Resuming her diplomatic duties on Thursday, Queen Letizia of Spain surprised fans when she stepped out in an uncharacteristically casual look for her latest royal engagement. Taking off-duty dressing to a whole new level, the monarch made sure to wrap up warm for her meeting at the FAD headquarters in Madrid. Donning a simple back jumper, Letizia teamed her cosy knit with a tailored coat, grey checked trousers and lace-up ankle boots.
