The Queen of Spain in her fairytale dress at a dinner for the President of Peru
OK, there were some who said it was slightly too fairytale and drew comparisons with the huge blue gown worn by Cinderella in the recent film or the cartoon version from decades ago. But this was one of Letizia's most spectacular dresses, a far cry from the T-shirt style tops with full skirts she wore for so many evening events when first married, and a full on blast of glamour in the heat of a full on Spanish summer.
This dress, with its delicate top and seemingly endless skirt, is the stuff that little girls dream of and what fairytales frocks are made of. There are often comparisons made between Mary and Letizia but when it comes to princess dresses, the newest queen on the continent is still playing catch up.
