Queen Letizia of Spain Very Well-Heeled!05-06-2016
Queen Letizia of Spain dons £170 patent leather stilettos for an engagement at Zarzuela Palace in Madrid.
She never looks anything but immaculate and today, Queen Letizia was no exception.
But the Spanish monarch also showed off another style skill - the ability to walk with ease in a pair of four inch stilettos.
The mother-of-two and her husband King Felipe VI met top Spanish doctors and scientists at Zarzuela Palace in Madrid today.
Letizia, 43, wore a black long sleeved top over a white knee-length skirt with black stripes.
Her hair was pulled into an elegant ponytail which showed off a pair of statement stud earrings.
And despite wearing the vertiginous Magrit patent leather 'Mila' heels, which cost $246 (£170) she strode with confidence into the room.
She completed her look with smokey eye makeup and her favourite berry lip gloss.
It followed a busy day yesterday when she and Felipe travelled to north west Spain to present a prize at the National Culture Awards.
But the hard-working royals returned to the capital for another day of business in Madrid.
The former King Juan Carlos I and his wife Sofia live in Zarzuela Palace, which was built in the 17th century.
Letizia, Felipe and their two daughters Leonor and Sofia live in another residence in the castle's grounds.
The monarch's attendance at the cultural celebration yesterday also followed a diplomatic meeting in which King Felipe VI and Letizia of Spain did their bit for Spanish-Dutch relations by welcoming Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands to the Prado.
The Spanish royals played host to Beatrix to mark the opening of a new exhibition on Dutch artist Bosch at the capital's famous art museum.
Letizia and her husband cut a glamorous sight on the steps of the Prado, appearing to coordinate their outfits by opting for navy suits with lively blue patterns.
Letizia led the way in a formal but glamorous navy faux crocodile skin jacket and fitted pencil skirt in the same fabric. She sported a pattered blue and cream top and finished the look with a navy clutch bag and a towering pair of blue heels.
The media gathered as the couple met the Princess, who was returning to the Spanish capital no longer Queen of Holland after abdicating in April 2013, close to the museum's entrance.
Felipe and Princess Beatrix have worked together on bringing the work of famous Dutch artist Jheronimus Bosch to the Prado and looked happy to be once again in each other's company.
The exhibition commemorates the fifth anniversary of the death of 'El Bosco', as he's known in Spain, who's widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of the Renaissance.
It's been a glamorous couple of weeks for Letizia, who last week paid a visit to Penelope Cruz, who has been filming a new comedy-drama, La Reina De España, in the city.
The 43-year-old monarch appeared on great terms with Penelope as the actress showed her around the Madrid set earlier this month, appearing deep in conversation as they discussed the shoot.
The royal visit was a fantastic way to boost morale on set and was thoroughly enjoyed by all, according to HOLA! magazine.
Penelope's co-star Jorge Sanz is believed to have arranged the visit as he is on friendly terms with the Queen.
He told told the publication: 'She loves Spanish cinema. There was much laughter and joy on set.'
