The King and Queen of Spain attended an institutional ceremony today marking the capitulations of Valladolid within the framework of 500th anniversary of the Earth's first circumnavigation by Portuguese explorer Fernando de Magallanes who organised the Spanish expedition in 1519.
Queen Letizia looked resplendent in red wearing a two-piece suit by Spanish fashion designer Roberto Torretta. It features blazer with a wide notched lapel and illusion vest closure, and boot cut trousers with a slit at the hem.
The set is from the designer's Fall/Winter 2017/18 collection and marks the first piece Her Majesty has worn by the eponymous label. Born in Buenos Aires, Roberto Torretta moved to Madrid in 1972 to get acquainted with the fashion world. After decades working for other fashion houses he went solo in 1997. At present, his lines are divided into prêt-a-porter women's wear, which is presented every season on the catwalk in Madrid, a night collection and another collection of bridal gowns.
Letizia teamed the pant suit with her Carolina Herrera 'Maysa' clutch bag and a new pair of bespoke red suede pumps by Magrit.
On her way into the Monastery of Our Lady of Prado for the ceremony, Her Majesty rugged up in her winter white belted coat which dates back to November 2010 and a matching scarf.
Letizia finished the outfit with her Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings (€2,125).
