The entire Spanish royal family attended the ceremony today for the Order of Civic Merit at the Royal Palace in Madrid. The event was attended by Queen Letizia, 48, and King Philip VI, 53, as well as their two daughters, 15-year-old Leonor and 13-year-old Sophia.
The Order of Civil Merit was awarded today to 24 people who have contributed to the development of health care during the pandemic. In rewarding outstanding citizens, the King thanked them for being on the front lines during the most critical moments of the health crisis.
For the official ceremony, Queen Letizia, famous for her elegant outfits, and Infanta Sofia chose salmon-colored dresses to match the king’s tie. By the way, we can say that this shade has recently become a fashionable favorite of the queen. Princess Leonor also stood out with the color of her outfit – she had a blue dress to match her eyes.
In recent months, the eldest daughter of the monarchs has been a frequent guest at the royal family’s official events. In March, Leonor had her first independent publication: she attended the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Cervantes Institute in Madrid. In April, she attended the launching ceremony of the S-81 Isaac Peral nuclear submarine with her parents and sister.
Recall that King Philip came to the throne after the abdication of his father, King Juan Carlos I, in 2014.
