Following from last night's presentation of the Princess of Girona awards, the King and Queen of Spain remained in Catalonia to attended various seminars developed by the Princess of Girona Foundation.
Queen Letizia went back to basics and played it safe in a familiar combination of a white Hugo Boss pleated blouse, navy trousers and navy Magrit 'Mila' leather pumps.
She dug deep into her closet to pull out a blue snakeskin handbag by Felipe Verela. Coincidentally, the first time we saw it was 7 years ago to the day for a meeting with the board of the Prince Of Girona Foundation.
Here's a clearer look at the top handle bag from 2010:
Letizia harmonized the outfit with her TOUS blue stone and mother of pearl dangle earrings.
King Felipe & Queen Letizia made their annual pilgrimage to Girona today for the Princess of Girona Awards. The awards recognize exceptional achievements made by the youth of Spain in areas such as scientific research, artistic creativity, social solidarity and entrepreneurship.
The program of activities kicked off with an informal meeting with the winners of previous editions and a luncheon meeting with the Advisory Council of the Princess of Girona Foundation.
This was followed by a meeting with the Board of the Princess of Girona Foundation.
Unfortunately there are very limited photos from these engagements and I could not find one showing Letizia's outfit in its entirety. From the limited photos, we see that she wore a pretty bodycon fil-coupé floral skirt which she teamed with her Hugo Boss 'Banora' vanilla silk blouse.
Letizia accented the outfit with a new green shoulder bag.
It is the Hugo Boss 'Berlin' clutch bag. The grained leather bag comes with a detachable shoulder strap. The bag heralds from the BOSS pre-fall 2015 collection which means Letizia has had it hiding in her closet for some time.
Her earrings were also new.
Queen Letizia introduced another pair of interchangeable earrings from Spanish jeweler Coolook. She wore the Labradorite 'Pangea' earrings (€125) with the mixed stone 'Pangea' pendant (€175) and finished the set with the pendant from the 'Butterfly' earrings (€295).
That evening, King Felipe & Queen Letizia attended the Princess of Girona Foundation awards.
Their Majesties delivered the prizes on behalf of her eldest daughter, Leonor. The 11 year old royal heir is now the honorary president of the Princess Girona Foundation, a position her father, Felipe VI once held. The name of the foundation was changed in December 2014 to reflect the title now held by Princess Leonor.
For tonight's ceremony, Queen Letizia sported a fresh, youthful style. She wore a new off-white jumpsuit by Massimo Dutti - from the brand's Summer 2016 collection.
Letizia removed the self-belt and accessorized the jumpsuit with her own reptile-skin wide belt in a silver tone.
She coordinated the belt with her silver croc-embossed clutch bag and Magrit 'Hera' metallic sandals.
Queen Letizia up-ed her style by adding royal jewels. She wore the "joyas de pasar" diamond bracelets on one wrist for maximum glitz. She topped off the look with her white gold and diamond chandelier earrings by Yanes.
Looking back at Letizia's past outfits for this annual event, it's obvious there's been no consistency with her style. I like the unpredictability of her choices and tonight was no exception!
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia chaired a special session in Parliament today to mark the 40th anniversary of Spain's first democratic election in 1977.
Her Majesty looked regal in red as she stepped out in a new Carolina Herrera guipure lace dress.
Below we see the sleeveless fit-and flare frock worn by Loren Gray at the Carolina Herrera Spring 2017 Show. However, I believe the piece is from the designer's Evening Fall 2016 collection.
Here is a look at the back of the dress.
Queen Letizia accessorized with a new pair of beige Prada glossed Saffiano leather pointy-toe pumps (US$650) and a new red clutch bag with a satin panel down the centre.
The handbag is the 'Mary' model from Magrit (€240).
Today we saw the return of the diamond and ruby bracelet which dates back to October 2007 when Letizia wore it to the Royal Gala Dinner in honour of Slovakian President. Its provenance is unknown.
She coordinated the bracelet with her Aldao Joyeros ruby cabochon and diamond dangle earrings.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia welcomed the President of Slovenia, Borut Pahor at their home in the Palace of Zarzuela today.
Their Majesties hosted a luncheon for Mr Pahor in honour of his official visit to Spain.
For the occasion, Queen Letizia aired her HUGO Hugo Boss 'Cherri' top which she debuted just over a year ago for her visit to the Telefonica headquarters.
She again teamed the white peplum top with black straight-leg trousers (most likely by Hugo Boss) and her black Magrit 'Mila' leather pumps.
Letizia finished the polished look with her beloved TOUS cultured freshwater pearl drop earrings.
Queen Letizia started her working week at the Somontes Club in Madrid where she presided over the Discapnet Awards.
The awards recognize the best initiatives and actions in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) applied to improving the quality of life of people with Disability, as well as companies, entities or organizations that have developed a continuous work in the field of ICT accessibility.
Queen Letizia made a style statement in a striped blouse and bright red cigarette pants. She premiered the HUGO BOSS 'Binesa' Stripe Shirt (€279) featuring a vertically striped pattern in complementary multi-hues and finished with solid black collar and cuffs. The 100% silk shirt also has a concealed button front placket.
She coordinated the silk shirt with red Hugo Boss BOSS 'Arima' Regular-fit trousers (£169).
