Much too casual!
When she gets it right, she shines. But the sky high heels and blouse are a big miss.

Especially the shoes are ways off the path.
The skirt is very nice, but I dont like the top, too, although its when it comes to the color, fitting. But something more decent would have been better, I think.

I corrected my post, it looks as if Felipe met the PM on his own. So it was Westminster Abbey & the Spanish embassy.

The one place in the U.K. you want to err on the side of caution, tradition and respect. I thought after the decent start yesterday things would be ok but now I'm seeing Letizia paying her "respects" in Westminster Abbey in unevenly rolled up sleeves, sloppily undone buttons to the point where one more undone button would be indecent and sky high heels.

At least she could be bothered to do something with her hair, which is more than can be said for a lot of her engagements in Spain. And Felipe is dressed impeccably.

How I completely agree with you, this is a professional woman and most of the time she dresses so unprofessional for the event. Just because she is Queen of Spain does not mean she should dress however she feels, this woman is representing her country and leaves a lot to be desired by her clothing choices. She is not a *Tourist* for goodness sake!

I agree. Epic fail at Westminster Abbey for Letizia.

I would say especially because she is queen of Spain.

I like the outfit, but agree that it is inappropriate for the occasion. Her hair looks great!

Red outfit - Amazing! She wore it so well IMO but a bit underdressed for parliaments visit.
I very much agree with that yellow outfit, to me it look like playing dress up from mom's closet. And what are those things on the bottom of that outfit, like cut outs from well worn fabric attached to the coat and dress. Maybe if the dress had those cutouts and the coat was the same length as the dress and all a person could see was the bottom of the dress occasionally peeking out behind the coat it would be nice........this was a disaster for a state visit.

The red was okay, not sure about the top part as there was lots of fabric there and the collar seemed to puffy to me. The color on her was perfect, that is her color anytime. I did not like the belt buckle or the things at the top of her dress, it was just okay not great.

Today's outfit to Westminster Abbey was very nice - we've seen this type of outfit before with a skirt and blouse combination and the sleeves rolled up, but at what specific events I cannot recall.
I think it's fine for a "working" engagement, say a meeting or a conference, but I agree with others that for a visit to a church it is maybe a little casual.

Come on, Eleanor of Castile was a queen who lived in the 13th century, and, as far as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is concerned, Queen Letizia showed proper decorum. She was wearing a skirt and long sleeves.

The sleeves were not rolled up. If you look at pictures of her in this look in Italy and Florida you will see the same. It's just the detail of the sleeves.

Letizia looks lovely. The skirt is beautiful and the top is a lovely match.


This was a tour if a church not a church service. It didn't require formal wear. On a warm summer day, a coat would be over kill. And gloves in hot weather gives off the 'commoners have leprosy' vibe. I know it is tradition with the older ladies, but not one I don't hate seeing go. Everyone loves comparing to Sofia. If you look at Sofia when touring a church and not at service, she has even been known to wear pants. The epitome of Spanish queen to some here.

Spanish royals also very rarely wear hats. And you could argue it's actually more polite no hat. In many churches, unless a veil, hats aren't proper.

She has looked fine on this trip. The church visit was not a service I think she was dressed alright nothing revealing or too short.

Lovely outfit, the skirt is very pretty and the shoes are great, so much better than the open sandals yesterday.

I don't like it, the top doesn't seem to fit well and doesn't combine well with that skirt.
It isn't horrible, just blah.

Not a fan of the top...I really like the skirt and shoes...but the top seems out of place.
