It's hard not to fall even a little bit in love with Spain's Queen Letizia's fashion choices.

The 44-year-old joined her husband King Felipe in Madrid on Tuesday to meet Slovenian President Borut Pahor for a state visit, and much like Britain's Kate Middleton, she has developed a penchant for recycling outfits.

The mother-of-two opted for a white peplum top by Hugo Boss, which she previously wore last year and a pair of black cigarette trousers by the brand, finishing off with a pair of black leather pumps by her favourite shoe brand - Magrit, which appears to be the Christian Louboutin of Spain.

It's been a busy week for the Spanish royals - on Monday, Letizia, a former tv journalist, wore another Hugo Boss ensemble for an official event: this time, a pair of red trousers and silk colour block blouse.

Unlike Britain's royals, her style is more modern and while she often wears modest length skirts and high necklines, you would never catch her in a fascinator or a modest heel.
