The attitude of Queen Letizia at the swearing in of the Constitution of Princess Leonor in the Congress of Deputies has generated much controversy.
The wife of Felipe VI, who wore a blue Carolina Herrera dress, has given much to talk about, and not precisely because of her choice of dress but because of her attitude, and the images speak for themselves: Letizia was angry.

From the moment she arrived at the Congress, Letizia was serious and attentive, casting cold glances around her. She was also seen to be dejected, showing little joy.
This contrasted with her more friendly and approachable attitude at previous events, such as the Princess of Asturias Awards, where she appeared more relaxed, an attitude that puzzled many.
Several Spanish media have tried to decipher what was wrong with the Queen.
Some, such as the portal Semana, attribute her behavior to nerves, especially considering her rigidity regarding protocol and the events in which her daughters participate.
Others suggest that her bad attitude is because she had a “bad night”.
There are even those who speculate that the Queen may be uncomfortable reuniting with the rest of the royal family, given the strained relations that exist between some members.
However, it is possible that her serious expression was due to her efforts to contain the excitement of seeing her daughter take the most important step in her journey as heir to the throne.
In short, Queen Letizia’s attitude during Princess Leonor’s swearing-in has been the subject of many interpretations and media attention.
Although the reasons for her behavior are not clear, it is undeniable that her gestures and expressions gave much to talk about.
In subsequent events, however, her demeanor was much more relaxed.
