King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain attended the annual armed forces day that was held in Seville this year.
Armed Forces Day is observed in Spain since 1978. It started as a purely military celebration, but with time became a more colourful and popular event, the central act that is held each year at a different city. Since 1987 it is observed the Saturday nearest to 30th May, the feast day of Saint Ferdinand, King.
Upon arrival, King and Queen were received by the President of the Junta de Andalucia, Juan Manuel Moreno Bonilla.
A Battalion of the Royal Guard gave honours to the Royal couple.
Three Royal Guards, representatives of each of the Armies and the Navy, and a Civil Guard carried the Flag that was later hoisted to the National Anthem.
A tribute to the fallen was paid by the King and armed forces and King laid a wreath in the honour of fallen soldiers who gave their lives to defend the nation.
A flypast was performed by the Spanish Air Forces.
The event ended with a formal parade. A reception was offered to the three armies and Civil Guards in the presence of their Majesties where they met with defence and civil authorities.
The €280 crepe dress features cross-over design, short sleeves with shoulder gathers (super flattering), cut at the waist with a button and a plunging neckline. The dress is still available online. The dress is also available in Blue.
Letizia paired the dress with red Felipe Varela wide-heel leather pumps.
She was carrying red Magrit handbag
and chose Queen Sofia’s ruby and diamond earrings to finish the look.
