The King and Queen of Spain attended the prestigious 'Miguel de Cervantes' Award ceremony on Tuesday.
The annual event is held at the University of Alcalá in the town of Alcalá de Henares - the birthplace of Spain's greatest writer, Miguel de Cervantes who is best known for his masterpiece, Don Quixote.
The award is one of the richest literary prizes in the world and is the most regarded literary awards in Spain and Latin America. It honours the lifetime achievement of an eminent writer in the Spanish language. This year, Their Majesties presented the Cervantes 2018 Prize to Uruguayan writer, Ida Vitale.
Queen Letizia looked elegant in her grey Carolina Herrera double-face ensemble for the esteemed event.
The coat and matching dress is from the designer's CH Carolina Herrera line and belongs to the Fall 2016 range.
This is the fifth occasion Her Majesty has worn the separates since their debut in November 2016 during the State Visit to Portugal.
Today's decision to opt for a sartorial repeat is consistent with previous attendances of the 'Miguel de Cervantes' Award ceremony. However, this year Queen Letizia did not wear a set by Felipe Varela as she did in the past.
She again paired the Carolina Herrera co-ordinating separates with snakeskin accessories. Today Letizia chose the custom Magrit studded snakeskin pumps and matching clutch bag, which she debuted in February 2018 at the National Sports Awards.
She finished the look with her dazzling diamond cascading earrings, first seen at the 2014 Prince of Asturias Awards.

The Queen looks very polished. I like this coat best with the cuffs turned up showing the underside of lavender, it lifts the grey, which is necessary where there is a lot of fabric between the coat and dress. I think the snakeskin accessories are well chosen, not too coordinated and more interesting than nude pumps. The black sides of the clutch are an effective way to introduce a small amount of a contrast colour. This Carolina Herrera has always been worn with snakeskin shoes, I can't think of a better alternative in Letizia's wardrobe. The darker hair colour is really growing on me, her hair looks so healthy and elegant - the side parting is very flattering.

Agree with you about those cuffs, the lilac tone is needed to lift the uniform grey. Also agree Letizia's hair is looking amazing of late, glossy and full of body.

Ida Vitale, the winner of the prize, 95 years old, is fantastic, I recommend you as she has works in English as well.

It's snowing and raining non stop in Spain, 10 cms of snow in the North of Madrid....

This a beautiful, gorgeous ensemble. The grey fabric contrasted with lavender trim on the sleeves, belt and lining of the coat is superb. I'm just not crazy about the snakeskin accessories and would love to see the outfit with lavender shoes matching the lining.

She's worn this before? And this is the fifth outing! I have no recollection of it whatsoever, it worries me sometimes just how my memory gets wiped so clean at times.

Oh this is a beautiful outfit. The Queen looks a class act, so poised. A beautiful coat, love the cuffs in lavender colour. The snakeskin shoes and bag, are divine. The diamond cascading earrings are stunning. She really is so well groomed, and never fails to look anything but stunning.

This ensemble is the height of daytime elegance. It is professional and structured yet feminine and soft at the same time. I'm very happy to see it again.

Queen Letizia wearing this grey Carolina Herrera double-face outfit with accent of lavender is the height of daytime elegance and perfect for the weather in Spain at the moment. I like the snake skin pumps and clutch with this outfit, but I would have preferred a lavender pump and clutch, she looks fabulous 💜.
