Queen Letizia dazzles at the Danish gala dinner in a Felipe Varela dress and the Fleur de Lis tiara.
The gala dinner hosted by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark at Christiansborg Palace was the central event in the state visit of King Felipe and Queen Letizia to Copenhagen.
Queen Letizia took advantage of the evening to dazzle in an impeccable gala look, crowned by emblematic jewels of the Spanish monarchy.

Queen Letizia rescued for the occasion an elegant mauve-toned ball gown by Spanish designer Felipe Varela.
She had already worn this dress at other special events, but the first time she wore it was in 2015.
For the dinner, King Felipe’s wife decided to wear Queen Sofia’s sapphire earrings, but the centerpiece was one of the best jewels in the royal jewelry box, the Fleur de Lis tiara, an important classic piece that she has worn on several occasions.
This classic tiara with Fleur de lis in diamonds was a gift from Alfonso XIII to his wife Victoria Eugenia, a symbol of Spanish royalty.
The mother of Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia debuted it in 2017 and reserves it for special occasions abroad, such as this visit to Denmark.
She completed the look with one of the twin bracelets of the Borbón jeweler and the band of the Order of the Elephant, the highest Danish decoration imposed on her by Margarita II that same morning.
King Felipe VI also wore the sash from left to right, following Danish protocol.
After posing for the photographers, the Spanish King and Queen accompanied their hostess Margarita II to a pre-dinner kissing session at the palace. Later, Felipe VI and the Danish monarch delivered speeches to the evening’s guests.
