Once again, Queen Letizia delved into her mother-in-law's jewelry collection, wearing a pair of diamond and ruby earrings previously worn by Queen Sofia.

Letizia has worn this pair of earrings in public before. Her most memorable appearance in the earrings, without a doubt, was at the wedding of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark in Copenhagen in 2004. On that occasion, Letizia wore the earrings with a pair of diamond and ruby clips that belonged to her husband's grandmother, the Countess of Barcelona.

For today's meeting, Letizia paired the earrings with a dress that featured Japanese-inspired fabrics and draping.

The last two Spanish state visits make one thing abundantly clear: Queen Sofia has opened up her jewel collection to her daughter-in-law in a major way!
