The King and Queen of Spain continued video conferences today from their home at the Palace of Zarzuela.
Her Majesty chaired the meeting of the Foundation for Aid Against Drug Addiction (FAD) Board of Trustees via video conference. FAD encourages the development of young people through education and the prevention of social risk behaviors.
The Queen, Honorary President of FAD was informed of the educational emergency actions that are being launched; Information Service for young people, new research related to the crisis, and new programs designed to reduce the effects of the pandemic on the most vulnerable young people. During the meeting, the consequences derived from the closure of schools and the situation of students after confinement was discussed. FAD has also launched a sociological investigation, in collaboration with the University of Granada and Malaga, on the educational community after the crisis, with the aim of altering actions to make them as effective as possible.
Queen Letizia wore a new red speckled jacket featuring a collarless neckline, concealed zip closure, and contrast trim detail.
The style is similar to this Hugo Boss jacquard jacket, however I notice Letizia's jacket does not have the black trim at the cuff. This detail may have been removed if she had the sleeves shortened.
Later, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia held a video conference with managers and workers from METRO Madrid. The group explained to Their Majesties that during the spread of the virus shifts and schedules were altered to continue service, METRO Madrid has transferred sanitary products and key workers during the pandemic. Economically, confinement has had a significant impact, at the highest quarantine peaks demand fell by almost 90%, which could see a decrease of trips of up to 45% for the year. At the initiative of a group of METRO Madrid employees, thousands of family members, friends, and clients have raised more than 110,000 Euros to buy water, cleaning materials, and bedding, to deliver to the elderly, welfare centers, and families with limited resources.
