Queen Letizia Chooses Prada Pumps for First Day of U.K. Visit

All eyes are on Spanish royals King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, who are on a three-day visit to the U.K. — the first Spanish state visit there since Felipe’s father, Juan Carlos I, visited 31 years ago.

Queen Letizia is known for her fashion-forward style, so she’ll certainly be compared to the U.K.’s beloved Duchess of Cambridge during the trip. On Wednesday, Queen Letizia and King Felipe attended a formal welcoming at Horse Guards Parade in London. She opted for a pale yellow dress and matching coat by her go-to designer Felipe Varela. Letizia completed the look with a yellow fascinator, clutch and gloves, and Prada nude pumps.

She has often worn Prada’s pointed-toe pump style in black patent leather, but the nude fits well for the occasion.

In the procession from Buckingham Palace, where the Spanish royals are staying, Letizia rode in a horse-drawn carriage with the Duke of Edinburgh, while Felipe arrived with Queen Elizabeth II. This will be one of the Duke of Edinburgh’s last formal engagements before he retires in August. As for her look, Queen Elizabeth II stood out in a fuchsia coat and her favored Anello & Davide horsebit loafers.
