Queen Letizia exudes stylish glamour in burgundy leather as she greets her mother-in-law Sofia at the monarch’s Alzheimer’s charity foundation event in Madrid

Queen Letizia lived up to her glamorous-yet-regal reputation as she arrived at the Reina Sofia Alzheimer Foundation 40th anniversary celebrations in Madrid on Monday.

The 44-year-old royal exuded stylish elegance in a buttoned-up burgundy leather peplum jacket, paired with a crisp white pencil skirt and towering heels.

Her mother-in-law, former Queen Sofia, who is patron of the charitable foundation, chose a sartorial blue patterned two-piece skirt suit for the occasion, finished off with a complementary azure necklace.

The royal pair greeted each other warmly as they arrived at the foundation centre.

The family, including King Felipe and former King Juan-Carlos, all attended the day celebrating the longevity of the charity and its important research work.

King Felipe looked dapper in a suit as he hugged his parents before embarking on the informative day.

King Juan-Carlos, who abdicated to allow his son to take over his duties as King, was also in attendance and posed for pictures sporting an eye-catching orange tie.

The Reina Sofia Alzheimer Foundation was founded 40 years ago as one of the former Queen’s many social and welfare initiatives.

She is Executive President of the Queen Sofia Foundation, while also being the honorary president of the ‘Foundation for Aid against Drug Addiction’ and the ‘Royal Board for Handicapped Persons’, and heading up the ‘Queen Sofia College of Music’.

The royals looked at a model of the foundation buildings and heard about its plans for the future.

Letizia, who previously worked as a journalist and news anchor, now dedicates her time to a portfolio of causes in representation of the royal family.

Wearing a dash of deep red lipstick to match her statement jacket, the beautiful Queen wore her brunette tresses poker straight over her shoulders.

Just last week the Spanish royal family gathered again for the first Communion of Queen Letizia and King Felipe’s younger daughter Princess Sofia, 10.

The family couldn’t have looked prouder as they joined Princess Sofia for the Communion at the Asuncion de Nuestra Senora Church in Madrid.

Resplendent in a mint green coat dress, Queen Letizia gazed fondly at her youngest daughter as they posed for photos outside the church on a sunny Wednesday morning.

Like her sister, Princess Leonor, Princess Sofia was taking part in the ceremony alongside her classmates in a parish church – a move that broke with royal tradition.

A major social occasion for the Spanish crown, royals traditionally take their first Communion alone at the Palacio Real in Madrid, with nobody else receiving the sacrament at the same event.

The Communion was, nevertheless, a family affair with King Felipe, Letizia’s grandmother Menchu del Valle, Letizia’s mother, Paloma Rocasolano, Konstantin of Bulgaria, Princess Leonor, King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia and Letizia’s father, Jesus Jose Ortiz, all joining the young lady on her big day.

Princess Sofia proudly wore her school uniform, whilst her big sister, who is heir to the throne and was a guest on her sister’s big day, looked chic in a pleated pastel blue dress and matching Pretty Ballerinas blue pumps.

Queen Letizia, who never puts a sartorial foot wrong, looked chic in an embroidered coat dress, which her husband matched his tie to.

Meanwhile, the Queen’s glamorous mother, Paloma, displayed her trim figure in a fitted white suit offset with silver heels.

The two young girls co-ordinated their hairstyles, plumping for half-up, half-down braided ‘dos – a look their mother often favours.

The whole family were also recently seen together when they celebrated Easter mass in Mallorca last month.

It is one of the biggest celebrations in the Catholic calendar and the Spanish Royal Family kept up their tradition of spending the Easter holiday on the island of Mallorca.

King Felipe, Queen Letizia and their daughters, Princess Sofia and Princess Leonor, made for the picture-perfect family as they arrived at Palma cathedral on the Balearic isle along with Queen Sofia.

It was the first time that Princess Leonor, 11, and Princess Sofia, nine, have been spotted at a public engagement for several months; they are on the island for the family’s annual holiday at the Marivent Palace royal holiday residence.

Hundreds of well-wishers were keen to catch a glimpse of the young princesses as they clambered over each other to snap a photo of the young royals on their camera phones.
