King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain had been visiting around the country to boost up the battered economy. Their daughters Princess of Asturias Leonor and Infanta Sofia joined them whenever they can. This time the family of four visited the Extremaduran town of Mérida.
The Royal Family arrived at the National Museum of Roman Art in Mérida in the afternoon where they were welcomed by cheering wellwishers.
Spanish Royals enjoyed a brief tour of the Museum. The Museum dates back to more than 175 years. It was established as a small collection of local character that, due to the importance of the Emeritense site, grew until it rose to the status of a national museum.
Its content and activities revolve around the Roman period, which is the focus of the permanent exhibition set up at its main headquarters. Despite this, the weight of the role of Mérida at the end of Antiquity, when it occupied the role of the first capital of Spain, as well as during the Visigothic period and the beginning of the Middle Ages, mark the future aspirations of the Museum, with the creation of a new headquarters to house the collections associated with these historical periods.
After the visit to the National Museum of Roman Art, they moved through the crypt tunnel to the Roman Theater where they watched a performance of the play “Antígona” by David Gaitán.
After the play, the royal family met with the directors and actors of the play. The visit also marked the beginning of the 66th Edition of Mérida International Classical Theater Festival.
The International Classical Theater Festival in Mérida is the oldest classical theatre festival in Spain and is considered the most important of its kind. The performances of the festival’s works are held annually, during the months of July and August at the Roman Theater.
For the visit, Queen Letizia brought back her chic evening style. She was wearing her Poète Galaxy Top in Black paired with Poète Omega Skirt in Black.
We saw both the pieces in September 2019 at a meeting.
Letizia paired the look with her Macarena Alba 0 Serraje Wedges debuted in June this year during a visit to SOS Village.
Queen was carrying a black Adolfo Dominguez Vachetta Leather Mini Bucket bag. The €190 bag is currently available for €114.
After a long time, we sew Letizia’s Chanel Comète Earrings.
The Royal family spend the night in the historic town and was seen leaving in the morning of 23rd. Before leaving, they met and greeted the wellwishers waiting for them outside the hotel.
This time, Letizia was wearing her pink tweed Zara Textured sleeveless jacket that she first wore in May 2019.
Queen paired the jacket with her black Boss Tipulida stretch wool trouser.
Her ever-present Karen Hallam signature ring was not missing.
