King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain arrived this Monday, November 6, in Denmark for a three-day state visit, where they will be entertained by Queen Margrethe II and the Danish royal family.
The appointment coincides with the 20th anniversary of Felipe and Letizia’s engagement and marks the resumption of bilateral relations after the pandemic.
The trip has provided a glimpse of Queen Letizia’s first elegant looks, with nods to her attire.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia in Denmark
After flying from Madrid, the King and Queen were received at Copenhagen-Kastrup airport with military honors by Margaret II, Crown Prince Frederick, and his wife Mary.
Letizia opted for a beige coat by & Other Stories, and underneath she wore a red dress by Carolina Herrera, in an outfit that paid tribute to the Danish flag.
Something that stood out from Queen Letizia’s styling was her Queen Sofia earrings with red doves.
Later, the Spanish royal couple toured the Danish capital in a horse-drawn carriage with Margaret II, greeting the citizens in Amalienborg Square.
Once at the royal palace, they posed for the official photo with the hosts, revealing Letizia’s full red dress.
This Herrera design had already been worn previously by the queen in events in Spain, as well as the red Magrit bag.
These are safe bets for when she requires elegant looks on state visits or other royal events.
Unlike the Danish women, the Spanish queen preferred to do without a hat, following the custom of her mother-in-law Sofia.
Letizia only reserves headdresses for special occasions outside Spain, such as royal weddings or state funerals in countries where protocol requires it.
After the reception, Felipe VI met with Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, before the gala welcome dinner at Christiansborg Palace.
Over the next few days, the King and Queen will continue to get to know Denmark’s culture, economy, and renewable energies, strengthening ties with the Nordic country.
