It comes just a week after King Felipe VI’s wife travelled to the Higher Council for Scientific Research in Madrid for the meeting with the Spanish branch of UNICEF.  

For the occasion, she sported a cosy look consisting of wardrobe staples she’s worn before, including a microfibre blue jersey and Massimo Dutti high-waisted trousers in grey check. 

The meeting aimed to discuss how to deepen the work of Spanish UNICEF both at home and worldwide.

Letizia married King Felipe 16 years ago at Cathedral Santa María la Real de la Almudena in Madrid.

The relationship began in November 2002 and in 2003, just months after she had been promoted to the position of anchor on the national news channel. 

She then quit her job and days later the royal engagement was announced.

The former newsreader is the granddaughter of a taxi driver and the eldest daughter of Jesús José Ortiz Álvarez, a journalist, and first wife María de la Paloma Rocasolano Rodríguez, a nurse and hospital union representative. 

She attended public high school and did a degree at the Complutense University of Madrid. She later gained an MA in Audiovisual Journalism at the Institute for Studies in Audiovisual Journalism.

King Juan Carlos abdicated in 2014 in favour of his son, now King Felipe VI.
