The Queen of Spain started Day 2 of her visit to Senegal with a meeting at the Technical Cooperation Office of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation in Dakar.
Her Majesty is on a four-day working tour of the west African country to see first-hand the work carried out by the Spanish Cooperation in Senegal. The Spanish Cooperation is the sum of all people, institutions, resources and skills that Spain offers to developing countries with the end goal of contributing to human development, the eradication of poverty and full access to rights.
Following the meeting, Queen Letizia visited the "Aula Cervantes" on the campus of the Cheikh Anta Diop University in Dakar to learn about the work of the Cervantes Institute in Senegal. The Institute offers a wide selection of Spanish language instruction programs at the university and Letizia meet some of the teachers and students of the program.
Queen Letizia stepped out today in a familiar look. She opted for a clean-cut professional style, wearing her light grey Hugo Boss separates and Carolina Herrera crosshatch houndstooth patterned blouse.
She has favoured this pairing since its debut in Puerto Rico in March 2016.
Letizia again teamed the ensemble with her tonal Magrit suede peep-toe pumps and Adolfo Dominguez top-stitch flap clutch bag.
She rounded out the look with her dainty Chanel Comète Earrings.
Queen Letizia made a wardrobe change for her afternoon engagements. At midday she attended a luncheon hosted by the First Lady of Senegal, Marième Faye.
Following the lunch at the Terrou-Bi Hotel, Her Majesty and the First Lady then visited the at the headquarters of the Red Cross in Senegal.
Queen Letizia concluded the day with a stopover at the Spanish Embassy in Dakar to meet with expats linked to the Spanish Cooperation.
She repeated a floral green Carolina Herrera dress she first wore on Day 1 of the State visit to Japan in April and again for a State lunch with the Costa Rican president in May.
Like previous occasions, Letizia coordinated the dress with her Magrit 'Gabriela' bag and matching D'Orsay pumps (a bespoke version of the brand's 'Alicia' style).
Today she accessorized with her amethyst drop earrings featuring green gemstone accents.
The origin of the earrings is unclear. They were first thought to be the Pomellato Bahia drop earrings however the prong settings and position of the green stones is different to Letizia's earrings and the brand denied ownership of the design. There is an Etsy store that has the exact design of Letizia's earrings which they claim is based on a Pomellato design. I contacted Pomellato and they confirmed that Letizia must be wearing a copy.
Tomorrow Queen Letizia will move to the Ziguinchor Region of Senegal to visit the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Assane Seck and later the agroecological farms of Naatangué in Casamance.
