What will Princess Letizia of Spain will wear at the coronation? To the surprise of the Spanish people, today, on June 2 2014, King Juan Carlos I of Spain has abdicated. He has several political problems and above all, health problems.
Now, his son Prince Felipe of Asturias will be proclaimed King of Spain, under the name of Felipe VI, within 4 or 6 weeks.
There are many questions, and one of them is about the coronation. Where and how will it be? What role will the elegant wife of Prince Felipe play?
Princess Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano is the wife of Prince Felipe of Asturias. The wedding took place on 22 May 2004 in the Cathedral Santa Maria la Real de la Almudena in Madrid. It was the first royal wedding in this cathedral, which was consecrated by Pope John Paul II in 1993. Before her marriage to the prince, Princess Letizia was a journalist and news anchor.
Then, everything seems to be unusual with this couple. Before them, Spanish royal family married in San Jeronimo church in Madrid. And never before, Spain had a princess of not royal blood.
Currently, the Spanish political situation is critical, and the monarchy no longer has many supporters. Then, the coronation must be austere. Maybe a Te Deum and nothing more. Anyway, people are asking about the dress that Princess Leticia will wear that day.
Princess Letizia of Spain is a handsome woman, really elegant and supportive of the Spanish fashion. Then, it’s clear that she will wear something design by a Spanish fashion designer. Remember that her wedding dress was designed by Manuel Pertegaz, and she supports Spanish designers, from couturiers such as Felipe Varela and Lorenzo Caprile to Zara and Mango.
Princess Letizia has always said that Queen Sofia of Spain is her example. At her coronation, Queen Sofia wore a plain fuchsia dress, very elegant but discrete, and few jewelry.
For sure, Princess Letizia will follow this style. Few jewels and a very discrete dress. Maybe she’d like something more sophisticated, but the Spanish situation advises to follow the style of Queen Sofia. It’s better to leave diamond tiaras for another time, when Spanish people had work and the political left is not calling for the Third Republic.
