There is the reason for Queen Elizabeth’s love to bright colors. It was said that she chooses vibrant garments to stand out from the crowd. It is a way to differentiate the Queen from the commoners.


The hats are thought to be an old tradition that is prohibiting women to show their hair, which Elizabeth still follows.

Queen Letizia’s outfits of choice are less vibrant but still very classy. The 46-year-old can be regularly spotted at royal events looking impeccably dressed. She is arguably one of the best-dressed royals on the planet, giving Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle a run for their money.

Her wardrobe is a mix of tailored trouser suits and feminine summer dresses. Letizia’s approach to royal dressing is very modern, but she never loses her elegance.

Who is Queen Letizia?

Queen Letizia was born to a middle-class family and before her marriage to Felipe, Prince of Asturias, she was a journalist and news anchor. The couple married in 2004 and raises two daughters, 12-year-old Leonor and 11-year-old Sofia.


As Princess of Asturias, Letizia became a representative of her father-in-law, King Juan Carlos, in Spain and abroad. After his abdication in 2014, Felipe and Letizia became King and Queen of Spain.


Letizia, just like Meghan, is a divorcee who married into the royal family. She wedded a writer and high school teacher Alonso Guerrero Pérez in 1998 and divorced him the following year.

Just recently, on 22th of May, Queen Letizia and King Felipe celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary. Their wedding came as a big surprise to many as the couple has been dating for a year in secret.

They wedded in 2004 in a beautiful ceremony that took place in Madrid's Almudena Cathedral. The wedding dress, designed by 87-year-old Spanish couturier, looked stunning and elegant, just like the Queen herself. Prince Charles, as well as Swedish royalty, were among the many guests at the wedding.

What do you think, is Queen Letizia the most stylish royal?
