On Tuesday March 29, King Felipe VI, 54, and Queen Letizia of Spain, 49, were present at the service in memory of Prince Philip. An event that took place at Westminster Abbey, London. On Thursday March 31, Queen Letizia of Spain was already back to her royal engagements. This by awarding the prizes of the 2nd Festival of school short films “Diversity in Series: stories that deserve to be told”. This is an opportunity to reward five winners. This project was launched by the FAD or Foundation for Aid Against Drug Addiction during the 2020/2021 school year. A project aimed at students in secondary education and vocational training. The objective of the festival being to “claim the importance of diversity as a fundamental value for coexistence and to generate new vocations, in particular by motivating young creators towards a cinema engaged in society”, affirms the Palace.
This Festival is organized in parallel with workshops in schools. This is to get students working on diversity in the classroom. For this second edition, more than 900 young people from different educational centers participated. In all, the event presented more than 109 scenarios of short films revolving around the theme of diversity.

As in all her official outings, Queen Letizia of Spain, 49, was sublime during this event which took place in Madrid. The mother of Princess Leonor, 16, and Infanta Sofia, 14, showed up to the Festival in an out-of-the-ordinary two-tone outfit. Indeed, Letizia of Spain had worn a jacket that Princess Leonor, her eldest daughter, had already worn. It is a white jacket signed Carolina Herrera that the monarch had thrown over her shoulders.
Note that the wife of King Felipe VI of Spain had never worn this jacket in public. It was the princess who did it in October 2020 in Oviedo. Which leaves room for questions, in particular about the real owner of the jacket. In any case, it went perfectly with the two-tone outfit of Queen Letizia of Spain. Moreover, Queen Letizia of Spain associated it with her black and white pencil skirt from Roberto Verino. The royal also decided to don a black long-sleeved top and matching pumps.
