Cementing her status as one of Europe’s best-dressed royals, Queen Letizia just stepped out in the ultimate summer ensemble – and it has serious Kate Middleton vibes. Attending the 6th Educational Congress on Rare Diseases, the monarch teamed her fiery red culottes from Uterque with a white puff-sleeved blouse by Massimo Dutti.

VIDEO: Queen Letizia’s Sweet Summer Style
Accessorising her desk-to-daywear look with block heels and gold jewellery, the mum-of-two was a picture of poise. Keeping safe in a face covering, Letizia’s brunette tresses had been blow-dried to perfection, complimenting her natural and dewy makeup.
Queen Letizia looked so chic on Friday
When it comes to fashion, Queen Letizia is a big fan of recycling, and she first donned her vibrant culottes in 2016 to attend a Red Cross fundraising day.
As for her designer blouse, it’s clearly a firm favourite for summer, as just last year Letizia wore it on her royal tour of Spain. Tucking her elegant knit into black high-waisted trousers from Emporio Armani complete with espadrille wedges, the monarch’s monochrome look certainly made a statement.
