King Felipe VI of Spain who turned 50 today presented his eldest daughter Leonor, Princess of Asturias with her Order of the Golden Fleece at an official ceremony at Madrid’s Royal Palace.
Leonor was granted the order on 30 October 2015 – the day before her 10th birthday by His Majesty. The young princess is the 201st Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece and the first to be granted the honour under the reign of her father. According to El País, King Felipe awarded Leonor the Order for “reasons of tradition and continuity and the desire to institutionalise the figure of the Princess of Asturias as heiress of the Crown.”
Queen Letizia looked regal in red for this historic reception.
The Felipe Varela ensemble is a repeat from the State Visit to Japan in 2017. She also wore it in November last year at the World Cancer Leaders Summit.
Like in the past, Letizia opted for a monochrome look and accessorized with tonal red pieces. They included her Felipe Varela suede flap clutch bag and LODI 'Sara' ombre patent pumps.
She finished the outfit with her Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings (€2,125).
There are so many fabulous photos from today's special event which you can check out on Zimbio. Furthermore, we were treated to a series of candid photos of the Spanish royal family which were released to mark King Felipe's 50th birthday. You can see the full collection on the Casa Real website.
