Queen Letizia of Spain radiates style in snake print dress at Royal Palace in Madrid
From her high street finds to her designer ensembles, Queen Letizia of Spain is widely admired for her fashion choices. Today was no different, as the 46-year-old exuded style in a look which is right on trend. As she and King Felipe awaited the arrival of the President of Peru, Martín Vizcarra, and First Lady, Maribel Díaz Cabello, the Queen could be seen wearing a grey and pale blue snake print midi dress. It featured a shirt-style collar, and seemed to be slightly fitted at her waist.
The royal teamed the look with a cream coat, which hung open.
The garment had a paler toned lapel, as well as a long belt – which Queen Letizia opted against tying.
Adding some colour to today’s aesthetic, the mother-of-two wore a pair of dark red high heels.
She kept to a maroon theme with her accessories – carrying a suede clutch bag of the same colour.
The final touch to her latest look was a pair of silver and red drop earrings.
She kept her make-up simple – adding a sweeping of smoky eye shadow and rose pink lipstick.
The Queen had styled her hair in a sleek down ‘do.
Last week, Queen Letizia rewore a £3,100 outfit.
It consisted of a monochrome striped dress, which was mostly black except for some white horizontal stripes.
The bateau neckline dress is thought to be by Carolina Herrera.
It can usually be bought on Net-A-Porter for £2,685.
She teamed it with a cream clutch bag, as well as a pair of black and white high heels.
These bespoke Magrit pointed toe pumps seem to be a favourite for the royal, as she has worn them a number of times before.
It’s thought that they could have cost around £238.74.
She finished her ensemble with a leather bag, which usually sells for £266.39 at Shopbop.
Queen Letizia wore a very similar look back in November last year, during a three-day visit to Peru.
Queen Letizia of Spain: Five facts about the Spanish royal
Letizia was already famous in her native Spain thanks to a career as a TV presenter and journalist.
She even won an award for best Spanish journalist under 30 in 2002, just before she met King Felipe.
Felipe and Letizia Ortiz, as she was called then, wed in 2004.
She wore a long-sleeved wedding dress with a 15 foot train by Manuel Pertegaz.
As is custom with royal weddings, Letizia wore a tiara. Her diamond and platinum Prussian tiara is a German imperial heirloom created in 1913 by Koch for Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia’s wedding to Prince Ernst August.
Letizia is the eldest of three daughters, with her middle sister tragically taking her own life in 2007.
Now, Letizia has two daughters, Leonor, Princess of Asturias and Infanta Sofia of Spain. She is a hands on mum, taking the children to school and enjoying countless family holidays with them.
Letizia has been married before, wedding Alfonso Guerrero, a teacher, in 1998.
However she did not require an annulment before her roman-catholic marriage to then Prince Felipe in 2004 as her marriage to Guerrero was a civil ceremony.
In 2008, Letizia underwent surgery on her nose to correct a respiratory problem, the Spanish palace confirmed at the time.
