During their outing, the couple visited Perez Galdos’ House Museum on the occasion of the 100 year anniversary of the renowned Spanish novelist’s death.

Their tour of the area coincides with the usual commemoration from June 23 to 24 of the origins of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria – with the city celebrating its 1478 founding every summer.

With a billowing skirt, a V-shaped neckline, and a cinched-waist detail, Letizia’s frock showcased the royal’s slender frame perfectly.

Letizia teamed the dress, which was embellished with floral designs, with stylish white wedges.

She tied the look together by putting her glossy brunette hair in a ponytail and wearing subtle make-up.

Last week, the parents took their daughters, Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia, to the reopening of a Madrid theatre. 

The visit, for a contemporary flamenco performance at Teatros del Canal, coincided with the sixth anniversary of the King’s coronation.
