Given the current mood in Spain when it comes to Royals, Queen Letizia of Spain has been avoiding premiering any new outfit. Since coming back from summer break she has been regularly repeating her wardrobe. For the audience once again she brought back another stunning dress.
She was wearing a bespoke beautiful blue printed dress from Carolina Herrera. We first saw the dress in March 2019 when Letizia visited London to inaugurate an exhibition the “Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light” at National Gallery with Prince Charles of Wales.
The floral print dress has a round neckline, three-quarter sleeves with fit and flare silhouette.
