Dressed to impress, Queen Letizia of Spain resumed her royal duties on Thursday as she attended the act of commemoration of the festivity of San Juan in Madrid. Recycling a ravishing red dress for the occasion, the monarch certainly turned heads in her fitted frock by Salvatore Ferragamo – and we've found the perfect lookalike!

Reduced to £47 in the sale, Whistles is selling this strikingly similar design (which is also available to shop through John Lewis). Fitted with all the hallmarks of a classic shirt style, the tie belt creates a figure-flattering silhouette that's both chic and comfortable. An all-rounder perfect for all seasons, team it with your favourite sandals in the summer or add knee-high boots on those cooler days.

Presiding over the ceremony, Letizia polished off her desk-to-daywear ensemble with ruby droplet earrings and an elegant pair of nude slingback stilettos. As for her hair and makeup, the mum-of-two swept her hair into a low chignon, rocking a brown smokey shadow and long, voluminous lashes. 

Eagle-eyed fans might remember Letizia's outfit from her 2019 appearance at a safe schools conference in Palma. Pictured at the Palacio de Congresos de Palma de Mallorca, the monarch first accessorised her dress with snakeskin heels and a coordinating clutch bag – so glam.

Queen Letizia loves to experiment with bold colours

Letizia's summer wardrobe often inspires fans, and last week she stepped out in yet another bold look. Wearing a bespoke midi dress from Moisés Nieto, the 48-year-old attended the Order of the Civil Merit ceremony at the Royal Palace alongside King Felipe and their daughters, Princesses Leonor and Sofia. 

Delivering a masterclass in colour-blocking, Letizia paired her designer frock with contrasting red and green droplet earrings, as well as her Caroline Herrera slingback heels.
