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia hosted a luncheon in the Hall of Columns of the Royal Palace in Madrid for the visiting President of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas.
Her Majesty donned all new pieces for this stately occasion and teamed a mustard yellow blouse with the Hugo Boss BOSS 'Viplisa' Pleated Floral Skirt (£270). Adorned with a classic floral print in a repetitive pattern all over, this style is cut to a midi length with a pleated silhouette. Featuring a zip fastening to the side, this style is finished with a striped waistband.
The 'Viplisa' skirt is also available at Hugo Boss UK and Nordstrom but the waist has been modified and does not feature the striped band like the one worn by Letizia and shown above. The length of the skirt has also been shortened to the knee. The floral pattern can also be found on the BOSS 'Diplisa' dress.
I believe the mustard blouse is also by Hugo Boss. It looks similar to this draped blouse by the German brand but I'm not confident to make a positive ID.
On her feet, Letizia debuted the Magrit 'Claudia' slingback pumps rendered in a bespoke navy blue leather.
The only familiar piece of the outfit were her TOUS blue hydrothermal quartz and amber earrings.
The Queen of Spain is in Mexico this week for the World Cancer Leaders Summit, and this morning she attended workshops and meetings at The Palace of Mining in Mexico City.
Queen Letizia donned a familiar ensemble for these high-level meetings organised by the Union for International Cancer Control.
She wore her petrol blue Nina Ricci separates consisting of a sleeveless crinkled top and a matching slit-front a-line skirt. Letizia debuted the set at the FameLab competition in 2016.
Today she coordinated the outfit with her navy Nina Ricci pointed toe suede pumps and added contrast with her red Zara laser cut leather crossbody bag.
Completing the look were her Bvlgari diamond and aquamarine white gold hoop earrings.
Queen Letizia made a wardrobe change for the afternoon session of the summit.
She returned to the The Palace of Mining in an all-red Felipe Varela ensemble, a repeat from the State Visit to Japan earlier this year.
For the closing session of the day, Queen Letizia addressed the delegates of the summit.
She removed the long jacket to reveal the beautiful crimson velvet dress which remained obscured during the Japanese visit.
On her feet she wore her burgundy LODI ankle strap suede pumps, and Letizia finished the outfit with her ruby and diamond dangle earrings.
The Queen of Spain has traveled to Mexico this week for the World Cancer Leaders Summit, and she today paid a visit to the national headquarters of the Mexican Red Cross.
During her tour of the facilities in Mexico City, Queen Letizia met with officials and volunteers of the institution and learnt about the humanitarian operation that was deployed following the September earthquakes.
For her first engagement in Mexico, Queen Letizia debuted a professional set by her go-to brand, Hugo Boss.
She wore the Hugo Boss 'Karolie' Check Jacket - made from premium cotton woven with a basket weave in a navy/white gingham pattern. The BOSS blazer is fashioned with a crew-neck, polished snap buttons, and a fringe trim at the placket completes the look. The elegant jacket is currently available from Hugo Boss UK (£350), Hugo Boss USA ($575), and Saks Fifth Avenue ($575).
Letizia teamed the contemporary jacket with a pair of navy blue cropped trousers featuring a cuff detail. They could be the BOSS 'Acrila' trousers (£159).
She carried her navy Loewe Large Double Pouch bag.
Her Majesty premiered the Massimo Dutti Blue Suede Court Shoes (£79.95) featuring a blue suede finish and black fabric toe cap detail. They have a leather lining and insoles and a metallic front detail on the block heel.
Letizia completed the sophisticated ensemble with her dainty Chanel Comète Earrings.
The Queen of Spain attended the official welcome dinner of the World Cancer Leaders' Summit this evening at the Banker Club in Mexico City.
Queen Letizia is in Mexico to participate in this annual high-level policy meeting organised by the Union for International Cancer Control. Her Majesty is honorary president of the Spanish Association Against Cancer and its Scientific Foundation and participates actively in its work, recognizing the important work that has been done for more than 60 years in the fight against cancer.
Queen Letizia dazzled this evening in a black jumpsuit by Felipe Varela. It is a piece she first wore at the Princess of Asturias Awards concert in October 2015, and again a few months later for the ABC journalism awards dinner.
For this third revisitation, Queen Letizia added a regal touch. She accessorized with the diamond chanton earrings and diamond bracelets which are part of the joyas de pasar - a collection of jewels designated by Queen Ena in her will for the select use of Spanish queens. We also got a glimpse of the mysterious green stone ring.
Letizia finished the look with a playful ponytail.
On Tuesday evening the Israeli President and his wife reciprocated the previous night's gala dinner by hosting a reception at the Royal Palace of El Pardo, their official residence during their State visit to Spain.
The cocktail reception was modest compared to last night's stately banquet, but Queen Letizia still dazzled in a black and white sequined number.
She debuted the Carolina Herrera Dégradé Sequin Silk Midi Dress (US$5,990). The sleeveless silk dress is designed with a jewel neckline and a fluid chiffon skirt which flares in a flattering A-line silhouette to an elegant mid-calf length.
The designer dress is decorated with black liquid-shine sequins from shoulder to hip, and white round paillettes throughout. Below is a closeup of the sequin detail.
Letizia teamed the sparkly cocktail dress with simple black accessories. She carried her Felipe Varela satin clutch and on her feet she wore her LODI straight-cut vamp patent pumps.
Her Majesty wore diamond chanton earrings which are part of the joyas de pasar - a collection of jewels designated by Queen Ena in her will for the select use of Spanish queens.
However, Letizia left the joyas de pasar bracelets in the royal vault and instead accessorized with a wide mesh-style bracelet and a knotted chain bracelet. She also wore her mysterious green stone ring.
The two bracelets hark back to her days as the Princess of Asturias. Here we see them worn independently.
This was the fifth State Visit of a foreign President to Spain in the three plus years that Felipe and Letizia have been on the Throne. Below are the past outfits worn by Letizia for these cocktail receptions. Do you have a favourite?
