Queen Letizia has been spotted on her third public outing of the week and she has rocked her most glamorous look of all. 

The Spanish royal, 52, was spotted wearing a dazzling slinky black top, the 'Pailette Jumper' from Carolina Herrera's Fall/Winter 2016 Collection, covered in sparkles.

King Felipe's wife paired the slim-fit top with a pair of high-waisted wide-leg trousers also by Carolina Herrera which had a thick waistband for a super snatched look. 

To keep in with the classically glamorous all-black ensemble, the royal opted for a pair of squared-off pointed-toe heels in patent leather by Massimo Dutti. Adding another touch of sparkle was her clutch. Letizia held the 'Pilgrim Tube Black Satin Clutch' from Roger Vivier which had an oversized diamanté-adorned buckle.

Rounding off Letizia's outfit was a pair of dainty drop earrings covered in diamonds. The Queen wore her newly transformed quiet luxury bob in soft loose curls whereas on her previous two engagements of the week she had worn the style slick and straight. 

The mother-of-two's makeup was seamless and sparkly. She wore her usual soft rosy brown hues on her eyelids with an extra touch that she doesn't normally wear - a bronzey gold eyeshadow blended underneath to make her eyes pop.
