Queen Letizia of Spain once again showcased timelessly elegant style as she received the Rio 2016 medalists at El Pardo Palace in Madrid alongside her husband, King Felipe VI on 28 September.
The monarch opted for a chic long-sleeved white dress by her favourite Spanish designer, Felipe Varela, which highlighted her svelte physique.
The custom-made piece was adorned with a subtle floral embellished neckline and cinched in at the waist to ensure a flattering cut. Letizia completed the resplendent look with some open-toe satin nude heels and wore her brunette hair in a sleek straight style.
Her husband Felipe, 48 – whom she wed in an idyllic ceremony in the Spanish capital in 2004 – looked equally stylish in a dapper navy suit and bright red tie and almost stole the limelight from his wife with the addition of a beard.
The royal coupled looked happier than ever as they received the winners from the Paralympic games in their home during a celebratory reception.
They were joined by Felipe's sister Princess Elena of Spain for the ceremony. Elena wore a smart casual look of a red blazer with navy trousers for the occasion, tied together with a red floral necklace, though she appeared to have attained an injury as she wore cast on her right arm.
Spain won a total of 31 medals during the Rio 2016 Paralympics – eight of them being gold, 14 silver and nine bronze – so it's no wonder the royals were in an upbeat mood.
Letizia and Felipe enjoyed a summer break in Mallorca earlier this year with their two daughters – Leonor, 10, and Sofia, nine – spending time in the tranquil grounds of Marivent Palace. It's been all go for the royal couple on their return as they have conducted several solo public appearances, with Letizia attending a cancer research event in Barcelona just last week.
