On Saturday, The King and Queen of Spain undertook their first public engagement of 2024.
For the first time, Their Majesties were joined by their eldest daughter, Princess Leonor, as they presided over the traditional celebration of the Pascua Militar. This event is deeply rooted in the Spanish military and dates back to 1782 during the reign of Carlos III. The ceremony is held annually on the day of Epiphany at the Royal Palace of Madrid.
Following the parade, King Felipe, Queen Letizia and Princess Leonor made their way to the Throne Room within the Palace to meet officials from the Government, the Ministry of Defence and the Civil Guard.
It is customary for royal women to wear a full-length skirt for the Pascua Militar ceremony and today, the Queen of Spain wore a black column skirt by Spanish brand, Boüret, valued at €290. Crafted from crepe, the skirt boasts a high waist and a slit at the back.
Queen Letizia paired it with a light taupe silk blouse featuring a rolled neck and long sleeves.
During the outdoor parade, she covered up with her black Carolina Herrera Fur Collar Wrap Cape.
Letizia carried her black Carolina Herrera 'Astrud' Clutch, and on her feet were her PINKCHIC Guagua 'Daniela' Pumps in black.
To complete the look, Letizia wore a pair of vintage-style gold and diamond drop earrings, which were first worn for Infanta Sofia's confirmation last May.
