We had a unexpected surprise this evening. King Felipe joined his wife, Queen Letizia at the Spanish finals of the FameLab International competition. It was scheduled to be a solo event attended by Her Majesty, but at the last minute King Felipe decided to join his wife.
FameLab, founded in the United Kingdom, is an annual communications competition designed to give scientists and engineers a platform to share their enthusiasm for their subject with the public. The contestants are required to break down their science, technology and engineering concepts into fun and entertaining three minute presentations. The winner from each participating country gets to battle it out at the FameLab International Grand Final in June at the Cheltenham Science Festival.
There was also a pleasant surprise on the sartorial front. Her Majesty looked effortless in an all-white ensemble by Pedro del Hierro. It features an asymmetrical overlay hemline and cross straps which create a draped open back.
The set is from the Spanish designer's 2017/18 fiesta collection and marks the first occasion Her Majesty has worn a peice by the eponymous label.
Letizia kept her accessories neutral. She carried her Adolfo Domínguez python clutch and on her feet were her Prada nude patent pumps.
She complemented the look with her Arabel Lebrusan Filigree Links Bangle (£745) made of recycled silver and plated with yellow gold. Letizia premiered the bracelet back in September 2012, but this is the first time she has worn it since becoming Queen consort.
Letizia completed the outfit with her hammered gold Bimba Y Lola earrings.
What did you think of this year's ensemble compared to previous looks for this annual event?
