Queen Letizia suffered a relatable slip-up during her royal tour of Sweden as she dropped her clutch bag during a photo call on Thursday.

The contents of the queen's clutch bag were scattered across the floor, including what appeared to be a lipstick, as she posed for photos with her husband, King Felipe, and King Carl Gustaf XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden.

Staff rushed to her aid, but Queen Letizia kept her cool as she swiftly swept her belongings back into her bag.

The king and queen of Spain carried out a two-day state visit to Sweden this week with Letizia wowing in a number of outfits during their royal outings.

For Wednesday's state banquet, the royal mum-of-two wowed in a dark blue tulle ball gown from H&M's Conscious Collection, accessorising with Queen Ena's Fleur-de-Lis tiara.

Upon arrival, Letizia also donned a camel coat with an orange wide-sleeved dress, both by Carolina Herrera. She matched her accessories to her dress, sporting a floral headband from Cherubina.
