Letizia takes style inspiration from Kate by wearing £80 Topshop skirt during UK state visit

Both Letizia and the Duchess of Cambridge are fans of the popular British high street store

On the final day of her state visit to the UK, Queen Letizia looked a picture of elegance, all while making a very down-to-earth fashion statement by choosing to wear high street label Topshop. The Spanish queen looked as fabulous as ever in her ensemble, teaming a crisp white wrap blouse featuring an asymmetric neckline, with a midi-length pleat front skirt from the renowned British brand. For footwear, the 44-year-old opted for a pair leg-lengthening LODI burgundy suede ankle strap pumps, which contrasted beautifully with her skirt, and to accessorise, she carried an embellished straw clutch from Spanish brand Suma Cruz. A pair of pearl drop earring completed her stylish ensemble.

Queen Letizia looked suitably stylish in her £80 Topshop skirt

Beauty-wise, Letizia styled her long, glossy honey-hued hair up in a relaxed half up-do, leaving the rest of her hair to hang down in loose waves. In terms of make-up, the mother-of-two worked a bold smoky eye - a look she tends to go for when out and about, outlining her large eyes with a bold outline of black liner and elongating her lashes with layers of mascara. A sweep of rose-hued blush and a semi-sheer pink gloss completed her stunning look.


Letizia is considered one of the world's most stylish royals

And it comes as no surprise that Letizia was a fan of the summer-ready number. The prom-style design, which retailed at £80, is ultra-versatile in a champagne colourway and enhanced the monarch's slim figure, sitting high on her petite waist. Unfortunately, the skirt is now sold out online, having been reduced to a purse-pinching £30 in the sale. Letizia, along with the Duchess of Cambridge, is considered one of the world's most stylish royals, and the two are often noted for their often in synch fashion choices.

Just like Letizia, Kate, who has long been renowned for her ability to mix high street and designer fashion, has also been spotted in a number of Topshop's items. During the royal tour of India and Bhutan in April 2016, Kate modelled a stunning pink Topshop dress with intricate black embroidering, and added a touch of sparkle to the look with her bargain £8 earrings from Accessorize.
