As for her makeup, the queen of Spain opted for elegant glam, choosing subtle brown smokey eyeshaddow, warm bronzer and pink lipstick.

Her teenage daughters were the image of their royal mother and looked every inch as beautiful. 

Princess Leonor matched her mum in white trousers but added a soft baby blue blazer. Meanwhile, her sister, Infanta Sofia wore an elevated white jacket with black edging and a pair of navy blue jeans.

The sisters share an exceptional bond

The sisters chose the same subtle pink lipgloss and gentle brushes of mascara, enhancing their natural beauty as they beamed for the camera.

The princesses clearly have an exceptional bond and couldn't have looked closer in the family snaps, one of which saw them arm in arm in front of the ornate fountain featured on the royal grounds.
