The collarless Carolina Herrera tailored leather jacket comes with large buttons on the front, but the mother-of-two sported it open. 

She wore it over the knitted black dress, which had a boat neck, with a leather red belt to accentuate her petite waist.

Stylish Letizia matched her other accessories to her jacket, with a pair of red stilettos and a red clutch bag. 

She let the clothes do the talking and scaled her accessories back, with her favourite Karen Hallam ring and a pair of shimmery earrings shared like double daggers by Gold&Roses.

She was wearing a face covering in line with Spanish coronavirus guidelines but Letizia still donned her usually glamourous makeup underneath. 

A dash of bronzer highlighted her cheekbones, and her signature smoky eye brought drama to the outfit. 

Her shiny brown tresses were styled in a sleek, straight blow-dry. 

The forum, which is in its 11th edition, aims to discuss inequity in cancer treatment around the country. 

Letizia is the Honourary President of the Spanish Association Against Cancer and has been working closely with researchers and charities since King Felipe VI ascended the throne in 2014.
