Queen Letizia of Spain looked chic in a tweed blazer and white trousers as she attended a university course in Complutense University, Madrid on Tuesday. In spite of the soaring temperature, the 43-year-old Spanish royal participated in the course as part of her role of special ambassador for nutrition for United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). She attended a special course on hunger at the university’s San Lorenzo del Escorial campus outside the Spanish capital.
The UN ambassador attended the course as part of the university’s summer courses. The FAO works to tackle hunger around the globe. The Spanish made her appearance along without her husband King Felipe VI. She sat next to Pablo Saavedra, the Spanish secretary of state for environment, and Carlos Andradas Heranz, the university’s president during the talk.
Letizia looked stunning in a tailored blue and white blazer with fitted trousers. Her boucle blazer is by her go-to Spanish designer Felipe Varela. It featured long sleeves, oversize pockets with navy trims, tweed texture and ombre-style effect.
Letizia paired the blazer with white tailored trousers. The mother-of-two paired her outfit with a white tank top underneath. She added height to her tall frame in a pair of nude patent court shoes, accessorized with small earrings and carried a black bag.
The queen wore minimal makeup with a hint of mascara and a slick of glossy pink lips. Letizia’s highlighted short hair was left loose in a side part and styled in natural waves. The Spanish royal is known for her flawless sartorial style.
Letizia was named as the FAO’s special ambassador for nutrition in June 2015. She has since then made it a point to highlight the benefits of a Mediterranean diet. She is involved in raising awareness about global hunger and helping drive support around the world to help the problem in her capacity of FAO ambassador.
According to Letizia the Mediterranean diet is “the best example of healthy and sustainable eating.” She has also emphasized the need of ensuring good nutrition for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and for young children during the first years of life. The FAO estimates that 795 million people around the world experience chronic undernourishment.
