The Spanish royal family attended National Day celebrations in Madrid today.
The patriotic commemoration marks the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival into the Americas on 12th October 1492, also known as Columbus Day in the United States.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia were accompanied by their daughters, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia to preside over the traditional military parade of Fiesta Nacional de España.
Following the parade, the royal couple hosted a reception in the Throne Room of the Royal Palace where they had invited diplomats and Spanish dignitaries.
WHAT QUEEN LETIZIA WORE
SET: A bespoke pale dusty pink double-breasted jacket with a matching Chantilly lace midi dress by Felipe Varela.
SHOES AND BAG: Custom pale dusty pink suede pumps and coordinating 'Ivi' flap clutch by Magrit.
EARRINGS: Chanel 'Plume' earrings (US$7,700).
Letizia has predominantly favored tailored designs by Felipe Varela for this annual national day event. In 2010, the then Princess of Asturias branched out and wore a relaxed pant and shawl ensemble. Letizia's smart casual approach didn't go down too well with everyone, and she has since rectified her faux pas in subsequent years.
