Queen Letizia began the day with a videoconference with the Spanish Foundation of Diabetes to know more about the work carried out by the federations and associations of people with diabetes during the pandemic.
FEDE is the Spanish patient federation with the largest number of associates in all of Spain. It is the representative body of the group of people with diabetes who, today, suffer about 6,000,000 people, for which it has a total of 19 autonomous federations and 150 local associations of people with diabetes, distributed throughout the National territory.
Among its main objectives are defending the rights of these people, contribute to the moral, physical and educational support of the group, promote and support diabetes education, promote the improvement of health care, prevent, intervene and detect diabetes early, and promote and develop research interest and development.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia then attended a video conference with those responsible for the Spanish Volunteer Platform (PVE), an organization that represents 80 state-level volunteer entities in different areas, be it social, educational, health, environmental or sports, development cooperation, among others.
The representatives of the PVE informed the Royal couple that the estimated number of volunteers in Spain is 2.7 million people, of which more than 50% (1.5 million) are involved in very active social volunteering in this COVID crisis19.
The PVE has requested support to facilitate the action of volunteers, both in terms of protective equipment, as well as the recognition of their work and the necessary permits to be on public roads. Many volunteers who belonged to risk groups, mainly older people, have gone on to virtual volunteer work, leaving behind tasks that required physical contact or closeness with other people.
The Felipe and Letizia held a video conversation with the President of the Royal Board of the Prado Museum, Javier Solana, and the Director of the Prado Museum, Miguel Falomir, who have explained the actions undertaken by the gallery in the face of the COVID crisis19.
The Prado National Museum is considered one of the most important Museums in the world, being the most visited in Spain with nearly 3,000,000 annual visitors at its headquarters and 700,000 in the travelling exhibitions. 59% are foreign tourists compared to 41% of Spanish residents.
Both, the director of the Prado and president of the Royal Board of Trustees, have expressed their concern about the economic impact on the museum as a consequence of a 70% drop in their own income, which has led them to make a minimum budget. And they have agreed on the difficulty of making future plans, due to the situation of economic infeasibility that the institution currently suffers.
Since the last week of March, Queen Letizia has been working from home. And since then we have been seeing her in some limited pieces. One of them was a windowpane checked blazer. Finally thanks to @ardillitas11 on Twitter we have the id.
Letizia has been wearing Hugo Boss Ajanisa Windowpane Check jacket. The front button closure blazer with notched lapels and long sleeves came with a matching trouser that Letizia wore once during this period.
The $495 blazer that is sold out now was described as, “Boast a classic menswear vibe in this polished, notched-collar jacket blanketed in allover windowpane plaid.” It is currently available in grey on Nordstrom Rack.
