Queen Letizia dared. The Spanish monarch appeared at an official event showing the part of her body she likes the least: her knees.
Accustomed to wearing dresses below the knee or midi cut, it is uncommon to see the queen, who turns 50 this year, wearing short clothes but this time she left the complexes aside and proudly showed off her legs.

Queen Letizia’s legs steal the show
The official event was a lunch with the president of Bulgaria Rumen Radev and his wife, Desislava Radeva. The queen chose for the engagement an outfit worthy of spring, it was a pink coat designed by Carolina Herrera.
The garment, above the knees, is baby doll style, in a pale pink tone and with floral print. It has a shirtdress and double-breasted with jewel-like jewels forming a sun with pink crystal and gold details. On her feet the queen wore pink suede pumps from Lodi.
The queen surprised with her choice of attire because since 2019 she had not shown off her legs, at least not in their entirety. In keeping with protocol, the consort adopted a more conservative look.
The Spanish press remembers with nostalgia the mini dress, design by Teresa Helbig, which she wore in 2017 for the Cerecedo Award, so this “uncovering” of the queen caused surprise.
