Making the journey to County Durham where she visited the Francisco de Zurbaran art collection – Jacob and His Twelve Sons – Letizia certainly made a stylish entrance at the royal engagement. Stepping out in a ravishing red dress complete with a black tailored coat, patent heels and a cherry red clutch, the 49-year-old was a picture of sophistication.

Sweeping her brunette tresses into a half-up-half-down style that showcased her glittering earrings, the Spanish royal opted for a fresh-faced and dewy makeup look. Combining a brown smokey eyeshadow with a touch of mascara, rosy blusher and a nude lip, the mum-of-two looked absolutely stunning. 

In a sweet moment, the Prince of Wales welcomed Queen Letizia to Auckland Castle with a kiss on her hand and cheek. The Spanish royal's appearance marks her first time in the UK since attending the Duke of Edinburgh's memorial service, held at Westminster Abbey in March.

A symbolic gesture, it was a fitting way to remember the Queen's late husband as the colour was used over the years for his staff liveries and private cars, including the driving carriage at his funeral last April.

The shade could also celebrate his long-standing association with the Rifles Regiment, who wear a green uniform. Philip had been Colonel-in-Chief of the Regiment from 2007 until 2020 when he handed over the role to daughter-in-law Duchess Camilla.
