Pictured at the Casa del Lector Library where she met with the Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, the royal sported an eye-catching ensemble. Layering a white Carolina Herrera coat over a black long-sleeved top from BOSS and a Roberto Verino printed pencil skirt, the 49-year-old's outfit made a sweet nod to her daughter. 

In a sweet moment, the royal was spotted wearing her daughter Princess Leonor's coat 

Eagle-eyed fans might have spotted that Letizia had borrowed her coat from Princess Leonor. The 16-year-old had first worn the Carolina Herrera design in October 2020 while visiting Fpabrica, an old weapons factory in Oviedo. The pair have always shared a similar sense of style, so it's hardly surprising that they now share clothes. 

Accessorised to perfection, Letizia added two-tone Magrit pumps and a snakeskin-embossed handbag by Nina Ricci. Wearing her brunette tresses down in loose curls, she tucked her hair behind her ears to show off her statement hoop earrings.
