She is known for her love of colour and bold fabrics, but Queen Letizia proved she can also look stylish in a classic workwear look as she attended a meeting today.
The Spanish queen, 45, looked sleek and sophisticated in a charcoal grey suit and black trench coat for the engagement in Madrid – her second royal outing of 2018.
She added an edgy twist to the look with her footwear, opting for a trendy pair of black patent leather booties with mesh detailing.

Letizia kept a low-profile over Christmas and New Year, which she spent with her husband, King Felipe, 49, and their daughters, Princesses Leonor, 12, and Sofia, 10.
The family made their return to public duties last Saturday, where they attended the Epiphany Day celebrations with King Felipe’s father, King Juan Carlos, who abdicated from the throne in 2014.
