Red and white for Letizia

Queen Letizia has kept her colour range fairly limited so far this year but while blacks and greys have dominated so far, today she gave us a bit more of the few bright shades she's favoured since 2016 got under way. It was all about red and white for Letizia today.

King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain meeting school children during a visit to the Prado Museum in Madrid

The Spanish queen was visiting the Prado Museum in Madrid with King Felipe to sit in on their board meeting. The royal couple arrived with enough time to greet some schoolchildren who were also visiting the museum. King Felipe went for the regulation royal man dark coat while Letizia chose a more striking outfit in bright red. No prizes for guessing who everyone was taking photos of.

Once inside, Letizia revealed a very business like cream coloured skirt suit as she and Felipe got down to the business of the board meeting.  There was a hint of colour left as the Spanish queen had gone back to her new favourite shoes, her burgundy heels, which looked a lot better once she'd lost the coat - reds that don't match never really hit home.

Today's outfit from style icon Letizia is still pretty safe compared to some of her choices in the past but while it's carried on the muted theme of 2016 it has shown a turn towards a splash more colour in her choices.  As the weather brightens up, it seems this royal wardrobe is also getting a spring in its step.
