Queen Letizia of Spain looked smart as she dressed down in a trench coat and trainers on a visit to Roncesvalles in Navarra today.  

She was joined by her husband King Felipe VI to mark the occasion of the Jacobean Year.

A Jacobean Year takes place when the 25th of July, Saint James’ Day, falls on a Sunday, and usually falls in a 6, 5, 6, 11 year pattern. 

The Spanish royal donned a beige trench coat and practical trainers for outing, which she paired with matching light linen trousers and a white shirt.

Mother-of-two Letizia, 48, wore her long, dark brunette tresses swept back from her face in a ponytail that revealed a pair of small hoop earrings.  

The royal couple carried pilgrim walking sticks with the sea shell strung onto them – a symbol of the Camino de Santiago – as they joined fellow walkers along the popular route.

She wore a simple slick of makeup, with just a dash of bronzer and a mascara and prioritised Covid safety precautions on her visit by covering her mouth and nose with a protective white face mask.
