At the beginning of the year, Letizia’s first appearance was King Juan Carlos’ 80th birthday Celebration. That day she wore a grey striped blouse-styled high neck dress that belonged to Queen Sofia. Sofia wore this dress in November 1984 during an official engagement.

Today at the end of the year on her last engagement of 2018, once again Letizia brought something from her Mother-in-Law’s wardrobe. She wore a red midi dress that is believed to be from 1980. The forty-year-old dress featured high neckline, puffed shoulders, banded waistline with a pleated skirt.
