Queen Letizia Chic For Diplomatic Corps Reception

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia hosted the annual New Year reception for the Diplomatic Corps at the Royal Palace in Madrid.

The King and Queen were received by the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, Arancha González Laya.

During a speech, King Felipe VI touched on the recent inauguration of President Joe Biden. "In the United States a new presidency has begun its mandate a few days ago. I want to congratulate its newly inaugurated president. We trust that, together with the new administration, we will continue to strengthen deep historical ties that unite us and that cover the most varied fields - politics, defense, economy, culture or society. I express my best wishes for the presidency of the new president, with the conviction that our relations will be strengthened." Continuing to discuss diplomatic areas of focus, Felipe added, "Spain, by geography and by vocation, always sees the Mediterranean as a key natural space for our security and our development."

The event offered a very rare gown appearance for this month. Letizia was effortlessly chic in a blue gown she's worn previously. Letizia styled her hair in a sleek bun and completed the look with a pair of statement earrings.

The post initially suggested the gown is an Alejandro de Miguel design. That is not the case. The eagled-eyed Queen Letizia's Style (run by the fabulous Elizabeth) confirmed this. 


  1. You are right Charlotte, in my opinion the gown is beautiful.

    I do love Letizia's style! And Felipe looks amazing in his tux. That red gown is just gorgeous and regal. It would be perfect for her.

  3. So enjoying all these new posts again.

  4. This is a stunning gown, it suits the Queen so well. The colour is superb. It highlights the Queens perfect posture. The red gown is sensational.

  5. Wow! That red dress is great.

    I’m so glad I branched out from just the UK Royal family - thank you Charlotte.

  6. I saw an advert on Spanish TV last week, with Queen of Spain featured in. It was emoptional and something i still think of as the most down-to-earth i've ever seen. Of course, it was a charitable cause!

  7. Fantastic to have a gown appearance for the diplomatic reception, we have to enjoy them whenever they turn up these days. I love that blue gown, and am happy for Letizia to wear it as often as she likes.It drapes beautifully on her and is so sleek and elegant while featuring little fashion twists like the single sparkly button, the high skirt slit, and the slightly fluted sleeves. It looks perfect with a sleek tight updo like this and the statement sparkly earrings are just right. Love how well the shawl collar sits and flows naturally into the button fastening and front wrap. A triumph.
