Queen Letizia never disappoints with her perfectly put-together looks, and the royal looked as stylish as ever as she arrived at Buckingham Palace ahead of King Charles III's coronation, which will take place on Saturday 6 May. 

The Queen of Spain looked stunning in a Victoria Beckham midi dress in a striking parrot green colour, arriving for the royal family's pre-coronation reception alongside her husband King Felipe VI.

Queen Letizia's bold dress and sparkling jewels stole the show

The dress featured exaggerated puffed sleeves, with the most flattering gathered ruching at the front. 

Queen Letizia teamed the designer dress with a navy clutch bag and a pair of pointed-toe heels to match. The stylish royal is always accessorised to perfection, and the mother-of-two opted for a sparkling bow brooch, a pair of delicate silver and navy drop earrings and a matching bracelet for the royal occasion.

The 50-year-old looked so glamorous as she styled her hair in a bouncy blow-out look, with a soft smokey eye and a touch of nude lip gloss to complete the elegant ensemble.

The Coronation Crowns

St Edward's Crown


Dating back to 1661, this magnificent historical item has been used in the coronation of every British monarch since the coronation of King Charles II. The glittering crown – crafted by crown jeweller Robert Viner – features a dazzling array of rubies, sapphires, rubies, garnets, topazes, amethysts, tourmalines and aquamarines.

One of the most fascinating items in the Crown Jewels. Created in 1937, the regal crown – which is based on earlier crowns dating back to the 17th Century – was designed for the coronation of King George VI. Weighing over 1kg, the golden crown is set with over 3,000 diamonds and a plethora of precious stones including sapphires, emeralds and rubies. Elsewhere, the crown is adorned with symbols that represent the monarchy, such as a cross and a fleur-de-lis.

Queen Mary’s Crown

Made by Garrards for the 1911 coronation and commissioned by Queen Mary, the consort of King George V. This is the first time a Queen Consort’s Crown has been reused since the 18th century. In a bid to pay tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II, the Crown Jeweller has reset the piece for Camilla's coronation with the late monarch's Cullinan III, IV and V diamonds.