Letizia opted for a tonal belt, wearing the Hugo Boss 'Ley-D' belt in red leather (£125).
Letizia exteneded the colour-block coordination to her accessories, carrying her navy/red CH Carolina Herrera 'Baret' clutch bag.
On her feet she wore her Magrit 'Alicia' D'Orsay heels in red suede leather.
The final new addition to the outfit were cuff-style earrings. She debuted the Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings (€2,125) made of white gold and diamonds. The Spanish jeweller describes the design as being inspired by the daggers of the Arab warriors.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia ended their working week in Santander, the capital city of the Cantabria region on Spain’s north coast.
Their Majesties were on hand to inaugurate the Botín Center, a new art center which aims to be one of Spain’s leading galleries and a lively welcoming place for people to learn and become inspired. It's also hoped it will be an engine for generating economic, social and cultural wealth for the region of Cantabria and northern Spain.
The royal couple then visited some of the exhibitions within the centre.
Queen Letizia was back in her seasonal favourite combination of red and white.
It has been her go-to palette since the start of Spring:
Today she teamed her deep red Carolina Herrera peplum leather jacket with white straight leg trousers.
On her feet Letizia wore her burgundy suede LODI ankle strap pump, and she contrasted the heels with her white Uterque croc-embossed clutch.
Letizia's beautiful up-do showcased her dazzling diamond and ruby drop earrings which she has worn on many occassion since their debut in 2013. The provenance of the earrings remains unknown.
The Spanish monarchs concluded their visit to Santander with a meeting of participants of the "Coworking Santander" Program.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia attended the plenary meeting of the Royal Spanish Academy today.
It is the official royal institution responsible for overseeing the Spanish language.
Queen Letizia stepped out in a new light pink dress by her go-to brand Hugo Boss.
She debuted the BOSS 'Diblissea' pleated dress (£400.00) - a demure short-sleeve frock tailored to fit through the waist before bursting into an accordion of precise pleats at the A-line skirt. The design is completed with a slender keyhole at the neckline, and two fine shutter pleats on the front bodice.
Letizia coordinated the delicate dress with familiar neutral accessories. On her feet she wore the LODI 'Saray' nude patent leather pumps and carried her Magrit 'Gabriela' bag.
The highlight of the outfit was the Uterque pink leather belt with a dragonfly buckle (€49.00). Made in Spain from high-quality leather, the dragonfly-shaped buckle is covered in imitation gems.
In addition to the new dress and belt, Letizia also premiered a pair of mixed gemstone earrings from Coolook. They are the 'Sarin' earrings (€167.00) made from hand-cut aventurine quartz and pink quartz stones.
You may recall Letizia already owns this style with amethyst and labradorite stones, which she first wore in September 2015 for an audience at Zarzuela Palace.
Queen Letizia was in Aviles today - a town in the Princiilipty of Asturias, northern Spain. She met with the teachers and students participating in the "Toma La Palabra" cultural program for schools established by the Princess of Asturias Foundation.
The Spanish queen looked chic in a candy-cane inspired outfit.
The red sleeveless blouse is a new addition to her closet and is by CH Carolina Herrera. The fluid silk top has a pleated neckline, crew neck and key hole detail on the back.
Queen Letizia contrasted the top with her white crepe pants by Massimo Dutti.
On her feet she wore her red Mango perforated design sandals, and she offset the striking heels with her white Uterque croc-embossed clutch.
Letizia finished the look with her Yanes sunburst white gold and diamond earrings.
King Felipe & Queen Letizia paid a visit to Prado Museum today where they were joined by schoolchildren participating in the "El arte de educar" program designed to help young people understand art.
For the occasion, Queen Letizia combined two familiar pieces from her closet. She paired the Hugo Boss 'Jeisana' peplum jacket with her Felipe Varela chiffon knife-pleated skirt.
She first wore this all-white combination in 2015 for Armed Forces Day.
Today, Letizia accessorized with her blush Felipe Varela suede clutch, and debuted a pair of unconventional mules in a similar tone.
The shoes are a modified version of the Magrit 'Adela' clogs (US$402). Letizia had the heels customised with a platform sole.
She finished the look with her TOUS moonstone earrings.
I'd like to extend my best wishes to the Spanish royal family on the occasion of the third anniversary of King Felipe VI's proclamation!
On Friday, the King and Queen of Spain welcomed the board of the Princess of Asturias Foundation El to Pardo Palace for the annual meeting.
The Foundation offers a series of prizes (previously called the Prince of Asturias awards) to individuals, entities or companies from around the world who make notable achievements in the sciences, humanities, and public affairs.
Her Majesty opted for an elegant vintage style, wearing her silk cornflower blue Felipe Varela full-circle skirt.
Many of you will recognize the 1950's inspired skirt from the visit to Belgium in November 2014. Letizia later wore the exact same outfit at the pre-ceremony lunch for Cervantes Prize winner in April 2015.
Today she refreshed the look for summer with a white cap sleeve blouse featuring a pleated neckline.
The silk top is by Carolina Herrera which was identified from this listing on chicfy.com:
Letizia harmonized the ensemble with her cornflower blue platform suede pumps from Magrit and TOUS blue stone and mother of pearl dangle earrings.
