Spain's Queen Letizia and King Felipe break royal protocol in unusual way


The monarchs started the tour by visiting the Canary Islands in hopes to boost Spanish tourism after Spain opened its borders on June 21. Queen Letizia wore a floral grey dress and some white spandril wedges, with her hair styled in an effortless ponytail.

Her and King Felipe VI greeted the crowds that gathered to see them by bumping their elbows as a preventive measure to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

The royal couple then posed near a beach for photographers without their masks on.

The monarchs visited Perez Galdos’ House Museum to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Spanish author’s death.

The royal visit also coincided with a festivity that takes place every summer on the island, from June 23 to 24.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria celebrates its origins yearly, with its founding dating back to the year 1478.

Letizia’s dress featured floral embellishments and over-the-ankle length, appropriately paired up with some stylish wedges.

Spain’s Queen styled her glossy brunette locks in a ponytail to go with her natural looking makeup.

King Felipe sported black trousers and a cream blazer during the engagement.

Last week, the monarch’s daughters, Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia, joined them during the reopening of a Madrid theatre.

The event, a contemporary flamenco performance at Teatros del Canal, coincided with the sixth anniversary of the King’s coronation.

The engagement was also a show of support toward the country’s cultural sector amid the pandemic crisis.

All four members of the royal family worse face masks as they walked toward the Teatros del Canal last Friday.

Upon their arrival, the press and members of the public were asked to keep a safe distance between them and the Spanish royals.
