White Tweed For Spain’s Queen At ‘Rey Jaime I’ Awards
The Queen of Spain donned a white tweed dress as she presented the 29th edition of the ‘Rey Jaime I’ Awards in Valencia. While the frock was a timeless classic, many were not enthralled by the shiny silver belt Letizia chose to accessorise with.
Queen Letizia presented a number of professors and scholars with the award, which aims to unite research, science and businesses across Spain to promote development. The Queen in her speech during the event said that she was confident “that knowledge, science, education, culture, innovation…is what will continue to lead us to the place where, each one from his responsibility, we will continue to grow as a country in a better and fairer Spain”.
Usually, both the King and Queen present these awards, however King Felipe VI has cancelled all his public engagements for the week due to the Catalonia crisis (where, in response to Catalonia’s parliament declaring independence from Spain, the Spanish government dissolved the parliament and called for snap elections).Spain
