The King and Queen of Spain continued video conferences at the Palace of Zarzuela.
Her Majesty first held a conference call with representatives from Save the Children (STC). They explained the situation of vulnerable children in Spain, whose parents often work but their income doesn't allow them to move out of poverty, and single-parent families, whose situations have been aggravated by the pandemic. STC has launched 'A Tu Lado' (At your side) an emergency response program to support more than 2,000 families, it will give them access to essential food, psychological care and the possibility of continuing with their education.
Their Majesties then held a video call with the Sociedad Estatal Correos y Telégrafos (Post and Telegraph State Society) who are adapting to the development of the pandemic. This includes the protection of all Post Office workers, on average 25% of the workforce is currently working in person. The postal service has supported public administrations in delivering medical supplies and providing logistic services. Through volunteers from the companies staff, they are also helping distribute food to health workers in hospitals and medicines to groups at risk.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia held a video conference with the managers of RENFE Spain's national railway company. Their Majesties were informed of measures taken by RENFE since the beginning of the epidemic. It is anticipated that as of Monday 13th some non-essential activity will gradually be reactivated, although uncertainty regarding its progression remains high. Adapted medicalised trains have been made available to health authorities for the transport of approved patients.
Queen Letizia wore a grey pant suit with a snake grid patterned t-shirt.
At first glance I thought it was the Hugo Boss silk blouse first seen in July 2012, but this top has a different neckline.
It is the Hugo Boss snakeskin grid patterned tank top.
Over the Easter weekend, Their Majesties conversed with the following hospitals; Hospital del Mar de Barcelona, Hospital Clínico Universitario de Salamanca, Hospital General de Ciudad Real, Hospital Universitario de A Coruña and the Hospital "Álvaro Cunqueiro" de Vigo.

I love the snake print top inside the blazer. It's such a striking look. That's how reptile print should we worn- sparingly so as not to overwhelm the wearer. I agree with Elizabeth that the top from 2012 looks identical to the one worn here.

Thank you so much for continuing to post. It is a diversion during this global crisis. Letizia's fashion is not that important during this time, but it is still good to read about what she is doing. Stay safe, stay healthy, everyone.

Kudos to Their Majesties for keeping up the work ethic during lockdown, and to Letizia for making quiet changes to her business attire so each communicant has their own set of pictures to relate to. This is the only real print we've seen, almost snakeskin in style, most attractive. but in suitably muted grey to help add texture to a very low-key grey-brown jacket. She is clearly sticking to a tailored pants and jacket uniform while keeping focus on the immense problems facing different sectors of society during lockdown.
