Today, King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain marked their 16th wedding anniversary. The beautiful couple said ” I do” on this day in 2004. Letizia wore a beautiful silk Manuel Pertegaz gown with Prussian Tiara on her wedding. But the special day did not stop them from working. Felipe and Letizia had a couple of virtual meetings before celebrating the day privately with their daughters and family.
Earlier in the morning, Queen Letizia held a video conference with representatives of the National Federation of Sports Facilities and Gyms (FENID) to learn how the crisis caused by COVID-19 is affecting a sector that provides sports services to more than 5.5 million people and generates more than 214,000 jobs, in a total of 4,743 sports centres and gyms in Spain.
One of the objectives of the companies associated with FNEID is to fight sedentary lifestyle and obesity, especially that which affects minors and young people, by promoting physical activity, improving people’s health and quality of life. Established in 1997, FNEID is the national business association that represents companies and entrepreneurs in the sports facilities and gyms sector whose economic activity is aimed at offering and providing services related to physical exercise and health, the sports leisure and sports physical practice. FNEID has been representing the sports facilities sector, the Fitness industry and sports services related to health for more than 20 years.

Later on, Queen joined her husband King Felipe for a videoconference with the Spanish Confederation of Commerce (CEC), in which they discussed the concern of the local commerce sector in this difficult time as it is going through the consequences of the COVID pandemic- 19, both at present and in the short and medium-term.
According to the CEC, after two months in which the majority of establishments in the sector have remained closed, with no income and facing fixed costs, the situation in the sector is critical. Without effective aid and a plan to reactivate demand, the CEC estimates that 20% of the sector will close its doors.
They were informed about the need for an economic support plan to be established during the restart of the activity. Felipe and Letizia made a commitment to help CEC to overcome the crisis. We might see them undertaking a couple of engagements for CEC in the future.
Now to What Letizia Wore – Queen Letizia wore a grey sweater paired with a black trouser. The sweater has ribbed detailing at the neckline and sleeves.
Update: Letizia paired the outfit with black suede ballerinas. Initially, I thought they are from Prety Ballerina. But a lovely reader sent me the details of this Hugo Boss ‘Royal’ pointed toe Flats that looks like more closer match to what Letizia wore. The Boss ballerinas are available in one size at Nordstrom Rack. She also wore the same ballerinas during the meeting withSpanish cultural scene.
