Today, the King & Queen of Spain undertook their first public engagement of the New Year. They presided over the traditional celebration of the Pascua Militar, which is deeply rooted in the Spanish military and dates back to 1782 during the reign of Carlos III. The ceremony is held annually on the day of Epiphany at the Royal Palace of Madrid, and this was King Felipe's first as Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
Following the parade, Felipe and Letizia made their way to the Throne Room within the Palace to meet officials from the Ministry of Defence and the Civil Guard.
It is customary for royal women to wear a full length dress to the Pascua Militar ceremony, and today Queen Letizia opted to wear her Felipe Varela teal green gown. The bespoke gown features embroidery down the sides and a beaded tonal belt at the waist. The long sleeve dress has a a scoop neckline and it is fabricated from double crepe wool.
The gown was first worn by Letizia in February 2014 at the Reception for the Diplomatic Corps.
Letizia color coordinated her accessories, wearing her bespoke Magrit teal suede platform pumps and matching clutch bag.
She finished the outfit with her multi-stone TOUS 'Beethoven' earrings (£990) which she debuted in November 2014 at the Nutrition Conference in Rome. What's usual about these earrings is that the pair are different colours. They are made from 18kt yellow gold and feature emerald, chrysoprase, green tourmaline, turquoise, ruby, opal and pink quartz stones.
