King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain today were in the front row of International diplomacy as the host for world leaders and their partners who are currently in Madrid, Spain for the 32nd NATO summit. The Royal duo hosted a dinner for the leaders and their partners.
The Royal couple hosted the President of the United States, France, British, Canadian, Australia, and New Zealand Prime Minister among other heads of various member states and some close allies at the Royal Palace of Madrid – traditionally the official residence of Spanish Monarch now being used as only for state ceremonies.
One of the largest in-use Palaces of Europe, The Royal Palace of Madrid was decorated to its nine for the event showcasing the Royal splendor. The Royal couple stood in the Throne room of the Palace where one by one the leader was arriving to meet them before the dinner. Addressing the gathering at the Dinner table, King Felipe said, “Never before has this Palace embraced and seated such a large number of top World Leaders at a time. This is not the first time −however− these walls and tapestries have witnessed a NATO gathering of this nature… Precisely because it is the Summit on NATO’s future, and it takes place under the backdrop of a war in Europe with pervasive global consequences, this Summit is very much set to go down in history. The Alliance has chosen Spain as the place in which to write its new chapter, destined to help us sail into the future and across these unchartered and uncertain waters. “

For the evening, Queen Letizia decided to wear a simple yet very suitable outfit.
Letizia was wearing her black 2nd Skin Co dress that she debuted in October 2021 at the Princess of Asturias awards.
The Queen paired the outfit with Cartier twin bracelets and Chanton earrings from the ‘Joyas de Pasar’ collection – a jewel collection that has been passed to Spanish Queens for generations.
She was wearing her black Manolo Blahnik pumps.
On Wednesday and Thursday, as King Felipe will be busy undertaking various engagements and world leaders will be busy discussing international diplomacy, Queen Letizia will be the Royal tour guide for the companions and partners of State heads and will visit the Royal Palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso, The Royal Glass Factory of La Granja and Reina Sofía National Art Center Museum with them.
