Spain’s King Felipe and Queen Letizia stun in new royal portraits
The Spanish Royal Family released a stunning new portrait series in celebration of the new year.
Photographer Estela de Castro captured the family inside the Royal Palace of Madrid, showcasing King Felipe VI, Queen Letizia and their daughters Leonor 14 and Infanta Sofia, 12.
“It was all very easy. They are used to posing. They were relaxed and collaborating at all times,” De Castro told El Pais.
"The Kings knew my work and that’s why they decided that I was in charge of the photos. They didn’t put any conditions on me. They told me to do my job as I considered best."
Queen Letizia is wearing a stunning pink Carolina Herrera floral embroided gown and the Fleur de Lys tiara.
King Felipe ascended the throne on June 19 2014, following the abdication of his father King Juan Carlos I.
There are also more professional portraits of the Spanish Royal Family that have been released, as the King and Queen stand alongside their daughters.
