The King and Queen of Spain headed to Cadiz this week, and Queen Letizia wore a bright springtime ensemble—including bright peacock feather earrings—for the occasion.
On Monday, King Felipe and Queen Letizia arrived at the Falla Theater in Cadiz to attend the 9th International Congress of the Spanish Language. The congress is a meeting of hundreds of experts discussing the status and evolution of the Spanish language. The meeting, which is held every three years, was originally scheduled to take place in Arequipa, Peru, but ongoing political issues in that nation required the conference to be moved to Spain.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia greeted members of the public who had gathered during a walkabout.
For the opening of the congress, Queen Letizia wore a springtime outfit in pastel shades. Her light purple dress is from a Spanish brand, Cho Atelier, based in Seville.
She accessorized with a colorful pair of statement earrings that have been in her jewelry box for several years.
The earrings, which come from Spanish jewelry designer Alexandra Plata, have a peacock feather design.
Here’s a closer view of the earrings as worn by Letizia in Cadiz on Monday.
And here’s a look at the earrings from the designer. They’re made of rose gold-plated sterling silver and set with a variety of multi-precious gemstones.
Queen Letizia’s first appearance in the earrings was nearly three years ago. She wore them in June 2020 for a visit to Madrid’s Museo del Prado.
She also wore them this January for a meeting at the Royal Spanish Academy headquarters in Madrid.
Letizia’s only other piece of jewelry for this week’s visit to Cadiz was her Coreterno ring, worn on the index finger of her left hand.
The ring, which she debuted earlier this year, is engraved with the final line of Dante’s Divine Comedy, “Amor che tutto move” (“Love moves everything”).
