Queen Letizia of Spain recycles a tweed blazer dress she first wore 15 YEARS ago

She's known for her love of recycling and Queen Letizia of Spain upheld her thrifty reputation today, when presiding over a military ceremony. 

The royal mother-of-two, 48, sported a tweed dress that she first wore 15 years ago, as she attended the ceremony of the delivery of the National Flag to the ACAVIET (Aviation Academy of the Army) in Colmenar Viejo.

Letizia originally debuted the ensemble, by Spanish fashion designer Felipe Varela, for her eldest daughter Princess Leonor's christening in 2006.

The monarch, who is married to King Felipe VI, teamed her sophisticated blazer-style dress with coffee-coloured high heels, while adding a pop of sparkle with a baby blue bow brooch.

Looking the picture of elegance, Letizia kept her hair in a tight bun and boasted a smattering of glamorous makeup.

Putting safety first and in keeping with Covid-19 guidelines, Letizia could be seen wearing a mask which covered most of her face.

Keeping her jewellery to a minimum, Letizia completed her ensemble with a pair of dainty earrings and an oval-shaped gold ring.

When first wearing the tweed dress in 2006, the royal, who is also mother to Princess Sofía, 14, as well as her eldest, Leonor, 15, sported elegant drop earrings while keeping her hair down.

Earlier this week, Letizia stepped out in style in a recycled high-street dress which she wore for a third time as she attended the Red Cross Fundraising Day in Madrid.

The royal put her best fashion foot forward in a £69.99 floral pattered dress from Zara which she first wore when she hosted an audience for medical representatives at Madrid's Zarzuela Palace in October 2017.

She then opted for the long-sleeved summer gown again during a visit to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao in July last year. 

But the mother-of-two gave the frock a whole new look most recently by pairing it with some trendy metallic pink block heels rather than the nude wedges and berry hue pumps she had worn it with previously. 

The monarch wore her brown hair down and loose with a simple curl at the end, and showed off her natural beauty by keeping her make-up simple - adding just a smokey eye. 

The event was held on occasion of the World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day under the motto 'From Society for Society.'
