After landing at Lisbon airport on Monday, September 27, the royal couple had lunch with the President of Portugal Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa. The trio had lunch at the Citadel Palace located in the seaside resort of Cascais. Although this lunch was particularly warm, the real purpose of the visit of Letizia from Spain and her husband is quite different. After lunch, they inaugurated the new Botton-Champalimaud pancreatic cancer center. The center is a structure housing “a day hospital, laboratories, surgery rooms and an intensive care unit, all equipped with the latest technology,” says Royal Central.
During this exit on the other side of the border, Queen Letizia of Spain remained true to her habits. She opted for recycling a beautiful white dress with small black dots. According to Paris Match, this is an extremely rare Emporio Armani dress. This is a dress with a slightly puffed bustier belted high enough on the waist. The sleeves of the dress have a kind of gusset ending in ruffles which give it volume. The skirt is a little pleated and is comfortably light for Queen Letizia of Spain. The outfit is perfect combined with the queen’s pair of black heels. She also opted for a small black handbag, without forgetting her white mask.
