Queen Letizia showcased her fashion prowess once again when joining her husband King Felipe VI as they kicked-off their two-day state visit to Sweden with a lavish reception.
The royal couple arrived at the Residence of the Embassy of Spain on Tuesday to speak with Spanish residents living in the country.
Mother-of-two Letizia, 49, donned an asymmetrical white dress with snake print shoes and a matching clutch bag, while Felipe, 53, appeared equally polished for the visit in response to an invitation from the King of Sweden.
The trip comes less than a week after the couple held a glittering state banquet in honour of the Italian President Sergio Mattarella’s visit to Spain.

Today, Letizia opted for an elegant white dress with a cinched waist to emphasise her enviable figure.
The mother-of-two completed the look by wearing her glossy brunette hair with a centre parting.
She accessorised with earrings from Karen Hallam, alongside heels and clutch from Spanish brand Magrit.
King Felipe teamed a black suit with a red tie and off-white shirt for an equally dashing look.
Travelling from the Adolfo Suárez Madrid Barajas Airport, the Spanish royals were accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Minister of Science and Innovation, as well as the Secretary of State for Commerce.

They later arrived at the Residence of the Embassy of Spain in Sweden, where Felipe addressed the Spanish residents, saying: ‘All of you, those of you who have been here longer and those who are still looking for your place in this new host country, we would like to send you a message of support, as you represent, outside of our borders, much of the best of our country.’
He added: ‘We are certain that you demonstrate not only your ability to work and commitment, but also your tenacity and ingenuity, as well as your excellent training.’
The Spanish community in Sweden has grown at a sustained rate in the last decade, and up to 37.12 per cent in five years, as Spaniards emigrate to take advantage of job opportunities.

Letizia and Felipe are expected to attend an official welcome ceremony at the Royal Palace in Stockholm tomorrow.
The busy day will also include a visit to the Nobel Museum where they will tour the exhibition ‘Synapse. Art and science of Spain. From Ramón y Cajal to our days.’
This will then be followed by a visit to the Parliament of Sweden and a dinner the King of Sweden is holding in their honor.
Their busy state trip is expected to end on Thursday, after a series of engagements including a lunch offered by the president of the Citizen Council and the mayor of Stockholm in their honour.
