King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain are spending the month of August at the Balearic Island. The family usually lives at their Summer residence Marivent Palace for a couple of weeks and undertake few engagements before spending some time away from the public eye.
Today the Royal couple undertook another tour of the Island and visited Menorca. King Felipe and Queen Letizia visited the capital Mahón and Ciutadella on the island of Menorca.
Menorca (also called Minorca) is one of Spain’s Balearic islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Menorca is known for its endless beaches, from miles-long sandy crescents to rocky, turquoise-watered bays called “calas” and Pine trees fringed coast.
The island is another favourite tourist spot with its neighbour islands of Mallorca and Ibiza.
The first stop of the day was the Cooperativa Insular Ganadera – Coinga. Cooperative, which was founded in 1966, is made up of 80 farms and associates and is a benchmark for Mahón-Menorca Cheese made with Mahón cow’s milk with a careful preparation and curing process, which gives it excellent quality with Denomination of Protected Origin.
The couple met with the staff and learned about the production routine.

Next, they headed towards Ciutadella to visit the collective funeral monument Naveta des Tudons – a famous tourist spot highlighting the Talayotic culture of Menorca and dated between the 8th and 13th centuries.
Its peculiar shape of an inverted ship gives it its name and when it was restored – in the middle of the 20th century – remains of at least 100 individuals and objects of the time were found.
From there, Felipe and Letizia walked towards the Plaza del Ayuntamiento de Ciutadella to the port, where they shared a lunch with the Balearic authorities who have accompanied them on this visit through the Menorcan towns of Mahón and Ciutadella.
The couple received a warm welcome during the visit.
Locals were waiting for the royal couple and Felipe and Letizia stopped for quick selfies much to the delight of many members of the public.
White has always been Queen Letizia’s favourite colour, but the month of August is the time of the year when it dominates Queen’s wardrobe choices.
Today, Queen Letizia wore a White Embroidered Organza Dress from Spanish label Uterque.
The €129 dress is described as, “The collection is full of life and attention to detail, achieving unique products. The colours are inspired by the subdued and unpredictable nature.”
Made of a high quality embroidered organza fabric, the midi dress features ruffle strap construction, straight top bodice with stretch smock construction and front placket opening with covered buttons.
It is currently available in all sizes on the online store.
Letizia paired the dress with white Macarena Alba50 Cotton Crudo Espadrilles. Made with natural jute €60 wedges feature a closure with straps tied to the ankle and are handmade in Spain.
