On Monday, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia attended the funeral of Felipe's maternal uncle, King Constantine II of Greece, who passed away last week in Athens at the aged 82.
Constantine II reigned as the last King of Greece from 6 March 1964 until the abolition of the Greek monarchy on 1 June 1973. He was the younger brother of Queen Sofia of Spain who travelled to Athens prior to his death after hearing Constantine's health had deteriorated. Today she was accompanied to the Cathedral of the Annunciation of Santa María in Athens for the funeral by her husband, King Juan Carlos, and daughters, Elena and Cristina.
The Spanish royal family were joined by monarchs and royalty from around Europe.
Queen Letizia looked sombre in all black and opted for a déjà vu debut.
She donned a coat dress with a silhouette we first saw in green for Prince Philip's Service of Thanksgiving. The piece is fashioned with a shawl collar and velvet trim at the wait and cuffs. The designer has not been identified.
She wore diamond drop earrings, and pinned to her chest was the 'joyas de pasar' pearl and diamond brooch.
Rounding off the look were Letizia's Giorgio Armani La Charnière Dorée Top Handle Bag and Prada Saffiano leather pointy toe pumps
Following the service, the mourners made their way to the Royal Cemetery of the Tatoi Palace for the burial ceremony.
Queen Letizia added her black Mango 'Batin' Wool-Blend Coat and swapped her Prada pumps for the comfort of her block heel suede boots which she debuted last night.

This is a very nice look for Letizia. I love that she wore that beautiful brooch. Very appropriate for this sad occasion, I hope Anne-Marie and family were comforted by the large turnout of European Royals who came to say goodbye to the former King.

It is certainly the passing of an era with the departure of King Constantine. I'm glad so many were able to attend. It must have been hard for Princess Anne so soon after the loss of her own

The shawl- collared coat looked well in green on Letizia at the Prince Philip memorial service, but comes across more harsh in black. It's still lovely and is the perfect foil for the gorgeous joyas de pasar pearl and diamond brooch. Repeating a style and remaining smart but low-key seems to be an option from the style book of the current Princess of Wales.

This is a lovely outfit, very elegant yet subtle. I love the beautiful diamond and pearl brooch, gorgeous. The diamond drop earrings were the perfect choice, dainty yet effective.
