Queen Letizia shows off natural beauty with grey hair as she attends awards ceremony
Queen Letizia, 46, is always perfectly coiffed when she attends official events. Today was no different – but this time, the Spanish Queen opted to add a natural hint to her chic attire by foregoing the hairdye to show off strands of silver grey hair. Joined by her husband, King Felipe, 51, the mum-of-two stepped out in Madrid for a literary awards ceremony. She wore a grey dress with matching overcoat, both of which had a flash of purple on the lining.

Letizia paired her outfit with bronze eyeshadow and brown-nude lipgloss.
Her hair sat in a side parting over her shoulders.
Over Easter weekend, Letizia was seen attending mass with the rest of her family.
Attending the mass in Palma de Mallorca, she wore a long-sleeved navy shirt dress believed to be from Massimo Dutti, which featured white florals across the garment.
Her dress was nipped in at the waist by a matching navy belt tied around the middle.
She was spotted clutching onto an umbrella as she braved the weather to attend the service.
To complement the frock, Letizia opted for a pair of Magrit suede navy shoes.
Adding a splash of colour, she held onto a red leather bag from Menbur, which can be bought on the website for £121.
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.
