A vision in white, Queen Letizia surprised royal fans on Monday when she stepped out in the dreamiest midi dress – and the Duchess of Cambridge would love it. Attending the Miguel de Cervantes Literature Awards alongside King Felipe VI in Barcelona, the monarch's gorgeous frock reminded us of Kate Middleton's favourite Emilia Wickstead dress, which she owns in multiple colours.

Letizia looked so chic while attending the Miguel de Cervantes Literature Awards
A timeless and streamlined silhouette, Letizia's ivory midi is fitted with long sleeves, a figure-flattering waistband and an unusual asymmetric hem. Royal fans might recognise the dreamy design from one of Letizia's earlier royal appearances this year. Committed to recycling her wardrobe, the mum-of-two first donned her desk-to-daywear dress in February while attending the solemn opening of the 14th legislature at the Spanish Parliament in Madrid. She originally teamed it with snakeskin heels and a black Carolina Herrera cape.
