Queen Letizia looked chic in a grey suit skirt as she joined husband King Felipe to welcome the Portuguese president to Madrid.
The Spanish royal, 45, opted for a business-like ensemble as she hosted the Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa at the Royal Palace.
The mother-of-two teamed her embroidered suit skirt with a pair of blue heels, and a black clutch bag.
Her appearance today with husband Felipe, 50, comes a fortnight after footage showed a ‘tense’ exchange between her and mother-in-law Queen Sofia at Easter mass.

However, Letizia and Felipe showed no sign of any family drama as they met with President Rebelo De Sousa today.
The royal couple both flashed wide smiles for the camera, as Letizia showed off a natural make-up look for the engagement.
The pair have had a busy two weeks since the video of Letizia and Sofia, 79, having an awkward exchange emerged.
Following the furore, the family put on a united front as they visited King Juan Carlos, the father of Felipe, in hospital as he recovered from a knee operation.

Letizia and her mother-in-law were photographed smiling as they walked side-by-side, a week after the Easter mass service.
Last week, the Spanish queen also attended the International Friendship Awards in Madrid, before making a joint appearance with Felipe at the La Caixa scholarship event.
Letizia also visited a university in Andalucia on Wednesday, in a busy week of engagements as she attempted to brush off the controversy surrounding the footage filmed at Easter.

The video showed Letizia standing in front of 79-year-old Sofia, who appears to be posing for pictures with her granddaughters.
After a brief exchange, the Spanish queen seems to try to take the arm of her eldest daughter Leonor, who then shoves both her mother and grandmother’s hands aside.
Despite making waves in the Spanish media, the royal palace have not commented publicly on the incident.
Letizia, who is mother to Princess Leonor, 12, and Sofia, 10, married into the Spanish monarchy in 2004, becoming queen consort following Juan Carlos’ abdication in 2014.
