Queen Letizia of Spain looked blooming while conducting royal duties in the Spanish capital of Madrid on Tuesday (5 July).

The 43-year-old mother of Leonor, Princess of Asturias and Infanta Sofía of Spain accompanied her husband, King Felipe VI, to the Iberdrola HQ where they delivered Iberdrola Foundation scholarships.

The scholarships at the Spanish electrical company aim to support the development and knowledge of renewable energy, environmental protection and energy efficiency, with the total sum of the scholarship per year rising to €10,800 (£9,186).

Letizia, a former news anchor, was the epitome of summer elegance in a floaty floral print dress from popular Spanish high street store, Zara. The high-neck design, which cost £49.99 before it sold out, fell just below the knee and featured a vibrant pink botanical print which complemented her rosy cheeks.

Putting her trademark tailoring and sharp dresses to one side as the temperature soared, the royal stylishly accessorised the feminine dress with simple nude patent court shoes by Prada and a bright pink clutch. She finished off the fresh summer look with dewy natural make-up and glamorous drop earrings.

The couple – who married at a Madrid cathedral in an idyllic ceremony in 2004 – looked more in love than ever as they exchanged private jokes and giggled during the ceremony.

They later posed for a group photograph with employees of Iberdrola outside the company's building during the event, which marks the tenth anniversary of the scholarships programme.
