King Felipe VI & Queen Letizia welcomed Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and First Lady Nechama Rivlin for the commencement of their State visit to Spain today. The visit marks 30 years of diplomatic ties between the two countries.
The official welcome ceremony was held at the Royal Palace of Madrid which included the playing of each country's national anthem and a Royal Guard parade.
Queen Letizia was the perfect host and escorted Mrs. Rivlin who carries an oxygen tank due to a respiratory illness.
After the ceremony, Their Majesties offered a private luncheon for their Israeli guests at their home in the Palace of Zarzuela.
Today Queen Letizia stepped out in a gorgeous purple-hued number by one of her go-to labels, Hugo Boss.
The 'Kusima' dress from the HUGO line features a subtle waist detail and is cut with a flattering fit-and-flare silhouette. It had an original retail price of US$545 before going on sale for US$272.99. It is still available in limited size at Hugo Boss online.
Queen Letizia covered up with her classic Burberry trench coat for the welcome ceremony. It has been a favourite of the Spanish royal since 2010.
Letizia complemented the look with a new set of matching taupe reptile-printed leather accessories by Magrit. She carried the 'Gisela' clutch bag (US$350), and on her feet were the 'Marcela' pumps (US$360).
There was also a debut in the jewelry department. Letizia finished the look with a new pair burgundy and green stone drop earrings.
They look very similar to the Pomellato Bahia drop earrings featuring amethyst with green tsavorite accent. However you will notice the prong settings and position of the green stones is different to Letizia's earrings.
There is an Etsy store that has the exact design of Letizia's earrings which they claim is based on a Pomellato design. I have included it below for reference. I have contacted Pomellato and they confirmed that Letizia must be wearing a copy.
In the evening, The King and Queen of Spain will offer a State Banquet in honor of the visiting President of Israel and his wife at the Royal Palace of Madrid. We expect to see Queen Letizia in a gown and crown jewels tonight.
