Royal women have at least one trait in common: impeccable taste in clothes. Granted, all of them need to dress to impress for the many public engagements they attend (galas, palace dinners, royal tours, etc.), and, like other aspects of their lives, there is surely a staff to assist them. But style seems to run through their veins. This much is true for Queen Letizia of Spain, who can hold her own amongst best-dressed royals, like Meghan Markle and Queen Rania of Jordan.

Letizia, now 47, married King Felipe VI of Spain in 2004 and, since then, has amassed quite the designer wardrobe. Carolina Herrera, Hugo Boss, Felipe Varela, the names are endless. Perhaps her keen sense in fashion is enhanced by her brilliance: Prior to becoming queen, Letizia worked as a journalist for ABC, EFE, and CNN+ (she's the first Spanish queen to have been born a commoner). Queen Letizia doesn't just dress worldly, she is worldly. See her best looks, ahead.
