Queen Letizia of Spain looks sombre beside King Felipe at Barcelona attacks ceremony
Queen Letizia of Spain looked sombre beside her husband King Felipe today at the first anniversary ceremony of the Barcelona attacks.
The Spanish royal and former news anchor was pictured among crowds of people attending the remembrance ceremony.
The devastating attack, where a van rammed into crowds in Las Ramblas, left 16 people dead.
Letizia wore a black and grey houndstooth tweed print blouse for the tragic anniversary.
She paired her blouse with a pair of floor skimming wide leg black trousers with a pleat at the front.
She had on her feet a pair of high black pointed stiletto heels which added height to her petite frame.
Her straight brown hair was parted in the middle and tucked behind her ears.
Her makeup was left simple and minimal: a nude lip and a hint of dark eyeliner and mascara.
In one hand Letizia carried a black leather handbag with gold detailing and a stiff black handle.
Jewellery wise, she wore just a simple pair of pearl stud earrings and her wedding ring.
Queen Letizia and her husband Felipe both looked glum among the crowds, as befitted the occasion.
They both shook hands with Barcelona’s mayor Ada Colau during the ceremony to pay tribute to the victims of the attacks a year ago.
They were accompanied at the occasion by both Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Spanish Lower Chamber’s Speaker Ana Pastor.
At a very different occasion earlier this month, Queen Letizia stepped out in Mallorca with her husband and children.
She was there for the Spanish royal family’s annual summer holiday. She spent a week enjoying dinners out and relaxing days with her husband King Felipe and two daughters, Princess Leanor and Elena.
Joining her husband Felipe for a meeting with the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and his wife Maria Begona Gomez, she wore a stunning vibrant red dress.
Embodying the heat of the island, the elegant dress was whimsical and floaty, covered in red and pink floral print.
The kimono-style dress came to just below the stunning queen’s knees, showing off her toned, tanned legs.
Tied at the waist with a belt, the attire showed off the 45-year-old’s slender physique.
The wrap-around dress featured a plunging neckline, adding a more sultry, alluring touch to the floral, summery attire.
