Queen Letizia of Spain does corporate dressing in Madrid 

Queen Letizia of Spain, whose husband King Felipe ascended the throne in 2014, is renowned for her polished and modern approach to royal dressing.

Having worked as a journalist before marrying into the royal family, she understands the power of colour, prints and brilliant tailoring.

The Spanish queen attended an event at the Goya Theatre in Madrid yesterday, opting for a collarless suit jacket with contrast piping and matching skirt for the occasion. 

Queen Letizia has also developed a glamorous look for evening engagements and state occasions, often turning to Spanish designer Felipe Varela for special statement pieces. 

Affordable Spanish brands like Zara and Uterque are also a key part of her wardrobe.
