Like mother, like daughter...

Queen Letizia has been picking up style tips from her daughter Princess Sofia, or else the Spanish princess has been taking note of her mother's summer wardrobe.

The Spanish royal family posed for adorable snaps at the Marivent Palace on the island of Mallorca today.

Spanish King Felipe VI was joined by his wife, Queen Letizia and his daughters, Spanish crown princess Leonor and Princess Sofia at their summer home.

The royal family traditionally spends its summer holidays at the palace on the Spanish island.

But it was the fashion choices that had the press smiling.

Queen Letizia, famed for her casual yet chic style, wore the same white cotton top as her youngest daughter for the family's photo-call.

Letizia became the country's matriarch when her husband Felipe ascended to the throne in June 2014 after the abdication of his father Juan Carlos I.
