King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain are currently on their first official visit to Cuba. The trip, which coincides with the celebrations of Havana's 500th anniversary, has featured breezy, beautiful attire -- and some chic casual jewels.

The royal couple touched down at Jose Marti International Airport in Havana on Monday evening. Letizia's diamond stud earrings were tucked behind her hair in most images from the arrival.

The official events of the three-day visit began on Tuesday with a welcome ceremony at the Revolution Palace in Havana. Felipe and Letizia were welcomed by President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who took office only a few weeks ago, and his wife, First Lady Lis Cuesta.

Felipe and Letizia also offered a floral tribute at the Jose Marti Memorial in the Plaza de la Revolution.

With her polka-dot dress, Letizia wore a pair of small gold hoop earrings designed to look like bamboo.

Later in the day, the royal couple changed into more casual attire for a visit to La Havana Vieja.

Letizia changed her dress, but not her earrings, wearing the same bamboo-style gold hoops that she wore for the morning's events.

Both Letizia and Felipe did wear one additional accessory -- sunglasses. (Letizia's are from Carolina Herrera.)

On Tuesday evening, Felipe and Letizia visited the Alicia Alonso Gran Theater, where they viewed the "Espana y Cuba: Contigo en la Distancia" exhibition and watched a dance performance.

Letizia wore Spain's national colors -- red and gold -- for the theater gala.

She also wore my favorite pair of earrings from the visit so far: these delicate diamond starburst earrings, which added considerable sparkle to her outfit.

Once again, her gold ring was also visible on her left hand.
