Resuming her royal duties on Friday, Queen Letizia wowed in the most ravishing red dress – and fans are obsessed. Recycling a classic fit-and-flare style by one of her favourite designers, Carolina Herrera, the monarch was certainly a picture of poise as she received the Spanish Olympic Team before their trip to the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games.

Eagle-eyed fans might recognise Letizia's Carolina Herrera dress from previous royal engagements. 

Regularly recycling her wardrobe, back in 2019 the monarch donned her patriotic midi to meet with the Spanish Men's Basketball Team at the Palace of Zarzuela. Congratulating the national team on their gold medal win at the FIBA ​​World Cup in China, she added the same designer slingback heels. Opting for a more statement jewellery look, Letizia donned her Aldao Joyeros ruby cabochon and diamond droplet earrings.
