The Spanish monarch looked so glam on Friday

Cementing her status as one of Europe's best-dressed royals, Queen Letizia showcased her fashion credentials once more on Friday as she attended the opening of the Madrid Book Fair at El Retiro Park. 

Donning a statement navy pencil dress from BOSS, the Spanish monarch teamed her printed midi with a pair of fuschia croc-effect slingback pumps by Carolina Herrera and a thin black belt.

Since returning to the public eye this week, the monarch has been wowing royal fans in a number of seriously chic outfits. Heading to the first edition of the 'Retina Eco' awards in Madrid on Monday, Letizia proved that you can never go wrong with a little black dress as she rocked a slinky Bardot style from Maria Malo

Polishing off her ensemble with suede slingback pumps by Carolina Herrera and a snakeskin Magrit clutch bag, the mum-of-two also modelled a pair of gold metallic earrings from TOUS. 

Turning heads once again on Tuesday, one of our favourite looks of the week is the vintage rhinestone dress that Letizia wore to receive Chilean President Sebastian Pinera at the Royal Palace. Holding sentimental value, royal fans might remember that it had formerly belonged to Letizia's mother-in-law, Queen Sofia.
