The King and Queen of Spain concluded their tour to all of the Autonomous Communities with a trip to Gijón, the largest city and municipality by population in the autonomous community of Asturias. The objective is to support the recovery of social, economic and citizen activity following the COVID-19 lockdown.
Their Majesties first activity of the day was a visit to the headquarters of COGERSA (Consortium for Solid Waste Management of Asturias). COGERSA recycles all waste from all over Asturias, it employs more than 400 workers, a total of 800,000 tons per year is recycled throughout the plant: domestic, commercial, industrial and hospital waste. The King and Queen held a meeting with the representatives of the Consortium and toured the facilities visiting the packaging plant and the sanitary waste area with explanations from the COGERSA manager.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia travelled to Cerro de Santa Catalina a park in Gijón, where they saw the 30th-anniversary exhibition of the Elogio del Horizonte (Praise of the Horizon) sculpture by Eduardo Chillida. They received explanations from the director of the Culture Foundation and through a series of photographs and texts Their Majesties were able to see how the construction of Chillida's work was carried out. The Royal Couple moved to the upper part of the viewpoint where they held a meeting with a representation of health workers from the Hospital de Cabueñes, COVID-19 reference centre in Gijón.
The Royal Couples final activity of the day was a visit to Museo y Circuito Fernando Alonso. The museum is dedicated to the promotion of motorsport and a memorial to Fernando Alonso, a two-times Formula One World Drivers' Champion from Oviedo, Asturias, Spain. Their Majesties received a guided tour by the man himself, Fernando Alonso, they had the opportunity to observe a video on road safety, viewed the karting circuit and road education tent before touring the museum's collection and signing the book of honour.

This is a pretty, comfortable looking summer dress. The spotted print, the cap sleeves and the keyhole at the neckline lift it up a notch.

Sorry for the duplicate comment. I had some trouble.

A pretty print on a simple dress makes for a good High Street buy for a regal working outfit. I like the sweet keyhole neckline and the Mint and Rose espadrilles are a neater fit than some of Letizia's others, and look to have a pink tone chiming with what I assume to be pink spots on the dress.

Such a simple, no fuss dress, but it looks great on Letizia. I like everything about it. Wish she had black, flat shoes like the model is wearing. They are a better balance with a summer dress.

This is a lovely straightforward, smart looking and uncomplicated dress. I like the appealing neckline and the print is very engaging. I love the length of this dress. The Queen wears this dress beautifully.

This ensemble flows perfectly, the dress is lined and the alpargatas appear graceful. For a different event, bolder accessories may enhance the simple cut of the dress - trendier styling would have been impractical for Thursday's mixed agenda. While googling this piece I saw it accompanied with a black waist belt and black low block-heeled nudist sandals, the look was stylish and well put together. This was the last stop on Their Majesties tour, in this unprecedented time I appreciate that fashion was of no importance. Over the duration of the tour, I felt that there were too many garments lacking in quality, which didn't showcase the best of the Inditex brands among others, I'm sure Macarena was delighted that the Queen heavily endorsed them. As I have mentioned previously, adopting a paired back uniform of pieces that Letizia already owns; cropped trousers, sleeveless blouses and delicate alpargatas with the occasional well-chosen dress may have made for a more cohesive and understated wardrobe. For me, the most successful looks of the tour (not including evening wear) were the four day-dresses from Adolfo Dominguez (minus the pink Macarenas - I didn't warm to that style), and Pedro del Hierro, along with the statement Uterqüe jacket and black separates.
