The Queen of Spain looked as chic as ever on Wednesday, making an unintentional fashion statement in a pair of flats. 

Queen Letizia, 51, was seen at the El Barco De Vapor and Gran Angular Youth Literature Awards in Madrid.

She wore a white power suit consisting of a cinched single-breasted jacket and fitted trousers from Victoria Beckham's chic edit with high street brand Mango.

The mother-of-two teamed the stylish co-ord with a lace-adorned silk camisole and turned heads as she walked into Real Casa de Correos wearing a pair of white trainers - the 'Geo Court III Trainers in Bright White' from Vivobarefoot.

The Queen has been swapping her go-to Magrit heels for flats as she continues to suffer with a long-term foot ailment. Spanish outlet El Mundo previously reported that the royal has chronic metatarsalgia - pain in the ball of the foot - in both of her feet, as well as Morton's neuroma in her right foot, which involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to the toes.

On Tuesday she wore her bob straight for a sleek look that showed off a pair of statement diamanté earrings. Her makeup featured a dusky pink eyeshadow blended over the eyelid with a burgundy shadow blended at the lashline to emphasize her hazel eyes.

The royal took a pair of trainers for a spin earlier in the week when she attended the EmociónArte concert by the Princess of Girona Foundation at the Royal Theater in Madrid.

She looked truly splendid in a pair of white fitted trousers with a white vest top, dressed up with the 'Quintin' blazer from Mango - a hot pink tweed style with statement gold buttons. The final addition was her white trainers from MUthebrand.

Letizia has built quite the wardrobe of chic flats in recent weeks. But this doesn't mean she has ditched heels altogether.

The royal opted for a more modest heel in terms of height when she honoured the Flag Oath at the 44th promotion of the General Military Academy alongside King Felipe. The former journalist opted for black kitten heels to accessorise a pale blue suit.

The doting royal mother kept an eye out for her daughter Princess Leonor, 18, who is currently undertaking military training at the Zaragoza Military Academy was present at the ceremony.

That evening Princess Leonor and her parents celebrated the occasion with a dinner at Aura restaurant in Zaragoza. While the young royal was seen still wearing her military uniform, her mother swapped her daytime suit for a gorgeous evening gown - a black V-neck midi dress from H&M's Conscious Collection from 2018.
