It’s Queen LeTITCHIER! Spanish royal is dwarfed by giant basketball stars

Queen Letizia was dwarfed by the Spanish basketball team tonight as she joined her husband to honour the stars following their victory at the Basketball World cup yesterday. 

Letizia, 47, greeted members of the basketball team who towered above the petite royal as they proudly displayed their medals at Zarzuela Palace in Madrid. 

The Spanish royal opted for a stylish A-line red dress and added height to her 5ft5 frame with matching slingback heels – but still appeared small in comparison to the statuesque players. 

Joined by husband King Felipe VI of Spain, the chic royal admired the basketball team’s gold trophy which looked enormous compared to her slight frame.

It comes just a day after the mother-of-two celebrated her 47th birthday, which she shares with Prince Daniel of Sweden, and Prince Harry.  

The Queen went for a natural make-up look and wore her hair down and loose during the official affair as she smiled and laughed with her husband, 51. 

The King, who was dressed in his signature pinstripe suit, tried on one of the player’s gold medals, after the basketball team reigned victorious at the world cup in China.

Keeping the look simple, Letizia opted for an accessory-free look, letting her statement dress draw attention.
