The King and Queen of Spain attended the annual 'Mariano de Cavia', 'Luca de Tena' and 'Mingote' Journalism Awards gala dinner this evening hosted by Spain's national newspaper, ABC.
The awards are the oldest and most prestigious honours in Spanish journalism and Queen Letizia, a former journalist, was on hand to deliver the €10,000 prize to this year's recipients.
Queen Letizia stepped out for the black-tie event in her Carolina Herrera Dégradé Sequin Silk Midi Dress which she premiered at the Israeli reception in November last year.
She again teamed the sparkly cocktail dress with her black LODI straight-cut vamp patent pumps.
Letizia carried her custom black Magrit 'Nassa' clutch.
She arrived at the event wearing a new black coat. I believe it may be velvet or short faux fur with a full faux fur trim.
Her Majesty finished the look with the joyas de pasar diamond chanton earrings - a collection of jewels designated by Queen Ena in her will for the select use of Spanish queens.
