Queen Letizia of Spain looked effortlessly elegant as she attended a meeting in Madrid today.
The 48-year-old mother of two was accompanied by AECC President Ramón Reyes as she met with members of the National Council of the Spanish Association Against Cancer, an organization committed to showing the reality of cancer in Spain and contributing to the fight against the disease.
She cut an elegant figure in a recycled fur-trimmed cape by Carolina Herrera paired with a blouse and leather skirt by Boss.
Letizia completed the look with a clutch by Nina Ricci and leather pumps by Magrit, both worn on previous engagements.

The queen drew attention to her eyes with black eyeliner while she used an eyebrow pencil to thicken her brows and frame her face.
She kept the makeup light on her skin by opting for a very subtle highlight and perfectly matched foundation.
Despite her face mask, she looked glamorous with her glossy brunette hair slicked back and her signature off-center parting.
The meeting provided an opportunity for Letizia to learn about the association’s achievements in 2021, while also discussing future projects and challenges that may lie ahead in the coming year.
She last visited in July 201 when the association was celebrating 50 years of cancer research.

They have continued their hard work and have since planned to launch a campaign to highlight the inequalities faced by people living with cancer in Spain.
Another challenge for the coming year is the establishment of the Cancer Epidemiological Information System in Spain together with the Network Biomedical Research Center Consortium (Ciber) of the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII).
The association also hopes to improve care for patients and their families by promoting digital care and volunteerism.
Queen Letizia (pictured) was told by the association that “we’re not all the same when it comes to cancer”.
Participants included Vice-Treasurer of the AECC National Council and President of the AECC Nominating and Compensation Committee Carmen Recio, Vice-President of the AECC Science Foundation Nieves Mijimolle and Member of the AECC National Council María Cortin.
The Associates made it clear to Queen Letizia that “cancer is the same for everyone, but we are not all the same when it comes to cancer”.
As Permanent Honorary President of the AECC since 2010, Queen Letizia frequently attends meetings and shows interest in their ongoing projects.
Today’s engagement is part of a busy week for the Queen, who has tomorrow’s Luis Carandell Journalism Awards ceremony on her agenda.
