The King & Queen of Spain undertook their first public engagement of the New Year today.
Their Majesties 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.
Following the parade, King Felipe and Queen Letizia made their way to the Throne Room within the Palace to meet officials from the Government, the Ministry of Defence and the Civil Guard.
It was a case of déjà vu in the fashion department for the Queen of Spain. Dressed in a customary full length dress, Queen Letizia wore the same teal green Felipe Varela gown she donned to the same event in 2015.
She also coordinated the look with the same tonal suede accessieres by Magrit.
Letizia did however change up the look with a beautiful braided up-do and her COOLOOK 'Sarin' earrings.
This is not the only occassion Letizia has opted to repeat a look she has previously worn to this event. In 2008 & 2009 she wore the same outfit consisting of a light sage jacket she debuted in 2005. In 2014 Letizia re-wore a blue ensemble she originally sported in 2012. Here's a look back at Letizia's past outfits for the Pascua Militar ceremony:
Later that afternoon, the Spanish royal family were pictured leaving Zarzuela Palace in a minivan en route to the home of Letizia's father for private celebrations marking the Feast of the Epiphany.
Her Majesty donned a new navy military-style jacket and TOUS gold long dangle earrings.
The velvet jacket is the Mango Military style coat (US$169.99).
