Queen Letizia of Spain presided over the 9th European Conference “Tobacco or Health” at the IFEMA-MADRID in Madrid. The Conference was being held for the first time in Spain, organised with the Spanish Association Against Cancer in collaboration with organisations related to the fight against smoking.
This landmark event brings together experts in public health, smoking and tobacco control policies from across Europe to discuss the latest developments in the field and promote effective measures to reduce tobacco use and improve public health.
Speaking at the event, Queen Letizia said, “Where we are now, what do we know after so much scientific, social, and legislative evidence… We know that consuming tobacco and new non-combustion products causes very serious illnesses. We know that the increase in the price of tobacco reduces its consumption. We know that, in Spain, the disease costs associated with tobacco use (labour, health care, medication, disability, loss of productivity) are three times higher than the tax collection generated by the industry”.
The Queen also held a brief meeting with the members of the Scientific Committee of ECToH Madrid 2023 and with the young anti-tobacco leaders. These conferences are internationally recognized as the leading European forum for tobacco control advocates. Each ECToH is attended by the most important political leaders, scientists, researchers, those responsible for promotion, health professionals, as well as all the people strongly committed to the fight against tobacco.
Later in the day, Queen Letizia joined King Felipe for a lunch hosted at the Royal Palace of Zarzuela in the honour of the President of Brazil and the First Lady, Rosángela Lula da Silva, on the occasion of their Official Visit to Spain.
The lunch was attended by the delegates of both countries.

Now to Queen Letizia Style – Letizia was looking absolutely elegant and gorgeous in a white outfit that we have seen before.
Letizia brought back her custom-made white blouse and skirt that she first wore during the 75th edition of the “Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid” in March this year. Both pieces remain unidentified but are being reported as Palace designer creations. Letizia again wore the outfit at the opening of the Cervantes Headquarters in Los Angeles in December 2022.
This time, Letizia paired the outfit with light blue accessories. The Queen was wearing her diamond and Aqua Bulgari earrings.
Letizia was wearing her Margit slingback pumps
And carried a matching handbag.
Her Coreterno Amor Che Tutto Move Ring was not missing either.
This was Letizia’s last engagement of the week. We will find out about her schedule on Friday. But we know for sure next week Queen Letizia will be in London for the coronation of King Charles III.
