The King and Queen of Spain presented the journalism awards of the Madrid Press Association (APM) for the years 2019 and 2020, at Cybele Palace in Madrid on Tuesday.
The pandemic forced the APM to postpone the ruling of the 2019 edition, so 2019 has been awarded jointly with the 2020 edition. The APM awards are considered among the most prestigious in the sector and are generally convened at the end of each year.
Queen Letizia arrived at the event wearing her pink Carolina Herrera brushed wool coat.
The cozy topper is from the designer's F/W 2017 collection and was first worn by Her Majesty in November of 2018 for the State welcome of the President of China.
Today Queen Letizia opted to wear her Reiss 'Marlie' ombre pleated midi skirt with a basic black crew-neck knit.
We first saw the eye catching skirt for a Rare Diseases World Day event in March of 2020.
Letizia complemented today's look with her Carolina Herrera 'Astrud' clutch bag and Steve Madden 'Dominique' over-the-knee suede boots.
She completed the ensemble with her Gold and Roses Balance Combo Earrings.
Earlier in the day, Casa Real released a pre-recorded message from Queen Letizia to mark the 18th edition of Safer Internet Day (SID).
The National Institute of Cybersecurity annually celebrates SID, and for the first time this year, it carried out events digitally due to the pandemic. The day not only aims to create a safer Internet but a better Internet, where technology is used in a responsible, respectful, critical and creative way. SID targets children, young people, parents and guardians, teachers, educators and social workers, as well as businesses and policy-makers, encouraging them to actively participate in creating a better Internet.
It appears the pre-recorded message was filmed last Friday because Queen Letizia wore the same outfit for the meeting of the Delegate Commission of the Princess of Girona Foundation (shown below).

I liked this skirt paired with the pink blouse but it's a nice change to see it with black. The pleats of the skirt really stand out and create a dramatic effect. It's amazing to see the King and Queen out and about in Feb. without a jacket or coat. It must be very warm in Madrid. I am envious -shivering at sub-zero temperatures..

Sandy, it is inside, she wore a pink coat outside. Actually it was an awful day with rain, wind and 8C degress.

Thanks Simone. I really thought it was outside. I was fooled.

Actually we have had in January the worst snow stom in 50 years, called Filomena and temperatures around -15C or even -30C.

Sadly this ensemble doesn't quite work for me. I've said before that I would prefer the skirt with a black fitted turtleneck, black thin waist belt, black suede pumps, the Carolina Herrera black wrap coat and pearl studs. The skirt may be more flattering if it was two inches shorter in length and fell just below the knee. It came in several colours, I wish the Queen had opted for the fiery scarlet version instead (link below).

Hi Jennifer, thank you for the link. The skirt is gorgeous, the splash of scarlet works in well, I love it, combined with the red stiletto shoes - stunning.

Hi Ava, I agree, Reiss did an excellent job styling the skirt for eveningwear. Here is an image of Holly Willoughby (a British TV presenter) wearing the skirt for workwear. I love the simple styling, it allows the statement skirt to shine. The only details I would change of Holly's look are; I would remove the necklace and add a thin waist belt instead similar to the Reiss stock photograph.
The first wearing of the outfit was a little bit pedestrian (in place of blah). This skirt itself is dramatic and flowy in motion. The addition of the black sweater and the high heeled boots raises the outfit to the level of glamorous. The fluffy, candy pink coat is there for effect. Other pictures reveal that the front of the building is an atrium. There are small trees on the side, and no one is wearing their coat.

That's right, Zoe, the name is an "atrium", and it is all covered with glass, because of that it allows the light to enter. Actually it was pouring down in Madrid.

This is the building, it is a Palace, El Palacio de Cibeles, (Cibeles Palace) so they were "inside": it is from 1919, but it seems a modern mall inside, with a cristal gallery, it is very pretty.

The Queen looks lovely, but I prefer the last wear of this skirt. The gorgeous, luscious pink silk blouse was fabulous and to me looked great. A thin belt would make the overall look more polished. I love the pink coat, but not with this outfit, my personal preference only.

The Reiss skirt is improved no end by losing the loose baggy shirt and being worn with a form fitting black crew neck. With the pink Herrera coat and racy over-the-knee Steve Madden boots I feel the skirt is rescued from being a fashion foible to a sophisticated piece in a sleek ensemble.
