King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain's historic visit to Cuba took a glamorous turn when they attended two flashy receptions yesterday.
Letizia, 47, accompanied by her husband Felipe, 51, showed her stylish wardrobe on day two of their four-day visit.
The royal started her evening in a sleeveless turquoise dress while attending a reception for the Spanish community at the Alicia Alonso Gran Theater in La Havana.
She then turned into a beautiful pink organza dress, with sheer sleeves and a bow detail, when she arrived at a reception at the Spanish embassy.
The couple is on their first official visit to Cuba and will spend their time celebrating the 500th anniversary of Havana on November 16.

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, the first Spanish princes who visited the former colony in 500 years, looked cheerfully at their best formal clothing.
Letizia combined her turquoise look with a coordinating envelope bag with intricate stud detail, stiletto heels and a pair of elegant silver earrings added to complete the look.
Later she still wore her brown hair tied in an elegant ponytail, but put on a pair of bare pointed heels and was seen without a bag.
Earlier that day the Spanish princes explored it sights of old Havana and were seen during a visit to Palacio de los Capitanes Generales, the former official residence of the governors of Havana, which is now home to the capital museum of the city of Havana.

They were given a tour of the oldest square in the city, Plaza de Armas, before visiting El Templete, a museum commemorating the first mass and city council in the city.
The couple, who have two daughters – Leonor, princess of Asturias, 14 and Infanta Sofía of Spain, 12 – was seen admiring the beautiful architecture passing by El Templete, which is home to three large oil paintings by French artist Jean Baptiste Vermay.
The museum is located on the Plaza de Armas in Old Havana, a paved square with a traditional market, a small park, Cuban entertainment and restaurants.
Every year, on November 16, on the occasion of the establishment of Havana, a procession takes place on the Plaza de Armas to commemorate the establishment of the city.
Queen Letizia and King Felipe were officially welcomed in Cuba with a ceremony on Tuesday in the Revolution Palace, after arriving in the former colony on Monday.

Spain is Cuba's third largest economic partner – after China and Venezuela – with $ 1.39 billion in 2018, and the former colony was one of the last to become independent of Madrid in 1898.
The four-day tour aims to emphasize and strengthen ties between Spain and Cuba, with the royal family meeting important cultural and entrepreneurial figures and marking the 500th anniversary of Havana, founded on November 16, 1519.
Since their arrival on the island, King Felipe and Queen Letizia have been welcomed by the Spanish ambassador to Cuba, Juan Fernández Trigo, the ambassador of Cuba to Spain, Gustavo Machín and the foreign minister of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez.
However, the broader political context is anything but festive, since relations with the United States have weakened considerably since President Donald Trump replaced Barack Obama almost three years ago.

Washington accuses Cuba of suppressing its people and providing military support to the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, which could thwart an American attempt to force the socialist leader in favor of President Juan Guaido.
Last month, Washington announced the suspension of all flights from the US to Cuba except Havana, as the Trump government continues to roll back the improved ties that Obama has fueled.
Cuba has increasingly focused on traditional allies Russia and Venezuela for support, but also on the European Union.
"Faced with the intimidation of Cuba by the Trump government, the journey of the royal couple to the island can be interpreted as supporting economic, political, cultural relations and cooperation between Cuba and Spain," said Raynier Pellon, an expert in the center for international political research in Havana.

For Cuban researcher Arturo Lopez-Levy of Holy Names University in the US, it is & # 39; a clear message to the White House & # 39 ;.
Cuba's third largest economic partner – after China and Venezuela – with $ 1.39 billion in 2018, has not discouraged Spain from criticizing Trump & # 39; s policy.
Foreign Minister Josep Borrell, who accompanies the royal couple, destroyed the Trump government in May for a & # 39; abuse of power & # 39; after Washington gave a green light a month earlier to Cuban exiles to use US courts to prosecute private companies and the Cuban government nationalized properties after the 1959 revolution.
