Spanish Queen Letizia has made a stylish start to the New Year in her public appearances. Not even half of January has passed and the queen has pulled another enviable ensemble from her wardrobe to present herself to the public.

In her most recent and already third engagement of 2016, Letizia donned a mauve coat as she made a visit to the Foundation Against Drug Addiction (FAD) in Madrid on Tuesday (12 January). The 43-year-old queen attended one of the regular working sessions of the organisation, of which she is the president since 2015, Spain's royal palace said in a statement.

Queen Letizia looked chic in her round-neck coat with buttons all down in the front. She wore it over a purple skirt and blazer dress, one of her most favourite formal outfits of Letizia.

The queen, who will make her first state visit to the UK in 2016 along with her husband King Felipe VI, completed her look with nude stilettos and a purple clutch. She let her blunt tresses loose and wore stonedrop earrings of matching hue purple.

For her first public appearance of the year at the annual Pascua Military ceremony, Queen Letizia donned a floor-length, straight cut black gown and a white peplum jacket by Spanish designer Felipe Varela. The former journalist wore perforated black suede pumps, pearl drop earrings and carried a clutch from Reliquia to complete the ensemble.

Letizia's second royal engagement of 2016 was a meeting with two social organisations at the palace on 8 January. She wore Hugo Boss black trouser pants but glammed it up with a black Zara cape top and Carolina Herrera red blouse. She paired her outfit with black leather pumps and accessorised herself with Links of London Hope Egg earrings, also a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge.
