On Tuesday, Queen Letizia of Spain continued her weekly schedule with a visit to Red Cross San José and Santa Adela to celebrate the centenary of its School of Nursing and the Central Hospital at Fine Arts Centre in Madrid.
The School of Nursing and Central Hospital Red Cross celebrated its 100th birthday of service. Upon arrival, Queen was received by the Madrid Community President and Minister of Health.
The hospital was built between 1893 and 1908 and was named Casa de Salud San José and Santa Adela as a tribute to who donated the funds for its construction. Its first board of trustees was formed in 1913 by Queen Victoria Eugenia. In 1918, a Royal Decree confers the Hospital to the Spanish Red Cross.
At the Fine Arts Centre, Queen toured the facility that was hosting an exhibition commemorating the centenary of the School of Nursing and the Central Hospital of the Red Cross San José and Santa Adela.

Next Letizia watched a video presentation at centre’s Fernando Rojas theatre about the Hospital-School that included testimonies of patients and workers of the Centre.
The day ended with an act in which a student performed the basic conversational activity of the Red Cross.

For the visit, Letizia chose an outfit having her favourite colour combination – Red and White, also a colourful nod to the Red Cross. She wore a white silk-satin Banora blouse from her trusty label Hugo Boss.
Debuted in 2015, the round neck top is straight-cut in flowing silk-satin. Its carefree, delicate look is achieved by the finely pleated arrangement at the neckline and concealed button placket. Queen also owned the same model in a purple hue.
She paired it with a red Carolina Herrera skirt. Queen first wore the printed skirt in December 2017 at AECC meeting then at an audience at Palace in March this year. The skirt features white, red and black abstract print on a red base and carefully placed pleats and button detailing on one side.
