A video game called ‘Eraser’ has also been created, which shows what the world would be like in 2030 if there was no critical thinking, and in which participants have to find ways to identify fake news.

Just yesterday, Letizia attended a conference on mental health and the media in Madrid. 

According to local media, the mother-of-two wore a very significant outfit, The look in question, a navy blue trousers by Hugo Boss and a polka dot blouse by Carolina Herrera was one she first wore in 2018 during a Easter Mass in Majorca. 

During the same event, a video that became viral in 2018 showed there were some ‘tension’ between Queen Letizia and her mother-in-law Queen Sofia.

The two women apparently had a spat over a photograph on the steps of the Palma Cathedral. 

Spanish media suggested Queen Letizia decision to recycle the look might now have been totally innocent, and might have been a tiny reminder of the ‘uncomfortable’ incident aimed at her mother-in-law. 

Yesterday’s event, which was organised by the Spanish Mental Health Confederation brought journalists, communication experts and people with mental health issues together to discuss how the subject is reported in the media.

During the conference a style guide was presented, featuring examples of good practice when reporting on mental health.
