Queen Letizia of Spain nailed workwear chic, p in a recycled blazer as she announced the winner of an award bestowed by a charity named after her daughter Princess Leonor in Madrid today. 

The Spanish monarch, 48, re-wore the £186 double-breasted houndstooth blazer from affordable brand Uterque to announce the winner of the Princess of Girona Foundation 2021 award – a charity set up in 2009 that aims to support young people in their professional and personal development.  

Typically stylish, Letizia paired the chic jacket with a pair of smart black culottes and matching black stiletto heels.

She first wore the double breasted blazer, which is sold-out online, in November 2019 as she joined King Felipe to board their flight to Havana for a four day trip to Cuba, and for a second time as she attended a meeting for FEDER, the Spanish Federation for Rare Diseases in January 2020.

The Spanish Queen, who wore a mask in keeping with coronavirus regulations in Spain, opted to wear her glossy hair loose for the engagement and ensured all focus was on her eyes with a splash of eye-shadow and mascara. 

Letizia kept her jewellery minimal with a just pair of simple stud earrings and a delicate ring.

During the event she heard about stories of some of the young people who were working with the foundation. 

Created in 2009, the Princess of Girona Foundation is a private civil society entity looking to promote development among youngsters.

The mother-of-two’s husband King Felipe VI is the honourary chairman of the foundation on behalf of their daughter Infant Leonor, 15, who counts Princess of Gironda among her titles and will become chairwoman after him. 

Some of its work focuses on identifying talented young people who have the potential to become role models through the foundation awards. 

The awards recognise the exemplary work of people aged 16 to 35 around the world. 

In total, five categories are represented: Scientific research, Arts and Literature, Business, Social and International Award.

Its Talent rescuers programme also works on helping young talents improve their employability and to fostering educational innovation and teacher training. 

This is the second time in a row that Letizia has opted for a monochrome this week. 

On Tuesday she looked chic as ever in an asymmetrical plaid skirt during a Madrid outing with her Felipe VI. 

The royal mother-of-two paired the skirt with a black blouse with a v-neck and black belt as she arrived at Spanish Royal Tapestry Factory as it celebrated its 300th anniversary. 

She previously wore the skirt from Massimo Dutti in October last year, when opening the Vocational Training courses for the 2020/2021 academic year.
