Queen Letizia of Spain showcased her typically elegant style as she welcomed the President and First Lady of Israel today.

Before posing for photos on the steps, Letizia whipped off the classic overcoat to reveal a fitted plum-coloured frock.

President Reuven Rivlin and his wife Nechama are on the first day of a three-day visit marking 30 years of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

The trip will include meetings with leading figures in the Spanish Jewish community, as well as a banquet hosted by the king and queen.

The visit comes as Spain remains gripped by the constitutional crisis over Catalonia, with deposed Catalan president Carles Puigdemont and four of his ex-ministers being freed by authorities in Belgium after handing themselves over to police.

However any concerns seemed far from the minds of the royal couple today, who put on a warm reception for their guests.

Letizia wrapped up against the winter chill in her classic trench coat, which she paired with suede mushroom-coloured heels.

She completed the look with a matching metallic clutch.

The mother-of-two wore the raincoat over a simple purple fit-and-flare dress which showcased her slender figure.

Meanwhile King Felipe, 49, looked dapper in a pin-striped suit, white shirt and blue floral tie.
