This royal might just be the most stylish of them all (and she LOVES a high street bargain!)

Would Meghan have dared wear leather culottes? Would she?!

Queen Letizia

You guys!

We have been so busy swooning over the British royals and their style, but between Meghan’s maternity perfection and never-set-a-foot-wrong Kate, it seems we have been missing out on some serious outfit inspiration from another European royal, who, we dare say, is actually even surpassing both Kate and Meghan in the fashion stakes.

Say hello to Queen Letizia of Spain – who, much like Meghan, is also a ‘commoner’ who married a Prince (Felipe, now the reigning King of Spain), has two adorable children (Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia) and, most importantly, knows how to dress for any occasion.

Queen Letizia

Yes, that’s right. This Madrid-based mama, who was actually a news reporter on Spanish TV before entering into royal life, never sets a foot wrong when it comes to style choices, and has even been known to wear super-sexy leather pants on official royal events.

45-year-old Letizia is also, like Kate, a big fan of high street favourites Zara and Massimo Dutti, and is frequently photographed in both. She also favours sexy pencil skirts and cropped jackets, but also, can rock a ball gown with the best of them, of course.[/caption]

Oh, and we love how this down-to-earth royal also takes her daughters to school herself every day, and is often snapped in dressed-down denim when doing so.

Some our favourite Letizia looks? Here you go:

While on their annual summer holiday at their Mallorca residence, we love how Letizia dresses down in these very comfy-looking silk pants and a simple white tee.

Would Kate have dared wear leather culottes? Would she?!

Looking summer pretty in a floral Zara number.

Spain’s style Queen knows that sometimes, you can’t beat a well-fitted pantsuit and flats.

She also knows you can never go wrong with your trusty little black dress.

We are swooning over this mama’s ‘just-hanging-with-the-kids’ style.

And her “we’re just a normal family on holidays” looks…

The ‘white jeans for summer’ trend? Letizia is nailing it, of course.

Oh, and her ‘heels, jeans and a black top’ for a date night with the hubs look? She is practically our style twin!

What do YOU think, guys? Are you loving Letizia’s Queen of cool style as much as we are? Or are you still Team Kate all the way?
