Queen Letizia of Spain put safety first with a mask as she headed to a school to mark the beginning of the new term.

The Spanish Queen, 47, headed to the Nuestra Señora del Patrocinio College in Milagro, Navarra to mark the start of the Spanish academic year. 

Letizia’s own daughters Infanta Leonor, 14, and Sofia, 13, were forced to quarantine two days after heading back to school after a classmate tested positive to Covid-19.

Wearing a pair of stylish black culottes and a grey top, the Spanish royal toured the premises with school staff, who were also wearing masks.

For today’s engagement, Letizia picked a smart casual outfit with a pair of black culottes.

She recycled a £25 sleeveless grey top from Zara that revealed her toned arms and petite waist with a belt of the same fabric. 

She accessorised with black platform heels tied at her ankles with a wide black bow. 

The Queen kept it simple, and had styled her dark glossy locks in a sleek and ponytail.

Only wearing a favourite ring with small golden hoop earrings, Letizia brought the focus to her beautiful hazelnut eyes with a dash of eyeliner and eyeshadow. 

She looked relaxed and in high spirit during the event which saw her meet the school staff. 

She later addressed the school’s student, who were all wearing masks. 

The Spanish school term began last week on Wednesday 9 September and saw Letizia’s owner daughters return back to school after months of studying from home.

However, it was not long before a classmate in Princess Leonor’s year tested positive to the virus, sending the royal sisters into a two-week-long quarantine period. 

It was said at the time that Leonor and Sofia would have to take coronavirus tests themselves.  

This comes as Spain is experiencing a resurgence in covid-19 cases, having become the first country in Western Europe to register  500,000 infections, with a second surge in cases that coincided with schools reopening.

Princess Leonor arrived at school for the first day on Wednesday 9 and was dropped off by her father King Felipe.

Both appeared relaxed as they arrived, before Princess Leonor, who is heir to the throne, stepped out of the vehicle and was temperature checked by a member of staff.

She went on to accompany her younger sister for her first day on Friday this week 

It is believed that Princess Leonor started her fourth year of secondary education, while her younger sister Princess Sofia began her second year at the school.

It has been a challenging summer for the Spanish royal family, after runaway former King Juan Carlos caused shockwaves around the country in August by announcing he was leaving his homeland.

Princess Leonor has now been deemed by some as a saviour of the monarchy, with The Times writing: ‘Attention must turn to the future if the Bourbon monarchy is to survive.

‘It is a responsibility that rests of the shoulders of Leonor, and the reigning king, Felipe VI, knows that, as he introduces her to the country while trying to modernise the monarchy.’
