The King & Queen of Spain undertook their first public engagement of 2023 on Friday.
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.
Queen Letizia wore her red Felipe Varela column gown with her black Carolina Herrera wool cape. and red Magrit leather pumps.
It is customary for royal women to wear a full-length gown for the Pascua Militar ceremony. Below is a look back at Letizia's previous ensembles since becoming Queen consort.
Queen Letizia accessorized with her Gold & Roses 'I Am Red' Needle Earrings and debuted the Coreterno 'Amor Che Tutto Move' Ring (€975).

Letizia in red is always a winner! She looked stunning! A repeat is good with these tough economic times! I wonder if the new ring was a Christmas gift from the king. Hmmm.

This is a beautiful Varela gown. The claret red colour is gorgeous and the carefully placed lace patches give it some interest as well as a vintage look. I think it goes back almost 10 years so I's great to see it again.

Obviously Letizia has no problem slipping into something form-fitting from 10 years ago!

The red Varela gown is perfect for this occasion with its rich but sophisticated embellishment on bodice and hem,plus touch of lace on the sleeves. The black fur-collared Herrera cape comes into its own and looks magnificent, and the ruby tipped Gold and Roses earrings are the perfect finishing touch. Altogether most regal and easily up to the standard of the other fine outfits shown for this occasion.

This is a beautiful form fitting gown. The lace inserts are a gorgeous addition, well placed and suitably enough. The color of is gown is divine, suits the Queen beautifully. The fit of this gown is perfect. The color of the shoes are splendid. Love the ruby and diamond earrings, unusual, discreet but gorgeous. Previous ensembles, 2015, 2016 and 2017 are favourite appearances, I loved.
