'Style Queen': UK media pours praise on HRH Letizia's elegant attire

Described as an 'absolute goddess in green' by Hello magazine and as having a 'unique style' by the Daily Mail, HRH Letitizia was shown 'wrapping up warm' in recent photos against chilly winds in the mid-western UK county of Berkshire.

Letizia, 52, and King Felipe VI had travelled to St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle for a thanksgiving service in honour of King Constantine II of Greece, who passed away a year ago in January in his native Athens aged 82.

The Greek Royal family is directly and closely related to those of Britain and Spain – Felipe VI's mother, Queen Sofía, is originally Greek and her father's cousin was Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who was married to the late British Queen Elizabeth II.

HRH Elizabeth II was third cousin to both Prince Philip and to Felipe VI's parents, King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofía – both still living – meaning King Felipe of Spain is a blood relative of Britain's King Charles III, as well as nephew to the late Constantine III.

Felipe VI and Letizia joined Charles III's wife, Queen Camilla, and his nieces Princess Beatrice and Zara Tindall, representing the UK Royal family in light of serious health issues that have left two of its key figureheads out of action.

Charles III is in treatment for an undisclosed type of cancer, and Princess Catherine of Wales is recovering from undefined abdominal surgery, meaning King Charles' son Prince William of Wales is having to split himself between his father, wife and children, and what Royal duties he can fit in between them.
