The King and Queen of Spain attended the prestigious Cervantes Award ceremony today held at the University of Alcalá on the outskirts of Madrid.
The prize is one of the most regarded literary awards in Spain and Latin America, and is granted annually to honour the lifetime achievement of an eminent writer in the Spanish language. This year it was awarded to the Spanish novelist, Eduardo Mendoza Garriga.
Queen Letizia repeated the exact outfit she wore to last year's National Day parade, recycling each piece from head-to-toe.
Coincidently, for the Cervantes Award ceremony in 2016, Letizia repeated her 2015 National Day outfit. Perhaps this is a new sartorial tradition Her Majesty is instigating! We'll have to wait until next year to see if she does it again!
The ensemble consists of an off-white Felipe Varela tweed coat-dress with black beaded floral motif.
She teamed the elegant dress with her natural slub envelope clutch and pumps by Magrit.
Letizia finished the look with her white gold bezel set diamond and Australian pearl earrings.
