Queen Letizia of Spain showcased her trendsetting sense of style as she visited Residencia de Estudiantes ‘Students Residence’ in Madrid today.

The mother-of-two, 48, presided over the meeting of the highest governing body of the institution, whose Honorary Presidency is held by her husband King Felipe.

She cut an elegant figure in a floral blouse with statement frill sleeves which she paired with white trousers during the outing.  

Meanwhile she recycled her espadrille heels from Macarena, which cost 65 euro, to complete the sophisticated summer’s outfit.

Queen Letizia, who wore a face mask throughout the visit, gave the illusion of being almost natural as she opted for very minimal makeup.

She completed the look by styling her glossy brunette hair with a centre-parting, while sweeping it behind her ears for a regal appearance.

Accessories were kept to a minimum, with the royal wearing an oversize ring on one finger along with small gold hoop earrings.

The mother-of-two appeared in good spirits throughout the visit as she stood in the centre for a group photograph.

Queen Letizia was joined by figures from the board of trustees, which includes the Minister of Education and Vocational Training as well as the Minister of Science and Innovation.

Since its foundation in 1910, the Students Residence has provided a suitable environment for students at university to support their education. 

In 1915, director Alberto Jiménez Fraud, made it an open house for creation, thought and interdisciplinary dialogue.

Prominent figures have emerged from the institution including poet Federico García Lorca, the painter Salvador Dalí, the filmmaker Luis Buñuel and the scientist Severo Ochoa.

The unique centre is key to Spain’s cultural life and organises events throughout the year including conferences, exhibitions and workshops.

Leading experts in the Arts and Sciences as well as scholars and artists are often involved in the events in the hopes of sparking creativity and debate.

The Students Residence also hosts a collection of significant books and documents that are important to Spain’s history. 

It comes amid a busy week for Queen Letizia, who presided over the act of commemoration of the festivity of San Juan yesterday as well as joining her husband at the delivery of the Gold Medals of Merit in Fine Arts and at a gala for the new ABC headquarters.
