Queen Letizia has been serving some seriously stylish energy during her state visit to the Netherlands with her husband King Felipe. 

The Spanish Queen, 51, was spotted on a morning excursion with Queen Máxima looking radiant in a bright colour block moment. The ever-stylish royal pinned her look to a brilliant bright red fitted dress with a round neckline and three-quarter-length bell sleeves.

The cinched dress was teamed with a clashing candy pink coat in a shin-skimming length which was worn over her shoulders for an effortlessly cool feel. She added further pops of pink in her cerise slingbacks and coordinating leather bag.

Letizia's bob was styled straight and her makeup was worn in her go-style - pink-toned hues with a glossy lip. The finishing touch was added in the form of a stunning pair of drop earrings.

Meanwhile, her Dutch counterpart wowed in a more reserved hue. Queen Máxima looked chic in a mauve cinched coat dress with a belted waistline and heavy A-line skirt. She teamed her look with a Princess Beatrice-esque statement headband in a pebbled material. 

She also held a rhinestone-adorned clutch and rounded off her outfit with a pair of nude suede heels. The Argentinian-born Dutch royal invited the Spanish royal to the LAB6 cultural centre in Amsterdam.

Queen Letizia packed the best pieces from her wardrobe for her Dutch trip. She appeared alongside her husband and the Dutch royals including their 20-year-old daughter Princess Catharina-Amalia and King Willem-Alexander's mother Princess Beatrix, 86, at a state banquet on Wednesday night.

According to The Court Jeweller, Letizia was wearing the grand diamond and pearl loop tiara which once belonged to her husband's great-great-grandmother Queen Maria Cristina, as well as Queen Ena's gleaming floral-shaped diamond earrings.

Queen Letizia opted for a cobalt gown

She styled her jewels with an unusual cobalt ballgown from The 2nd Skin Co. with a rounded neck, trendy bow-adorned sleeves, and a belted waistline. The royal was seen sitting as they greeted 240 guests over 45 minutes due to a prolonged foot ailment.

The Spanish Queen also wowed at an official welcome ceremony at the Royal Palace. She opted for a gorgeous emerald green tweed dress from Moisés Nieto with a rounded neckline and caped full-length sleeves.
