Letizia swept her glossy brunette hair into a trendsetting bun with a center parting to reveal bejeweled earrings from the Grisogono.

She chose to keep accessories relatively simple by completing her look with a clutch from Lidia Faro, while opting for glamorous makeup with pink lipstick and bronze eyeshadow.

King Felipe and King Carl Gustaf seemed to have coordinated, as both looked neat in black suits with white shirts.

Meanwhile, Queen Silvia stepped out in a gray outfit with lace details and her brown hair styled in voluminous waves.

The 77-year-old wore a striking pink lipstick and adorned with pearls.

All four royals emerged in good spirits as they posed for photos at the reception.

The event follows a busy day for the Spanish royal family, with King Felipe meeting with businessmen and then attending the inauguration of the Swedish-Spain Business Seminar.

He spoke and said: ‘Innovation allows us to maximize our technological and industrial potential, improve the competitiveness of companies and make companies stronger, more flexible and resilient and create better jobs.

“This message has mostly stuck here, so it comes as no surprise that the European Commission has voted Sweden the ‘most innovative country in the European Union’ for the past 11 years.

‘You are a good example for other European countries. In 2021, the latest report on the Digital Economy and Society Index, prepared by the Commission, points out that Spain is well above the European average. We are the 3rd country in the EU with the best connectivity.’

Queen Letizia, meanwhile, accompanied Queen Silvia to the Bernadotte Library at the Royal Palace in Stockholm to participate in a seminar on language, literature and translation, with the collaboration of the Cervantes Institute and the Swedish Institute.

The seminar emphasized the importance of literary translation for the promotion of literature and the long-term cultural exchange between Spain and Sweden.

King Felipe then accompanied by King Carl Gustaf visited the Royal Institute of Technology KTH, before rejoining Letizia for a traditional lunch in the Golden Hall of the City Hall.

The busy royal later visited the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and met members of the Association of Spanish Scientists for tonight’s reception.

Queen Letizia and King Felipe have attended a series of meetings over the past two days to strengthen Spain’s ties with Sweden.

Sweden’s Hispanic community has grown steadily over the past decade, reaching 37.12 percent in five years, as Spaniards emigrate to take advantage of employment opportunities.
