Queen Letizia of Spain wowed in an all white number as she headed to Pamplona with husband King Felipe today.
The royal, 50, showed off her toned arms in the semi-sheer sleeveless number which she paired with nude heels and minimal jewellery.
Proving her eco-credentials, the Queen opted for a dress she’s worn several before.
The lace bodycon dress, by Spanish grand Sfera, was worn on an official visit to Colombia, and as well as to attended the ceremony of delivery of the National Flag to the Special Naval War Force in Cartagena.
Keeping jewellery to a minimum, the mother-of-three wore her brunette hair long and loose and only accessorised with a simple pair of drop earrings.
Proving she really is the the people’s queen, the royal shook hands and greeted well-wishers, before heading inside the church with her husband.
The Privilegio De La Union – or the Privilege of the Union – is the treaty by which the three main towns that formed the city of Pamplona on September 8, 1423.
The king and queen were today marking it’s 600th anniversary – where they attended a floral offering and response in front of the mausoleum of Carlos III and Leonor de Trastámara.
The mother-of-two donned a matching bubblegum pink blazer suit and smart belted-trousers.
Letizia paired this with a eggshell-coloured blouse which she tucked into the trousers, which highlighted her elegant physique.
She sported simple silver diamond studded-earrings and modest nude kitten-heels with belt detailing.
The former journalist oozed confidence as she walked on-stage with a big smile on her face.
Letizia also had her silver strands on display and has previously divided opinion as she does not dye her hair.
Writing for the Daily Mail in March, Christa D Souza argued that Letizia’s grey streak ‘signifies a woman who has given up’.
She wrote: ‘My goodness, Queen Letizia of Spain, 50, is beautiful. That skin. That figure. And that hair — luscious and brown and now with a single grey streak running down one side. Although on the hair front, if I may be so bold, Your Majesty, are you sure you’re OK with the grey?’
In 2021, stylists told FEMAIL Letizia was ’embracing her authentic natural beauty’ by letting her grey hair show.
Celebrity hair stylist Tom Smith said: ‘Lockdown has helped Queen Letizia get used to her natural tones and she is feeling empowered and confident.
Queen Letizia looks more youthful and radiant with the shimmer of grey coming through’.
‘Queen Letizia is making a bold statement by showcasing her grey roots in public as the world’s media will critique her. The change in beauty standards means grey hair is no longer a taboo. Grey hairs have become part of a person’s identity.’
It’s been a busy couple of months for the Queen, from travelling to Australia to watch her national woman’s football team win the World Cup, to saying goodbye to both of her daughters.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia have an empty nest after their youngest daughter, Infanta Sofía, 16, moved to Wales last month.
Sofía, 16, left her residence at ‘Prince Pavilion’ near Zarzuela Palace to start school at UWC Atlantic College in the Welsh county of Vale of Glamorgan.
The school is often referred to as ‘Hippie Hogwarts’ thanks to its progressive approach to education and picturesque castle setting.
The college is based at St Donat’s Castle, south Wales in a 12th century castle set in 122 acres of woodland and farmland with its own valley and seafront.
It was founded in German educationalist Kurt Hahn, is situated at the 12th century St Donat’s Castle on the country’s south coast and costs a whopping £67,000 per year for courses including Tai Chi, the theory of knowledge and Tibetan literature.
Meanwhile the King and Queen’s eldest daughter, Princess Leonor, 17, also left to go to military academy last month.
The heir to the Spanish throne must complete the three years in line with tradition as she follows the path of her father, King Felipe.
Rather like a boarding school, General Military Academy of Zaragoza follows a strict timetable during the week. but Leonor will be free to return home at the weekeneds if she’s not on manouevres.
After training at the General Military Academy in Zaragoza, which is Spain‘s equivalent to Sandhurst, she will go to naval school, and will complete her three years at the General Air Academy.
The princess, who will be 18 in October, revealed her enthusiasm for soon being a cadet at the Princesa de Girona Foundation award ceremony in Girona, in Catalonia, on July 5.
She said: ‘I have just finished high school and I am about to start a new stage with a period of military training.
‘I am happy because I know how much the Spanish value our armed forces… it is an important moment in my life and I feel very excited and determined to continue learning and giving my best effort.’
