Queen Letizia of Spain looks smart in a black cape at a climate change conference in Madrid

Queen Letizia appeared business-like in a black cape blazer as she arrived at a Climate conference in Madrid today.

Arriving at the IFEMA institute in Madrid, the mother-of-two, 47, teamed the black  blazer with a smart grey checkered pencil dress.

Letizia looked stylish as she joined Qu Dongyu, the director-general of the food and agriculture organisation of the United Nations and Luis Planas Puchades, the Spanish minister of agriculture, fisheries and food, for a meeting at the conference. 

The COP25 climate change conference has become the main instrument for advancing commitments of states against the acceleration of human-induced climate change, since it’s adoption in 1992.

Adding height to her look, the mother-of-two sported a pair of silver slingback heels and completed the look with a skinny black belt.

Looking stylish from head to toe, the former journalist wore her hair loose in a voluminous, well-coiffed waves, while showing off a peak of her sparkling earrings underneath.

A natural beauty, the royal sported eye shadow, mascara, and a layer of black eyeliner to her look which she complimented with a light layer of bronzer and dark pink lip. 

The UN COP25 Climate Summit was organised under the Presidency of Chile, along with the logistical support of the Government of Spain.

The COP meet periodically to evaluate their achievements and to discuss working towards new objectives. This year’s conference was set to take place in Santiago, Chile but was moved to Madrid due to an internal situation.

Last week Queen Letizia and Felipe made remarks that urged the importance of acting now on climate change, as they warned that borders can’t stop the environmental concern.

Speaking at the reception, Royal Central reported that King Felipe said: ‘No border can protect us from the effects of climate change must act with leadership and determination…We must act with leadership, and we must act with resolve.’
