At the morning event, Queen Letizia chose to bring back her Hugo Boss Dechesta Plaid Sheath Dress.
We first saw the dress in March 2019 and since then Letizia has worn it many times.
Letizia teamed up the dress with her black Prada Saffino leather pumps.
The Queen was wearing her Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings and
Karen Hallam ring.
Princess Leonor chose to repeat her Vogana dress with her Carolina Herrera pumps. Leonor wore this dress first in June this year at the 7th anniversary of King Felipe’s proclamation. Thanks to letizia_de_princesa_a_reina on Instagram for the ids.
