Phew! Queen Letizia nearly loses a priceless piece of jewelry due to a wardrobe malfunction.
QUEEN LETIZIA has been seen nearly losing a priceless piece of jewelry as members of the Spanish royal family prepare to resume their royal duties in 2022.
As the couple appeared at the Pascua Militar ceremony at the Palacio Real de Madrid on Thursday, Queen Letizia, 49, needed her husband, King Felipe, 53, to assist in the recovery of the jewel.
During the parade, the jewel, a brooch belonging to Queen Ena, fell from Letizia’s dress.
The maternal granddaughter of Queen Victoria, Queen Ena, or Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, was Scottish-born.
In 1906, she married King Alfonso XIII of Spain and served as Queen Consort until the King’s exile.
On the brooch, a large grey pearl was encircled by a cluster of diamonds and a drop pearl.
The appearance of Queen Letizia marked the blue-blooded Spaniards’ return to royal duties in 2022.
The Queen may have also been wearing a new piece of jewelry, according to keen observers of the Spanish Royal Family.
“Queen Letizia has pierced her left ear for the second time!” wrote Twitter user CoutureAndRoyals.
“It appears that the new earring is a small silver ball or a diamond.”
Letizia wore the stud with a pair of hoop earrings.
Letizia completed her ensemble with a satin navy gown and a black cape.
Felipe, on the other hand, was dressed in military garb.
COVID-19 continues to grip the continent, so guests wore face masks during the event.
Spain had 101,125 confirmed coronavirus cases as of January 5th, according to the World Health Organization.
