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.

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
