Green with envy! Queen Letizia of Spain stuns in a recycled Maje floral emerald dress as she joins King Felipe at new art exhibition in Grenada

  • Spanish Queen, 48, attended Museum of Fine Arts inside the Palace of Carlos V 
  • Joined husband, 53, in Granada for ‘Odaliscas. From Ingres to Picasso’ today
  • Exhibition celebrates work of artists who created paintings around odalisques

Queen Letizia of Spain was the epitome of summer chic as she sported a floral emerald dress while joining King Felipe at a new art exhibition.

The Spanish Queen, 48, attended the opening of ‘Odaliscas: From Ingres to Picasso’ at the Museum of Fine Arts inside the Palace of Carlos V at Alhambra, in Granada on Thursday. 

For the occasion, she sported the floaty number from Maje, which featured an asymmetric hemline and highlighted her slender waist.

Known for re-wearing her favourite pieces, it was the third time the monarch has sported the floral number after first wearing on a visit to Ovideo Archeology Museum in July 2019, and again last summer on a trip to Palma de Mallorca.

The mother-of-two often opts for lighter colours during the summer months, and kept cool in the lightweight chiffon fabric.

She added height to her petite frame with a pair of cream court heels and toted a complementary plum clutch under her arm. 

Keeping safe with a white face covering, she kept her makeup look minimal and wore her raven locks in sleek lines. 

Meanwhile, King Felipe, 53, opted for a grey suit and navy tie, which he wore with a blue pinstripe shirt.

No stranger to reutilising her wardrobe to create new looks, she has sported the dress on a number of occasions since debuting it in July 2019.   

The exhibition celebrates the work of artists who created paintings of odalisques, or concubines, such as Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and Pablo Picasso. 

A champion of the arts, she attended the inauguration of Berlanguiano exhibition in Madrid on Wednesday. 

The exhibit celebrates the centenary of the birth of late Spanish film director and screenwriter Luis García Berlanga 

 For the occasion, she sported the floaty number, which featured an asymmetric hemline and highlighted her slender waist and paired it with cream court heels and a purple bag 

Berlanga is regarded as one of the most significant writers of 20th century Spanish culture. 

The exhibition has been curated by Esperanza G. Claver to bring together more than 170 photographs from different archives and public and private photographic collections.

Letizia enjoyed a long career in TV and newspaper reporting before marrying her husband King Felipe in 2004.

She worked for the La Nueva Espana before moving on to the ABC, a popular national newspaper.

She then worked for the EFE news agency, a Mexican local paper Siglo 21, the Spanish version of Bloomberg, before moving to CNN+. 

When she met her husband-to-be, Letizia was working for the popular TV channel 24Horas as both a breaking news reporter and anchor for their popular Telediaro 2 evening news bulletin.  

She met Felipe VI at a dinner party in 2002, and the pair enjoyed an instant connection, leading to their royal wedding in May 2004. 

The former newsreader is the granddaughter of a taxi driver and the eldest daughter of Jesús José Ortiz Álvarez, a journalist, and first wife María de la Paloma Rocasolano Rodríguez, a nurse and hospital union representative.

She later gained an MA in Audiovisual Journalism at the Institute for Studies in Audiovisual Journalism.
