Spanish Royals Queen Letizia and King Felipe VI Mourn Loss of Cousin at Funeral Service: Couple Displays Elegance and Sorrow in Madrid

Queen Letizia of Spain and King Felipe VI appeared solemn as they arrived at the funeral of Fernando Gomez-Acebo, the king’s cousin, at Castrense Cathedral in Madrid.

The occasion served as a moment of reflection and mourning for the royal couple, who paid their respects to Gomez-Acebo, a victim of Covid-19.

Sombre Yet Elegant Attire

Both Queen Letizia and King Felipe VI chose attire befitting the somber atmosphere of the funeral.

Queen Letizia opted for a form-fitting black frock adorned with frayed detailing, complemented by a black leather handbag and a pearl brooch. Keeping her makeup subtle, she wore her brunette locks in a sleek style.

King Felipe VI wore a navy blue double-breasted blazer and matching trousers, paired with a crisp white shirt and a black tie.

Previous Royal Engagements

The funeral attendance follows a series of other notable events attended by the royal couple. Queen Letizia recently appeared at a remembrance service for victims of terrorism, where she wore a sophisticated navy long-sleeved gown.

Prior to that, she dazzled in red leather trousers at the National Sports Awards in Madrid, accompanied by King Felipe VI.

Despite her sartorial prowess, Letizia encountered a humorous moment when attempting to lift a large trophy during the ceremony.

Recognition of Athletes

During their attendance at the National Sports Awards, Queen Letizia and King Felipe VI presented honors to athletes, including skier Ester Ledecka.

The royal couple’s participation in such events underscores their commitment to acknowledging and celebrating sporting achievements within Spain.
